Visit our Premiere Performance Center in Stoney Creek ON

Our first Canadian Performance Center is now open in Stoney Creek ON and hosted by Sports Specific Training.  The performance coaches at SST build individualized and specialized functional training programs that deliver for their athletes.  The goal of every program is simple … achieve results.

SST also believes in ballistic training – training that achieves not only increased strength, but also increased speed.  Every athlete wants to be fastest off the line, out of the block, or to the ball.  Functional training that includes ballistic exercises provides the speed and power athletes want.  Of course, good nutrition is central to any complete program, and SST can help there too.

“A perfect fit”

Cormax equipment allows athletes to train ballistically for both maximum explosive energy and maximum speed – in complete safety.  Jump squats with free weights can be dangerous, and injuries could be costly to the athlete and the team.  Cormax equipment will let you perform jump squats even up to your maximum capacity without the risk of injury!  Your coach can set the station so that the weight will not fall back down.  Could you lift more and train to a higher level if you knew you were completely safe?

Seeing is Believing

Stories and photos are good.  Videos are better.  But, seeing and using the equipment for yourself is without equal.  We dare you not to smile when you perform a bench press and feel and see the bar completely leave your hands.  When you train for explosive power and don’t have to hold back or halt the bar on the press, you’re training ballistically for maximum force.

Cormax Olympic StationTry the Olympic Lift by throwing the weight above your head.  We guarantee that you’ll feel like jumping out of the way the first time, but you’ll get used to seeing the way hang in mid air above your head and not come down.  In fact, follow the lift with a pull up on the bar – there’s an exercise that is impossible on any other equipment out there today.

“Unequaled safety”

Cormax equipment can be a fantastic addition to your training programs.  The safety is unequaled and the benefits are enormous.
