High-speed actions such as acceleration, maximal speed and agility are important in soccer performance. These factors were found to be relatively unrelated to one another. These findings suggest that specific testing and training regimens should be implemented for these different high-speed actions. Specificity in the direction and magnitude of horizontal force are important considerations here. […]

Power tests (squat and countermovement jump) are correlated with the three speed measures; quickness, acceleration and maximal speed in sprint running. Measures of 3 RM (Repetition Max) and isokinetic testing (different velocities) of knee flexion and extension were not found to be correlated with the three speed measures. This is not surprising considering the principle […]

Six tests of leg extensor strength and power were obtained. They all focused on the ability to generate force vertically. When these measures then were compared to agility performance (single and multiple correlation) no to weak relationships were established. The authors consequently call for a more specific and functional approach to testing. One important consideration […]

Strength and power training programs that focus on exercises performed bilaterally and in the vertical direction have mostly failed to improve change of direction performance. On the contrary training protocols that have utilized exercises that mimic change of direction, the ability to generate force in the horizontal direction, have had positive results on change of […]

Resisted training with a horizontal load has positive effects on sprint performance in professional and semiprofessional rugby players. Resisted sprint training with a constant load (13% of body weight) yielded positive effects on a number of factors, with the most important being an improved acceleration from a static start. These are important findings considering that […]

Researchers, trainers and clinicians have all suggested that to facilitate the greatest improvements to athletic performance, the resistance-training programme employed by an athlete must be adapted to meet the specific demands of their sport. Therefore, it is conceivable that one mechanical stimulus, or resistance type, may not be appropriate for all applications. Traditional free-, weight […]


“We are constantly investing in technology that makes sense for us and is easily integrated into our training process. In this regard both the Quantum and Sprint have been the best investments so far: it not just improves our training but also allows us to make better decisions as testing and training is merged into one smooth process. This is definitely the future in high performance sport.”

Arno Galmarini – Elite Training, Zurich

The 1080 sprint has been a great addition to my arsenal of tools to not only develop acceleration but also assess where my athletes are and what direction to take them. However, the possibilities of agility and overspeed work are endless. There is not a product on the market that comes close to the 1080 Sprint.

We find that the results we are able to get from the 1080 Quantum and MAP systems provide us with a unique window into understanding each of the athlete’s individual biomechanics strength and weaknesses. We can then use these systems to be able to train these weaknesses out and to improve on the strength that they already have. It provides a really unique and adaptable way to improve performance.

Jon Bowskill – The Bowskill Clinic, London

The sensitivity and control in the 1080 Quantum is a perfect tool to progress a patient from a painful state to gradually increased function and strength. This precision has shortened average rehabilitation times for my patients. The Quantum data allows me to share objective results on progression with each client whether it’s an athlete or patient in my corporate wellness program.

“As a young coach, I am always looking for every edge, and when I did my research on this product and got feedback from some of the coaches I respect in this business, I had to have it. My sprinters are addicted to the way it feels to achieve the speeds the 1080 Sprint allows them to. My athletes continue to love this machine, and two of them just made the Rio Olympic team.”

The 1080 Sprint is letting us push our bodies beyond what we would normally be able to do. We have women running over 11 meters per second and men running beyond world record phase. It’s doing things that we need to do to get their bodies used to running at the phase of world finalists and medalists.
