Sport Training Weight Rooms Are the Answer!

The answer to creating the most highly functional space for developing your athlete’s strength, speed, and agility are Rae Crowther Sport Training Weight Rooms.  Our Sport Training Rooms provide the best strength, movement, and instructional environment for athletes to train simultaneously.  Please note the heavy emphasis on the word SPORT.  This concept was started by legendary strength coach Steve Kenyon, who has spent 40 years training athletes. Rae Crowther Sport Training Weight Rooms create space and greatly improve functionality.  The Sport Training methodology centers around the YES, YES, YES philosophy.  Yes to exercises performed with free weights, Yes to exercises performed standing, Yes to multiple joint movements. 

What Specifically is a Sport Training weight Room?

A Sport Training Weight Room begins with a perimeter rack design.  The Sport Training Racks are placed around the outside of the room, on the perimeter of the room, which clears a large open space in the center of the room for various strength movements, speed, agility and of course coaching.  This allows the coach to ‘coach’ from the center of the room and command the room accordingly.  No athlete is hidden.  Typically we paint line and agility patterns in the center space, so there is no need to fold and unfold ladders, no wasted time.  We do all of this working within your budget.  We can provide weight rooms from $20,000 to $200,000.   You let us know how much “wow” factor you want and we supply the sauce!  We have supplied over 80 Sport Training Weight Rooms in the last 10 years.

What Is Special About Sport Training Racks?

We begin with the challenge of the High School football or strength coach who has to train 30 to 100 athletes simultaneously.   The second part of that challenge is it often has to be done in a weight room that is not large enough to accommodate all of those athletes.  We begin by creating space and organization.  The Sport Training Rack is critical to this design implementation.  At its most basic level a Sport Training Rack is essentially a simple device that holds a barbell.  At its most advanced level it’s a weight room in itself, in that it can allow multiple athletes to perform hundreds of diverse exercises. The primary focus of Sport Training Rack is to increase maximum strength with an emphasis on ground based explosive movements.  Movements that load the musculature and promote functional strength that enable athletes to run faster, hit harder, jump higher, and avoid injury.  We specialize in flush-to-the-floor racks and platforms that allow athletes to move inside the weight room unobstructed.  The racks don’t have feet or runners sticking out into the lifting area.   This increases the usable space on the floor about 3 feet per rack.  10 racks gain 30 feet, a big improvement in space. The platforms are made from wood, not rubber, and sink flush into the floor, with no edges.  The athletes perform most of their lifts on wood.  Our uncluttered designs allow athletes to work on unlimited strength and movements patterns.  In effect, we make the typical 2,000 square foot weight room feel like a 3,500 square foot weight room. This also translates to better organization and little maintenance. 

What Are the Killer B’s?

The Killer B’s are essential to the implementation of Sport Training Weight Room.  The Killer B’s are bars, bumper plates, med balls, wall balls, slam balls, dumbbells, bands, plyo boxes.  Each rack has its own set of Killer B’s,  or in some instances 2 racks share a set of Killer B’s.  The Killer B’s allow the coach and athlete a 100+ exercise menu.  All the Killer B’s have their exact storage location with specific made racks that are engineered to go with the whole system.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

Thanks to Strength Coach Steve Kenyon and Rae Crowther’s Sport Training Weight Room Design, Rancho Buena Vista High School has a state-of-the-art facility that screams safety, efficiency, and performance!  The 3,400 sq. ft. facility has wall-to-wall rubber flooring containing 21 recessed platforms with school logos.  The now spacious weight room has ten double-sided racks and a half rack that provides 21 self-contained training stations where we can do every exercise known to man. The training stations provide our students and athletes the ability to perform all variations of Olympic lifts (snatch, clean and jerk) and power lifting (squat, bench, and deadlift).  The racks also provide vertical plate storage, keeping our over 5,000 lbs of bumper plates off the floor.  The training stations greatly enhance our facility’s efficiency.  Based on our new design, we have made our existing facility seem like it has gained another 1,500 square feet. Strength is a top priority in the development of an athlete for all sports at the high school level.  Rancho Buena Vista High School is now blessed with one of the finest facilities of its kind in the entire country.  With the SST  design and Rae Crowther athletic performance training equipment, we expect to take our physical education and athletics program to the next level!
