The Bravo has also been installed at the training facilities of championship side Nottingham Forest FC and at the home gym of boxer Ricky Hatton, highlighting its popularity in professional sport as a key piece of strength training equipment.
Nigel Ashley-Jones, Head of Performance at Sale Sharks, is looking forward to integrating the new CYBEX equipment in his training programmes: “The bottom line with athletic preparation is to provide direct strength transfer to the pitch. At Sale our policy is we are only as strong as our core. The Cybex Bravo provides us with an unlimited number of options to implement this philosophy. The Bravo is a functional training tool box with the added value of fitting nicely into corners making use of too often dead space in gyms. The storage options provided for all the attachments are a fantastic added bonus."
The arrival of the Bravo has added to a range of CYBEX equipment already in use at the facility, which includes a CYBEX FT360 Functional Trainer and a plate loaded Smith Press. As part of CYBEX’s strength training range, the Smith Press is designed to be heavy duty, space efficient and user friendly, whilst supporting the training needs of users at any level of fitness.
Based in Carrington, Sale’s High Performance Centre has undergone recent significant redevelopment, in preparation for the side who returned to pre-season training last month. Recognised as a Centre of Excellence, the facilities in Carrington are used by a number of professional sports teams, including Italy U18s, England U18s, England Rugby League and Manchester City FC Academy.
The install was managed in partnership with ABK Performance, a provider of sports programmes and training centres to sports clubs, educational establishments and athletic institutions.
