Anchor Point Training Tools

Here’s a quick overview to help you navigate the 2024 product line.

  • All the various widths, strengths, and lengths of APT resistance bands are warp-knit elasticized webbing. This construction of webbing bands is bare skin comfortable, durable, safe, and washable.
  • The first number in the product descriptions of APT webbing bands indicates the width of the band, and the second number is the length of the band.
  • The S-Band is our most recent band design. Compared to a loop band of similar length the S-Band provides a more gradual change in resistance. This product feature accommodates longer ranges of motion and a wider range of resistances than the loop design.
  • Heavy bands significantly benefit from the more precise and gradual change of resistance provided by the S-Band design.
  • Our double-wide handle features on several of our products. The APT double-wide handle offers versatile connection options with bands, flywheels, or cabled resistance. The extra handle width of the APT suspension strap eliminates the uncomfortable arm rub pressing that can be experienced with single-wide handle suspension strap designs.
  • If you want to train with resistance on your feet and have safe high and low anchors like a training rig, wall anchors, or a door to anchor to, the 3.75/96 and the APT suspension strap are great tools to consider. These two tools offer 3-dimensional resistance, scalable body weight, and elastic resistance, with tremendous functional versatility in possible connections to the anchored resistance.
  • A library of exercises and workouts using 3.75/96 Band and APT Suspension Strap is free on the FITBANX app.
  • If you are an athlete, the Prowler Loop and the 1.5/18 S BAND are a tremendous combination to train with. The Prowler is designed for training power and reactive footwork, it is very safe for resisted sprints at the end range and provides bare skin comfort as a belt or harness. It is ideal for training any field or court athlete’s agility, acceleration, and injury prevention.
  • The unique benefit of the 1.5/18 S BAND is it stays in place when worn over the knees and will not slip off the foot if worn around the ankles. This is safer, more precise, and particularly helpful for hip flexors/abductors/glutes.
  • Offering different sizing and resistances of the unique S Band design opens up some effective training possibilities. The S Bands program is a toolbox of specific lengths and strengths to train in 3 dimensions effectively and conveniently.
  • The APT Leg Training Harness is one size fits all, with adjustable anchor points, quick on and off, useful with almost any band, ideal for plyometric leg training fieldside, on the court, in the backyard or garage…anywhere you can jump, squat, and lunge. Convenient effective resisted plyometric leg training is “sport specific” for any field or court athlete.
  • Longer bands provide a longer range of resistance and a more gradual change in resistance.
  • All webbing bands have a uniquely useful fixed-end range at about 2X their resting length. This means even the lightest webbing band can be used at end range as a strap to train with “overcoming” isometric resistance, an effective and safe way to train strength.
  • Our latest addition is the APT 53/72 Mat. There are many versions of training mats with markings to cue foot position and calibrate resistance. This new APT product is a collaboration with Tygermat. This 53″ wide x 6′ long mat has practical markings to serve these needs and most importantly offers the best traction of any mat I have used over the years. It is remarkable how much more resistance you can handle and how competently you move when your ground connection is solid. If you have ever worn cleats it is like that feeling of enhanced traction. Ground forces matter…a lot.

If you’re a trainer the APT education program is accredited with ISSA and The Functional Aging Institute.

You’ll find great information from great trainers and years of useful training posts for a wide range of needs at @anchorpointtraining on Instagram or Anchor Point Training on Facebook.

I know… it’s a lot…just the same there are good reasons for most of these tools to be in most trainers’ toolboxes.

Thanks for checking out APT!

I hope you’ll get started with some of our gear, whatever piece it is, it will likely become one of your favorite tools to train with.
