Our team invested in the GPS technology so we could effectively monitor the intensity and volume of our training sessions throughout the year. The technology allows us to optimize performance-training outcomes for both individuals and the team for the in-season, mid-season and off-season recovery period.Read more
For the demands of all field-based sports outdoors, SPT has been fantastic in providing us with simple parameters that are easily communicated to coaches and players alike.
Our school purchased SPT GPS devices to use within our Physical Education/Health Department. Our students and staff have thoroughly enjoyed using 21st century technology to gain feedback and information, similar to that of professional athletes. Students are motivated to compare their data from previous performances, against other students, and to that of what a professional athlete may achieve.Read more
The devices have become a key component of our senior practical lessons, where students have applied results to make links to theory topics and content such as energy systems, fitness (training methods), concepts of physical activity, methods of assessing physical activity, movement analysis and feedback, as well as many others.
Being able to use SPT’s technology has enabled the Physiotherapists at Optimus Health to work closely with our Sports Science Team and help to reduce soft tissue injuries over the 2016/17 seasonRead more
We have managed to use the GPS data to give feedback to coaches about important data and load variables, including acute-chronic ratios and flagging players when their loads are not in a ‘sweet spot’.
We started working with SPT before the start of our 2016/17 football season. We have now been working with them for a full year and during this time, I can confirm that they have been nothing short of brilliant in supporting us at the Academy.
I decided to use SPT when I was preparing to return from a lower back injury. I had been trying to get back [into training] for a month or two after I was cleared, but every time I would begin to push myself, I would find that my back would begin to hurt. I realized that I was creating the problems by increasing my workload too soon. I began researching companies and products that would allow me to see the results of my training sessions so that I could use the data to slowly progress back to full fitness.Read more
After reading and educating myself on the GPS device that SPT provides, I decided that the features offered at the price point was unmatched. It is extremely user-friendly and a great way to analyze data on a day-to-day basis. I continue to use the device throughout the off-season to monitor the workload and intensity of each training session so I can better take care of my body and prepare properly for the upcoming season.
St John’s Old Collegians FC have been using the SPT GPS units to gather training and match data on metres run per minute and high intensity running. This has allowed us to evaluate the quality of our training in relation to the intensities our players experience during games and adjust and improve how we train.Read more
We also track total load during the week to manage our yearly macro cycle, enabling players to peak for important games and minimise significant increases in load, which may lead to a greater risk of injuries. Our players have really enjoyed seeing and using their data as motivation to improve.
