The Heavy Trainer product was conceived to assist Tennis, Lacrosse & Cricket players worldwide in their warm up before a match. The product is similar to that of a heavy golf club or bat rings that baseball players use. This is a one piece patent pending design. The goal of this product is to stretch out the muscles used in these sports, build muscle memory, and increase swing speed.
This unique item can improve a tennis player’s game by building both player strength and flexibility.
The 200g Heavy Trainer slips over the grip and attaches to the throat of any tennis racket, so there is no need for any additional equipment. A player trains with the racket he or she is used to swinging. According to Laz Gates, CEO and inventor of the Heavy Trainer, “The goal of this product is to stretch out the muscles, build muscle memory you can’t get in a gym and increase racket speed for bigger serves.”
“Some days you just pick up your racquet and it feels too heavy. Having the Heavy Trainer in your tennis bag and then using it to take shadow swings prior to practice eliminates this feeling and makes you feel like you can generate more racquet speed. You can even hit balls with it! More racquet speed, more power, more confidence in your swings – that’s a good feeling for any player. A fantastic training aid that’s so simple to use , a must for your kit that will last a lifetime.”
