—-Peak Performance offers the latest in fitness technology to bring clients high quality equipment traditionally not found in other fitness centers in fort lauderdale. Below is just a sampling of the equipment found at Peak Performance.
—-Customized Quadruple Cable Crossover System: Custom designed for Peak Performance, it contains 4 completely adjustable cable columns and 4 sets of chinning stations. The steel weight stacks are calibrated to the exact weights, even taking into consideration the loading pins and the mechanical advantage of the pulleys.
—-Pulling Sled: This sled is attached to the athlete around his/her waist as they perform resisted running drills. The sled can be used alone or with the addition of extra weights. Sled work is excellent for developing starting strength as well as increasing an individual�s overall work capacity.
—-Functional Trainer: The Cybex FT 360 is an extremely diversified piece of equipment. The biggest difference between a standard cable crossover system and the FT 360 is the independent action of the arms of the machine. They can be maneuvered in such a variety of positions that the number of exercises that can be performed on it is limitless.
—-Verti-Max Jump Trainer: Used by many collegiate & professional teams for increasing an athlete’s vertical jump as well as first step quickness, the athlete wears a hip harness attached to a series of pulleys and cables.
—-Belt Squat Machine: This machine places the load directly onto the lower extremities without placing any load on the upper back. The athlete wears a belt around his/her hips and the load comes from directly below them and attaches to the belt.
—-Ivanko Competition Bars & Plates: Made of steel and completely encased in a dense rubber, they come in a multitude of colors to help designate the differences in weight. In addition, these Olympic Bumper Plates and bars are calibrated to the exact weight that is denoted.
—-Plyo Boxes: The athlete performs single leg or double leg jumps on, off and over these unique wooden boxes of varying sizes in a predetermined fashion in order to develop power.
—-Reverse Hyperextension Machine: This apparatus allows the user to raise their lower body upward from a hip flexed position. The individual’s torso is stabilized on a pad as the lower body is raised to the same level as their torso.
—-Two Olympic Platforms: Each features a combination of thick rubber flooring flanking a beautiful oak surfacing. These platforms are specially designed for practicing the Olympic Lifts which include the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk.

—-Full Set of Custom Chains & Bands: The Chains and/or Bands are utilized in conjunction with traditional exercises such a bench pressing and squatting. By attaching the chains and/or bands to the bar prior to performing the exercise, one can change the stimulus of the load and therefore the training effect. These tools are designed for use with an advanced trainee.
—-Eccentric Hooks (weight releasers): These hooks are attached to the ends of the Olympic bar. Additional weights are placed on the hooks so that the athlete experiences an additional load in the descent portion (eccentric action) of the movement. Once the hooks touch the ground they release and the athlete accelerates upward (concentric action) with a lighter load.
