Want to know the best sports training equipment for 2020?
In this article we have included our top eight favourite pieces of sports training equipment.
Whilst writing our recent articles on the best sports autobiographies for leadership and the different methods of training sports coaches use. We began to reflect on the different sports training equipment we have used over the years and learnt which is the best to use.
Below are our favourite pieces of sports equipment to train with. These have been selected for a number of different reasons. Whether you are looking for your own personal sports training equipment or are a sports coach and use this equipment every day, this is the post for you.
These are one of our favourite pieces for sports training equipment. Having used dumbbells for years, I was excited when these became available as you can change the weight with ease and they are very comfortable to use.
There is no need to sit around fiddling with changing the weights as the Bowflex Adjustable weights enable you to quickly change the weight without any fuss. Another benefit is that they have a very comfortable handle and are easy to store. Check Price on Amazon here.
For those of you who currently or are planning to work on your speed and agility. This is the set for you. The A11N Speed and Agility set also provides you with good quality sports equipment as well as quantity.
The set is also great for sports coaches who regularly use hurdles and parachutes for their training sessions. The pack also provides you with a resistance bungee with Harness as well as a Pull up Power Band. Check Price on Amazon Here.
Our downloadable sports planning template has been hugely popular. Sports coaches should have a training programme which is documented and simple to use. The Kwik Goal Training Session Planner is effective and useful for coaches to record their training sessions as well as evaluate their progress.

Our Faviourite Sports Training Equipment
This home gym is truly superb! With over 70 different exercises for you to choose from (including with a squat bar) whilst also being compact. As well as this, Bowflex also give you the chance to upgrade the resistance even more if you feel the standard weights are too light.
The normal weight set is 95KG/210lbs so it will cater for a wide range of exercises. One real advantage of the Bowflex Xtreme 2SE is that you do not need to change the cable pulley system when moving from one exercise to the next. Saving time and energy.
The only downside we can find it that it does need assembling when it arrives. Well worth it though once it is set up! Check Price on Amazon Here.
