Athletes Lab LLC has purchased Rapsodo Technology for its 33,000 square foot performance center. One of the reasons Athletes Lab obtained Rapsodo is for athletes performance tracking over time on their VertiMax sports performance training equipment. Athletes Lab will use Rapsodo for athlete performance tracking and athlete development over a period of time by measuring such attributes as fastball velocity, spin rate, axis and location for pitchers as well as exit velocity, launch angle and swing plane. They can use this data to focus on specific training to enhance athletic performance.
Athletes Lab Performance Center is equipped with three VertiMax machines, a multi-purpose turf field, 11 cages, a pitching area, three pitching machines, and a pro/collegiate weight room.
The Rapsodo purchase is the latest addition to the organization’s commitment to bring elite technology, resources, tools, equipment and coaches to meet the needs of area athletes and maximize their experience as well as development.
“We continue to provide the best resources and latest technology for our athletes and coaches,” said chief executive officer Grant Rembert. “Our goal is to provide a professional facility with professional coaches that have all the tools to maximize the development of our athletes. We want no excuses when it comes to development and athletic enhancement of all athletes in the area."
