Recommended best-in-class physical therapy and fitness products.

OPTP Original Norsk Mobilization Wedge

This is a must have for any manual therapists. I’ve found this to be the best wedge for thoracic mobilizations.

foam-roller-cropped

AmazonBasics High-Density Foam Roller

This foam roller has the best value I’ve seen. It is super durable and has the firmness needed for patients to self-mobilize the thoracic spine.

kettle-bell-cropped

AmazonBasics Cast Iron Kettle Bell

You cannot beat the price of these kettlebells. They are not pretty, but they get the job done.

exercise-ball-cropped

Trideer Exercise Ball

Trideer has incredible durability for the price.

airdyne-bike-cropped

Schwinn Airdyne Bike

When it comes to calories burned in a given unit of time, you cannot beat these bikes. I have all of my athletes warm-up on our Airdynes prior to each session.

sandbag-cropped

Garage Fit Sandbag

Sandbags are a must-have when working with tactical athletes. I’ve found this brand to be an excellent value. Remember, the sand is NOT included! You can pick up some play sand for dirt cheap.

MiR Weighted Vest

MiR Weighted Vest

I personally use a MiR weighted vest for my ruck and Spartan training. These things are incredibly durable and come in multiple different weights (20-60 lbs).

Sled

First Place Drive Sled II

Best sled out there for overall work-capacity training for all athletes.

Cervical Traction

Branfit Cervical Traction Collar

If your patients benefit from manual cervical traction, then this device is fantastic for your patients to perform self-traction.

Bowflex Dumbbells

Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Dumbbells

These things are pricey, but I’m convinced these are the best adjustable weights on the market. They are adjustable from 5 lbs to 52.5 lbs.
