Arm mechanics are a critical part of an athlete’s speed and strength in their sport. Without good form, it doesn’t matter how fast you are. There are other arm training devices on the market, but they require a visual element in order to work. This means that a coach or parent needs to observe the athlete to make sure that the elbows are actually driving back on the athlete because an athlete wearing a device can not run and look to make sure their arms are at the approximate angle or that elbows are driving far enough into the backspace to make a real difference in form. The user becomes dependent upon another person to tell them what their arms are doing, thus defeating the purpose of an arm training device.
KlickSpeed is different. It gives auditory feedback, a “CLICK”, that tells the athlete they are using the device correctly. This is a huge benefit to the athlete and the teams they are on- usually track and field teams are very large, and most are typically short on coaches to observe every single athlete. Once KlickSpeed is properly adjusted to the athlete, the user simply runs and can then hear their own progress as they go. It’s a simple, fun solution to training arms for running!
