The Speed Mechanics Training Facility lies on the traditional lands of the W’Sanec (Saanich) and Lekwungen (Songhees) First Nations. Their ancestors and families have lived here for thousands of years, and now with grateful hearts, we acknowledge this and consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to train, learn, and play in a state-of-the-art facility where athletes of all cultures are welcomed.
3,600 SQUARE FOOT TRAINING TURF
Our large scale artificial turf area at the Speed Mechanics facility is perfect for sprinting and agility training, as well as sport-specific activities and drills, all on a surface that will feel natural to our athletes.
Our facility is home to an arsenal of new Sorinex equipment, much of it exclusive to Speed Mechanics within the Greater Victoria region. Our Sorinex gear includes:
The kPulley is a ‘flywheel exercise device’. It allows for high-intensity exercises with high force to stimulate muscle growth and increase muscle activation. The resistance is variable and unlimited, which means there is no upper limit, providing a higher training efficiency overall.
Featuring customized 3" steel components, unlimited configurations, horizontal safety straps, utility seats for box squats and step-ups within the rack, single leg pads for an array of exercise options, and quality construction as the number one priority, our lineup of these heavy-duty racks is versatile and purpose-built.
This 2-in-1 designed machine accommodates resistance on the weight stack. With 16 adjustable variations on the thigh and shin pads to accommodate every size and build of athlete, this machine provides the greatest number of possible training options per square foot.
This innovative training solution replaces big leverage pieces with more versatility in movement. Bilateral, unilateral, dynamic, variable, isometric, standing, seated, press, row, squat, pull...the configurations have no limits.
ADAPTIVE NETTED TUNNELS
Our turf area has adaptive drop-down netted tunnels to quickly convert the space into a contained practice area. These 45′ long by 14′ wide multi-sport zones are great for multiple disciplines:
SPORTS SCIENCE ZONE
Our next gen equipment doesn’t stop with gear, treadmills, and training racks. Our Sports Science corner of the facility is where we focus on the metrics, assessment, and qualitative touchpoints that make our athletes perform better.
Hawkin Dynamics’ Wireless Force Platform is a highly accurate motion analysis system that aids performance assessment and rehabilitation. The product operates as a set of two platforms, left and right. Together they accurately detect load and via Wi‐Fi Direct display clear live action data immediately on an android app, allowing the user to complete tests in a matter of seconds.
For almost two decades the GymAware PowerTool has delivered precision metrics for coaching staff, researchers, Pro Teams, and elite athletes. Considered the gold standard tool and used in research around the world. The first Linear Position Transducer to offer X-axis correction, it is the tool of choice for those to whom the 1% matters.
