The FitKit Resistance Band System was developed by SportCord in the early 1980's by physical therapist Topper Hagerman and athletic trainer John Atkins as a means to keep the US Olympic Ski Team in shape while traveling. It proved to be an effective tool for maintaining strength and rehabilitating athletic injuries and is now used by athletes and physical trainers worldwide.
When designing the FitLot Fitness Park System we incorporated over 40 attachment sites for users to connect a FitKit SportCord too and add dozens of additional movement options to their exercises.
FitKit SportCords are Tougher to Last Longer
SportCord uses a bungee-type resistance cord that's constructed from multiple strands of rubber and covered by a tightly-woven, high-strength nylon jacket. This protective jacket does four very important things:
It extends the life of the rubber core by shielding it from oxygen and UV light.
It prevents any rubber from contacting the user. (Important for latex-sensitive individuals.)
It prevents sudden breakage of the cord. (The jacket will support the cord's full load even if all of the core's rubber strands break.)
It signals when the cord needs to be replaced. (Cuts and other localized damage to the cord will cause the jacket to fray long before the cord is weakened.)
