CUSTOM SOLUTIONS

We don't just create equipment, we create solutions. Since 1980, Sorinex has designed and built custom innovative training solutions of the highest standard. Custom isn’t just picking your logos and colors. To us, custom means a hand-built solution from start to finish. Every situation is unique. Here are just some examples of solutions we have created to resolve specific needs. The possibilities are endless.

Sorinex Cloud™ at UFC

UFC Cloud

The UFC Performance Institute in Shanghai, China had a unique request. Their problem was that they needed a space-saving rig that was suspended from the ceiling, along with the capacity to hold up to 28 fighters at a time. To meet their demand, Sorinex created a 40’ ceiling mounted suspension rig. The length of the rig was requested to be the same size as the logo that was installed underneath. The octagons on either side of the monkey bars also provide multiple attachment points for endless training solutions. Instead of having a permanent rig bolted to the floor that minimized training space, Sorinex effectively doubled the UFCPI’s training footprint by bringing forth the world’s first ever rig suspension system.

Northwestern University PR Bell

Northwestern University PR Bell

Northwestern University PR Bell

The coaches at Northwestern wanted a PR bell that stood the test of time- something that previous bells and stands would not. He wanted it to be the focal point of the room and something that nobody else had. To achieve this, we found a bell from 1836 and built something everyone can see from every point of the weight room, since the only time you ring that bell is when you hit a PR.

Northwestern University Pulling Station

Pullara Pulling Station

Northwestern University
Pulling Station

The beauty of the four-way hole design, is that a myriad of products connect and build upon each other. This was the case with the Pullara Pulling Station. Combine custom height Iron Bear storage with lat pulls, and you’ve got the beefiest, and most versatile, pulling station available. Centrally located in the room, this station allows all athletes access to the needed storage and pulling options allocated in their programming. While aesthetically pleasing, bridged to Base Camp Uber Racks, the Pullara Pulling Station is truly a one of a kind solution.

Northwestern University Pillar Wrap

Northwestern University Pillar Wrap

Northwestern University Pillar Wrap

We created the Pillar Wrap in order to increase the usable training space of the room and allow more people to train at the same time. Dualing as a training station and a storage unit for bands and accessories, it allows for the most training options per square foot while freeing up sight lines.

University of South Carolina Armored Rack

University of South Carolina Armored Rack

The Armored rack was a departure from the norm in that we wanted to design something that was not only striking, but safe, efficient, and training-dense. The unique design that allows access from not only the front and back of the rack, but also the sides, allows for a maximum flow of athletes between stations and group work. The shrouded weight stacks can be used unilaterally from both the high and low positions. They can also be utilized with the jammer arms to provide resistance from a multitude of angles and leverage points. The overall design of the rack breaks up the station into 2 fundamental areas where one can coach the core lifts without interfering with any auxiliary lifts that might be going on at the same time.

University of South Carolina
JˣSquat™ Rack

University of South Carolina JˣSquat™ Rack

University of South Carolina
JˣSquat™ Rack

The JˣSquat™ Rack was created with the goal to increase the carry capacity of the facility and get the most training options per square foot. Instead of one person being able to squat per rack, 4 people can squat at once, allowing the coach to have eyes on all of them.

University of Tennessee Jumbotron

Tennessee Jumbotron

University of Tennessee Jumbotron

This one-of-a-kind solution was created to be just that. Tennessee wanted something that no one else had, that could dual function as an educational area for presentations, seminars, videos, product demonstrations, and team education, as well as a training space.

University of Tennessee Rolling
Power Block Cart

University of Tennessee Rolling Power Block Cart

University of Tennessee Rolling
Power Block Cart

The advantage of power blocks is and always have been to have a space saving piece, but with the drawback of being stationary. We were given the request for a storage unit for power blocks that could be moved any given day to add to the functionality of the room. With this solution they didn’t have to program around the room but the room can adapt to their program that day. This cart can hold two power blocks and two handles on top with extra weight storage on bottom.

University of Tennessee Rolling Bumper Cart

University of Tennessee Rolling Bumper Cart

Setting up and breaking down for a team competition day or speed training day takes a decent amount of time, so creating a way to easily store and move bumpers from a storage area to the turf and efficiently load and unload was the goal for this project. Creating an efficient, movable, storage solution that cuts down the set up and break up time allows coaches to spend more time on their athletes.

Virginia Tech Apex Wall

Virginia Tech Apex Rack Wall

Virginia Tech Apex Wall

Usable training space was limited in the Virginia Tech olympic weight room due to the architecture of the room, which left an open wall down the entire length of the space. The sizes of the teams coming in to use this space will vary due to the 19 different sports and 450 student athletes (85% of athletic population) that use this room. We collaborated with Virginia Tech to create a solution that would provide the most training options per square foot. Rather than putting Base Camp™️ racks along it, which wouldn’t be fully utilized because you wouldn’t be able to enter behind them, we lined the wall with Apex™️ Racks, Jammer Arms™️, and Functional Cable Columns. This solution allows a whole team to train simultaneously, and what would have been a bottleneck of unusable space, now increases the versatility and carrying capacity of the whole room.

Mississippi State Custom Iron Bear

Mississippi State Iron Bear Custom Storage

Mississippi State Custom Iron Bear

Coming to and from class creates a situation where many athletes bring with them cleats, hats, gloves, sandals, bags, or a host of other items. This provided the perfect opportunity to integrate the Iron Bear Cubby Station. With the modular nature of the cubbies the staff was given flexibility to select the desired height and length, while also providing a mounting system to integrate custom branded logos for the school. When you take these factors, and add to it the heart-warming tribute staff requested in memory of a student athlete--one who recently lost her battle to cancer--it became an emotional and meaningful part of their strength facility. As the first piece of equipment every athlete passes upon entry, the bulldog is there to greet them with the ever-present reminder: NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE.

49ers Recovery Rack

49ers Recovery Rack

49ers Recovery Rack

If you walk into many weight rooms, you’ll find a few things scattered across the room. What if you could build a storage solution that is equally functional as it is versatile. For the 49ers, a Custom Recovery Rack is what solved that problem. Straps, bands, med balls, soft tissue tools, wraps, etc. all find their home here. Coupled with Trigger Bars and Trigger Wheels, the Recovery Rack is both a storage and mobility station.

St. Louis Cardinals Storage Locker

St. Louis Cardinals Storage Locker

The Cardinals coaches wanted a solution for loose parts to be stored off the ground, such as specialty bars, sleds, and extra bands. As a result, we created an item that fixed all of his current flooring problems while that could also be branded to make a cleaner and safer look for their weight room.

Buffalo Sabres Megabridge

Buffalo Sabres Megabridge

Buffalo Sabres Megabridge

This rack bridge was created as the ultimate grip and arm station to combine functionality and custom branding. It saves space by providing a training station for several athletes to train at the same station in between racks.

Buffalo Sabres Adjustable
Therapy Tables

Buffalo Sabres Adjustable Therapy Tables

Buffalo Sabres Adjustable
Therapy Tables

These custom sdjustable therapy tables were designed to not only match the rest of the schools custom equipment, but also to be the most effiecient and sturdy therapy table there is by using the same American Made 11 Gauge Steel as our racks. The storage compartment under the table saves space and adds convenience. The 3"x3" legs with 1" holes allows you to use Sorinex attachments for rehab movements.

Marquette University Rolling Desk

Marquette University Rolling Desk

The coaching staff at Marquette University had two specific needs when commissioning these workstations: it had to be usable both in their offices and have the ability to move to the weight room. The next issue was how to allow multiple stations to dock into each other for different configurations depending on whether it was a staff meeting or needed to serve a single coach's work station. In the end, what was delivered is a rolling desk with multiple storage options that can be used individually by a staff-member or in conjunction with other desks to create a large modular conference table. Add to those features the ability to pre-wire power strips and brand each station with the school's custom logo, and what you have is a truly unique industry-first solution.

Holy Family High School
Rack Bridge Storage

Holy Family High School Rack Bridge Storage

Holy Family High School
Rack Bridge Storage

With cable stacks integrated into the rack, the room at Holy Family High School was lacking in some storage space. The space that usually stored things within the rack was now occupied, so what do you do with the utility seats, half spotter bars, bands, bumpers and lots more? When racks are against the wall, the space along the wall goes largely unused, which posed a great storage option for this room. With vertical bumper storage, utility pins for bands, chains, vests, and belts, bars for roller pads and safety bars, this solution was the perfect marriage between the high bridge and low bridge, with storage in between.

Abilene Christian University
Integrated Storage Unit

Abilene Christian University Integrated Storage Unit

Abilene Christian University
Integrated Storage Unit

Instead of lining up cable columns and lat pulls, what if we maximized the space between them? That's the question the staff posed to us, and working together, we developed integrated storage trays and horizontal bars for bands, vests, jump ropes, belts, straps, kettlebells, CMBs, soft tissue tools, and so much more. By linking the pieces together, no only did we create a strong and stable wall of power, but a storage solution that maximizes space in the room.
