Be prepared with the right equipment and achieve the greatest benefits in injury prevention and sports performance!

At ACL Strong, we minimize equipment requirements to keep our program ultra convenient and accessible for everyone, no matter where you are.

For those who have access to additional equipment, we provide instruction on how to use it properly for maximum benefit.

Equipment is listed below with links to order…


Resistance Mini Band (loop)

These bands are used in each training session to apply resistance for warming-up and enhanced strengthening.  Participants will learn valuable strategies for using the mini bands long-term for muscle activation and strengthening.

RECOMMENDED (Choose one):

An unstable surface, such as the BOSU Balance Trainer, will increase the intensity of the exercises, challenge your stabilizing muscles, and help you achieve better results. If you have athletes in the house, or you value an active lifestyle, I recommend one of the options below for lifetime benefit. You don’t need a balance trainer to BEGIN the ACL Strong program, but consider getting one during the course.

Balance Trainer 

We love the dynamic stabilization and versatility of the BOSU Balance Trainer, so we utilize it in some of the exercises. While you are not required to have this item for the ACL Strong program, we recommend it to enhance your experience. Alternatives include a Dyna Disc and Foam Pad, as shown here. You can also grab a pillow to stand on!

OPTIONAL (NOT required):

Bonus Instructions include tutorials for utilizing the following items for improving mobility and flexibility. Again, these are NOT required. If you have access to them, you may use them, but most people do NOT have all of these items. If you wish to purchase additional items for your recovery toolbox, links are provided to purchase from Amazon.

Foam Roller

In a recovery lesson, you will be instructed in proper use of the foam roller for soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, warm-up, and reducing muscle soreness in the legs.

Stretching Strap

Throughout the course, you will learn how to use a stretching strap for improving flexibility in various muscles through the body. This strap travels easily and makes stretching more convenient and easy to do.

Long Resistance Bands

The resistance band cables or ropes are valuable (and may be required) in Ski Patrol STRONG, NEXT LEVEL, Ankle Strength Add-Ons, and the Shoulder Course

The Stick Roller

An option to the foam roller for self myofascial techniques and soft tissue management. For those who travel often or like to keep a roller in their workout bag, the massage stick is a nice option.

Kinesiology Tape

Elastic sports tape that can be applied directly to the skin to potentially help reduce pain and allow improved quality of movement.

Cold Pack

My favorite cold pack that I keep on hand and use with my patients. It molds to the contour of the body for maximum surface area contact. I recommend placing it into a pillowcase before wrapping firmly around the target area.
