SKLZ, the leader in innovative training products, launches the Agility Trainer Pro, alongside 6 additional training products for general fitness, performance training, soccer, basketball, and golf. With its expert team of athletes and innovative thinkers, SKLZ continues to redefine how training is done for the most rigorous and demanding sports.

Inspired by the unconventional movement patterns that occur in the world of sport, the Agility Trainer Pro was developed in collaboration with Zoid Fitness, EXOS, and NFL Player Jason Verret who all weighed in on the need for curvilinear movement training for athletes.

The Agility Trainer Pro was designed with a unique trapezoid design to build footwork, agility, quickness and speed in game-like patterns. It is the only product on the market that allows athletes to recreate the curvilinear and broken patterns during training that take place in the game. With this tool, soccer players, basketball players, and other athletes looking to improve their speed, agility and quickness will be able to do so easier than ever before.

"There was an absolute need to evolve from the traditional ladder training and create something that was the ultimate expression of game-like scenarios," said Michael Cummings, Project Manager for the Agility Trainer Pro.

Every aspect of a new SKLZ product is designed with the utmost precision and technicality to ensure athletes can continue to train at the highest level. In addition, the Agility Trainer Pro is durable and built to use on any surface, including grass, tracks and courts. "We worked with EXOS and professional athletes to understand the demands of their sports," said Jim Caccavo, CEO of SKLZ. "We know games are not played in a straight line. The Agility Trainer Pro allows athletes and coaches to customize their training for specific sport needs."

In addition to the Agility Trainer Pro, SKLZ is debuting 6 new products for spring sports. These products include:

   * Star-Kick Elite and Kickback for soccer to allow players to improve their touch, passing, and shooting virtually anywhere.
   * D-Man Pro for basketball, a defensive mannequin with adjustable arms and legs to mimic a real basketball defender.
   * Court Slidez for fitness and performance training; to put your body weight to work to activate your core for low-impact, high-results training (safe on hardwood, tile, ceramic and other smooth surfaces).
   * Dual Net and Putt Gate for golf are designed for players of all levels to improve their game off the tee and on the green.
