The first smart device to help you improve both the form and performance of all barbell lifts.
The FORM Collar was born in the gym and tested in the lab as a collaboration between athletes and coaches of all experience levels and disciplines.
There is still room in our first production run but quantities are limited. Order now to make sure you get one from the first batch. Training for next season starts today.
"If you train athletes, this is a no brainer. The FORM Collar has transformed the way we look at the power and olympic lifts by empowering the athlete's performance. Up until now, an athlete had to rely on an experienced strength and conditioning coach to pick apart their form and performance of a lift. With the FORM Collar, you can now see that information instantly in the palm of your hand to vastly improve results."
"Technology for the win. The new FORM Lifting barbell collar tracks bar acceleration, pull power, & lots of other cool data. This thing is sick!"
"Get stronger, more explosive lifts by using one of these bad boys. I benefit tremendously from FORM Lifting."
"The Form Lifting collar is exactly what the fitness industry has been missing. I find myself focusing even more on my timing, positioning, and speed while moving the barbell. It's like carrying a portable coach and personal virtual video game all in one. Coaches and athletes should look at this collar as an industry standard."
"I train using John Welbourn's Field Strong program. Now that I have a reliable, objective way to measure bar speed, I can train the way I am supposed to. It's like having John watch my lifts, but without the cussing and off-color jokes."
"The best technology is one that you don't even realize is there. The FORM collar is working behind the scenes to provide you with powerful information. The is the hardware device I have been waiting for!"
The electronics in the FORM Collar will have a 1 year warranty. We have partnered with Lock-Jaw to insure that the hardware part of the collar is just as tough as the electronics. Their latest collars are very durable and should stand up a lot of abuse. Lock-Jaw has drop test equipment for torturing collars; we will be testing our units extensively before releasing them to the world. We would love to know what sort of collars you like, post to the comments with your favorites!
We have a camera system set up in our office that tracks barbells very accurately. We have used that to help calibrate and test the FORM Collar throughout development. We also have a Tendo unit that we use, check out this video showing that.
The FORM Collar has an extra sensor that other devices don't have (patent pending). We use a barometric altimeter to get data about the height of the barbell. When we combine that data with the data we get from the accelerometers we are able to get a much more accurate speed measurement than similar devices. We will never be as accurate as the string-based devices like the Tendo, but we are very close.
Absolutely! Whenever we visit a gym we almost always end up with multiple users competing on the same bar. Very early on we made it trivial to switch between lifters in the app. You can compete with friends, but still keep all the data separate for each lifter.
