Weight rooms need surfaces that are just as tough as the athletes who use them. Mondo’s 70 years of expertise goes into its rubber weight room flooring so they stand up to the most demanding use.

Engineered to withstand the weight and abuse of sport equipment, Mondo’s MondoArmor, Sport Impact and Ramflex weight room floorings are ideal for strength and conditioning areas, fitness centers and weight rooms, offering enhanced resiliency from the dropping of weights, heavy machinery, abuse from strength and conditioning activities, scratches, scuffs and even sweat.

Rapid Performance is a product of Country Ovens, LTD. in Door County Wisconsin. Door County is the peninsula that hangs off of the state into Lake Michigan and is part of the Niagara Escarpment. Our warm days and cool nights, sandy shallow soil and being surrounded by water makes the perfect climate for growing the world famous Montmorency Tart Cherries.

Rapid Red is 100% all natural Montmorency Tart Cherry Juice (not from concentrate). Montmorency Tart Cherries contain anti-oxidants that assist in the relief of muscle inflammation, pain and fatigue. Anti-oxidants counteract the enzymes that are responsible for these muscle irritations and allows athletes to recover faster. Known as the “New Super Fruit”, Tart Cherries provide significant levels of Beta-Carotene (19 times more than blueberries and strawberries), potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron. They are also fat free and gluten free.

Rapid Whey is simple! Take the muscle recovery benefits of Rapid Red and combine it with the power of pure Whey Protein Isolate. With 12 grams of Whey Protein Isolate, Rapid Whey is an all natural recovery drink that was developed to speed recovery. Whey Protein Isolate contains high levels of Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA). 9 of the 22 Branch Chain Amino Acids can only be obtained through food sources.
