The National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) and KILOGEAR CUT, a sports science and premium fitness brand, are excited to announce a three-year partnership. As part of the partnership, KILOGEAR CUT will offer state-of-the-art weighted training gear to field hockey student-athletes and coaches across the country — all NFHCA members will receive a discount on KILOGEAR CUT products and a portion of all sales will go to support the NFHCA’s mission.

“The NFHCA is energized about our partnership with KILOGEAR CUT,” noted Cate Clark, executive director of the NFHCA. “Their gear is designed and tested by sports medicine professionals and used by all levels of athletes to optimize training and performance. As sports science grows and efficiencies in performance optimization continue to evolve, we are excited to partner with this innovative and veteran-owned company.

Founder, Megan Brown, a former field hockey student-athlete at Temple University and her husband and co-founder, Trent Brown, a former military officer for the United States and global business executive worked to identify gaps in the wearable fitness space. Together, they spent years with a global team in design and testing to create KILOGEAR CUT. The weighted gear is doctor-designed and employs rigorous third-party testing to ensure consistent results. The added resistance provided by KILOGEAR CUT requires the body to work harder, giving athletes a competitive advantage in training and on-field conditioning. The weighted training gear requires the body to engage more muscles, resulting in improved core strength and mobility. Using V02 max testing and state-of-the-art monitoring equipment, KILOGEAR continuously measures the following areas: caloric burn, achieving and sustaining peak heart rate, improvements in quality and efficiency in warming up, reducing perceived rate of exertion and measuring EPOCH.  KILOGEAR CUT is also the official weighted training gear of the USA Field Hockey National Teams.

“We are proud to partner with Cate and the NFHCA”, said Trent Brown, chairman and CEO of KILOGEAR CUT.  “As a sports science company and premium fitness brand, we pride ourselves on excellence. We believe the NFHCA represents excellence in coaching and education. We are proud to team up with such a great organization in delivering our amazing gear to the field hockey coaching world.”

“As a former player and senior player, wearing the gear helps me stay in great shape,” said KILOGEAR CUT founder, Megan Brown. “I’m able to get more out of my training in less time. As a coach, the gear is an incredible addition to coaching and condition protocols. This gear allows more time on the field doing drills and learning the game, while conditioning.”
