Testimonials

Customers of Hitechplates have a lot of great things to say about our plates. The following is a list of just a select few of our customers.

The plates are wonderful! I haven't had a chance to snap pictures. The kids are lifting though and they love the new equipment. We also received trainer barbells from Jim Cawley. The volleyball girls love the combo of your plates and his barbells.

I am in Stuttgart Germany. I work for the Defense Information Systems Agency by day. I am also a Crossfit Instructor in my spare time. I Run free classes twice a week. These disks will be used by everyone from 10 year old kids to 64 year old athletes. I have been collecting equipment over the past couple of years and these disks will standardize the hight of the Bar for all of the Olympic lifts. 

Thanks again for supporting the men and women serving overseas. 

 

Dan Minton

Crossfit Instructor

You make great products.  The two sets I bought last year are holding up great and we use them everyday!

 

Matt York

Strength and Conditioning Coach

Thanks again. Hi-Tech Plates are making a positive difference for American Weightlifters. We have been training with the Hi-Tech Plates for a week and the improvement in Technique is both noticeable and across the entire team.

These plates are "A MUST" for any team or coach wishing to improve their athletes performance.

 

Michael Conroy

USA Weightlifting International Coach

On average we use those 5 and 10lb plates, one to two times a week and have done so since last April when we began the program.  I went through the stack of 10's that we had and tried to pick out the worst looking or most used looking one we had and couldn't fine one!  They all look like they've hardly been used - very cool stuff! After seeing how useful they worked at home, I ordered them for the base program I teach. We have many sets of the 5 and 10 pound ones. The technique plates are used every time we lift! 

 

Brent Ragsdale

CNI Health Fitness Specialist

No problems with them at all.
Taking the abuse without issues including being stored in an outdoor area exposed to the conditions.
I don't hesitate to recommend them.

 

Andrew Cattermole

Crossfit Coach

The plates are same size as olympic plates but come in lighter weights for technique purposes....can't break them either....love them...good for young lifters also so they can work with a bar that is same distance from the ground...like there would be if there were actual plates on bar.

Sit right.  Fit snug.  Last a lifetime.  Hitechplates make the joy of weightlifting something athletes of any age or ability can experience.

Iron Tribe Fitness grew from a garage gym hobby, to over 200 members in six months. And now with 250 active clients, we are opening our second location with the goal of reaching 250 members in 90 days

flat. That means our equipment must be able to handle the demands of hundreds of workouts daily. That's where Hitech plates come in. They are strong, dependable, and near indestructible. 

 

Luan Nguyen

Owner, IronTribe Fitness

The 2 sets of 5 kilo plates are working out great. Only wish that 3.75s were ours instead of CrossFit Oahu's. 

Makes it a lot easier for our kids to workout now. Can load these plates up a lot more than I could with the air plates from Uesaka. Will definately pick up some more plates in the future. The 2.5 kilo plates work great for our Workouts. I had another 11 y/o boy do his first cleans today with the 2.5 plates and 7.5 bar. It makes is so much easier for me to teach these athletes with the tech plates.

 

Donny Crowder

Head Sports Performance Coach

The plates look and feel great. As soon as our budget allows we'll be getting more. 

 

Daniel Scott Hartmann

Scenic City Weightlifting

I am a big believer that your products are THE BEST plates in the market for their durability, size, cost.

Plates are working GREAT! Athletes love them, coaches love them! 

 

Michael Cook

University of Alberta Sports Manager

Over my 40 years as an athlete and coach my quest for simple effective training equipment has never stopped. I have always been amazed why the leading manufacturers Olympic weight equipment continue to focus on outfitting only 5% of the athletic population and competitive Olympic lifters. Developing through Olympic lifts and progressions of these lifts should be an ingredient of every training regimen of any athlete, in any sport, at any age and in any gym or garage. Finding a lightweight plate that can be worked dynamically and dropped from over head on various 65% to Max snatches, cleans push presses and jerks that has hard working durability could not be found until I took a chance with the 10 lb Hitechplate. After manufacturing my own several times and trying all others on the market I have ended my search. The Hitechplate is the answer. That is why we have asked to co-brand this great product. Can't imagine a gym without them.

 

Christopher Wells

Fitness Trainer

Yes I did get my plates and my clients and I love them. No more stacking the bar on annoying blocks to achieve approximate height. Now we can have actual height and teach without frustration. 

 

Elliott Bell

Owner | Bell Athletic Prep

The plates are working great…..good implements to work technique. Our Olympic Style team back in February won the National Junior Championship in Rochester, Minnesota also….we used the plates during training.

 

Joey Lippo

Owner | FPC Weightlifting

Hitechplates are the ultimate training and workout tool, whether you are an aspiring Olympic lifter or a weekend Crossfitter, these plates are essential.  Completely indestructible, they can also be loaded with iron weights, to maintain proper bar height for lifting with less than 135lbs.  I used a pair during a recent deployment to Iraq, and they were invaluable for training O-lifts and Crossfit workouts with the limited resources there.  Every gym needs a set or two!

 

Daniel Ettlich

CDR, United States Navy

HiTech technique plates are without question the best lightweight weightlifting plates on the market, and the ONLY ones we use and recommend. Made of an indestructible plastic composite, these plates can be dropped without fear of cracking or breaking. Their width and precise fit on the barbell also prevents the aggravating wobbling typical of technique plates. Don't waste your time, money or patience with any other technique plate. (Pictured is the 3.75 kg plate).

 

Greg Everett

Owner, Catalyst Athletics

As a team member of the Australian Special Forces and a strength and conditioning coach, it is vital that we train with the right equipment to maintain optimal levels of readiness.

Hi-Tech plates have proven to meet our demands as a versatile and durable plate for technique and development work to ensure our members can learn and train complex movements without risk of injury. We have used these plates both overseas on operations and in our barracks gym.

I could not recommend a better plate for light strength work or developing strength in inexperienced trainees.

These are made from fully recycled materals and are all full size (450mm/ 17.75"), but unlike other training plates available on the market these are tough, they are stable on the bar and are designed to be dropped on a lifting platform. 

We have decided that as Hi Tech plates are so good, and 5Kg bumpers so poor, we will not import any more 5Kg/ 10lbs bumper plates.

 

Brian 

CrossFit Central London

Let me just say those plates are great, we have been trying our best to beat them up.  You have created an excellent product and I am very excited to get them in our store.  I just put a post up on the CrossFit site about how they can be used and their dependability… I am impressed with your innovation and entrepreneurial venture.  I look forward to doing business with you in the future. 

 

Bill Henniger

Owner | Rogue Fitness

I happen to think your product is one of the most innovative out there. I love the fact that they are indestructible, 100% recycled and made in the USA.

All things that we love to promote around here. One of the best things is you have not been caught up in the constant price increases of iron and steel.

 

J.P. Brice

IronCompany Sales

The hitechplates allow kids training at the gym to learn the technique and be able to drop the weights unlike the other training plates that have to get replaced because they break. We call the hitechplates the indestructible plates because they do not bend or break no matter how somebody drops them. These plates help with the younger lifters psyche because they are the same size as the heavier weights and they make for an easier transition to the more weights without being afraid.

 

Derrick Johnson

Olympic Weightlifter

All I can say is that high-tech plates are the only plates that you will ever need.  We don't like to baby our plates here at Crossfit Oahu  So we have broken or damaged all other training plates its we have owned in the past. High-tech plates have stood up to everything that we have thrown at them. It couldn't be any happier. When you buy them you won't be disappointed.

 

Bryant Powers

Founder, CrossFit Oahu

Hitechplates are clutch when teaching beginners of any age how to do the Olympic Lifts from the floor.  Every PE class at Lincoln High SF uses them to begin with. Durable, sturdy and smooth looking!

 

Kevin Doherty

Abe Lincoln High Coach and Trainer

I really like having the plates, especially for my weaker clients.  A few of my female clients were intimidated, as they thought the plates were regular 45 lb plates. They were shocked when I handed them the plates!
