The Al Fong Spotting Block System is a group of lightweight, compatible, versatile blocks that are useful in all levels of gymnastics training.  For years,  Al Fong has produced championship level athletes using techniques and equipment developed over a long and illustrious career. These blocks have been a staple in his gymnastics program and are soon to be indispensable in yours!

Al first developed the blocks to create a “channel bar” station – above the ground.  Gymnasts can safely do skill progressions early on for handstands, giants and release moves.  Coaches love to use them as Spotting Blocks for bar skills.  A special firm foam is used on the bottom to create a more stable environment which coaches REALLY appreciate for safety reasons.

And, bars is just the beginning!  Each block has a 4” white line on the top for training beam skills, including mounts and dismounts.  The rigid sides make for the ideal conditioning, plyometric or flexibility stations.  Turn them on their edges or on end to create dynamic obstacle courses for a great cardio workout!

Each block is made of firm yet lightweight foam that is covered in easy to clean vinyl.  They are super lightweight with carrying handles for ease in moving from station to station.  Each block has strategically placed velcro allowing them to be securely stacked on top of each other, side by side, or end to end.  There are endless configurations and uses for the Al Fong Blocks!

SPECIFICATIONS:  Each Al Fong Spotting Block Stack includes the following (1) 3’ X 3’x 8’ Block (1) 3’ X 1’ x 8’ Plank (2) 3’ X 1’ x 4’ Planks.   Save thousands by opting to buy the easy-to-assemble system.

The Blocks and Planks are made up of 2 different types of foam. The top has 4″ of EVA Crosslink Foam with a Solid Polystyrene Core. There is no EVA Crosslink Foam on the bottom, to help with increased stability.

What is the difference between the easy-to-assemble and pre-assembled options?
The easy-to-assemble option is where we ship you the foam and the covers in two separate shipments. Then, once both shipments arrive, you and your team will assemble the blocks on site. This option saves you a considerable amount of labor and shipping costs. Assembly is easy- simply lay the covers flat, then place the foam inside and zip up. The time this will take depends on how many blocks you have. Plan on 30-45 minutes for a one stack system and about 60-75 minutes for the two stack system.
If you order the pre-assembled option, the blocks will arrive at your facility fully assembled and ready to go without the hassle. This option will cost more due to shipping foam into the warehouse, labor involved with assembly and re-packing each block.
