Mission statement

To be the global leader in innovative, intuitive, user-centered high performance fitness training and monitoring tools

High performance sport is about WINNING. It’s about being the best; taking the checkered flag, the podium, the medal, the trophy. To be the best requires not only a well structured plan, but attention to detail; minimising the influence of ‘chance’ and increasing the certainty of achieving goals.

The combination of innovative training with novel performance equipment and optimal training facilities and a team of highly motivated high performance support staff is the key to creating winning performance.

ESP’s principles are based on knowledge, innovation, experience and teamwork in elite sport which we believe are essential to the foundation upon which ESP will help you create your winning sporting environment.

ESP products are proudly manufactured in the United Kingdom and wherever possible materials are sourced in the UK. All products carry a quality guarantee expected of British engineered products.

Case Studies

Some of our recent installations


Innovation is at the core of all ESP products

Extensive research and development programmes conducted at the Sports Technology Institute at Loughborough University has led to the creation of the unrivalled TOTALPOWER™ signature range of high performance training Racks, Lifting Platforms and Training Boxes.

Research centred around structure and design has allowed ESP to create functional, high-performance, durable and aesthetically attractive equipment. This is illustrated by the comprehensive material testing used to improve rigidity and to reduce the rebound of dropped weights, noise reduction and anti-slip surface of the TOTALPOWER™  Lifting Platforms.

Developing Smart People to Develop Smart Products

ESP believes in providing opportunities to develop young talented individuals with a passion for the industry. ESP has a strong student mentorship program providing Apprenticeships, Placements and Internships in the areas of design, manufacture, administration, marketing and sales.
