We’ve teamed up with the one and only Cecilie, who uses our 6D Sliders in her martial arts training.
“My name is Cecilie and I work as a Thai boxing and mindset coach. I have been in the sport for five years and was taught by some of Thailand’s best trainers in the world.
I use 6D SLIDING as part of my training and coaching in Thai boxing. Thai boxing is a very demanding sport when it comes to a strong core, rotational power, balance and mobility.
Incorporating 6D SLIDING help me take these aspects of the sport to new dimensions with sport-specific exercises. I also use them to coach my clients, especially in improving balance and mobility. I use 6D SLIDING because of the high quality of the product, which ensures the exercises can be performed correctly and safely. Especially the balance exercises require a high-quality slider to ensure the safety of the client.”

6D SLIDING & Muay Thai
6D SLIDING is a type of functional training that uses specialized slide pads (the 6D Sliders) to create controlled movement, which can be a highly effective training tool for Muay Thai athletes. By performing exercises such as lunges, squats, and lateral slides with the 6D Sliders, athletes can improve their strength, balance, and agility, critical components of Muay Thai performance.
Specifically, 6D SLIDING can help Muay Thai athletes develop more explosive power in their strikes and kicks and improve their footwork and movement in the ring. The unstable surface created by the 6D Sliders forces athletes to engage their core muscles and work on their balance, which can translate to better stability and control during fights.
Additionally, 6D SLIDING can be used to target specific areas of the body, such as the hips and glutes, which are key muscles involved in Muay Thai techniques. By incorporating slide training into their regular training regimen, Muay Thai athletes can improve their overall athleticism and performance in the ring.
Muay Thai is a martial art from Thailand that combines punches, kicks, knee strikes, elbow strikes, and clinching and grappling techniques. It is known for its power, speed, and aggression and is often referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” due to the eight points of contact used in its techniques. Muay Thai has gained popularity around the world as a sport and a form of fitness training and is also commonly used in mixed martial arts competitions.

Of all the racquet sports badminton is the fastest, involving flying foot, lightning reflexes, terrific body balance, excellent reach, quick recovery time and immense stamina to dominate.
Elite badminton players are required to have a high level of skill. Though, to be a successful badminton player you also need to possess a variety of fitness capabilities such as; Aerobic fitness, reflex, flexibility, speed, balance, reaction time, agility, power and strength. All these fitness components can be developed with systemised assessment and training with 6-Directions. There are no rest intervals between prolonged rallies. This meaning a player needs to be incredibly fit to withstand the physical strain, otherwise he is liable to lose long rallies due to fatigue and injuries.
Due to the low weight of the racquets and the low inertia of the shuttlecock, badminton players gain an advantage from an increased level of strength endurance and speed strength. With the help of 6D SLIDING from 6-directions, a badminton player can develop both strength endurance and speed strength by using a variety of sliding exercises. 6D SLIDING can be used in combination with other strength-training tools such as Dumbbells, barbells and kettlebells, as well as rubber resistance power bands. Before any 6D SLIDING training programme, a proper warm-up with stretching is recommended as it will help expand the range of movements and increase the core muscle temperature. Post-workout stretches will improve the muscle recovery and prepare the player for the next session.

Badminton involves the use of several muscles groups depending on the movement performed by the players. Badminton requires a lot of lunging movements. With the various 6D SLIDING lunge exercises, you will engage several muscles from hamstring to gluteus maximus or butt muscles. The adductors and abductors, respectively, are also heavily used, especially when doing lunges in multiple directions and angles. It also includes loads of twisting and reaching movements which place a significant demand on your core muscles, waist and lower back. Smashing the shuttlecock uses the muscles of the chest, back and shoulder, and the degree of use solely depends on the shot being played.
– Casper Wiklund, Head Coach, Lyngby Badminton Club.
As strength training is one of the fitness components that need to be addressed in your programme, you should perform compound 6D SLIDING exercises with multi-angle and jointed range for making it skill and functionally specific. Perform exercises for both anterior and posterior compartment is recommended for better effectiveness and to reduce the risk of injuries due to overuse.

The 6-Directions concept can be tailormade to fit almost any kind of fitness studio. Read here how Gitte Salling, the founder and CEO of the danish fitness chain Energii, uses the 6-Directions sliders in a great way:
“The 6-Directions sliding concept is a perfect, fun, and safe tool for use at Energii’s Heat It Up® classes. In 2017 we had our own private label sliders made. Besides using the Energii sliders in our classes we are selling them as a part of our “Summer Kit” – a tote bag including a bath towel, two Energii sliders with 60 inspirational training videos utilizing the 6-Directions sliders.
We recommend our members to bring their “Summer Kit” and sliders on their holidays! The sliders are an easy way to stay fit, since they can be used everywhere. There are so many different exercises and you can easily get a full body workout only by using the sliders. Personally, I always bring my sliders when I am traveling.”
