With the Raptor, a whole new dimension in speed and strength training opens up for individual and team training from youth to Pro levels that simply isn’t possible with conventional elastic bands. In less than two minutes a Raptor unit can be attached to a chain link fence, wall or portable support to transform any space into a world class speed and strength training center.

Raptor has a training range of over 30 yards

The Raptors will allow coaches to apply consistent horizontal loads to every movement in open field or in agility drills to improve the efficiency strength, endurance and agility conditioning. This new technology opens up a complete new training dimension for both high end performance enhancement and rehab applications to expedite a player's return to game day competition.

RB Lateral High Step & Go Drill > Raptor | Demo

This drill being performed by NFL players at Michael Johnson’s Performance Center in McKinney Texas, utilizes the new 17 lb. portable VertiMax Raptor unit to apply a uniform elastic resistance to a running back throughout a lateral high step and acceleration drill.
Developing muscles in the legs responsible for lateral movement is critical for running backs because often the holes created by the offensive line don’t occur where they are supposed to. That’s where quick lateral movement is key to helping a back change direction along the line and get to a gap that will allow them to get down field and gain yardage. Don’t forget to stress learning to accelerate quickly out of a lateral or change of direction move! This is critical as the degree of acceleration achieved in the first few steps out of an elusive change of direction move is where the greatest opportunity to create separation from pursuing opponents can be achieved. This Raptor drill is perfect for developing both change of direction abilities and acceleration after the change of direction. The VertiMax Raptor units can apply an elastic resistance to an athlete over a 45 yard range. Thus for this specific drill having the ball carrier after crossing the last hurdle turn their hips and accelerate down field as quickly as possible for as much as 30 yards is recommended.

    Easy to set up and the clients love it. Very portable and provides a good exercise training session. The only negative is that the fence Genetic Potential sells is as expensive as an actual Raptor.

    The Raptor has a been a great training tool for my 12 year old grandson’s baseball workouts. I wish that this device had been available when I was a volleyball and track coach for building speed and power.

    The Raptor is great for agility training (hurdles, cones, speed ladder) and for change of direction movements (backpedal to forward sprint). Extremely easy to set up and transport with flexibility to train where you play.

    We currently have 4 Vertimax V8 machines and 1 Vertimax Raptor at Mooresville Vertimax. These machines have been instrumental in helping us create incredible athletes. Vertimax allows us to train using “sports specific” movements that apply to all the sports we help with. Those include basketball, volleyball, soccer, baseball & softball, football, lacrosse and competitive dance. The results using the vertimax machines speak for themselves. Our athletes are becoming more explosive, stronger, and we have seen vertical jump increases averaging 1.5 to 2 inches per month. We are proud to use the vertimax equipment as it separates us from other gyms and training facilities and it has enabled us to help send athletes to the next level… D1, D2, D3 and NAIA College athletes. Vertimax machines are not what we use the most, it is all we use!!

    I bought the Vertimax V8 initially and my kids (13 & 10) loved it. The training is safe (and fun for them). The results are nearly immediate. In one off season they each shaved 8 & 10 seconds off their 400m times. My youngest son finished his AAU track campaign within the top 15 in the country. The product line is far superior to any other regiment therefore, I purchased the raptor. The raptor, due to its portability, has further revolutionized our training. Virtually any place anytime has become our training facility. Whether it’s football, tennis, baseball, or basketball I would strongly suggest any parent serious about their young athlete developing their potential to purchase any one of the vertimax products. Buy it, use it, and enjoy their instant success

    I have used the Raptor and the Vertimax V8 for a multitude of training aspects for years. I use it for speed as well as agility and one of the many things I love about the system is it’s versatility it provides as well as the isolation of key muscle groups. It has been a primary training staple in my speed program for years……

    I have both the Vertimax V8 and the Raptor. My athletes love these training tools. They have had amazing growth over the year and are continuing to show awesome accomplishments in their sports. I have one athlete that increased his standing broad jump by 24 inches in a years time and another one that increased his vertical jump by 10 inches in 5 months. These tools have been great for strength, power, explosion, first step quickness and speed.

    I am a high school football coach and we bought two of the VertiMax Raptors for our off-season strength and conditioning program. We wanted to focus on increasing our speed and agility as a team. We have had them for about a month now and our kids love working on them. The ways to utilize the machines are limitless. We have incorporated lots of position specific drills into our training with the units. Our guys have really bought in to using the Raptors to gain speed and explosiveness. The customer service has been outstanding as well, I would highly recommend VertiMax.
