    Amazing Praduct!!!

    Have been using the machine V8 Large with our High School Team for a year now. It was really noticeable the improvement in our players athletic ability and vertical this past season. Look forward a full off-season of workouts with the machine. Only concern/ issue we have had is the screws on the bottom of the machine seem to work themselves loose pretty easily and the cable lock mechanism seem to wear our quickly.

    I myself have been able to improve my game on the football field as well as train the youth to strive to become better athletes themselves. Great product every athlete should be using to elevate their game.

    I added this to my training facility last year. This was a very great investment. I use the vertimax for multiple things. I mainly use it with my athletes but I also use it when I personal train. This had elevated so many of my athletes overall athleticism. I think all training facilities should have this.

    The Vertimax V8 provides the flexibility to increase explosiveness and power all in the same workout in a short period of time. The uses of the Vertimax V8 are limitless whether it is connecting weight vests or harnesses. It also provides a great base for conditioning activities during the offseason.

    It’s been a great tool to increase speed stability and power for both my daughter who plays GU14 competitive soccer and my 15yr old son who is a eight year stroke/cancer survivor with a large need for physical therapy. It has improved them both in a short time.

    I’ve been using the Vertimax V8 EX Large for almost 2 years now and the results have been EXACTLY what I needed. I own Core Fitness Miami which specializes in NFL Combine Prep. It has helped us develop our young collegiate athletes into explosive professional athletes. The results speak for themselves.

    My name is coach Ernie Ford and last year I ordered the V8EX. When I ordered it I was in a bit of a jam. I was just hired to go to Istanbul Turkey and train several professional clients in basketball and volleyball and Vertimax was able to build and ship my purchase in time for my arrival in Istanbul. Once in Istanbul I used the V8EX and had immediate impact with my training. I was able to work with multiple athletes at one time which helped my efficiency and production in training. I am a firm believer in Vertimax the versatility and options are limitless!!!!

    Awesome product. Package arrived on time with easy to follow instructions. We use it for our basketball and golf teams. Your workouts are limitless.

  11. 5 out of 5


    Excellent product. We use it daily and have seen tremendous results in our jumping and rebounding. We use for all around training including defensive slides and core strength. Highly recommend it for all high school basketball teams.

  12. 5 out of 5


    Great Product!!! Well made. We noticed a big difference in speed and agility after the first 6 to 8 weeks of use.

    We purchased the Vertimax V8 EX to train our family, specifically for volleyball. Given the success we’ve had we now use it for training friends in soccer and lacrosse. We have been using it for about 6 months and have seen significant improvement in vertical jump and speed. The first unexpected surprise of utilizing the machine is how easy it is to use for sports specific training. I often find myself training two athletes for different sports at the same time. The second unexpected surprise is the reduction of wear and tear on the athletes bodies. Due to its design we get more “done” with less wear and tear in a shorter amount of time. This is very important especially dealing with young athletes (12 – 16 years old). We consider the Vertimax our “secrete weapon” and it has exceeded my expectations! Thank You Team Vertimax.

    As an athletic director, I purchased Vertimax specifically for our boys and girls basketball programs. Our main intention was to use it during the offseason for training purposes. We not only use it in the offseason, but also incorporate it to our inseason practices as well. Our coaches are really happy with the Vertimax, and we continually find more and more was to incorporate it into basketball specific drills.

    I am a Track and Field Coach for a team with over 130 kids. We use our Vertimax V8 EX daily. We have tracked our athlete’s performance since they have begun using the Vertimax and their results are far greater than the athlete’s who do not use it. This has been our single best purchase in terms of results. The Vertimax is user friendly and provides the resistance training to really push the limits with our Athletes. We will continue to use the Vertimax for our Athletes.

  16. 5 out of 5


    I train basketball players & athletes that want to get the best performance out of themselves. The Vertimax has helped my players tremendously. They feel the effects of resistance training right away and they improve their vertical jump and explosiveness in a matter of months. It’s great! Company support is top notch too! Thanks!!

  17. 5 out of 5


    We have been using vertimax to train our football players in their off season training, we have not only been able to work on strength but their agility and quickness by using this 3 times a week. In just a short period of time we have watched our players jumping ability and overall foot quickness increase. We definitely look forward to using this in future. Thanks

  18. 5 out of 5


    The Vertimax is a must. I purchased the V8 for my AAU basketball Team to help improve my teams explosiveness, first step quickness, and overall athletic ability. Currently my players get 2 sessions per week as they are in their high school basketball seasons, and we are already seeing improvements. Each player will get 3 sessions weekly when the offseason begins. The Vertimax is a great investment!

    I work for Michael Johnson Performance (the gold medalist) and we have several V-MAX Raptors that we use at our facility. We have used them for a number of sports training programs and have gotten great results from the athletes, we have had parents and coaches tell us about the improvement that they have seen and nothing is more pleasing then to hear things like that, we are currently developing a program to test on what improvements we can get when used with combat sports we feel that we really make something happen. I think the Vertimax is something all training facility’s and should have along with high schools too.

  20. 5 out of 5


    Nothing compares to the Vertimax for increasing overall athleticism. Nothing. I own 2 Vertimax systems and use them everyday for sport specific resistance training with my athletes. I have both the Vertimax V8 EX and V6 Plus. I own Hoops Mechanic basketball training facility in the Nashville area in TN and have seen vertical leap improvements of up to 6 inches and sprint time improvements of as much as 2 full seconds. Some athletes come to my facility simply for Vertimax training alone. I would recommend the Vertimax system to anyone that is serious about taking their game to the highest level or that trains elite athletes.

    I’ve been using the Vertimax V8 for a year now and it has exceeded my expectations.

    In just a short period of time we have watched our athletes jumping ability, speed, explosiveness, core stability and overall quickness increase.

    The first unexpected surprise of utilizing the machine is how easy it is to use for sports specific training. I often find myself training 2-3 athletes for different sports at the same time.

    I’m amaze of the reduction of wear and tear on the athletes bodies and still maximizing major results.

    “Vertimax was our secrete weapon but the secret is out in or community. Every local athlete wants to train on our Vertimax”

    This equipment has elevated all of my athletes overall athleticism.

    A MUST for training young athletes…!
    Many can master the finesse of their sport , the mental mindset to be a team player ….but most eventually fall short because of speed and quickness…..speed is the answer to the next level!
    I have used the V8 Vertimax with step-up boxes, ladders , and hurdles to train a group boys from ages 9&10…..they are now 14&15 ..Combine kids that are very good with the ball and live/sleep soccer with now the fastest/ most explosive players on the the field ….AND…BAMM….WE Have won THREE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS …….2015 U13 Presidents Cup …. 2015 U13 3v3 National Champion…..2016 U14 3v3 National Champion….Going for 4TH …U16 indoor (futsal) Feb 2017 KC……
    The fastest kid at 10 stays the fastest …..gets picked for better teams ….trains / develops at a higher level over time….at the end of day you PEFORM at the level you Train…..this is the BEST training system I have ever come across!

    I have been very pleased with the VertiMax training system! It is helping us take our individual youth training and our AAU teams to the next level. I highly recommend getting some of the sport specific training programs; they give great workouts and the structure needed to see the best results. Not only is the VertiMax a great training system, but the customer service has been exceptional….you don’t see that a lot these days. Thanks Vertimax!!!

    Here at the Strength and Fitness Club in Cranford NJ, we take great pride and enjoyment training our athletes on the VertiMax V8 system. To compete in the field of sports performance training, we need to be on the cutting edge of how we train our athletes. The VertiMax V8 System is an awesome tool to use to improve athletes speed, agility, power and explosive movements. We train all types of athletes on the VertiMax system including the youths, high school athletes, division 1 college athletes, and professional athletes. The athletes love the intense workouts on the VertiMax and they all admit to seeing gains in their speed, power and jumping abilities in just a short-time of using the VertiMax system. I think its imperative for all facilities training athletes to invest in the VertiMax.

  25. 5 out of 5


    The VertiMax is unlike any other piece of equipment in existence because it is unique design to maximize your space and train all key characteristics of the game no matter what sport an athlete plays. The V8 truly unlocks an athletes full potential and makes any workout creative, intense and fun filled. The platform has an ingenious design that has truly made each day incredible for me and my strength and conditioning staff to be creative with each workout we provide for an athlete. The American made craftsmanship put into the VertiMax V8 I’ve have truly seen because of the high work load I put on the machine in my top of the line Strength & Conditioning facility in NY. Our VertiMax V8 in my facility is used at least 8 or 9 hours a day and it is definitely built to last. I will be a returning customer.

    The VertiMax has become a huge part of our off-season training program. The systems works better than we hoped before make the purchase. The support staff has been a great help every time we had a question. I hope we can add a few more in the future.

    My daughter is 5’ 7” tall and played outside hitter in high school. She wanted to play college volleyball as an outside hitter but had to compete with 5’ 10” – 6’ 3” girls trying for the same positions. He volleyball team was not very good and she played Club ball but did not get many looks to start. We then purchased the Vertimax and she was able to add at least 6 inches to her vertical jump and she ended up getting a scholarship to play volleyball as an outside hitter.

    We also train kids of different ages in volleyball and basketball. The Vertimax has become the most important part of our jump training that we do.

  28. 5 out of 5


    I am super excited to get my players on the VertiMax. I have been monitoring their progress thus far and the results are very evident. Our off season training and in season work will be kept challenging and interesting because of the VertiMax!!!

  29. 5 out of 5


    This system truly improves the vertical jump of the athlete, the explosiveness and the overall speed. The unit is quite large and is extremely durable, can take multiple size athletes and will stand the test of high-level training. The VertiMax System is well worth the investment in an athlete or athletes (more cost effective) to improve your athletic performance on the road, bike or water, reduce injury while using the unit and the entire Team. The VertiMax is the most comprehensive athletic resistance training system I have ever used. It will withstand the test of durability and has measurable performance gains while using it.

  30. 5 out of 5


    The VertiMax is a must have if you are serious about your child becoming and elite athlete! Easy set up with a ton of exercises to chose from or modify to your sport. We have witnessed measurable improvement after only three-five workout sessions. My child can not wait to go work out on it and he is 11! Most importantly the company’s representatives are great to work with. Everything that they said will occur has happened like clockwork during the ordering and receiving process.

    At Gym Ratz in Richardson, Texas, we workout between 10-20 players a day. Our clients vary in age from 6-25, from beginners to college players to aspiring pros. The VertiMax is a huge draw to our gym. Our clients can use our VertiMax for just the cost of the workouts. The difference in their jumping ability and speed and agility are evident immediately. The first time user is amazed by how they feel after we take the bands off and have them jump on their own, the smile we get is universal! When we first got ours, I decided to try it out, within 3 weeks I had increased my vertical by 4 inches!

    We are big proponents of the VertiMax and our clients love it!

  32. 5 out of 5


    We have had the VertiMax for 1 year now. We love it because of the resistance it gives our players. They are always working because the bands never get slack in them. We can now do our work out faster and have more players working on different things at the same time. We appreciate everything that the VertiMax offers and would recommend it to any other school.

    This is the most effective tool on the market, not only for vertical training but for all-around explosiveness athletic training! It is beneficial for all athletes but, specifically as it relates to basketball players, the advantage of using the off-platform capabilities is a must for explosive triple threat training. What takes months to achieve in the weight room can be accomplished in a matter of weeks.

    In under about 2-weeks my son went from constantly catching the ball on the front of the rim on failed dunk attempts to head turning, eye-popping, 360-degree and reverse slam dunks. Trust me if I didn’t see it for myself, I wouldn’t believe it either (however, as proof, see the effortless 52-inch box jumps ala’ the opening sequence of HBO series, Ballers, then at only 16-years old). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmyarIPPTEk

    With the time constraints and grueling schedule of being a student/athlete with all-year around gameplay (high school and AAU seasons) the convenience of having a unit at home make a huge difference.

    Vertimax — when you absolutely, positively must get above become explosive and get above the rim accept NO substitutes. It is a competitive world, arm your athlete with the best tools — if you don’t have one get one!!

    The VertiMax is an excellent training tool for our basketball team. We are using it for all ages. Elementary kids to varsity. The boys are seeing results in the short time that we have been using it. They are asking to get on it. It’s exciting to us to see them asking to workout and this is just the beginning. It’s been a pleasure working with y’all and we are looking into buying another next year.

    We’ve been using our Vertimax to train sports teams and individual athletes for the past decade at BucksFit. Ryan Arcidiacono from Villanova’s 2016 National Championship basketball team came to use our Vertimax often. Customer service from Vertimax has been quick and super helpful.

  36. 5 out of 5


    I have wanted to get one for years for our girls program and we do have one of the very old ones (12 years) that we did use.

    The vertimax is always part of our weight sessions during the pre-season. We do a lot jumping with the hand attachements. We do a lot of lateral slides which we could not do with our previous vertimax. We do speed work and a lot of ball handling with the belts on. We do some lateral and forward box stepping.

    It is also out during our practices. We often use it as a station or have kids go to the vertimax when they are not in a drill so that they can focus on their areas of need.

    We can see the results. We are stronger and more explosive. We are more dynamic with and without the ball. One of the most important for things for us is that we are more healthy. The other part I like is that our players enjoy it. They get into using it and trying to better themselves. 28-0 and first state championship in school history.

    The only drawbacks we have is that we could probably use 1-2 more and with our current set-up it is not the easiest to store and move.

  37. 5 out of 5


    I have now used VertiMax for over 6 years for my basketball Academy! Athletes and parents love the results! From vertical to speed and first step explosiveness, this machine does it all! I have purchased my 2nd vertimax last year and got the EX! That extend rage is awesome! Vertimax can take any normal training and redefine what it is to train!! What you can do with a vertimax is limitless!

    I want to thank Brian for your great customer service, and making sure all my request were taken care of. I look forward to doing business with you in the future.
