"I was introduced to Vertimax through the Blue Jays. Vertimax has helped me in all aspects of my game. After a few workouts, I started to notice improvement in both my leg and arm power.
This has increased my vertical, which has also helped my defense in the outfield. Meanwhile, the adjustable resistance bands I use during my hitting drills have added power to my swing. I can't wait to get my own unit!!"
Colby Rasmus, Toronto Blue Jays center fielder
"I coached Tyler Rahmatulla, a shortstop on the Mater Dei High School Baseball Team, who led the 16 & under Junior Olympic team in home runs. He participated in our six-week VertiMax training program. In the beginning we were only trying to lower his 60 yard dash time and increase his lateral movement, and that DID happen. But we noticed another significant improvement! Tyler pitches on the team, and he had increased his fast ball from approximately 85 to 90 mph! VertiMax training, when done right and adhered to by a hard working athlete, produces all around outstanding results! Thank you Vertimax!"
John Elliot, Elite Coach & Trainer
"The VertiMax training device is an integral part of our strength and conditioning program at the University of Florida. We believe that this training device incorporated into our program has helped our team make remarkable improvements to our explosiveness and power"
Urban Meyer, Head Football Coach Ohio State University 2011, Head Football Coach Univ. of Florida, 2005-2010 & 2006 National Champions.
"VertiMax is the best training system incorporating upper body loading into an already highly effective explosion training device. Incorporating the upper body to improve the lift aspect of vertical jump training is a giant breakthrough for all skill levels. I can say without hesitation, it is a device of great importance in my or any training program."
Garrett Giemont, Pittsburgh Steelers Head Strength Coach, 2008 Super Bowl Champions
"VertiMax has taken our training programs to the next level. I have used it at Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, and now at UCF. It allows the most physical athletes to make further gains in speed and performance. It is second to none when it comes to increasing reactive power and is more effective than any other plyometric training we've used."
Ed Ellis, Georgia Tech's Director of Player Development, works directly with the football team while overseeing the strength and conditioning efforts for Tech's 17-sport athletics program.
"Vertimax gets our players more explosive. Steelers CB Ike Taylor has been using Vertimax since the 7th grade. And he'll be using VertiMax through the rest of his career. Everything we do here, is to improve explosive power... and that's what VertiMax excels at."
Tom Shaw, Pro NFL trainer at Perfromance Enhancement, Tampa FL
"Our team has definitely seen and felt the benefits of working with the VertiMax. Our schedule this year is very competitive. We need an edge for our players; Vertimax gives us that edge. During the testing of the vertical jump, my strength coach advised me that my players kept cheering VERTIMAX every time a teammate hit a higher max jump. My players and coaching staff are sold on VertiMax's effectiveness!"
Rick Pitino - Head Basketball Coach, University of Louisville
"After implementing VertiMax in our off-season strength and conditioning program, our basketball team's cumulative vertical jump capability in shear inches increased by a magnitude that I have not seen in my 26 year coaching career. The VertiMax has made every player on my team a more dominate athlete providing me a more competitive team to work with. After seeing what VertiMax has done for my program in three short months, I can't imagine any coach not making VertiMax an integral part of their team's strength and conditioning program."
Bruce Weber - Head Coach, Kansas State University Men's Basketball
"I have been fortunate to work with elite level basketball players for last 10 years and the Vertimax is a major staple in my training program. It is an invaluable tool for safely and progressively improving a player's explosiveness. VertiMax can easily be used to train your whole team to become a faster, stronger, Championship Team"
Alan Stein - owner of Stronger Team and the Head Strength & Conditioning coach for the nationally renowned, Nike Elite DeMatha Catholic High School boys basketball program
"Yes! I have checked out the videos. You have done a great job with those. Mike Overstreet told me he spoke to you and he said you recommended to watch those 8 videos of you doing the workshop in Tennessee. He said you would know more than 99% of trainers just by studying those videos. I agree. Those were really informative. I also went to Vimeo and watched most all of the 60 videos. I appreciate all the information you take the time to put out. I do basketball training, leagues and camps in Jacksonville and have just started to implement your Vertimax V-8 training into my program. Michael Overstreet purchased it for us. What a great product! I'm excited to see the results on the court in my clients and teams. Thanks again for all you do!"

"Our program continues to strive for ways to incorporate cutting-edge methods to improve our athletes' performances. The VertiMax trainer has been instrumental in helping us take our athletic strength and explosive power development to the next level. VertiMax has also helped the improvements in our girl's strength and speed attributes to very effectively transfer to the field where it counts. The VertiMax is one training system that I will continue to use to help us to achieve our training goals"
Anson Dorrance - head coach women's soccer at the University of North Carolina
"The VertiMax is a one of a kind system providing valuable training elements unique to the sport of volleyball. The ability to load the legs and arms simultaneously while jump training develops superior jumping and speed performance while allowing players to work on blocking & attack mechanics. Our players' stability & strength in the air is better than ever and in just 8 weeks we have had dramatic improvements in our ability to elevate & penetrate the net on block jumps."

"VertiMax has given our coaches the means to take vertical jump and speed performance to the next level across all our sports programs. VertiMax has given us the opportunity to dynamically train a number of kids on explosive movements both on and off platform in a short amount of time. We've had impressive results that helped our coaches and athletes buy into the training program immediately."
Coach Gary Joseph - Head Football Coach Katy High School, Katy, TX, 2007- 2008 Texas State Champions
"The VertiMax is an incredibly diverse piece of hockey training equipment, as it allows you to overload vertical, horizontal, and diagonal movement patterns. We use it consistently throughout the off-season in our dryland training to improve lower body power and reinforce proper movement patterns in our hockey players."
"The VertiMax is the ultimate dryland functional training system for hockey players who want to increase their explosive power and gain a competitive edge with respect to mobility and stamina on the ice. VertiMax can be configured to perform hundreds of hockey drills implementing multiple training techniques that uniquely improve a player's game on many levels. Masterfully overcoming the problems associated with traditional resistance band equipment that run opposite to the length tension relationship of muscular force production. VertiMax provides results my athletes can't get with other dryland training systems. I highly endorse the VertiMax for hockey training and recommend it for any hockey player who wants to take their game to the next level"
Spero Mantzavrakos, Head Strength Coach New York Islanders 2004 President & Head Strength Coach Next Level Training Corp.
"This is the 6th year that we have incorporated the VertiMax into the Gym Dogs' training program. It is an intense workout that really pushes our girls to be more explosive and better conditioned. VertiMax helped us win our 15th SEC Championship and our 8th NCAA National Championship. We look forward to using the VertiMax for many seasons to come "
Suzanne Yoculan - University of Georgia Gymnastics Head Coach
"I purchased the Vertimax a couple of months ago back in April. I had it about a week before I actually started training my 16 year old daughter on it (she's a basketball player). After just 2 weeks of training, I noticed a significant difference in her lateral movement and quickness at practice. Defensively she was able to stay in front of and stop players that would normally blow by her, and she was blocking more shots than normal. After a different work out with one of her basketball trainers, she told me she felt "younger ", especially while doing a tough lane slide drill; I find that a funny statement considering she's only 16. Her high school coach even noticed how much quicker her first step is at a summer scrimmage. My daughter actually comes to me now and asks if she can do the Vertimax, and wants to step it up to more than 3 times a week (I said no, isn't that right?).
To top it off, last week she attended a couple of Division 1 college summer elite camps and received a full scholarship offer from one school, a tentative offer from another, and she's not even a Junior yet. Chances are she was going to get offers anyway, but just knowing she's going to have her college paid for is reassuring and justification for making the investment in the Vertimax. Not to mention I just want to see her reach her maximum potential and compete at the highest level."
