Byron Jones shattered the Broad Jump World Record

For someone who wasn't even supposed to do much physical activity at the NFL Combine, Byron's jump is pretty remarkable. Coming off an injury, Byron only trained at EXOS in Pensacola for a few weeks leading up to the combine. However, no one expected that the VertiMax Raptor would be able to springboard Byron's performance into record-breaking status

Mounts to Almost Any Surface

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.

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.

    The Vertimax Raptor EX is a workout extraordinaire. What I love most about this equipment is that it address so many aspects of the athlete development. I have noticed increases in my son’s explosiveness as well as his vertical leap. Now we have increased workouts from once a week to three times per week.

    I ordered a Vertimax EX last year. This has been one of the best training tools I have purchased. I’m a sprint coach for youth and high school athletes. The 1/4 resistance is perfect for overspeed training and resistance training for my age group, making use of the Vertimax EX throughout all track season long. The over 40 yards of resistance is perfect in assisting in the improvement of drive phase strength and technique. All the athletes love it. The only problem is not having more than one!!!

    We bought the Vertimax Raptor Ex to work on speed training between 20 and 40 yards. We already had the Vertimax EX which is used for vertical jump training and off platform speed training up to 20 yards and had great success with it. The Raptor Ex has fit the bill for our 20 to 40 yard speed training segment perfectly.

    I have been totally happy with our Raptor – it has far exceeded our expectations. We use it in various areas for hockey training.

    The Raptor has been an invaluable training tool. There are a number of reasons why I love this training device.
    There has been a noticeable difference in players who have been using this tool. Players have become explosive and more agile within 5 yards.
    Another great feature is how portable it is. Quick set up and quick break down is always a plus. The durability of the device is another great positive. The number of exercises and activities is endless.
    The raptor was the best investment I have made for training my players.

    The Vertimax Raptor EX is the next best thing to taking PED’s. At Next Level Youth Training in Maryland we have 3 vertimax platforms the Raptor and now the Raptor EX. No matter the sport all of our youth athletes experience almost immediate results utilizing the Raptor EX. We love the vertimax equipment and highly recommend the use of it for all athletes at every level.

    My athletes have been using the VertiMax system now for 8 months and have seen growth in their lateral quickness and explosion. The VertiMax has become the center piece of my gym and has created growth at our facility over the past few months.

    Currently our High School Volleyball program utilizes 3 VertiMax machines and one Raptor for our jump and speed training. The results we receive have helped place our program at the top within our State each year.

    In addition to the training, we also utilize the machines in a practice setting to further challenge our players to become stronger and faster on a daily basis.

    I would highly recommend both the VertiMax and Raptor machines to any Volleyball Coach who wants to take their program to the next level.

    Thank you for the speedy service. Working with VertiMax was very easy to do and very helpful. In a world of instant gratification we often forget about just calling a place and talking to a human instead of a machine. I was pleased to push the first button on the phone and speak with someone right away to fulfill my VertiMax order. Brian was very helpful with getting exactly what I needed and we talked about training kids and why I use the VertiMax. Very personable.

    I purchased the V8 also the Raptor for my strength and conditioning program last year. This is an amazing product. My athletes have worked religiously on it and increased their vertical and shaved time off their 40 yard dash as well. Highly recommended products!! http://www.jcultimatetraining.com

    My name is Loran Storts and I am the owner of IronWorks Athletics located in Urbandale, IA. My gym has many different types of equipment including two VertiMax machines and one Raptor. Of all the equipment that I utilize with my clients I have found that the VertiMax/Raptor are the two most effective tools for building better athletes. I am blessed to work with gifted athletes that play almost all sports, their accomplishments include state champions to professional athletes. Each of my clients develop a love/hate relationship with the VertiMax/Raptor….they love the results, love the creativity of the machines but sometimes the workouts leave them lying on the floor in a pool of their own sweat.

    We have been using the VertiMax system for several years. It is especially useful in our jump training protocol for our volleyball and basketball teams. We have also used it with football, utilizing the thigh straps in particular, with the running backs and linebackers. We have three V4 platforms that have held up well with basic maintenance and we will continue to use them as part of our comprehensive strength program.

    The VertiMax has been great for our players. We have certainly seen the improvement in their speed and explosiveness. We hope to continue to develop our Men’s and women’s teams with this great machine!

    Brian was very helpful in helping us figure out what parts we needed for our Vertimax. Once we figured out what parts we needed, he helped us get our order placed very quickly.
    Very helpful.

    We bought our first vertimax in 2013 and 5 years later we have 3 V8 systems and 2 Raptors. They have been a key part in developing our youth athletes. I would recommend Vertimax on a 5 star level to any serious athlete wanting to excel.
