    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.

    Love the raptor for our athletes! Easily handles several athletes in a short amount of time! Used heavily during our track season for block work!

    I intitially gave the Raptor a 4 due to the price of the fence. But the results my clients have gained changes my rating to a 5!! I love this equipment and will be in the market for a second one soon!

    At Core Fitness Miami we use the Vertimax Raptor for field work days with our DBs, RBs and WRs. It’s an excellent tool that adds versatility and depth to any training program.

    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.

    Using the VertiMax Raptor has helped my athletes with there development on performance at the highest level. The ability to take it to multiple locations makes it a useful tool for athletes at different locations.

    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.

    I am a parent of 8 year old the Raptor has helped out with his speed and endurance I love it

    I started using the VertiMax Raptor this summer to help my 9 year old son gain foot speed after breaking his ankle in the spring. Physical therapy wasn’t working fast enough to help him get ready for the upcoming soccer season. In just a few weeks not only did I see drastic improvement in foot speed, but his ability to kick the ball with both feet had improved. He went from a good defender to our leader in assist with his strong passing. I can’t wait to see what the next off season brings.

    I have 2 Raptors that are the centerpiece of my facility. My athlete age range is 7 to 56, and have all benefitted from the versatility of the Raptor. For my more elite high school and college athletes, we’re able to perform our speed and agility curriculum and as a bonus to them add in the Raptor to further drive home the importance of optimal ground force. The Raptor provides a stimulus for the athlete to put words into action. For my elementary and middle school aged athletes, the youth specific Raptor give me an advantage to further promote game play and reward time, simultaneously increasing the performance and athleticism of my young athletes! Last, the ease of use speaks for itself. I’ve developed a grid system on my wall with it that allows me to place the unit in multiple angles. This allows baseball and lacrosse players to focus on the gradual forces created by the Raptor on their swing rotation. For questions or pictures of how I placed my unit without a fence, please visit http://www.TATtraining.com for my contact information.

    Upon receiving the Raptor, I really liked that it was ready to go out of the box. Setting up the Raptor is a breeze and takes just a few minutes. When putting it to use, I like how versatile it is with what angles it can be set up in. This especially useful depending on what work out and muscle group you are working on. My 9 year old son (now 10) used the Raptor about three times a week along with his other training days during track season summer 2016. I noticed his explosiveness off the line improved a lot after just a few weeks of using the raptor. I truly believe the raptor was instrumental in my son’s overall 5th place finish in the 2016 AAU Junior Olympics held in Houston. I would highly recommend the VertiMax raptor to anyone looking to improve explosiveness and overall speed in any sport.

    We’ve been using the Dual Band Raptor with our Cross Country and Track and Field team to supplement their workouts during the season. In season weight room workouts are great but having access to a small weight room being used by other sports can be a challenge at times. Having a portable load bearing system that can be utilized anywhere on campus makes it easier on the coaching staff. We’re at a point in our program where we have to consider purchasing another Raptor to allow more athletes at a time working out rather than rotating between the sprinters, distance, jumpers and throwers.

    We purchased our first VertiMax V6 model way back in 2004 and VertiMax Training has been a staple of our programming ever since. Today we own two V 6 Platforms and 3 Raptors and have gone as far as to offer specialty classes based around these units as part of our weekly curriculum.

    I have found them to be both diverse ( having used them on the Field for Catching drills Coaching in the AFL and on the court for Passing, Setting and Blocking drills with National Championship KIVA Volleyball players) and a must have for reinforcing and strengthening basic Jumping and Speed Mechanics!

  23. 5 out of 5


    For a year now I’ve used the VertiMax Raptor on all my athletes. Results have been tremendous for all athletes including my NFL, MLB, NBA, and Collegiate athletes who have all utilize this product in their programs. This is great prep and rehabilitation accessory exercises. Great multi directional agility drills. Excellent for linear and lateral plyometric exercises that are involved in all aspects of sprint mechanics. This is a must use/have in every strength coach tool box. I’ve been very blessed to work with the top athletes around the world, which means they need the top equipment to get them prepared, maintain, enhance, and recover all at once.

    I’ve only had my Vertimax Raptor for a year now and the athletes love it. They’ve seen immediate results. From being up north I can only get good use out of it during the spring & summer. But I am excited to introduce new training techniques this year to our athletes that’s trying to get faster & stronger.

    At Mooresville VertiMax, we have 4 VertiMax V8 machines and 1 VertiMax Raptor. All of the VertiMax products have been instrumental is us building high-level athletes. The vertical jump training with the V8 has enabled us to create superior Volleyball, Basketball, and Football players. Also, the speed and resistance training off the Raptor and the V8 has enabled us to produce incredible results for our Baseball, Softball and Soccer athletes!! We couldn’t do what we do and would not have the great results we do without VertiMax!!!

    I would like to thank Jay and Brian for all of their help and follow up when I contact Vertimax for any products, warranty items, and information. Great company with a great product that continues to go above and beyond time after time. I am sure that we will be getting more of their products in the near future.
