University of Florida wide receiver, Michael Wehrell developed the Vertimax after realizing that an optimal training system for explosive leg power didn’t exist. In 1988, the first commercial prototype was sold to UCLA’s athletic department and the rest is history. Since then, Vertimax has made a huge impact on sports performance training. The unique, light-load, high-speed training systems have been adopted by some of the best athletes, trainers and sports teams from around the world.
Why Vertimax is the leading product in sports performance training
Unlike any other training equipment, Vertimax products are specifically designed to maximize athletic potential by focusing on three key components: speed, explosive power and vertical jump.
Why it works:
- Smooth and constant resistance
VertiMax technology changes the way elastic bands work by completely eliminating the potential for radical increases in resistance felt any time you stretch a conventional elastic band.
- Train across long distances with multiple drills
Vertimax drastically increases the training range, giving athletes the ability to load resistance bands for distance of over 40 yards. This means athletes can complete more consecutive uninterrupted reps for any given mobility drill.
- Ability to load at high speeds
VertiMax resistance allows athletes to achieve the highest resisted training velocities possible during training drills. And the faster you can train with a load, the greater your high-speed strength gains or power outputs will be. If you’re trying to improve your top end running, or throwing speed for example, the Vertimax gives you the competitive advantage you need to reach your full potential.
- Maintain better balance for safer and more effective training movements
VertiMax band technology allows any athlete, patient or gym member to maintain far more stability and balance during exercise and training programs. Because Vertimax provides continual and smooth resistance, users aren’t forced to stabilize themselves against inconsistent exercise resistance, as is the case with conventional elastics.
