VertiMax is the world’s leading athletic training device to maximise speed, vertical jump and overall athletic performance from youth to Professional levels.


    VertiMax is a leading innovative sports performance and fitness training system designed to enhance human performance based in Florida. The company was founded in 1998 by Mike Wehrell, who is still CEO of the company.

    The patented technology on which VertiMax products are based dramatically improves critical athletic performance parameters including explosive power, speed, and the vertical jump and is used in wide range of sports including: Football, American Football, Rugby, Basketball, Tennis and Athletics


    VertiMax band technology allows any user to maintain far more stability and balance during exercise and training programmes. Because VertiMax provides continual and smooth resistance, users aren’t forced to stabilise themselves against inconsistent exercise resistance, as is the case with conventional elastics.

    In 2017 VertiMax launched a new portable Raptor system; which can be attached to racks, fences, portable mounting devices, etc. The Raptor allows coaches to apply consistent horizontal loads to every movement to improve efficiency strength, endurance and agility conditioning.
