Strive is the only fitness clinic in the area that has VERT equipment. And it's absolutely without question the fastest, safest and most efficient form of exercise available today.

What is VERT?

VERT stands for Velocity Enhanced Resistance Training. It is a high-tech system of computer controlled exercise equipment that analyzes the velocity, change in velocity, position, applied force and resistance 16,000 times per second throughout the entire range of motion.

VERT eliminates inertia associated with weights and allows for high-speed training of the type II fast twitch muscle fibers. Now athletes can train at the same speeds that they perform.

Not only does VERT increase the height of the vertical jump, but it gets the player to maximum height faster. Two players can jump the same height but one player reaches the height faster (he/she has reached his/her peak velocity faster) and he/she will be the first to get the tip-off or rebound.

VERT...

  • sports-specific programs that are computer generated and can be geared for any fitness level and age group.
  • machines can be programmed to provide resistance in all of the following modes separately or in any combination for: Iso-kinetic, Isometric, Isotonic, Variable Velocity and Variable Resistance.
  • "bidirectional" exercise allows training of two or more opposing muscle groups within the same repetition. Examples: Arm curl - Biceps up triceps down.
  • users do 20 times more foot pounds of work than conventional weight training in a fraction of the time. More results in less time.
  • double concentric contractions in the same repetition all but eliminate post exercise muscle soreness. No load on the joints or stretching and tearing of the muscle.
  • records, stores, compares and provides analysis for every workout. The computer keeps track of improvement and displays results in the form of charts and graphs.

VERT eliminates inertia, there is maximum muscle fiber recruitment through the entire range of motion.

VERT trains the nervous system to contract muscles fast. The faster the muscles contract, the faster the limb moves. The faster the limb moves, the faster a person can run, the higher a person can jump, harder they can hit, the farther they can throw, the better they can functionally perform.

Smarter training = greater results!
