Hockey Training with the Vertimax

I’m exceptionally fortunate to have access to a wide variety of training equipment at Endeavor. Our facility is basically like training facility playground. With few exceptions, anything that resides in the Perform Better catalog that I think will allow us to get better results with our athletes, we have. One piece of equipment that I didn’t have much experience with before coming to Endeavor is the Vertimax platform.

Because ice hockey is primarily a horizontal-based sport, my initial thought was that I wouldn’t have much utility for the two Vertimax platforms that Endeavor was equipped with. I was wrong. We use the Vertimax a lot with our hockey players. I put together a short video on how we integrate the Vertimax into our hockey training programs for the Vertimax company.
