VersaClimber PVP Portable VersaPulley Flywheel Training Machine
The Portable VersaPulley is an inertial flywheel-training device relied upon by many of the world’s top teams, universities, therapists, and trainers to prepare their athletes for the highest levels of competition. What differentiates the VersaPulley from its competitors is the ability to perform exercises in both a horizontal and vertical application. This allows its users to train at any load, at any speed, and in any plane within an infinite amount of exercise variation.
In most team sports, players are required to repeatedly perform short, explosive, efforts such as accelerations and decelerations during changes of direction 2 . The capacity to dissipate the forces during abrupt deceleration (breaking ability) is critical to injury prevention, while the ability to decelerate and reaccelerate in a short period of time (reactive strength) is paramount to enhanced performance.
Who is using VersaPulley?
World-class athletes at Mark Verstegen’s Athletes’ Performance Training Centers in Tempe, AZ and Carson, CA. Verstegen is Director of Performance for the NFL Players’ Association. He and his staff work with top athletes competing at the highest levels in football, basketball, baseball, soccer, hockey, and many other sports. Noted speaker and regular NSCA columnist Juan Carlos Santana uses the VersaPulley with his athletes and clients at the Institute of Human Performance in Boca Raton, FL. Additionally, other top professionals such as Mark Roozen in Fort Worth, TX are using the VersaPulley.
What is Smart Coach?
Smart Coach Sensor (+$195) - A connector that allows VersaPulley to plug into Smart Coach products. Upgrading VersaPulley with IPU display, Smart Coach Sensor is included.
SmartCoach™ systems are composed of: a power meter, a data acquisition and analysis software and, for flywheel and VersaPulley™ devices only.
During exercise, the power meter acquires data from the training device and feeds it into the software. The analysis software is the same for the entire range of products.
The Portable VP’s light weight, compact design, and ease of mobility is ideal for on the field or on the court training by simply securing with adjustable straps or field stakes; It can also be permanently secured to walls, squat racks or floors in any sport training environment. While the Portable VP weighs just 70 lbs, its patented technology can produce up to 400 lbs. of explosive force resistance.
The VersaPulley is designed to create those moments of eccentric overload, allowing the athlete to be exposed to these stresses in a non-impact, concentrically driven and eccentrically overloaded environment. VersaPulley accomplishes this using our patented MV2 technology – resistance-generating rotating inertial flywheel.
Our device picks up where traditional gravity-based weights, chains, bands, air-powered machines stop. While all of these methods are important to the training, rehabilitation, and reconditioning of athletes, these methods offer mostly constant concentric and eccentric load in exercises emphasizing vertical actions. They rarely encompass horizontal/lateral actions offering eccentric overload 1 – which is exactly why the VersaPulley was developed.
