We have found that VPX Performance Sports athletes experience performance gains within 3 weeks or less. Recommended for ages 7 & up.
Since athletes come in different shapes, sizes, & strength levels, VPX Performance Sports has developed different bungee & waist belt sizing to fit all your needs. At the time of purchase, you will be provided options for different waist belt sizing & bungee
To order proper waist belt sizes, utilize the sizing charts provided (at time of purchase). Additionally, waist belt sizing should be a little bigger than your normal pant waist size because you will be placing the VPX Training Harness waist belt over clothing (T shirts, hoodies, etc) when training. This adds additional bulk that must be compensated for. We recommend adding 2-3" to your normal pant size.
For bungee length sizing & resistance ratings, we recommend to utilize the bungee length sizing charts (provided at time of purchase). Measure your height WITH SHOES ON. Additionally, we recommend that if you are starting out, you should utilize one bungee when training. Work into 2 bungees once your lower half strength has increased. Our specialized resistance bungees need a little "work in" time that usually takes about 1 week. After this period, your bungee should be properly conditioned to your specific strength, height, and power levels - ensuring years of performance gains and maintenance.
If you ordered the wrong size(s), email us and we can change out sizes for you. Shipping and taxes do apply for all size change requests.
The VPX Training Harness is designed to optimize any linear-to-rotational sport specific movement of the lower half. Such sports that require linear-to-rotational movement planes are golf, tennis, baseball (hitters and pitchers), softball (hitters and pitchers), football, hockey, and lacrosse.
VPX Performance Sports provides a fully integrated player development system that includes a wearable training system with data driven programming. We also back it all up with a 100% performance satisfaction guaranty. No one else offers this because their training or products may not work on everyone.
Our VPX Training Harness is MOVEMENT based, rather than mechanical based. The difference between 'movement' and 'mechanic' is that movement is the root cause of any mechanical deficiency. Additionally, the VPX Training Harness is the ONLY training system that kinetically connects your back leg drive to your body. This allows athletes to perform with the VPX Training Harness during any aspect of their training or practice. All other systems utilize an exterior anchor point that does not allow for free, unhindered movement - remaining unconnected from your kinetic chain reaction.
PHASE SPECIFIC TRAINING INNOVATION:
There are 3 phases to your VPX training process - (1) linear drive phase, (2) rotational torque phase, & (3) underload/overload phase. All three phases are required to maximize your training. Linear drive phase will have the main resistance bungee along your back hip. Rotational torque phase will place the main resistance bungee along your front hip. Under/overload phase will repeat "linear drive" and "rotational torque" phases, but require you to do it quicker & stabilize longer.
STRENGTH & CONDITIONING GAINS:
One of the best features of the VPX Training Harness is that it trains MOVEMENT specific strength while you practice. Our clients consistently state their lower half is fatigued after a VPX training session. This is because the resistance contours your positional & sports specific movements - all the while hitting your flexors, stabilizers, & fast twitch muscle fibers. Additionally, your bigger muscle groups are having to apply increased accel-to-decel force that ensures proper movement. All of this combines for not only a great strength workout, but performance gains. We do, however, recommend you strength train on top of using the VPX Training Harness.
SENSORY FEEDBACK & HOW TO UNDERSTAND IT:
The VPX Harness is science and theorem based - not theory based. It connects your heels. Meaning, it forces you to drive with your back heel, and teaches you when and how to implant your front heel - before rotation. This is the #1 movement that determines whether you will optimize ALL the power and velocity within your game. If you feel your back heel being pulled off the ground, you are prematurely rotating your upper half, getting top heavy, or your kinetic chain reaction is not sequenced or in sync. The fix is simple, implant your front heel before hip rotation & you will not feel the bungees "pulling" your back foot off the ground. Refer to our training room & all the videos for more details.
PRACTICE CREATES PERFECTION:
Nationally, users are seeing results within 3 weeks or less (with consistent and proper usage). You have to USE your VPX Training Harness, as there is no "magic fix" to performance. Additionally, motor and movement patterns revert back quickly, so consistent usage is required. This keeps your athletic movement peaked so that old motor patterns do not revert your movements back into deficient performance. We recommend 3-4 days per week for 20min per day to see gains.
When your VPX Training Harness arrives, inspect it for damage. If it is damaged in any manner, contact us at Info@veloprosportsus. You can also contact us via this website under the 'Contact & Policies' tab. Provide your shipping/tracking number and purchase order ID in your email. Mail back your unit and we will send a new unit out to you once we receive your damaged unit. No new product(s) will be mailed out until we receive your old product(s).
Your purchase of a VPX Training Harness comes with a one waist belt, one foot strap, and two specialized resistance bungees. You can order a thigh strap (separately) to concentrate the bungee resistance& contour it along your back leg linear drive force. At the time of purchase, you will be directed to choose a waist belt size and bungee length. Refer to the sizing charts to make your choice (provided at time of purchase).
We have certified instructors all across the world. Email us with your location & sport, & we will get you into contact with your local VPX Performance Sports certified instructor.
To get the marketed performance gains we are seeing nationally, you must utilize your VPX Training Harness 5-6 days per week, for 20min at a time. 3 weeks or less is the time frame from which we are seeing performance increases.
The greatest advantage of the VPX Harness is its universal performance. You can use it with any ANYTHING! Combine it with any other training system you currently utilize to exponentially increase your gains. Additionally, most clients use their VPX Training Harness during medicine ball strength routines and arm care circuits.
Although it is impossible to track injury prevention or risk to such, correlations do exist. Since the VPX Training Harness DIRECTLY trains core support to move quicker & support your upper half, injury risk is reduced & prevention of such is enhanced. Injury during any athletic activity is usually caused by a lack of support. Most popularized weighted baseball programs train your arm to move faster, but ignore the #1 component to velocity - supporting your arm to command newfound velocity gains.
