We have found that Velopro athletes experience performance gains within 3 weeks or less. Ages 9 and up recommended.
Since athletes come in different shapes, sizes, and strength levels, VeloPRO Sports has developed different bungees and waist belts to fit all needs. At the time of purchase, you will be provided options for different waist belt sizing and bungee lengths. 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 VL 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.
VeloPRO Sports provides a fully integrated player development system that includes a wearable training system with data driven programming.
2. We 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.
3. Our Velocity LOAD 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.
3. The Velocity LOAD Harness is the ONLY training system that kinetically connects your back leg drive to your body. This allows athletes to perform with the VL 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.
There are 3 phases to your VeloPRO training process - (1) linear drive phase, (2) rotational torque phase, (3) underload and overload phase. All three phases are required to maximize your training. Linear drive phase will have the main resistance along your back hip. Rotational torque phase will place the main resistance along your front hip. Under/overload phase will repeat "linear drive" and "rotational torque" phases, but require you to do it quicker and stabilize longer.
One of the best features of the VL Harness is that it trains MOVEMENT specific strength while you practice. Our clients consistently state their lower half is fatigued after a VeloPRO training session. This is because the resistance contours your position and sports specific movements - all the while training strength of flexors, stabilizers, and fast twitch muscle fibers. Additionally, your bigger muscle groups are having to apply more accel to decel force to ensure 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 VL Harness.
When your VL Harness arrives, inspect it for damage. If it is damaged in any manner, contact VeloPRO Baseball at [email protected] Provide your shipping/tracking number and purchase order ID in your email. Mail back your unit and VeloPRO Baseball will send a new unit out to you once we receive your damaged unit.
Your purchase of a Velocity LOAD Harness comes with a waist belt, foot strap, and two bungees. You can order a thigh strap (separately) to concentrate the bungee power.
We have certified instructors all across the world. Email us with your location and sport, and we will get you into contact with your local Velopro Sports certified instructor.
The VL 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 hips. The fix is simple, implant your front heel before hip rotation and you will not feel the bungees "pulling" your back foot off the ground. Refer to our help center and all the videos for more details.
To get the marketed performance gains we are seeing nationally, you must utilize your VL 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 VL 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 VL Harness during medicine ball strength routines and arm care circuits.
Nationally, Velopro users are seeing results within 3 weeks or less (with consistent and proper usage). You have to USE your VL 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.
Although it is impossible to track injury prevention or risk to such, correlations do exist. Since the VL Harness DIRECTLY trains core support to move quicker and keep your upper half erect, injury risk is reduced and 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 it to command it.
