GymnasticsCoaching.com just did this story:

http://gymnasticscoaching.com/?p=1162

It reminds me of a homemade Vertimax machine (http://www.vertimax.com). Vertimax machines seem to be getting more and more popular in gymnastics. We have an athletic training center close to us that has one. Our girls that have used it have seen huge increases in their vertical jump.

Does anyone have a Vertimax machine at their gym?

I think I saw that at congress, or maybe just literature on it. It would be interesting to hear from someone who's been using it a while. Do the kids like it?
