CoreVYO is an athletic harness system that trains strength, power, and speed with one unique difference: it promotes optimal body position and core control in sport-specific settings.

It’s an interactive communication tool used by elite athletes and trainers to teach and reinforce optimal athletic movement. CoreVYO optimizes athletic movement while increasing strength and decreasing injury. With two anchor points and a high friction coefficient, the CoreVYO harness allows athletes to be both assisted and resisted in three dimensions on their field of play and in the gym.

How did CoreVYO get its start? You’d have to go back to 2003, when Rick Celebrini first sketched a strange-looking belted harness he hoped could help a couple of injured NHL players get back on the ice.
