There aren’t many players who love to get down in a defensive stance and stay with an offensive player.
Over a practice or game, movements break down. Over a season, the decay accelerates. We start to see players “reach” for a spot with their lead foot, moving from distal to proximal when trying to stay with an offensive player. The defender becomes off balance, vulnerable, and won’t be able to change direction as quickly.
To ensure our strength and positioning throughout the season, we work with our athletes to maintain movement strategies — focussing on moving through the middle without reaching and overextending. This translates onto the court by staying low and ready to react to what the defence brings.
"I’ve worked with CoreVYO from the start, and I’m impressed by its utility in a professional team environment. We’ve used it for functional training, rehabilitation, and conditioning; the feedback from our athletes has been extremely positive. It provides a simple yet effective platform to work on movement patterns and core training in the most functional and foundational way."
Jon Lee - Strength & Conditioning Coach, Toronto Raptors
"As an athlete competing at the top level for 14 years, I am always eager for ways to improve. CoreVYO has helped me use all my strength and power in a variety of movements that transfer directly into goalkeeping. Activating my core and being a more stable and balanced athlete has helped me not only avoid injuries, but come back sooner and stronger from them. I own my own CoreVYO and take it with me when I compete around the world."
Erin McLeod, Canadian Olympic Goaltender, London 2012 Bronze Medallist
"The CoreVYO is an integral part of our Sports Performance program. It helps us bridge the gap between the weight room and the court. The CoreVYO reinforces a compact and athletic posture that allows players to quickly grasp the role that their hips, glutes, and core play in superior performance."
Mike Elliott - Director of Performance/Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, Phoenix Suns
"In a short time, I’ve seen many benefits of CoreVYO. The convenient harness allows for easily switching direction of force, creating a functional training effect with real world application. Whether for injury prevention, rehabilitation, or strength and conditioning CoreVYO facilitates optimal bracing and sequencing throughout the unique positions and movements of a hockey player."
