Maximal Strength and Vertical Jump Height Correlation

“There is simply a direct correlation between maximal strength levels of the hip and knee extensors and vertical jump height. A classic example of this occurred a few years ago at the National Strength and Conditioning Association convention. Vertec was there and they were giving away a vertical-jump-measuring device to the strength coach who had the highest vertical leap. For the first few days, I was in the lead. After all, my vertical leap had hit 36".”

“I generally ask for a three-year commitment and a minimum of 16 contacts a year. I change the client's training programs every 3 weeks and the program I design is designed specifically for YOU. What's your investment for making rapid progress? I charge $350.00 an hour. Yes, it's steep when you compare it to what ordinary personal trainers charge, but I won't waste your time and I assure you that you'll progress faster than you ever have before.”
