I purchased the Plyo Box to bring to my gym because they don't offer any plyometric boxes. Plyometrics can increase the speed at which athletes can develop force and injury prevention for athletes in sports where there is a high degree of jumping, landing and side-stepping movements. Plyometrics have been shown to be highly effective in ACL injury prevention programs for athletes in sports such as volleyball, basketball and soccer (Hewett, 1996). The Adjustable Plyo Box is perfect for increasing my overall athletic power. Note: The Plyo Box only rises to 24" so if you need a higher platform you might want to consider an alternative to the Plyo Box.
Wanted to do box jumps and step ups/lunges with weights in small space (NYC apartment), this box is great for that. I am over 200 pounds, box is very stable for all kinds of movements, with or without weights. Changing the height is very easy and relatively fast. I also have a Stamina pull-up and dip tower, which is also a great product. You really can't go wrong with their functional fitness products.
I bought the step for an unconventional reason. I needed a step to get on my 4 poster bed which is at mid torso for me. I bought my bed in my twenties when I was ft and lean. I'm now almost 66 and put on a few pounds and not as fit. I can no longer hurdle myself onto the bed. I find that step is very sturdy and does not move while in use. The extra feet I don't use at this time but most likely will in a few more years when I need more lift, lol.
