“As an athletic trainer in the NBA, the ToePro has become our favorite exercise device for increasing not just toe strength, but also horizontal jump distance. It also plays an important role in injury prevention.“
“I love my ToePro and use it every morning before I run. It helps strengthen my feet, ankles, and calves, and improves my push-off and running form. Takes just a few minutes a day and has helped keep me injury free. I even pack it when I travel!”
“Simplistic genius! The ToePro is incredibly easy to use and my athletes love it. I’m always surprised how many high-level athletes present with toe weakness, and how much they improve after using the ToePro. I wish I started using it sooner!”
