  • When Geist residents and entrepreneurs Marty Miller and Mark Gricius watched their daughters play basketball on the same travel team over the last few years, they couldnt help but wonder, What would help them gain better skills and become more competitive in an already competitive program? The ultimate answer? Better agility and

    quickness. The solution? A product since developed by the two to help athletes become stronger and faster on their feet, called simply, The Cube.

    This new performance enhancement tool is a portable grid-like system that became available on the market just seven months ago. It is already being utilized by several Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball programs, along with Moto Travel Volleyball Club in Fishers, and various high schools throughout the Indianapolis area. The Cube is designed to help athletes improve their ability to move forward, sideways, backwards and at angles that, according to Miller, have been typically forgotten in standard agility training programs.

    The Cube can fit inside a typical gym bag when folded,

    and can be set up and ready to use within 60 seconds, says Miller. This, he says, is a huge benefit, as it allows coaches and players to work on skills at home, on the road, inside or outdoors. And although The Cubes initial use was for athletic development, it is also being used in additional applications, such as ankle and knee rehabilitation, cardio fitness programs and team building activities.

    Almost all coaches that have seen The Cube in action have been very receptive to this new idea, says Gricius. Once they are shown a few simple drills that can help them with their specific sport, they really see the benefit of our product.

    We use The Cube to allow our girls to warm up before tournament games, says Eric Rhiver, owner of Moto Travel Volleyball Club. When you have limited space but need to get your players game-ready and focused, its the perfect tool. Rhiver also utilizes The Cube Training Program, and sends the device home with players so that they can practice drills and work on skills on their own time.

    Rhiver says that The Cube is a low-cost and convenient way to implement SQA (skills, quickness and agility) training with athletes in a fun and challenging way. My players get competitive when they see how well another player is able to do The Cube drills, and it encourages them to improve on their own skills, he says.

    Miller says that The Cube helps with balance and coordination, and allows users to implement backward movements, which ultimately help in overall skill improvement. In fact, students at Indianapolis University, Purdue University of Indianapolis (IUPUI) are currently involved in a special project to help explain additional benefits that teams and programs can experience by using this type of system, and implementing textbook work studies into real-life applications. This project will focus on different ways to increase cardio, balance, coordination and quickness while also increasing agility in the 360 degree movement that The Cube allows.

    Were very excited to see what started out as just an idea come to garner so much interest and be used by so many people, Miller says. We hope to continue to explore new uses for The Cube, and to see growth in the number of athletes, coaches and individuals who use it for a variety of health and fitness purposes.
