USA Weightlifting, the national governing body for the sport of weightlifting, announces today a new partnership with VersaLifts as its Official Shoe Insert and Squat Depth Partner.
VersaLifts heel lift inserts are a great tool to add to your weightlifting toolkit to help improve your squat form and range of motion when you need a little extra lift. These inserts help provide stability and support for athletes who may not have access to a traditional weightlifting shoe, or who are looking to add additional heel-to-toe drop to their current training shoes. They are also a great asset for any strength and conditioning coach who may want to avoid using plates as heel lift alternatives.
“We are thrilled to partner with Versalifts and hope our members are able to take advantage of the versatility of VersaLifts heel lift inserts to keep lifting no matter where they may be in their lifting journey.” says USA Weightlifting CEO, Matt Sicchio.
Versalifts was founded by Shane and Michelle Rothlisberger in 2015 with a goal of improving squat form and range of motion for athletes and individuals at any level of experience. Since then they have manufactured and sold thousands of pairs of versalifts in both domestic and international markets.
“It’s an honor to launch this new partnership with USA Weightlifting. We’re continually inspired by the USAW community, whether it’s those daring to pick up a barbell for the first time, or the elite athletes who have brought home Olympic medals, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to provide simple and effective gear to help each individual on their strength journey.” - Shane Rothlisberger, owner/founder of VersaLifts.
