What is the Ankle Foot Maximizer?
AFX is unlike any other foot and ankle strengthening system on the market. Its patented technology offers:
Innovative Resistance System
A variety of resistance bands allow for complete, balanced strengthening from early stage rehabilitation to high-performance athletic training.
Flexible Foot Support
Strong yet comfortable, the flexible foot support provides excellent grip, allows the user to arch or extend the foot and toes, strengthen intrinsic muscles, and ensures proper anatomical alignment regardless of foot length.
The AFX design allows you to strengthen through a complete range of motion, safely and effectively – something other weight-bearing devices and exercises can’t offer.
AFX’s resistance system, foot support and multi-directional strengthening enable you to mirror movements that are specific to your sport or activity. It also allows for cutting-edge training techniques, including eccentric loading.
Easy-To-Use and Portable
AFX has been designed with you in mind – just strap in and go! Whether you’re coming back from an injury or going for gold, a few minutes a week in one comfortable position can produce remarkable results.
Why use AFX?
AFX was borne out of frustration with current foot and ankle strengthening methods. Rubber band and towel exercises are cumbersome, while balance boards and stability platforms have limited use for ankle strengthening, and do little for the feet. The easy-to-use AFX system actively engages the muscles of the foot and ankle, while still providing a wide range of resistance to meet everyone’s needs.
If you’ve suffered from a sprain, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, or a broken bone, AFX provides a strengthening system that can be used throughout your rehabilitation. You can increase resistance as your strength increases, while maintaining a full range of motion.
AFX offers athletes and active individuals a hidden source of strength. Your feet and ankles are a critical, though underappreciated part of athletic performance. By strengthening them, you decrease your risk of injury, and dramatically improve your jumping ability, speed, balance and agility.
Who is using AFX?
Athletes to physiotherapists to weekend warriors are beginning to discover the power of AFX. While positive test results have convinced professional athletic trainers that foot and ankle training is critical to better performance, AFX has also made its way into many clinics and rehabilitation practices.
“I really like the AFX. The ability to focus on specific muscles around the foot and ankle is very apparent and it’s much more user friendly than I had originally thought it would be. Patients really like using it in the clinic as they report that they can feel what is happening around their ankle better than with other bands and tubes. I’ve used it with a variety of different foot and ankle conditions and it’s been re-named ‘the accelerator’ around our office by one client who thinks it’s the best thing since sliced bread!”
-Timberly George, Sports Physiotherapist & Canadian Olympic Physio, City Sports & Physiotherapy
“Some of the main goals with ankle/foot rehab after injury are increasing strength and stability to improve performance and prevent re-injury. I have used the AFX in clinic with anyone from athletes to the general population and found it to be quite user friendly and particularly great at targeting key muscles with adequate resistance. This has provided clients with a greater sense of strength gains over pre-existing strengthening methods.”
- Carrie Viola, Physiotherapist, City Sports & Physiotherapy
“Foot and ankle injuries are a huge problem in professional and amateur sports. The AFX is the only product out there that allows for complete foot and ankle strengthening.”
- Scott McCullough, MSc, NBA Athletic Trainer – Toronto Raptors
“AFX is an absolute must-have tool for those who struggle with foot, leg and hip issues, those who are transitioning to minimalist shoes and anyone who wants to improve their form authentically. It is an easy-to-use, well-designed multi-tasking tool that encourages greater stability in your stride.”
- Jenny Hadfield, MSc., Running Expert, Author (Marathoning For Mortals, Running For Mortals), Columnist (Runners World, Women’s Running)
“I use AFX for stretching my lower leg and ankle muscles. It allows me control that I cannot find using any other method. It also allows me to strengthen only the muscles I want to target; I haven’t found anything else that will do that. It is really compact and easy to travel with so I can take it with me where ever I am competing.”
- Lorene Hatelt, 8-time World Triathlete champion, a Paralympian, Certified Triathlon Coach & Personal Trainer

Had Plantar Fasciitis
I've been battling plantar fasciitis for a few years now, then I saw an interview with Aussie 10000m champ David Mcneil on some running blog. He said he was using it and it really helped, so even though $149 seemed exy I thought I would give it a try and it worked! In about 4 weeks I was back running and have had no more probs.
