FAQ

Absolutely! One of the best parts of VBT and Perch is the ability to enhance intent and increase a competitive atmosphere. With Perch's leaderboard you can create custom competitions for teams or groups, any exercise, any time window, any metric.

Perch is a cloud-based system. All of your data will be able to be viewed on your tablet, though most easily seen and organized in your dashboard at app.perch.fit. From there, you can look at the performance of your entire organization down to an individual athlete level, understand programming compliance, readiness, and even export any data through our robust export feature.

Perch doesn’t have a cap on athletes using a singular device, though we recommend in the interest of weight room flow, and for maximum ease of use, somewhere between 1-6 athletes during a session on a single device.

Perch tracks almost any lift in the weight room. Anything you do with a barbell, trap bar, safety squat bar, or other funky bar you have. We also capture non-barbell or bodyweight movements performed with dumbbells, kettlebells, or any other implement. And even if we can't track it yet, with Perch PLAN you can program anything and record load so you understand total volume using just Perch in the weight room.

We currently track 11+ metrics through Perch TRAIN, and 4+ metrics through Perch EVALUATE. For example: Mean and peak velocity, mean and peak power, eccentric mean velocity, eccentric time, and many more!.

Yep! Perch is compatible with most racks right out of the box. If your rack has a cylindrical cross member, or an obtrusion, we have a solution called the “Rack Adapter” that will enable you to use Perch no problem! You can even use Perch even without a weight rack. Perch can be placed on the ground or box and capture data from that angle. You can also pack it down into a compact carrying case for portability.

Perch can be powered via wall or outlet power, or with our Perch battery. The Perch battery has 10-12 hours of continuous usage, can power down in between sessions, and is fully rechargeable in about 3-4 hours. It has rubber coated magnets to attach anywhere on your weight rack.
