Grind aims to solve specific problems within all athletic communities by creating the most innovative and inspiring training machines. We believe athletes deserve simple & beautifully designed products from a company that represent and understands their problems best.
GRIND is creating a portable, more affordable basketball shooting machine that captures a player’s rebounds, passes the ball back (emulating a game-like pass), and allows players to shoot up to 1,200 shots per hour. Our Basketball shooting machine is designed to be affordable and portable. Built with a lightweight design that folds into the size of a large duffle bag maximizing the usability for athletes.
