In a nutshell:

GRIND solves problems for athletes by creating the most innovative and inspiring training equipment. We believe anyone who works as hard as an athletes does deserves simple & beautifully designed products from a company that represent and understands their problems best.


GRIND is the first company to create an affordable basketball shooting machine - that folds into a duffle bag. If you’ve never played basketball it’s a twelve foot tall 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 a large duffle bag maximizing the usability for athletes.
