Speed, Skill, and Reaction Development for Youth Sports Programs

Speed, Skill, and Reaction Development for Youth Sports Programs

The effectiveness of our systems for sports development has been well demonstrated with the implementation of SMARTfit in training programs at the Los Angeles Lakers, the University of Southern California, and Pepperdine University. The same physical and mental challenges that help professional athletes achieve elevated levels of cognitive focus and physical exertion can be applied to help young athletes develop their talent and skills in new ways. SMARTfit's gamified programming excels in preparing athletes for real competition.


Specialized training
activities for youth sports

At all levels of competitive sports training - even in youth sports - athletes work to develop a performance advantage. Performing at the highest level involves more than just physical training. Particularly at elite levels of competition when most athletes are in prime conditioning and have well developed skill sets, the difference in performance level often comes down to mental concentration and cognitive focus. The SMARTfit systems addresses this need for mental performance by bringing the cognitive gaming component into exercise.

SMARTfit meets and matches any athletes own level of play and challenges them to improve. Training with SMARTfit improves sports skills such as speed, reaction times, ball control, accuracy, core balance, visual-motor coordination and peripheral visual awareness. By improving these skills, young athletes make faster, smarter decisions under pressure. Results reflect between 5-20% improvement in speed and reaction skills in three weeks of any conditioned athlete. Many report that their perception of the game appeared to slow down giving them more time to focus on strategy and technique.

Personalized training and improvements
specific to each individual

“SMARTfit takes the athlete to the next level. The first day they often lack focus, coordination and balance, and often their retention level is lacking. After the second session there is improvement in everything. By the third time is there is a major improvement and athletes become more attentive to their surroundings and display improved speed of mental processing making it appear as if they have mastered movement without thought.”–Raul Murillo, Owner Coreathletics Academy, MS, CSCS, Biomechanics

SMARTfit gamified programming gives athletes fresh activities to keep workouts interesting yet as challenging as real competition, conditioning mind and body in new ways which trainsfers to real improved performance during match play. SMARTfit is already implemented by collegiate sports programs at USC, and is delivering exciting results at the highest level with some athletes making the pick by professional sports teams.

Application Companion

SMARTfit is a workout console with an integrated CPU which allows users to configure a comprehensive collection of gamified drills, and training modes to fit all of the major sports played at college level. Custom lesson plans can be designed which allows trainers to create their own sports specific training programs that will precisely measure, track and validate development. Users can also control the CPU from a remote application that is compatible with iOS and Android devices allowing users to develop their own personal workflow.

Beth Fisher
“Everything in Parkinson’s research points to the need for combining cognitive challenges with physical activities- I cannot think of a better way to do that than with SMARTfit.”
Professor of Clinical Physical Therapy Director, Neuroplasticity and Imaging Laboratory Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy University of Southern California
Christopher Powers
“SMARTfit takes the focus of the player off the mechanics and moves it to the external, forcing the brain to solve two problems at the same time. It solves the big missing part in rehab because we want carry-over onto the field. SMARTfit is a great tool to test if that is happening. Further studies will help us to measure its full effectiveness.”

“I am extremely intrigued and optimistic that SMARTfit will prove to be an exceptionally effective and important tool that combines cognitive and motor training in unique and endless combinations to address a multitude of indications within the athletic and medical realms.”
Professor, Neurosurgery, Neurology, and Biomedical Engineering USC Director, USC Neurorestoration Center
Charles Flowers
“I have been using SMARTfit on patients who have post-concussion syndrome and seeing most of their symptoms completely resolved within 2-3 weeks. I look forward to conducting a formal study to validate my findings.”

Keeping workouts new and interesting while developing the cognitive focus and mental sharpness of young athletes perfectly fills the need for a universal training method that sports specialists have sought for decades. The SMARTfit system is being widely implemented in a variety of athletic programs. Please request a consultation to discuss your youth sports program.
