See Better - Think Better - Play Better
Athletes: To get more playing time, you need to go beyond the standard training techniques that everyone else uses. Your eyes and your brain are the keys to unlock all of your sports performance skills. It's time to focus on the cognitive side of your game.
Parents: You've spent thousands to get your developing athlete on the right team with the right coach. Now, invest in the most important components of skill acquisition; visual perception, pattern recognition and decision-making.
Coaches: Mental mistakes, missed assignments and slow decisions are holding your team back. While you teach them the tactics of the game, they may benefit from supplemental training for their vision and cognitive skills. Think of it like strength and conditioning for the brain.
At 80 Percent Mental, we offer the latest science-based apps/systems to help athletes see better and think better so they can get more playing time and give them an edge over their competition.
Advanced Vision Assessment and Training
When playing sports, your eyes take in over 80% of the available sensory information as compared to your other four senses. Over 30% of the neurons in your brain are devoted to processing visual input.
So, it makes perfect sense to train your visual perception so that you can see patterns developing, react quicker to moving objects and give yourself that extra tenth of a second to make the right decision.
We work with leading visual perception tools to assess and train sensorimotor skills.
Cognitive Skills Assessment and Training
You know your 40-yd dash time, your resting heart rate and maybe even your VO2 max. But do you know your reaction time, pattern recognition ability or working memory capacity? These are just a few of the brain skills you use hundreds of times in every game. They can also cause mental mistakes, turnovers and poor decisions.
Using well-known computerized perceptual-cognitive assessment tools (not IQ tests), we can reveal your athletic brain's strengths and weaknesses. From that perspective, we can provide a customized, online training program that you can do anytime on your laptop, tablet or smartphone.
