IM training helps users dominate the field!
Athletes are well aware of the importance of timing, coordination and split-second decision-making. Anyone who has missed a buzzer-beating shot or finished second by a fraction of a second knows that it was a matter of milliseconds between victory and defeat. Sometimes good just isn’t good enough; it’s time to be great!
That is where Interactive Metronome® (IM) can help. IM training has been used by athletes of various disciplines, both amateur and professional, with great success. Whether you are swinging a golf club or baseball bat, coordinated movement is responsible for your success. Greater neural efficiency results in more efficient brain connectivity, communication and synchronization between the essential brain networks. To put it simply, restoring your brain’s timing and rhythm results in improved processing and more fluid movement.
In addition to the hundreds of athletes like Vijay Singh and Glen Day that have sought IM training to gain that edge, IM has also worked with many university and professional sports teams to improve on performance, including: Miami Heat (NBA), Miami Dolphins (NFL), Florida Panthers (NHL), University of Notre Dame, Syracuse University, University of North Carolina and the University of Miami.
Susan is definitely no slouch; in fact, she is a world-class junior skater. However, Susan just couldn’t land a triple jump no matter how many training programs she exhausted. That is until she used Interactive Metronome! The clever trigger placement and exercise variations employed by her trainers targeted the exact movement she was missing. Not only did Susan land a triple jump, but she put it in her competition routine.
Part of what makes IM so unique is its ability to improve domain-general mechanisms. The domain-general mechanism of timing is a “jack of all trades” mechanism that manifests itself in sleep cycles, speech patterns, ability to attend over time and overall efficacy of brain communication. This timing in the brain, or temporal processing, has been shown to be deficient in individuals with impaired motor skills. IM is the only training program that improves timing in the brain in an organized, systematic, flexible and engaging format.
Research shows that combining whole body movements with cognitive tasks leads to overall better outcomes. Interactive Metronome® is a patented and unique training tool that challenges thinking and movement simultaneously, providing real-time millisecond feedback to help synchronize the body’s “internal clock.” Now, IM training doesn’t have to take time away from your sports training. With IM-Home, you can complete your IM training in the comfort of your home or gym before you begin your athletic regimen. That way you can also guarantee you are getting the most from your workouts.
