Resetting the Stage - C.K., American Record Swimmer:
'Smart' work is the underlying concept of most successful collegiate training programs. With limited time due to academic course load, actual class time, and outside of pool commitments, training becomes a test of efficiency. What progress can an athlete make in 2hrs in the pool on any given day?
Training for nearly 18 years and waking up at 5:30 for morning workouts each day beginning freshman year of high school ingrained many lessons on that capacity to get effective work, accomplished, whether in the pool, in the weight room, or in the classroom. This relentless focus on efficiency combined with narrowly missing my shot at the 2016 Olympics pushed me to find a solution that could allow the world to train at a higher level of efficiency than previously possible.
As an athlete, it's a somewhat straightforward task to recognize how good you feel on a given day. That sensation; the relative fluidity of your movement through space in that workout, is determined by an array of factors largely related to training structure, prior workouts, food intake, sleep, and countless outside environmental stressors.
The most beautiful and game changing component of the Bodbox technology is the ability to optimize many of these factors with no additional work on the side of the athlete or trainee. That is, the Bodbox can automatically analyze and optimize the work you're putting in from afar, with no 'wearable', just color, freeing the user of many constraints of current technology.
Its ability to capture actual body movement, velocity, and positional data has allowed us to develop a data set from Olympic and professional athletes that can never be reproduced but can be applied to your body, your muscle fiber type, and your goals to build you to your goals faster and with more efficiency than the world believed possible.
Training Optimally - D.W., Elite Trainer and Sports Scientist:
In training it is all about the balance of stress/risk of the training means you decide to use and if you mess up that balance that's where you will get results that are underwhelming. If you train minimally you will not build the speed, power or strength to be successful in your sport and if you train with only high intensity means for an extended period of time your body will constantly be in survival mode and will either not fully adapt to the training or you could end up injured, which means a loss of training time.
The best coaches in the world know how to maintain an optimal balance between these high, medium, and low intensity training means to keep making progress with the lowest risk of injury to the athlete. When you have the ability to train injury free in a fluid manner while being exposed to multiple intensities you will be in a far better position to exceed in your sport and put your team in the best position to win.
At the end of the day its the athletes who score the most points or cover a certain distance in the shortest amount of time that get to stand on the podium or receive a scholarship to their dream school to play their given sport. Not the athletes who ran the fastest speed on a treadmill, did the most agility/speed ladder drills, lifted the most weight in the gym, or puked the most during training.
