I have had the opportunity of using and incorporating the Vizual Edge Trainer within my programs. I was the Head Strength and Conditioning Coordinator for the Cincinnati Reds from 2002-2004 and currently the strength and conditioning coordinator at St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati.
"As a major league conditioning coordinator responsible for a major league program, minor league system and Latin American academies, you are always looking to find the cutting edge research, software and training techniques, to give your athletes the best chance of success.
"During our research we discovered that a baseball player's vision plays an important part in how well he performs day in and day out. Much like the physical development programs we designed to develop our players strength, speed and quickness, we could now incorporate vision training as part of their training routines.
"The Vizual Edge Program proved to us that visual skills can be taught, trained, practiced and enhanced. The benefits of the program are simple, to provide visual skills and training. The initial evaluation is approximately 30 minutes. The assessment provides a specific profile of the athletes strength and weaknesses. Once the athlete knows his strengths and weaknesses the program can be designed specifically for him. The training sessions usually take 20 to 30 minutes and should be performed at least twice a week.
"We had great success with the program and our athletes looked forward to vision training. I'm in the process of incorporate Vizual Edge into our strength and conditioning programs at St. X. I believe that the younger we can expose our athletes to vision training, the less they will have to compensate with their vision later in their athletic careers.
