As a sports fanatic, I know how devoted athletes can be, and I wanted to find a way to help these intrinsically motivated people to achieve their goals. Herein is the start of the metaphorical journey that led me to ALTIS.
As track and field coaches we’ve often heard that the best learning takes place not in formal educational settings nor coaching clinics but in the opportunities one takes to sit down over coffee with a coach who has demonstrated success at the highest level.
In my journey to try and understand excellence in sport, I have been fortunate to work in a multitude of settings with some incredible mentors. It has been my observation that there are key common denominators between these people, the environments they work in, and the messages they deliver. Most importantly, however – their actions exhibit synchronicity.
At ALTIS we are always looking for quality technologies that can aid us in all aspects of training, but especially in the High Performance and Return to Play realms. In this post, I will outline a case study for an athlete involved in our return to play procedures, and how we utilized a Freelap timing system to monitor Training Gaps and to track Landmarks.
