WE TRAIN THE BODY, THE BRAIN &
THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THEM.
AIQ Athletes THINK faster, REACT faster & MOVE faster.
To understand our training platform, it's important to recognize the relationship between physical movement and cognitive processing:
Physical movement in any sport cannot happen without stimulus recognition and cognitive processing.
The speed and efficiency of the movement itself is impacted by an athlete's balance, coordination & strength.
Our program is designed to create greater efficiency between the THINK & the MOVE, while developing the physical characteristics required to MOVE FASTER.
It is also necessary to understand that while all reactions in sport are PHYSICAL, they are based in a COGNITIVE process. The efficiency of the athlete's cognitive process, from recognition to reaction (RADAR), is known as the athlete’s Speed of Processing (SOP).
R- Recognize (SEE/HEAR external stimulus)
A- Attend (THINK-What can I do)
D- Decide (What SHOULD I do)
A- Accept (Brain tells body WHAT TO DO)
R- React (MOVE- The PHYSICAL reaction to the original stimulus)
When we develop the athlete's cognitive ability, it translates directly to their physical movement and efficiency. An athlete that learns to think & react faster while moving faster is quicker, smarter and more dynamic in any sporting event or competition.
When we add the improvement of BALANCE (the critical component of ALL movement), COORDINATION (the symmetrical execution of this movement) and STRENGTH (the maximum force that can be exerted during a movement) to the developmental equation, we create a smarter, more efficient & more explosive athlete.
While it’s difficult to quickly explain WHAT we do, it’s even harder to explain HOW we do it. Click the button below to learn more about our training platform and how we use Microgate technology and objective data to assess, train and test our AIQ athletes!

GET SMART. AIQ SMART.
IT'S TIME TO GET SMART ABOUT YOUR TRAINING...
Sport-Science & Technology have come a long way over the last five years. SMART training utilizes technology to assess athletic and cognitive performance. The data that is generated during the assessment allows us to customize our training to each athletes individual needs, while also providing feedback on symmetry and efficiency. Assessing an athlete has never been easier or more valuable. With our technology, athletic assessment has never been faster and it has also never provided more information. Speed, strength, explosiveness, power, quickness, cognitive speed, symmetry. We can test it all, quickly and accurately. No guesswork. No eyeball test. Real results in real time. That's the AIQ Smart difference.
We are excited about the opportunity to help you improve your athletic & cognitive performance. We ask our athletes to compete against themselves & time, get better every day and strive to be the best version of themselves.

THE FISH BOWL
THEY SAY A FISH CAN ONLY GROW AS BIG AS THE BOWL THEY LIVE IN...
Parents ask us all the time, how does my child compare to "insert local HS star's name here"? And our answer usually surprises them...
At AIQ, we train your athlete like he or she has more potential than anyone else in the world. Like a fish in a bowl, an athlete can only grow as much as their environment allows them to. When we set goals that are too low, they quickly become limitations. When we set goals that are too ambitious, we set the athlete up for failure. The truth is, every athlete deserves the opportunity to grow without limits or unrealistic expectations. In BOTH cases, the athlete's experience will be impacted by something other than their own unique potential.
The next question is usually something like this..."Are you saying it's unfair to set goals or expectations for my athlete?". And the answer is this...We believe that your athlete has tremendous potential. We also believe that we can help them reach that level of achievement WITHOUT comparing them to anyone else. What we ask is that your athlete become fiercely competitive with himself or herself. The goals we set for tomorrow are based on their objective measurements from today. This approach sets realistic expectations while also pushing the athlete to achieve consistently better results, over time, at their own developmental pace, without the pressure of competing with anyone but themself.
