Improvements of Gross and Fine Motor Skills

Gross and fine motor skills, balance, and proprioception – proprioception is the ability to innately sense your body’s position, movement, and spatial orientation, even when you’re not looking. Examples of this are running through an agility ladder without having to look down at your feet, catching a fly ball without looking at your hand, or being able to crossover a basketball from one hand to the other without looking at your arms.

Change the Way You Process Mentally

Mental processing, motor planning, and motor sequencing—the ability to take information, process it, plan your next actions, and implement those actions. The goal is to improve your reaction time, and your ability to take timely and appropriate actions.

Enhance Your Visual Motor Skills

Visual motor skills—like peripheral vision and efficient visual information processing—to enhance the mental connection between what you see and how your body reacts to it.

Arizona Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald Can Catch A Football With His Eyes Closed, Here’s How You Can Too!

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald can catch a football with his eyes closed. In fact, Fitzgerald, arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL, occasionally catches passes in games with his eyes closed like he has a sixth sense. However his incredible skill did not manifest from some supernatural event, it is the product of years of rigorous training that tested both his physical and mental abilities, starting with a habits developed in his childhood.

As a kid, Fitzgerald suffered from a vision problem that made it difficult to pay attention in school. His grandfather Dr. Robert Johnson, an optometrist, worked with Fitzgerald to overcome his disability through vision therapy. Fitzgerald believes that one of the keys to his success in the NFL stemmed from this eye strengthening he received as a child. Inspired by his grandfather’s initial visual acuity drills, Fitzgerald soon came up with his own drills at home. Night after night, Fitzgerald would lie awake in his bed and throw a football up in the air, catching it in his dark bedroom. He claims he caught the majority of the tosses, which developed into his uncanny feel for the ball in the air during games.
