OUR FIRST ATHLETE IN GOOGLE GLASS

Image
We'll be sharing a little more often regarding our experience with Google Glass and how it's helping our industry of Sports Vision Training. We're very appreciative to Google for choosing us to be part of their Glass Explorer Program. With this particular post we're going to be using them on Daniel Robertson from the Oakland A's. We just met Daniel this year through Dave Coggin's facility PFA. He's really taken to the training and we're going to point out one particular area of Sports Vision that is so vital, yet overlooked by so many athletes. It's the ability to focus on one particular aspect to make you more efficient as an athlete. The theory is, when you focus on one particular detail, whether easy or difficult, the rest of your performance lets muscle memory take over and you're able to perform by letting your mind relax.

We'll release more videos as they come available with our athletes and their drills, but for now we just wanted to let our patient base and athletes know it's here and we can't wait to use it on them. We head to Spring …

bebe is known for its hottest styles for the sexy sophisticated woman. The name 'bebe' (pronounced as Bee-Bee) is a portmanteau derived from the soliloquy from Shakespeare's play "Hamlet" in which eponymous Prince ponders: "To be or not to be". The name is never capitalized as it is a combination of two verbs forming a metaphorical verb as whole. Founder Manny Mashouf, who emigrated from Iran to the United States in the early 1970s came up with the name after a conversation that was had at a party he attended in San Francisco during the 1970s shortly before …
