"[The app] is insane to me. You're talking about technology that is thousands and thousands of dollars and you have it on your phone and you can just go outside in your backyard and just take a quick video and then you track that data in real-time. What’s my power output? What’s my RSI? Now I have that data. I go through a whole offseason of training and we jump once a week. For me it’s cold hard data that shows what you’re doing is working. I want the data to prove that what I’m doing is working. So, that’s why I think this is extremely important."
“We have used the Loden Sports technology with all of our sports this year, and it has given us fantastic data that helps us monitor our athletes fatigue and energy levels. The Readiness score has been a helpful tool to alert us If athletes are starting to trend in a negative direction, allowing us to adjust their training regimen to keep them healthy. Our goal is to make sure our athletes are peaking physically during the playoffs; the Loden technology has helped us achieve that goal.”
“We had [a player] and he was the highest scorer in our program and [the team] started to watch what he was doing and he was getting up at 5am and running stadium steps and running sprints and doing shuttles and after his scores came in, he scored so high, the next thing you know he has a group with him. He has six [other guys] with him doing the workouts and training the way he was training because they wanted to do what he was doing they wanted to score what he scored because his scores were really impressive. With data and the science behind it and just seeing how these kids are training, they want to do what the kid who is doing well is doing and so, it really added to our program.”
“In seeing the results that the kids are getting, that holds me and my programming more accountable. It’s instant feedback for me because I can see those results. It starts with the program; I need to be able to provide them the best road map for their abilities to then be able to transfer that over to the tests and ultimately to the field. It holds me accountable.”
“At first, I was super envious that I never had anything like this when I was playing so, I was like, this is great. I think a lot of times as a parent with a teenager, you’re not getting a lot of information from your child, everything is good… there’s no way I was going to get any of this information. If you ask your kid, do you feel powerful? Do you feel fast? Any teenager with some confidence is going to tell you, yea… These data points really do a good job of showing where your strengths are and where your weaknesses are.”
