Justin Roethlingshoefer is the Head Sports Performance Coach of Miami University's Mens Ice Hockey. He has worked Worked with the Edmonton Oilers, Columbus BLue Jackets, Springfield Falcons NHL and was an Intern and Graduate Assistant with the Louisville Cardinals- NCAA.
He has just begun using GymAware when it became evident that their current Tendo system did not allow for the precise individual programming that he required. This is Justin's GymAware experience:
With GymAware I could combine video analysis and power tracking/recognition and be able to show my athlete how they could correct themselves. It has allowed me to be able to give the athlete immediate feedback on how well they were moving the load. Any coach will know that it is useless throwing darts in the dark and trying to accomplish a given task, without actually knowing.
The IT and customer relations department is second to none. David has been nothing short of fantastic in working with me and assisting in my every need. The potential for this product is never ending, and its very user friendly. The impact with the athletes has been noticed immediately, with greater motivation, buy in, and understanding of what they are doing. They are becoming more intune with their bodies.
GymAware is very useful in helping to program in season loads. Depending on how the on ice training goes and our goal for the week in order to peak for our weekend series, I can base loads off bar speed. That is an amazing tool for us.
At present my main aims with GymAware are:
- In Season Power Tracking
- Programming loads
- Track off season and in season gains
- Prevent losses of power in season
- Educate both coaching staff and athletes
- Helping with the program buy in factor
