TYPES OF PEAK ACHIEVEMENT TRAINING

There are twelve different and complementary types of training which are possible using the Peak Achievement Trainer®:
  • Strengthening the ability of the brain's Executive Attention Network to momentarily focus attention.
  • Strengthening the ability of the midbrain to momentarily intensify alertness/arousal.
  • Strengthening the ability of the Executive Attention Network to sustain focused attention.
  • Strengthening the ability of the midbrain to sustain alertness/arousal.
  • Simultaneously increasing Focus and Alertness to meet a heavy demand.
  • Keeping Focus up while lowering Alertness/Arousal to decrease stress.
  • Focusing attention on parts of the body that the coach wishes to work with.
  • Train the user to take brief, relaxing microbreaks which recharge the brain.
  • Find the best possible degree of alertness/arousal to perform particular activities optimally.
  • Perform arbitrary sequences of concentration, alertness, and microbreaks.
  • Discover and enhance performance of the sequences that are optimal for particular activities.
  • Perform these sequences despite distractions such as self-talk and crowd noise.

MEASURABLE RESULTS

An important advantage in using the Peak Achievement Trainer® is that it has the ability to provide measurable results. Training sessions can be saved and later printed out for study and review with the student. Key activities can be videoed in combination with the client's pattern of Focus and Alertness, wirelessly at a distance. Coaches and athletes have found this to be very helpful in tracking progress so that they know precisely how they are doing. Athletes can individually learn, and trainers can actually teach their clients how to visualize their performance more effectively, since the Trainer reflects how absorbed they are in the image. Once they are absorbed, the Trainer will tell how focused the athlete is on the activity they are imaging, as well as how alert they are. You can then analyze their sequence of focus, alertness, and microbreaks, and compare it with an optimum sequence. The coach can actually watch their focus wax and wane as they visualize each part of the activity, and intervene to improve it.

Results are quick. Improvements can be achieved in less than five 20 to 30-minute sessions, with peak mental training in under 20 sessions. The improvements are very long lasting. The Peak Achievement Trainer® can be used to improve an athlete's focus on sights, sounds, or even a particular part of their body. This can be particularly helpful if the session can be combined with or followed by coaching on how to move this body part more effectively. There are many powerful approaches that can be created with this new ability to actually see how well an athlete is focusing.

The Trainer is the only Neurovideofeedback™ system available that is very user-friendly, portable, understandable, and affordable. It is designed both for individual use by athletes or for professional use by trainers, coaches, and sport psychologists. Athletes can become more mentally fit with the Trainer. They can quickly improve their ability to visualize that perfect performance, reduce anxiety, help eliminate pain, and better their odds at winning. They may be able to help themselves to get to, and stay in, "The Zone", and learn how to enhance their "Iceberg Profile", which measures moods associated with winning. It may also help to improve strength and fitness training by enhancing their focus as they pump iron.

HOW TO USE IT

Just follow the "Quick Guide to Performing a Peak Achievement Training® Session" to put on the SensorPhone a headphone with wet sponge Sensors, and start a session. All you have to do is wet the Sensors with salt water, click a few times, and you’re in training. Focus on the line on the screen and it goes down. The tighter you focus, the lower it goes. There is also a sound that increases in pitch as you focus more intensely. Within minutes, you feel as if you are in control.

Furthermore, the Peak Achievement Trainer® can actually tell you how absorbed an athlete is in the mental images they are creating! Just imagine all the powerful approaches you can create with this new ability to actually see how well an athlete is focusing. The Trainer has the unique ability to actually track the users' changes in focus as they are visualizing themselves doing a particular task or sport. For example, the coach and/or the athlete can actually see and hear the changes in the athlete's focus on the computer screen and through the speakers during a tennis volley as the player imagines himself deciding on how to hit the ball (the line and the pitch go up), and then taking a mentally relaxing microbreak as it goes over the net. First, the player focuses in on a static image--for example, a still picture of themselves before they start a task. Then, they put 90% of their attention on the image and use the other 10% to track the sound. It increases in pitch as they become more absorbed. The athlete does this until they are thoroughly absorbed and the line on the screen is as high as they can get it. Then they set the image into motion, visualizing their favorite sport. The pitch of the sound tracks how intensely focused they are from moment to moment. Later, they can review their focusing during the visualization by looking at the shape of the line on the screen.

HOW IT WORKS

The more that the brain practices concentration, the easier the task becomes. This is the basis for all learning. The Peak Achievement Training® activates the Executive Attention Network part of the brain--the part that has been recently identified as controlling attention to important tasks and to new learning. With this continued mental exercise, brain function improves, the metabolism and blood flow to the affected parts of the brain are increased, and the tissue grows better connections between brain cells. This is very similar to the tissue changes after exercising a muscle.

By enhancing the function of the Anterior Cingulate Cortex and the prefrontal lobe, the Peak Achievement Trainer® improves the user’s ability to pay attention. Due to the patents that have been issued for the Peak Achievement Trainer® and the InAll protocol, the Trainer is the only Neurovideofeedback™ ™ method that can be used for directly strengthening the Executive Attention Network and Anterior Cingulate Cortex to improve concentration.

COMPUTER REQUIREMENTS

We recommend the following minimum computer configuration for optimal performance but less complete computers will still support most functions:
  • Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP or (if you must) Vista. We still prefer the stability of Windows XP over Vista. You can order many different types by searching for "XP AND laptop" here. Check the descriptions carefully. Do not buy a 64-bit Windows operating system. It will not work. A 32-bit system on a 64-bit processor is fine.
  • A Pentium processor running at 1.5 GHz. or better or equivalent. The system works on laptop mobile processors. Dual processors are even better.
  • 512 MB RAM or more.
  • 85 MB disc space for the basic program.
  • Two free USB ports for wireless Receiver and program copy protection (HASP). The battery charger can connect to one of these while its not in use or to another USB port.
  • Direct X 9.0b or later (supplied).
  • Windows Media Player (supplied).
  • A DVD player, preferably WinDVD 6 or above.
  • A graphics card with 3D and DVD video acceleration and 64 MB or more dedicated video RAM. Integrated video systems that share memory with the processor are not recommended. Assuming your PC meets the other requirements, a fast video card will give you the most bang for the buck. Cards targeted at the gaming or multimedia market with newer chipsets from ATI or NVIDIA should work well.
  • SoundBlaster or compatible sound card
  • For Neurovideofeedback™, a DVI camcorder or a webcam (and an appropriate USB or Firewire port) is required and a very large amount of hard drive space (207 MB per minute of projected video memory capacity) is recommended.
  • MACs with PC emulators are not supported.
  • Laptops customized for the PAT and with everything installed are available at extra cost.

PERFORMANCE RESULTS

Our clients typically report significant increases in their ability to focus, and improved memory, after only three or four training sessions. The charts below, using the older software depict the results achieved by one trainee in learning to cycle between concentration (the decreased output) and brief periods of unfocused relaxation (increased output), both initially (Session 2), and two sessions later. Look at the large, constant difference between conditions in the second graph, recorded over an 80-second time period. In Session 4, he did this consistently, for five full cycles. This level of improvement in concentration in the early stages of neurofeedback training has not been seen with prior training approaches.

Session 2 and Session 4

NEUROFEEDBACK STUDY RESULTS

Study after study is demonstrating significant positive results using neurofeedback for a wide array of problems and applications. As an example, in the academic area, a study at the University of Tennessee of over 1,000 students with attention problems showed the average improvement in grades was 1.5 levels (for example, from a GPA of a D to a C+. Their standardized test scores improved by about 2.5 grade levels, and IQ performance test scores improved by an average of twenty points.

The chart below vividly shows the measured improvement with neurofeedback training in an independent study of 104 adults with attention problems on the Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA) after training for 20 sessions. The TOVA is a standardized test that measures concentration.

PEAK ACHIEVEMENT TRAINING® OFFERS FASTER IMPROVEMENT

Peak Achievement Training® may be three times faster than any other method of neurofeedback concentration training, according to a study with football players conducted by Dr. Jonathan Cowan. Initially, a majority of the players had lower than normal ability to pay attention, as determined by a Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA).. After only five to nine training sessions of twenty to forty minutes each with the Trainer, their concentration levels improved markedly, as measured by another TOVA test. The average improvement was about the same as previous approaches could do in twenty sessions. None of their test scores was below normal after the training.

To Dr. Cowan’s knowledge, these are the most rapid changes in attention test scores with neurofeedback ever recorded. The student-athletes with the lowest attention scores at the beginning of the study reported that after the first or second session, they were better able to focus in class. All of the players said they were better able to concentrate on the plays and that their weightlifting had improved. After intensely focusing on their hamstring muscles during one Peak Achievement Training® session, they were immediately able to do more repetitions, and their enthusiasm for pumping iron improved. Soon, they could add more weight to the increased repetitions.

THE TRAINER OFFERS QUICK, SUBSTANTIAL BENEFITS AFTER A SIMPLE SETUP

The Peak Achievement Trainer® comes as a complete package, with a video that shows you how to do everything you need to begin training in less than half an hour. The Training is quick and easy. Training time is rapid and can be done away from athletic practice on a PC, or at practice with a laptop. The average user only spends 20 to 30 minutes 2 or 3 times a week in self-administered training sessions for 12 to 20 sessions. Significant improvements in athletic performance, concentration, memory, and reduced anxiety are normally seen after just 3 or 4 training sessions. The training can be done individually, or administered by a trainer or staff assistant. An hour of our consultation on training is included in the package. The improvements are very long lasting, potentially for lifetime.

If you want expert help in setting up the program with your Trainer, we can refer you to several consultants who are familiar with using it in various ways with athletes. I feel certain that they would share their training approaches with you, or you could engage them to work with you and your athletes.

In less than a month, you can make a major difference in their mental readiness . Future champions deserve the best you can give them!
