My biggest challenge I had been trying to solve in working in the field of sport psychology was how to find a way to show quantified data to athletes that mental training is actually helping them. FocusCalm has been a great way to be able to do just that even from my mobile device.
The changes I noticed were that I was able to show this data in an easy to use format without even having to be with my athletes. They could also see that mental training can be fun through using the integrated games through FocusCalm. I have been using this with our baseball pitchers during their bullpen sessions - mentally putting them in stressful situations to see how they can get back to a more relaxed state allowing them to be able to pitch more in flow. I would say that at the price point and with all that it offers FocusCalm is a great solution to helping with one of the toughest parts of competition. I see people spending plenty of money on better equipment each year for their sport but the best equipment you have is your mind and FocusCalm is a great training tool for the one item that won't become outdated. It’s definitely a great product and a very easy to use app. With consistent use I could see this being a staple in high level athlete’s training regimen to supplement their physical training.

I serve as the Performance Coach for Auburn Wheelchair Basketball under the direction of Head Coach Robb Taylor. With assistance from the FocusCalm Team, we identified several student-athletes and assigned them to an evidence-based (5-week) FocusCalm protocol. The protocol was designed to measure changes in performance, health, and well-being from using neurofeedback as the basis of training. Our student-athletes not only enjoyed the overall experience, but the results were impactful across the board. Progressive shifts in their mindsets, focus, and sense of equanimity were some of the positive outcomes from using the FocusCalm Headband.The ongoing collaboration has been fruitful to say the least and we look forward to forthcomingcollaborative efforts with FocusCalm. I recommend the company, product, and especially the people to any of my clients.

Performance Coach Auburn - Wheelchair Basketball

One of my former coaches, Dick Vermeil, used to say, ’90 percent of what we do on the football field is mental.’ That mental preparation was done in the form of film review, walk throughs and understanding how best to attack each defense. Yet, we never did anything to increase our mental capacity to learn through managing stress and increasing mindfulness. FocusCalm has created a dynamic game plan to help me increase my cognitive ability and perform at the highest level.

As a mind-body coach who’s been teaching breathing drills and meditation in professional sports for nearly two decades, having the ability to use FocusCalm’s ground-breaking technology to see the effect on athletes’ brain states in real time and quantifiably measure progress has been a game changer in my work.

I started using FocusCalm a few months ago and it immediately became one of the core tools I use to provide mental training to the athletes I’m working with. One of my athletes is Iga Swiatek, the 2020 French Open champion. She uses it daily before and after practice and after matches.

I love the quality of the device and how thoughtful the app is. The exercises and games are well designed and enjoyable. I’m excited to integrate FocusCalm even more deeply into my programs and look forward to finding new ways to apply technology to sports psychology.

Brain training with FocusCalm helped me further refine all my mental training techniques – from preparation, to execution, and even reflection. Their daily exercises first helped me discover what state of readiness makes me perform best, and then, helped me get there.

When it comes to esports, the mental aspect is by far the most important…when you’re playing on stage there’s so many high pressure situations. Your job’s basically on the line every single match you play. Being able to improve your mental fortitude and get more relaxed in these high-pressure situations is what adds the most stability to our placements and our success.

Brian Baroska
Head Coach, Minnesota Rokkr

I have been a board-certified Neurofeedback practitioner for many, many years and have tried most headbands on the market. This one is beautifully made, charges quickly, connects to Bluetooth almost immediately which is a huge improvement over other devices, includes enough programs and exercises in the app to keep you busy but not so many to overwhelm you! The tech-support is impeccable and the price point is extremely reasonable for the product that you are receiving. I have a lifetime subscription and I am recommending it to all colleagues, clients, friends and family. I highly recommend this device to anyone who wishes to train their brain non-invasively for peak performance and calm focus. FocusCalm wins!

Clinical Director, NY Biofeedback

I really enjoyed the interactive component to FocusCalm. Far too often programs that focus on mindfulness are unable to engage children and hold their interest. However, FocusCalm provides the core components of mindfulness mixed with the interactive nature of games. This allows children to learn these tools while having fun and provides them with a visual representation of their performance, leading to more consistent engagement and enjoyment. I’ve utilized the program while working with children on executive functioning, distress tolerance, and impulsivity.

Blackhawk Family Development Center

FocusCalm has been very helpful in creating a space where I have been able to increase my awareness of my mindset needs. The preset programs are very intuitive and concise enough to be used during our very busy schedule. I would recommend Focuscalm as a great complementary addition to any performance and wellness system.

Robert Yip

The Workplace Experience with FocusCalm enabled our team to realize that Wellbeing and Mindfulness may be significantly enhanced by training our minds to relax and focus. Facilitated by amazing exercises, and dynamic/fun group sharing, we learned how we each may manage our mindset; and, how fundamentally beneficial that is to self and team.
