Virtual Reality (VR) is exciting, new and fun! Even better - it's also a super way to train mental and cognitive skills to use in football!

Zero physical load

Footballers follow a strict physical training and nutrition regimen in order to stay match fit and not overstrained. Mental and cognitive training fits easily into any such strict regimen because it doesn't require you to physically exert yourself. 

Training the mind gives you a chance to stay on top of your game at all times, while still giving your body a welcome break. 

Train anywhere

Training in VR is not restricted to a training ground with a whole team, or gathering at a specific location. You can train anywhere! Even from the comfort of your own home, if you want to. 

For example, when training mental and cognitive skills with VR, you can achieve a great advantage by staying mentally fit even from your own couch. For example, when training with the Be Your Best Trainer you are placed into match scenarios from Premier League, Champions League and other leagues. The scenarios are real, and demand deliberate thinking and awareness. This gives you the opportunity to stay cognitively match ready all the time!

Better memory recall 

Did you know that learning and training through VR actually helps you remember better?

Studies have shown that VR has a positive effect on a person's learning process. Put shortly, VR has been found to give better:

  • Memory recall
    Studies found an increase in 10% greater memory recall through using VR.
  • Focus
    By immersing yourself fully and excluding outside distractions, you are able to focus more on the task at hand. 
  • More fun!
    One of the best methods of learning is through making it enjoyable - and this is exactly what you achieve through using VR. 

We know VR-training is the future of football training! Why not give it a try?
