Happy Friday Update – Rocket Science

Happy Friday Update

It really is rocket science!

They say it’s not rocket science, but it really is…

Our balance board exercises were developed by Dr. Frank Belgau in the 1960s based around a discovery by NASA:

NASA stated:

“When your body is not in balance your mind cannot work effectively.” 

Tim (age 7) delighted us with his rocket story in pictures so we thought we’d share the science behind the programme.  Tim’s Mum sent us this message 12 weeks into the programme.  The family have recently relocated to England and are working with us via WhatsApp video. 

Some improvements we are noticing: Eye tracking is getting much easier for Tim.  Ball catching is improving. In general he has moments when he responds better when we call him and we are seeing some moments of real clarity whereas before he would have been very unaware of situations around him.”

Tim’s Mum continued:

“He wrote his first letter to his little cousin a week ago.  Tim was so focused and determined to finish.  He drew this sequence of a rocket launch story at school aftercare the other day, which was amazing.  He has never been able to draw and stay so focused , never-mind draw a whole picture story on 6 pages!

We have changed Tim’s real name to protect his privacy.

Performance Breakthrough is an innovative and effective approach to helping many fundamental skills in education and sport.  Our balance and co-ordination exercises enable you to unlock your full potential, naturally.

If your body is not in balance, your mind doesn’t work to it’s full potential.  We have been helping children to improve in school for almost 10 years and have found that each child enhanced their ability in sport.  

We are therefore delighted to be breaking into the sporting field to help sports people unlock their potential too.

Our education programme consists of: –

  • Free evaluation assessment
  • Balance & co-ordination exercises
  • Maximum 15 minutes per day/5 days per week
  • Interactive and fun activities
  • 12 months of one to one support included
