USA Hockey - IntelliGym Review

USA Hockey - IntelliGym Review Every player experiences highs and lows, hills and valleys, slumps and hot streaks. I’m not a goal scorer, but even as a “stay at home” D-man I still need to be able to move the puck up to our forwards quickly and efficiently. Sometimes slumps are not the result of lack of on ice practice or conditioning, but how you aree approaching the game. A couple of bad games can get your head and cause you to tense up. When you tense up, your reaction time slows down. The IntelliGym is all about improving your on ice perception and reaction time.

While nursing some injuries, I took some time off from the IntelliGym. Once I started playing again, i was out of the habit of training regularly. Lately I’ve been having trouble making smart plays, so I started using the IntelliGym again. Within 2-3 sessions, I noticed I was more quickly able to find an open forward to hand the puck. It almost feels like the game slows down around you, and you have more time to make your move. I’m even sneaking into scoring zones once or twice a game and getting some chances to put the puck in the net. Two years in, and I still notice benefits when I use the product.

USA Hockey – The Hockey IntelliGym: UPDATE 1.5 YEARS LATER

Intelligym

IntelligymA year and a half in, and still going strong! I still enjoy using the Intelligym, and do notice subtle differences in my game when I’m using it regularly. The big thing I’m working on now is staying calm. If I’m wound up during one of my sessions (or on the ice), I rush and make more mistakes than usual. When I’m calm, it’s much easier to be patient and take that extra second you (sometimes) need to make a play. Right now’s a great time for me to work on my confidence and patience, since we’re just playing summer hockey. Looking forward to seeing how it affects my game in another couple of months when regular season starts. Thanks again Intelligym!

The Juppy – Update

The Juppy

I was at the park the other day with my kids.  I had the Baby J in the Juppy and had quite a few people come over and ask me about it, so I thought I’d just post a quick little update on it.

I was given the Juppy for a product review earlier this year.  I still love it!  As my son grows it still continues to fit him quite comfortably.  He loves to be able to waddle around after his big sister!  I love that I don’t have to bend over to grab his arms to help him walk.

The Juppy is a light-weight portable hand-held baby walker.  It fits easily into my diaper bag (or purse).  I do wish that it had little pads for my hands.  As I sit here, I’m thinking that I could use my City Grips stroller handlebar covers.  I will have to test that out tomorrow!

One of my favourite things about it is how slim that it is. Although it isn’t recommended by the company,   I don’t have  to remove it to put my son in his stroller or the baby swings at the park.  I simply secure the straps in the back so that he doesn’t get tangled up in them.

Here is a quick little video of us trying to walk the little guy with and without the Juppy! I really would recommend it to anyone with a little one learning to walk.
