micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
I bought the mi coach smart soccer ball for my son. He loves the game and loves to play. He prefers to train with the ball instead of playing video games, so this definitely gets him off the couch and makes him active outside. The ball is amazing! It actually shows real time data tracking speed, spin, trajectory, etc after each kick. My son won't stop training or playing with it. He loves the challenges included with the app. This ball is a definite must have for any soccer player. Adidas does it again, creating innovative and practical equipment and apparel. Thanks Adidas! !
I originally bought this ball for myself and within a very short space of time the technique that the ball had helped my with was transferable to any ball I would kick, it made my game play more competent and confident and meant that my processing speed was much quicker on the ball and the accuracy of what I do with it has increased dramatically. I now use the ball with my students (9-16) and the rate with which they improve with the knowledge of how to strike a ball well and the understanding of different ways of manoeuvring the ball for crossing, fading, curling and knuckling is astounding. All of the students I have worked with when asked "what do you do when you kick the ball?" reply "I run up and kick it" and the improvement in their consistency, accuracy and power comes from having a knowledge of kicking process and technique from the ball and app. They love using the ball both for the novelty of using an electric football and because it takes them from playground football to a detailed and successful kicking method. It was easy to find the app underwhelming and trivial at first but once individual aspects of kicking are changed even in the smallest of ways a very visible difference is apparent and my feelings of mild disappointment were gone. The general consensus from all that have used the ball is that it is a work of brilliance. Yes it is expensive but worth investment for both improvement as a footballer and a productive use of MANY hours working on kicking technique.
I would recommend this ball to anyone that wants to be a better shooter. I had friends and teammates from all levels try this ball out with me and I've heard great feed back from them as well. My teammates loved this ball and professional coaches recommend this ball for any level to get better and succeed in the sport. The ball helps you to become a better player. You can see your shot improve within a week. This ball is worth the price you pay for it. Best ball I've ever played with can't wait for it to come out!
I have been using the FIT Smart for several weeks now and it has exceeded my expectations. After playing with the watch for about 15 minutes I was able to get a good handle on the interface, which is very simple. It has three buttons, a multi-purpose "select/home" button and two scrolling buttons. What I really like about the watch is that it doesn't have excess features that you won't want to use. It has several useful modes (assessment, free workout, planned workout) and that's it. Simple. Syncing with your MiCoach app is done via bluetooth. The watch actually looks pretty good too. I have a black watch and wear it most places. The watch is almost entirely covered in rubber and is easy to keep clean. From the coach perspective, I have used these watches with my athletes to prescribe them workouts during their off days or when rehabbing injuries. You have to create a MiCoach profile for them, but after you do that, it is easy to have them do the assessment workout and then assign them conditioning based on their HR zones. Just an FYI it seems to work better to run the assessment test outside as opposed to on a treadmill. Regardless, you may want to run the assessment several times before using the HR zones. This will allow you to get the most out of the test.
im a lover of the adidas boost technology, this is my 3rd pair & they haven't disappointed. I run most days & wear these trainers to do so, I can't wear them for fitness classes that I teach as not enough support for movement in different directions but there made for running so that's what they're best suited for. The only down side is possibly the "sock" style, I don't find that this suits & fits every foot properly. The look & design is fabulous, I ordered the black ones & they look amazing.
The idea of a ball that coaches you through a free kick is astonishing! When I was training, to become better with free kicks, it was based on feel, trial and error. Trying to analyze precisely where the ball was struck, how much rotation and power that was applied was almost impossible. Now, with the new Adidas Smart Ball and App, players can see where the ball was exactly struck, how much rotation and power was applied and the flight path. This will help players move leaps and bounds a head, at a much faster pace. Simply put, this is phenomenal! The App is where the genius is! Taking an ample amount of data and breaking it down into simple instructions and information that can be easily translated to the general consumer. The App also has designed games for competitive fun!
I am so happy with this latest generation! I have several pairs of Adidas Boosts but my favorite has always been the first generation until these came out (The Energy Boosts 2 never felt as cushiony or comfortable to me). I had to splurge on the pre-launch and I'm so glad I did! I couldn't imagine this shoe getting any better from the first generation but the Supers have blown them out of the water as far as cushion and comfort goes - for me anyway. Thank you Adidas! I'm sure I will be buying more once they are on the market again.
I love this product. I had the "Zone" when it came out and loved the simplicity of that for training and now they have came out with a better version that easily syncs to my iphone to download all my stats for review later. The changing colors relative to your HR zones is great, as well as the overall ease of use and simplicity. I even got one for my wife and she is so not tech savy at all, and she also likes how simple and easy it is. That says a lot..... If there was one critic is that the large band is really large and I should have got the small as there is no medium I believe. Other than that love the product. Keep up the good work.
Get a half size smaller. I'm a 6, tried this in the black and white versions. Both were definitely about an inch too long of empty space lengthwise for toes. I tried the 5.5 and it was perfect. I'm not crazy about the gloss pieces on the white version, it's okay on the black. Love the big logo on the tongue. This is a cool hi-top, exactly what I was looking (just really wish they didn't use the gloss.) My right foot is a hair bigger than my left foot and often I've felt shoes were tight on me or just right. This one, definitely go HALF a size down. You can see they look too big if you get your normal size. The width is perfect. I once tried a Stella McCartney slipper, size 6 and that was literally one size too big. Love these, you should try them on first if you're at a store.
I had such a great experience with the smart ball. The touch on it was amazing. I learned a lot of new ways to strike the ball and where to hit it which will help me in my professional career as a soccer player. I also learned new things about how hard I kick it, how fast the ball travels, and the rotation on the ball which I didn't think it was possible. I definitely will recommend this product to players young and experienced, and coaches.
These shoes are absolutely fantastic and better than anything I have worn previously. I was slightly worried about the size and as has been previously stated they are slightly (and only very slightly) narrow. The thing is that it doesn't really matter because of the flexibility of the top part of the shoe. It's like wearing a really flexible sock and it moulds to the shape of your foot. I trialled them on a 7 mile run and the cherry on an already delicious cake is the sole. They are springy and bouncy and they provide strength on the hills and comfort on the flats. I cannot recommend them enough!
This was purchased as a birthday present for my 14 year old son. It wasn't on his birthday list so was a gamble.....however, it was fantastic, his face was a picture as this is one of the latest in gadgets (unbeknown to me). In his words it was "the best present EVER". It was extremely easy to set up and link to his I-phone. The delivery was very speedy and was packaged well, so no signs that this was a football. I now have a garden full of teenagers or should I say budding world champion footballers!!
This is a great product. I thoroughly enjoyed using it, and kicking it around with my friends. I think one of its best parts is that you aren't forced to use it as an advanced computer chip ball if you don't want to. It's perfectly functional as a normal ball without the gadgets. However with that being said the phone app is great, and with all the self-improvement features that it has it can be very helpful. It is well designed and is simple to use, not to mention great fun.
This is my 4th pair of boost sneakers. I have worn out 2 pairs of Energy Boosts( 1 and 2) and have one in my closet, still in the box. I bought the Ultras when they were offered at introduction a couple of weeks ago. I have worn them to work out in and run in at the gym. The extra "boost" is nice, but the overall shoe is somewhat larger than the Energy Boost 1 and 2. I like the original fit better. Glad I have an new pair of the "old" design in my closet! I hope Adidas brings back the Boost 2's in more colors and sizes.
These are my very first Adidas shoes! I wanted a pair so badly for Christmas but they every time I went on internet they were sold out. Finally I got to buy it and I am so happy that a found my size (7) available. I wore them y I cant take it off they are absolutely amazing, very comfortable, and goes with everything! I'm glad that I have them and definitely going to buy more because they are amazing. PS. My husband was right about how amazing they are.
