REFLEXION, LEADER IN COGNITIVE SPORTS TRAINING, ADDS THE IRONMAN OF INDYCAR, TONY KANAAN, TO ADVISORY BOARD
You Have to Train Your Eyes. Your Eyes are Not Different than Your Triceps, Your Biceps, or Your Legs.” – Kanaan
LANCASTER, PENN. (Apr. 14, 2021) — Reflexion, the cognitive sports training service that “rewires” the brain to improve athletic performance, today announced that Tony Kanaan, one of INDYCAR racing’s greatest, will be joining the company’s Advisory Board to accelerate the adoption of cognitive sports training in racing and beyond.
“Visual skills, especially for a racecar driver, are so important. When you’re in an oval, going 240 mph, and something happens in front of you, you have to be prepared” said Kanaan. “Not to react to what is happening 100 feet from you, but what is happening 500 feet from you while you are anticipating what will happen around you. I am excited to join Reflexion because I have been driving Indy cars for the past 25 years and since I was introduced to Reflexion, I have to say I became a better driver.”
Kanaan was first introduced to Reflexion’s cognitive sports training platform, that combines a state-of-the-art touchscreen lightboard powered and cloud-based data analytics, at PitFit Training in Indianapolis, IN. “Reflexion decreases mistakes and improves visual data processing skills that reduce our drivers’ chance for injury while boosting performance in the car” said Jim Leo, Founder and President of PitFit Training.
Working as part of Reflexion’s Advisory Board, Kanaan will educate athletes of all levels how to incorporate cognitive training into their overall training regimens and will share his own experiences of the successes that he has seen by doing so. This addition is part of a larger effort to make cognitive sports training that has traditionally been employed only by elite athletes much more accessible.
“Reflexion is catalyzing a sea change to bring cognitive sports training to athletes of all levels and we are incredibly privileged to work with some of the world’s greatest competitors like Tony to deliver a world-class experience to athletes at every level” said Reflexion CEO, Matt Campagna. “Additions to our team like this one are a key factor in what sets Reflexion apart from the pack.”

Using a state-of-the-art touchscreen lightboard powered by cloud-based technology and data analytics, Reflexion accelerates and strengthens cognitive processes and skills such as peripheral vision, decision making, reaction time and hand-eye coordination.
