MSNP™ Training Methodology
The MSNP™ – Multi-Sensory NeuroPlasticity – training methodology is at the core of ROXs Pro's experience.
The MSNP™ training methodology is behind all ROXs Pro Programs and is the key to making ROXs Pro a game-changing tool for any Sports, Fitness and Physical Health professional.
The traditional way of training is to repeat physical training drills and get certain results. The new way to train based on the MSNP™ training methodology integrates physical training to get higher performance and better results.
ROXs Pro’s MSNP™ training methodology is an unique combination of multi-sensory stimulation, gamified elements and randomized variations. This combination exposes the athlete to new training impulses and thus enables the preconditions for neuroplasticity.
Multi-sensory stimulation refers to the concept that the more senses are stimulated during an activity, the more effective the perceptual learning will be.
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to form and reform neural networks. Every repetition reinforces a neural pathway. These small changes, repeated frequently enough, lead to changes in the way the brain works, changing its structure as we experience, learn, and adapt. This is fundamental for the development of specific cognitive-motor skills and inner motivation.
With ROXs Pro’s MSNP™ training new resources are added to a natural physical training, improving results and performance:
1. Cognitive-motor skills
Multi-sensory stimulation develops specific cognitive-motor skills that lead to better results in the gym or higher performance on the field.
Smarter is the new stronger
Physical abilities are improved by physical training. However, it has been a challenge for coaches and trainers to additionally improve mental skills.
Modern sports science underlines that physical training with demanding visual, auditory and cognitive stimulation develops and improves sensory perception in athletes. This leads to a quicker brain processing and more accurate motor responses.
ROXs Pro’s unique multi-sensory stimulation directly affects the development of specific cognitive-motor skills and enhances the effectiveness of the training sessions.
Immediate performance feedback via the ROXs Pro App is the base for a gamified training experience. Athletes, clients and patients will work harder and with more motivation as they now can compete with each other and/or themselves.
Working out has never been so much fun.
Enjoyment is a crucial factor during training to improve not only the performance of athletes but also any significant learning process. ROXs Pro’s gamified elements boost inner motivation with challenges and competitions.
It makes any training more enjoyable which keeps the attention focused on the training and gets everybody to train harder and more frequently while the results get better.
Random variation of the lights and signals bring unlimited and unpredictable possibilities to every training, demanding complete focus on the exercise.
Creating real life contexts and game scenarios
A more effective and enjoyable physical training must include variation, instead of simple repetition of the same motion over and over again.
Though it is indispensable to repeat drills, pro-athletes reach their status through diversification and exploration. Multi-sensory stimulation combined with gamified elements and random variation during ROXs Pro training delivers beneficial unpredictability. This creates unlimited training circumstances that reflect real life contexts and real-game situations.
The MSNP™ training methodology leads to increased performance and results on the field and in the gym.
Body & Brain Training
Within the MSNP™ training methodology, 8 target areas of cognitive-motor development have been identified, which – depending on the use scenario – impact an athletes' or clients' performance on the field or in the gym.
The 8 target areas can be further fragmented into 16 specific key-points of improvement that can be targeted with the MSNP™ training methodology.
The MSNP™ training methodology applies to all sport specific training through the ROXs Pro 8+ Programs.
When preparing drills for a specific sport or use case according to the MSNP™ training methodology, sport-specific requirements on the 8 different target areas of cognitive-motor development are analyzed and a requirement profile is developed. This requirement profile provides insights on which practical training areas to focus on.
To make better players each sport has specific areas that should be improved. ROXs Pro provides sports-specific training Programs that:
- Assess the relevant performance to allow objective pre-/post-test;
- Train relevant abilities in a specific way.
