Brian Clarke – Full Testimonial

We asked Brian a number of questions about his experience with Metrifit Check out Brian’s video testimonial to hear him in person. What initially sparked your interest in Metrifit? As an educator and coach it is my responsibility to provide and foster 21st Century Skills to my students. There has been a worldwide “shift” in how society learns, interacts, and what they view as valuable. We are in a digital age and in order to engage, empower, and inspire my students I needed a program that would provide these opportunities. [read more="Read More" less="Read Less"] What are a few of the features within Metrifit that you value or have found to be the most impactful for your student-athletes? Without a doubt the RTT number, the readiness to train.Our students and especially our Coaches view these numbers before the school day begins. It has enabled conversations and relationships between students and coaches that never would have taken place without the Metrifit program. It provides a voice for the quiet student and a way to “reach out” for our coaches and students as well. Secondly I’d look at ownership. That’s a big thing we do here at Noblesville High School. We’re not just looking for buy-in – we are looking for ownership. The Metrifit program provides an opportunity for ownership. Both the students and coaches equally share in the athlete/team development process. Lastly and probably most importantly in all honesty relationships. Our coaches through Metrifit basically have an ‘X-ray’ vision into the habits and lifestyles and stressors their athletes have on a day to day basis, especially when they are not together. Thus the professional authentic relationships created through the casual conversations, reflection process and application provided is priceless. How has Metrifit impacted the “culture” at Noblesville High School? There are 3 aspects to Metrifit that have really enhanced the overall culture 1. The positive engagement 2. Personal Team Ownership and lastly 3. The higher overall commitment to health and lifestyle The amount of authentic conversations and learning regarding sleep and nutrition alone have proved immeasurable to our coaches and students alike. In addition Metrifit offers your shy and meek students a voice they normally would not have the courage to have. I was able to identify some severe mental health concerns in 2 students this past year based off consistent low RTT – your readiness to train scores. And then the authentic conversation that came along with that student. It was literally a potential life saver. We were able to connect the student with the right counselor, with the right guidance and at the end you need to go with Metrifit because its more than just your innovative athletic monitoring system. It’s really a system that engages all students and people to levels that you wouldn’t even think really existed. Who or what groups should use Metrifit? You know initially I thought that this would be directed at student-athletes only. After only 1 semester it was obvious that all students would benefit from an innovative monitoring program such as Metrifit. This is great for coaches but for parents and your general classroom teacher as well this is very powerful. The readiness to train or RTT number gives you a lot of information not just about their sleep, nutrition – but also how they are feeling today, if they’re sore, if they’re stressed, their overall academic preparedness. That’s valuable when you’re in an English classroom, that’s valuable in a Maths classroom. To have that information ahead of time so that when a student comes to you, or in a parent’s role when you look at your child that you love like no other and there are issues going on – you can have that information ahead of time as a speaking point. And maybe it just serves as that catalyst to develop that relationship further. So once again this has been great from the athletics side of it, but from a parents side and then from a holistic school approach – this program is for everybody. If you are a coach, athletic director, or administrator that is looking to further strengthen your relationships with your athletes, bring your program into the 21st Century digital age, provide your program a innovative athletic monitoring system, and separate yourself from your competition then Metrifit is for you![/read]
