Today, in the bowels of the FNC, in the Buffalo Sabres’ workout room, Jhonas Enroth presented a new smart phone app to a handful of Williamsville East hockey players. The new App is called FLOW Competitive Sports. It is a training app marketed by Ultimate Performance. The app is made by the company Simpliflow. Simpliflow is a company dedicated to the creatition of innovative and automated sports and healthcare systems.
The app is “a training and fitness app designed to meet the demands of a performance athlete. It acts as a portable personal trainer that allows performance athletes to train year-round, anywhere and anytime.” The app is designed to draw up your very own, personalized training programs based on intensive fitness tests. By determining your strengths and weaknesses, a customized plan is created with detailed workouts, showing detailed information about the effects of each workout and tracks your performance and results which can be shared worldwide with friends.
Current professional athletes using the program include Buffalo Sabres Goaltender Jhonas Enroth, Ave’s forward Gabriel Landeskog, Tampa defenseman Victor Hedman, Blues Center Partik Berglund and New Jersey Devil’s prospect Jacob Josefson. These players are partners with Ultimate Performance and market the program through their usage.
Following the demonstration, I met with Enroth to ask a few questions about the app and the NHL:
- Jhonas, tell us about the app:
I was introduced to the trainer by my agent in Sweden. Its a personal trainer app that you can download to your smart phone. I’ve been using it for a little while and I really like it, so hopefully I will stay healthy all year.
- Is the highschool trying to adapt the program?
Yea, we are trying to promote it here in Buffalo. They were just in Colorado trying to promote it there with Landeskog and they will be in Tampa next.
- Whats the jist of this program?
It’s 100% customized workout schedule for professional athletes and you can follow other professional athletes to see their progress.
- How widespread is the app? Is it all across the NHL or are you still trying to get the name out there?
We are still trying to get it out there. There’s only about five or six guys right now.
- Have you introduced it to any of the other Sabres?
I have not. I’ve just been talking a little bit about it, I haven’t really talked to them about it.
- Is this app available now?
It is available now, and it should cost about $10-20. But it’s good to have.
- What’s the atmosphere like right now on the “NHL Scene”?
Well, obviously we are a little worried. We obviously don’t know what’s going to happen. We just hope they will figure something out today or tomorrow, or whenever the meetings are. Me, personally, I’m a lot worried.
- If there is a lockout, will you return to Sweden to play?
I don’t know. I haven’t really thought about it yet. If it is a lockout, I will deal with it then.
The Flow Competitive Sports app is now available for Iphone and Ipad through the Itunes App Store and will soon be available for Android phones through the Android Market. The app costs either $10 or $20 depending on the version you get. Although it is expensive, it is worth it because it is extremely innovative in terms of both sports science and technology and is unlike anything on the current market.
Personally, if I was still rowing, I would probably get this app for myself. It seems like a great program and worth the price.
