“Shingo Imara” means “Strong Neck” in Swahili.
At Lane Gainer Sports – the Shingo Imara™ brand is a tool kit and protocol for developing neck strength as a means to stabilizing the head.
Shingo Imara™‘s approach for addressing the concussion issue is ahead of the curve and unique in the national market. Safer youth sport is our mission.
Concussion is a dark cloud passing over sports today. Concussion is any abnormal brain function due to impact and it is primarily diagnosed by symptoms. Concussion is NOT just a football problem –
Concussions affect many sports including: Cheer, Soccer, Hockey, Wrestling, Lacrosse, Rugby, Volleyball, Basketball, Baseball, Softball, Field Hockey, Skiing, Snowboarding, Gymnastics, Bobsled, Mountain Biking, Skateboarding, and many more plus Military service.
Shingo Imara™ is a “silver lining” to what the CDC in Atlanta has declared a “concussion epidemic”.
Shingo Imara™ reduces the risk of concussion by building strength in the neck and the surrounding musculature of the upper back, chest and shoulders. Shingo Imara™ is based on peer-reviewed research and data collected at major US universities (Ohio State, Columbia, Stanford, Virginia Tech – we can direct you to that research) and approved by world-renowned neurosurgeons and elite strength and conditioning coaches. Our approach is to bolster the body’s natural defense against head trauma.
Younger athletes are disproportionately weak in supporting their head because their heads grow faster than their neck and body. (see pic chart) Assisting the development of these muscle groups logically decreases the risk of head injury while improving overall body control allowing athletes to perform at their best throughout practice and competition.
Using Shingo Imara is Easy
- Effective neck strengthening exercises can be done in 7-15 minutes per session – 2 to 3 sessions a week.
