With over 160 centers nationwide, Athletic Republic has helped nearly one million athletes reach their performance potential by applying innovative techniques developed through decades of sports-science research. Designed to improve the ability to visually track moving objects, the Nike Vapor Strobe may grace athletic eyes with enhanced peripheral vision, reduced reaction time, and the ability to fast-forward through time-outs. During training, classes of up to six trainees practice their sport while wearing specially designed glasses that inhibit vision with rapidly blinking strobe lights. Wearers gradually adapt to the limited vision so that, when their full vision is restored, they can more effectively process visual information without undergoing the costly third-eye implants of traditional vision-enhancement programs. Classes run every weekday at 4:00 p.m., 5:30 p.m., and 7:00 p.m. Though trainees may reserve their classes at any time, Athletic Republic recommends that trainees maximize the program’s benefits by completing the six courses within three weeks.
