“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.
Shingo Imara™ builds strength in the neck and the surrounding musculature of the upper back, chest and shoulders. Younger athletes are disproportionately weak in supporting their head because their heads grow faster than their neck and body. Assisting the development of these muscle groups logically decreases the risk of head injury while improving overall body control.
Shingo Imara™’s effective neck strengthening exercises can be done in 7-15 minutes per session - 2 to 3 session a week. They can be performed while on the practice-field-sideline or while watching TV at home. No weight room is required. These exercises are easy to learn and quick to perform. An informed coach, parent, AT, PT or medical professional should oversee adherence to the directions, but Shingo Imara™ exercises can be done independently. Start slowly as many of the small muscles of the neck are not accustom to these new stresses and movement patterns.
Shingo Imara™ was designed to lower risk of concussion. It 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 n and elite strength and conditioning coaches. Concussion research is evolving and we are watching it closely to enhance our products and information. Our approach is to bolster the body's natural defense against head trauma. The gained strength and body control also gives athletes the ability to perform at their best throughout practice and competition.
Concussion is a dark cloud passing over sports today. It 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. Ask around. You probably know someone who has been concussed. A "proactive" solution to what the CDC in Atlanta has declared a "concussion epidemic" is needed. Shingo Imara™ is a "silver lining".
Concussion can be a serious and potentially long lasting issue. Concussion is a "hidden" injury to the brain. You can't see a concussion - and you can't go in and fix it like a torn ACL. Until recently, concussions were "shaken off" and "taken for the team", but that culture is changing. Concussion is no longer defined by "being knocked out". Concussion is any abnormal brain function due to impact and it is primarily diagnosed by symptoms. The impact does not have to be to your head. Body-to-body and body-to-ground impact can cause a whiplash effect that results in concussion. Learn the symptoms and the up-to-date protocols for treating them. Don't ignore the national news about concussion, but don't let it alarm you to the point of non-participation. Educate yourself about concussion risks, symptoms, Second Impact Syndrome and return-to-play guidlines. You only get one brain - keep it safe and healthy.
Be proactive. Order Shingo Imara™ today!

I believe the Shingo Imara™ will be a helpful part of the concussion solution because it is easy to use and portable. Sometimes we look for complex solutions, Shingo Imara is simple and actionable. You can't go wrong with it.
