Feb. 14, 2014 - PRLog -- Mario Lemieux's father described his young son this way; “When Mario was seven or eight I could see that he was much better than other kids his age, he seemed to take to the game naturally.”

Larry Bird said of his youth; “Growing up, kids my age were having difficulty with relatively simple moves and that's when things started to click for me.” The way Bird describes the moves, “relatively simple,” says a lot. These moves are relatively simple when you move like Larry Bird.

The common thread connecting these two young prodigies is “balanced motion.” A balanced athlete will quickly pick up moves that others struggle to master. Why? They put their bodies in a favorable position to perform. Lemieux played the game on its simplest terms, he kept himself balanced. It’s been said that Larry Bird didn't have a hole in his game. Well, there was no hole in his motion either. These athletes literally played the game in a different way – “the balanced way” – the easy way.

These stars aren't playing the same game everyone else is. Their skills flow naturally because their balanced motion makes everything easier. There are few people who move with balance at all times. Since the vast majority cannot, they have trouble understanding the benefits of balance. They marvel at the accomplishments of these athletes. To them it’s like magic. But there is a science behind the magic.

About the Author:
Joseph Eilefson is the author and originator of Art of Motion. His innovative training changes the way athletes move and improves their play dramatically. Joe noticed a similarity in the way Larry Bird and Wayne Gretzky moved. After studying their movements on videotape - frame by frame - Joe could see that these athletes were “never falling.” Their steady state of balance gave them the vision, power and timing needed to make plays others couldn’t. Soon Joe recognized the most common movements where athletes lost their balance and why.

Art of Motion contains 39 photographs featuring Joe Montana, Larry Bird, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Bobby Orr. These still photographs, from videotape, capture these athletes at just the right angle to illustrate where their vision, power and timing comes from.
