LATE START OF ARTIST CAREER

 

The roots of acceleraze begin with classical music and Chia’s late discovered wish to become a classical artist. Born in Taiwan, he spent his childhood in Toronto, Canada and studied piano in Stuttgart. Arriving in Germany at age 17, he realized that his talent and previous training were not going to suffice to make it to the top.

 

So he began searching for alternative methods to overcome technical and psychological hurdles and developed an effective methodology for himself. His arm and hand movements on the piano became faster and more precise, yet softer even after acceleration when required.

ACCELERAZE KEY TO HIS SUCCESS

Within 4 years, he won his first major international piano competition. In 1981 he was the youngest participant to win first prize at the Sydney International Piano Competition and in 1987 he won the bronze medal at the legendary Concours Reine Elisabeth in Brussels. After numerous concerts in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and North America, Chia Chou was twice awarded the coveted "Echo Klassik", the European Grammy Award, in 2001 and 2008.

 

After being named Professor of Chamber Music at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, Austria, he has applied these methods very successfully for his students, achieving awards and highest orchestral positions for his students.

FROM MUSIC TO SPORTS

By chance, Chia was asked in 2015 by his friend Mark, a marathon runner, for a method to help increase speed. The absolutely surprising success achieved within 15 minutes inspired him to continue research and co-found acceleraze.

Since then, he has worked with world-class athletes in the fields of running, cross country skiing, tennis, discus throwing, ultra-biking (Race across America, 4-time winner) and ski jumping.

NOW AVAILABLE FOR GOLF

Juergen met Chia at one of his Acceleraze clinics for runners. Juergen is a German entrepreneur in golf fitness and nutrition with a Masters degree in Industrial Engineering and international management careers in consulting and service industries.

Juergen instantly realized, that the different golf swings with their requirements regarding rhythm, tempo and precision are the perfect match for Chia's technique and what Accelerazors could do for the golf sport. Since "before and after" are easily measured in golf, he asked Chia to join him for a test. On the spot, Chia said yes and also agreed to jointly develop Accelerazors for golf if tests came out strong.

A simple setup of 30 subjects with the guidance of PGA golf instructors was quickly organized. And to everyone's surprise the results were amazing. Juergen & Chia agreed to team up and introduce Acceleraze not in Europe, but to the US first, the most professional, open-minded and demanding golf country in the world.

 

"If we can make it here, we're gonna make it anywhere".

 

WHAT IS THE ACCELERAZE METHOD?

YEARS TO IMPROVE ONES GAME

Golf is one of the few sports where you can't muscle your way to greatness. It is hard to hit a golf ball correctly since it's mostly about precision. To achieve this precision, numerous technical aspects have to be considered in a blink of a second.

Golf instruction very often feels like an overload with technical thoughts and data. Yet, golfers play best when they don’t think technique. It can still take years to get your swing down properly until it is fully automated.

MUCH FASTER BY THINKING SOUND

Acceleraze is a unique and very powerful method to simplify and accelerate the acquisition of precise swing movement patterns.

Key to this so called “Acceleraze® methodology” is making use of the direct connection of movement and rhythm centers in the brain in a systematical way by thinking sound patterns that encode the desired movement characteristics.

The brain almost instantly translates these sound patterns without a conscious effort to improve golf swing movements, resulting in faster and/or more precise swings.

A SIMPLE ILLUSTRATION

If you think a simple sound like "POW!", your drive downswing will likely be faster and your putt longer.

Your performance is improved just by thinking these sounds without consciously thinking golf technique.

Golf turns out to be ideal for the acceleraze methodology to change the game. More than 150 of these accelerazors are now available to manipulate your swing in every direction you want.

 EFFICACY STUDY

PUT TO THE TEST

This methodology was recently tested in an independent efficacy study. 49 elite golf players participated with a golf handicap of 7 or better. The study was done at 6 US study centers, including the University of Houston. It was led by renowned American researchers including Dr. Fran Pirozzolo (mental coach and 4 times World Series winner with the New York Yankees) and Prof. Robert A. Bjork (distinguished research professor at UCLA).

STUDY DESIGN

Three golf skills were tested:

The chipping task was to carry the ball to a target 17 yards away, the putting task was a six foot putt from points all around a 360 degree arc, and the driving task was to carry the ball as far as possible.

Base lines were measured. Subjects were then instructed in the acceleraze technique. Subjects were then instructed to repeat the sounds silently while performing the task. Subjects were retested.

FINDINGS

At the conclusion of the five months study, highly significant differences were found between the way golfers of all ages performed.

Even with just using very basic accelerazors, driving distance and accuracy increased in minutes, more putts were made and chips ended closer to the hole.
