"90 PERCENT OF BASEBALL IS MENTAL, THE OTHER HALF IS PHYSICAL" Yogi Berra.
What Yogi said is true for all sports. Training. Practice. It's all about getting ready for your event, getting ready to perform at your best. Most serious athletes spend huge amounts of time systematically preparing their body with little or no time spent systematically preparing their mind. Yet after all the effort and sweat of training is done, it is the athlete that has mastered the mental game who comes out on top.
You want your practice and training to be driven by desire and commitment, to have the will to prepare to win. You want your self-discipline to work automatically, so your workouts and practice sessions just seem to flow as an integral part of your life, like brushing your teeth.
You want to go into your event with that winning feeling, relaxed yet energized, with a sense of anticipation and excitement that makes you eager to compete.
In the heat of competition you want your body to perform flawlessly, in the zone, your movements flowing automatically and effortlessly, giving you a peak performance.
If you are a serious recreational, amateur, or professional athlete I invite you to call me for a NO RISK session to find out how I can help you get what you really want out of your sport.
