Sports bring on an entire new set of challenges.
- We are familiar with the physical work required to be strong, fast, and flexible. We understand why we must condition, run, and stretch. Even when our muscles hurt, we are tired, or we don't think we can push our bodies any further, we do anyway.
- Yet many athletes don't spend enough time preparing for the mental side of sports. There comes a time when we are 100% physically prepared, but inside we may doubt ourselves, have fears, or focus on ideas that are not helpful.
- Many times we don't seek mental training until we need it; we may be over anxious, have mental blocks, or choke under pressure and mental training can help us retrain our minds to get back on track.
- Mental training can also be used to get an edge on the competition and bring training to a new level. When you are 100% physically prepared, mental training can help you be 100% mentally prepared.
When the body and the mind are trained properly, the athlete is unstoppable!
