When you face a challenge in sport, it is filtered through your values and beliefs, and there is a reaction at the cognitive, physiological, and behavioral levels. Depending on how you respond to the challenge, it will lead to poor or good performances.
Defeated athletes will have a little voice inside their heads questioning their abilities, the muscles become too tense, which will lead to poor execution of motor skills, and their physical image already displays dejection. Top athletes believe they can do it, their bodies are prepared and relaxed, and they project a fighting body image.
So, to help you improve your performance, I investigate how you respond often. And I train your new responses at the three levels; thinking habits (mental), physiological responses (biofeedback to become aware of your physiological reactions and training the new responses), and behavioral (training your actions). And when you learn to manage your responses to adversities, you are able to show your true athletic potential.
If you want to learn to respond optimally to whatever the competition brings you, schedule a free consultation. You can also answer to the survey questions to receive a specific answer to the main concerns of most athletes. https://athleticmentaltraining.com/
