Answer this simple question:squash-FirmBee

If we were sitting down one year from today and you were looking back over that year, what has to have happened in your performance for you to feel really happy with your progress?

The Going In The Zone Program is for you if your answers include any of the following:

  • I was more consistent
  • I competed with confidence and self-belief
  • I was completely committed
  • I was highly motivated to train and follow the nutrition plan
  • I had incredible focus
  • I felt in control of emotions and anxiety levels
  • I achieved the goals I set out

If athletes believe that being mentally prepared for competition will help them achieve the results they want then why is that only the top performers seem to use a mental fitness trainer?

I feel there are two reasons:

Reason One: Athletes buy into the myth that you first must develop “perfect” technique or knowledge about your sport before you can work on the so-called mental game. But, I believe, you cannot separate the mental from the physical when it comes to motor skills.

Decisions, thoughts, images, and feelings set up each action you take

The techniques and skills you will discover on this course will help you develop confidence and concentration as you master the technical and physical aspects of your game.

Reason Two: Some athletes confuse sports psychology techniques with psychiatry and think there has to be an issue before you seek advice.

This is why I talk about “going in the zone” as a form of mental fitness coaching. It is a set of skills you can use to improve performance. Its coaching for the mind and it really is for athletes who want to improve upon their current performance and take their game to the next level with the help of a mental fitness coach like myself.
