Sprinting to Success: Athletes - How Mental Training Can Take Your Track & Field Performance to the Next Level

Give Your Results a Fuel Injection

Athletes around the world are always searching for ways to improve - fast, and get the edge over their opponents...

Do Pressure, Nerves, Intimidation, Doubt, Fear or Negative Thoughts Affect Your Track and Field?

Or Just Looking To Massively Improve Performance?

Mental training not only strengthens performance but also overcomes barriers which may have been holding you back. I know because I have worked with them over the course of 25 years.

When two or more athletes of equal physical strength and ability compete against each other, it's always decided by who is the toughest mentally.

This is why mental training gives you the edge over most of your competitors - who only train physically. And as you can see, these methods are used at the very highest levels...

Champions Use Mental Training

• Usain Bolt - the Jamaican sprinter who holds the world record in both the 100m and 200m events, and known for his relaxed and confident mindset on the track. Bolt has spoken about his use of visualization techniques to help him prepare mentally for races.

• Carl Lewis - the American sprinter and long jumper, who won nine Olympic gold medals over the course of his career, was known for his mental toughness and ability to stay focused under pressure, and used positive self-talk to help him stay confident and motivated.

• Allyson Felix - the American sprinter, who has won nine Olympic medals and multiple world championships, used mindfulness meditation to help her stay focused and calm during races.

• Mo Farah - the British distance runner, who has won multiple Olympic and world championship medals, used visualization techniques to help him stay motivated and focused during long races.

• Ashton Eaton - the American decathlete, who won two Olympic gold medals and set multiple world records, used mental imagery and visualization techniques to help him prepare for competition.

As a mental trainer, for the past few decades I worked with a vast number of athletes, teams and coaches from various track and field events around the world.

This included runners (sprint, middle and long distance), jump events such as high jump and triple jump, and throwing events such as javelin, discuss and shot put.

My job was to boost their competition performances, FAST - and overcome various issues, slumps in form, and other challenges they encounter.

To do this, I created various types of customized 'visualisation' recordings which guided them mental rehearsals of their performances, while in the optimum mental state - including powerful hypnotic suggestions for their subconscious to absorb, while in this higher-awareness state.

Without exception (and often to their complete amazement), their performances improved dramatically after they used these recordings.

Mental training methods have been proven around the globe to take athletes to their absolute peak performance levels, and it is one of the biggest changes to sport around the world this century.

This is because your subconscious mind is the control center of your body's movement - and your track and field performances.

Your subconscious co-ordinates all your bodily movement, reactions, reflexes, muscle memory, as well as the functioning of all your vital organs. It is an awesomely powerful 'control panel' waiting for your instructions - and if you dont program your mind for success, it will just as easily bring about self-sabotage.

One of the most powerful ways of programming the mind is using visualisation - often called imagery or mental rehearsal.

This world-renowned technique is where you relax your mind and vividly imagine performing at the absolute pinnacle of your ability on the day.

When used correctly at regular daily intervals, this process massively influences track and field performances, from the inside out.

Probably one of the most desirable aspects of this technique is how easily you can customize it to your next performance, or to focus upon any skill, or area of performance you desire.
