Often times an athlete may experience limitations around open water swimming, high-intensity sets, hilly bike courses, adverse weather or pre-race nervousness. Others may aspire to greater accomplishments, such as personal records, podium spots and qualifying race results (okay, let’s say it — Kona!), and find themselves missing an edge to get them there. Finding the tenacity to go really hard in a race or training session can be elusive and an athlete may find “something missing” when going at that top effort. Recovering from an upset: a bad race, getting jostled or running out of air in the swim, or a bad bike crash may require some adjustments in your thinking. These are just a few examples of where your thoughts vs. your physical training may be holding you back from your full potential as an athlete.
Bringing it all together during competition can be a challenge and the goal of a Performance Mental Skills Session is to help you engage your mind and move it toward your full potential as an athlete
. Every athlete is unique and as such, sessions are tailored to individual goals. You can expect to go through a process that helps to identify what you would like to achieve and address the specific issues using a variety of effective, simple, fast, durable and instantly verifiable techniques, so you can find relief from the things that hold you back, and gain momentum toward your goals. Fortunately, feelings of apprehension, tension, nerves or anxiety readily yield to these quick techniques, some of them taking only 10 seconds.
With a Performance Mental Skills Session, athletes are typically on their way, and incorporating their new gains within 1-3 sessions. Each session is $60.
