Whether you are a dedicated athlete, a weekend team player or a regular member of a fitness center, you may be working hard at training your body or losing weight, but you may not be training your mind to help you attain optimal results. Issues such as motivation, physical limitations, and time management are always significant, and can sometimes hinder following through on physical goals and performance. One sports psychologist for the U.S. Olympics stated that 80 to 90 percent of an athlete’s performance is in the mind. This involves using your imagination, your thoughts, and your attitudes to create the workout experience and results that you desire. Visualization is so important to a performance, because, simply, your mind does not know the difference between imagination and reality. Therefore, when you imagine that you are going through the motions of a perfectly executed play, the neurons in your brain fire in exactly the same way as they would if you were actually performing that activity. It is believed that these movements, along with contractions in your muscles, are responsible for improving neuromuscular coordination. What if you could be more successful, lose more weight, or win more games just by mentally rehearsing your workout and your moves? Hypnotherapy utilizes visualization, guided imagery, and positive suggestions to provide motivation, support, reinforcement of success, and refinement of your physical skills. And when your mind is on board with winning attitudes and beliefs, the results from your workout increase dramatically. There are three main obstacles to reaching a fitness goal: fear, attitude problems, and physical issues. Fears may include fear of failing or being humiliated and fearing the competition. Attitude issues include a lack of confidence or motivation. And physical issues may include shortness of breath, muscle fatigue, weak knees or painful joints, muscle tension, or any pain that ultimately cuts your workout short or prevents you from beginning a workout. A Hypnotherapy Program for Peak Performance can help you reach all of your goals by stating clear objectives, overcoming your fears and obstacles to success and programming yourself for perfect results along with a winning attitude. In only 18 minutes a day, this CD can offer you the extra push to make your success seem effortless.
