Even though athletes report that during competition their mental attitudes account for 80% or more of their success, few training programs systematically train athletes to control this mental asset. That’s what sets us apart. Mind Potential Northwest’s Performance Training program will teach you how to access an optimal state of physical and mental presence. This awareness allows you to take into consideration & adjust accordingly to internal factors such as heart rate, breathing, mental state, & physical state, and external variables like noise, weather, & distractions. Each of these may compromise your performance if appropriate adjustments and compensations are not made. We help you learn to do that for yourself.
The vast majority of athletes that participate in our Performance Training programs mention the most noticeable change after undergoing a few sessions is improved quality of sleep. This is of course very important, as sleep quality is linked to muscle repair, improved motor functions, reaction time and overall recovery, enabling athletes to train and play at a high level day in and day out. Research has shown that individuals who do not obtain quality sleep are not able to recover well and continue to have brainwave patterns during the day that negatively affect their ability to focus and concentrate. Along with improving overall recovery and ability to focus, slow wave sleep patterns increase human growth hormone, which is a primary driver for muscle mass formation which translates to strength and endurance, and underlies the repair of damaged muscle tissue.
Athletes wouldn’t consider entering a competition without physically training and conditioning, in preparation for the event. Now, with Mind Potential Northwest’s Performance Training, using the technology of EEG Biofeedback (a brain wave training technique), athletes can also strengthen and condition their mind, maximizing the potential of their most valuable asset. If you want to be the best athlete you can be, you must do exercises to condition and sharpen your sensory system, as well as your physical body.
