Sports Toughness Training
How’d you like to get a little tougher?
Well, you’re in luck.
We have Jim Loehr—one of the world’s leading sports psychologists who has worked with some of the world’s leading athletes—as our guide. He says, …
“Toughness training is the art and science of increasing your ability to handle all kinds of stress—physical, mental, and emotional—so that you’ll be a more effective competitor. It’s a highly sophisticated and thoroughly proven method of perfecting your sport skills while minimizing the risk of physical injuries and emotional setbacks that so often attend overtraining.
What does toughness training toughen?
Your mind, body, and emotions will become more flexible, responsive, resilient, and stronger—the real meaning of tough as used here—through Toughness Training.”
What happens to super-competitors like Michael Jordan, Chris Evert, Wayne Gretzky, and Jimmy Connors? Do you think they always show up for the game feeling motivated, excited, eager, and confident?
If you’re not sure of the answer, let me give it to you. The super-competitors are just like you and me—they get tired, burned out, sick, and sore just like everybody else.
So how do they do it? How do they mobilize their Performance Selves and bring to life the emotions that empower them? By what miraculous means do great competitors transform fear into confidence, tiredness into energy, boredom into fun?
Here’s how: they learn exceptional performer skills.
