Publisher's Summary

Learn about the attitude, the mindset, and the psychology behind success in sports!
Athletes have a certain mindset. Successful athletes have become who they are because of what happens in their brains. With the right perseverance, ego (or lack of it), ability to adapt, or quickness and eagerness to learn, you can speed up the results of your performance and find more fulfilment in the process. In this book, you'll learn, among others:

The difference between a professional sports player and an ace athlete.
Ways to interact with coaches, trainers, and mentors.
Reaching your true potential by conditioning your brain to achieve success.
Overcoming weakness and ego by embracing the entire sport and its history.
Which general workouts work best and how to keep training when things get tough.
What a "false champion" is and how to avoid becoming one by not having "improper" motivational thoughts.
Physical tips to keep you healthy while improving your muscle percentage and getting in shape.
Secret ways to honing sports skills.

Easy but Powerful

Would you listen to Mind Gym again? Why?

A great book to inspire athletes in their quest for mental excellence and self confidence. A required listening for college course.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mind Gym?

If you struggle with mental blocks during or before competition this book is a must read. Great book to assist in everyday life and goal setting as well.

Any additional comments?

Excellent selection of sayings and instruction from top athletes, sports psychologists, coaches and managers. Good instruction on the mental game. As Yogi Berra said, 70% of this game is mental, and the other half physical!!!!
