March 30, 2010 - PRLog -- Mental training is being increasingly recognized as an integral component of athletes’ training. Relying solely on skills and craftsmanship has become inadequate in the field of competitive sports, where athletes are continually exposed to external pressures and anxiety. Sport psychology essentially pertains to understanding:

• what motivates athletes
• how to enable athletes to regulate their thoughts accordingly

With such mental training exercises, sports psychology helps to:

• manage stress and arousal states
• optimize performance levels

Gary Ward, the baseball coach at Oklahoma State University, has consistently advocated the significance of mental training in sports performance. He states that “mental and technical training gives the players an opportunity to establish a consistent, peak performance every time they step on the field."

Sports Psychology for Peak Performance: How to Get Started

The mind-body connection has immense power. It can make or break an athlete’s performance. Peak performance is achieved when mental training is effective. Getting started is always slightly difficult because you feel uncertain when you begin any new endeavor. With sports hypnosis, you will:

• Overcome the fear of failure.
• Gain confidence.
• Improve motivation.
• Increased stamina.
• Analyze the best performance.
• Learn to block emotional and physical distractions.
• Develop routines to be ‘in the zone’ before a game to maintain focus and block distractions.
