Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 Even among the most elite performers, certain athletes stand out as a cut above the rest, able to outperform in clutch, game-deciding moments. These athletes prove that raw athletic ability doesnt necessarily translate to a superior on-field experienceits the mental game that matters most.Sports participation—from the recreational to the collegiate Division I level—is at an all-time high. While the caliber of their games may differ, athletes at every level have one thing in common: the desire to excel. In The Champions Mind, sports psychologist Jim Afremow, PhD, offers the same advice he uses with Olympians, Heisman Trophy winners, and professional athletes, including:
  • How to get in a “zone,” thrive on a team, and stay humble
  • How to progress within a sport and sustain long-term excellence
  • Customizable pre-performance routines to hit full power when the gun goes off or the puck is dropped
The Champions Mind distills actionable advice into clear and concise steps for athletes looking to develop confidence, concentration, and mental preparedness—the edge that sets champions apart.
