Learn how to get in the Zone

A technique used by Olympians focusing on control, concentration, self talk, and imagery

The “Zone” theory is the guiding principle behind Mental Prep for Swim Racing. It’s based on a routine that prepares you for meets by anticipating challenges, developing an action plan and rehearsing the plan so that it’s ready for you whenever you need it. 

Concentration & self talk

Overcome distractions, self-doubt, and fatigue that undermine your performance.

Imagery & visualization

Prepare yourself in advance for the critical moments that precede the start of your events.

Intensity control

Regulate the intensity of your breathing and focus both pre-race and in the water.

“Perfectly structured for in-season preparation and race day visualization”

“Breathing” often overlooked by many athletes yet essential to master during practice and on race day. “Breathing” is where it all begins and ends, particularly in the big events…
“In-pool visualization techniques” are given in an almost hypnotic manner, which is a well-proven retention enhancement technique…
This “psychological tool” will improve the swimmer’s entire racing experience and ultimately result in faster times.
