Watch a sample from the Mental Prep for Swim Racing Training Guide.

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

Starts out by addressing the simplest elements of life and athletic performance, “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.
After the breathing section of the DVD, specific “in-pool” visualization techniques are given in an almost hypnotic manner, which is a well-proven retention enhancement technique.
Immediately after starting the DVD, I recalled my son’s most recent race in which he had uncharacteristically “gassed” himself in the first half of a race only to be agonizingly tracked down and passed by two other racers. Watching and listening to this DVD can only help the swimmer in that type of scenario.
When routinely watched in a quiet setting and before every big race, this “psychological tool” will improve the swimmer’s entire racing experience and ultimately result in faster times.”
