If you are a professional, amateur or just do it for fun, whatever your sport, or activity you can vastly improve your technique and ability by utilising the most underused and ignored muscle in the whole body, YOUR BRAIN!

Do you find you have hit a plateau? Your skills are top notch in practice, but when it really counts you choke? Maybe you are just not advancing at the speed you would like? Maybe you are playing well but you just want to play BETTER?

You probably use any advantage, tool, skill or technique you can to get the edge. You have the best equipment, the best coach, the best trainer, but do you have your best mental attitude? At the highest levels of competition, it is seldom physical skill that makes the difference. Most top athletes are evenly matched. The difference is in the mind!

At the elite sports training centres, mental tools such as visualisation, imagery and mental rehearsal are an increasingly dominant part of the training regiment:
