The Mind and Body Partnership | How to Perform Your Best & Get in the Zone! | with Al Fuentes

My clients find the understanding of the mind and body partnership extremely important in the in life and in competition.  When they incorporate the my teachings they experience less injuries, better body response and the ability to get "In The Zone"  

Getting in the zone can be something you can create.  It doesn't just have to happen by accident but it is important to understand how to get in the zone.

This video talks about one of the simple steps to get you there.  Preparation Breath which is one of the 4 breaths in my breathing system.

I am not a sports psychologist or a counselor but I have learned how to use the physical body to master the chemical body (emotional body) to over come our mental obstacles. 

Many elite athletes have used me to take their game to the next level because its not about talking its about action. The time or talk is over, it is now time to train our mind like we train our bodies. Consistent work will make you a mental champ!
