Publisher's Summary

A bundle of two books in one that will help you acquire the mind of a true athlete!

Book 1: Athletes have a certain mindset. Successful athletes have become who they are because of what happens in their brains. With the right perseverance, ego (or lack of it), ability to adapt, or quickness and eagerness to learn, you can speed up the results of your performance and find more fulfilment in the process. In this book, you'll learn about the following, and more:

  • The difference between a professional sports player and an ace athlete
  • Ways to interact with coaches, trainers, and mentors
  • Reaching your true potential by conditioning your brain to achieve success
  • Overcoming weakness and ego by embracing the entire sport and its history
  • Which general workouts work best and how to keep training when things get tough
  • What a "false champion" is and how to avoid becoming one by not having "improper" motivational thoughts
  • Physical tips to keep you healthy while improving your muscle percentage and getting in shape
  • Secret ways to honing sports skills

Book 2: Let's get practical and discuss some of the things true athletes can do to boost their performance. This guide is a great addition to the regular sports you play, the mindset you developed, and the strong will you have acquired to become a powerful athlete. You will hear about, among other factors:

  • Different muscle groups and the importance of calories, exercising, and stretching
  • General training tips everyone should know
  • Healthy ways to exercise the right way
  • Specific exercises that point out how to stretch, or to increase your endurance or agility
  • The best stretches, aerobics, and yoga exercises anyone can do
  • Visualization, attitude, and other mental tools you need to accomplish the best results
  • Proper ways to smooth off your training habits and perfect them to the core

    "Wow, amazing book"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. it provided a lot of many fabulous insights like how positive attitudes can be a tremendous influence on a person and a world. The narration was in a fairly strong accent which wasn't ideal but I do like that it was narrated by one of the authors of the book.

    "Surprisingly good."

    A great mix between academic research, popular psychology and common sense. It's filled with lots of things I didn't know, but also lots of things I tend to forget.
    Wholeheartedly recommended for people interested in training and thinking management

    I loved this book. Often I can be fearful as I go about life. Fear is often the thing that can hold us back. In this short, to-the-point read, “Mind Gym” sets out to help you push past your limitations and mentally be your best. If you live in fear, you definitely want to consider buying this books.

    "Very good, suggest you All."

    This book is great for athletes, but also for those who are not. The author is an original way to explain the way of life that everyone should have, if you want to achieve success, whether in sport, business or something else. Indeed, this is a book worth to listening!

    "Great book.changed my life!!!"
    Which scene was your favorite?

    N/A


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes I've listen a fair few sports psychology books in the past and found this one to cover a big range of topics but with out too much depth.


    Any additional comments?

    This book helps you to create a training routine suitable for you based on body weight. However, it does not promise you to do it in a matter of days.

    "Perfect book at the perfect time"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is tough to review because people have different expectations with sport psychology books. I loved this book. Once you start it you might not be able to put it down. Its a motivational book that weaves sports psychology principles into stories to illustrate the importance of each principle. This book inspired me to write down an effective system of beliefs and checklists I can go through before a game. The important part is the system and beliefs are mine.
