Publisher's Summary

Two valuable books that will boost your energy levels in no time!

Book one: 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, among others:

  • 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 two: A motivating, amazing book that will help you get through the tough times...the moments when you are about to give up or crash down on the couch, the moments when it really matters to keep running, practicing, or training. In this guide, you'll learn about:

  • The benefits of exercise and why we need to keep moving
  • Silent voices in your head you can use to your benefit
  • The invisible crowd that is always cheering you on
  • Sixty-one motivational sports quote for true athletes
  • Inspiring stories from the underdog, the champion, and the Olympic competitor
  • How some people became experts after being in wheelchairs, beaten down, or handicapped
  • Famous examples of athletes who made it to the top, despite or even because of their failures

    "Train your mind to be the champion you want to be."

    A champion makes greatness happen, despite what may seem impossible odds. Of course, most of us are not Olympians or professional athletes. But all of us can acquire an ace athlete mindset. Any athlete can learn to think like a champion.

    Every one of us can be peak performers in the game of life by achieving our own personal best. We can strive to be the best version of ourselves. It is possible for us to stay ‘professional’ whenever adversity strikes. It is possible to ingrain mental fortitude that drives us forward. And it is possible to take a championship approach.

    Great book like this is meant to help us achieve that. Train your mind to be the champion you want to be.

    "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

    "This book is great for athletes.."
    Any additional comments?

    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!<br/>

    "Great package.."

    This book is a great. I have bought several copies for the runners in the family. Inspiring motivating, and something you want to come back to again and again. Great read. Motivating. Flows easy to keep you interested. Feeling extra motivated as I type this. I would recommend this.

    Excellent book! This book is so good. In every way. You won't be able to get past the book jacket without learning something priceless valuable. It's reviewers and Vance's introduction, the author's bio. and words...it just is so deep, yet simple. Please read this book if you want to know the true pathway to success in the gym, at the community track, standing in front of your refrigerator, even in a church pew. Worth it!

    "Excellent"

    Excellent book! If you want to listen an inspiring book on the power of the mind in sports, then this book is for you. It is not too packed with information, but it underlines many of the important points in mental coaching. Great stories and examples make it an uplifting book. The only thing missing was a step-by-step instruction guide to mind management - practice makes perfect. Really worth recommending!

    "awesome bundle.."

    When I saw the title of this book, I found it interesting. This book will guide you to become an expert athlete in mind body and spirit.

    This is an inspiring book. It teaches how to set great standards and achieve in life. It has lots of tips to become an ace athletes. It has detailed information on how athletes should maintain discipline in life, etc. For me this was an educational read about training and thinking like an ace athlete. I got many insights and it was a good listen.

    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.<br/>
