Why should you read it?

Mind Gym is a great read for professional athletes and coaches because it teaches you that 'what you think affects how you feel and perform.’ It’s important as coaches and athletes to train the mental muscles as much as we train the physical muscles.

-Natalie Nakase

Synopsis

In Mind Gym, noted sports psychology consultant Gary Mack explains how your mind influences your performance on the field or on the court as much as your physical skill does, if not more so. Through forty accessible lessons and inspirational anecdotes from prominent athletes--many of whom he has worked with--you will learn the same techniques and exercises Mack uses to help elite athletes build mental "muscle." Mind Gym will give you the "head edge" over the competition.

"Believing in yourself is paramount to success for any athlete. Gary's lessons and David's writing provide examples of the importance of the mental game."
-Ben Crenshaw, two-time Masters champion and former Ryder Cup captain

"Mind Gym hits a home run. If you want to build mental muscle for the major leagues, read this book."
-Ken Griffey Jr., Major League Baseball MVP
