Visualization

Visualization or mental imagery, is a training tool that improves the quality of athletic movement, increases the power of concentration, and serves to reduce the pressures of competition on the athlete while building confidence.

Studies have shown a powerful relationship between mental and physical performance in sports. Visualization has been shown to develop better focus and concentration in athletes, help athletes react more instinctively, and help overcome pre-race anxiety.
