Mind Gym: An Athlete's Guide to Inner Excellence for Outer Performance

by David Casstevens, Gary Mack

Contemporary Books Inc | April 15, 2001 | Hardcover

Mind Gym: An Athlete's Guide to Inner Excellence for Outer Performance is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
Golfing great Bobby Jones said, "Competition is won or lost on the six-inch playing field between the ears." How do the best athletes gain an advantage on that playing field? In Mind Gym, noted sports psychology consultant Gary Mack teaches athletes the lessons he's learned about how the mind influences athletic performance as much as physical skill does, if not more so. Through forty accessible lessons and inspirational anecdotes from prominent athletes--many of whom he has worked with--Mack shares the same techniques and exercises he uses to help elite athletes build mental "muscle." Achieving this inner excellence requires time and effort. The more you work on the inside, the more it shows on the outside. These engaging stories--covering such themes as overcoming adversity, staying motivated, and following one's dreams--will enable you to perform at your best by choice rather than chance. Mind Gym will give anyone who spires to be a better athlete the "head edge" over the competition.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bunch of useless sports anecdotes "An athelete's guide to inner excellence" my foot. More like "the author's musings on how many athlete's he knows". There is not a paragraph in here that doesn't reference some pitcher or golfer. I'm a runner .. I don't care .. half the time I don't even know what I'm reading, because its just a string of sports specific statistics and acronyms. Blah blah blah ERA blah blah blah three-putting (is that bad?) blah blah blah walks-per-strikeout ratio??????? I was expecting descriptions of techniques to use, what I got was a bunch of useless baseball and golf stories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mind Gym This book was so amazing. I didn't know what I thought at the begining and then as I let myself get into it I realized what an edge this would give. I read it twice and then I passed it on to a friend. This book has helped a hockey player (WJHL) get back into the game and myself I have become a regular at the mind gym.
