HeartMath for Optimal Sports Performance

Athletes from many sports disciplines from Olympic sports to professional golf, football and cricket have harnessed the power of HeartMath® to take control of their performance and harness their innate emotional power to perform on demand. Our HeartMath for Optimal Sports Performance programme is a cutting edge, scientifically validated programme that teaches athletes the powerful HeartMath techniques to control their emotional game and optimise their performance. Athletes who combine mental and emotional training with their physical training have a real competitive advantage and are much better equipped to enter into the peak performance zone more consistently. Our emotional state and perceptions, not our thinking, play the dominant role in creating a coherent physiological state (the zone) for optimal performance. Classic psychology-based programmes are be useful in developing modes of thought, but they don’t address the critical issue of the connection between emotions, physiology and performance.

Research has identified a psycho-physiological state in which the interactions between the heart, brain and nervous systems become synchronised. This state of synchronisation can be observed, measured and trained using award-winning bio-feedback technology. This measurable state provides players with increased coordination, improved motor skills and timing, improved decision-making, sensitivity and clarity in and out of the sports arena.
The tools and techniques taught in this programme train athletes how to regulate and shift their psycho-physiological state in the moment and then extend it for prolonged periods.
