DO YOU HAVE A MENTAL, AS WELL AS PHYSICAL APPROACH, TOWARDS OPTIMIZING THE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR ATHLETES?

WHAT DO YOU DO TO OPTIMIZE THE BRAIN PERFORMANCE OF YOUR ATHLETES SO THEY CAN OUT-THINK, OUT-LEARN, OUT-CREATE THEIR COMPETITION?

The only way that sports people can maintain their competitive advantage in a challenging and competitive world is if they can out-think out-learn and out-create their competition. This makes brain power their number one determiner for success in this millennium. Cognitive science identifies 8 drivers that optimize brain performance and 7 brain-based perspectives on how 21st century people will prefer to utilize their brain for optimum performance. Our neurological wiring determines who we are and how we process information, learn, think and perform. Every sports person has to understand this about themselves in order to be accurately aware of their unique strengths. Neuro-Link has tools to assist sports people and coaches to understand their unique neurological design and the factors that can optimize their brain performance and mental alertness.

Neuro-Link has a collaborative agreement with the University of Pretoria in the field of neuroscience sports optimization for athletes. We follow a holistic approach towards bringing sports people into physical and mental balance in order to optimize their physical and mental performance. We assist athletes to optimize their brain performance by assessing the drivers that enhance their brain performance and how that impacts their unique neurological design. A scientific and unique benchmark of health and skill related fitness is followed in the program.

All athletes are exposed to visual skills optimization and brain integration techniques and activities that will increase their brain fitness as much as their physical fitness.

It is my firm belief that the Neuro-Link Learning Receptiveness Profile (LRP) is an invaluable tool from which all athletes and business people can benefit immensely. I believe the better one knows oneself the more successful you will be in maximizing your potential both in sport and life. The LRP gave me greater clarity on how I process information and specifically how stress impacts my unique neurological design and thereby potentially hinders my performance. This information now empowers me to learn how to better manage myself under pressure and improve my brain optimization.

I believe the LRP is a great tool for both coaches and athletes. There is no relationship more vital to success in sport than the coach – athlete relationship and this profile gives huge insight into how each person functions best and what teaching styles work most effectively on the individual, thus empowering the coach to most effectively communicate information to the athlete and thereby attaining greater success. The LRP profile has further proved vital in my post athletic professional life as now my business partner and I better understand each other, our unique differences and how to best work as a team, thus increasing our productivity and hence attaining greater success.
