The Game Within The Game


The Seminar

Main goals of the Seminar

A common understand in sports is that performance is 70-90 percent mental. Given that this is true, then athletes need to know how to train mentally as well as physically.

This is a seminar to help participants (primarily athletes) realize that mental training is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Based on Applied Sport Psychology research and 35 years’ experience, Mike Margolies will bring valuable information to the attendees. Covering topics ranging from motivation to optimal performance, Mike Margolies will present the information in a knowledgeable and fun way insuring that the participant may understand through multiple learning channels. This full day seminar with Margolies will use his book, The Athlete within You as a guideline. A full workbook is included with everyday exercise’s that participant can use in training.

The seminar will provide real life examples of athletes Mike has worked with and how they overcame issues to perform at a higher level. The major objective of the seminar is to provide a basis for the participant to do the same.

The seminar will include multiple approaches to developing an approach for participants to cope with competitive stress and learn to focus their attention. There will be many opportunities for seminar participants to participate individually and as a group in exercises to help them understand this process.

This full day seminar will give all of the participants the tools to begin their journey in understanding the athlete within them. Come learn about The Game Within The Game and what mental training can do to help bring your game to the next level.
