Dr Amira Najah will help you to understand the inner workings of your mind and how you can win the daily challenge of getting in the zone.

The course is split into four sections and includes techniques for you to experiment with on your journey to achieving an optimal performance mindset.

You’ll come away knowing how to focus your energy, how to embrace and manage your emotions, and how to approach setbacks in a positive way.

When you look back on moments during which you’ve performed at your best, you might describe your state of mind as being ‘in the zone’. It’s in this zone that performing will have felt easy and automatic to you.

As Amira explains in this course, every athlete is different, and every athlete responds to setbacks in their own unique way. It’s about experimenting and finding what works for you. You will learn how your attitude might be affecting your performance and discover relaxation and visualisation techniques that could help you to achieve and maintain a winning mindset.

What you will learn

The course is split into four sections:

  1. Getting in the zone
  2. Relaxation techniques
  3. Visualisation
  4. Healing the mind

Within these four sections, Amira will explain to you what it means to be in the zone, present you with relaxation and visualisation techniques to help you achieve an optimal performance mindset, and share ways of bouncing back mentally when you’ve suffered an injury. This course will help you to gain control over your mind and perform at your best.
