What Professionals are Saying About Mind Training

Quarterback Russell Wilson has been working with a mental conditioning consultant since 2012 to help him maintain heightened levels of awareness, focus, and leadership.

“The idea of mindfulness is really important — being mindful of situations, the surroundings you have, understanding what other people are thinking, understanding what other people do extremely well and what their weaknesses are — how do you heighten their strengths and how do you strengthen their weaknesses. I think that’s kind of the thought process, especially as a quarterback, that I always have to be conscious of, that I always have to be utilizing.”

All-Pro Safety Earl Thomas credits his defensive coverage and game awareness to the mental skills approach taken by the Seattle Seahawks.

“[Mindfulness] puts an emphasis on focus. I couldn’t focus for a long period of time until I got here. It took practice,” Thomas said. “You see everything for what it is — you notice it. When it comes to football, how the game moves, I can see everything now. My eyes can expand to see the whole picture.”

Russell Okung, NFL Offensive Tackle

“Meditation is as important as lifting weights and being out here on the field for practice"

Phil Jackson brought mind training to both the World Champion Chicago Bulls and LA Lakers

Michael Jordon

"The crowd gets quiet, and the moment starts to become the moment for me . . . that’s part of that Zen Buddhism stuff. Once you get into the moment, you know when you are there. Things start to move slowly, you start to see the court very well. You start reading what the defense is trying to do"

Deena Kastor: Olympic Bronze Medalist and American Record Holding Marathon Runner

"With meditation, I can get in a calm state and perform with focus so I can compete optimally"
