Optimal Performance

Many elite athletes, musicians, dancers, artists, executives, and even the Navy SEALS and NASA have achieved their most notable performances or greatest achievements through brain training. Many have used the technology in our program—NeurOptimal®—or one of the older approaches to brain training known as “neurofeedback.”

While there are many distinctions between older forms of neurofeedback and the advanced brain training offered by NeurOptimal®, the point is that while brain training is a new concept for the mainstream, people have been using neurofeedback to achieve peak performance for decades.

Emotional Balance

Emotional balance is a crucial element to peak performance in any arena, from athletic competition to business leadership. Even the smallest thoughts can make the difference in winning silver or gold, or performing in front of an audience of 100,000 fans.

The ability of a runner at the start line to be completely ready, in full force ahead mode, and totally “on”—while simultaneously keeping completely calm and relaxed—requires acute control over emotional balance. We call it emotional self-regulation.

Golf is 90% a mental game. Brain training using NeurOptimal® is being used among many golf professionals as it has proven to enhance mental game and golf game results.
