Club Meeting for October. Speaker: Ted Huang
Mental Performance Training
Perhaps you suffer from race anxiety? Lack motivation or self-confidence? Do negative thoughts pervade your mind at times?
The ultimate goal of mental skills training is to enable you to perform your best in any situation by keeping you focused and present. Whether in sport, work, or in life, our mind often impedes us during critical moments. As working professionals in any performance based endeavor, we spend thousands of hours training ourselves for peak performance without much regard to the mental aspect which often makes or breaks our performances. What if you could develop your own performance tool kit to help facilitate your mind and body working in sync?
Ted comes to mental performance coaching after 30+ years of competitive involvement in elite level endurance sports. While his first love was windsurfing, he became a professional cyclist for a short time, which enabled him to found the successful Webcor men’s and women’s professional road cycling teams that helped four of their athletes achieve their goal of participating in the Olympics. Ted says his claim to fame is having had the opportunity to attend five Olympics spanning 1992 to 2008.
