How Nirvana® Breathing Fitness can take your sports performance to the next level

14. 07. 2017 - By Nirvana Fitness

As an athlete you know how important it is to leave no stone unturned in your quest for sporting glory. In the competitive environment, gaining an edge on your competition is paramount to your success.

Nirvana® Breathing Fitness can help you smash your goals, and beat out the competition.

Laser Focus in Performance

In the words of internationally renowned Olympic coach Kisik Lee:

"Once an athlete has mastered all the technical and physical qualities required to be successful, then success is 10% physical and 90% mental."

Yet despite this fact athletes spend most their time attention and resources on the physical aspect of training. We hire better coaches, research new and more advanced forms of periodization and buy more expensive equipment.

This pervasive focus on the physical aspects of our performance leads us to overlook the fact that our mind might just be our most valuable ‘muscle’. Our minds have the power to make us faster, stronger and better if we learn how to tame them.

Given the power of our psyches, it’s no surprise that many of the top performers in their sports such as Kobe Bryant and Novak Djokovic admit to incorporating breath focused work into their training routines.

Any athlete knows the importance of being able to quiet the mind during performance. To let all distractions and anxieties fall away and to apply laser focus to the task at hand. Nirvana® Breathing Fitness incorporates elements of mindfulness, breath work and relaxation to train you how to better manage your feelings and emotions under pressure. The result is more concentration, less anxiety, better manages pain and ultimately a new level of performance.

Faster Recovery

The world of sports performance is dominated by a narrative that implies that more work equals better results. While it’s true that to be a competitor at a high level in any sport you must be willing to put in the work to achieve success. However, this narrative has a destructive effect when taken to the extreme.

We constantly push ourselves every session in our quest to improve without giving our bodies’ ample time to adapt. Too much training without adequate rest and recovery, results in a downward cycle of over-training, chronic niggling injuries, fatigue and reduced athletic performance.

Nirvana® Breathing Fitness is a powerful antidote to the negative effects of heavy training. Our certified instructors can mentor you to elicit a restorative parasympathetic response. This activates your body’s natural healing and regenerative responses which allows you to train hard while recovering even harder. Our innovative methods will allow you to consistently smash your goals and reach higher levels of performance week in, week out.
