Welcome to Sportsmind
Hello, and welcome to Sportsmind!
I'm Jeffrey Hodges and I'd like to share with you some powerful reasons why you should make use of our outstanding Sports Success Coaching Systems, Mental Toughness Training workshops, Coaching Excellence Programs, and Sportsmind Products - for sportspeople and coaches.
But before you read any further, let me ask you an important question...
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to know that your competitors were dreading the moment they had to walk on the court / field / track, look up, and see YOU standing there, looking fit and unstoppable, ready to dominate them ..... and feeling totally intimidated by YOU?
Would you like to have that experience?
You can with the help of Sportsmind mental toughness coaching!
Have You Ever Wondered What It Would Be Like To Be Totally Intimidating To Your Opponents ?
Since 1990, I've worked with just about every sport you can think of - from glider pilots, to lawn bowlers, to pistol shooters, to football players, tennis players, golfers, etc. etc. The interesting thing is that virtually every sportsperson who I've worked with personally, or who has attended one of my Sportsmindworkshops, or who has read and used the Sportsmind books and audio tapes or CDs, has improved their performance - some by as much as 75%!
Sportsmind Has The Highest Personal Success Rate Of ANY Personal Success Coaching Program For Sport Currently Available
Do you find this hard to believe? It's a fact.
I spent four and a half years of intense scientific study (January 1992 - June 1996) designing, and then evaluating, the effectiveness of the Sportsmind material. This study was conducted in conjunction with the University of Western Sydney as part of my Master of Science (Hons) thesis. It involved 1,158 athletes and coaches from over thirty different sports and varying ability levels, and identified significant performance enhancements for participants.
[ Check it out at the University if you doubt me - the thesis is available from the university library, and it's titled "Sportsmind : M.Sc.(Hons) Thesis - July 1997", by Jeffrey Hodges B.Sc., School of Social Ecology, University of Western Sydney (Hawkesbury) ]
The study involved a field research project over two years in which 96 intensive, Sportsmind training workshops (varying from 3 to 8 hours in duration) were held throughout Eastern Australia. One hundred and forty two participants volunteered to be part of the study, and seven sportspeople volunteered to be case studies in a more intensive project.
Sports represented in the study included: Golf, Tennis, Triathlon, Athletics, Lawn Bowls, Soccer, Swimming, Cricket, Cycling, Equestrian, Pistol Shooting, Netball, Baseball, Basketball, Surf Lifesaving, Squash, Tae Kwon Do, Hockey, Badminton, Rifle Shooting, Touch Football, Rowing, Rugby, Skiing, Fencing, Water Skiing, Softball, Gliding, Volleyball, Aerobics, and Billiards.
Ninety-five percent of the volunteers who responded noted either "More confident", "More relaxed", "More positive", "Better Concentration" or similar statements in response to questions about their sports performances after attending the Sportsmind workshops. Results of participants responses noted that the Sportsmind workshops improved their sports performances, on average, between 35 - 44%.
The Average Improvement Was a Staggering 35 - 44% !!
Further, seventy percent of respondents identified some significant objective improvements in their sport such as : "Higher batting average"; "Swimming times reduced"; "Won two major shooting events"; "Running faster times"; "Reduction in golf handicap"; "Winning sets more regularly, and finishing off the set more confidently"; "Better placings in triathlon and cycling"; "Moved from lead position to # 2 in Pennant Lawn Bowls"; "Won a few minor club competitions"; and so on, and so on.
Even more definitive results were obtained from the seven 'case studies' who attended the four one-day workshops which comprise the basic Sportsmind curriculum. The results of these case studies found, on average, that participants believed that the Sportsmind workshops had improved their sports performances by an average of 47.1%. Further, they all identified significant objective improvements, such as increase in grade of play, awards, competition victories, and so on.
Since the completion of the study in 1996, I've been conducting Sportsmind workshops throughout Australia, and since 2001 also in the United Kingdom.
HOWEVER, I'VE BEEN REALLY FRUSTRATED BECAUSE, DESPITE THE INITIAL BURST OF IMPROVEMENT, AFTER A MONTH OR TWO, SOME ATHLETES WOULD STOP IMPROVING !
As a success coach I've found this incredibly frustrating -- to see people improve after a workshop, only to lose the momentum, when you KNOW they have the capacity to go further! If you're a coach yourself, you've undoubtedly seen this many, many times!
How Do We Address This Human Tendency For Backsliding & Inertia ?
How do we keep athletes improving? This is the ultimate question every coach wants to be asking, isn't it? Because if you can keep your athletes improving - even just a little bit - EVERY DAY, then ultimately you can achieve success in whatever goal you're after.
I've developed an exciting new approach, that's guaranteed to keep you (or your athletes) moving in the positive direction you want ..... but before I explain what it is and how it works, consider for a moment what the following champions have in common :
Roger Federer, Tiger Woods & Jonny Wilkinson.
What Do Roger Federer, Tiger Woods & Jonny Wilkinson Have In Common ?
They've all used a simple, mental coaching method, (just like Sportsmind provides), to maintain their personal momentum toward the achievement of their magnificent goals and incredibly high personal standards of performance. [In fact, Jonny Wilkinson's kicking coach came to study with me, personally, prior to the English victory in the Rugby World Cup in 2003]
Roger Federer used these amazing mental coaching methods to go to # 1 in the world, and Tiger Woods has used these powerful techniques since he was a boy. So I know these techniques work. They have worked for many champions.
They Can Work For You Too !
Of course, if you're just playing for 'social' reasons, if you've no interest in improving your game, then read no further! This message is only for aspiring sports professionals and coaches. However if you do want to improve ...... if you've dreamed of being a sports star like Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Steve Waugh, Kathy Freeman, David Beckham, or Sashin Tendulkar then .....
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MESSAGE YOU WILL EVER READ!
Here's why .....
"The Key To Leaping Ahead Of Your Competition Is NOT Through Just Training Harder, Practising longer, Spending More Time On court, Or On The Track, Or In The Gym Or The Pool ....... Struggling To Succeed. It's In Knowing The SUCCESS STRATEGIES That All The Champions Know ........ And This Discovery Will Change Your Life!"
Most sportspeople and coaches don't know how, or WON'T TELL YOU - they keep the secret to themselves! Wouldn't you?
So what's the secret?
WHAT'S THE SECRET ?
Obviously, this is my hard won, intellectual property that I share exclusively with my clients and students, and that I encourage you read further to discover - to convince you of the incredible value that Sportsmind can bring to your sports performances, and your life.
However I will tell you this much -- what I've discovered over the past few years of further development of my Sportsmind ideas and techniques :
SUCCESSFUL SPORTSPEOPLE HAVE CONSISTENT
ENCOURAGEMENT & SUPPORT
This is the basis of my NEW, Sportsmind Sports Success Coaching Systems :
Consider this. I'm NOT an academic; I'm NOT a 'psychologist' - though I do
have three degrees from three different universities. I don't get paid by the Australian Institute of Sport or State Sports Academies ...... I get paid on results, not for developing new 'theories', or just 'talking about' ideas.
IF MY CLIENTS DON'T GET RESULTS -- I DON'T EAT !!
Sportsmind is a private enterprise which, like other private enterprises, survives only by serving its customers ...... and by continually offering new innovations and outstanding improvements.
Further, I like to walk the talk. I cannot in all honesty stand up in front of a group of elite sportspeople without having proven - in my own life as well as with others - that the techniques I teach actually work, and will significantly improve your performance!
In addition to my 20 + years of work with athletes from dozens of different sports, I've studied the martial art of Aikido for the past eleven years, and I've applied all of the Sportsmind principles and techniques to my own training.
I've Proven That The Sportsmind Techniques Work, With Others & In My Own Training
But look - don't just take my word! If you're serious about improving your own sports performance, take some time to study the rest of the information on this website - after all, isn't the chance of improving your sports performances worth a few extra minutes of your time?
Take a look at the hundreds of testimonials from sportspeople and coaches just like you.
In addition, I offer a personal, no questions asked, unconditional, money-back guarantee on all Sportsmind products and services.
IF YOU ARE NOT 100% SATISFIED, IF YOU DON'T SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE YOUR SPORTS PERFORMANCE AS A DIRECT RESULT OF USING MY SPORTSMIND COACHING SYSTEMS I WILL REFUND YOUR MONEY , IN FULL.
NO QUESTIONS. NO HASSLES. NO CONDITIONS.
Now even with the hundreds of testimonials, scientifically substantiated results, and my personal guarantee, both you and I know that lots of people won't do anything about it, will they?
They won't even email me, or call to find out more information now! Yet, they will continue to moan about their inconsistency on the playing field, or their lack of confidence, or their loss of motivation to train, or their slump in form.
Sportsmind Programs Are Not For The 'Average' Sportsperson
Of course, you and I know they're not really committed - they're losers and wannabes! Don't be sorry for them, they had the opportunity to respond, just like you do now, ...... just don't be one of them! Contact me immediately to register your interest and get a FREE SPORTSMIND INFO PACK.
Sportsmind programsare not for average athletes, or social players - they are for the serious sportsperson; someone truly committed to improving, a real professional. I'm thinking that may be you, but only you know how committed you are to your sport.
Are you a real player ... or just a 'wannabe'?
Are you someone who just wishes and hopes - or are you the kind of person who takes charge of their own performance and destiny?
DO YOU WANT TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR SPORTS PERFORMANCE, AND YOUR DESTINY?
So are you committed to your sport? Are you committed to taking your performance to the next level?
Being committed means that you're willing to invest time, effort and financial resources for your benefit and in your own best interest. Most professional sportspeople won't bat an eyelid in spending $500 and more on a new piece of equipment or the latest sports shoes, and over a year easily spend tens of thousands of dollars on coaching fees, equipment, practice fees, massages, physio, gym fees, and so on.
Yet They Short-change Themselves By Not Doing Anything About
The MOST IMPORTANT Aspects Of their Game !
As you already know, your mental and emotional preparation and readiness is EVERYTHING in competition, and this is precisely what Sportsmind can help you to master.
Yes, Sportsmind is TOP QUALITY and, of course, you do pay a little more for the best in anything, don't you? However, when you consider the ultimate VALUE of what you get from Sportsmind, it's easy to justify spending a few extra dollars to get the best.
DON'T YOU WANT THE BEST FOR YOURSELF ?
Don't you want the best for yourself? If you don't, then you should probably be looking for a new career anyway!
Every sports champion that I know of, or have worked with personally, only ever wants the best equipment, the best technical coaching, the best medical advice, the best personal trainer .... and the BEST MENTAL SKILLS TRAINING.
That's Why So Many Top Sportspeople Have Already Chosen Sportsmind !
What makes Sportsmind services and productsso different from any other personal coaching programs, or from the services of a 'sport psychologist'?
1. Firstly, they are the result of over TWENTY YEARS of scientific research and development.
2. Secondly, the techniques have been PROVEN IN PRACTICE with, literally, thousands of sportspeople from all the major sports.
3. Thirdly, we use the most effective, new educative and training technologies - in contrast to the tired old 'counselling' and 'psycho-analysis' methods of 'sport psychology'.
4. Fourthly, you get a solid, no conditions, no hassles, MONEY BACK GUARANTEE of personal improvement and TOTAL SATISFACTION - or your money back !
5. Fifthly, all Sportsmind programs are comprehensive and include everything you need : training CD's / Audio Tapes, Books, success journal, etc, etc.
