Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, October 26, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- If sports are at least 90 percent mental, then it’s clear that coaches and trainers should incorporate more of the mental aspect into their athletic training. To better link the mental and the physical when it comes to sports success, The Spencer Institute now offers an online Sports Hypnosis Certification Program for coaches and trainers.
An ideal training for sports trainers, strength coaches, hypnotherapists, life coaches, mind-body fitness coaches, psychologists, physical and athletic trainers, high school coaches, and athletes, the self-paced Sports Hypnosis Certification Program gives coaches the tools they need to help their clients achieve their personal goals with mental focus, training and conditioning.
“Combining sports with hypnosis in a business environment can help trainers give their athletes an edge in any competition. This certification program just might be the missing item in your training tool box,” said Dr. John Spencer Ellis, CEO and president of The Spencer Institute and creator of the Sports Hypnosis Certification Program. “And unlike some common misconceptions, hypnosis is actually a relaxed and awake state where the individual is in control, aware and able to clearly follow instructions.”
The comprehensive online training program is applicable to all sports and any fitness or training level. While it is not intended for clinical, office-based applications, the Sports Hypnosis Certification teaches coaches and trainers the language patterns, internal dialogue and mental conditioning techniques required for peak performance. The certification can focus on sports hypnosis to help with areas of self-improvement (weight loss, memory, relaxation, concentration, creativity and others), issues such as procrastination, self-confidence, assertiveness and enthusiasm as well as health issues including mental and physical illness, insomnia, anger, depression, phobias and more. Further, the online training can help people establish and market a sports hypnosis business.
A combination of online digital manuals, video and audio lectures and an online exam, the Spencer Institute’s Sports Hypnosis certification is valid for two years; there are no prerequisites for registration.
