It trains your brain using tried and true psychological tactics as well as innovate techniques developed by the creator, Dillon Freed.
His name is Dillon Freed – a decent player but who specialized in psychology to help people. He is founded of GeniusLIFE LLC. He has worked with hundreds of thousands of athletes. He holds a degree in psychology and has dedicated his life to improving people’s lives using psychology – not just in sports.
It uses old-school stuff like Neuro-Linguistic programing, more popular psychology like Psycho-cybernetics, along with Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), an emotional clearing technique called Releasing, elements of Emotion Focused Therapy, some Freudian frameworks, Jungian Archetypes and popular interpretations of Jung’s work, along with the work of Abraham Maslow (founder of Humanistic psychology) and more recent findings from Positive Psychology founded by Martin Seligman.
Benefits include more subjective elements like increased confidence and enthusiasm – which can’t be measured by are by far and away some of the greatest take aways you will experience. But beyond that, you will see an increase in shooting percentage, a decrease in turnovers and mental errors, better performance in the clutch, and much, much more. You will find consistency in your game, and be noticed by coaches and scouts more. Your opponents and teammates will find newfound respect for you. In short, it will help make you the best version of your basketball self. (And I might add, many of the drills can be carried over into your daily life.)
No! Mental training is something that has to be infused with the “gym rat” life. However, if you are just a weekend warrior, just doing the mental drills will help you improve your game considerably. But if you are a serious athlete, still competing at high levels, you need both physical and mental training. There are times when, because of injury, you cannot practice – and if you perform your mental training during this period, especially visualizations, you will be back on the court faster and get your rhythm back much faster.
The program has been in the making since 1997, when it’s created began using mental training on himself and others. And also, it is felt that this will be the future of training.
We are working on Virtual Reality content to augment on court drills as well as mental rehearsal. Stay tuned!
