Sports Psychology and mental training is often misunderstood as VooDoo, a magical saying, or something being wrong, and is often overlooked in performance training. Dr. Neff welcomes speaking to and educating teams, players, and organizations on what mental training really is, a logical proactive approach to performance enhancement. The more you know about the power of the mind, the stronger and more confident you will be in reaching your performance goals.
MENTAL SKILLS TRAINING - It Just Makes Sense
NECK-UP TRAINING™ IS A PROACTIVE APPROACH TO DEFINE THE LOGIC™ BEHIND THE MIND'S ROLE IN SPORTS PERFORMANCE. NO MATTER WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOURSELF FROM SPORTS OR LIFE, YOUR PRIMARY POWER SOURCE COMES FROM THE NECK-UP.
SO MUCH TIME IS SPENT TRAINING THE BODY, AND MENTAL TRAINING IS TYPICALLY NOT EVEN THOUGHT OF. THAT WAY OF THINKING IS COMPLETELY BACKWARD. PHYSICAL ABILITY CAN ONLY TAKE YOU SO FAR. YOU CANNOT TRAIN YOUR BODY TO REACH ITS POTENTIAL BEFORE YOU TRAIN YOUR MIND. YOU CANNOT COMMIT TO BEING AN EXCEPTIONAL PLAYER UNTIL YOUR MIND IS READY TO TAKE YOU THERE. YOUR MIND IS YOUR GATEWAY OR YOUR ROADBLOCK TO BEING EXCEPTIONAL.
NECK-UP TRAININGTM TEACHES THE MIND TO TRAIN THE BODY THROUGH BREAKING DOWN AND UNDERSTANDING FIVE ESSENTIAL MENTAL SKILLS. DR. NEFF DEVELOPED THESE FIVE ESSENTIAL MENTAL SKILLS THROUGH HIS YEARS OF WORK WITH SOME OF THE MOST ELITE PLAYERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD.
Conventional skills training alone isn't the answer to improving performance. Mental training is typically the missing, often overlooked, and not talked about component. Recognized nationally and internationally for his work with NBA, EuroLeague, College, and Nationally Ranked High School basketball players, including recent players such as Lonnie Walker IV (ESPN Rank #12 2017, University of Miami, 2018 Spurs First Round Pick #18), Cameron Reddish (ESPN Rank #3 2018, Duke University), Jake Forrester (ESPN Top 100 2018, Indiana University), and Gavin Schilling (ESPN Rank #39 2013, Michigan State University), Dr. Neff is able to help you attain an elite mindset.
GUEST SPEAKING - Defining the Logic of Mental Training
"PHYSICALITY ALLOWS YOU TO DOMINATE TO A CERTAIN POINT.
TALENT DOES EVENTUALLY LEVEL OUT.
MENTALITY IS WHAT ULTIMATELY MAKES YOU UNSTOPPABLE."
