The Athlete of Yesterday focused on muscle building. The Athlete of Today focuses on biomechanics and fascia. However, what has been done and what is currently being done is not enough! The athlete of Tomorrow focuses on muscles, mechanics and NEUROSCIENCE. 

For athletes to fully realize their potential, neuroscience must be included in training and applied not only to psychology but to physiology as well. The body and mind cannot be separated so even though coaches and athletes focus on mechanics during a "slump" or even injury, they should realize how thoughts are motor activity and how this disrupts mechanics. 


Our guest today is Dr. Roy Sugarman, Director of Applied Neuroscience at Athletes' Performance. Dr. Sugarman is a clinical neuropsychologist, a clinical psychologist, and an internationally-recognized expert in optimizing brain performance. With decades of experience working with corporate and field athletes, as well as victims of brain injury, Dr. Sugarman brings an objective approach to the management of mindset. He also advises on how to use these results to improve performance.
