Synopsis: Whether you have Olympic aspirations or you've simply found a fun way to stay fit, you want to get the most from your skating experience - and from yourself! This inspiring, easy-to-use manual is written for skaters of all levels and disciplines who are looking to realize their full potential.
Newly updated, the second edition of "The Inner Champion" offers proven techniques that can help you boost your mental toughness, plus added information for coaches, parents, and team skaters. Choeleen Loundagin's comprehensive approach and fun, step-by-step training methods will enhance your life both on and off the ice!
From the Publisher: This manual appeals to skaters of all ages and disciplines who want to realize their potential both on and off the ice. It is also a practical guide for coaches and parents wishing to enhance the total skating experience of their students and children. The second edition retains the unique characteristics that made the first edition so popular in the world of skating - it's written in the language of figure skaters, it's easy to read, the mental toughness exercises make the manual fun to use, and the information applies to pursuits both on and off the ice. The second edition is enhanced with supporting quotes from top skaters, their parents, and their coaches; additional techniques and exercises; more in-depth explanations; extensive advice for team skaters; and a wide variety of information included particularly for the reference of coaches and parents. It should be noted that recreational skaters can also benefit from using Inner Champion techniques as long as! they are interested in realizing their potential and/or having more fun.
The quotes included throughout the book offer inspiring insight into what prominent skaters, as well as their coaches and parents, do to bring out the best in themselves and those around them. The additional techniques,expanded mental toughness training exercises, and more involved explanations in the second edition reflect current research as well as Ms. Loundagin's development as an Athletic Performance Enhancement Consultant. The more Ms. Loundagin works with skaters and other athletes, the more she learns about the best tools for bringing out the champion that is inside every person.
Of course, many skaters today contribute their mental and physical skills to a team effort. Pair and dance skaters continue to be a constant in skating, while participation in synchronized and theatre on ice teams is growing rapidly. In recognition of the increased popularity of team skating and the fact that skating with a partner or group adds another challenging dimension to peak performing, advice specific to team skaters - those who skate with one or more people - has been included throughout the second edition.
The second edition contains a message at the end of each chapter, which is directed expressly to the most important members of a skater's support team - coaches and parents. These messages explain how a coach and parents can best assist their students and/or children in their pursuit of mental toughness and athletic excellence. Coaches and parents will find helpful suggestions regarding how to use mental skills to improve their own lives, as well. Adults can apply the parent information to themselves or a significant other, as appropriate.
A noteworthy enhancement that is both instructive and entertaining is the inclusion of vignetters illustrating the impact mental toughness (or the lack of mental toughness) can have on a skater. At the begining of several chapters, you will find stories about Negative Nettie and Newt, and Positive Polly and Pete. Their stories are told to help readers understand how their thoughts, emotions, reactions, and behaviors all affect how much fun and success they experience while they skate. Readers might recognize themselves in some of the stories, and they may wish they were more like Positive Polly and Pete and less like Negative Nettie and Newt. Fortunately, everyone can control his or her thoughts, emotions, reactions, and behaviors to become mentally tough just like Polly and Pete, and this manual can help readers learn how.
The worksheets in the first edition have been redesigned as mental toughness exercises that can be completed in the reader's own self-designed mental toughness training journal. The fun, easy-to-follow exercises still provide the opportunity to immediately apply the information contained in the manual. However, in contrast to the one-time usage offered by the original worksheets, maintaining a journal will encourage the ongoing developments of mental toughness training throughout a skater's career.
The additions and updated information, as well as the unique qualities that made the first edition an immediate success, allow the second edition of "The Inner Champion" to maintain the designation of being an exceptional resource than can be used throughout a skater's career to win the mental game!
