Whitespace enjoys working with athletes, both amateur and professional. The links between body and mind in order to achieve peak performance are becoming increasingly clear with the improvements in neurological science. Perception is not just visual acuity but self-awareness which allows maximum achievement and optimum decision making. Peripheral vision enhancement improves spatial positioning but more importantly allows the athlete to be in the right place at the right time. Whitespace helps the athlete define the “zone” which is not only occasional but readily available to initiate and retrieve whenever needed.
“A healthy mind in a healthy body”
— Roman poet Juvenal (356-64)
Whitespace methodology has been successfully incorporated in both individual athletic endeavors, as with golfers and jockeys as well as team sports, found with players of football and rugby. In every sport, the controlled reaction to stress during competition is of key importance to sustained success. We are able to increase the athletes’ awareness of space and time, expanding the ability to anticipate optimum movement in order to obtain maximum results.
Whitespace skill sessions are helpful in both injury prevention and rehabilitation. The mental requirements to recover skeletal-muscular performance can be enhanced with Whitespace drills and speed the return to peak performance.
Whitespace works with traditional sports psychologists and coaches to provide alternative therapies which increase the efficacy of training regimes. We would be pleased to propose a Whitespace program to increase your success and sustain maximum performance.
Whitespace athletes don’t occasionally, get “in the zone,” their heightened self-awareness allows them to understand and repeat their optimum level of performance, required to successfully compete and sustain a winning mentality.
