Certification Course Teaches Coaches How to Train Athletes to Mentally Be on the Doorstep of the “Zone” Every Time They Compete
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Nutrition and physical training are long-accepted building blocks of athletic performance. Optimizing mental performance is the next great frontier. Neuropeak Pro, a leading mental performance training company, created the Level 1 NTEL BELT Certification program to give coaches and trainers an in-depth understanding of how Precision Breathing and Heart Rate Variability (HRV) impacts an athlete’s ability to perform under pressure. Neuropeak Pro’s NTEL BELT is a real-time training device designed to align diaphragm-based performance breathing and HRV. The wearable Bluetooth device is positioned around the torso, while the mobile app and instructional videos guide users through training sessions designed to optimize an individual’s ability to respond to stress and unlock “zone-like” performance potential.
“We created the certification program so trainers, coaches, and wellness professionals fully understand, and can properly teach how to use the Neuropeak Pro NTEL BELT,” said Vice President of Performance Programs, Nick Bolhuis. “This represents the first level of a growing curriculum that will continually evolve with our technology and the science of mental performance.”
Precision Breathing and HRV training improves performance with a “bottom up” approach that helps sync the rhythm of the user’s heart with their breathing structure. The approach is backed by scientific evidence which demonstrates a connection between intentional breathing practices and management of the Autonomic Nervous System, which manages your body’s “fight-or-flight” and “rest-and-recovery” responses.
The Level 1 NTEL BELT Certification course includes tutorial videos and quiz material delivered digitally through an online portal. The training program fully equips valued partners to become proficient in Precision Breathing Training for themselves and their network. Those who are NTEL BELT certified will have the skills to offer Precision Breathing Training as an additional service for those in their network. Once completed, course enrollees will receive an official NTEL BELT Certificate and marketing materials to display at their training facility and on their website. In addition, the PGA of America will award 3 Professional Development Requirement (PDR) credits to any PGA Professional completing the Level 1 NTEL BELT Certification.
“I’m fortunate to work with the best golfers in the world, and always look to create advantages for my players,” said Chris Mayson, a GOLF Magazine-Top 100 Teacher and Golf Digest-Best Young Teacher in America. “Neuropeak Pro helps my players achieve a peak performance mindset which allows them to play their best golf. I truly believe that Neuropeak Pro gives my players a significant advantage both mentally and physically.”
The Level 1 NTEL BELT Certification course can be purchased for $150 by existing users of the NTEL BELT, or as a part of Neuropeak Pro’s Performance Program. The Performance Program retails for $349 and includes an NTEL BELT, the Level 1 Certification course, and additional benefits such as VIP in-app support, trial access to team dashboards, and available office hours with the Neuropeak Pro performance training staff.
