The success of many of today’s triathletes is no longer built solely on conventional training methods and techniques. The Renegade Triathlete Psychology System™ (RTPS) offers a unique approach to handling stress and anxiety before the race, building confidence in the athlete’s training and abilities, and clever ways to overcome the extreme mental and physical demands of this popular sport.
RTPS was developed by Performance Coach Stephen Ladd, and is founded on the alternative psychology disciplines of Hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programing (NLP) and Energy Mechanics™. The combination of these three techniques is used to empower triathletes to control their mental/emotional states, and program their subconscious for peak performance in training and racing.
“The mental training is the next evolution for both beginners and top tier triathletes,” contends Ladd. Dave Scott, six times Iron Man World Champion, agrees “There’s no question, the component of triathlon training that is lagging behind is the mental component. We haven’t done a very good job of integrating psychology into training programs”.
While these methods are currently considered unconventional by most in the triathlete world, the results are well documented in many other sports and disciplines. Hypnosis has been used for decades by many of the world’s top athletes in dozens of sports. NLP is a popular “self-improvement and productivity tool” for top executives and artists. Energy Mechanics™ is a sports-specific version of Emotional Freedom Technique, a form of meridian stimulation based on the ancient art of acupuncture.
Among the triathletes that are willing to test out these “road-less-traveled” techniques is Matt Nawrocki of Columbus, Ohio. “I use the hypnosis programs and I feel calm and confident before and throughout the race. It’s like I’m brainwashed, but in a good way.”
According to Ladd, “Triathletes train longer and harder than any other athletes, at least in the physical sense. The missing link has always been a triathlete-specific program to ‘train the brain’. My new system explains in detail how to connect the mind and body for peak performance with a manual and audio hypnosis sessions”.
