”What it is, you start seeing where guys are going before they get there. It gives you the effect of the game being in slow motion. It’s a combination of anticipation and visualization.” – Kobe Bryant after scoring 81 points in an NBA game.
Bryant and other elite athletes, from Michael Jordan and LeBron James to Peyton Manning and Tom Brady know what it’s like to be in that special, elusive place that players call ”The Zone.”
It’s a level of performance in which the athlete is solely focused on the task at hand – and his or her performance rises to the highest peak. Outside distractions, from crowd noise to feeling the pressure to perform from coaches and teammates, disappear.
Basketball players sinking multiple jump shots, baseball players spraying line drive after line drive and quarterbacks completing one pass after another all have experienced being in The Zone. It’s a place the best athletes want to return to as frequently as possible.
Which raises the question: How do they get there?
Natural ability, the drive to succeed and years and years of practice all play a part. But proper training of the mind, as well as the body, can also lead athletes to perform at the highest possible level.
At Advanced Health & Performanc Institute in Orlando, we offer an intensive two-week brain training program for cognitive efficiency tailored to serve professional athletes through brain mapping, and top-notch amateurs and collegiate players who dream of someday reaching the pro ranks.
The program is NeuroZone™ Pro, which combines high-level training using neurofeedback techniques to improve your mental game with nutrients, vitamins and supplements to get your body in the best condition possible.
What is neurofeedback?
NeuroZone™ Neurofeedback offered at AHPI for athletes is designed to improve the skills that the best athletes rely on to rise to the highest levels of their chosen sport. Eye-hand coordination, improved balance and the ability to make quick decisions under game-time pressure are skills all athletes need to succeed. At Advanced Health, we can help you train your brain so you can achieve success, especially when the game is on the line. Visit our friendly staff to learn about the difference between biofeedback and neurofeedback.
Neurofeedback has been used by athletes in every major professional sport and by numerous Olympic teams around the world.
The second key component of NeuroZone™ Pro is ensuring your body has the fuel it needs to propel your performance to peak levels.
At AHPI, we use NeuroZone™ Nutrition, to deliver the strongest nutrients, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants directly into your blood stream. All of our trainings are safe and legal.

- Is excellent for the professional practice squad and training squad athletes who need to boost their performances to make team rosters as full-fledged team members.

What Is Required of Me?
The NeuroZone™ Pro program calls for:
- Taking part in a two-week program that includes working and training with AHPI staff every day – sometimes twice a day.
- Neurofeedback work twice a day.
- A more concentrated program for professional athletes to deliver results quickly and effectively.
NeuroZone™ Pro is an ideal program for use during the off-season to ensure your performance levels remain high and that you enter training camp in top mental and physical condition.
Athletes who take part in the program should notice a reduction in ”mental chatter” during the first week, which leads to better on-field decision making.
Adding lean muscle weight and reducing body fat levels are extra benefits.
