“I think Mental Preparation is an essential component of performance. Most athletes know how to manage themselves physically and technically when they have followed the preparation for this purpose. Whoever knows how to manage his mind when necessary will be able to make the difference. Understanding how an athlete’s mind works to make him adhere better to the objective and the project is a basis that would be a plus for every coach, and that is what your training provides. » Arthur Yapocurrently at PSG Handball, physical trainer of players such as Nikola Karabatic we Mikkel Hansen and trained by LNF in Mental Preparation.

“Mental Preparation is preparation for progress and performance, it’s very different from psychology in the general sense. This preparation allows better support for the athlete as a whole, so yes, for these reasons hand trainers have an interest in following this training and understanding these tools to nourish their daily lives and better support the athlete in construction. » Yohan Delattreformer world champion, technical manager at the FFH for 20 years, responsible for the U21 double world champions and trained by the LNF.
