Espresso Lessons: Practical Mental Fitness Applications in Stress and Risk Situations
with author Arno Ilgner
Slideshow: Monday, June 28, 8pm
Clinic: Tuesday, June 29 6-10pm
Where: The Crag at Cool Springs, Franklin, TN
Arno's first book, The Rock Warrior’s Way, outlines the foundation of the Warrior’s Way ® material. His second book, Espresso Lessons, takes the material into practical climbing situations.
Mental fitness training is simply improving your ability to keep attention in the moment. The most challenging—and interesting—moment in rock climbing is when your mind doubts whether or not you can continue climbing. Knowing when it is appropriate to push through this doubt and when to back off is critical for taking appropriate risks.
Join Arno for an insightful evening of applying the Warrior's Way mental training material to practical climbing situations and beyond.
In this presentation, you'll learn:
1. Limiting mental tendencies and how to avoid them
2. How to use the mind’s intelligence for preparation
3. How to make appropriate risk decisions
4. How to understand falling and consequences
5. How to commit to taking effective action
