Guided Visualizations for the 2015 CrossFit Open
Written by CJ Martin

Are you looking for the final edge in athletic performance? Visualizations and meditation have always been components of every elite athlete’s performance toolbox, but it can be intimidating to create your own. For the last several years, Invictus athletes have been aided by guided visualizations to prepare them for competition.

Often your mental pathways are so fixed that you can accidentally reinforce bad habits. One of the best ways to break those habits and achieve peak performance in visualization is to allow a professional to guide you through it. Join world class mental toughness coach Heidi Fearon on a custom tailored guided visualization recording for each of the 2015 CrossFit Open workouts.

Heidi has an incredible background as an athlete having swam for the US Naval Academy at Annapolis (setting 14 records during her time there, 1 of which still stands 15 years later) as well as competing in adventure races, the Ironman, and being very active in the CrossFit community. Combine that with a graduate program in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and thousands of hours of practice around the world studying abroad in China, India, and Nepal as well as at home in San Diego and you’re putting yourself in the very best hands possible to guide you through an apex level visualization. Heidi is a certified Theta practitioner and yoga instructor and puts together the best and most effective visualizations you can find.

If you enjoyed the guided visualization included with “The Invictus Mindset: An Athlete’s Guide To Mental Toughness“, you’ll love Heidi’s visualizations created specifically for the Open. Formerly only available to our private coaching athletes, Heidi’s guided visualizations are now accessible each week for download. You’ll be able to purchase each visualization individually for only $5.99 each, starting with 15.1: Invictus 15.1 Guided VisualizationOr you can purchase all 5 visualizations (a $29.95 value) for only $19.97: Invictus 2015 Open Guided Visualization Bundle.

To Do the 2015 CrossFit Open or Not

To Do the 2015 CrossFit Open or Not Written by Nuno Costa If you remember back to last year, I wrote a nice list of why you should do the CrossFit Open (To Do the Open Or Not). I would like to revisit that topic since its that time of the year.
