EXPERT CONNECTION: MENTAL TOUGHNESS AND THE POWER OF BREATH
The groundbreaking series designed to help athletes navigate their athletic careers, particularly during times of uncertainty, returns this Thursday, June 11 with an exciting edition focused on strengthening the mind and practical breathing exercises.
This useful session of Expert Connection for athletes of all levels will be led by 2012 Olympian and three-time Canadian National Champion in Beach Volleyball, Martin Reader, live on the Panam Sports Channel this Thursday at 5pm ET.
Preparing to compete on the biggest stages in the world of sport is not only a matter of training your body to realize its maximum potential, but also a matter of training your mind to overcome the challenges that you will inevitably face.

During the live session, Martin will provide tips and strategies on how to stay mentally strong on and off the field of play, using a philosophical approach backed by scientific research. As always during the Expert Connection, Martin will then respond to your questions sent through the registration and during the live session using the chat feature of the Panam Sports Channel.
