How I use the HeartMath System
First tee jitters? Trouble closing out a good round? Always blow up on a certain hole/course/situation? Struggle to recover from a bad shot? Learn to manage your emotions, redirect the negative thoughts, and improve your stress response in real-time for better decision making and performance (on and off the course)! *Although my specialty is golf, I can help any athlete learn how to perform better under pressure.
The ability to respond to stress and to be resilient are some of the most important skills a golfer (or person) can learn. I truly believe that doubt is the number one cause of messed up shots. Doubt is based on fear of what might happen in the future. Learn to calm down your body's response to stress and take back control of your feelings, thoughts, and body. Did you know that the stress response shuts down higher-level brain function? Think about that the next time you wonder why you responded in a less than optimal situation when you were under stress. HeartMath tools can not only help you to perform better but also to live a happy, more fulfilled life.

HeartMath now has a new online training called the HeartMath Experience! It allows you to do the bulk of learning the knowledge and tools online at your own pace and costs only $29.95. You can purchase "The Inside Story" e-book for 5.95 or "Managing Emotions: Golf's Next Frontier" e-book for 9.95. Both books have the same basic information but the Managing Emotions is more golf/sport specific.
As a bonus, if you purchase the HeartMath Experience AND one of the above-listed e-books, email me a copy of your receipt at LPGolfAcademy@gmail.com I will send you the Zone Performance Training PDF at no charge.
If you are local, we can include HeartMath tool integration into your regular golf lessons. If you do not live in the Minneapolis area or work with another golf coach, you can schedule a HeartMath phone coaching session for $80/hour if you would like continued coaching on how to integrate the HeartMath principals and tools into your golf game or your life.

If any of these apply to you, the Inner Balance Sensor is made just for you! You clip the sensor to your earlobe and it monitors your heart rate variability in real-time letting you see (and hear) if you are moving your heart into a state of coherence!
If you would like to try it, let me know. I have one that I use and I love it!
I have a few of the old units in stock with the 30-pin Apple Connector. They work great as long as you have an Apple 30-pin to Lightning Adapter. If you have one of these cords that allows for data transfer (charge only cords do NOT work), I will sell this 30-pin model of inner balance sensor for $40 until I run out.
