    Hypnosis can improve workouts and help get you over that plataue! With hypnosis you can expect:

    • Program endurance: The ‘will’ always breaks before the muscle unless you are specifically conditioned for endurance.

    • Increase strength: Weight lifting increase bench press by 30% through hypnosis.

    • Develop a new technique through in-trance visualization without the intervention of gravity. Used for sports where gravity prevents an athlete from practicing techniques in slow motion (i.e. Diving, Gymnastics.)

    • Increase motivation: Improving the desire and dedication to train and perform hard.

    • Improve focus: Eliminating mental distractions and barriers while training or performing.

    • Install the self-image of an athlete: Change the view of the ‘under dog’ or ‘couch potato’ to that of a sports person.

    • Install traits of a professional athlete.

    • Increase an athlete’s speed by slowing down their perception of time, hence they will run faster, punch quicker etc.

    • Remove hesitations/freezing/choking during competition.

    • Learn to enjoy the ‘pain’ of sports.

    • Revisit a previous good performance and set up anchors to trigger that resourceful state again when required.

    • Good nutrition instillation: Change to fitness attitudes and behaviors. Stop viewing food as a source of taste pleasure to viewing food as a source of fuel for the body. (as athletes do)

    • Remove mental obstacles to success: Fear of success or the repercussions that it may bring (i.e. Pressure to keep performing at a high level.)

    • Install complex behaviors unconsciously: Reduces over consciousness of complex movements which can have an adverse effect on sporting abilities.

    I took several Ericksonian hypnosis classes in my clinical program. One day, I was practicing self- hypnosis on a stationary bike at the gym. I fell off the bike. Be careful!

    i was hypnotized. The treatment consisted of five sessions. The first one was weird because i never really focused on relaxing. Laying there, my mind kept wandering and I would focus on things like keeping my eyes closed. By the fifth session I loved it because I felt so good afterwards. Definately worth it.

    I had a professor bring in a Hypnotist during finals week, and the experience was definitely beneficial! so much so I purchased numerous books on the subject, and began researching it. After the "session" in class, I truly felt refreshed and relaxed to a degree I have yet to experience again.

    I've also had experience with professional "stage hypnotists", and that was slightly negative. It was definitely a one-time thing, but one of the other volunteers had a panic attack, and the hypnotist spent the rest of the show trying to convince everyone that she didn't have anything to do with it, and that she can't be held legally responsible for anything that happened. It was an odd experience.

    As for hypnotism during excercise, I have never experienced that, but I can imagine it might lead to falling off the bike, like OW said, haha...might work though. Who knows unless you try it?
