When athletes are playing their best, it feels effortless and simple.
How does this happen and how can I get there?
Buddy Biancalana on the Zone Experience
In the 1985 World Series, as the Royals shortstop, I played the best baseball of my career. I had a zone experience in which everything slowed down, I wasn't thinking and my motion was fluid and effortless with excellent timing. My life since that time has been committed to discovering what happened in my mind in that Series, and more importantly, how to teach athletes and executives how to have that experience on a regular basis versus hoping it occurs, just by chance. I am passionate about helping others achieve this zone experience and locking it in.
Any athlete, when playing their best, describes the experience as 'everything slowing down, not thinking and with fluid, effortless motion and perfect timing.' When an athlete is in the Zone, studies show that their Pre Frontal Cortex is quiet, allowing the Basal Ganglia and Cerebellum uninterrupted access to sensory input and resulting in efficient, effective motion known as "the zone." It allows for a more alpha/theta brain wave state by working at the intersection of intention and execution/thought and action.
Independent studies and research have shown the following benefits of Zone Motion:
6. Average maximum heart rate reduction of 13.09% for hitters & 11.97% for pitchers.
My 16 years of teaching Zone Motion, plus research and independent studies, have proven that the Zone can be taught, resulting in quantum levels of performance improvement and expedited player development which has never been more important. I have taught the Zone to athletes in 13 professional and 20+amateur sports.
