Alan Jaeger walks David through an incredible guided meditation and shares the steps needed to properly prepare for a successful session. Alan founded Jaeger Sports on the principle that athletes need to develop both their physical and mental skills in order to be successful in game situations.

As a result of several years of coaching and and personal study was Alan's Mental Training Book, "Getting Focused, Staying Focused”. With a teachers training background in Yoga and practitioner of such Far Eastern Arts as Zen and Taoism, Alan's intention is to help athletes merge the "mechanics" of the Western athlete with the "insight" of the Far Eastern mind–to position athletes to best realize their potential on and off the playing field.
