Student-Athlete Profile

In order to set myself apart to make myself better as an individual athlete, I mentally train as often, if not more, than I physically practice and exercise my
body outside of the rink. My coach once wisely said, 'Skating, like any other sport, is 99% mental and 1% physical.' This notion has since then been
prominently implanted in my mind to which I have made a foundation to build my skating career upon. A couple of my favorite books that I turn to for mental preparation include: The Secret (Byrne) and Mind Gym: An Athlete's Guide to Inner Excellence (Mack). These excellent reads have contributed to my mental strength both in skating and in my personal life. I cannot stress how important the behind the scenes work has been in trusting my physical abilities when nerves run high during competitions.” -Cynthia
