RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE WHO:
Breath Enhancement Training is an important part of an athletes performance pathway, merging physical and mental realms together. It’s not only about how to breathe better, it’s about better self regulation, self confidence & attention skills, it’s about having something in your tool belt to deal better with expectations, pressures & challenges, plus the ability to persevere through critical moments, all those things that might falter when our heart rates are in that zone of discomfort. And let’s not forget, a teams collective performance & their ability to top the ladder is largely impacted by the ability of individual players to respond to & manage these challenges. In addition, the skills to re-set and recover effectively week after week, must be in place for consistency in performance in your chosen sport.
With many challenges faced in 2020 including the imposed travel ban, we were inspired to build a top quality virtual training studio which is now successfully incorporated in to many programs for time effective touch points & follow-ups.
If you’re an athlete or team interested in building a more solid performance foundation, what are you waiting for?! Let’s put in place a pathway that has you or your team stepping up and executing on practices better than ever before.
RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE WHO:
“When the pressure is on, do you step-up or struggle?”
BET workshops address the first behavioural component that is affected by pressure or stress – the breath, and once this foundational aspect of performance is strengthened, other components that contribute to peak performance can dramatically improve. Whether your performance is limited by mental or physical aspects, our experienced instructors share mental practices & physical drills that are easily applied, improving your competence in both. You’ll even witness a live demonstration showing the relationship between your state, breath & heart rhythms & how quickly they impact one another. It’s really eye opening & will encourage you to use the learnings for greater control of your physical, mental & emotional state, enhancing both your performance & your recovery.
* When we work with teams we include cues & strategies for coaches to incorporate in to training (if appropriate)
Breathing checks: to see if current patterns are helping or hindering your health & performance. This includes common mistakes to look out for & how to correct them.
Warm up protocols to maximise mental & physical performance: If you want to maximise your training gains or compete as your best self, you must learn the most effective ways to switch on and warm up your lungs & respiratory system. Without this in place you’ll struggle to find flow far longer than is necessary.
To calm the mind, body & nervous system: It’s no longer a secret that the best athletes know that energy is their currency & therefore recovery & sleep quality is crucial in ensuring higher quality training sessions and performance in a competitive environment. Learn how to switch from a stressed/intense state into a calm state quickly when the pressure is on, plus the importance of regularly shifting your nervous system from a ‘fight or flight’ state into a deep ‘healing state’ after stress.
Strategies to better manage the pressures of the season, both on and off the field: It’s important to recognise that to be a better athlete it helps to be a better human being first. Breath work is a foundational & timeless tool that lessens your daily experience of overwhelm, anxiety & stress so you can manage this space more effectively.

I'VE BEEN PUSHED OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE! “I've always loved learning from other athletes, and experts, especially when it comes to mental training - I've never really connected with traditional sports psychology. Working with Nam has been amazing, his approach is different, holistic and I've been pushed out of my comfort zone and challenged working on the breath, emotional regulation and clarity under pressure. Every session has been different and tailored to simulate race conditions or various elements of my sport and I can honestly say it's brought a new perspective and edge to my training and racing”
Jess Fox8 X World Champion Slalom Canoeist, Olympic Gold Medallist
NAM'S MENTORSHIP & TRAINING PROGRAM CONSTANTLY KEEPS ME ON MY TOES I have been working with Nam for close to 8 years now and started my journey pretty young at the age of 17, just an immature kid still finding my place in the world and in my career. Nam has had a huge impact on my life, influencing me to become the person I am today and inspiring me to constantly become a better version of myself. His mentorship and training program constantly keeps me on my toes with tasks that are designed to challenge me physically and mentally so far past what I thought was possible.
Cory Teunissen4 X World Champion Wakeboarding
BET ASSISTED ME GREATLY IN MY RECENT SUCCESS I was first introduced to Nam in 2017 by the WA Institute of Sport and ever since our first session together I knew Nam was going to be the one to help me take the next step in my career. I was starting to find my sailing boring and like a chore. Nam made me realise why I love the sport I do and has assisted me greatly in my recent success. His out of the box training sessions and ability to tailor those sessions to each specific athlete is incredible. I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today without his unwavering commitment to helping me be the person I am both in and out of competition.

THE COURSE WAS INCREDIBLE I just want to say the course on the weekend was incredible, myself, dad, olly and Jacko all learnt so much and have already been using some of the drills. Nam is so patient, supportive and understanding and I am just so grateful I could be apart of this so thank you for everything you and the team do! I’ll definitely be back.

WORKING WITH NAM OVER THE YEARS HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE Working with Nam over the years has been incredible. His enthusiasm to teach, learn and grow is second to none. He has an incredible talent to deliver his message that is easy to understand and practice. He helped me invigorate my second half of my career and capture my 3rd world title and we had lots of fun on the way.

I NOW HAVE SO MUCH MORE CONFIDENCE The training with Nam and Devon has made me aware of my breathing and I now have so much more confidence. My cardiovascular endurance also greatly benefited."

WE STARTED WITH BREATH ENHANCEMENT TRAINING AS THE FOUNDATION We brought Nam on board after identifying the importance of not only targeting the physical development of our team, but the mental skills required to be a well rounded elite athlete. The demands placed on footballers are continuing to increase, so having a true understanding of the mental side of the game is critical in achieving ultimate success. We started with Breath Enhancement Training as the foundation and Nam has continued to embed specific processes and skills within our program which are unique to our football club. This program & teachings have added balance to our football program in educating the mental skills and recovery for our athletes.

TRENT ROBINSONSydney Roosters Head Coach
EVERYTHING YOU TAUGHT US WAS SO RELEVANT AND INTERESTING Nam thank you for a brilliant training session last week at Sydney Uni. Everything you taught us was so relevant and interesting and has really set me up well to continue to practice and learn more. I did have a few questions but on reading the notes you sent us that covered everything - thank you so much! I’ll put the time into practicing for myself and gradually include more breathing techniques with the teams and people I work with.
LOU LOU STANLEYBET ATHLETES MAY 2019
LEARNT SO MUCH AND GAINED MORE RESPECT FOR HOW AND WHY WE BREATHE I learnt so much and within 4 hrs have gained more respect for how and why we breathe and how it can help me in and out of the water. I look forward to the 6 week training program as I feel this will help greatly with my Maui 2 Molokai paddle in July.
