Topic: Think Like A Champion

Jim Fannin coaches champions. For 43-years he has helped over 2000 clients set personal, team and world records. “Jim Fannin knows the Zone! He helped me reach the Hall of Fame. I owe everything to Jim,” says former Chicago White Sox MVP Frank Thomas.

The champions Jim coaches think differently than everyone else. They think less and produce more. In fact, when two people have the same experience and talent, it is thinking like a champion that becomes the difference maker.

With masterful storytelling, proprietary knowledge and decades of experience of coaching the world’s best performers, Mr. Fannin will reveal the five intangibles all champions possess. They are Self-discipline, Concentration, Optimism, Relaxation and Enjoyment. Once these markers are balanced, the peak performance mindset called the Zone arrives. It is here that records are broken and dreams come true.

The Zone is NOT limited to superstar athletes. In fact, you will leave our September 21, 2017 event thinking like a champion with proven, concrete tools and techniques to insure these champion qualities are maximized.
