Itzik Zur, Ph.D.
As an experienced Karate athlete and a soccer goalkeeper, I was drawn to learn more about the human dynamics that affect performance. I have extensive hands-on experience working with young athletes, top-notch athletes, and business clientele from a diversity of backgrounds, cultures, skill levels, and ages.
My Ph.D. research focused on studying how emotions are associated with athletic skill execution. I believe that educating people on how to be mindful of their emotions and how to manage and channel them during a peak performance environment is a critical factor in performance enhancement.
I implement a range of methods including emotional control strategies, performance profiling, visualization, performance development, bio-feedback training, attention control training, routine development, goal setting, assessments, and more.
I teach my clients to improve their mental strength and gain a quiet, non-judgmental mindset to maximize their potential. Overall, I have worked with roughly 100+ athletes, with many of them reporting noticeable improvement in their performance, mental ability, and well-being.
In addition, I serve as an adjunct assistant professor at the Bronx Community College and Lehman College at the Department of Health and Physical Education.
I hope to have the opportunity to work with you.
