Nazareth Academy Activates for Success

  In my years working with the Nazareth football team, I have seen for myself the tangible results that Self Activation Technique has had on the whole team. A recent article at Bergsworld.live tells the story. This technique is a true game-changer.      Read the Article...

Here’s how one runner beat his personal records – one belly breath at a time.

I never grow tired of hearing real-life stories about the immediate difference SAT techniques produce. I asked student athlete Dan Santino, from St. Ignatius High School in Chicago, to share his experience with SAT in his own words.   “This fall, I was really excited to run my senior season of cross county. I even set a goal of earning my first All-State honor. The season started off pretty well, but my performance at times seemed to plateau. Maybe it was a combination of muscle soreness in my back and just needing to get to the next level, but I didn’t quite know how to improve. After investigating the SAT process, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Tom. Looking back, I was skeptical for sure, but was willing to try anything for the sake of improvement. I distinctly remember the muscle-testing results before activation, and then seeing them after. Immediately after activation, I felt loose. There was no tightness, and I felt peaceful after “belly breathing.” The next day we had an invitational race, and I felt the best and was the most focused during that race. I ended up finishing 5th, right behind some of the nation’s best runners, 7 seconds off my personal best. I became a believer as the results were seen immediately for me! As the season progressed with activation and SAT, I gutted out some races and achieved personal records to include Chicago Catholic League Champion, IHSA Regional Champion, and finally I earned my first All-State honor in cross country, placing 24th at the state meet. Activation techniques will be a constant part of my routine from now on.” How is activation a part of your routine? Let us know in the...

Talkin’ Douglas Heel

Douglas Heel, the man behind “Get-Activated”  is interviewed in this article. Douglas Heel exudes a bouncy enthusiasm and an unshakable confidence.  His confidence is never I’m right, and you are wrong.  In matter of fact, Douglas is as carefree as he is confident.  At his last Chicago seminar, Heel said, “Don’t worry about being right.  As soon as you are right, you stop learning.  I have techniques, not answers.  My journey is just beginning.” Read The...

You Only Know What You Know

Activation is not just for Football Players.  A recent article in the Illinois Track and Cross Country Coaches Association discusses the benefits.  Once again Dr. Tom Nelson is featured and quoted. Read The...
Before activation, I found myself injury prone as well as very inconsistent during my practices for track/cross country. I suffered from inconsistent practices and pained muscles and joints, but after one session of activation with Dr.Tom, I felt brand new, refreshed and explosive. I went from not qualifying for top seven my first cross country season to being the #1 runner the following year for both seasons, being an individual state qualifier and school record holder for the 1600-3200. Activation has truly changed the way I run and compete and it’s a great tool for any athlete. I activate every day before anything I do, whether it’s mental or physical.
