WHAT TO EXPECT
Playing in the zone is considered the peak tennis experience, and you probably came to this site because you are interested in finding out more about the zone and how to experience your own Peak Performance State.
At the same time, you’re probably unsure of what to expect from the Parallel Mode Process.
So here are a few things to look for along the way.
INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR
First of all, playing tennis in the zone requires you to switch from your normal mode of operation on the tennis court – called a Serial Mode – to your most efficient and accurate mode of operation – called a Parallel Mode.
The change from a Serial Mode to a Parallel Mode is all about the exteriorchange required for your Peak Performance State, so the first thing you can expect is a change in the way you use your eyes, your brain, and your body on the tennis court.
But this change in your exterior operating mode brings with it a change in your interior state of consciousness; a change from your normal conscious state to a higher-order conscious state known in sports psychology as a flow state.
So you can expect and experience that is very different both on the outside and on the inside. Your Parallel Mode of operation is very different from your Serial Mode of operation, and a flow state of consciousness is very different from your normal state of consciousness.
In other words, everything about playing tennis in the zone is different from playing tennis in the norm, including the level of your play, and that’s where you can expect to see a major difference.
It’s not called your “Peak Performance State” for nothing!
And when you switch from your Serial Mode to your Parallel Mode, you can expect to experience your Peak Performance State with its more efficient and accurate exterior mode of operation and its higher-order interior state of consciousness.
We’ve broken the Parallel Mode Process down into three phases:
Phase 1. Getting into the zone
Phase 2. Maintaining the zone
Phase 3. Competing in the zone
The logic is straight-forward: Phase 1 is all about getting into the zone in the first place; Phase 2 is about maintaining the zone once you’re there; and Phase 3 involves competing in your Peak Performance State.
The individual Steps in each of these 3 Phases are designed to guide you through a process that will show you how to play tennis in the zone.
And it all starts with learning how to make the switch from playing in your Serial Mode to playing in your Parallel Mode.
The Steps of the Parallel Mode Process are on-court exercises that will show you exactly what you need to do with your eyes, your brain, and your body to switch from your Serial Mode to your Parallel Mode.
And once you make the switch to your Parallel Mode, you will experience your Peak Performance State.
That’s right. Guaranteed.
Here’s our guarantee: if you do the Steps exactly as they are explained, you will experience the zone.
I’ve taught thousands of tennis players how to get in the zone using the Parallel Mode Process and never has a player failed to experience their Peak Performance State when they have successfully made the switch from playing in their Serial Mode to playing in their Parallel Mode.
The only reason players don’t get into the zone is because they won’tstop playing in their Serial Mode and start playing in their Parallel Mode.
It’s really that simple. Make the switch to playing in your Parallel Mode and you will experience the zone. Keep playing in your Serial Mode and you will not experience the zone.
The choice is yours.
The Parallel Mode Process is designed to give you that choice.
