Mind gym Mind gym is a book written by Gary Mack with David Casstevens. This book talks about the importance of preparing the mind before indulging in any sports activity. However, this depends with the type of motivation and performance. I found find this book interesting because it relates to my field as an athlete. I must prepare my mind before joining any race. During this week, my weekly goal will depend on the set targets. I must try and do a three hour exercise which include jogging and yoga. Hurry slowly: this chapter talks about being fast in everything you do though very careful. However, the author’s main message states that an athlete should be very careful in whatever he/she does.

The bottom line is a chapter that encourages perfection. The author states that an individual should draw a bottom line for him/herself.
