Athletes and musicians have the same challenge; how to actualize the body in service of the mind and the heart. This beautiful quest has driven me; the goal being to change lives, to serve towards the actualization of each individual, to help them to manifest their potential. Wiring their mind in performance, learning the body connection specific to themselves, and connecting the two as a beautiful, flowing, and powerful barrage from Eric Clapton’s guitar.
There is a similar wire walk occurring between both the musician and the athlete. The musician has to have complete physical freedom in order to let the passion fly freely and express THROUGH, and yet technique is precision often mistaken for CONTROL.
Developing and creating customized programs for clients over the last quarter century,some of the aspects of Jon’s unique system include: Training to Rebuild and Sustain, Performance Body Control, Release and Usage Techniques, Re-Wiring of Muscle Firing, Injury Rehabilitation, Injury Prevention, Flexibility/Range-of-Motion Improvement, Strength Building and Mental Conditioning to enhance complete performance.
Jon’s program includes interesting elements to enhance performance for performing artists in the following areas. Physical Release: When things are at stake(scouts at the game, audition for a dancer, etc) the body needs to have an optimum mixture of total freedom and total control/precision- which often gets turned into tension and negatively impacts freedom unless you learn how to RELEASE what is responding on a survival mode muscularly while at the same time activating whats needed- its a hugely mental re-wiring and turns into physical freedom
Performance Intensity training: Jon has workouts which challenge through mimicking the state of such intensity and then in those moments we practice sustaining the work but becoming conscious of what is arising physically and re-wiring our body’s response in those moments by consciously breathing etc
Performance Anxiety/Self Doubt: Then theres the area of self doubt and limitations self-imposed, say a girl who has ideas of what she can and cant do (maybe on a tennis court, or show jumping, or ballet or soccer specific), and may also be prone to an eating disorder issue- by teaching her HOW to break through the limitations and sculpting work specifically towards giving her the skills to make that specific breakthrough, we can then pay it forward to address the other challenge and in so doing self-actualize her, teach her that there are no limitations for her- only adjustments, grow her self-esteem and mentally re-condition her confidence, discipline and approach to future challenges, and now we have built a well of trust between us and she knows she has an ally to help her take that to the next challenge and the next level.
These elements of training along with a super fun workout make Jon Geiger “The Game Changer”
In addition to working out of facilities, Jon offers convenience for the working performer by making available complete services at studios, sets as well as in- home and Skype sessions – saving valuable time while still making all possibilities for comprehensive sessions available for the working artist and/or organization.
