Mental Fitness and Mind-Body Training
At Eagle Fustar we value mental fitness as much as we value physical fitness. We are excited to partner with 2Mynds, as we fully subscribe to the philosophy that mental fitness should be no different from physical fitness in that it requires training and repetitions. As of 2018, we will be offering highly discounted access to training programs in the 2Mynds platform as well as 2Mynds integrations in clinics, private lessons, and dedicated mind-body training sessions. Leon Bax, the founder and head coach at 2Mynds will be overseeing the integration at Eagle Fustar and will be supervising the specialty workshops and clinics as well as personal training sessions.

About 2Mynds and how it works
In February 2018, 2Mynds launched its online platform and mobile app. 2Mynds is a systematic approach to active mental fitness training. The idea is that mental fitness is largely based on skills, rather than knowledge alone. Simply knowing what to do under stress doesn’t mean that we possess the ability we need to optimize our performance. The transition from understanding something to actually doing it requires training. 2Mynds was developed to provide the tools to make mind-body training fun and accessible. It uses exercises founded in functional meditation and martial arts. Everything is accessible through either the online platform or the mobile app. You can use the links below to get the app for Android or iOS:
Everyone begins with a basic program or package, either independently or with guidance in a clinic, workshop, or personal training. The idea is that you first learn how to train via e-learning programs in the online platform. The guidance in clinics and personal training can optimize that learning. The approach is not so different from tennis training: after you learn how to do certain drills or play certain patterns, you need thousands of repetitions before you get anywhere. Similarly, the 2Mynds online platform teaches the drills and the 2Mynds app helps you get your reps in. After the basics you can customize your training based on needs and interests. See this blog post for more details about how to get started or pick the program that that suits you most.
Although 2Mynds is a system that all the coaches at Eagle Fustar will be trained in, the founder and head coach of 2Mynds, Leon Bax, will be supervising the implementation at Eagle Fustar. Leon has been a long-time guest at Eagle Fustar as a hitting partner for our top junior players so he’s a familiar face for many. He was involved in competitive judo and tennis at a very young age, He holds a national title in Judo and became a nationally ranked junior in the Netherlands. After playing D1 collegiate tennis on an athletic scholarship at UT San Antonio, he went back to the Netherlands and took a break from tennis. While pursuing an academic career as a medical scientist (he has two PhDs), he dedicated his physical and mental development to martial arts and meditative practices. He worked and trained in Japan for 8 years and in late 2016 he set out to develop a system to help athletes deal better with stress and optimizing their mind-body coordination. The fruit of that labor is 2Mynds, in which you will find a mix of Leon’s formal academic training in medical science and his expertise in meditation, martial arts, and movement.
