Pittsburgh?s Mental Training Expert, Dan Vitchoff Unveils The 33 MethodTM Original Mind Gym at the 2011 National Coaching Conference in Colorado Springs

Pittsburgh’s Mental Training Expert, Dan Vitchoff Unveils The 33 MethodTM Original Mind Gym at the 2011 National Coaching Conference in Colorado Springs











Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) July 06, 2011

As proof of the power of mental training, Pittsburgh’s own Dan Vitchoff stood proud as his athletes, Jeff Holguin, Joshua Richmond and Glenn Eller won the Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals respectively at the 2011 Men’s Double Trap National Championship in Colorado Springs. In addition to dominating the Men’s Double Trap Championships, Vincent Hancock won Gold at the 2011 Men’s Skeet National Championships securing a total of 4 out of 9 medals for Vitchoff’s athletes. The National Championships were taking place at the same time as the 2011 National Coaching Conference where Vitchoff unveiled the newest and most highly anticipated innovation in mental training and sports psychology, The Original Mind Gym.

Vitchoff’s 33 MethodTM Mental Training and Performance Coaching techniques drew National and International Media attention after being used by Vincent Hancock and Glenn Eller to win Gold Medals in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China. The 33 MethodTM is a unique combination of sports psychology, mental training, hypnosis, visualization and imagery paired with specific types of soothing music and brain wave technology to help athletes, entertainers and business executives focus their mental energy.

Dan Vitchoff explains, “When competing on such a high level, such as the Olympics, mental training is the one thing that can help an athlete gain the competitive edge. Once you get to that level, they’re so highly skilled and trained physically, however, the variables that can occur during competition such as wind, rain and intense pressure can directly impact an athletes’ performance. My athletes go into competition prepared for any situation that may occur they have prepared themselves mentally for wind, rain, noise and high pressure situations. I’m very proud of my athletes, but they also understand that this is where we expect them to be, our goal is to always be on the podium.”

Vitchoff recognizes that whether competing on the local little league baseball team or shooting for an Olympic Gold Medal, the athletes that are the most mentally prepared for competition will excel. Throughout his years of experience in working with athletes, it has become abundantly clear to him that most athletes had a physical location where they could train their bodies such as a gym or physical training facility and even more specifically; baseball players train on the field and in the batting cages, shooters train on the range, swimmers train in the pool but there was no place specifically where they could go to train their minds. Vitchoff’s Original Mind Gym provides athletes, entertainers and business executives with a physical location where they can go train their minds as often and with as much or more precision than they use to train their bodies.

The Original Mind Gym offers the ultimate experience of physical and mental relaxation and can be customized for each user based on their specific needs. Vitchoff completes a thorough consultation and evaluation with each of his athletes to determine, how their minds work, whether they are more, visual, kinesthetic or auditory and he uses the information that the collects to create a personalized Mind Gym that is just as unique as they are.

Dan Vitchoff, MS Ed., CHt. Board Certified and Licensed Hypnotherapist, is a highly sought Mental Training and Performance Coach, who works with US Olympic Gold Medalists. Vitchoff’s methods help these elite athletes prepare for the most intense competition in the world and are the same methods and techniques used at his Pittsburgh Hypnosis Center (PA Hypnosis Center) to help clients reach their goals.

Mental Training Expert, Dan Vitchoff Offers Insight into the Mental Preparations Required for the Pittsburgh Steelers to win their 7th Super Bowl

Mental Training Expert, Dan Vitchoff Offers Insight into the Mental Preparations Required for the Pittsburgh Steelers to win their 7th Super Bowl











Warrendale, PA (PRWEB) February 4, 2011

As the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for their 7th Super Bowl victory, Pittsburgh Steelers fans will be analyzing the physical strengths of their favorite players such as Ben Roethlisberger’s ability to break out of the pocket and make big plays even under pressure or Mike Wallace’s speed that enables him to beat any teams’ secondary defense down the field. The first thing that comes to a fan’s mind about whether or not their team will win the Super Bowl is often about the physical element of the game when in reality the mental aspect of the game is just as important if not more important than a player’s physical strengths and weaknesses.

Dan Vitchoff, MS Ed., CHt., Pittsburgh’s leading expert on Mental Training, Performance Coaching, and Sports Psychology points out that sophisticated fitness training, better medical care, and a variety of other factors combine to minimize the physical differences in one sports team over another. “With as many well trained, talented athletes as are competing today in every sport, the difference maker is often which athlete or which team has the best mental training and preparation for competition. In the NFL, when a team loses it is often due to mental mistakes such as penalties and turn over’s.”

The term any given Sunday has been coined to acknowledge the fact that any team can beat any team on any given Sunday. Professional Athletes such as the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers have to have the ability to make big plays even under intense pressure which is a result of intense mental training and preparations. Vitchoff, founder of the PA Hypnosis Center, and the mental coach who has helped Olympians, Walton Glenn Eller and Vincent Hancock win gold medals, says the Steelers’ mental preparation is critical to whether or not they will win their 7th Super Bowl. Vitchoff’s 33 MethodTM encompasses techniques such as Hypnosis, NLP, Visualization and Imagery which are all key components that Professional and Olympic Athletes use to prepare for competition. Vitchoff also uses these methods and techniques in his Pittsburgh Hypnosis Center to help his clients make positive and permanent changes in their lives such as losing weight, quitting smoking, reducing stress and improving their lives both personally and professionally.

“Confidence will need to be high in the huddle when the Pittsburgh Steelers Offense takes the field. These players have executed each and every play flawlessly a million times in their head. Visualizing yourself achieving success is key in Mental Training whether you are winning the Super Bowl or ending your smoking addiction.” Dan Vitchoff adds that another key to winning will come out of the fact that the Steelers have many veteran players on their team that have won the Super Bowl in the past and they can call on that experience in their mental preparations for Super Bowl XLV. Roethlisberger’s Mental Training, according to Vitchoff, helps him make tremendous plays under pressure, like when he put together a two-minute drive under intense pressure to win Super Bowl XLIII. Vitchoff explains, “Here at the PA Hypnosis Center, we use the same techniques with our gold medalists and other successful performance athletes, as we use with anyone who comes here to lose weight, quit smoking, or reduce stress and anxiety.”

As proof of the power of hypnosis and mental training, Dan Vitchoff, and Catherine Dolgos, a Certified Consulting Hypnotherapist and Fitness and Nutrition Specialist at the PA Hypnosis Center, frequently cite two similar success stories of their clients. Dona W. walked into PA Hypnosis Center with a goal to lose 100 pounds in August of 2008 and now in February, 2011 she is proud to have lost over 96 pounds. She explains, “I feel wonderful, I am a much healthier person now in mind, body and spirit thanks to PA Hypnosis Center.” In her battle with her weight, Dona is a champion.

Using the same type of techniques that helped Dona Webber claim victory, on a very different stage, Vincent Hancock turned to Dan Vitchoff’s Mental Training and Conditioning techniques to help him to quell his typical nervousness and beat out Norway’s Tore Brovold in an intense shoot out for the gold medal during the 2008 Olympic Summer Games, Men’s Skeet competition. Hancock and Brovold, the only two competitors in the world to post perfect scores in international skeet competitions, were tied after the final series. Hancock stayed calm, hitting his targets, while Brovold, sweating profusely, missed his target and wound up settling for the silver medal. Nineteen year old Vincent Hancock, by his own admission tends to be a jittery person and his ability to remain confident and relaxed was a direct result of the Mental Training and Preparations that he did with Dan Vitchoff. Dan Vitchoff explains, “Whether it’s the Super Bowl, the Olympics, or a battle for your life over obesity and health concerns, the stakes are high. Visualization, mental coaching, and hypnosis are the competitive edge and the difference between victory and failure.”

Dan Vitchoff, MS Ed., CHt. Board Certified and Licensed Hypnotherapist, is a highly sought Mental Training and Performance Coach, who works with US Olympic Gold Medalists. Vitchoff’s methods help these elite athletes prepare for the most intense competition in the world and are the same methods and techniques used at his Pittsburgh Hypnosis Center (PA Hypnosis Center) to help clients reach their goals.

What Did it Take to Kill Osama Bin Laden? Seconds or Hours? Pittsburgh Mental Coach Dan Vitchoff Offers Insight as Related to his Work with Olympic Gold Medal Shooters

What Did it Take to Kill Osama Bin Laden? Seconds or Hours? Pittsburgh Mental Coach Dan Vitchoff Offers Insight as Related to his Work with Olympic Gold Medal Shooters










Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) May 11, 2011

Dan Vitchoff of Pittsburgh, PA may be able to shed some light on this topic. Vitchoff knows a bit about the training, concentration and timing it takes to fire off accurate shots while under pressure. He is the mental coach for United States Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) who won the U.S.A. two Gold medals at the 2008 Olympics. There is no doubt in Vitchoff’s mind that the shots that killed Osama Bin Laden were fired by well trained mentally alert, mentally strong and physically prepared shooters whose training included technique and various mental aspects for their mission. The mission that killed Osama Bin Laden was not the Olympics. Vitchoff is quick to state, “There was danger and much more than aim and shoot in the Bin Laden kill; however there are similar elements of mental training that must come in to play when human beings are faced with performing under pressure.”    This Pittsburgher, founder of “The 33 Method” emphasizes that intense and repeated mental training is as important as technical training.

When Vitchoff works with some of the elite marksmen who train American soldiers for combat and are also Olympic athletes he uses his proprietary program “The 33 Method” which incorporates a variety of mental and psychological techniques. . Vitchoff’s work with the USAMU, members of the U.S.A Shooting Team is the basis of his comments and expert opinion about what took place seconds before the shots that killed Bin Laden as well as his certainty about the type of training needed. Vitchoff shares his knowledge of tremendous concentration, the emotional and mental reaction and accuracy of shots in a pressure filled situation. Since the shooters, who were trained with Vitchoff’s 33 Method, brought home Gold Medals from the 2008 Olympics, Vitchoff has shared some of the techniques he used with the shooters. Vitchoff trained the minds of the shooters for split second, 100% accurate shots similar to what may have been used by the Navy Seals who brought down Bin Laden. When training the shooters, this international mental coach emphasizes preparing the mind, training the mind, testing the mind and mental practice. So how many seconds did it take to aim shoot and kill Bin Laden? Baswed on his extensive experience in working with some of the world’s best shooters, Vitchoff’s answer is, “ Pre-mission is in hours not seconds. They program their minds on how to respond to hundreds of scenarios and thousands of minutes.” Vitchoff’s guess on the actual shots that killed Osama Bin Laden, “I would guess 2 seconds which takes into consideration the mental training that had already come into play relative to reacting to whatever prompted the actual shots. This does not mean that it only took two seconds to process the entire action. It means that these special, highly trained individuals were so well practiced both mentally and physically that the average person can hardly calculate the millisecond processing of every aspect of their surroundings.”

As with the details behind the Navy Seals mission in Pakistan, Vitchoff’s “33 Method” is a chocked full of proprietary secrets that lead to success under pressure. As the owner and lead practitioner of the PA Hypnosis Center, Vitchoff’s diverse skills for reprogramming the mind are used to help Pittsburghers and people from around the world to make healthy changes in their lives. His belief and practice exemplifies the old adages 1)“it’s all in your head” and 2)“ the game is 40% physical and 60% mental. Whether it’s shooting, weight loss, smoking cessation, athletic performance or anxiety control, Vitchoff helps people prepare their minds for challenges that range from intense situations like what the Navy Seals have just accomplished to the challenges of making personal changes. Because the sub-conscious mind plays an integral role in human actions and reaction the programming for success in all situations is a matter or discipline and training.

Local Hypnotist, Dan Vitchoff helps Pittsburgh Area Residents Conquer Food Addiction with a Gold Medal Mindset

Local Hypnotist, Dan Vitchoff helps Pittsburgh Area Residents Conquer Food Addiction with a Gold Medal Mindset












Warrendale, PA (PRWEB) April 15, 2011

There are two things that are always on Dan Vitchoff’s mind, helping his athletes prepare for the Olympics and helping his clients achieve great personal success with hypnosis. Dan Vitchoff is a Board Certified and Licensed Hypnotherapist, Mental Training and Performance Coach and President of PA Hypnosis Center. He is also founder of the Nationally Acclaimed sports improvement technique, The 33 MethodTM.

Already known for his success helping Olympians Walton Glenn Eller and Vincent Hancock win Gold at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Vitchoff and his athletes have their sights set on London in 2012. Staff Sgt. Josh Richmond has now exceeded the threshold required to be nominated to the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team for the Summer Olympics in London. In a recent interview with Michael Molinaro of the US Army Marksmanship Richmond explains, “It is an unbelievable feeling knowing that I have successfully reached the line in the sand. This has been a long time coming for me since I was a competitor in the last selection process coming up just short for the 2008 team.” Richmond further states, he has, “gained the confidence and knowledge to overcome the pressures of competing on the international level.” Richmond credits much of his success to his family and his coaches among them, Dan Vitchoff, whom Richmond says, “has had their own foot print in my success and will continue to train me until we reach our ultimate goal of an Olympic Gold Medal.”

Vitchoff explains, “When helping my athletes prepare for competition, everything counts, we prepare for everything, weather, crowd noise, distractions; I take the same approach with my food addiction clients in my office. I look at their lives and help them prepare for success no matter what personal challenges they are facing. I help them reduce stress and change their perspective on themselves, their lives and the world around them so they can take back control over their lives and develop a healthy relationship with food.” Carrie Ann Johnson is an RN who has been working with Dan Vitchoff to help her gain greater control over her eating habits and behaviors. Carrie says, “I’ve always been the person who had to be first in line for the cookies, sweets and cakes and after my first session I no longer had any cravings or desire to eat those foods. The big test for me was being at our annual Christmas party with four trays of delicious Christmas cookies and I did not have one! For the first time in my life I was able to say, ‘Wow! Those look good and walk away’.” Sue Knox shared a similar experience, she was able to get through the Holidays with no pies or sweets; she had even tried hypnosis before with someone else and elaborates, “I had gone through this (hypnosis) before with someone else and it didn’t work but I thought I would try again with someone new, someone different and working with Dan Vitchoff has been a completely different experience for me. I have lost over 30 pounds but even more importantly are the inches…I have lost over 22 inches! This is the least that I have weighed in 30 years! Everyone says, you look wonderful and I feel wonderful!”

If you have the opportunity to sit down and talk to Dan Vitchoff he would talk to you about how some people develop an emotional attachment to food from the time that they are infants and that bond grows stronger as they progress though their teenage years into adulthood. “For some people eating is a substitute for either an identified or unidentified emotional need. We hear it all of the time, people come in and say, ‘I eat when I’m stressed; I eat when I’m anxious, I eat when I’m not hungry. ‘Typically foods such as sugars, sweets and carbohydrates trigger a response of relaxation and being rewarded thus the cycle of emotional eating that can lead to food addiction. Our weight loss hypnosis programs are designed to help our clients effectively break the bond between food and emotions.”

Pittsburgh radio personality, “Bubba” had been struggling with his weight off and on throughout most of his life. Just as he would start to lose weight life would get in the way and it would start to come back on. Bubba chose to work with Pittsburgh’s Dan Vitchoff because of his reputation and success in working with US Olympic Athletes and because he offers a 98% Success Guarantee with his hypnosis weight loss and smoking cessation programs. Bubba shares his experience with Pittsburgh’s Star 100.7 listeners on the radio, “I have tried to lose weight over the past three years, I tried everything and nothing worked, now 27 pounds later, I am part of Dan Vitchoff’s 98% Success Guarantee and his 33 Method is amazing. It works if you want to lose weight or stop smoking or if you’re struggling with anxiety and many other challenges.”

Dan Vitchoff, MS Ed., CHt., a Board Certified and Licensed Hypnotherapist, and President of PA Hypnosis Center in Pittsburgh can individualize a hypnosis program to help his clients address the following areas: weight loss, stop smoking, reduce stress & anxiety, overcoming fears, phobias and insomnia, building self confidence, public speaking and sports performance.
