“I found that using neurofeedback allowed me to make changes in the way I worked that I didn’t believe were possible. I felt I could put myself in the state sports professionals describe as ‘in the Zone’. You are right there, entirely focused on the task, but also relaxed. The first time I managed it, I was negotiating a $100 M acquisition merger and I got so clear about what I had to do.”
Former CEO, Hillenbrand Industries
Quote from Jerome Byrne: "The Great Brain Train"
Financial Times (London): How to Spend It, 2/11/10
"Neurofeedback provided by the Peak Achievement Trainer confirmed in a number of ways to the World Champions and other elite world class performers, that what they were perceiving relative to their attention distribution and arousal control was in fact, accurate and productively contributing to their performance.
This, in fact, further enhances their self confidence and encourages them to continue down the psychological pathways outlined. Moreover, it highlighted areas in the performance dynamic where they suspected that they had “fallen short” and subsequently, they attacked these issues with commitment and energy.
When it is part of a sport psychologist’s tools of trade to illustrate quality and distribution of focus, fluctuations in arousal level/alertness in behavioral and sport specific performance terms, the PAT provides a clear, visible and immediate representation of these psychological factors and performance correlates. The clarity of this representation is invaluable to both the athlete and the consultant psychologist as both an evaluative and educational tool."

I have used the Peak Achievement Trainer for about 2 years in my counseling and neurofeedback practice with a variety of patients, whose challenges range from ADHD to optimal athletic performance. Although I utilize other tools, strategies, hardware and software, the most effective by far has been the Peak Achievement Trainer. It also happens to be the program with which most of my clients prefer to train. I have used the PAT with an NFL quarterback to refine focus, establishing and refining an alert focus during plays and reinforcing microbreaks during huddles and sideline time. This technique has allowed him to have the most productive and effective year of his 9 year career. He continues to function well and endorses football being fun again.
I continue to be amazed at the power of this program and am excited about the developments and advancements in this dynamic software.

"Training with the PAT has been going very well. One of my young players Kristie Smith won in Australia last week against a class field and mentioned the PAT on the Australian Ladies Professional Golf website last week. Most of my players are really enjoying the benefits of understanding themselves better and what they need to improve.
I haven't told you but the PAT will be getting unbelievable coverage in Korea because J Golf , the major Korean TV station (similar to the Golf Channel) came and did a full week videoing me training the US Womens Open winner, Eun Hee Ji. These guys were as we say in Australia " all over it " I did a session with her on the range training with the PAT.......So all good thank you."

When Jon Cowan arrived with the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer, I was greatly distressed because of no less than three catastrophes, personal and professional, I was striving to resolve. Jon had gone out of his way to make the appointment and so I did not abort it. I am pleased that I did not. The level of attention required was well worth it. I found myself tuning into parts of my mind/body that had grown fallow. The demonstration was a long one but it did not seem that so much time had passed. When it was over, I felt rejuvenated and ended the day in a good mood. The happiness that emerged from that session has never left me, and I go back to some of the self-monitoring techniques I used during the session to keep me contented, alert, and positive during each day. [This was written 10 days after the demonstration.]

I was feeling down in the dumps, overwhelmed by thinking about a number of troubling situations. I decided to do an Excited Happiness session. Just a few minutes after I started the 25-minute session, I was feeling quite cheerful and my troubles had faded into the background. It lasted for the rest of the day. The next day, I trained with the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer for just 15 minutes and although I was cognitively aware of my troubling problems, they had no emotional effect on me. I remained happy and a bit excited. Again, it lasted the entire day. How wonderful!

"Some athletes and performance gurus trying to get their heads "in the zone" swear by a device called the Peak Achievement Trainer® that conceals a band of sensors inside an ordinary-looking visor, allowing you to get brain wave data while touching up your PowerPoint presentation or working on your putting stroke.
Best-selling author, "Mind Wide Open"
in MSN Slate
"The Peak Achievement Trainer® is a brilliant and promising new approach to neurofeedback. Coupled with Jonathan D. Cowan's InAll protocol, it's a tremendous system. The manual that comes with the unit is clear and well-written, helping the user get the most out of the equipment. The Peak Achievement Trainer® is a tremendous way to aid concentration and focus."

"As the Strength and Conditioning Coach for a professional baseball team, I am constantly looking for ways to help my athletes increase their performance on the field. Most of my work is usually done below neck level, with the occasional attempt at improving psyche by use of encouraging words. Recently, I had the opportunity to work with a product known as the Peak Achievement Trainer®. This product has the capability to help your athletes develop and train one of the most powerful tools at our disposal, their ability to concentrate effectively. The Peak Achievement Trainer® shows an athlete through a PC and easy to use software what it means to concentrate and relax. Helping an athlete understand how to concentrate may allow them easier access to the ‘zone’, that area of performance where every pitch looks as big as a grapefruit moving in slow motion. I would encourage anyone who is interested in helping with an athlete’s performance to look at the Peak Achievement Trainer® and see for yourself what it has to offer."

"The Peak Achievement Trainer® helps athletes develop the mental discipline that every true champion needs. I truly believe that if you want to move your team up a few places next year, this is an approach that can do it for you. We all know how difficult it is to keep many high school players consistently focused, especially when they are fatigued. There are many times when this can make the difference in a game. Since training an athlete to focus can also improve his grades, this type of practice can be done as a part of their academic program."

"I personally like working with it better than the Lubar protocol. The kids love it. It has the best validity of any neurofeedback approach."

"We began using the Peak Achievement Trainer® as part of our School based Neurofeedback program in the spring of 2000. The children responded favorably to the training and my staff was pleased with the ease of using the equipment. I recommend this tool as an adjunct along with the other modalities that we use in our schools."

"It's a great human resources tool. It created an opportunity to provide something pre-emptive with a positive, rather than a negative or critical, approach to seeking improved employee performance. It opened channels of communication for better supervisor-employee relations."

One of our customers, Mr. Charles Holden, decided to use the Microbreak tapes with his middle school behavior disorder class. He had spectacular results. Their behavior improved immediately and they became more productive. He wrote two letters documenting the success and one after the use was stopped by the principal (Ms. Jennifer Colley) and the Director of Special Education (Dr, Sharon Davis) of the Jefferson County Public Schools (Louisville, Kentucky). To our knowledge, they never explained why they stopped such a promising program. The letters are reproduced here with Mr. Holden's permission.

For the first time since I started working with the Peak Achievement Trainer I played a full round of golf. I was really pleased when I played 27 holes last Wednesday, scored four under par, and didn't make bogey all day. I had used the Peak Achievement Trainer mostly when I practiced my putting, and it made a difference on the course. What I notice is that I become so focused on seeing the ball go into the hole that I feel like my putting stroke goes on auto pilot.
About four years ago I decided to completely change almost all aspects in my game to become a better player and teacher, but as I was changing I lost my confidence and my mind became very busy on the course. Since I have worked with the Peak Achievement program I have a lot less interference going through my mind. I feel more focused on a single point, calmer, and definitely a lot more composed and confident on the golf course.

"A year ago I broke my back in a diving accident. For 3-4 months I was unable to train for competition. Then I discovered the Peak Achievement Trainer® and used it to enhance my mental training (visualization) in place of the physical training in the pool. Five weeks later, after only a couple weeks in the water, I returned to competition and got to the finals (a comeback like that is unheard of in Big 12 competition following an injury of that severity). A week later I won the biggest diving meet in Texas and two months later I won the Big 12 Conference championships in diving. There is no question in my mind that the Peak Achievement Training® made it possible for me to return to competition quicker and it allowed me to increase my national ranking (not lose it) despite several months of the debilitating injury rehabilitation. In addition, I was able to block out the pain that naturally occurs during competition. I would not have had this success without using the Peak Achievement Trainer®."

"By staying really focused, I have recently been swimming faster in my workouts than I ever have before. The 400 meter freestyle is a race that hurts. When I look back, I remember my best races being races that didn't really hurt. I believe I was in what people refer to as ‘the Zone’. With the Peak Achievement Training® system, I've been able to capture this ‘Zone’ and maintain my concentration level through the pain. Another area I've seen vast improvement in is during workouts. I've been able to avoid ‘negative’ thoughts. Workouts can become monotonous at times and your mind can wander. The Peak Achievement Training® system has enabled me to avoid those lapses during workout and has helped me to feel good about my workouts. Overall, my temperament is great. I feel calm and content even when things aren't going my way."
Chad Carvin, United States Silver Medalist,

"The bottom line for me is that Peak Achievement Training® is effective, and it is more effective than any other counseling or medication I have ever seen."

"Through using the Peak Achievement Trainer® now, I'm able to focus better, able to concentrate better. If I'm on the telephone, for instance, I can cut out 15 or 20 of the things that normally go on in my mind or your mind, and I'm able to focus on exactly what that individual is talking about. Now the Peak Achievement Trainer® has become a part of my weekly routine... This has been a wonderful experience for me, and I am very, very committed to continuing to use the Peak Achievement Trainer® in the future."
Neil Kuvin, CEO

"I learned to train myself to relax during moments of intense stress and anxiety, and then direct my focus and concentration on the priority matters requiring my immediate attention. The value of this training was impressed on me a few months later when I took a professional skills test ... This [training] enabled me to eliminate the distracting thoughts and relax, which enabled me to concentrate and pass the test. As a result, I was offered a position which clearly advanced me toward my professional goals."
