Peter Guare is a Personal Performance Coach who assisted Mike Tamul (and others) to impressively improve his track performances. Notice the many uses for EFT in this article.

By Peter Guare

I'm a Personal Performance Coach making the transition from a Head Track Coach. Although I no longer get paid, I still help out with the program. Mike Tamul is a wonderful young man and one of the nicest I've ever worked with. I was working with him and some other hurdlers and showed them how to improve their flexibility (a must for hurdlers).

We used the "Even though I have this tension in my back and legs" setup phrase and then tapped on "tension in the muscles" "tension in the joints" "tension in the fascia" "tension in the ligaments" etc. When everyone improved markedly, they became converts. But Mike really heeded my advice to use it for everything, from making his trail leg faster in the hurdles to reducing pain and fatigue in the 1500 meters, an event in the pentathlon. I'll let him tell the rest of the story.

"My senior year is where I really began to excel. Mr. Guare went out of his way to help me, and that he sure did accomplish. He taught me his tapping technique that could be used anywhere at anytime, and could really help you not only in Track, but in many areas of life.

This technique brought a new level of focus to me and increased my flexibility quickly. After only a week or two of using this technique, I found myself at an Invitational sporting ugly weather. Before all of my races, I used the tapping technique, and I focused on winning. That meet I accomplished something I had never done before, I won three gold medals. All the while Mr. Guare also helped me tremendously with my hurdle form.

I became a Sectional Champion in the 110 Meter High Hurdles with the help of Mr. Guare. The whole season we had actually been training Hurdles for the Pentathlon that I would hope to compete in at the NYS Championship meet. Mr. Guare helped me so much with hurdles that it improved my time enough to add enough points to my Pentathlon score to break the School record for the pentathlon.

My score allowed me to compete at the state meet, and I placed 5th at States in the Pentathlon and couldn't have done it without Mr. Guare. The thing is, all the while I was using the tapping and steadily improving. Mr. Guare's techniques helped me gain a winning mentality. I was eventually able to use the tapping technique mentally during my 1500 race in the pentathlon and I was more relaxed and focused than ever, beating my PR from the previous year by 17 seconds.

Thank you so much Mr. Guare for turning a good High School experience into the most treasured time in my entire life."
