Fuel for the Mind: Book Recommendations

Body Helix Tennis Branding (2)-1

I go through books like most people go through coffee.  Therefore, if you have been following along with my other blog posts, you will likely see a lot of references to my reading.  Right now, though, I want to share a few of my "Fuel for the Mind" reads that I think can help you with your mindset.  If you want more or need specific suggestions, just reach out to me and I am always happy to share my library.  These are light, quick reads with great inspiration in them. I have found that most people who have an interest in sports will walk away with significant gains from these.



Start with Why

If you are not familiar with Simon you can listen to a number of YT that are out there.  One of the most important questions you can answer for yourself whether in sports or life is “WHY”.  Simon is very entertaining, straightforward with clear concise messaging.


Big Magic

An inspiring book that can help you understand and release your own creativity.  Elizabeth shares her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity.  She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering.  A fantastic, fun book to read.  She will make you laugh while inspiring you in the same sentence.



Genius Foods

Max discusses the link between your brain and the food you eat, change the way you think about how your brain ages.  He lists superfoods that can help you achieve optimal brain performance.  He has conducted decades of research.

Fred Robinson, Chairman of Body Helix, is a 70-time World and U.S. medalist tennis champion. Robinson also is a U.S. National Grand Slam Title holder in singles and doubles and is an eight-time Atlanta Senior Invitational Pro Tournament Singles Champion. He has been ranked No.1 in the United States in senior tennis in both singles and doubles multiple times during his career. In addition, he was recognized as Player of the Year in the Men’s Open in North Carolina and Florida, and is an eight-time undefeated champion in the ITF World Team Competition. During his 30-year career, Robinson has also received many distinctions such as the Slew Hester Player of the Year Award, the National Gil Roberts Sportsmanship Award and the Best Senior Tournament of the Year Award. Robinson founded Body Helix in 2008 when he observed that compression gear designed for muscle and joint pain/injuries had minimal effect, was uncomfortable, and was decades behind the advances of fabric science. This motivated Robinson to search for a material that would do three things better than any other material in the world of compression: stretch, rebound, and stay in place. His passion for creating high-quality, eco-friendly compression products is demonstrated through his continuous efforts in product research, development and design.
