An Austin Peay State University faculty member who is a noted sports psychologist and motivational speaker will give a talk next month about his life-changing and best-selling book, “Full Throttle: 122 Strategies to Supercharge Your Performance at Work.”

Dr. Gregg Steinberg, associate professor of health and human performance, will speak at 6 p.m., Tuesday, May 4 in the Morgan University Center, Ballroom C. He will share his insights on how to stay ahead of the game, break into the extraordinary, be complete in our lives and capitalize on our energy to be more productive and happier.

Following his talk, he will autograph copies of his book, “Full Throttle,” for attendees. Light refreshments will be served during the book signing.

Steinberg helps people find their full performance potential. In his book, Steinberg draws on his experience working with both athletes and business executives to develop an energy management system that fosters the “full throttle” habits needed to stay mentally and emotionally charged for success.

In addition to “Full Throttle,” Steinberg is the author of two other books, “Mental Rules for Golf” and “Flying Lessons.”

He also is a frequent media personality on national television networks such as CNN and the Golf Channel to speak about the mindset of an athletic champion. In October 2008, he appeared on ABC's hit competition show, “Dancing With the Stars,” to analyze the mental toughness of the remaining contestants.

Steinberg, a faculty member at APSU for nearly 12 years, provided analytical commentary for Fox News during the 2008 Summer Olympics, especially on the performance of U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps, who went a perfect 8-for-8 in Beijing to break Mark Spitz's single-Olympic Games record for gold medals.
He also has written a newspaper column, “The Head Coach,” for The Tennessean newspaper in Nashville and continues to publish extensively in academic journals.

Registration fees for the event will include a copy of his Washington Post best-selling book. Tickets are $34 each for one adult (including one copy of the book) and $44 for 2 adults (including one copy of the book).
