Myth: Improving Your Chess Requires Tons Of Time, Energy & Training

You’re constantly searching for the next book, course or video to improve your game.

Sure, that gets you excited for a little while. However, as time passes you come to a striking truth:

More information, tips and hacks is making your game worse—here’s why:

❌ There’s no strategy for implementation 

❌ More information leads to overthinking

❌ It lacks specific customization to your needs

And worst of all, the amount of time and energy it takes from you drains your motivation. 

Which means you lose the excitement you once had to study, train and play Chess.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Instead, you can access a simple approach based on proven strategies on what really matters—while learning in the fastest, most effective way possible.

That’s why Next Level Training exists.

Trusted By 400+ Players Who’d Tried It All

👋🏻 Hey, I’m Noel. I went from rock bottom to winning a

Championship in only 2 years. And you can do the same.

Summer 2017. 

I hit my head in an unfortunate accident. The result was a traumatic Brain Injury that changed my life and Chess career. Because of the headaches, loss of concentration and nausea…I had minimal concentration. 

It was so bad, that in a 2017 tournament I had to lie on the couch during a game because I couldn’t sit up straight for too long!

The truth is…it would have been easy to just stop playing Chess professionally after this incident. 

But I wasn't ready to give up on my dreams. In order to remain competitive, I knew I had to do something different. A radical approach. In doing so, I was forced to train smarter. My focus was exclusively on the things that make a huge difference.

Everything else was deleted. 

That’s when it all clicked. I started winning more. I was more consistent, with less effort. And two years after my injury, I won the Swiss Championship with an unbeaten 7.5/9—one of the top performances of my career.

And I discovered a life-changing truth:

You can radically improve your chess even with limited time and energy.

In fact, during my championship I couldn’t prepare more than 30 minutes per game. 

Which gave me the ultimate proof that anyone can improve their chess in limited time…including you. 

Because of this success…I shared it on my blog. My readers saw amazing results. And due to high demand, I put it all into a step-by-step system that anyone can use to accelerate their results—just like Steve below.

Steve increased his Lichess rating by +100 points in only 40 days

So, how did I achieve an all-time high rating of 2588 FIDE & Swiss Champion Titles with a brain injury—and 
how can you take
your game to the next level?

Ditch conventional advice, stop looking for hacks on Reddit
and build a plan that skyrockets your motivation and results.

First off, I ignored conventional advice. My focus was on the essential things that make a huge difference. 

I went through my games and discovered I lost 80% of my games due to Tactics & Calculation mistakes.

So, what did this number tell me?

1️⃣ Tactics decide most games, even on Grandmaster Level.

2️⃣ Suffering from a Brain Injury, I had difficulties focusing and thus my blunders increased.

Finding where I was making most of my mistakes gave me hope. If I could decrease my tactical mistakes, I’d increase my rating quickly. And you can do the same by solving exercises that simulate what you’ll face during a game. At your most focused. Just like I did.

Instead of spending time on unnecessary things, I only solved exercises when I was able to focus well.

This training was more impactful than hundreds of hours of opening study.

In addition, I simplified all my decisions. Because my body wasn't ready for crazy routines of remembering engine lines and complicated tactical battles.

Instead, the key was to:

1️⃣ Get positions with simple ideas, and

2️⃣ Play them better than my opponents

That meant logical opening concepts instead of complex Engine lines. Plus studying the structures before the tournament, so there wasn't much to review before a game. In short: trading memorization for understanding that allows my—and your— intuition to lead the way. 

Because after years of messages from the Blog and Private students…I now know a simple truth:

Every player wants to improve, but has limited time and energy.

In your case, it’s likely not due to a brain injury. But your days are packed with a job, going to university or
raising a family. Which means when you get to play or study Chess…you
don’t have the luxury of wasting time. 

Instead of feeling exhausted when studying Chess and “guessing” at what and how to study…

  • You need a system.
  • You need a process.
  • You need a blueprint.

That allows you to go from wasting your energy to focusing it…like this.

And to maximize your results in the least amount of time, you need clarity on what to study, but even more importantly—how to study.

Everyone teaches you the “what.” No one teaches you the “how.”

Instead of teaching you more information, trends, hacks, tips…I show you how to simplify your training so you know exactly what to focus on. Which instantly boosts your motivation because it’s simple and easy to do.

Otherwise, with no plan or focus…you waste your time on half-read books and opening courses that don’t lead to lasting results.And when you’re not seeing results, you’re less motivated every day. 

In fact, a Harvard study showed that the number one motivator in life is seeing progress. 

It’s why I created a simple approach to improve your Chess game using the 1/3 Rule.

Introducing the 1/3rd Rule—your unfair advantage for

maximum results without overthinking or overanalyzing.

So, how does it work? You’ll spend…

⅓ Learning new tactical motifs and subsequently solving Tactical Exercises

⅓ Playing games & learning a lot from your mistakes by analyzing them the right way

⅓ Improving your Openings, Endgame play or positional chess, according to your personal needs.

By the way…I’ve curated the top online tools, books and courses that you need. You’ll be stunned at how much you can do with free resources and a small number of books or courses. Which gets you more motivated and excited to train…as the cycle repeats itself. Until incremental results compound, much like this.

After helping hundreds of players simplify their training to focus on what matters and create massive results…I put it all together. When you enroll today, you’ll discover that reaching your next level of Chess is much easier than you think…

  • If you take action.
  • If you follow the plan.
  • If you are committed.

Since everything I teach is rooted in psychology, you can use the same tactics for other skills in life. From learning new languages, to landing a new job or picking up hobbies…learning how to study is a gamechanger. 

So if you’re ready for a step-by-step system that countless Chess players have used for progress without guesswork, overwhelm or short-term “hacks” that don’t work….just click the button to enroll today and I’ll see you inside.
