Arno Ilgner | Author: ‘The Rock Warrior’s Way’ + Mental Performance Specialist
Arno Ilgner is an O2X Resilience Specialist with expertise in stress management, resiliency, and all things mental training for tactical athletes & first responders.
He distinguished himself as a pioneering rock climber in the 1970s and ‘80s, when the top climbs were bold and dangerous first ascents. These personal exploits are the foundation for his unique physical and mental training program – The Warrior’s Way ®.
In 1995, Arno formalized his methods, founded the Desiderata Institute, and began teaching his program full time.
Since then, he has helped thousands of students sharpen their awareness, focus attention, and understand their athletic (and life) challenges within a coherent, learning-based philosophy of intelligent risk-taking.
Arno has taught clinics across the U.S.A. and abroad, holds a BA in geology, spent several years operating his own geological consulting firm in the Wyoming oil fields, acted as Chief Financial Officer for an industrial tool distribution company, attended the Army Ranger School, and served a non-combat tour of duty in Korea.
