In athletics, it’s widely known that a strong mental game is key to being a competitive, well-rounded athlete. As an athlete, you know this, but knowing is only half the battle.
People talk about mindset. They share mindset quotes. They say things like “get out of your head” and “find your zone.” You hear it. You believe it. You’re all in…but you’re left wondering how to actually develop a strong mental game.
You’ve put in the physical practice: the miles, the swings, the shots. Now it’s time for the mental reps. To get started on the path to a strong mental game, you need a Complete Mental Game Plan.
Good news! You’re in the right place.
Developing your Complete Mental Game Plan
All of our athletes create a personalized Complete Mental Game Plan. You’ll know which mindset technique to use, when to use it, and how to make it stick. We know you’ve tried positive self-talk and forcing yourself to focus, and you may have had mixed results. We get this. Many of our athlete clients come to us having tried to change their mindset. You probably have too. You’re an athlete, of course you’ve tried, that’s part of who you are.
The reason it didn’t work isn’t because you’re not mentally tough. It’s because you didn’t have the foundational skills and expertise to help you understand and implement the skills. Just like you didn’t learn & grow in your sport without coaching and training; you don’t develop a solid mindset game without coaching and training.
The best athletes embrace the mental game. And we know you’ve got goals to be the best. To get to the top of your game, we’ll build from where you are.
What You Can Expect From Working with Us
We’ll start with defining and creating our plan for our work together. We will then discover the thoughts and beliefs that may be holding you back. Next we’ll teach you the mental skills needed to overcome the mental setbacks. Finally we’ll combine everything into a personalized complete mental game plan that will allow you to consistently bring your best performance to every performance, in sport and life!
Our clients leave with the specific techniques to achieve their goals. We’ll tailor your plan all the way from pre-game to podium.
Before Competition: Mindset techniques to see it and believe it. The thoughts, feelings, and actions and that will put you in a position for success.
Pre-Competition: Mental warm up techniques to get you in that game ready, flip the switch energy.
During Competition: Mindset techniques to keep your head in the game. No matter what. Even when.
Post Competition: Strategies to mindfully reflect on your game so that you can enjoy some time off the court and be prepared your next competition.
We’ll bring this all together. We’ll decide not only which techniques work best for you, we’ll get specific about when to use them and how to keep them strong. Of course, you’ll face adversity, but you’ll be ready for it.
