Over the years, I’ve worked with
many Athletes – all ages and skill levels, and from many sports – both individual and team sports.
It amazes me how many Athletes and Coaches say they know the importance
of the mental side of sports, but how few understand, or spend adequate time on developing it.
Being as serious about Mental Fitness as physical fitness is the biggest
advantage an elite Athlete has over opponents.
Process Coaching for Enhancing Sports Performance is a program designed for Coaches, Athletes, and teams to develop mental
Many Coaches and Athletes
talk about developing Potential – my message to them is simple: Potential is useless until turned into Performance.
And Elite Performance doesn’t come from just physical training, skills training, or time in the gym.
Athletes have physical conditioning Coaches, team Coaches, and private
Coaches to help with physical skills. Now it’s time to get a Mental Fitness Coach involved in development as well
– IF you’re really serious about seeing improvement.
The biggest mental challenges facing athletes, both as individuals and as teams are:
• Lack of Self Confidence
• Negative Self Talk
times I’ve heard Athletes and Coaches repeat the old refrain: “Practice makes perfect.” Not true –
just because an Athlete repeats physical movements or skills over and over doesn’t mean they’re not repeating
and embedding negative patterns even more deeply into the brain and body.
Muscle Memory is when a body does something without thought – such as brushing your
teeth or choking at a crucial point in a game.
Mental Muscle Memory can be good or bad. Isn’t it time
to learn how to install new software into the brain that will establish positive Muscle Memory? The kind that truly
brings outstanding Performance!
