key areas of optimization

Identity

Who are you? Many times our identity becomes linked to our performance. This can lead to increased anxiety and also substantiating struggles during transitions or loss. 

Resilience

Developing the ability to face challenges, embrace them and see every challenge as an opportunity. An individual who is resilient is able to accept feedback and responds to adversity with determination.

Confidence

An individual who is confident realizes their skills are not impacted by circumstances. The individual learns to trust their skills, training, and experience rather than what fluctuation emotions or external circumstances. 

why?

If we spend time and energy training our physical body to perform, then why not our mental ability as well? We can train our mind to work with us, and not against us. During times of stress, typically within competition, the mind can respond in undesired ways. So by developing mental skills, the mind becomes trained to respond optimally during high stress times. Mental skills allow the individual to reach his or her optimal zone to perform consistently regardless of stress.

Many elite level athletes have adopted mental skills and sport psychology methods into their training regimen to reach greater levels and become more successful. Your mindset is what sets you apart, start your training plan today!
