Mental Training

Strong mental skills help make a well-trained athlete "whole". At Whole Athlete, we recognize that the mind is as important as the body in a complete training program.

Optimal Mental Training includes:

  • Building self-confidence and motivation
  • Managing stress, pressure, and disappointment effectively
  • Stopping negative self-talk
  • Increasing the ability to maintain and regain concentration
  • Mentally preparing well for competition
  • Improving communication with teammates and coaches
  • Setting, resetting, and managing to individual and team goals
  • Noticing, avoiding, and recovering from burnout
  • Regaining mental fitness after injury
