Why Mental Training
No serious athlete denies the importance of the mental game in the pursuit of elite performance. Yet so few athletes pursue mental training in the same way they pursue physical skills. If you are a serious athlete, how much of your training time is devoted to the mental side of your game? Do you know how you tend to perform under pressure?
Identification of your “Athlete’s Profile” will provide insight into how well you handle critical situations in competition, as well as the best methods for improving your performance when it matters most. If you devote just a fraction of your training time to your mental game, you can set yourself ahead of your competition who acknowledge the importance of the mental game, but fail to invest in mental training.
