Sport Psychology with Lifesport is mental performance coaching used by athletes, teams, or anyone who wants to improve performance. It is for those who wish to harness the power of the mind to perform with greater confidence, consistency, and at the upper ranges of their potential.
Most athletes realize the importance of physical preparation. GREAT athletes recognize that solid physical preparation combined with excellent mental preparation leads to their best performances.
Are you an athlete who has trouble staying focused?
Are you looking for a competitive edge?
Do you perform better in practice than in competition?
Have you lost confidence or motivation after an injury?
Lifesport has individual and group mental coaching programs designed to improve the performance of athletes, coaches, or teams in any sport. Coaching can be done in-person but most often can be conducted virtually! Your initial phone consultation to see if there is a fit with one of coaches is always free.
We always start with a mental skills assessment to determine the specific mental skills that need to be enhanced during competition. While many clients see results in as little as one session after the assessment, Lifesport typically works with athletes for 3-5 weekly sessions by providing each athlete with an individually tailored, mental routine in order to enhance the athlete’s performance during competition. Some of our athletes follow-up at various times throughout their careers for booster sessions in order to “tweak” various skills, but we are confident you will take away your own, specific mental toughness routine after just a few sessions!
Athletes who work with Lifesport undergo mental conditioning that includes but is not limited to the following:
