    How Mental Training Will Get You to Your Next Level of Play

    How Mental Training Will Get You to Your Next Level of Play

    Many times, an athletes' mental game is preventing them from outpacing other players with equal physical abilities. 

    In this week's podcast, Dr. Cohn speaks with Brenda Schultz-McCarthy, a former professional tennis player.

    Brenda discusses her experiences playing tennis and how mental coaching helped her break out to a higher level. Learn how mental training, having a support system and developing a positive mindset are just as important as working on technical training you do in your sport.

    Why Athletes Worry too Much About What Others Think

    Why Athletes Worry too Much About What Others Think

    Do you tend to worry too much about what others think of your performance? As mental game experts, we know that athletes often get preoccupied with "outcome thinking," and tend to play too safely or cautiously as a result. Athletes need to learn to shift their attention from other players and, instead, focus on their own play.

    In this podcast, Dr. Cohn speaks about skills you can use to focus your attention on what really matters during the game and avoid comparisons with other players.

    Achieve Proactive Confidence for a Healthy Life Balance

    Are you an athlete who struggles to maintain a healthy balance between your daily life and your role as an athlete?

    When there is too much pressure on sports, many athletes begin to struggle with outcome thinking and can become overcome with challenges or adversity.

    Dr. Cohn speaks with mental coach Frederic Merelle about positive psychology and how in times of adversity, maintaining a healthy sport and life balance can help athletes keep proactive confidence in their game.

    Don't Let Adversity Affect Your Game

    Don't Let Adversity Affect Your Game

    Are you an athlete who struggles with fear of failure in competition?

    Many athletes spend too much time dwelling on their mistakes, feeling that past mistakes define their future play.

    When too much pressure is placed on winning, rather than on improvement, sports can start feeling like work rather than fun, especially for sports kids.

    Dr. Cohn speaks with basketball Coaches Jim Huber and Charlie Miller on how athletes can work through their mistakes and bounce back from adversity in their play.

    Improve Your Body Language

    Improve Your Body Language

    Do you struggle with negative body language when you compete? 
    Often times there are certain triggers that lead to your negative body language. Athletes need to be aware of what they are doing to exhibit this negative body language.
    You don't want to show your opponents that you have a negative mindset. Become aware of what you are doing and create a new positive focal point to remind yourself to stay composed and keep your game face on. Change your internal dialogue to be more positive to help change your body language.

    Helping Athletes Take Practice Skills to Competition Consistently

    Helping Athletes Take Practice Skills to Competition Consistently

    Do you look like a star in practice, but choke up in competition? Does your performance feel tight, controlled, or lack of freedom when you compete? Many hard-working athletes who get lots of confidence from practice get in their own way (mentally) when they compete…
    Why do athletes tense up and lose trust in their skills when they compete? Many athletes I work with continue “training” when they compete. They continue with a “practice mindset” in competition. They worry more about how it looks and feels than getting the job done. If you or your athletes do this, you must learn to separate your practice from your performance.
