E26: Mindset Psychology for Athletes with Dr. Kasey Orvidas Strength in the Details

    • Health & Fitness

The mind and the body are not separate systems. The pursuit of optimal health is an interconnected journey that blends physical, mental, and emotional factors. The science of mindset is critical to enhancing sports performance by creating sustainable behaviors to help athletes thrive in the long term. What lens do you use when thinking about your health, your athletic performance, and your growth? Athletes with a growth mindset believe that they have the capacity to improve and welcome challenges and feedback. In this episode, Dr. Kasey Orvidas breaks down growth versus fixed mindset and how that impacts how we view failure, learning, and setbacks as an athletic person. Kasey holds a Ph.D. in Psychology and is a certified health and fitness coach. Coaches should invest in learning principles of health behavior change and mindset to help their athletes hone in on weaknesses in their own sport-related psychology.

THE GRITTY DETAILS


There is a science to mindset - it's not just “woo-woo” feel good stuff.
Coaches invest time and resources in developing state-of-the-art strength programs and nutrition services to support clients. However, if the client fails to get themselves to the gym or complete their check-ins on time, how can you measure the value of this investment? Health behavior change is the first step to truly using coaching skills to maximize client outcomes.
The belief that your performance or fitness goals are malleable and can be changed is one aspect of a growth mindset. If you accept setbacks and feedback as an opportunity to improve, you may lean toward having a growth mindset.
