    In this solo episode I share with you a section presented to a major Division 1 Collegiate Athletic Program, from my virtual Injured to Elite Masterclass Program.

    In the first few modules I cover "Time Zero" and "Pain Science" in order to better help guide those first moments after injury or your low point as a high performer. These can be some of the scariest times filled with a roller coaster of emotions and this is why it is so important to work on the mental and emotional elements of the post-injury process. It can be confusing when feeling and thinking all of the things that we do when faced with a physical crisis as an athlete. This episode will help you better guide that process yourself alongside your performance team.

    The Masterclass will be offered to the general public soon so stay tuned for details and message me on IG (Click Here to Follow me on Instagram @davemmeyer) and DM me if you would like to join the waitlist!

    Mental toughness seems to have been preached and praised to athletes as long as athletes have competed...But the problem lies when already "mentally tough" athletes find themselves broken (mentally and physically) after injury. This is where I believe embracing vulnerability can shine. Cue in the work I have discovered by Dr. Brené Brown, world renowned author and Ted speaker on "The Power of Vulnerability". In this solo episode I present a bigger and better offer (BBO) to mental toughness after injury for athletes to embody, inspired by the very relevant work of Dr. Brown. Click the link above "The Power of Vulnerability" to watch Dr. Brené
     Brown's very inspirational Ted talk and backstory to this episode. One day we will bring Brené on the show!
