MENTAL EDGE COACHING OPTIONS
While it’s true, the Mental Edge specializes in working with
athletes; our work is not limited to the sports realm. We coach
parents, individuals, business owners and anyone that is motivated
to make real change in their lives!
If you find yourself thinking…I’m intelligent, talented, I hone my
skills and take the actions required to get the real results I
desire, but I’m still having trouble achieving the results that are
most important to me in my life, we will help you discover what is
holding you back and how to breakthrough those barriers!
Mental Performance Assessment
At the Mental Edge, we start with The Attentional & Interpersonal
Style (TAIS) inventory. TAIS helps us rapidly and accurately gauge
your mental strengths and weaknesses. You’ll learn how to play to
your strengths and guard against the mental errors that hurt you
most under pressure. Then, through an in-depth analysis of your TAIS
results, we will identify the building blocks of performance—those
factors essential to achieving high-level performance.
Mental Edge Performance Coaching
We work with you one-on-one to target the crucial areas most likely
to boost your performance. By keeping to the essentials, we enable
you to make real progress at a rapid rate. You’ll receive specific,
individualized recommendations for sharpening focus, controlling
emotions, working effectively with others, and creating a winning
mind-set. During your bi-weekly coaching sessions, you’ll learn
principles that are intended to provide you with a strong foundation
of core mind skills empowering exceptional performance, as well as,
vital life skills important to your life, school, work, family, and
peer groups. The Mental Edge specializes in helping you overcome
self-defeating thinking, behavior, and the mindset that keeps you
stuck in your reality with little or no hope of ever changing. Our
intensive coaching will change the direction of your life forever.

Experience 1.0 3 Group Sessions
Every team begins the season with high expectations for the year.

MENTAL EDGE ATHLETE CREED
You can NEVER question the fact that an athlete with a
more focused mind will produce greater results. Coaches, ranging
from the youth level to the Pros, are able to easily identify
players who are mentally prepared at any given moment throughout the
course of a game or practice. Being mentally prepared and focused
are attributes that are commonly overshadowed, however,
will continue to be the determining factor between an elite player
and an average player.
In the same respect, every sport takes a certain number of
individuals who thrive in their specific role to make the team
extraordinary. One less player on a team may seem insignificant,
however, it is the determining factor between winning a championship
or having to revert back to the old saying, “There’s always next
season”. NEVER doubt your role within your team.
Through the evolution of athletics, we have witnessed rule changes,
equipment changes, and a quantum leap in physical training regimens.
The one thing that has NEVER changed through
the years is the importance of being mentally prepared. Having a
clear, sharp, prepared, and focused mind will significantly impact
your performance. A great athlete will NEVER sacrifice
the importance of gaining an elusive mental edge over an opponent.
NEVER allow yourself to be THIS opponent.
NEVER underestimate the power within you.
Achieve your dreams today, NEVER tomorrow.
