Certification Program 

With Mental Training Expert Lindsey Wilson

Dear Coach,

I could tell you how scientific studies support a strong correlation between mental training practice and high levels of performance in Olympic Athletes. Or how numerous studies have also shown that mental fitness, like physical fitness, is trainable but must be continually and consistently practiced.

But you probably already know this.

What you might not know (or have the time to figure out) is how to TEACH your athletes how to become competitors. Maybe competing comes naturally for you and you wonder why your athletes don't have it, maybe they have it sometimes but get overly nervous other times, or maybe you just feel like there is a whole other level to them that you SHOULD be training but don't even know where to start.

Don't worry, we've got you covered.

Coaches often come to us because they KNOW the mind is important (they might even be already trying to train it) but they have no time to create a consistent, structured program. So they throw together some stuff, feel bad because it isn't better, until they realize that their time is much better spent by simply implementing a program that already works.

Don't reinvent the wheel. If you want your athletes to compete better and more consistently, this program will show you how to get them there. Step by step.

I've been a college and professional athlete, worked with athletes from youth to Olympians, and implemented mental training programs at over 150 universities across the nation. I can say without question, that this program is our BEST ever for coaches sick and tired of watching their athletes underperform.

If that's you. Welcome. I'm so glad you are here.

"I enjoyed the training very much–it gives many tangible tools to use that I intend to implement starting in the spring with my women’s soccer team. I think the post-competition critique, the Arousal level worksheet, and the highlight reel worksheet will be very useful for my team in terms of getting themselves ready for matches, but also in terms of getting to know themselves better, which should really help a lot not just on the soccer field, but in life. This course by Positive Performance Training doesn’t just give you the worksheets and other tools–it gives many suggestions on how to implement them and most importantly, why it’s best to do it that way. I had a lot of “A-ha!” moments during the training."

"I’ve reviewed many material and courses related to developing mental toughness and it is my opinion this is one of the best! Everything from the videos to the visualization audio to the printable documents is top-notch. I’ll implement this with my team and believe it will truly make them, not only better competitors, but also give them the ability to overcome any obstacle they face."

"Working through this course could not be easier. Make no mistake, what is presented is powerful information to change an athlete into having their best mindset heading into every practice and competition they face. This provides not only the physiological and psychological reasons for what challenges an athlete’s mind, it provide the light of rationale and tools to effective make the breakthrough with each of your athletes."

"This was a great course and well worth the moderate amount of time that it takes to complete it. The worksheets that I now get to implement with my new young and inexperienced high school basketball team are going to benefit our program as a whole for seasons to come."
