In the video above, we talk about why we created the BRAVR™ Method and who it's for.
It can feel overwhelming starting a mental training program with your team, especially if you're also in charge of the Xs and Os.
That's why, we created The BRAVR™ Method.
If you have time to do just ONE THING every day, let it be The BRAVR™ Method.
If you are really serious about developing athletes that are mentally prepared for competition, the number one thing you can do to help them 'get their head in the game' is to teach them to visualize.
The BRAVR™ Method gives coaches framework to guide their athletes through a 5-minute, hard-hitting visualization exercise. The BRAVR™ Method seamlessly introduces athletes to the power of visualization, positive self-talk, and mindfulness, and helps athletes learn to take control of their mindset, in and out of competition.

After all, visualization is one of the most powerful tools you have for training your subconscious to achieve what you say you want to achieve. And it's not just for sports, it's a highly valuable tool for all parts of your life. Research has shown us this time and time again.
If you are a coach, parent, or an athlete, not only should you be utilizing visualization to help you achieve your own goals, it should be the backbone of your mental training program.
With all this on the line, why isn’t everyone utilizing this powerful (and super simple) tool?
