The Benefits of Mental Performance Coaching
Today, athletes are tapping into a variety of resources to help them reach peak performance and attain their ultimate goals. Nutritionists are hired because the food we eat impacts our strength, training, performance, and recovery. Physical therapists are hired to assist athletes in rebuilding strength and movement after an injury through different exercises, stretches, and specialized techniques. Personal trainers are hired to improve technical skills and develop customized weight training programs. Each of these roles has a common focus on the physical side of performance, which is without a doubt a major component of athletic success. But, the world’s best athletes don’t stop at just physical preparation as they’ve taken advantage of every element to help them reach their highest potential – including training the mind. Just like a physical trainer prepares an athlete’s muscles, a mental performance coach prepares an athlete’s mind.
Expertise You Can Trust
The Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC) certification recognizes the knowledge and skill consultants need to meet the expectations of athletes, coaches, and non-sport performers (e.g., performing artists, military personnel, business executives). CMPCs have completed specialized education, engaged in applied training, passed a rigorous exam, adhere to a code of ethics, and committed to ongoing professional development to remain current on best practices. Administered by the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP), the CMPC is the only, nationally accredited certification for mental performance professionals. Third-party accreditation recognizes quality certification programs built on national standards and best practices.
Success Leaves Clues
Let’s face it, there’s a negative stigma associated with working with a mental performance coach. Years ago, NBA basketball player Ron Artest of the Los Angeles Lakers credited psychological help for some of his success on the court, which raised a few eyebrows by observers. There was an assumption that something needed to be wrong in order to work with a mental performance coach. Fast forward to today, there’s a growing realization about the importance of training the mind as well as the body, with sports psychologists now forming an integral part of most collegiate and professional programs.
Elite athletes such as Russell Wilson (NFL – Seattle Seahawks), Serena Williams (23-Time Grand Slam Tennis Champion), Michael Phelps (23-Time Olympic Gold Medalist Swimmer, Carli Lloyd (2-Time FIFA Player of the Year), Novak Djokovic (World #1 Ranked Tennis Player), and many more have publicly stated the important role training the mind has had on their performance. You’ve likely heard terms such as mental toughness or mental strength thrown around when describing world-class athletes and the reason is obvious. At the highest level, everybody is physically prepared, so it’s necessary to train the mind in order to gain a competitive advantage. But, this type of resource shouldn’t just be reserved for the professionals.
