Sport Psychology

If you’re going well in training but you feel you are under performing in events then the most likely reason is something psychological.

These are all statements I have heard in the last year from athletes who have come to see me for the first time.

Do any of them sound familiar?

  • I’m so frustrated with my performance that I feel like giving up
  • I seem to give up when my legs are screaming
  • I am getting dropped by riders that shouldn’t drop me
  • I am really nervous in the bunch
  • Ever since the crash I find myself holding back
  • I keep missing the crucial breaks
  • I don’t really have any goals, I just see what happens
  • I seem to lose concentration in time trials

If the above statements do sound familiar to you then you could benefit from the same psychological training I have used with World champions and Olympic athletes.

Mental fitness training is not just for the elite, it is for people who enjoy their sport and want to get the most out of it.
