As an individual’s mind strengthens so does their physical performance and the ability to perform in high pressure competition increases. Despite its obvious importance, the mental side of sport is most often neglected, at least until a problem arises. But it is an essential piece of the athletic success puzzle.
Often, this area of training is neglected, and the mind is not treated the way the physical and technical skills are cultivated.
