We all know that 90% of sport is mental, yet too many athletes spend time only training their physical body. If you don’t master your mindset, you’re leaving the majority of your performance and growth up to chance.

It’s mental performance that separates good athletes from great ones, and amateur athletes from professional ones.

This coaching is for you if…

  • You’re a coach/parent who’s tired of seeing your athlete(s) fall short of their potential because they lack the confidence or mental toughness they need. You’re looking for a proven process they can use to break out of their limitations and master the mental game.

As a former University and Professional athlete herself, Lauren is really able to paint a clear picture of how this training works from the athlete’s perspective, which is invaluable for preparing you to implement it with your own athletes.
MJ Jennings
Since joining the Brain Training for Athletes Program I have noticed the impact it has made on me as an individual and a player. I have learned to speak about my experiences and find ways to work with the struggles. Coach Lauren has taught me skills and lessons that will not only help me improve my game but, I will use these strategies in my everyday life. I have found that talking about my weaknesses has only made me stronger. I learned that your struggles and problems don’t define you. Your problems are simply a bump in the road that you just have to push over. Here are five words that help me: Grit, Empathy, Determination, Dedication, and Power. These five words have shaped my character and allowed me to grow strength as a player and have helped accelerate my game. The difference between a good and a great player is simple. It is your mindset how you perceive the task at hand. A positive mindset, the five words, and the help of your teammates and coaches will help you along the way. Thank you for listening to my experience.
Lara Beecher
Working with Taylor on mindset training has really benefited my game by helping me set and achieve my goals, as well learn the importance of mental state and how it affects my performance on the ice. With goal setting I now view my success in games and practices in new and more self-supportive ways. It doesn’t matter how much you already know about mindset training because in conversation Taylor will uncover something new for you to work on.
Sawyer D
Margaret’s ability to demonstrate empathy, her always open-mind, and her excellent active listening skills make her the best of the best. She recognized my needs and took action by challenging my perspectives and bestowing a true confidence upon me, allowing me to succeed in ways I never thought I could.
When I first met MJ, I was a young, inexperienced hockey player, and thanks to her guidance and nurturing, have accomplished goals I thought were far beyond my reach. She mentored me closely through all four years of my high school experience, and offered sage guidance that I continue to refer to long after my collegiate sports career has come to a close.
As a professional athlete, I’ve realized the importance of mental strength and focus in hockey. Susan’s Performance Coaching skills have tremendously helped me those areas.
Gregory Campbell
I have been in and around the hockey world for over 30 years and Margaret Jennings is one of the best coaching minds I have ever had the pleasure of being around. She is driven and passionate about her craft. Margaret is a motivator and a positive force. I would highly recommend Margaret as a coach, mentor and role model for any parent who has a player at any level of any sport.
