WYC 040 – Coaching the Mental Game – Dr. Patrick Cohn from Peak Performance Sports talks sports psychology

Today’s guest on the show is Dr. Patrick Cohn. .  Dr. Cohn is a mental training expert who founded Peak Performance Sports. He has experienced firsthand how beliefs, attitudes, and mindsets influence performance as an athlete, coach, and a PhD student of sports psychology. 

The more that Dr. Cohn studied champion athletes and their mindsets, the more he realized that winning attitudes are the key to performing well in competition.

Armed with the know-how needed to build champion athletes, master mental game coach Dr. Cohn has dedicated his mental game coaching business to helping every athlete—whether junior, amateur, or seasoned professional—excel in his or her sport.  His peak performance programs also help coaches, athletic trainers, and even parents of aspiring athletes. 

One huge idea I took from Dr. Cohn was in the 2nd quarter – where he discusses the difference between other-confidence and self-confidence. A second huge idea is when he shares about pre-game tips and how to switch from practice mode to game mode.  I hope you enjoy his insights and stories!
