"Under pressure you can perform fifteen percent better or worse"
Mental performance is often recognized as the illusive x-factor within the practice of all sport or performances. However, many athletes, coaches and performers place very little, if any weight on the development and enhancement of these powerful skillsets.
Focus North Performance utilize a variety of mental training techiques and various research advances in modern sport and performance psychology to help provide athletes and performers with a competitive advantage over their compeditors.
"In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure"
The same way an athlete works with a trainer or coach to improve their physical skills, a sport psychologist or mental skills coach can work with athletes on the specific psychological skills necessary for their sport and even specific for each individual athlete.
The lessons and experiences gained through mental performance training are not only useful for an athlete’s performance in their sport. They are transferable life skills and can be applied to a variety of other facets of sport, work or school, family and life in general. Our mission is to help our athletes develop, maintain and access a more functional and optimal concentration under stress.
