Mental skills training in sport is the act of preparing your mind for optimal performance during competition. 

There are many key focus areas for athletes when on the field such as confidence, resilience, motivation, and concentration to name but a few.

By performing mental exercises, an athlete can build up these areas of their mind, helping them to compete at a higher level on game-day.

MLB Hall of Famer Yogi Berra once said: “Baseball is 90 per cent mental. The other half is physical.” So why do so many athletes focus on training their body but put minimal time and effort into training their mind?

Optimize Mind Performance is a solution built to assist athletes in training their mind so they can enhance their performance on the field, court, or wherever they may compete. 

Assembled by a suite of leading sports minds and athletes from across the world, OMP provides a library of industry-backed courses, shorts, and exercises for athletes to gain an edge on their competition.

Don’t let your mind hold you back from being the best athlete you can be. Start training it and reap the rewards when competition is at its highest.

“You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them.”
― Michael Jordan
