With the latest discoveries in neuroscience, sports psychology has laid the foundation for athletes to tap into their mental performance game and utilize all the benefits that imagery offers in and out of sport. Thoughts and emotions are feelings that navigate an athlete during sport performance, and can either lead an athlete to success, or drive them towards a loss. When an athlete is worried about performing, these mental distractions become barriers that block maximal performance. But, when Gravitational Performance works through these barriers with athletes, they see, success!
For this, we are inspired to Educate, Motivate, and Drive. Educate our athletes to understand the importance of sports science and the mental game, to motivate our athlete to perform their best physical performance in sport and drive our athletes to the top! We primarily focus on the sports medicine aspect of mental performance through injury prevention and rehabilitation in sport.
Gravitational Performance was founded in 2013. Throughout this time, we’ve worked with several athletes from coast to coast, ranging in all sport. We’ve had the opportunity to learn from the top leaders in sport: working with professionals (physicians, physician assistants, and physical therapist) in sports medicine, coaches in (high school, collegiate, and professional sports) and have learned from Olympic track coaches at the Olympic Training Center. We also have a podcast listed on our website and on iTunes. We will be recording with elite and professional athletes, coaches and more, that will give you testimonials and guidance towards your success in sport! Gravitational Performance is sports science! We believe for an athlete to be successful, an athlete should have a sports medicine team of professionals: head coach, sports psychology (mental performance coach), sports nutrition consultant, and performance trainers. This, is where we come into play- Sports psychology mental performance training
Imagery: It is the ability to create or re-create a scenario or experience in the mind. When athletes engage in vivid imagery, research has proven that they are able to interpret these images as identical to the actual stimulus situation.
