Services We Provide

We are here to provide performance enhancement training to BU teams and student-athletes. Alongside the strategic and physical coaching that athletes recieve, Performance Enhancement Training adds a focus on mental skills and preparation and can have a tremendous impact on overall well-being and sport performance for student-athletes. We provide teams and individuals with training in mental skills that have been shown to improve performance and make it more consistent. 

Performance Enhancement Training can help athletes and performers:

  • Maintain the attention, focus, thoughts, and emotions that lead to optimal performance
  • Manage and regulate emotions to achieve consistent performance
  • Remove mental and emotional blocks that are getting in the way of optimal performance
  • Strengthen the ability to perform under pressure
  • Conquer performance anxiety and fears of choking
  • Develop specific performance goals and a plan for handling the stress and challenges of training and competition
  • Overcome the effects of injury or a poor performance
