Before mental performance coaching via Zoom was popular, Peak Performance Sports has delivered mental skills training to athletes and teams via Skype video conferencing for many years. In addition to working with athletes in many countries, we’ve worked with athletes across town because of the convenience of video mental performance coaching. Using video technology helps save you drive time, which you can be using for practice.

I’m Patrick J Cohn, Ph.D. the owner and founder of Peak Performance Sports. I’ve helped athletes and teams for over 30 years improve their performance, overcome slumps, get past the yips, and get in the winners’ circle again. My team of mental performance coaches help you improve your mental game from anywhere in the world.

Why Mental Performance Coaching?

Do you find that you or your athlete is under performing in competition? Are you frustrated with not performing up to your potential you show in practice? At Peak Performance Sports, you learn the secrets to improving your performance via mental performance coaching. Now you can get expert mental performance coaching from anywhere in the world from the leaders in mental training.

If you perform like a star athlete during practice but choke or lose confidence during competition, the most likely culprit is your mental game. Do you find yourself going into a slump for no reason? Do you get so frustrated that you can’t think clearly in competition? Are you so critical of your performance that you lose confidence? These are all reasons that you can improve your mindset for sports.

“Mental coaching has helped me immensely. It has taught me what to focus on in and out of the racecar… How to stay calm and focused have been the key skills that I have learned, which are important to becoming a better and more confident racecar driver.”*

~AJ Allmendinger, NASCAR Driver

Mental Coaching Success Stories

“The Last Competition Went Perfect.”

Mental Training for Dancers

“The last competition went perfect. I would say it was a very positive performance. If I look at the videos and ask, do I look confident? Yes. Am I letting go of mistakes and staying in the moment? Yes. Am I instinctual? Yes. Am I positive towards my partner? Yes. So over all from a mental game point of view I would say this was a successful competition.”
~Tal Livshitz, Amateur Latin Line Dancer, Top 3 in USA

“I Had the Best Nationals I Have Ever Had.”

“Patrick, with your great instruction on the mental game, I had the best nationals I have ever had. And even more important, I got through the five days relaxed and had fun – a new concept in my life! The bottom line – I got five firsts and one second! Thank! You are just what I needed.”*

Hopefully, you can help us reach our goals next year.”*
