Push Past Your Comfort Zones

In “Sessions with Doc,” Dr. Patrick Cohn answers your sports psychology and mental training questions about focus in competition.

Here’s the question Dr. Cohn answers this week about pushing past comfort zones to achieve peak performance:

JOHN ASKS: “I have a student who starts his tennis match off well, as soon as he gets 3 or 4-LOVE lead, he starts thinking about the end of a match. Therefore he loses concentration on the immediate point or the immediate game. How can I help him concentrate better when up in a match?”

Watch the video below to hear what Dr. Cohn has to say to John about how to help his athlete work on his mental game.

The Focused Athlete

It’s probably no secret that you have many opportunities to become distracted in sports. Athletes are bombarded with both internal and external distractions everyday in practice and competition. Focused athletes are able to get the most from their skills because they are more efficient with practice and more concentrated in competition. Athletes who lack focus let distractions run wild through their mind and don’t know how to adjust or refocus.

The Focused Athlete was developed for any level coach, parent, or junior to professional athlete who wants to improve performance and gain a competitive edge. It does not matter if you are a fledgling junior athlete; or a seasoned professional, plagued with distractions; or you just wanting to learn how to improve concentration…

“The Focused Athlete” is a complete system to teach you how to focus like a champion and harness the power of a zone focus every time you step on the playing field, court, track, or course in practice and games!
