More competitive athletes and coaches are recognizing the powerful impact the mind has on performance.

"In the looking confident/ post it notes drill, I cannot tell you how much it helped to realize everyone else is telling themselves the exact same thing I am on a bad day! The handout is good too - it forced me to not just hear what you said and move on, but to actually be able to carry the changes into the future by having concrete things to say to myself." - Professional Cyclist

"I would be willing to say that the majority of endurance athletes would agree that mental toughness is by far more difficult than physical toughness. Knowing how to shove those negative thoughts out of your brain and coming up with a detailed plan of how you will mentally deal with everything from preparing for a race to crossing that finish line. If you think that my comeback from my horrific crash was on my own, think again. Besides my friends and family, I blame two people for my comeback: my coach, and Carrie Cheadle." Category 2 Cyclist

"The entire workshop was fascinating. The breakdown of pre-race prep, control [and] out of control and stoplights all gave me some insight to how I approach situations and events." - Cycling Team Workshop Participant
