If you’ve ever been injured, you know that sometimes your body is healed before your confidence is. Your brain needs its own “physical therapy” to get back to the confidence and composure you felt before you got injured. The Mental Toughness for Injured Athletes program will provide you with the tools you need to regain your confidence and get back to the athlete you were — and even better than you were — before your injury.
Once you’ve finished this program you will be familiar with the ins and outs of the injury process. You’ll better understand the impact that stress has on your injury and your recovery, learn how to navigate specific issues during the rehabilitation process, and gain the resilience you need to stay positive. But, best of all, you’ll have access to the mental skills training tools you need to regain your confidence and get back to your sport.
