Mental coaching for athletes who are tired of starting over.
You’ve ‘arrived’ in every way… So why is it that every time you compete you feel like your high-school coach is shaking his head and looking at the ground?
Kelly Performance & Wellness is ideal for serious athletes and fitness fanatics who are having difficulty achieving specific goals, or recovering from an injury. Maybe you’ve set your sights on The Mount Evans Hill Climb, winning the club championship — or you just want to be able to walk the entire course without pain.
Our behavior is largely governed by our unconscious minds.
Most of us aren’t even aware of our inner dialogue and mental programming… but we are painfully aware when doubts, fears, and other negative thoughts creep into our minds, and mess with our mojo! The good news is, mental skills can be developed. It’s possible to redirect our thought processes from unproductive and damaging, to positive and enhancing.
Mental Performance Coaching uses a variety of techniques that enable clients to self-regulate and perform at a higher level.
We introduce positive thoughts to your unconscious mind. They transform unproductive thoughts into productive thoughts… which evolve into healthy behaviors that are more conducive to reaching your goals.
Change your mindset, and change your life.
Here’s a secret… professional athletes aren’t necessarily born with the mental ability to perform their best when it counts the most. They too, must work to strengthen their mental skills throughout their careers. Mental Performance Coaching isn’t only for professional athletes.
Top competitors develop their mental skills — and you can too.
- Uncover what’s holding you back
- Learn to regulate your own behavior
- Change the dialogue, and silence your inner critic
- Better navigate all of life’s challenges
The first part of the process is recognizing your own limitations. The next time you falter, you’ll be able to STOP, self-correct, and avoid the ‘mental trap’. From there transformation is possible — in fact, most clients are actually surprised by how quickly they progress.

Before Your Session
Before you begin your mental coaching session, you will discuss what you want to achieve. Are you trying to get motivated? Lose weight? Develop better eating habits? Control stress? Perhaps you’re an athlete with a mental obstacle to overcome.
Mental skills help focus the power of your mind so you can eliminate counterproductive thoughts and behaviors. You’ll enter each session with clear intentions.
During Your Session
Each session begins with a review of your goals and accomplishments. If needed, relaxation techniques are used to calm the mind and body. Other techniques may include hypnosis or visualization.
Much like meditation, hypnosis slows your mind’s babbling and allows your brain to attain a heightened state of focus. Unlike meditation however, a hypnotherapist guides you into a deeper state of relaxation, and introduces thoughts and ideas that resonate with your goals.
Your imagination is one of the most powerful and creative parts of your consciousness. Sometimes guided imagery is used to harness this power in service of your goals. When you use your imagination, you create a more memorable mental experience that aids in changing your thought and behavior patterns.
After Your Session
Your 50-minute mental skills session will be a relaxing, positive experience — a boost to your health and well-being. You will feel refreshed after your session, and ready to take on the challenges of your day!
