Sports Psychology or Mental Skills Training isn't unattainable, or therapy, or deep breaths, or mean you're weak, or too hard to learn... my framework is empirically proven!

Developing mental game allows you to be the same athlete every time you compete, giving you a fierce edge over competition.

You hire a strength & conditioning coach, nutritionist, hitting coach, swing coach, SAt prep expert, physical therapist... you need a mental conditioning coach!

Research shows strong mental skills are the difference between being average & elite.

You're used to doing drills in practice, in this challenge, i'll teach you mental drills & tools so you can be one step closer to breaking those records you've dreamed about.

more playing time or being recruited or making the top team come down to how you respond to pressure, make decisions in the moment & control emotions - Get Access to the same methods I teach my Olympic clients.

Ashley Eckermann, MS, MPM

Owner of Maximize the mind

My schedule is at capacity serving 1:1 clients, but I still want to help more athletes have access to tools that I wish I had when I was younger. This challenge allows me to teach some of the best strategies in a different format.

For over two decades, I’ve worked with athletes as a head coach, teacher, consultant, & practitioner...teaching youth through professional athletes how to train smarter & thrive under pressure. I've trained over 1500+ athletes to elevate their game.

During my career, I’ve coached All-Americans, State Champions, Olympians, Professionals, & received Coach of the Year Awards. As a 7X Ironman finisher, I truly appreciate the role mental toughness plays. I've had my fair share of injuries/surgeries, so I get where my peeps have been! I'll give a ton of different sport examples & explain the strategy behind everything - I used to hate when coaches didn't tell us why we were doing a drill. Get ready to be schooled in the power of mental preparation & inspired to make some changes!

I’m so passionate about helping competitors reach their goals, I hope you'll join me on this FREE JOURNEY because teaching mental strength techniques is kinda my jam!

The Bottom Line Is...

If you or your athlete experiences:

- paralyzing second guessing

- debilitating tension

- gives up too quickly

- internalizes all the comments

- overthinks what could go wrong

- too worried what others think…

The FREE No Positive Thinking Challenge is the answer you’ve been craving. Bench your fears & become an unshakable competitor! Don't let the fact that it's FREE fool you, this will transform your thinking!

We'll see you on the inside!
