Welcome to Sport Mentality
Welcome to my blog, Sport Mentality. This blog will cover loads of topics from the world of sport and exercise psychology as well as dipping into a few other relevant areas of sport science. I'll explain theories and concepts to improve your understanding of psychological fact and theory, and provide advice and strategies you can apply to your own mental game.
These articles are written with amateur sports people in mind, but they will also be very handy for parents, fitness enthusiasts and anyone else with an interest in the mental side of training and performance.

This blog will reflect my background - I trained and worked for many years in sport and exercise science - but my goal is to break down the technical stuff, and write practical and useful articles containing loads of techniques and strategies that you can use in your training and performances.
Subjects such as confidence, motivation, consistency, resilience, learning, decision-making, dealing with distractions, pressure and stress are all going to feature. If there is anything else you'd like me to discuss, just let me know!
Training is physical, but performing is almost entirely mental!
