"As a track coach for more than 25 years and an All American Cross Country/10k athlete I know that training an athlete’s mind is as important as training the body. Having a mental edge over my competitors transformed me from being an excellent athlete into a champion. As a coach I find myself using my counseling skills more often as we approach the post season and my athletes begin to struggle with perfectionism and what I call “negative self talk.”
~ Kellie Stover
"Mental Skills Training with Ann helped me see that one bad play or one bad game does NOT define who I am as a player or a person. This has helped me become a stronger and more resilient athlete."
~ Annie M
"My training with Ann Zaprazny at the Great Sports Minds Academy was both impactful and empowering. It is reviving some of my leadership skills that I hadn't realized were part of my coaching success. She helps her clients “focus on the process and what they can control.” I especially liked how we could share and practice during her workshop. I know both my son and I have already begun to implement her “3R approach” and having that mental tool will give us both an edge as we continue to pursue our passion for competitive sport. Every serious athlete or coach should spend some time improving their mental game with Ann!"
