Mentally prepared athletes are able to show their best performances independent of their emotional state or circumstances. They know how they respond to adversities, and they train the new responses. The competitive arena is intimidating, and no one can show their best performances without working on Mental Preparation.

Sport psychology and sport psychophysiology are not something new! In 1897! Yes, in the late 1800s, Norman Triplet conducted the first sport psychology experiment when he noticed that children riding a bike would have faster times when in the presence of others. Griffith (around 1921-1938) became known as the father of Sport Psychology in the USA, and he focused his studies on reaction time, mental awareness, muscular tension, and relaxation. The Cold War period and the Olympics were extremely important for the development of sport psychology and marked the integration of multiple sciences into Sport and Exercise psychology.

Thanks to all the researchers and professionals who contributed to the science I love, today I can help athletes improve athletic performance by using the tools of psychological skills training and going fancy with the latest biofeedback technology from the psychophysiological approaches to sport performance.
