About

Brain in the Game explores the mental aspect of training and competing at an elite level of sport.

Traditionally, we’re all very aware of the role of a physical coach, people who work with the bodies of athletes.

Mind coaching focuses on the brain and the cognitive area of an athlete, working with them on their strategies, their structure and their emotional welfare.

Brain in the Game is designed specifically for athletes, coaches, parents and crew as we unpack and understand what it takes to thrive as an elite athlete.

In each episode we will examine a different facet of sport from the perspective of the mind; covering interviews with some of the top athletes on the circuit and asking them what’s working for them now and what they’re looking at doing in the future.

We’re talk to coaches and gain a better understanding of the changing face of professional coaching.

We also delve into biomechanics and understand the different dynamics of the integration of those in professional sport.

Some of the techniques discussed will be time tested and others will be cutting edge. Brain In The Game provides a practical insight to the mental mind-field that is elite sport and demonstrates how a strong mental programme can make all the difference to an athlete’s results.
