12: Mental Performance Mastery Coaching in Sports with Brian Cain

We can all use a little “tweak” to the habits that make up our lifestyles, especially if we’re interested in optimal performance, endurance, and mastery. Today’s guest has many years’ experience and much wisdom to share, based on what he practices in his own life and how he works with his clients. You don’t want to miss today’s conversation!

Brian Cain is widely regarded as the foremost authority on Mental Performance Mastery Coaching in sports in the US. His client list includes five UFC champions, Olympic medalists, Heisman Trophy winners, and over 100 first round draft selections in professional sports, including the NFL, NHL, and MLB. He’s also coached collegiate national champions. In today’s show, we discuss the evolution of his own high-performance lifestyle, as well as his approach and philosophy. We cover his journey to “walking the walk,” his daily and weekly routine, for competing in triathlons, his sleep routine, and his vision for impacting the most people possible over the next 20 years through his work. Brian has created a new Mental Performance Mastery Coaching Certification, which I will be taking, and you can sign up through the link in our Resources section. Brian and I have crossed paths in several ways over the last 20 years, and I’ve been able to witness his passion and dedication firsthand.

 

Anyone can have, be, and do anything they want with enough time and discipline.
