After competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for a few years, I realized my main challenge was my competition mindset. I had done well and won some higher-level tournaments; however I was inconsistent and my game day mentality was all over the place. After losing in the finals at the 2022 Pan Championships, I contacted Kate, and we began building my mental game. After working with Kate and employing the techniques she explained to me, I won the following year’s Pan Championships’ Absolute class. One of the most valuable lessons I learned from Kate is creating action plans to help overcome any situation that might arise. These contingency plans and the confidence to overcome whatever comes the day of competing, are invaluable and what the highest level of champions have mastered. I use these action plans daily. Any time spent with Kate Allgood is time well invested.

1 on 1 Sessions

Eight sessions (in-person or virtual) to elevate your mindset. Each session we will address anything that has come up for you, focus on developing a specific mindset skill, and create a plan to implement that skill into your game going forward. *For athletes under the age of 18 one 30 minute parent support phone session will be included.


TAIS Assessment

The Attentional and Interpersonal Style (TAIS) inventory measures the ways that individuals concentrate and interact with others; those concentration skills and interpersonal characteristics are the building blocks of performance. In spite of the impact assessments can have on success, formal testing rarely takes place. This is part of how we are different, and what makes our coaching and programs more effective and efficient.

Initial Session

This step is designed to get the information needed to understand the current situation fully and what the main focus will be over the initial program. It will also be an opportunity to ask questions and ensure that this will be a right fit for both parties before diving into a program. We are looking for highly committed individuals to work with and want to ensure that someone is ready to do the work. We also want to make sure we are a good fit for someone.


Outline of Process


Continuation Program

After initial programs are completed, we reevaluate where you are at and create a custom continuation program to fit your needs. Approx. for the next 2-4 months. This is repeated as needed.

Initial Program

Initial programs are starting points, most people do proceed beyond the initial programs, as this is an ongoing process, but the programs are designed to provide enough skill development to create a solid foundation if someone only wishes to do the initial program. First we will discover the strengths and limitations of an athlete and how these factors impact them most under pressure.Next, there is a period of education and skill development, followed by on-going follow-up and adjustments. Similar to what an athlete would experience in their sports physical training.

What is Mental Performance ?

Mental performance is all about understanding the mental game, whether you're on the field, court, stage, or facing a high-pressure business deal. It's about human performance at its core, building the mental skills and techniques you need to perform consistently and effectively, no matter the situation.

This discipline dives deep into the factors that influence how you reach and maintain optimal performance, consistently striving to be your absolute best. At the elite levels, where everyone has the technical skills and knowledge, the mental aspect becomes the biggest differentiator.

Why is mental performance important?

Most athletes spend countless hours honing their physical skills, searching for that edge. But to truly reach your full potential, you need to go beyond just having the best equipment, coaching, or the most practiced moves. You need to develop the mental skills to overcome frustrations, manage anger, conquer performance anxiety, and silence that nagging self-doubt that can creep in on your journey to the top. This is where mental performance coaching comes in.

Mental Performance & Mindset Coaching for Athletes

Your mindset is more than just optimism. It's your overall mental attitude, encompassing how you choose to think, feel, and respond to situations. A positive mindset is a powerful tool, but it's just one piece of the puzzle. A champion mindset is about resilience, focus, and the ability to see challenges as opportunities for growth.

How Mindset Coaching Empowers Athletes

Traditional coaching focuses on skill development, helping you perfect that jump shot or master a new technique. Mindset coaching goes deeper, tackling the mental roadblocks that prevent you from reaching your full potential. It can help athletes:

  • Shift Perspective: See setbacks as learning experiences and use them to fuel your motivation.

  • Develop Resilience: Bounce back from adversity quickly and stay focused under pressure.

  • Manage Performance Anxiety: Channel nervous energy into laser focus and peak performance.

  • Quiet Negative Self-Talk: Replace limiting beliefs with neutral self-talk and self-compassion.

  • Build Confidence: Believe in your abilities and trust the training you've put in will allow you to adapt to whatever unfolds.


By helping you see situations from a different lens – a lens of growth, possibility, and ability to respond – a mindset coach equips you with the tools to reframe your perspective and build unshakeable confidence.

Who Can Benefit from a Mindset Coach?

Athletes of all levels can benefit from mindset coaching. It's not just for those struggling with pessimism or negativity.  Here are some examples:

  • The talented athlete who plateaus: Mindset coaching can help identify mental blocks and limiting beliefs that might be hindering further progress.

  • The athlete prone to frustration: Learn to manage frustration in the heat of competition and refocus on executing your game plan.

  • The athlete struggling with nerves: Develop strategies to manage pre-game jitters and channel nervous energy into peak performance.

We offer sports mental performance & mindset training and coaching for both individual athletes and teams who want to reach their highest potential.

Through techniques like neutral self-talk, goal setting, meditation, visualization, and more, we'll help you fully focus on your objectives, commit to your goals, and become more confident. We can also help improve your skills and reduce stress that might be hindering your performance.
