ABOUT

TIER 1 small.jpg

Tier-1 Mindset is a premier mental training organization that uses the science of sport and performance psychology to identify and systematically train the mental, emotional, and cognitive aspects of performance.  Countless training programs exist that teach clients strategies on how to optimize their physical, technical, and tactical game.  The best athletes, coaches, corporate businesses, and tactical units require a strong mental game that is tough and resilient in the face of adversity and challenges.  In contrast with other program philosophies that train the mindset as a secondary by-product, Tier-1 Mindset uses a periodization framework that addresses the mental side as the primary foundation.  We have partnered with experts in fitness and nutritional health to offer a holistic program that can be tailored for any group.

TESTIMONIALS

Ryan B., Collegiate Soccer Goal Keeper

Playing one of the hardest positions in sports, mental fortitude plays an instrumental role in how successful I become. I’ve had the opportunity to work with Maryrose for the past 4 years, improving my mental strength through techniques such as proper breathing, journaling, visualization and goal setting in order to develop a champion mindset. Starting out as a 14 year old, playing club soccer to becoming a a D1 college Goalkeeper, my overall game has improved significantly.  In these four years, the two major aspects I've learned are perseverance and mental toughness.  I learned that confidence doesn’t come from never being broken down, it comes from knowing that no matter how many times I break down and fail,  I will always get back up. Maryrose helped define and strengthen this mentality into a champion mindset and pushed me to where I am today. I’m thankful for my work with her and am excited to be working with her for many years to come.
