Mental coach Joey Fritz is back to talk about;
– Cory Sandhagen’s latest winning streak
– Compassion within violence and how they’re more closely linked than you might expect
– How contact/combat sports athletes can train their brains pre and post-impact to help reduce long term negative effects.
Working with combat sports athletes, to snowboarders and even motorcycle racers, Joey took some time to chat with me about all things cognitive. We cover what the mental performance component for combat athletes looks like, how to enjoy running if you currently hate it, and the key differences between the approach and avoidance mindsets.
Joey works with a host of professional strikers and mixed martial artists at Elevation Fight Team, Denver Colorado and received his MA in Sport and Performance Psychology from the University of Denver, Denver in June 2016.
