Watch now “Mental Coach: Workshop for Parents”, a workshop by Mayra Ramos, Founder of “Atleta Campeão”. Read more about the workshop below.
Every athlete's parents want to see their son with a medal on the chest and a smile on his face, but few know how to help them achieve that.
I've written the next few lines very carefully as I don't want to sound over the top in what I'm going to present to you, but honestly over these eight years of working with Olympians and amateurs alike were the most modest words I've found to describe what you're about to have access...
What I'm going to show you in the next few lines can simply change your child's future and the memories you'll have with him in sports. In fact, it can determine the type of athlete your child becomes and define the future of your ENTIRE family.
At least that's what happened to the athletes and families I've worked with using this method over the years.
But before I explain the method in detail, I need you to stop for a moment and think about the following scenario.
Have you ever had one of those days where your child:
- I was tense, nervous, and stressed before the competition, it was an emotionally exhausting process, what to do to help in moments like this? He trained poorly, was furious, and left training determined to give up the sport and training.
- The day when it's hard to beat the cell phone or video game (tik tok, games) motivates you to get off the screen and put on your training clothes. This really is a tough competition to win.
I often say that being an athlete's father and mother is as difficult as being an athlete. Just take it off for competitions, we get more nervous than them in competitions lol.
Being an athlete's parent is a roller coaster of emotions and situations that often requires the ability to understand the athlete's mind.
When your son started in the sport, no one gave him an instruction manual on how to perform in a competition.
Coaches study for years, graduate from universities, and athletes train every day and rely on professionals from different areas to guide and assist them. But what about the parents who “coach” them? Who helps them?
Being a parent is no longer an easy task. It is doubly more difficult because sport brings situations and challenges that are not common.
While there are some parents who are experts when it comes to their children's sports. They know the type of technique, they know the best athletes and even risk a few "opinions" in their children's training, they precisely control the athlete's diet and the training and study routine.
But even these careful and enlightened parents generally lack information and guidance on how the athlete's mind works.
Surprising, isn't it?
Especially when we consider the central role the mind plays in all aspects of an athlete's life and its influence on performance:
Discipline, decision-making, confidence, motivation, focus, self-awareness… and so on.
And that's precisely why I decided to create a workshop for parents of athletes who want to help their children become champions in sports and in life...
