Mental Coaching & Interactive Metronome

Mental Coaching 

Mental coaching is a term used to describe the development of the mental / psychological aspects of performance achievement.  On the tennis court, in the classroom and in daily life, achieving a peak performance is complex.

Each human performance act requires an individual to efficiently integrate an unique combination of physical fitness, technical expertise, tactical strategy, and psychological skills. Mental coaches are experts in the field of sport and performance psychology and understand how decision making, beliefs, images, and feelings affect and are affected by performance acts. Elite Tennis Development Mental Coaches utilize this expertise to assist performers to develop their ability to be focused, determined, committed, and confident in all performance circumstances.  

The development of psychological skills requires a systematic training program designed to utilize the performers’ strengths, address self-imposed weaknesses while remaining focused on achieving targeted goals even in the face of unexpected challenges.

Interactive Metronome

Interactive Metronome is a revolutionary Brain Fitness technology that helps children & adults make functional gains in their everyday life. These gains can range from walking to talking, reading to writing and sports performance.

Interactive Metronome is a computer-based therapy that improves motor planning, timing and sequencing, all of which are considered fundamental capacities for learning and performance. The one-minute assessment uses headphones, hand and foot sensors to determine how closely a participant responds to computer-generated musical beats.

Interactive Metronome's game-like auditory-visual platform engages the athlete and provides constant feedback at the millisecond level to promote synchronized timing in the brain. Exercises can be customized and involve a hierarchy of increasingly complex and precisely timed motor movements intertwined with gradually higher& faster cognitive processing, attention and decision-making.

The program can be used for enhancement of cognitive and athletic performance:

• General brain fitness
• Academic improvement
• Sports performance
• Career advancement

Interactive Metronome improves coordination and timing, and teaches an athlete’s mind how get into and stay “in the zone”, shut out distractions and stay focused in the play. This means better performance and judgment with fewer mistakes and penalties. That’s why the Miami Dolphins, Notre Dame, Syracuse, and Elite Tennis Development use Interactive Metronome.
