Julie Jones,

Certified Mental Performance & 

Mindset Coach 

As a former collegiate head coach, I have always understood the importance of mental training but didn't always find the time to make it a priority.  I have run practices, trained athletes, led staff and peers, and prepared for competition, just like you. I understand how difficult it is to fit everything into the time we have with our teams - so mental training sometimes takes a back seat to other training priorities. 


Ask champions what separates average and excellent and they will tell you the difference is a mental edge!  Let me help you and your team by managing your mental performance program.  Save time, have a set plan, make a commitment to up your game without extra work! 

My experience as a coach helps me design programs to fit your program and your time constraints.  From in-practice training to group sessions and workshops for your athletes and staff, together we will implement innovative solutions integrating a program that fits your schedule.  My focus is always on building efficient and results-driven programs that will increase the well-being and performance of your team.

Let me take mental training off your "to do" list and build a program that will enhance the performance and the lives of everyone in your program!

I thoroughly enjoyed Julie's perspective as a former coach as a backdrop for the workshop and information presented. Her knowledge and delivery in an open forum allowed for a comfortable learning environment and meaningful discussion; and I would highly recommend her workshop to anyone interested in gaining that "mental edge." Thank you again Julie for your passion and motivation, and I look forward to having you work with our team!"
