Injuries, Illness, Rehab, Comebacks and the Mental Game

Two thirds of all runners and triathletes will be injured this year necessitating at least a couple weeks off as a result. Numbers can be higher in contact sports.

How do you handle it? How do you help others handle it?

Do you lash out, get depressed, angry, sad, edgy, short with people in your life? And what if your situation is NOT short-term? How about dealing with career ending injuries, illnesses and disease processes?

Chronic or recurrent injuries and chronic illnesses (like Lyme disease or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) need a longer term strategy to productively deal with it. And sooner or later we have to deal with not being able to perform as we once did.

Injuries, Illness, Rehab, Comebacks and the Mental Game is the new seminar starting at the end of August.

If you are…

  • Injured
  • Suffering from a chronic illness
  • In rehabilitation phase or physical therapy
  • Attempting to come back to sports
  • Taking longer with rehabilitation than anticipated
  • Unsure you will come back to your former self
  • Filled with doubts, anger, fears, depression, self-image issues
  • …or if you are a coach, teammate, physical therapist, or trainer you will benefit by becoming more effective with your athletes!

I’m presenting a 4-part seminar (online via gotomeeting) on the mental game of injuries, illness and rehabilitation. For only $139. Where else can you get this kind of expert advice and guidance to get you on the road to recovery NOW? You will spend more than that on a few physical therapy, x-ray, MRI and doctor office visits. Now is the time to invest in YOUR well-being. 

All the details are in this link so I won’t repeat them here. It’s set up so that all sessions will be recorded so that even if someone can’t make a session, it’ll be available to them the next day. Sessions are every other week to allow time to apply what is being learned. There are handouts, exercises, practical applications to do between meetings. And I have designed a mental game assessment specific to injured, recovering, rehabbing athletes. It will help pinpoint exactly the area you should focus on to improve your “mental toughness” as related to your rehabilitation and current condition.
