Graham Betchart, elite mental skills coach, has trained the minds of some of the NBA’s most notable athletes, including Aaron Gordon. Aaron and Graham have been working together since Aaron was 14 years old.
Realizing the positive impact mental skills training has had on his own life Aaron wants to bring this awareness and training to students and athletes. Developing these mental skills early has allowed him to build a foundation of mental strength and resilience. He’s had tools to rely on and Graham to coach him through each new challenge. The pressures that young students and athletes face today can be overwhelming. Aaron had the benefit of learning these skills early in his career – how to focus, how to center himself, how to turn nervousness into positive energy. This is much easier to teach someone at a younger age rather than an adult facing life’s bigger challenges.
Partnering with Graham and parent, Jake Gracia, Train the Mind®, LLC was formed.
There is this assumption that only professional athletes need this training, but the reality is kids are under enormous pressure today. Train the Mind® gives parents, students, athletes and coaches tools to create a mental performance game plan on and off the field.
