According to mental strength training specialist Steve Curtis, M.D., it is possible to train the mind to enhance physical performance. Mental strength training is exactly what it sounds like: training the mind to block out distraction and focus on the task at hand. Dr. Curtis says mental strength training isn’t just for endurance athletes; people such as golf pros and CEOs can benefit from strengthening their mind. Mental strength training helps develop confidence, which leads to high self-esteem. Dr. Curtis works with patients to develop confidence and self-esteem on a daily basis. He is a PGA-credentialed sports psychologist and neuroscientist affiliated with Clarian Sports Performance.
