As the founder of Peak Performance Sports in Orlando, Florida, Dr. Patrick J. Cohn is dedicated to instilling confidence and composure; and teaching effective mental game skills using mental training strategies.
Having earned his doctoral degree in Education specializing in Mental Training for Athletes, Dr. Cohn has extensively studied and interviewed hundreds of athletes to develop strategies to enter “the zone” faster and stay there longer. Experts in the field of sports psychology regard him as the leading authority for entering the zone and pre-performance routines.
Dr. Cohn has been a mental toughness coach to athletes, teams and coaches worldwide from a variety of sport backgrounds for nearly 15 years. He has consulted with the likes of the Miami Dolphins, A.J. Allmendinger, Brian Watts, and J.L. Lewis.

Expanding on his experiences both personally and professionally, Dr. Cohn has created the MGCP certification program to provide coaches and other athletic professionals with mental game and mental training strategies for peak performance.
