Dr. Patrick Cohn, Master Mental Game Coach

As the founder of Peak Performance Sports in Orlando, Florida, Dr. Patrick J. Cohn teaches effective mental game skills to athletes and coaches using sport psychology strategies.

Having earned his doctoral degree in Education specializing in Sport Psychology 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.

His experience as an athlete, researcher, and mental training expert has helped hundreds of athletes as well as athletic coaches, trainers and mental coaches in training identify the mental obstacles that prohibit peak performance.

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.

Not only is Dr. Cohn known as one of the nation’s leading sport psychology coaches, he is a recognized author (with more than four published books to his credit) and sought after as a professional speaker on mental game enhancement.

What Athletes Say

“Better And More Confident Racecar Driver”

“I think Dr. Cohn’s mental coaching has helped me immensely. It has taught me what to focus on in and out of the racecar. How to stay calm and focused have been key skills that I have learned which have helped me be a better and more confident racecar driver.”*
~AJ Allmendinger, NASCAR Driver

“The Last Competition Went Perfect.”

“The last competition went perfect. I would say it was a very positive performance. If I look at the videos and ask, do I look confident? Yes. Am I letting go of mistakes and staying in the moment? Yes. Am I instinctual? Yes. Am I positive towards my partner? Yes. So over all from a mental game point of view I would say this was a successful competition.”
