Sports Nutrition and Mental Performance

Don’t let what you eat or think affect your athletic performance. The Banner Sports Medicine High Performance Center offers expertise and solutions for addressing performance nutrition and mindset. We help athletes of all ages and skill levels perform at their best – physically and mentally.

Sports Nutrition

The goal of performance nutrition is to help athletes and performers optimize their intake of nutrients in order to improve their health, performance and recovery.

Performance nutrition includes the following:

  • Nutrient timing: When to eat nutrients before, during and after training or competition
  • Fueling: What nutrients and amounts to consume pre-, during and post-exercise to achieve performance goals and outcomes
  • Supplementation: Getting specific nutrients safely and effectively in the form of supplements to improve athletic performance

Athletes have individual performance nutrition needs based on their sport or activity and their body’s own unique needs. Our sports registered dietitian evaluates and consults to understand each athlete’s unique needs and creates a personalized strategy and plan to support their performance goals.

Mental Performance

The role of mental performance in sports is often underestimated. To succeed, athletes and performers alike need to have their bodies and minds ready to perform. Mental performance can have a significant impact on their ability to succeed, and it is something that can be trained and developed.

Some of the areas of mental performance include: 

  • Goal setting
  • Positive mental imagery
  • Perseverance
  • Grit/Determination
  • Self-esteem
  • Managing pressure
  • Managing emotions
  • Resilience
  • Return from injury
  • Fear of failure
  • Motivation
  • Focus

Our mental performance coaches help individual performers and teams develop their mental and cognitive skills, address performance challenges and encourage enjoyment and confidence.
