Mental Toughness Academy
Helping athletes find mental strength breakthroughs for higher levels of performance and overall mental well-being.
The Mental Toughness Academy (MTA) uses proven sports psychology theories to help athletes achieve peak performance, through the teaching of mind skills and strategies.
It’s the teaching of success psychology (brain training) that will unleash the ability for young athletes to reach their full potential. Just as important, the skills learned are completely transferable to other areas of life such as; academics, social settings, performance arts etc.
World-class coaches of all disciplines agree that for an athlete to take their performance to another level, it comes down to how mentally strong and prepared they are. An athlete can train all they want technically and physically but if they can’t execute in a game when the pressure is on, then everything falls apart.
My MTA helps athletes program and reprogram where choices are coming from, in other words, it builds ‘success thinking patterns’, therefore, good, confident choices become predictable and are made at crucial times.
It unlocks the power of the mind!
Via the MTA I will be guiding athletes through a practical and thorough understanding of how they can take control of their thoughts, which leads to higher levels of confidence, motivation and resiliency.
They can turn to this newfound skill any time, under any circumstances and it will help them navigate through high-pressure situations to gain an edge over opponents.
The focus is to change the mindset of the athlete, which will enable them to get the most out of their hard work and dedication so they can perform at their best consistently.
The MTA programs are set up to support athletes for a lifetime of peak performance in anything they do.

“Gad was a terrific mentor and resource for our teenage son when he was looking for extra guidance to help him take his love of sport to the next level. His professional, perceptive approach is combined with authentic experiences and examples of how to use the power of mindset to improve performance; he really understands where athletes are coming from. We highly recommend Gad and his mental-toughness programs!”

“Gad’s mental-toughness team program was exactly what we thought it was going to be. It provided my players with a simple systematic way for them to learn about the psychological part of their development. The sessions were clear and new material was presented at a nice pace so that players could begin to implement the newfound strategies right away. I would definitely recommend the program to teams regardless of age or level”
