Integrate your body and mind
Improve Performance in Any Sport
While every sport is unique, the way you win is universal: peak performance and a distinct edge. And with the level of competition rising at every level, you must train smarter to stand out.
The Mastermind Program leads the cognitive sports performance training movement for athletes at all skill levels and in all sports.
Elevate Your Game
You have the opportunity to take advantage of an innovative training approach to gain a performance edge in your sport.
The Mastermind Program is specifically designed to help athletes excel with the most comprehensive and concentrated training today in a wide array of sports.
At one moment, baseball is precise and methodical. The next, it’s a lightning-quick burst of energy. Cognitive sports training helps you perform at every position and level of baseball. Winning baseball requires a range of cognitive skills. At bat, you need a combination of visual acuity, reaction time, balance, and hand-eye coordination. Defense is no different. Pitchers need the right balance and body control to throw fast and accurate strikes. And fielders can save the game by making each play, relying on their precise depth perception, dynamic vision, and timing.
Think of how much goes into the ability to compete in hockey: you’re balancing on skates, fighting over a tiny black puck, and going up against aggressive opposition—all on ice. If you want to take your game to the next level, cognitive sports training will help you develop the coordination, spatial reasoning, and reaction time you’ll need. In a fast-paced contact sport, you must have a degree of mental acuity and physical ability to compete. But to win? You must excel as a whole athlete. Athletes who train for brain-body integration have an unmistakable edge.
High-achieving soccer players know what it’s like to quiet the chaos of the pitch. A solid foundation in cognitive sports training develops key skills like multi-object tracking, decision-making, and cognitive processing. When you train your mind and body together, the game slows down for you—and opens your eyes to your edge. When a single goal can mean the difference between a win, loss, or draw, the outcome can come down to a single decision. Whole-athlete training increases your advantage.
Basketball is a game of pacing, vision, and reflexes. Cognitive sports training improves game-critical skills, including balance, spatial reasoning, dynamic vision, and more. Whether shooting the ball, defending a player, or identifying your next pass, the brain and body are working together. Think of the blend of cognition and athleticism that occur in a single possession alone: dribbling and ball-handling, passing, screens, isolation plays (ISO), and scoring all have to come together. In the modern era of the sport, three traits separate the leaders from the pack: skills, athleticism, and basketball IQ. Elite basketball players understand their role on both sides of the floor—and the way they impact the game when their brain and body work together.
With a high degree of variability—52 opponents across three different units, dozens of schemes and plays, and every climate, not to mention its sheer physicality and hostility, football requires elite mental and physical conditioning to succeed. Linemen rely on balance, reaction time, and coordination to block and tackle—not to mention response inhibition to avoid false starts and other flags. Kickers need balance, focus, and mental resilience to make the game-winning field goal. Quarterbacks need to read defenses, track every player on both teams, make decisions and accurately anticipate and time their handoffs or passes. Backs and receivers—as well as their defenders—must get in sync with the quarterback in real-time, while tracking both the ball and their opponent, then balance their bodies, react, and coordinate their catch simultaneously.
Track and Field
Every event in track and field requires the peak performance of your mind and body: you need precise reaction time to jump your hurdles, sharp hand-eye coordination to nail your hand-offs, and a tight combination of balance and focus to shave seconds off your run time. Cognitive sports training improves your ability to act, react, and adapt at high speeds. Events are won and lost in degrees. The athlete with better focus and coordination will excel at jumping hurdles and executing relays. Jumpers and throwers compete on balance and body control. Runners with faster reaction times and better balance shave off more time than their opponents. A mental edge can virtually erase variables, giving you the focus and resilience to silence fear and insecurity and the ability to adapt your movements and thrive despite them.
