How important is it for your athlete to learn how to train their brain? Is it actually the most important skill?


Listen in as I talk with Austin Byler (who played for the Arizona Diamondbacks) as he shares his experience.


Austin gives us some mental training tips and tools that you and your athlete can use to get started training your brain today!


Austin and I discuss...


  • His mission for Major League University and what "Rewrite Your Destiny" means for an athlete.


  • When he started taking mental training seriously and why he didn't own it earlier in his journey.


  • When an athlete is injured, why mental skills are so important.


  • His best advice for athletes and parents as they help their athletes navigate their own sports journey.
