VIDA MIND: THE BEST OF MENTAL TRAINING FOR TENNIS
Tennis is a mental game – of course you know this, but what you don’t really know is what to do to feel, think, learn and compete better. How to use your mind better? How to manage your emotions better on the court during competition but also during training? That’s what Vida Mind does. I’m Damien Lafont, director of Vida Mind, Certified Mental Trainer. I am based in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been trained with the best sport psych in the world, and part of the Mental Training Inc. Team working with the best athletes all around the world.
Vida Mind is the best of mental training applied to tennis. I use the best of Mental Training science, techniques and technology to help you to think, feel, and play better on- and off-the tennis court.
To help tennis players becoming the best players they can be and to have a fulfilling tennis and sport experience, I use 3 main tools: The Mental App, the Certified Mental Coach online course and the Parent Mental Trainer
I’m working 1-on1 face to face or online (Skype, WhatsApp, …)

PARENT MENTAL TRAINER (PMT)
Parent Mental Trainer (PMT) was written for MTI by the lead researchers at Michigan State University’s Institute for the Study of Youth Sports. PMT was created in response to the overwhelming need in the sports industry for parents to work with their child and coaches during the training process.
Parents want what’s best for their child but often are not sure how to make that happen within the sport realm. PMT teaches ideal parent roles, how to be a positive support, and how to control emotions while on the sidelines. For the first time, parents can be on the same page mentally as the coaches and athletes. The course pricing is $99 (USD)
