How Important is
Mindset?

Decorative arrow
Up to 90% of athlete success is mental

HUGE. Sports scientists estimate that an athlete's success can be up to 90% mental. Yet, most spend little or no time working on their mental game. Why is that?

The reality is that most athletes don't have access to mindset coaches or tools.

And that is exactly why Ryzer Mindset was created - to provide affordable, easy-to-use tools for athletes and teams to gain a mental edge.

Why are athletes underachieving?

Today's generation of athletes might be the most athletic and technically trained ever - but mentally, they are struggling and that causes them to underachieve athletically. Two independent trends among elite athletes illustrate this:

Shield with a downwards trend

MENTAL TOUGHNESS is DOWN

Mental Toughness scoring among NFL prospects is down 12% over the last decade.

Rain cloud with an upwards trend

MENTAL WELL-BEING CHALLENGES are UP

35% of athletes now suffer from disordered eating, burnout, depression and/or anxiety.

"I can tell you from my experience, it's very accurate."

"Far different than the more well-known Wonderlic test - which includes verbal and math questions you might expect to find on the SAT or ACT - the TAP bills itself as an "athletic mindset assessment." Its goal? To measure intangibles like mental toughness, coachability and composure."

Special Report for Parents

Most parents want the best for their children. It's natural for us to try to help them navigate the ups and downs of athletics. Even with the best of intentions, sometimes parents make things worse.

The custom TAP Report for Parent helps parents know just what to say and do in the most important topics and situations that arise in athletics.

This report guides the parent to help the athlete reach full potential but it can also help smooth out and improve the parent/child relationship.

"For less than the cost of one hour of hitting instruction, I was able to purchase the TAP assessment for my son. We saw the benefits of improved confidence almost immediately. The TAP is amazing!!"
