How to Stay Calm and Relaxed During Competition – Emotional Mastery

Sports can evoke a wide range of emotions, from inspiration, pride, exhilaration, and satisfaction, to fear, frustration, anger, and panic, often in a very short time span during training or competition. Emotions lies at the top of the Prime Sport Pyramid…



“Jennifer Heistand takes an outdated model of performance coaching and turns it on its head. Athletes, professional and amateur alike, are better informed than ever about the importance and power of mental clarity, but still in the dark about the crucial link between heart and mind. Jennifer not only explains the emotional and physical continuum between mind and heart, but coaches athletes — in sport, in business, and in life — to live at the crossroads, at the still point.” – Brian Dabul, Tennis Professional


Jennifer Heistand – Certified Mental Performance Coach, StillPoint Performance

I love coaching. I developed my passion through my son, who currently competes in college football at Washington University in St. Louis. After observing and guiding him through years of athletic and academic pursuits, I came to realize that my heart and passion are in mental performance coaching. I train players to realize their own innate ability to become self-aware of their mind and body, and specifically how to control and balance the interactions between heart, brain, and nervous system at any given moment while competing.

The results of a trained Heart-Brain connection include:

CALM through control of fear,
FREEDOM of movement and thought without over-analysis,
FOCUS on the competition, not on the outside distractions,
CONTROL over voluntary and involuntary responses, and
ZONE as the athlete perceives time slowing down.
