This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, is an ABSOLUTE GOLD MINE, featuring sport and high performance psychologist Michael Gervais.

Gervais is one of the most respected sports psychologists in the world, and has worked alongside athletes such as Felix Baumgartner — who jumped out of a balloon and through the stratosphere — to Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks to April Ross and Kerri Walsh Jennings. He is a master of his craft, and this episode is an absolute must-listen.

On this episode, we discuss:

– The importance of the mental aspect of sport, and how critical it is to make time for it

– How Gervais has always felt the swell of mental training coming, and now it’s hitting

– Why Gervais’ life mission is to help people live in the present more often, and how he’s helping them accomplish that

– Why we need extreme athletes

And so, so, so much more.
