Dr. Rob Gilbert is one of the world’s leading experts on Sport Psychology. As a professor at Montclair State University, he teaches Sports Psychology and also researches athletic motivation and teamwork, studies that have helped literally thousands of athletes defeat their mental problems. He has studied the mental skills of not only the world’s greatest athletes, but also the most successful business executives and highest-earning sales people.
In the intensely competitive world of athletics, he finds that “it’s minds, not muscles, that win games, and I mentally coach athletes how to become winners, says Dr. Gilbert. Specifically, he trains athletes how to overcome choking, slumps, lack of self-confidence and various other mental problems by using the powerful mental techniques from the field of Sports Psychology.
Now the Director of the Center for Sports Success, he has given over 2,000 speeches and seminars around the country on his unique peak performance methods. However, he is not limited to speaking to athletes and coaches. Business, educational, and medical groups invite him to address their meetings because they know that the same mental skills that make people winners on the athletic field are just as effective in the boardroom, the classroom or any other arena where people work to achieve success.
Dr. Gilbert motivates tens of thousands of people around the world on a daily basis through both his Success Hotline and his on-line Success Newsletter. He is the former editor of Bits and Pieces Magazine. As a professional speaker, he has addressed audiences as diverse as the cadets at the United States Military Academy to Fortune 500 executives.
He has joined A Vision in Motion as the resident speaking coach and trainer, with the goal of helping all speakers reach their full potential. This is something that Dr. Gilbert has done with much success over the past 25 years.
“Whether you are a 10-year-old athlete or a seasoned professional athlete, your biggest stumbling blocks are almost always mental. The exciting thing is that the mental skills necessary to overcome these problems and become a champion are easy to understand. But,” cautions Dr. Gilbert, “you have to know how to practice them. This is what I call mental practice. It is why serious athletes of all ages and in all sports need a head coach.”
