Buy Injured to Elite the Book on AmazonJoin the Injured to Elite NetworkIn this solo episode I share with you a section presented to a major Division 1 Collegiate Athletic Program, from my virtual Injured to Elite Masterclass Program. In the first few modules I cover "Time Zero" and "Pain Science" in order to better help guide those first moments after injury or your low point as a high performer. These can be some of the scariest times filled with a roller coaster of emotions and this is why it is so important to work on the mental and emotional elements of the post-injury process. It can be confusing when feeling and thinking all of the things that we do when faced with a physical crisis as an athlete. This episode will help you better guide that process yourself alongside your performance team. The Masterclass will be offered to the general public soon so stay tuned for details and message me on IG (Click Here to Follow me on Instagram @davemmeyer) and DM me if you would like to join the waitlist!Enjoy Episode # 81!My Website:
