A client can typically expect to start our initial interaction with an assessment of their mental skills and a fun opportunity to get to know one another. I am always looking for 2 things before I work with any athlete. 1) That they feel we would have a positive and effective working relationship. 2) That they feel like they can get something tangible to help them accomplish their personal training goals. My initial session is free enabling and will always leave the athlete with an individualized method to begin training their most impactful mental skills.
Sessions after the initial will revolve around the direction of the athlete. Dependant on their chosen opportunities within the mental game we dive into activities, experiential learning, stories, practical training methods, workshops, or maybe even just a supportive 3rd party perspective conversation. Every athlete needs something different from a mental skills trainer so we start with where the athlete is at and proceed from there.
All sessions will end with a tangible practice method to develop the discussed skills. The athlete will also always have access to me as their coach to answer questions throughout their athletic experiences.

Client Reviews

It was extremely helpful to have worked with Nate. He helped me overcome a lot of negative self-talk and supplied me with a load of mental strategies for my tool box when I was in “the hurt”. Using these strategies helped me finish my goal race strong and happy. Probably the biggest lesson was learning that one must make a choice and actively choose your mind set. You can either succumb to the negative talk or choose to stay in the moment and focus on the now and things you can control. Thank you!!!
I was struggling with confidence and expectations before my first Ironman 70.3 and reached out to Nate for help. He did a fantastic job of cutting right to chase and identifying some patterns contributing to my race day anxiety and provided super helpful, tactical and personal strategies that I could use on the course. It made a world of difference in my attitude leading up to the race and provided me with mental techniques to employ on race day. I’m so grateful I was prepared with this new mindset when I dealt with some unexpected adversity at the race (minor bike crash), it didn’t deter from the day and I was able to put my energy into the variables I could control. I’ll definitely be practicing what Nate taught me and reaching out in the future with key races.
Mental Grit and Nate Last have had a tremendous impact on my son. I found out all about Mental Grit and Nate because my son got extremely nervous before swim meets and would not eat or would throw up. It was very disconcerting for me as a parent to watch him go through this and know there was nothing I could do to help him. He loves swimming, so missing these events is not an option. However, where do you go to seek help for this? I tried the internet, pediatrician, family, different foods and just talking with him. Fortunately, very fortunately, I was introduced to Nate. He met with my son one time and I knew it was a good thing. After two sessions with Nate, I noticed a very real change in my son. He can eat, control his nerves and hasn’t thrown up in months! More than that, he actively talks about goal setting and visualizes how to attain these goals. Equally important, this has spilled over into his school work and education. He uses the same techniques that Nate teaches for athletic events for test taking at school! I think his insight and work with my son has been invaluable. I know he will use this to achieve more success in all aspects of his life! I highly recommend working with Nate. Your athlete does not need a specific ‘problem’ to benefit from Mental Grit. I will proactively be sending my other son to Nate just to give him more tools to succeed in his life.
