Lisa Mitzel

Author, Speaker, Mental Training Coach, and Educator.

As an athlete, I immersed myself in mental training. It was the strength and calm that led me through fear and injuries to win national titles. As a coach I continue to trust the process. I teach athletes, coaches, and parents to slow down and transform through struggle.  My work is a culmination of coaching, sport psychology, studies in human behavior, and meditation. I teach methods to increase confidence and success by tapping into self-awareness and emotional intelligence. When we dig deep, face humility and connect to courage, finally, through difficulty, we will triumph…together.


Lisa’s books have received glowing reviews: Steve Kerr, 3-time NBA Champion Coach of the Warriors calls Focused and Inspired “A revolutionary book!” and affirms that “Lisa inspires us to embrace wisdom.” Bart Conner, 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist says, “You will love Focused and On Fire!” International Gymnast magazine declares the Focused books are a “Must-read!”
