Coach, speaker, and former Huffington Post Contributor Jay Hollingshed is now making a life-changing impact in the lives of athletes as a Mental Performance Coach. Mintonette Sports, a licensed member of the Ohio Valley Region of USA Volleyball, JVA and AAU, has recently roped in Jay as their Mental Performance Coach. Prior to this assignment, Jay has acquired a wealth of experience in helping athletes, achieve their best possible performance through teaching visualization, positive self-talk, motivation, goal setting, confidence, focus, and concentration.
Jay’s methodology of working as a coach involves teaching clients to establish healthy relationships with their potential and to seek validation from within themselves, rather than external validation from others. He has developed mental performance curriculums that allow individuals to fall in love with their potential. Jay believes that 80% to 90% of any performance is mental and that you are never physically prepared if you are not mentally ready. Jay offers individualized, and or group coaching, workshop facilitation, and public speaking for athletes and athletic organizations, students and educational organizations, entertainers and performers, and employees and employers.

During this stint, he engaged executives of Fortune 100 and 500 corporations and local government leaders to support the philanthropic efforts of United Way. Jay’s fifteen-year tenure as a Memphis fire-fighter was instrumental in developing his critical thinking and passion for helping others. While there, he became a trained peer counselor working alongside psychologists/psychiatrists assisting in critical incident stress debriefings (CISD) that were held after traumatic fire and medical incidents. Jay even received the coveted life-saving Medal of Honor for his actions off duty.
