Colorado Springs, Colo. - USA Wrestling is thrilled to announce its official partnership with Wrestling Mindset, the global leader in mental training for wrestlers. As part of this significant collaboration, Wrestling Mindset will be the "Official Mental Training Partner of USA Wrestling."

This partnership unites the preeminent wrestling organization in the country with a trailblazer in psychological training, ensuring that our nation's wrestlers have the mental tools necessary to dominate on the state, national and world stage.

Wrestling Mindset is no stranger to success in the wrestling realm. They are currently teamed up with two of Team USA's shining stars: World Champion Vito Arujau and World Silver medalist Yianni Diakomihalis. With a track record of fostering excellence and resilience among wrestlers, their partnership with USA Wrestling promises to bring revolutionary mental strategies to the forefront of the sport.

Gene Zannetti, CEO of Wrestling Mindset, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership.

"Wrestling is 90% mental, yet many still lack a clear strategy to develop their mindset. We've been privileged to work with thousands of wrestlers from youth to Olympic levels, and we are excited to further this commitment with USA Wrestling,” said Zanetti.

USA Wrestling is excited about how the partnership with Wrestling Mindset can impact the lives of athletes at all levels.

“Mental training is the key to unlocking your full potential, both on and off the mats. Wrestling Mindset supports both areas, helping athletes develop skills of Mentorship, Life Lessons & Accountability to support both growth (process) and success (results),” said Mike Clayton, USA Wrestling’s Manager of Coaches Education.

Wrestling Mindset has also provided mental training support to the U.S. Men’s and Women’s World and Olympic teams since 2015, helping them surmount mental barriers and achieve their peak potential. Their holistic approach to training focuses on building confidence, tackling self-doubt, and ensuring optimal performance under pressure – key elements in the world of wrestling.

USA Wrestling is steadfast in its mission to continuously elevate the sport in the country, and this partnership with Wrestling Mindset underscores that commitment. Together, the two organizations aim to bring about a new era of dominance, blending the technical and physical skills with unparalleled mental strength and a winning mindset.
