“I don’t love injuries, but they teach you a lot about who you are and what you can overcome.”

  • Will Bartholomew

Sports injuries happen. Dealing with them mentally is as taxing, if not more so, than dealing with the injury itself. The Injured Athlete’s Club podcast, hosted by Mental Skills Coach Carrie Jackson and Journalist, Cindy Kuzma, talks to athletes and their families about overcoming the obstacles that come with a sports injury.

In this powerful episode, Will Bartholomew, CEO and founder of D1 Training, talks about his own injury and how what came next changed the trajectory of his life.

“It’s the first time in your life, and it has happened several times in my life, where you are dealt something that takes away your identity.”

Bartholomew, now a parent of high school and college athletes, offers useful advice to parents of injured athletes as well. He talks about the importance of focusing on the right things and surrounding yourself with the right people.
