Josh Hill is a mental performance coach, dedicated to helping athletes and all individuals looking to advance, increase, or improve their mental skills in order to obtain optimal performance in their areas of competition. Arguably the more important and often times underworked, overlooked, and underutilized, is the mental part of the game leading up to, during and upon completion of a competition, match, performance, game, or any other task that is important to the individual. Josh helps individuals with issues like anxiety, confidence, internal and external pressures, motivation, burnout, fear of failure and success, concentration, negativity, judgement and many other very common issues that people deal with on a daily basis, that often times go unseen.
As a professional mixed martial artist with a record of 22 wins and 5 defeats, Josh is currently signed with Bellator MMA and ranked as one of the top bantamweights in the world. He made his professional debut in 2009 and has competed and trained all over the world in countries like Canada, USA, Russia, Brazil and Romania. Throughout his career he has become a Canadian champion, a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter Season 18: Team Rousey vs Team Tate, a 2x WSOF (now PFL) bantamweight title challenger and hopes to add Bellator bantamweight champion to his resume one day. Before MMA, Josh competed in a wide variety of sports at a fairly high level such as junior hockey, rep baseball, International rugby, high school football and a golf enthusiast. While rehabbing a serious injury that kept him out of physical activity for several months, Josh began reading up the mental side of athletics. He felt this was something he had struggled with his whole career up until that point and felt it had hindered many of his past performances, even the ones he was victorious in. He quickly became fascinated in the sports psychology realm and enrolled himself back into school, where he eventually obtained a certification in sports psychology from ACS distance education to add to his pre existing BA degree in General Studies from Brock University.
Josh feels with his education and theory based learning in the sector of sports psychology, accompanied with his lifelong athletics career, especially competing amongst the top level in the world, will be a complete package to help other athletes and individuals that are suffering within the mental side of the their game, or to simply gain every advantage possible over opponents or competition at some of the highest levels out there.
