Martha Cobo

My name is Martha Cobo. I am a life and sports performance coach.

As a formally educated psychotherapist and former competitive tennis player, with 20 years of practical applied experience training competitive athletes, Martha brings a unique perspective to the training arena. As the Director of Sports Psychology for more than a decade   at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fl., she created and implemented the Mental Conditioning program for all sports including; tennis, golf, soccer, basketball, baseball, and ice hockey.

Where tennis players such as; Tommy Haas, Jelena Jankovic, Maria Sharapova, among many others built the foundation for their tennis development. During this time she had the opportunity to work with all levels of golfers, from juniors to the professionals on the LPGA and PGA tours. She was instrumental in the mental development of golfers such as Paula Creamer, Sean O’Hair, David Gossett, Casey Wittenberg, Aree Song, Naree Song, Candy Hannemann, and Virada Nirapathpongporn, among many others.

Martha worked closely with the world’s best tennis coaches such as; Nick Bollettieri and Gabe Jaramillo, training many elite professional tennis players. She traveled extensively throughout Europe and South America with Gabe Jaramillo, conducting training seminars for players and coaches. She has also trained some of the world’s most famous golf coaches, such as: Gary Gilchrist, Jonathan Yarwood, Tom Burnett, Andrew Park, among others, on the importance of combining the technical training with the mental training for their development of players. She has since gone on to implement this program in collaboration with other coaches for the development of amateur and professional golfers.

Professional Golfers from the LPGA, JLPGA, Symetra Tour, Ladies European Tour, PGA,, European Tour, and PGA Latino America have sought her expertise in performance enhancement.

In 2001, Martha was inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame at the University of South Carolina Upstate, in honor and recognition of outstanding athletic achievement and for serving as an exemplary ambassador of their athletics program. Her success as a leader in the field of mental sports performance has been recognized by; CNN, as well as newspapers, magazines, radio, and television shows throughout Europe, South America, and Asia.

Martha first introduced her Mental Conditioning System integrated with Pat Etcheberry’s Physical Training System at the Professional Tennis Registry International Symposium in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina on February of 2014.
