Linda Martindale

I am a wife, a proud mother of four college athletes and two dogs (one is athletic and one is definitely not). I am also a former college athlete, a dedicated mental fitness coach, a motivational speaker, a high school boys basketball coach, a former college basketball coach, a friend to an amazing group, an entrepreneur, a mentor, an occasional podcast guest, and a non-profit board member.

My interest in mental fitness and its’ impact on student-athletes started when I began coaching at the high school level in the mid-1990s. My passion grew further when I started raising my own children who were all interested in participating in different sports and at different levels. I decided to actively raise awareness about the often-overlooked aspect of mental health prevention in sports and became a certified mental wellness coach. This has allowed me to collaborate with sports organizations, Athletic Directors and other coaches and use my own journey as an athlete, a coach and a parent of athletes to inspire others.

I am grateful to have the opportunity to share the stories of the amazing student-athletes that I work with and I’m inspired by those who are willing to put in the work.
