From the End of the Bench to Pro Athlete


Here's a little about me.

I'm Julius Thomas, and I've dedicated my life to helping individuals like you unlock their fullest potential--PEAK. Whether it's on the field or in the boardroom, I know firsthand what it takes to operate at the pinnacle of human performance.

With my company, Mastery Development, we go beyond the ordinary and push into the extraordinary. We uncover what it really means to be at the top of your game. It's not just about being physically prepared; it's about mental  being mentally prepared as well. Fortitude, emotional balance, and mental flexibility are key mental performance factors that we all should have.

As a lifelong athlete in multiple sports, high-performance coach, keynote speaker, and consultant, I've had the honor of working with some of the world's top athletes, organizations, and corporate executives. From these experiences I have learned so many great strategies and insights that I want to share with youth athletes. I strive to provide youth athletes with the tools and techniques that I wish someone would have shared with me as I was beginning my journey.

After leaving the sports arena, I dedicated my life to learning how to best help others. Earning a Master's degree in clinical psychology and serving as a professor of neuroscience has allowed me to explore the intricate mechanisms of the mind and brain. As well as, the current best practices in mental development and health.

My roles, including Vice President for the Society of Sports Neuroscience and being a member of the Psi-Chi International Psychology Honor's Society, have only deepened my understanding of the challenges youth athlete s face to sustain mental wellness.
