Wrestling Mindset was developed by Gene and Jeff Zannetti to help wrestlers reach their full potential in wrestling, school and life.
Co-founder Gene Zannetti graduated with a Psychology degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He has two masters degrees; one in Sport Psychology and the other in Clinical Psychology. Gene is a certified School Psychologist, Personal Trainer and Nutritionist. His masters degree thesis (Perfectionism & Anxiety) has been published in the International Journal of Wrestling Sciences. Gene was a nationally ranked All-Ivy League wrestler at UPenn.
Gene has studied the best wrestlers, coaches & experts in the world to learn the secrets of performance success. This led to the development of a one of a kind, trademarked Wrestling Mindset program. Since 2008, Wrestling Mindset coaches have worked with thousands of wrestlers, teams, coaches & clubs. The Wrestling Mindset program has been used by the Men’s & Women’s USA National Team, top college and high school teams & wrestlers, as well as youth and rec programs throughout the country.
