Mental Fitness is the New Physical Fitness.

Meet Cara Bradley

The focus of my work is to teach you how to get “mentally fit” and experience more “on” days – days where you’re operating at your optimal state—days when you feel and perform your best. I am particularly passionate about building awareness of body-mind states and sharing practices to regulate the nervous system and prime the gut-brain connection.

I’m the Founding Member of the Mental Fitness Collective, author of the bestselling book: On The Verge: Wake up, Show up and Shine (New World Library) and Host of the Daily Whispers podcast. In 2021, I produced the first ever Mental Fitness Bootcamp and, in 2020, was named one of the “12 Most Powerful Women in the Mindfulness Movement” by Mindful Magazine.

My signature body-brain strategies have led to partnerships with Amare Global, Mindful Magazine, Mindful Leader, Flow Genome Project, and with wearable and wellness brands including Insight Timer, RoundGlass, Muse and Happify.

My work in mental fitness stems from over 18 years as the founder and director of Verge Yoga & Meditation Center and as a mental strength coach to professional sports teams and over a dozen Division-I collegiate sports teams including the National champion Villanova University Football and Men’s Basketball team.

Finally, as a former competitive figure skater, I turned professional in my teens and had an absolute blast in my twenties finding flow while traveling the world teaching and performing for Rollerblade ®.
