Are you trying to solve the WRONG problem?
How committed are you to trading success? Most traders have a dream of success and try to fulfill the dream with gurus, indicators, strategies, trading rooms and newsletters.
They are trying to solve the wrong problem.
After coaching dozens of traders personally, analyzing over 1000 surveys and trading personality assessments, it is clear that the biggest block to successfully increasing consistent profits is our own state of mind.
This is true of independent traders and professional traders managing billions. Most trader training avoids dealing with this issue because it is so personal and so challenging. It is much easier to just sell a new trading strategy.
"The Making Mind Muscles course has had a significant impact on my trading success. My profits in the first quarter have been much greater than previous quarters. I’ve harbored the dream of being a successful trader for many years. With Rich’s help, this dream has now become attainable. I cannot thank him enough for such a gift."
Mind Muscles™ simulators give you a low risk environment to build successful results. Just like the pilot who successfully manages a difficult, gusty crosswind landing on an icy runway time after time in a flight simulator, the structured environment of Mind Muscles™ simulators allows the creation and strengthening of new trading Mind Muscles™.
These new Mind Muscles™ create the confidence to execute a winning strategy, maintain success with increased capital and strengthen your long term trading edge.
What if, just what if...
What if you had a list of all the responses you needed to increase your trading success? What a powerful checklist that would be! But what if you also had a specific exercise that was laser focused to produce the best response under pressure of market activity for each new successful behavior?
Building a resilient trading state of mind is what this course is all about.
This course is for only a few traders who are ready to progress by improving their state of mind. To be engaged in this course you will need to meet some tough criteria.
- Active independent or professional trader
- Have at least $25,000* US in your trading account (*exceptions possible)
- Have at least one year of trading experience
- Be transparent with your previous and current trading results
- Take full responsibility for your trading decisions
- Be held accountable for your new trading behaviors to the group and your mentor
- Be interviewed by myself as part of the application process, Richard Friesen
Our motto is “No trader left behind.” What this means is that once you step into our boot camp mastermind group, we will not let you slide into old trading patterns that don’t deliver the results you want.
What will your experience in the Mind Muscles™ for Traders look and feel like?
First, you will take the Mind Muscles™ for Traders - Explorer course with everyone else. This is included at no charge - it is free for the Boot Camp group).
Next, we will have live coaching webinars where you will discuss your progress and issues for each lesson each week (we expect full participation from everyone).
Then, you will schedule up to four one-on-one private coaching sessions with Richard Friesen. These sessions will drill down on old behavior patterns that no longer serve you and create new trading behaviors. (also included, no fees involved).
Next, we will have online discussion groups moderated by a trading coach.
"Hi Rich, I'd like to say a big thank you to you. I've had one of the biggest two week periods I've had in a long time and much of it is due to the techniques you introduced to me. A mighty big bear hug from Tokyo."
But this isn’t just training.
It is commitment. You will deliver your trading results to the group every week. You will then receive the support you need to work with the issues that hold you back.
We will chart everyone’s progress (see examples here) on the major trading issues most of us face - see the image below. Your commitments to better trading behaviors will be under a microscope.
Why a boot camp?
Why this intensity? Most independent traders are alone in their struggle. This makes it very difficult to stop old expensive behaviors and create new, more profitable behaviors. This course totally reverses that isolation so you are not just “alone” but you are fully supported by other like-minded traders. If such transparency makes you squirm, please do not apply.
I want all my traders to become successful.
(click here to read what traders who took just the online course are saying) With the online course alone, I can’t reach out to support traders that are struggling. With the structure of the Mind Muscles™ for Traders Boot Camp with its limited enrollment, I can reach out to make sure all traders can maximize their gains.
My guess is that I lost about 75% of traders who started reading this page. This is OK because this course is limited to 25 dedicated traders only.

Mind Muscles™ for Traders
"Before I started Boot Camp, I was all over the place. Jumping around looking for the special thing that was going to help me. Since working in the Boot Camp I now have a better perspective. I understand what it takes to be a successful trader and where I am in that process. I so much liked being part of the group I signed up to do it again!"
"I don't even know where to start. I had an absolute blast in the Boot Camp. I got great input from the private coaching. I have enjoyed the group sessions. And Rich's guidance has made this a successful journey. This not only made me a better trader, but a better person."
- David Hawthorne
