Once my baseball career ended, I jumped into the corporate world, working and consulting for start-ups and Fortune 500 companies in both the United States and Europe. I was 100% committed to climbing the corporate ladder, making more money, and getting that "title" that everyone seemed to be seeking. To be completely honest, something was always missing. I found myself bored, frustrated, overwhelmed, and always wondering about the "next thing". I was never content, mainly because I believed that there was something greater out there for me. I knew there had to be more to life, the ability to truly use my gifts and talents each and every day. I knew that my overall potential was un-tapped and under-utilized.
Do you know what was holding me back? ME! No one else...ME! I finally had an epiphany during my career when I realized that if I want to discover what is truly possible, with my career, relationships, spiritually...in every area of life...that it was time to start digging in and re-training my brain and mindset. I realized that I could leverage all the mental toughness training I had as an athlete. I discovered that it was my mindset that was holding me back, just like what happens with athletes. And that's why I work with entrepreneurs and business leaders at Pro Athlete Advantage!
I have discovered that a huge population of people are struggling in their career or with their business. They also felt like I did, that they are leaving something on the table, that there's more potential within themselves, but they just don't know how to unleash it. I want entrepreneurs and business leaders to learn the mental toughness tools that I implemented, help them form the right habits, and truly discover what is possible in EVERY AREA OF LIFE! If we train our mindset, we tap into our potential!
It’s no secret that helping your athletes achieve great results leads to more engagement, more athletes sticking around for the
long haul (and buying into what you are doing), and a stellar reputation that your coaching is the best
To get results like that, you’ve got to have a ‘secret sauce.’ This secret sauce is way more than epic workouts or a certain number of reps -- it’s actually knowing how to
help your athletes motivate, push past the limits
IN THEIR OWN HEADS, and get strong.
MENTAL TOUGHNESS is the ‘secret sauce’…the key ingredient to take your athletes from good to great.
Whether you are a traditional sports coach (baseball, softball, volleyball, hockey, etc.), fitness trainer, or Crossfit coach, the more educated you are on mental toughness, and the more you have invested in intentionally and purposefully integrating mental toughness into your coaching, the better the results will be!
One of my passions is educating coaches and fitness trainers on the science behind mental toughness and teaching them how to uniquely integrate the tools into the entire life cycle of the coaching process. That's the way you will get the most out of your clients. In my Mental Toughness Coach Certification, not only do we define each person's unique coaching philosophy, but we add key mental toughness concepts to your arsenal (focused on detailed understanding and implementation).
Coaches are the true, daily influencers of athletes, and I want to make sure they are fully prepared to drive results!
