Champion By Design

  • Have you wondered what some of the most successful athletes possess beyond skill?

  • Do you see others with similar talents and gifts having greater success?

It's Mental Agility, Resilience, and Confidence - a Championship Mindset - that makes the difference!


When you study elite athletes (pros, Olympic, major collegiate, even elite, young athletes) you will find that their nutrition, conditioning, and sport-specific training are comparable-developmentally speaking. The margin between good and great is getting smaller. The Championship Mindset - mental agility, resilience, and confidence - is the main advantage that elite athletes possess. We emphasize the athlete's mental game as a critical component for confidence and for releasing full potential in sports. Many athletes struggle to overcome these mental limitations, more than physical limitations. Others may be trying to work back from injuries with little confidence. We offer Champion By Design Coaching for athletes in any sport, at any level. We will help you be your best, and to get out of your own way - unleashing your full potential by "coaching up your mental game".
