MENTAL SKILLS PERFORMANCE COACHING
Often times an athlete may experience limitations around open water swimming, high-intensity sets, hilly bike courses, adverse weather or pre-race nervousness. Others may aspire to greater accomplishments, such as personal records, podium spots and qualifying race results (okay, let’s say it — Kona!), and find themselves missing an edge to get them there. Finding the tenacity to go really hard in a race or training session can be elusive and an athlete may find “something missing” when going at that top effort. Recovering from an upset: a bad race, getting jostled or running out of air in the swim, or a bad bike crash may require some adjustments in your thinking. These are just a few examples of where your thoughts vs. your physical training may be holding you back from your full potential as an athlete.
Bringing it all together during competition can be a challenge and the goal of a Performance Mental Skills Session is to help you engage your mind and move it toward your full potential as an athlete. Every athlete is unique and as such, sessions are tailored to individual goals. You can expect to go through a process that helps to identify what you would like to achieve and address the specific issues using a variety of effective, simple, fast, durable and instantly verifiable techniques, so you can find relief from the things that hold you back, and gain momentum toward your goals. Fortunately, feelings of apprehension, tension, nerves or anxiety readily yield to these quick techniques, some of them taking only 10 seconds.
With a Performance Mental Skills Session, athletes are typically on their way, and incorporating their new gains within 1-3 sessions. Each session is $60.
Sessions are held in person, via Skype or FaceTime.
Will Murray is our go-to resource for mental skills advice. He has helped hundreds of athletes from beginners to Olympians use their heads to do more than just hold their hats!
- Preparing for an ‘A’ race
- Recovering from an upset (E.g. a bad race or crash)
- Resolving the negative voices in their head
- Taming any degree of performance anxiety
If you’re into endurance events at any level, an applicable nutrition & hydration regime is just as important as the right training plan! What you choose to eat and drink, and the timing of each, can have a direct and profound impact on how you feel today, as well as the quality of your workout two days from now. One of the most important benefits of your nutrition is supporting your training volume. You want your body to realize the training you’ve invested in throughout the entire season and nutrition is part of the equation!
The goal of working with a nutritionist is to help you enhance your athletic pursuits through your diet. Every athlete is unique and as such, your nutritional needs are different. You can expect to have an initial consultation and to complete an extensive questionnaire so that our nutritionist can tailor a program specific to you. Let’s make sure you head out the door for your next workout or race literally fueled for success!
There are three choices for nutrition consulting:
- $250* for a monthly plan and a weekly check-in.
- $210* for a three plus month commitment.
- $180* for a monthly plan and bi-monthly check-in.
- $80* for a monthly plan and one check-in per month.
*There is a $120 set-up fee for all levels.
Megan Forbes is our go-to nutritionist. She herself is passionate about sports and has helped hundreds of athletes turn their training and racing around with her philosophy that looks at the total person. Not only on dietary intakes and supplements; but lifestyle, prevention, and the use of natural therapies.
- Athletes who would like to have energy for training and racing
- Athletes who need to incorporate or accommodate for dietary restrictions in their training
- Athletes who want to better prepare their bodies for endurance sports with nutrition
RACE DAY FUELING
You train hard, you focus on the right aspects of intervals, speed, and distance. You spend hours in the pool, on your saddle, and in your running shoes. We know that your goal – be it a sprint or full Ironman – is important to you! You are dedicated, and we realize it. You’ve written a race plan and you are ready to go. Race day comes, and you are expecting a PR based on all of your effort leading into the race. However, if you didn’t hit your expected race times, your race day fueling strategy might be the culprit.
This may not seem intuitive because you used products that you used during training, but pursuing insight into your fueling strategy may very well be the bump you need to take your performance to the next level.
With a consultation from our race day fueling expert, you can expect to maintain your energy for the duration of the race (or tough workout)! This is a different service from ‘nutrition consulting’ because your race day fueling strategy is about dialing in your specific fueling needs for race day. And this system is based on important metrics such as sweat rate, caloric needs and more as they play out for you during a race.
The goal of working with our race day fueling expert is to help you go the distance without bonking during a training session or on race day. Every athlete is unique and has different fueling requirements, and as such, you can expect to have an initial consultation with our race day fueling expert, complete a detailed intake and evaluation form that will explore sweat rate, caloric needs, current products, opportunities in training for trials with correct amounts of fluids, electrolytes, and other fueling strategies. Through this information as well as providing our race day fueling expert with which race(s) you want to ensure you have your fueling strategy dialed in, he will make recommendations to try during training. These recommendations will continue until a satisfactory plan is developed for the identified race.
An evaluation and strategic plan for a single race – $200 ($165 for D3 Athletes). A second (and all subsequent races) are $165 ($125 for D3 Athletes).
We are confident in our ability to help you develop a race day nutrition and fueling strategy that will help you stay energized, avoid bonks, and sustain through to the finish line. One or two race evaluations will do the trick!
Sessions are conducted via e-mail, phone or Skype.
Nick Suffredin is our go-to expert for race day fueling. His experience in the human performance laboratory at the Gatorade Science Institute sets him apart! He incorporated components such as sports nutrition, sports psychology, exercise physiology, motor behavior, biomechanics, and strength and conditioning into his targeted research testing elite professional athletes to enhance their hydration and nutrition intake to improve their performance.
