Championship Performance Group
Sports Performance Consultation
We provide a comprehensive approach that involves body, mind, and spirit. We understand that athletic training requires customized steps at different developmental levels. Unfortunately, the emphasis in athletic training is on physical development; to the exclusion of the mind and spirit, resulting in an imbalance within the athlete. This internal dissociation is often the cause of poor performance, inadequate preparation, and ultimately, athletic struggle and failure.
Our approach is to help the athlete work with the forces of nature. There are four natural laws of nature that are important to understand: Non-resistance, Accomodation, Balance, and Natural Order.
An example of our work involves the use of non-resistance. When tension or anxiety exists in the athlete, they are going against the “forces of life”. When confronted with this scenario, the athlete has choices:
- Surrender to it.
- Ignore it.
- Resist it.
- Use it.

If the athlete surrenders to it, the past is bound to repeat itself. If they try to ignore it, there will still be residual, subtle aspects in their performance. If the athlete tries to resist it, they are wasting energy. The athlete should use it; become aware….by seeing it for what it is, it allows the athlete to master it. The obstacle here is the resistance of an athlete to look at his weaknesses. If we do not understand our weaknesses and imperfections, our competitors will continue to exploit them. By incorporating these lessons, we become students of ourselves and fully developed athletes.
