Olympics Dream Big Clear Path

The Initial Step is to Dream Big and Plan Your Journey to Success:

The initial step is to Dream Big and Plan Your Journey to Success:

  • Believe in yourself! Declare it aloud.

This quality is shared by those I have collaborated with.

Mariah Denigan Olympian 10k open water

Take Mariah Denigan, for instance, who at age 13 expressed her desire to compete in the Olympics. Seven years later, she is headed to the Paris Olympics for the 10K open water event, a privilege granted to only 22 women worldwide.

  • Consider Grant House, who at 14 aimed to break records, elevate a college swim program, transition to professional swimming, and compete in the Olympics. By the end of his high school days, he had become the most successful male high school athlete in Ohio, contributed to ASU's first-place conference finish and second place at the NCAA's, pursued professional swimming, and is now on the path to the Olympic trials for an Olympic berth.

  • There was a cross-country athlete who initially aimed to remain healthy, finish races strongly, and earn a spot running for Northwestern. She made remarkable progress by reducing her time by

over 2 ½ minutes, achieving a second-place finish in the State of Ohio, and attracting Northwestern attention before the halfway mark of her cross-country season.

  • Another example is a football quarterback who, upon completing his freshman season weighing only 150 pounds, aspired to play in college. He worked his way up to 210 pounds, becoming stronger, faster, leaner, and securing a college playing position.

If you are uncertain, remember: it is better to decline an opportunity than to miss out on one.

The subsequent step involves devising a strategy based on sports nutrition and testing. Develop a roadmap outlining achievable milestones and set measurable objectives to progress towards your goals.

The path to success is seldom linear. By upholding a positive mindset, remaining dedicated to your aspirations, and consistently refining your strategies, you will be well on your way to realizing the greatness you strive for. Keep envisioning grand goals, and let your unwavering resolve illuminate the way to your exceptional future.

Stay health & injury free

Staying Healthy and Injury Free

Staying healthy and injury free because

  • The best athletes in the world get less sick and less injured so they can consistently train.

  • Nutrition, recovery, repair and testing are imperative to the success of this piece. Yes there are other factors, but this is the foundation!

  • More in depth on Youtube:


Look for a Sports RD

Look for a Sports RD (Registered Dietitian-who is a medical professional) who tailors their approach to your requirements, cuts through the noise, eliminates guesswork, provides peace of mind, optimizes each stage, and is privileged to be part of your vision.

  • Beware of terms like nutrition coach or nutritionist; you need a Sports RD. They must have the RD designation to properly guide your athlete. Personal trainers, strength coaches, and high-level athletes can only offer general education. The aim is to personalize the plan to your body, goals, and adjust as needed.

Why is this crucial? Sports RDs’ can do more than educational information. Here are some personal examples of athlete’s I have worked with.
