The Coach describes how scientific training influences strength, and skills develop performance.

Train for a Reason: How to Develop Top Mental and Physical Performance in 20 Minutes!

The Science of Performance: a process of mental, tactical and physical development for the busy professional.

Dan Raabe coaches you through a measurable process that quickly develops:

Mental Strength

Personal Tactics

Skilled Movement

Mental strength is the experience of self control.

Mental strength is the functional neural processes that allow you to think clearly, make good decisions, and change routines that deter you from your targets. Self control makes it possible to move skillfully toward your goals.

Knowing your why, as in “why do you train?”, is the connotative path to a consistent involvement with your goals.

Are goals enough? Or are we really talking about outcomes?

There is a difference between hope and planning. There are those who frequent fitness classes hoping their perceived level of fitness will change. And there are the dedicated adults, with a higher purpose, who have a healthy relationship with physical training.

Skills involved demand a measurable process of training that leads to an expected outcome.

Successful people prioritize more time to participate in valuable activities that add up to greater mental power, sharpened perspective, and the type of physical performance that is measured by sheer grit and power. They don’t take shortcuts. 

Our most unmanageable asset is time. It must be scheduled.

Sports psychology pursues the question: Who are you at the critical moment?

What do you see on the playing field that you can respond to at the best of your ability? What is the opposing team about to do?

You are prepared. You’re in control.

The rigors of professional life require you to stay alert.

On time, on concept, on budget may be your credo for serving clients at the highest level. It is important to establish a broad tactical approach to achieving and serving.

Tactics are learned. Performance is built on verifiable results. Strength is the movement.

It’s our general skill and attention to our strengths that delivers good outcomes.

Train for a reason is a guide for your path to success.

If you are a busy professional there is a good chance that you are already involved in athletic activities. This is good. As adults we need to build an injury resistant frame and a healthy system to support our future enjoyment of life.

The difference between exercising for 20 minutes, and performance training for 20 minutes is the movement skills involved, the 10 points of fitness, and consistent measurement.

Work with a modified “interval.” Strive for excellence in movement. This is adult physical training.

Training is modeled to achieve cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, strength, stamina, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, accuracy, agility and balance. A model shared from trainers who came before me. 

The concept that you have to move and move correctly is not unique. Unique is the benefits attainable through consistency, and skill. For those who learns the skills, the benefits are assured.

There is science behind the training. Mental and physical growth is possible for anyone who takes the fork in the road where a choice between the status quo, and modern scientific thinking is offered.

Be the best you can be in all respects. Train for a reason.

I don’t self-identify as an athlete, I’m a business professional who is striving to be the best I can be at the present moment.

“I love working out with Dan. 20 minutes and I’m done. I have multiple sclerosis and was told I couldn’t do that kind of intense work out and I totally can.

Dan caters it to me, he adjusts the workout to my needs for that day. I can keep up with my family and have a good time.

I didn’t think you could do that much in 20 minutes and I love it!” -Anne Dann
