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: Will-Power, Self-Control, and Self-Awareness

Your Mental Strength

Your Perspective

Your Skilled Movement

Your mental strength is the direct result of your Will-Power.

Will-Power is the executive inside you functioning through neural processes that allow you to think clearly, make right decisions, and change routines that deter you from your targets. Will-Power makes it possible to move skillfully toward your goals.

You must understand your why, as in “why do you train?” Take the connotative path to a consistent involvement with your goals. Activate. Take the first step.

Goals are the moving targets that you accomplish on the way to achieving outcomes. It doesn’t matter how lofty your goals are. You must set yourself up for action.

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. They don’t hope. Their pursuits are vested in planning, prioritizing and participating in the skills of performance.

Your mental and physical skills learned within the measurable process of interval training, is the difference between hoping you arrive at an expected outcome and falling short of the value you would like to see for yourself.

Your most unmanageable asset is time. It must be scheduled. You cannot hope to manage it.

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

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 using the best of your ability? What is the opposing team about to do?

You prepare. 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 essential to establish a broad tactical approach to achieving by learning new skills.

Tactics are learned. Your performance builds from results. Perspective changes outcomes.

Train for a reason is a beacon. You must have a path to follow. You must stay on task.

If you are a busy professional, there is a good chance that you are already involved in athletic activities. As an adult, you must build an injury resistant frame and a healthy system to support your future enjoyment of life.

The difference between status-quo exercise and twenty minutes of skilled performance training, is the movement skills involved, consistently hitting ten points of fitness. Training can be the one activity that is congruent with your broad goals.

Work with a modified “interval.” Strive for excellence in movement. Adult physical training is specific to the needs of a unique population.

Performance training develops cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, strength, stamina, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, accuracy, agility, and balance.

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 learn the skills, the benefits of training are real.

You can trust the 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 pales to modern scientific thinking.

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

We envy athletes. Their relationship to being fit is spectacular. We’re business professionals striving to be the best we can be at the present moment. Training like an athlete is the path to take.

“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
