Personal note from Kip:

Kip Headshot 1Every day, I read the headlines about athletes who struggle and end up making poor choices. Memorable headlines include Junior Seau and Johnny Manziel. Recent headlines include the horrific abuse in USA Gymnastics and the suicide of a D1 quarterback at Washington State.

The banners I read show athletes get arrested, released, benched, sustain career-ending injuries, and get taken advantage of by others. And, on occasion, an athlete makes the drastic choice to take their life leaving behind stunned teammates, family, friends, and fans.

This drives me. It wakes me up every day with purpose. Why? At 15, I was one of those athletes contemplating suicide struggling to live up to my own expectations and the expectations I perceived placed upon me from family and coaches.

Image 042 cuAs a competitive gymnast, I had dreams. I wanted to be the best. I made the Hall of Fame at my gym after my first season competing. Where was I to go from there? I did not handle it well at 12 years old. I didn’t have the right beliefs, tools, or habits to achieve what I set out to do. My parents didn’t know either how to coach me through my doubt and fears. But, in all honesty, I did not tell them how bad my inner thoughts were at the time. The only way out at 15, I thought, was to take my life.

Luckily, by divine intervention, I did not choose death.

Through hard work on my mental skills---the intangibles---I overcame. I achieved many dreams including playing women’s professional tackle football in my 40’s earning my championship ring in 2008 as a safety for Dallas.

DSC 0190 2Why work with me? Whether you are an anxious 10-year-old wanting to go elite someday, the parent of a struggling athlete, or a professional athlete dealing with the pressures on and off the field, my desire is to assist you to discover and know your brain---the intangibles---and improve the areas you need to be a consistent high performer in every aspect of your life.

I want to see athletes at every age believe in their worth, value hard work, resiliency, and the team dynamic it takes to get the trophies they earn, the medals around their neck, and the rings on their fingers. When you work with me, no matter, your age or sport, you will know yourself better and gain the beliefs, habits, and tools to perform personally and professional at a consistent high level.

And, this leads me to my big dream--to never read of an athlete who took his or her life. I never want to see an athlete succumb to pressure, depression, anxiety, or make poor choices to land him or herself in a court room. All these situations can be prevented. I overcame, and for more than 20 years, I’ve assisted 1000’s others to overcome and achieve more than they thought possible when they first walked through my door. Let’s do this! -Kip
