About Us

A PODCAST FOR ELITE ATHLETES, PARENTS, AND COACHES... As a Sports Performance Consultant, I've worked with hundreds of student-athletes, parents, mentors, and coaches. The most common hopes and dreams of these Student-Athletes and their support community are to get a D-1 scholarship, go Pro, or make it to the Olympics.However, they're often held back by pains and fears that include self-doubt, peer pressure, fake friends, making mistakes in games or practice, and criticism from parents and coaches. These personal constraints lead to barriers and uncertainties: such as no confidence, laziness, and depression.Sports Mastery has been formulated to help the motivated but struggling student-athlete to accomplish their hopes and dreams. But they can't do it alone! THEY NEED YOU, the parent, the mentor, the coach. This podcast provides the Student-Athlete and their support team with the systems and strategies to help them break through all barriers and limitations!The tools I provide range from visualization exercises to print out reminders that you can tape to the fridge. You can even listen to each episode with your Student-Athlete. Use the episodes as a conversation starter... because your relationship with the Student-Athlete is PARAMOUNT TO THEIR SUCCESS. Start now by downloading my FREE guide: "5 Devastating Mistakes Every Elite Athlete Should Avoid” at http://www.SportsMastery.comChannel this incredible content and YOU WILL aid the growth of your Student-Athlete as a student, an athlete, a young person, and a future leader.Your Coach,DeShawn Fontleroyhttp://www.SportsMastery.com

163. Keep Moving Like A Shark For Survival FT. Sugey Gomez

Staying Motivated During The COVID-19 Pandemic Sharks aren't being affected by this and neither should you. Here are some reflections and lessons that you should consider: 1. Keep Moving: Set small daily goals. It is important to recognize that these aren’t normal times, and your productivity is likely not at its peak right now. That’s okay. Setting daily goals can help you to make your day as productive as possible, but be realistic with the goals you set. 2. Carve out time in your day for more work and less bullshit. Work more at night when it's quiet and dark, then spend time relaxing in the morning before jumping into work later on. Get off Netflix and the F'n video game console. 3. Start a new project, invention, or business. Study American History. This country is littered with multimillionaires who came out of the worst of depressions, recessions, and regressions throughout the history of this country.

162. Understanding Biodiversity In Human Performance: Ft. Damon Fontleroy

As a coach, I'm always looking for an edge to develop my athletes. I get caught up with equipment, new technology, the popular coach's book for the month, etc. But now I'm beginning to look at each athlete that I train different. This leads us to genetics by understanding and respecting all of our historical and ethnic differences. Take a listen as we discuss biodiversity... Human Biodiversity (hbd) is very simply the diversity found among and between human populations that has a biological basis.* Each of us is biologically unique. Our genomes, our phenomes, our patterns of gene expression, our epigenomes, our microbiomes — none of these are ever exactly the same in any two individuals, even identical twins. Yes, you are all special! You’re not even the same person today biologically that you were when you were six — or sixteen (unless you’re still sixteen, of course). Each individual human is biologically diverse when compared to all other humans and even across his or her own...

161. The Importance Of Having A Mentor - Ft. Sugey Gomez

1. Mentors believe in you, even when you don’t believe in yourself. 2. Supportive relationships are formed.A mentor gives a mentee access to a supportive relationship. A mentor becomes the mentee’s ‘go-to person’ which is someone where he/she can get advice from and assistance into how to deal with situations and how to respond or react. 3. Mentors give objective advice and constructive criticism. They are authentic and objective people. They will tell you straight up if you need to change your attitude or how to deal with situations. With mentors, there are no guessing games or feelings spared, but the criticism and advice are still constructive, tactful and supportive. 4. Mentors help with setting reasonable and reachable goals, creating necessary boundaries and practicing the right disciplines to align your professional and personal growth. 5. Mentors become the mentee’s cheerleader and confidence-booster.They motivate and inspire mentees to go all the way. To never stop try...

160. How To Breath To Achieve Optimal Performance

Muscle-To-Mind Relaxation Skills (Circle Breath) Taking slow, deep breaths can help performers/athletes/individuals be able to lessen muscle tension, racing heart rate, or stomach butterflies. There are a number of breathing exercises, but the simplest and most basic one is a Complete Breath (AKA Circle Breath). Basically, a deep breath from inhaling via nose, a slight pause, and then an exhale through the mouth. When a Circle Breath is done right, a person looking will be able to see the shoulders stay relatively still, and stomach go in and out (similar to filling a balloon). Usually, folks will lift and lower their shoulders as they breathe, which actually creates tension. Here's how to have an individual do a correct circle breath. Have a client put one hand on his chest, and one hand on his stomach and see which one raises up and down. When breathing is done correctly, the hand on the stomach should move, while the hand on the chest stays relatively still. As the breath is inha...

To master the art of doing, you need to create habits and routines in the brain that are relatively resistant to quitting and paralysis-by-analysis.For the routine to become automatic, we need to design it with such conscious and deliberate precision that it's read made to run on autopilot. Step 1: Learn the pattern, crack the code A. Triggers B. Rituals C. Rewards Step 2. Make watertight rituals The ritual is the sequence of behavior steps you need in order to actually create a habit. You need to know exactly how it unfolds for you, and this takes some self-experimentation.

157. Student-Athletes Getting PAID???

In the fall of 2019, the NCAA decided to allow college athletes to earn compensation — but it says it's only starting to work out the details of how that would take place. The organization's board of governors said that it had voted unanimously to permit student-athletes to benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness. "We must embrace change to provide the best possible experience for college athletes," said Michael Drake, the NCAA board chair who is also president of Ohio State University. Ina statement, Drake stressed the need for "additional flexibility" in the NCAA's approach. Drake added, "This modernization for the future is a natural extension of the numerous steps NCAA members have taken in recent years to improve support for student-athletes, including full cost of attendance and guaranteed scholarships."

155. The Secret Is Doing... ft Sugey Gomez

SETTING GOALS IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM THE SECRET IS DOING Do. Or do not. There is no try. - YODA, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK It turns out that "JUST DO IT" is pretty shitty advice. It might make for a good marketing tag line and it's certainly one of the most commonly shrieked instructions from exasperated coaches, parents, and teachers, but the scientific reality is that this call to action is almost always ineffective. In fact, some evidence suggests that it can actually undermine motivation, confidence, and enjoyment. The sentiment behind just do it is perfectly well intentioned - stop overthinking it, stop talking about it, stop procrastinating, and stop forcing me to keep asking you to take action. We must turn our thoughts, ideas, and goals into action. A goal: An aim or action usually with a specific time limit. So having a specific timeline is important for goal setting.
