The coaching process started with a deep dive into psychology as it is the foundation of sports performance. Here are a few topics that we covered during the first phase of coaching:
Identifying her core values and what they mean to her
Identifying her limiting beliefs and helping her overcome them
Articulating her Why (purpose) and using it as a guiding philosophy
Setting mid and long-term goals based on her core values
In the second phase of our coaching, we worked on improving her training schedule holistically. This phase was about strategy and tools. We structured her training so she can train her body, her mind, and her technique. We created morning routines and evening rituals as well as recovery practices where she learned the following:
How to become more focused
How to improve her fighting technique using mental imagery
How to get into a high-performance state on demand
How to process fights and learn from them
How to be more resilience
How to stay calm under pressure
How to keep pursuing her goals and remain committed to them
In the third phase of our coaching, we focused on accountability, self-reliance, and consistency. We analyzed Lani’s progress and got feedback that helped us regularly enhance each practice, process, and training program. We also conducted sessions before and after Lani’s competitions.
Lani benefited from the holistic, high-performance coaching program. She became calm, focused, more engaged, and undistracted. It didn’t take her long to be back in the game after having setbacks. She was learning very fast. She didn’t settle in the comfort of winning either; Lani kept going with a strong focus, winning one competition after another. Time outside school was dedicated to mat time, strength and conditioning training, mindset training, and recovery practices. She was committed to learning, growing, and achieving top results in competitions.
