Performance is Multifaceted & Individually based

Mitchell Woods brings together a coaching experience like you’ve never had before. Having worked with some of the best elite performance coaches in the world; Mitchell has the capacity to develop your mind, body and beyond.

Feel like your development is missing something? Most programs are limited to a physical or non-physical modality. However, research shows that we are an integrated system where mind and body interact as one. Therefore it is essential to cultivate a program around the individual or team that addresses a truly holistic course of action.

— My Story

How It All Started.

When I was 23, all I wanted to be was an elite strength and conditioning coach. I had already completed an honours degree, trained elite athletes in several sports, published an academic paper on high level performance and presented at a national conference. But then, a snowboarding accident that required major surgery changed everything. To my dismay, my doctor told me I should “find another career”.

Rock Bottom.

This news was devastating to say the least. However, being 23 and full of gusto, I decided to ignore the advice and persevere. Everything in my body was telling me to “Slow Down”, while my mind, ego and aspirations were determined to speed up. I spent the next 5 years pushing myself to the limit, in all areas in my life. I worked, studied, trained (and partied) to the extreme. This high-paced lifestyle eventually caught up with me.

In 2013 my adrenal system crashed, his thyroid shut down and my cholesterol spiked. I hurt, everywhere. My body was constantly stiff and sore, even when I hadn’t trained, and my mind was a mess. My confidence fell to an all-time low and depression began knocking at my door. This was my rock-bottom.

Changes I had To Make.

I decided I had to make a change, or risk losing it all. The first step I took was to learn how to meditate. This had such a profound effect on my life that I started to change my perspective on exercise and wellness. I began gravitating toward practices to heal my mind, body and soul. I started training in a more nurturing way, listening to my body, and began using yoga and corrective movement exercises. I adopted a natural whole-foods diet and focused on eating to help heal my depleted body.

How I can support you.

With my already extensive background in physiology, sports science and performance, I learned to incorporate meditation, breathing and mindset practices to help athletes and other high-performers through their journey. My role as a high-performance coach is to help you and or your team develop and maintain the tools needed to live a healthy, balanced, fulfilled life – on and off the sporting field. This holistic approach has helped so many others achieve a deeper level of performance.
