 Free Mental Performance Seminar: Thursday, October 26th at 8pm
 Join Compete Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Mental Performance Coach Kojo Arhin to overcome the "Fear of Failure" and improve your sports performance. Youth and high school sports have become a pressure cooker for athletes to perform at their best in order to receive accolades, trophies, advancements to higher levels (in their sport), scholarships and other financial/personal gains. Whatever the reason might be, these young athletes feel the pressure and often times there is a fear associated with the anticipation of what awful things might happen (“The What If’s”). The purpose of the workshop is to educate and teach athletes in an interactive and fun way how to identify fear and ways to regulate these emotions when they arise. 

This presentation would benefit any athlete looking to reach their highest potential in their sports: ages 12 and up. Coaches and Parents welcome!

Compete Client Christian Ramirez Could Get a Shot at the USMNT

While Bruce Arena called up a strong roster for the World Cup qualifiers and friendlies this month, there is even more talent that didn’t make it. In most cases, the best players left off the USMNT roster are less experienced options who will likely get a chance at the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July. If they do well then, there’s a very real chance they will be part of World Cup qualifying in September and then into next year's tournament in Russia.

Here is a look at the players who aren’t on the USMNT roster now, but could break through later this year as the World Cup gets closer Click here for the full article.


The Ultimate Training Goal Should be to Get Stonger, Not Bigger

You can’t look at Instagram, YouTube or Twitter without seeing some pro athlete or someone trying to be a pro athlete lifting an outrageous amount of weight one time and showing how big or “jacked” they are. It looks and is impressive, but what you might not know is how much pain they have in their joints, how limited their flexibility is and how they can’t move fluidly. The goal of strength training is to improve performance, so is the athlete training to meet the demands of his or her sport or just to look better?
