From Carrie Cheadle"I love what I do. I love working with athletes. I love helping people achieve their goals and have more fun participating in their sport. I’ve had athletes achieve amazing athletic accomplishments – things they never thought were possible for them. I’ve worked with athletes that get so nervous before their competition that they wonder if they should quit and can now show up to their events and not only perform well, but actually enjoy it! I’ve worked with injured athletes through their recovery and then have them return to their sport only to have their greatest season yet. I believe every person has the potential to be an athlete and every athlete has the capability of improving their motivation, confidence, and focus."
