Occupational Athlete Peak Performance Training

Due to the physical and mental demands placed upon your employees and the athletic nature of their occupations, you should proudly consider them as occupational athletes. But are your employees prepared to achieve peak performance?

We believe that just as athletes train for their specific sport, both mentally and physically, high physical demand occupations should also train for their specific job. The Occupational Athlete Peak Performance Training is an innovative solution to train your employees.

The Peak Performance training program is designed to help empower employees to make healthy lifestyle choices, take a proactive approach to their health and invest in their own well-being.

Our Peak Performance training team has a wealth of knowledge in personal training, life coaching, and emergency response. We are also privileged to have two recently retired professional athletes with over 20 years of combined experience at the international level.

The three main pillars of the program include:

  • Physical Fitness

    The trainers educate and guide participants through functional exercises customized to meet the demands of their specific job tasks to improve their strength, mobility, reactivity, longevity and safety.
  • Mental Fitness and Preparation

    Stress and anxiety reduction, flow state, and mindfulness are among the topics and exercises that are addressed.
  • Lifestyle Coaching

    The program will provide reliable information and tips on how to sustain healthy eating, proper hydration, optimal sleep and be physically and mentally fit to perform at their best at work and in life.

We know that each company and each occupational athlete are extremely unique, with different needs and interests. Knowing this, in combination with being aware of the breadth of topics in health, wellness and athletic training means there isn't going to be a one size fits all approach.

That is why we have created a fully customizable program that can be tailored to suit your company's needs, while leaving room for individual occupational athletes to personalize their experience.
