The bigger the challenge, the more they stretch. And nowhere can it be seen more clearly than in the world of sports. You can just watch people stretch and grow” (Carol Dweck). Working with one’s mindset can greatly impact one’s athletic performance. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you are ready to stretch and grow as an athlete.
