“You have to work on yourself first and we strive to give kids one thing….confidence”
Sports play a vital role in the lives of individuals all around the world. Many times when you see a great athlete on the field, they appear to have all the tools to be the biggest or baddest athlete out there. However, they’re missing the one thing to set them apart from others, and that is CONFIDENCE. Confidence is one thing the team at The Warehouse Performance Institute tries to instill in every competitor coming through their doors. It’s not enough to get bigger, faster, and stronger. You need to work on your mindset or mental performance just as much as your body.
“Nobody wants to show vulnerabilities because they perceive it as a weakness. Addressing vulnerabilities is the key to success.”
Throughout this podcast, McCoy and Romano explain the importance of “working on yourself first,” and the need to put pride to the side, peel back the onion, and find out exactly who you are as a person. Once that is achieved, you can become a better athlete and most importantly, build a better all-around person. If you do not have a belief in yourself, chances are you most likely do not believe in your own abilities.
“I made poor life decisions, and was heading down a terrible path.”
McCoy and Romano lean heavily on their own personal experiences and things they’ve encountered along the way to create “unbreakable” bonds with their clients. They get to know their clients individually, and provide a sense of understanding the situation that they are experiencing. Clients know McCoy played under Coach Nick Saban at Alabama, and that Romano had a life-changing experience in high school when a teammate and close friend died from drug overdose. It’s not just talk from Romano and McCoy. Athletes develop a belief when they come to The Warehouse that nobody is going to judge them which allows them to let down their barriers.
We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we have enjoyed recording it.
