Why Holistic Performance Coaching?

Because no two athletes are the same, and what works for one person may leave the other frustrated or even injured. Holistic Performance Coaching is about finding your most efficient path to achieving your performance goals.

What I Do

By looking at every aspect of your lifestyle and training that contribute to performance, I can help you find the approaches that work best for you. This means we go beyond trends and fads in fitness and nutrition and get back to the essentials of how to nourish your body and mind in every training session. This means moving beyond band-aid approaches and short cuts, diving into the wealth of knowledge that your body is sharing with you everyday - and learning how to listen. This is a path of self-discovery, of working with your body to pursue your wildest goals, and loving every second of what you do. If you feel called to take your performance to the next level or overcome barriers that have held you down for long enough, I can't wait to hear from you.

Do I need to be an athlete to benefit?

If you use your body for what you do - you’re an athlete. This ranges from needing your body for work, for play, or for recreational or professional sport. Across the board the body still has the same fundamental functions and needs, and often these are completely forgotten or never learned, leading to pain, injury, and limitations. If pain, low energy, or fear of injury hold you back from living the life you dream of, then you have a performance goal - to get back in the game of life!


"I had problems with both my shoulders for almost ten years, suffering multiple subluxations and dislocations on each shoulder.  I would workout and go to physio everyday but still the problems persisted.  I stopped playing varsity volleyball at UBC and had to stop doing other relatively “safe’ activities such as golf because my shoulders were too unstable and I was tired of them constantly dislocating.  This continuous pain and instability caused me to undergo 2 surgeries per shoulder over a four year period and I was on the verge of quitting volleyball.  I began consistently working with Mischa after the 4thsurgery and the turnaround and progress that I’ve felt in the year and a half since he began working with me has been amazing!  The workout program and exercises that Mischa developed and progressed has me physically able to do things now in the gym or on the court that I couldn’t do even before I started having shoulder problems. Both my shoulders have never felt so strong or stable and I’m back to playing volleyball at a high level. The work that Mischa has done with me has been amazing and there is no way that I would be in my position without his support, knowledge and dedication!"
