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 started training with Mischa in May 2013. I had always been very athletic but at 52 years old, my flexibility and mobility were severely limited by knee pain. I was in constant agony and told by my orthopedic surgeon that I would need knee replacements within a few years. I had gone from golfing 4 days a week, hiking, kayaking and snowshoeing to a sedentary lifestyle. When I first consulted with Mischa he assured me there is always room for improvement. I wanted to believe there was hope. These last 6 months I have seen amazing improvement. I am no longer in pain and my strength and flexibility are more than I could have imagined. Stairs are no longer an issue and my gait appears normal. I have learned a lot in this short time. Mischa’s expertise has given me strength and flexibility and even more importantly, hope. I now have a stronger body that will be less prone to injuries of any sort. I hate to think where I would be today if I had not met Mischa when I did."
