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!


"Mischa Harris has been one of the key components to the successes of my teams for the past 10 years. Mischa has been part of my road to gold program for my highschool volleyball teams, my college team, and my international beach teams since I started coaching at a high performance level. Mischa looks at the whole athlete, from their mental wellbeing to their health, as he believes as I do that all of these external factors come into play when an athlete is trying to achieve their goals. I have coached many different levels ranging in ages, competition levels and both sand and indoor...but one thing is constant...Mischa's professionalism and care for his athletes. I trust Mischa implicitly to mentally train, nutritionally support, physically train, prehabilitate or rehabilitate my athletes. I have never known someone to fall more in line with my values than Mischa. No one cares more about his athletes, or yours! Mischa I would like to personally thank you for all you have done for my athletes and programs over the years. From Team Canada to our provincial Gold Medals both my teams and myself could never have done it without your support. Thank you."
