Along my path to becoming Owner of JVH

PERFORMANCE I learned life lessons that could

never be replaced. Although my credentials SEEM

like I’ve had a lot of success, it wasn’t enough. I

trained tirelessly from the young age of 13 and

instantly fell in love with sports, winning, training, the

battle and everything that goes along with it.

However, I never really reached my true potential.

Why? My biggest downfall was that I was never fully

prepared, mentally that is.

I would always train harder than everyone around me,

keeping in mind that my opponent or opponents could

very well be doing the same. Often times I wasn’t

training the right way due to the fact that there weren’t

many strength or performance coaches while I was

growing up. However, I still trained as hard as I

possibly could with the knowledge I did have and the

tools that were available to me. Even with that I

experienced a lot of 2nd place finishes. Best-case

scenario, a team championship at the county,

regional, or sectional level, which is great, but zero

state championships (aside from the Junior League

All-Star Baseball team in 2000). I always felt that I

deserved to win it all or the team I was on deserved to

win it all. After years of learning and educating myself

with my training business, it’s all so clear now. I didn’t

have the confidence or mind-set to be a true

champion.

So much of winning and VICTORY is about mental

toughness and maintaining a strong mind. Physically,

I was always well prepared, but mentally there were

times where I just didn’t have the mental toughness or

confidence to persevere. That fact right there led me

to pursue this business. The business of creating

champions, the business of teaching younger athletes

how to overcome adversity, the business to strive for

goals, the business to win at EVERYTHING. THE

BUSINESS OF DOING IT ALL WITH INTEGRITY.

We understand that every athlete we coach will not be

a champion in the sports arena. We will do all that we

can to prepare our athletes, but winning at the highest

level is never guaranteed. However, we will teach our

athletes how to consistently give their best effort and

be completely committed to achieving their vision.

The life lessons they’ll learn on their journey to

achieving their vision will lead to success in sport, but

more importantly, success in life! Our main goal as

passionate Coaches is to have each athlete become

a CHAMPION IN LIFE!

That’s right, the JVH TEAM. Myself and the Coaches

at JVH PERFORMANCE truly care about the success

of each and every athlete that seeks our training

programs. We will celebrate with you and give you

praise for extra efforts and accomplishments, but we

will also let you know when you’re not doing

everything you can to reach your goals. All of the

experienced in a number of sports and we continue

Coaches here are very well educated and

our knowledge of training on a daily basis to deliver

the best training methods to help our athletes

succeed.

We love what we do, we will never get tired of all the

small VICTORIES or the past failures that we learn

and grow from.
