Athletes: Do you feel prepared enough, each time you go out to compete?
When it comes to your training and preparation, how prepared are you when you go out to compete? We’re told (constantly!) that we need to be consistent, but how do you know if you are consistently working on the right thing?
You ‘know’ what you need to do, yet don’t always get around to actually ‘doing’ what you need to do. It’s one thing to ‘know’, it’s another to ‘do’.
We don't know what we don't know, so it’s not your fault. If you don’t know where you’re at, you don’t know what you’re really working on. And you can’t be effective about your training and performance.
So when it comes to your daily training, your weekly processes, and your competition preparation – where should you put your time and effort?
The Performance Framework
The Performance Framework is an analytics tool that allows you to easily assess where you are at, right now, in this moment. It shows you EXACTLY what your current training preparation and performance looks like, and provides you with the mental platform to build and improve on.
You are unique. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to mental preparation.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a solo athlete, or part of a large team. You are still completely unique in the way you think, the way you process the information coming to you, and the way you apply your skills.
So it makes sense to build a program that is designed for YOU.
And this entire framework takes less than an hour to build, uniquely for you. In fact, if you start now, you could have the clarity, motivation and forward-plan in place before your next training session.
Think about you, and your sport… imagine what it would be like to look at exactly where you are at, then have a tangible plan in place – where you know with certainty what is working; to have a handle on what needs fixing and what needs to be replaced – in order to be truly effective in your sport.
No more knee-jerk reactions if you stumble into a downward spiral of performance or hit a performance slump. You will have a robust framework behind you to get you back on track, quickly.

“My ability to now focus, perform and make the best decisions in all circumstances … I don’t feel like my results have been coincidental, I feel like I will perform every week and every game. The improvements I have seen have all come along so quickly, it is exciting because it still feels like its getting better and better.”

“Before I started working with Dave, my performances were a bit inconsistent. I had some really good ones, but then I’d go to a race expecting to do really well and I just didn’t perform. I felt like I needed someone to coach me mentally. I felt physically and mentally I was able to do it, but not all the time.”
Jake Parsons – Racing Car Driver
The Performance Framework is a simple, 3-step process to help you:
As a former international gymnast, I have learnt quite a bit in the professional sporting world about passion, dedication and discipline. From day one I became totally immersed in high-level performance and competition, developing an obsession for pushing and exploring my physical and psychological boundaries. And gymnastics, initially, gave me that avenue. The nature of the sport, the quality of the coaching and the peer influences helped develop a keen purpose, passion and discipline in me, the same qualities I would like to help you embed into your sporting career.
After many years as an elite head coach, I began researching the performance of the human brain. By studying many different disciplines of behavioural sciences, I am fascinated by our neurology and our sometimes quirky behaviours.
I quickly realised no single discipline contained the magic solution to sustainable performance, nor the key to understanding modern day behavioural mastery. However, I found by blending many of the different key components of performance psychology and behavioural philosophies, I was successfully creating sustainable long-term performance results, by increasing learning capabilities in athletes, students and coaches and reducing fatigue-based injuries.
And so I am committed to encouraging you, as an athlete, to explore all your options; to find solutions you may not have realised; and to help you see there are different ways of approaching things you may not have considered nor been exposed to before.
The Performance Framework is a culmination of 20 years of study and has been developed through the use of targeted mental and physical preparation techniques rooted in the field of neural sciences, such as:
Mental performance techniques allow you to develop an in-depth sense of structured and replicable control over your emotions, platform and performance, to better manage your responses and actions during challenging times.
Here’s What You Get
A 30-minute video training – walking you step-by-step through The Performance Framework. This video is delivered online, so you can watch it from wherever you happen to be.
A downloadable worksheet – your own downloadable Performance Framework template so we can go through each step together and build your own framework, as it relates to you in your sport, to keep you on track.
And the first 10 people to join me on the video training will receive email feedback on their own Performance Framework. I, as your personal coach, will provide you with targeted feedback on your Performance Framework.
And you’ll get all of that today, for FREE.
This framework has been battle-tested by professional athletes who are relied on to perform to the highest standard, consistently in order to earn (and keep) their place on international sports teams.
And because I strongly believe that implementing this framework earlier in an athlete’s career would help reduce the stress, overwhelm and injury so commonly experienced by elite athletes – that is why I want to make this same framework available to you, today, at no charge.
But this offer is only available for a limited time. Be sure to move fast as I only have capacity to provide feedback for the first 10 athletes who respond to me with their completed framework.
So this is a risk-free investment of your time.
Consistency is our number one indicator of success. So we best know what we need to do, consistently, in order to get that success. If consistent performance is often an issue for you, think how much it is costing you every day that you don’t take action on this problem.
To your sporting success,
P.S. The Performance Framework is a tool that allows you to easily assess where you are at, right now, in this moment. Applying solution-based thinking to the top 3 inhibitors of our performance through the lens of this robust framework allows us to map our progression, skill acquisition – and build controlled, incremental growth.
