My 17-year-old son worked with Abby to improve his mental toughness for competing nationally and internationally as a saber fencer. Abby is so professional, caring, and dedicated. She came very prepared to each session and put in a lot of work outside the sessions for planning. Abby also is compassionate and ethical, always providing solid coaching skills. Working with Abby was a game changer. She taught my son how to manage his nerves, how to take more responsibility for his actions, how to better communicate with his coach, and how to better enjoy competing. Abby receives my highest recommendation for exceptional coaching and humanity.
The increased confidence that I have post-training has been amazing. My times have drastically improved - due to the mental skills Abby taught me and being able to apply them during the race. In my everyday life, I was able to apply the breathing technique to deal with stress and anxiety that I was having. Abby was also able to pick up on my personality traits and incorporate those into the training. Thanks for all you have taught me and opened up with my performance! It has truly been a game changer.
Abby and John were great to work with. Both did an excellent job of instructing our team on the principles of team building, communication, attention, and focus. They instantly earned the respect of our players by being knowledgeable and professional. They used creative methods to make points and I know our team will continue to benefit from their lessons.

Abby worked with my twelve year old daughter who suffered a disabling eye injury during soccer. Abby was instantly likable and personable. My daughter felt very comfortable talking to her and was able to overcome anxiety and confidence issues she had been experiencing on the field due to her injury. This training was a great experience and I would recommend her services to everyone! Thank you Abby!
Intrepid Performance Consulting is an amazing tool for athletes! I am the parent of track & field high schooler and future Olympian! My daughter worked with Abby during her sophomore season and despite experiencing a normally season halting injury, my daughter was able to mentally bounce back and finish the season successfully! It goes without saying that I am a very satisfied customer!
Mental consulting with Intrepid helped me immensely. Triathlon is as much a mental game as it is physical. Abby taught me how to use my mind as a boost during training and also when racing. As a result, I had a great first Ironman race where I literally did not allow a negative thought take over. I thought positively throughout the race and I used my mind to fuel my body and not sabotage it. I owe this to my triathlon coach and Abby. In conjunction with my physical training, mental training helped me have an incredible race where I was happy the entire time and I cherished every minute of it!
We are a young business with a growing staff and this training was exactly what we needed to get ourselves on the right track. Abby was amazing! Each month she came in prepared to have us really dig deep into how our team can and should work together to accomplish our goals. After our meetings, Abby was great with a follow up email that outlined our discussion. She was always quick to respond to questions and without a doubt, we wouldn't be where we are today without Abby's guidance and assistance.
Owner - Athletes' Potential
Entering my 5th year of NCAA cross country and track competition, I sought out Intrepid to help in dealing with my debilitating pre-race nerves. However, my entire mindset around my sport changed while working with John. Going beyond simple techniques to calm myself, I learned how to approach my competitions with confidence and excitement rather than nervousness and fear. My training ability increased and every workout, run, and race became a joy. Before I knew it I was toeing the line with the best in the nation and reaching levels of success I would have never been able to without the mental training to be tough, excited, and confident that I could do so. Training with John allowed me to achieve a 5th place finish in the NCAA Division 1 Cross Country National Championships, and a double event NCAA Track and Field National Championships birth in the 10,000m and 5,000m. The best part is that John left me with a toolbox of techniques and effective thoughts that allow me to continue practicing and building mental strength in my professional track and field career. I wouldn't be where I am today without Intrepid.
I had the opportunity to work with Intrepid Performance Consulting this past summer. The team was extremely helpful, caring, and motivating. Initially, I was only able to run about a quarter mile prior to exhaustion, however, with this team and the Couch to 5K program, I was able to complete a 5K successfully running entirely. I highly recommend this consulting group to help anyone achieve their goals.
Working with Intrepid Performance changed my running career forever. John analyzed my entire running perspective and took note of my exact strengths and weaknesses both mentally and physically. We broke down every one of my mental weaknesses to the core and he gave me strategies to prepare for races, use during races, and even during workouts. As my coach, John designed a workout plan that best met my skill level and ensured maximum potential when it came to racing. He kept track of everything and knew exactly what to do in the event of me having a sick day or family emergency. All in all, I highly recommend Intrepid Performance if you are looking for that next step in improving your athletic career. They are extremely knowledgeable people with a passion for what they do.
