To inspire and guide athletes to be the best that they can be.
PowerShift Sports Inc. is unique in its approach. Many athletes and coaches seek to improve performance by concentrating their efforts on skill development and dry land training. Rita focuses on the other pieces of the performance equation: the effects of lifestyle and the mental side of the game. The “hard” reality is that training alone does not make you stronger or faster…these are benefits that occur during the recovery process when mental and physiological adaptation occur.
Proper recovery starts with changes in lifestyle choices and mental training. These factors become the corner stones for increasing ENERGY levels, which will lead to enhance performance, the ultimate goal of every athlete.
