You've been operating under the belief that you STOP being an athlete.
My name is Paul and I was just like you. I didn't realize that hanging up my uniform for the last time would result in several years of floundering in a Halftime Hangover.
What is the Halftime Hangover?
It's the time you spend operating below your potential that comes after playing sports. And it doesn't end until you discover a new purpose that will drive you to train your body, mind, and elevate those around you like you did when you were an athlete. The Halftime Hangover ends when your second half begins.
When you give up your identity as an athlete,
you lose 3 powerful things.
When you stop being an athlete, you stop surrounding yourself with other competitors. You look around and the people around you no longer inspire you to chase the big goals you once did. Before long, you start becoming more and more like them and less and less like yourself.
When you stopped being an athlete, you lost direction. You no longer have a coach giving you a game plan to execute. You try to follow the old workouts you got from your strength coach, but eventually the lack of structure leads to body you aren't happy with and no plan to get back the power you once felt.
When you stop being an athlete you no longer had a reason to push yourself. You went from dreaming of playing on the biggest stages to dreaming of the weekend. Because you have nothing to compete for, your body starts to atrophy. You lose your edge and wonder if you'll ever get it back.
"I could reflect and see my progress and accomplishments which ultimately inspired me more. Without a plan, one that is optimized, one that you feel confidence about, you'll fail to see the results you expect."
"I swear by his style of coaching... with weekly check-ins, adjustments to my personalized program, and goal setting, not only have I had noticeable physical changes but also a stronger mentality as well."
"I am a completely transformed person inside and out. The cherry on top is that I have a brand new physique."
Athlete, Coach, Podcast Host, & Star Wars Fanatic
My name is Paul and I spent my entire life playing sports. I played baseball at Washington State University and I experienced my own Halftime Hangover for several years after college.
I allowed myself to believe I was no longer an athlete. I knew I was capable of more, but I couldn't figure out what was missing.
