IT IS NOT THE MOST INTELLIGENT OR STRONGEST WHO WILL SURVIVE, BUT THOSE WHO ARE ABLE BEST TO ADAPT AND ADJUST TO THE CHANGING ENVIRONMENT. – Leon C. Megginson

Evolve or Decay, gentlemen. It’s a simple choice.

THE PHILOSOPHY

In 1995 I began working with folks as simply a Certified Personal Trainer who specialized in core conditioning for golf and tennis, and wellness for individuals with physical issues and trauma, like fibromyalgia and autism. Granular study of how our physical health dictates our mental, emotional and relational health, and vice-versa, blew open the doors for pioneering a groundbreaking methodology. In a nutshell: the individual who keeps shifting his perspective and gameplan and deploys solutions across all key areas of life, is the one who is able to overcome more of life’s challenges and achieve greater successes. Alas, Survival of the Fittest.

Landing in Austin, I targeted my Fitness, Performance and Stress Management Coaching for entrepreneurs and leaders in the high-tech arena and became the only true full-service Executive Lifestyle Coaching practice in the capitol city.

Come full circle, with a diverse yet seasoned background in communications, leadership development and holistic health, I leverage every ounce of it for your benefit to build a disciplined, mindful track towards working smarter, thinking clearer, feeling healthier, looking younger and living happier. Both my approach and tools are complete game-changers because they  speak  precisely to the Alpha male mentality and lifestyle while preserving the high-touch elements of face-to-face interactions.

Headlines from Forbes and Huffington Post to the CDC and American Psychological Association spotlight the eye-opening correlations between physiological and psychological stress born out of the Executive & Entrepreneur lifestyle.  Personal, professional and social expectations and trials men face today are incredibly diverse, complex and pervasive; stress is erupting career burnout, health issues and mental strife, disrupting family foundations, dividing communities and picking men off in droves.

Perhaps the greatest issue is the Fight Club mentality that society, media & our own families still uphold for men: Don’t share or show what’s bothering you.

  1. IT’S LONELY AT THE TOP AND TOUGH TO FIND A CONFIDANTE
  1. MARRIAGE & RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS CAN DERAIL A CAREER
  1. MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES HIT HARD WHEN GOOD ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH
  1. PHYSICAL ISSUES HIT HARDER- SLEEP, HEART DISEASE, LOW-T, INJURIES, WEIGHT
  1. TRUST IS DELICATE WHEN EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN AGENDA
  1. THERE ARE NEVER ENOUGH OUTLETS TO DIFFUSE THE PRESSURE
  1. PEERS DON‘T EQUATE TO PALS WHEN YOU’RE THE FINAL DECISION-MAKER

TAKE INVENTORY to TAKE THE RIGHT STEPS

THE METHODOLOGY

First tested back in 1999, SURVIVAL of the FITTEST™ strategy is a groundbreaking, customizable approach and system of tools that considers, honors and caters to the experience and challenging (yet rewarding) lifestyle of a business leader. Now a trademarked16-year proven turnkey solution, it is based on  respected science, diligent research and demographic-specific observational experience that hone in on how the same stress that drives you to become a high achiever, leader and influencer is the very same that will bring you to your knees— and affect those around you.

Yup, I’ve done my homework.  But as a research junkie and thought leader, I’m constantly integrating current wellness, social science, and marketing data and trends into my craft to stay ahead of the curve. And the MEANS with which I deliver my tools, guidance and in-the-trenches action is profoundly progressive -perhaps somewhat aggressive as well.  Understanding how men deal with positive and negative stress differently from women has armed me to create a process that nets measurable progress through objective feedback, empathetic listening, unshakable accountability & reinforcement, strategic guidance, and unconditional encouragement.

PARTING THOUGHTS

Years of coaching, consulting, interviewing, training and researching high-performance gentlemen have equipped me with the understanding of just how to motivate, educate and activate you like no one else.  But the secret to a successful coaching relationship isn’t so much what I bring to you… it’s what I pull out of you. I’m just the catalyst to firing up the fuel, strengths and attitude that you’ve already got… and always having your back. And that’s what a killer wingman does.

SURVIVAL of the FITTEST —IT TAKES A VILLAGE.
