Mental Power and the Full-Spectrum Approach

Self-confidence is the basis for sustainable performance

The Full Spectrum Approach utilizes mental power as an equal part with performance and fuel. Why? Because endurance training is not only challenging for the body, but for our mind all the same. Have a race coming up and race jitters? Let’s work on that. Have difficulty sleeping at night so your body can’t get the rest it needs? Let’s work on that. Is work stressful and you can’t seem to shut off your mind or stop checking emails? Yes, we work on that too. We want you to feel confident not only when you are completing your workout, but in all those hours in between the workouts too. Only when you feel confident and calm there, do you give your body the necessary tools to adapt properly.

Hours and hours of training means that if you have a job, a family, and friends, you don’t have a lot of time left in a day, especially if you want to get the proper time to get your nutrition and sleep in. Some weeks it’s easier, but let’s be honest, that’s not always the case. Things can get overwhelming quickly. This is where we help you strategize and implement how to effectively move through these bottlenecks.

And, if you’re human – I’m guessing you are, if you’re reading this – chances are that when it gets tricky and challenging in life, during a tough workout or at a tough spot in a race, you’ll have at least one message floating around in your head telling you something along the lines of “I can’t do this.” You can read a little bit more about these messages here. The Full Spectrum Approach takes these messages into account and helps you work through them, so you can shift to feeling confident in sticky situations, which in turn means that not only will you be able tackle your workouts, but anything that comes your way in between workouts.
At FS Endurance, we support you day in and day out, because we understand that endurance training is more than just workouts, it’s a way of life.
