Evolving with the High Jump


Optimal Zone:  Set the Bar High

It was once believed that it was humanly impossible for anyone to run the mile under 4 minutes. However, on May 6, 1954, Roger Bannister would be the first man to prove that the impossible was indeed possible. Today, running under 4 minutes in the mile by a world-class male athlete is anything but impossible.

Sometimes, the real limiting factor of any athlete, individual, team or organization is the boundaries by which they define as possible and impossible.  Whether in sports, business or life, the quest for excellence is a shared phenomenon. For over 15 years I have specialized in high performance as an Olympian and world-class athlete, researcher, scholar, and consultant.  In 2004, I founded Optimal Zone Inc., a boutique high performance consulting firm that helps athlete, individuals and businesses realize their potential through a unique comprehensive approach.  Our work is based on science, research, and experience. We KNOW high performance. Let me help you discover your optimal zone for high performance.
