Hi, I am Caleb Burzan, I study mindfulness and stress.
But that’s not all I do, I am also a US Coast Guard Veteran, a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists (NSCA-CSCS), CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, USA Weightlifting Sports Performance L1 Coach, and an Ordained Minister. Aside from coaching, my research background is in psychology. I believe in a complete, full-body training approach from the inside out.
What is inside out training? To me, training from the inside out means placing just as much emphasis on the mental aspects of your game as the physical.
Too many athletes focus all of their training energy on physical skills preparation.
We train for speed, power, endurance, strength, explosiveness, and the list goes on and on. These skills are essential to high performance in any sport.
However, where these programs often fall short is training for mental preparation.
How many athletes have nailed their training programs pre-event, every aspect is dialed into perfection. The skill development is on par, your numbers are the best yet, diet is on point, you look and feel like your on top of your game. Which physically you might be.
Until the event day. You miss your first lift. You throw an interception on the opening drive, you get a false start, you boogie the first hole. And then all of a sudden your left wondering how that happened. That was part of the training.
Panic strikes and you start with a severe disadvantage. This panic takes a major toll on performance as you start focusing your thoughts on external concerns outside of your main event target.
No matter how much discipline goes into pre-event training and preparation, none of that matters once our plan goes out the window.
“Everyone has a plan ’till they get punched in the mouth.” – Mike Tyson
Your training fell short in the mental aspects of your game. Almost all training methods focus little, if anything, on training your emotional development, stress control, and relaxation techniques.
The athlete that can maintain composure and concentrate on the task at hand, wins 99 out of 100.
This is where I come in. Through proven sports psychology methodology, I can help you, take your game to the next level.

I have never met anyone that cannot benefit from the topics covered on this site.
