"I was a half-pipe snowboarder who competed for almost ten years. I used to suffer from competition anxiety at every contest. I found that SportExcel gave me practical techniques which are easy to apply to competing and life situations. With extreme sport comes high risk and SportExcel also helped me prepare for performing new tricks and riding at an elevated level, including higher amplitude."

"When we look at how nicely Bob Palmer's peak performance strategies meshed with our OSP System, where nothing was opposed in terms of our teaching style, our relationships with our students, our commitment for lifelong learning and our commitment to building the whole person, our own system has never been stronger and the future never brighter. "
The SportExcel System is strategy-based and designed to allow you to start transforming your game in the first session. The starting point is the Zone, a moment of brilliance that you have been in before, at least once. We teach you the tools to take your moment of brilliance to your whole game. There is no analysis or assessment of you, only an analysis of your Zone.
On any given day we can be working via Skype with a triathlete in Australia, a sailor in California, an Ironman competitor in Hawaii, a trap shooting team in Minnesota and a snowboarder in New Zealand. We offer premium one-on-one training via Skype, parent/young athlete Skype training and in-person high performance group clinics at your location for teams and businesses.
Yes we do. In fact, many of our clients are decision-makers in their business and in life, whether as a company CEO, a sport leader, a business owner or the parent of an athlete. The SportExcel high performance system empowers you in every sphere of your life, especially in leadership.
Let Peter Baeklund put it in his words:
We usually let our clients define the Zone, especially as they learn to experience it in the first session. They tell us that it is one or a combination of:
Being wired but calm, having no thoughts, watching themselves perform, being in slow motion, knowing exactly what their opponent is going to do next, etc.
As our client, Mike Westjohn says:
"The Zone is a teachable, learnable skill and it’s all connected to how willing you are to seeing, feeling and trusting yourself to achieving your goals."
— MIKE WESTJOHN, USA
No. The results of assessments are merely talking points. They respresent a moment in time when you were out of the Zone. And, since you get in the Zone in the very first session with us, and then learn to stay in it with powerful tools, any assessment is immediately out-of-date and obsolete. You will learn a system where you demonstrate what you can do well in the future, without talking about what you did poorly in the past.
This empowering approach is one of the most important systems you will ever develop. You'll become the expert in managing your Zone and sport.
We offer a guarantee because we can. We base our guarantee on the routine success of our athletes. As well, our system is not psychology; it is a leadership systems approach that is repeatable, consistent and fun.
If, after the first two sessions, you are unhappy with your performance or with what you are learning, we will do what it takes to ensure you are satisfied or you get your money back.
As well, you can take the first session of the Ignition Series as a no-obligation session to experience the Zone. We know that once you do, you'll never go back to any other approach.
A decade or so ago, I taught my high-performance system to Maureen Vandermey for the purpose of her running hobby.
Maureen dropped me a note recently telling me about her experience of running the Toronto Marathon. So we sat down together over Skype to discuss the race, her perseverance as a beginner and the strategies that helped her, such as mental drafting, staying in the Zone and applying mental gymnastics to “flatten out hills.” Her commentary can teach beginners and pros some good lessons in resiliency, no matter what your sport.LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
