Blog focuses on five key aspects of athletic performance aimed to help youth
Dallas, TX: Kyle Collinsworth of the Dallas Mavericks announced today that he is launching a new website and blog: Athlete’s Guide 5 (www.athletesguide5.com), a site aimed at helping youth improve their athletic performance through a mental approach, nutrition, strength and conditioning, recovery, and rehabilitation. Collinsworth has already posted interviews with several professional athletes in various sports, and has worked with his wife—All-American runner Shea Martinez-Collinsworth—to provide information that has helped them elevate their own athletic performance.
Kyle says that the site was created because “There are so many things I wish I knew as a kid that I know now. I want all young athletes to know all the little things that can help them improve as an athlete. I want to put the info out there that I have learned and allow people to read and learn, and also put what they have learned and what has worked for them as well. I want a place where people can gather on the internet and learn how to become their own CEO of their body and career.” When asked what advice he had for young athletes seeking to one day play professionally he responded “Decide today you want to be one. When you make that decision your whole life starts to change. You get to bed earlier you eat better, you stay after practice and work on your game. If you want to do something you have to decide today. Deciding today allows you to put mass amounts of action towards your goal. The sooner you start the more action you will have towards that goal. Set that goal and let it command your every thought and believe you can achieve it.”
