Why the Name Athlete Growth?
The term Athlete refers to an individual who possesses physical skill, agility, speed, quickness, endurance, stamina, power and strength. In addition, an athlete is an individual who has discipline, muscular development, and is a person who takes action.
The term Growth refers to the process of maturity and development. Growth occurs when individuals learn lessons through life and gain experience from winning and losing. At AG, we believe that Growth is a never ending process. We should always be striving to educate ourselves, develop our purpose, seek our vision and accomplish our goals.
Since 2010, Athlete Growth has helped individuals take both their athletic and growth potential and make one explosive combination. Truthfully, everyone can benefit from the programs and services we have to offer. In some way or another YOU ARE AN ATHLETE AND YOU CAN ALWAYS GROW!
Dorron's Journey began in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1982. When he was three years old his family decided to leave South Africa for a better life in America. Dorron grew up in Texas and Florida. Dorron spent many hours in the pool competing as a youth swimmer. He was not your typical youth athlete. He was overweight and was often picked on in school. It was on one day in particular where his life was changed forever...
On that day, Dorron arrived home from school crying because he was beat up by bullies. As a result, he begged his mom to go purchase him a weight set at Sam's Club. Many kids chose to play games after school, but not Dorron. He spent every afternoon lifting weights and building his confidence. This led him to become a better all around athlete in many sports. In particular, he excelled in the game of football...
As a football player in high school, Dorron made the All-County team, the Broward All-Star team, and received a scholarship for strong character on and off the field. After high-school he went on to play football for Florida Atlantic University (FAU) on the first inaugural team. After two years in collegiate sports, Dorron decided to focus his studies in Exercise Science and Health Promotion at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and compete in triathlons and obstacle course races...
While attended school, Dorron became a certified Personal Training Specialist by the Fitness Institute International. He went on to win many sprint and Olympic distance triathlon races in the Clydesdale Division. His last competition was in 2008 where he was crowned the 2008 Ultimate Athlete Champion. Along the way Dorron has been on a journey towards making himself better. He has experienced temporary defeat in many ways...
After losing everything, literally everything in 2008, Dorron found himself questioning his purpose. He looked himself in the mirror and said, "its time to make things happen," and as a result Athlete Growth was born in 2010. Since 2010, Dorron has received certifications as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA - National Strength and Conditioning Association), Performance Edge Coach, Life Success Consultant...
Level 1 and Level 2 Training for Warrior's Coach, and recently received his Master's Degree in Sport & Performance Psychology. Dorron has self published two books: Performance Playbook and Feed Your Potential! He has a burning desire to become the best he can be and is now focused on taking his 10 plus years of experience in the industry and feeding it into The Performance Playbook™. Dorron is ready to empower you to grow the athlete within!
Let's go to work together!
Meet the Founder
Dorron Blumberg M.A., NSCA-CSCS
The Performance Playbook™ is a dedicated system for meeting your performance goals. It is a unique system created by Dorron Blumberg and his life experience throughout his years of life and performance work. This system will inspire, coach, and guide you to eliminate negative habits and build upon successful strategies to get you from point A to point B.
If you continually fail to get results in your workouts, struggle with performance in sports, or you are looking to complete your first race/ enhance your skills in fitness and sports, then this 90 program known as The Performance Playbook™ is perfect for you! It encompasses 10 key steps for building your foundation for success in the game of performance. Each step builds on one another to propel you forward and empower you to grow the athlete within!
Step # 1: Throw Out the Trash!
The first step in this program is to get rid of the trash. We all have trash in our life that we can all get rid of in some capacity and throw out for good. Examples are past negative relationships, poor eating habits, negative attitude, etc. It is important to throw out negative parts of life on a regular basis and always check yourself in order to move onto getting yourself into the game!
Step # 2: Get in the Game!
When it comes to getting in the game, it is essential to assess your mental, physical, and nutrition game. You need to make sure you understand your weaknesses and continue to build on your strengths. This step will involve creating your purpose for the next 90 days and inspiring you to dig deep and build your foundation strong! In this step, Athlete Growth wants to know, What Do You Stand For? When you have purpose, you have direction!
Step # 3: Create Your Journey and Vision!
The third step in this program encourages you to think about your journey thus far in life and gets you to write about it. This is a great step for getting you to perceive how you view yourself. Having a vision in place will inspire you to focus on your future performance and keep your eye on the prize!
Step # 4: Set Your Goals
The fourth step in this program is to set your goals for the next 90 days. AG will teach you the difference between outcome and process goals and how to develop a championship mindset for creating goals that are specific, measurable, and motivational.
Step # 5: Implement Visualization and Mind Training Tools
The fifth step in the program focuses on visualization and mind training tools. Visualization is a crucial step in this program because it allows you to clear your mind and grasp hold of your mission on a continual basis. When you visualize to energize, anything is possible!
Step # 6: Develop Championship Attitude & Habits
The Performance Playbook™ involves the power of attitude and how it affects your habits in life! AG focuses on three main aspects of your game: The Mind Game (Mind, emotions, & spirit), The Nutrition Game (performance fuel, performance supplements, & general health) and the Physical Game (fitness, sport specific training, conditioning, & recovery). This part of the program will guide you to shake things up and move forward smartly! Remember this:
Attitude is the # 1 Cause of the Results you get in life!
Step # 7: Be Smart With Your Emotions
Emotions play an integral part of our performance. Being smart with your emotions is about being intelligent and continually reminding yourself that you are in the game to win! It is important to understand how to deal with your own emotions and the emotions of others as your journey through The Performance Playbook™.
Step # 8: Enhance Your Mental Toughness
Are you mentally tough? Mental toughness deals with developing balance in within your mind and body. This part of the system entails the six intellectual mind muscles. It reminds you to focus on the little details in life and push forward in the face of fear! Be the champion you are meant to be!
Step # 9: Lead Yourself & Improve Communication
The ninth step within The Performance Playbook™ works to build your leadership skills. Being a leader encourages positive habits, personal development, and an endless desire to be better. Leadership takes having an open mind and compassion for others. The Performance Playbook™ teaches you how to communicate effectively and lead yourself before leading others in life!
Step # 10: Grow The Athlete Within
The last step is the best step because it reminds you that the concepts and ideas learned throughout The Performance Playbook™ are never ending. Growth is an ongoing process towards going through the steps again. Never stop growing in life and always seek to get in the game and stay in it each and every year.
