What Really Matters in Sport with Performance Coach Brandi Smith

On today’s episode of the PerformHappy Podcast, I have the pleasure of interviewing Brandi Smith, the founder of Perfect 10.0 Physical Therapy and Performance Training. Perfect 10.0 is an all-inclusive program dedicated to injury care and sport-specific strength, conditioning, and performance. It’s designed to not only return athletes to their sport but also enhance their overall performance.

Brandi brings a wealth of experience as a former collegiate gymnast, high school cheerleader, and dancer. Her holistic approach to treating and training athletes in gymnastics, cheerleading, dance, figure skating, free running, parkour, yoga, circus arts, and more is truly unique.

In this episode, we dive into the importance of finding your why. Why do you train? Why do you compete? Understanding your purpose in sport is crucial, and Brandi emphasizes the significance of having a supportive coaching environment. This supportive atmosphere helps athletes leave their sport with what truly matters—spoiler alert, it’s not the medals. 

Tune in to discover how to find deeper meaning in your sport journey and ensure that you gain lifelong benefits from your athletic endeavors.
