Meet Our Founders Ali & Stacie

What We Do

We are certified life coaches from the most successful life coaching school in the world, The Life Coach School.

We have the tools that are helping people run wildly successful businesses, lose weight, heal relationships, stop addictions and make their dreams come true.

We have taken these proven and powerful mental health coaching tools and combined them with the best of sports psychology to create something entirely new.

Unlike most mindset training which focuses on the symptoms gymnasts deal with – balking, nerves, doubt and fear, we deal with them at the source.

We help gymnasts understand how their brains work and then how to rewire their negative thoughts and master their emotions so they can reach their gymnastics goals and dreams.

How we got here

We come from the world of gymnastics.

Ali Havel was an NCGA All-American gymnast and assistant collegiate coach. She has a Master’s degree in Human Performance. She currently coaches level 8-10 gymnasts in a gym as well as coaches gymnasts of all levels as a mindset coach.

Stacie Fletcher is also a former gymnast and club coach. She has spent many years deeply involved in the elite gymnastics world from the media side, including a trip to Rio to cover USA gymnastics in 2016.

We understand your world.

Why we do it

We have brought these tools based in cognitive behavioral principles to the world of gymnastics because we believe that these tools could change gymnastics from the inside out.

Instead of giving up on those gymnasts dealing with mental blocks and self doubt, we can teach them how to deal with their thoughts and emotions just like we teach them any other skill.

Instead of using the fear of conditioning, of being held back or of disappointing a coach or parent to motivate gymnasts when they are struggling, we can use proven psychology and cognitive-based behavioral tools.

Instead of creating robots who don’t know how to deal with emotions to help them overcome fear and doubt, we can teach kids to process and use their emotions in a healthy way.

We can help our gymnasts win AND live happy, healthy lives.

As we help each parent, each gymnast and each coach learn these tools, we believe we can help create a gymnastics culture based on creating happy healthy gymnasts who know how to win in and out of the gym.
