The Elite Business Athlete ® program, will un-tap your true potential and take you to the next level while improving both your professional and personal life.

The Characteristics of an ‘Elite Business Athlete’ ®

The characteristics of an Elite Business Athlete ® cut across all performance areas. These areas encompass attitude, motivation, preparation, concentration, coachability, leadership, teamwork, and the ability to relax under pressure. Excelling at these areas requires a heightened level of self awareness, control of effort, visualization, and both cognitive and reasoning skills.

These are skills that all Elite Business Athletes ® have at their disposal. The individual performing at peak levels has mastered all performance areas and is knowledgeable in applying them in multiple situations and even creatively adapting them in new environments.

Here at SY Performance Academy (SYPA) our Elite Business Athlete ® performance coaching focuses upon developing the power of the mind by practicing mental skills training through utilizing class work, challenging personal fitness workouts, and proper diet and nutrition. This type of guidance will allow individuals, teams, and groups to build and reinforce the skills they need to achieve their goals and aims.

Our coaching techniques are backed by the psychology of performance which have been researched and scientifically proven over decades by leading sports & performance psychologists. Our proprietary technique of blending challenging fitness workouts, powerful energizing nutrition, along with mental skills training is a perfect foundation for high level performers in corporate business, medical and legal professions, small business owners, and entrepreneurs. We have also seen a high level of success working with performing arts professionals in the areas of dance, music, entertainment, and both film and stage.

Training Techniques and Mental Skills

At SYPA we focus on teaching practical skills to enable professionals to develop their mental abilities to the same extent that their physical abilities progress. Mental skills training focuses upon core skills such as concentration, anxiety control, goal setting, motivation, relaxation techniques, imagery, and self-confidence. In addition, a professional’s ability to perform consistently is often determined by the consistency of their emotions. When they learn to respond positively to professional and personal challenges that they are presented with, their performance in training and in a competitive workplace environment will be affected by their emotional reactions to those challenges. Therefore if they can master their emotions, they will have the power to use those emotions as a tool to facilitate successful individual and team performance.

Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be. If we do our best, we are a success. – Zig Ziglar

Goal Setting

Here at SYPA we have found that professionals are highly motivated by clear goals and appropriate feedback. Working toward a goal provided a major source of motivation to actually reach the goal – which, in turn, improved the level of performance. Studies have found that there is a distinct relationship between how difficult and specific a goal is and people’s performance of that task. The more specific and difficult goals led to better task performance than vague or easily attainable goals.

At our quarterly (Four classes per year) full day class we take time to conduct a goal setting session that helps our clients to identify and set projected goals for the week, month, quarter, six month mark, and the year. We teach our clients the power of prioritizing, committing, and accomplishing a successful goal driven life.

  • Clarity
  • Challenge
  • Commitment
  • Feedback
  • Task Complexity

While we believe that setting goals is crucial to success, we at SYPA prefer to have our clients set performance goals rather than outcome goals so that it is easier to control and obtain. Outcome goals may not be under a client’s control if completion of that goal depends on other people’s actions.

“Set your mind on a definite goal and observe how quickly the world stands aside to let you pass.” – Napoleon Hill

 “You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don’t think about who you have been. Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully. ” – Anthony Robbins

Ruffo Espinosa – President of Litigation Advantage

We all want to look great and feel healthy but I never really took into consideration the other benefits from joining the SYP Academy would provide me. My motivation, my overall energy, and my self confidence have definitely improved farther than I thought possible. Deciding to join the SY Performance Academy, and personally training with Scott Yonehiro, was the greatest investment without a doubt. At age 49 I’m not only in the best shape of my life but I’ve also noticed incredible positive changes in both my personal and professional lives. It’s a fact that when you look and feel great you also project confidence to others that not only can you take good care of yourself…you can take care of business too.

Roselyn Martinez – Creator of Picking Up the Pieces Curriculum & Founder of Women Inspiring Hope

Although I have personally known Scott for several years, he has been my personal trainer and performance coach for only the last few years. Truth be told, I wasn’t consistent with using his services in the past because of my own creative use of excuses. I finally got so sick & tired of my unfit body, my low energy levels, and my lack of inspiration, that I finally listened to what Scott was saying to me all along during our workouts….and that was to live up to my greatness. Not only does Scott kick your butt physically, but he brings out your passion, he challenges you in going beyond any self-imposed limitations, he holds you accountable for both your personal and professional goals and helps build YOU along with your business in mind. I am extremely thankful for Scott’s physical personal training & business performance coaching because it has resulted in finally releasing my upcoming book “Reclaim Your Power”.
