Mike Margolies, an Eastside consultant (and member of Eastside Entrepreneurs) who has used his expertise in psychology to help more than 2,000 amateur and professional athletes achieve their competitive goals, has joined Toginet Radio as the host of “The Athlete Within You.”
The program, which can be heard live every Monday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Pacific Time at http://toginet.com/shows/theathletewithinyou, or via podcast from online archives, focuses on both the mental and physical aspects that help people excel in both business and sports. It features interviews and discussions with people Margolies has worked with, such as athletes, coaches, nutritionists and others who share his philosophy about the importance of understanding and mentally preparing for competition, as well as the health-related aspects that can affect one’s success in life.
Margolies, who has a master’s degree in sport psychology / sport science and is a former athlete himself, teaches individuals in all professions how to live up to their potential through one-on-one consulting, group training sessions and sports camps that focus on mental preparedness, nutrition, stress management, confidence-building and more. He is the founder of Sport Psychology Consultants and has used his knowledge not only to guide athletes to world championships and to compete in the Super Bowl, but also to help Fortune 500 companies build great sales and project teams using his winning strategies. He also has taught at five universities and conducted research at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.
He is currently working with Rat City Rollergirls, Seattle’s premiere all-female, flat-track roller derby league, and he is helping families of promising young athletes find the right coaching and training their children need to succeed in school and on the playing field.
