Anxiety, Stress, & Depression

Apr 19/ 2018/

Athletes are often perceived as confident, healthy, outgoing, and positive but that’s not always the case. Stress, anxiety, and depression are very powerful words and we are hearing them more and more inside and outside of sport.
Anxiety is very real and if you are not armed with the tools to cope and deal with anxiety it can become debilitating or worse it can develop into depression.

Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses world wide and some research suggests that symptoms of anxiety and depression may be higher among athletes than in the general public for a number of reasons.

I say to all of my athletes and coaches the first step in fixing a problem is to accurately define the problem and in today’s episode we are going to do just that as we are joined by registered psychologist, Kristy Gialet.
This week, we ask the questions “What is Anxiety?” “What causes Anxiety?” “What are the signs & symptoms?” “What can we do to head it off at the pass?”

We also take a look into depression, suicide, and dealing with traumatic events.
I share with you some sage advice from one of my mentors and great friends the late and great Harvey Dorfman one of the pioneers of sport psychology.
We have all had our challenges and hardships. Know you are not alone and there are great people out there just waiting to lend a hand.

Which Team Is The Best In Sport?

Apr 19/ 2018/

** In Dedication to the entire community of Humboldt, Saskatchewan and the families and friends of the Humboldt Broncos Junior Hockey Organization, who tragically lost 14 young players and team members in a terrible accident on April 6th.

Our Thoughts and Hearts are with you all. **

This week on Krush Performance, we ask the question, “If you are looking to watch and learn from the best in sport, which team would you watch?” The Houston Astros, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Penguins, Golden State Warriors, or is there another organization you would consider? Also, we discuss what can we learn from these top performing teams and organizations.

Then, we visit with one of the most successful independently owned & operated sporting goods stores in North America. If you want to learn from a top organization you need to take a good look at a 4th generation store celebrating their 90th birthday. What can we learn from United Sport & Cycle out of Edmonton, Canada, a lot and what does the future of sport look like…we’ll find out.

And finally we get to our text & twitter question of the week, “If you were going to add a sport to the Olympics, what would it be?” Krusher shares his top four new sport ideas for the Olympics and we hear from our listeners. There are some seriously great ideas the IOC should consider.

Join Jeff as he interviews Dr Yoni Freedhoff; The Diet Fix: Why Diets Fail and How to Make Yours Work

Oct 29/ 2014/

Collectively we have cut fat consumption by a third since the mid 70’s, the number of workout centers have tripled in the last 10yrs – yet obesity and overweight has doubled and tripled in the mean time and the number of new fad diets is out of control: low carb – no carb – high protein – no protein -no fat -beach -paelo – vegan…..

The deal is diets don’t work! In fact stats have shown that 90% of all diets fail yet right now the diet industry takes in about $60 Billion per year in North America alone!
Make no mistake the Big Food industry is in it to make money – fast food, junk food, the supplement industry. It’s crazy to think the stress on the health care dollar is reaching a breaking point.
In fact health issues due to overweight and obesity have taken over from smoking as the number 1 preventable cause of death…SCARY.

We ask the question which is more effective for modifying weight – diet or exercise?
Answer: Of your modifiable weight it’s 80% Diet, 20% Exercise

If you are an athlete, parent, coach or someone conscious about the food you and your family eat, I strongly suggest you follow Dr. Freedhoff’s blog WeightyMatters.ca
One of my favourite posts of his – Juice is not a *#@> fruit!

Join us to listen to Yoni Freedhoff, he is not afraid to call a spade a spade. and that is why we like him!
