Dark Horse Elite Athletics is an all-inclusive sports performance business founded by Coach Johnson. The purpose of DHEA is to provide high-quality service to athletes who are determined to make it to the next level regardless of their financial situations.
We use 7 pillars to help enhance the lives of our athletes.
These 7 pillars help athletes gain a competitive edge and guarantee results. Listed below is an in-depth description of how each pillar is important and how it can help you as an athlete.
Physical Preparation- Each athlete has different needs based on their sport, past training experience, age, injuries, medical conditions, etc. DHEA provides customized programs to make sure every aspect of your physical training is tailored to surpassing your specific goals.
Psychological- Having the right mindset and psychological approach to sport is one of the most important pieces of training. DHEA helps build confidence in our athletes so once a challenge arises they are mentally prepared to conquer all obstacles on or off the field.
Nutrition- Athletes need proper nutrition to help them gain lean muscle mass, provide fuel for practice and competitions, and proper hormone balance. Food is fuel and DHEA makes it easy to implement proper eating habits.
Holistic Health- Food and the skincare products you use on a daily basis matter! Your body has to process everything it comes into contact with using the liver. If these items you ingest and put on your skin have toxins in them, it can cause a lot of issues. The main issues are cancer-causing agents, hormonal changes, and allergies. With guidance from DHEA, we can help alleviate these problems and enhance overall health.
Recovery- Recovery is more than just taking a day off. Recharging using sleep, supplementation, water consumption, and nutrition will make sure athletes stay healthy. Most importantly it will help you be ready for the next session or competition without feeling sore or lethargic. DHEA uses several methods to make sure recovery is done properly for optimal results.
Mentorship- Coach Johnson the founder of DHEA was a former athlete. He uses his experiences through sports to effectively mentor and guide athletes in the right direction. By joining DHEA you become a part of a family. Our founder and coaches lead by example and are upstanding role models for our athletes.
Education- DHEA knows how important education is in the classroom and on the field. We help make sure our athletes are taking care of their grades so it doesn’t get in the way of their success. We also take pride in our own education, every coach is hand-picked based on their experience, as well as their educational background in sports performance.
