Working as athletic and mental coach of alpine ski racing athletes
Some may know, besides my own freeskiing I work as a self-employed athletic and mental coach of alpine ski racers. This matches just perfect with my own freeskiing in winter as most of this work is mainly concentrated in the pre-season period between May and November.
The first athlete I started working with is Anna Fenninger, who now finally established to be one of Austrian's top alpine ski racing athletes and World Champion 2011. We started to work together already 9 years ago when I was studying sports- & coaching science in Salzburg. Since then we are just a perfect team and I really enjoy to work with her. Within the past 2 years we didn't only concentrate on her individual athletic performance and also integrated working on her mental skills in our training programms. Anna herself says that this was a huge step in increasing her performance in the FIS World Cup races.
Additionally to Anna Fenninger I'm the personal athletic coach of Nici Schmidhofer and Mariella Voglreiter, two athletes of the Austrian Ski Federation and I'm working with athletes of the Skihotelfachschule Bad Hofgastein.
