The quest for athletic excellence has been Choeleen Loundagin's passion throughout her life. A sport psychologist formally introduced her to the power of the mind-body connection and the benefits of mental skills when she was a teenage competitive figure skater struggling with performance anxiety. His wisdom and the results it effected in her life inspired Choeleen to choose a career in the field of Sport Psychology. Now a respected Performance Enhancement Consultant, Choeleen has helped athletes throughout the world bring more enjoyment to their sport experience and achieve their personal best. She consults with parents, coaches, and athletes in a wide variety of sports, at all levels of expertise. She also consults with performers and professionals with a desire to maximize their potential, manage stress, and enhance their experiences.
Choeleen started InnerChamp Consulting in 1992, after earning her Master Degree in Sport Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. The Inner Champion: A Mental Toughness Training Manual for Figure Skaters was published by InnerChamp Books in 1997, with an updated, second edition published in 2004. Sport and Soul: Skate for the Love audio CD, a one-of-a-kind, highly effective performance enhancement tool, was co-produced with Tom Mitchell, Ph.D. in 2000.
