High Performance Zen and Work with Wendy

Helping Athletes and Their Parents Achieve Wellness for Life

What is High Performance Zen?

These are the tenets of deep health that are available to you when you understand and apply the fundamentals of physical, mental, and social wellbeing that are enhanced with solid sleep, and mindfulness practices that enhance your self awareness and help you to clarify your own personal philosophy and purpose for your life.

Trade Disconnection
for Deep Health

Have you ever felt like you’re trying to balance a thousand plates on your head while walking down a flight of stairs? As if, at any moment, your footing will slip and everything will come crashing down?

I’ve been there too: battling perfectionism and overwhelm, chasing worthiness through my (and my children’s) sports performance, and generally feeling like my mental health has been hijacked by my overactive nervous system.

This is called living from the outside-in (instead of the inside-out), and it is NOT the recipe for healthy relationships or a fulfilled, whole life.

But I’m here to tell you: it doesn’t have to be this way!

Coaching for all Dimensions of 
Athletic Wellness

My 8-week High Performance Zen Course focuses on more than just performance enhancement in athletics. Instead, we start with the cornerstones of deep health and work our way up from there, equipping athletes and parents alike with the life skills they need to know themselves and connect with others.

Are You Ready to Invest in Total Health & Wellness?

As an athlete (and parent to athletes) myself, I know it can feel counterintuitive to invest in yourself in a way that does not directly target athletic performance. But the more I’ve learned about cultivating lifelong joy in sports (no matter what level), the more convinced I become that mental, emotional and social health is just as important.

I want you to experience for yourself what it’s like to experience more flow state in your life, on and off the court. I want you to be able to perform at a high level and understand the pillars of deep health that cultivate connection, create leaders, and avoid anxiety & burnout. The question is: what do you want for you?

Avoid the Regret of Falling Short of Your Full Potential

• When you haven’t yet learned intimate self-awareness…

• When you don’t know how to calm your nervous system and optimize your neurochemistry…

• When your life is not characterized by calm and genuine connection…

…then there’s no way you can reach your full potential, on or off the court.
Avoid burnout, broken relationships, and the regret that comes from not optimizing your talents by learning the secrets of High Performance Zen.

Meet Wendy Jones

Wendy Jones is a mother of four, writer, coach, and founder of Be Better with Wendy Jones. She has a passion for healing generational trauma and teaching the next generation to turn their struggles into strengths.

Wendy believes that our own self awareness is the greatest gift we can give to the next generation. To cultivate that awareness, we must develop an understanding of how to regulate our nervous systems and connect our mind, body, and spirit.

She teaches tools for this in her High Performance Zen course, her Reiki practice, her book 365 Days of Optimism, and The Optimists Journal Blog, helping athletes and their families to cultivate calm and connection, and, ultimately, reach their greatest potential on and off the court.

“Wendy is tuned in to the frequency we all need to be on.”
Parker K.
Graduated Division 1 Athlete
“Wendy is the real deal. She writes and supports people from the heart. Her story is absolutely incredible, and as a mother and business owner myself, I appreciate her ability to share authentically from her lived experience in the cauldron of generational consciousness to help shed light on what works, what motivates, and what can help us to heal and become whole.”
Emily HIghtower
Human Resilience Specialist
Connection - when it happens between two people it is magical and meaningful. With Wendy it’s also natural and easy. Wendy easily spanned generations and achieved that connection with me and my 17 year old daughter, guiding and encouraging us through the NCAA D-1 recruiting process for beach volleyball. Ever present, always positive with a kind word from the heart and expertise from her life’s work. Working with Wendy from the East Coast has been seamless. Can’t say enough good things.

What is “Wellness for Life”?

As athletes (and the parents of athletes), we are often hyper-focused on sports performance. But a sustainable journey that includes peak performance, healthy relationships, and the discovery of our true selves, happens when we shift our focus to our overall health and wellness. This is how we avoid anxiety and burnout and understand the intrinsic value of our gifts and talents and how to use them to connect with ourselves and the people around us. Join Wendy and our Be Better Member Community to align your mind, body & spirit and connect with likeminded people in a calm environment that supports you on your journey to transform potential into high performance.
