The FIT4Success Athlete Development System
The FIT4Success Athlete Development System is a specialized training, development, mentoring, and coaching program for middle and high school aged athletes.
Do you have a talented middle or high school athlete who, despite hours of practice, falls short of their potential during competitions or games? I specialize in optimizing young athletes' potential and game play so that they truly shine when it matters most.
The FIT4Success System
“A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.” —Larry Bird.
“For me, winning isn’t something that happens suddenly on the field when the whistle blows and the crowds roar. Winning is something that builds physically and mentally every day that you train and every night that you dream.” —Emmitt Smith.
“Competing at the highest level is not about winning. It’s about preparation, courage, understanding and nurturing your people, and heart. Winning is the result.” —Joe Torre.
Why I Created the FIT4Success Athlete Development System?
I grew up playing sports. In high school, I was a two sport varsity athlete; baseball and football. For my first 2 years of college, I also played both sports. My last two years, I focused on one sport and became a two year starter for the football team.
Legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden said “success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to become the best of which you were capable.” Despite the success I had as a high school and NCAA DIII athlete, I never optimized my full potential. I do not have that self-satisfaction.
Everyone knows that in order to succeed as an athlete, you need to develop and train your body. What I didn’t know was how important and how much your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs impact your success as an athlete. I have discovered that there are 4 Interconnected Keys to Peak Performance. They are:
1. Physical FITness
2. Mental FITness
3. Emotional FITness
4. Spiritual FITness
100% of training is focused on Key #1
80-90% of mistakes are caused by Key’s #2 & 3
0% of training for most young athletes addresses 80-90% of the problem!

JUSTIN & TERA
I consider my family blessed to have had the privilege of Jim Brown working with my teen athletes. He is a man who loves His Jesus and demonstrates His Christian beliefs in his life. He is patient, kind and deeply passionate to help these athletes reach their full potential. Jim Brown's fresh perspective on "the game" is far more than just for athletic gain, instead he is teaching core values that will ignite these teens futures in such a positive way. I believe strongly that every teen could benefit from his teaching methods. I am beyond thankful for the gifts he has given my kids making them stronger communicators, calmer athletes, and dedicated visionaries for reaching their goals.
Jim Brown has helped me not only begin to tackle multiple problems in my life, but also overcome them. I have learned how to stay focused in the midst of adversity, how to encourage others even when life is not going my way, how to have confidence in degrading situations, and how to rely on God through it all.
