The Elysium Aesthetic

Motivation Muscle
Elysian Fields (Ann Mackowski)

When an Olympic Spirit is supported by an Olympic coach … the results are profound.

An Olympic coach knows the areas we can improve and the buttons to push to bring out our best.

We unlock new access to our potential. We get pushed further.

Day by day. Practice by practice. Forging a set-up to succeed.

Turning each challenge into future opportunity, into direction for our Olympic Spirit.

When an actor’s Olympic Spirit is supported by the drive and direction of an Olympic coach … the results are profound.

Every day, every rehearsal, every class, every everything begins to reveal:

🔥 pockets of next-level potential,

🔥 the deep belief that “I Can Do Anything!”

🔥 … and the internal drive, the fiery roar, to get there.

This week we’re welcoming the next member of our Olympic Dream Team Training Staff … The Motivation Muscle.

New to the work? These free chapters of our overview are where we recommend you start: Kindred Spirits, What Is Good Acting?, Growing Excellence, The Muscles of Preparation.
