Who are Gerry Dragomir and Miri Malkin?
Gerry is Canada’s National Team Endurance Coach with a wealth of experience and knowledge in coaching top athletes. Miri is an online hypnotherapist and a mind coach in Vancouver, BC, working with athletes to help them achieve peak performance while overcoming their stress, anxiety, and performance issues by creating a winner mindset.
Miri and Gerry started the discussion at the beginning of the covid-19 outbreak in March 2020, maintaining the physical isolation measures we are all subjected to. These measures can have a tremendous effect on everyone as an individual, within a family, as an employee, business owner, or athlete. Miri and Gerry chose to talk about the challenges athletes experience, but it can be translated to other groups as well. We might feel that we are stuck, that there is nothing we can do. We can, however, choose to view the current situation as creators, rather than victims. We can discover the many opportunities we can create in times like these.
