Optimizing Your Lifestyle For Energy

It's relevant, meaningful and actionable.

Performance Lifestyle is the lifestyle approach to maximizing personal energy and work/life performance by understanding the science of optimal energy and creating an environment that promotes health and supports success. 

Optimize Your Lifestyle For Optimal Energy

First developed to support elite athletes in reaching their sporting goals by helping them get free of the distractions that were holding them back; John Allen Mollenhauer and a world class team of performance and lifestyle advisors have developed this lifestyle training system into a relevant, meaningful and actionable, simple-to-learn approach to living for those who may not be into sports or even health and fitness enthusiasts but need to hit their performance objectives day-after-day while staying out of the downward spiral that starts with low energy.

Relevant

PerformanceLifestyle® is a 21st-century approach to optimizing your energy for performance and work performance with an eye on your health and well-being as essential to that performance.

Telecommunication technologies have enabled not only 24 x 7 job expectations from employers, but also created 24 x 7 demands for products and services worldwide breaking down all the natural boundaries around which we have lived by for millennia.

This situation is global, and what we have on our hands is the challenge of our generation: how to keep ourselves healthy while intelligently performing amidst relentless demand, while achieving our goals at our best level and pace.

We are now entering the Third Wave of work performance in the United States.

  • First Wave: Early 20th century: Farming and foresters and manufacturing industries were prominent. The emphasis in organizations was on designing work so that the physical body could endure and produce as much as possible.
  • Second Wave: Late 20th century: Professional, technical and service work is prominent. A shift from concern for work being designed for human physical needs shifted to the need to consider social and psychological needs around the 1950’s.
  • Third Wave: Beginning of the 21st:  The global workforce is feeling the effects of work that is designed for the mind alone, but not the body which gets depleted.

Meaningful

We are just now beginning to understand the importance of designing our work around lifestyle’s that enable healthy minds and bodies; the benefits of which, are sustainable energy, dramatically improved health and fitness and higher levels of professional performance!

PerformanceLifestyle® helps you meet this challenge from the day you begin and supports you in your efforts to continuously improve the quality of your life and work throughout your life.

PerformanceLifestyle fits the rhythms of 21st-century living and working perfectly; it is a lifestyle that works for driven, goal and success-oriented people. Once you learn the Lifestyle mindset and the skill set you can better meet the challenges of every aspect of the performance demands you face in your life.

Actionable

The Story of Performance Lifestyle Founder John Allen Mollenhauer

Feeling like you have a fatigue syndrome.

If you are new to Performance Lifestyle, let me introduce myself. I’m John Allen Mollenhauer; my friends call me “JAM,” and I hope you will too.

Could you have fatigue syndrome

25 years ago, immersed in the world of athletics; I was a trainer, a gym chain owner and *an athlete*. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was living an early version of what is today called “Performance Lifestyle.”My pace of life, the way I ate, trained, slept, scheduled my week, focused; everything was oriented around my goals and making sure I was able to perform at the level I wanted and looked and felt the way I wanted too.   

I had the full support of what was a successful way of life.

Then in 1995, at the inception of the dot-com era, I became a tech entrepreneur. I was fully engaged and motivated, firing on all cylinders – or so I thought.

The world was full of new opportunity, but with the constantly changing focus of a rapidly evolving business, I began abandoning the way of life I once knew in my days in athletics. I soon began working nonstop eating whatever, whenever, exercising infrequently, and rest was an afterthought.

For ten long years, I charged hard into one of the biggest opportunities of my career; I was excited, but I had nothing left. It was like I had a fatigue syndrome with no idea of how to solve it. I thought it was me like something was wrong with me. 

And while there was definitely something wrong, there was nothing wrong with me. It was all due to how I was approaching life and my business… 

A decade of living overwhelmed, overstimulated, under recuperated, overfed and at times undernourished, super busy but almost too tired to be physically active; I was forced to pay the price, and my big opportunity collapsed under the weight of my energy-depleting lifestyle.

It was crushing in more ways than one, and in the autopsy of it all; I looked back as to why and how it all happened. I thought back to my former life in athletics, where I had the lifestyle to support my performance and wondered… what if I was to start thinking and living like an athlete again, only now in my life as an entrepreneur?   

You see, professional Athletes are pro’s at overcoming fatigue; it’s something they regularly face in their lives. As a result, they look, feel and perform in a way that people admire, and it’s the result of their energy enhancing lifestyle. So, I spent the next ten years learning the science (and continue to), developing and refining the principles, and practices that comprised a performance lifestyle strategy while working with hundreds of clients; all inspired by the following idea.

Elite athletes and other high-performers and achievers, in and out of sport, have the support they need to sustain their training and succeed—free of the hidden lifestyle challenges that distract and hold most other people back.

I took that to heart, and with the help of a world-class science advisory team, my team and I developed PerformanceLifestyle.com. I wanted, driven, goal and success-oriented people, who may not be into sports or even fitness enthusiasts, to get the lifestyle-based performance training they too need. Our lives are often more intense than it is for most athletes! 

It was only a matter of time before training that would begin treating the everyday achiever like an “athlete” would become relevant, meaningful and actionable and I wanted to spearhead it. Lifestyle support is numero uno when it comes to achieving your goals; even your most ambitious targets, without burnout and with your health and wellbeing intact.

You’ll get a more detailed version of that story in The Rise of a New Lifestyle ebook coming out when we launch thew site.

If you want to get beyond feeling like you have a fatigue syndrome and get your energy back, then just like I needed to, you must learn the science and the secrets of how to maintain optimal energy levels. And to become the balanced and healthy person you’re capable of it makes sense to have a lifestyle that performs.

I am amazed at the difference this training continues to make for my team and me and how much we learn every day guided by this never-before-assembled process for developing and optimizing the “master routine” of your life— your lifestyle.

The sheer fact that I “live this stuff,” no longer caught up with so much going on I’m barely hanging on has changed my whole approach to living. After years of learning and talking about it, now I now make life decisions based on it. It will happen this way for you too.

What this training has done for us, it has done for hundreds of others who are now on the path to taking control of their life, in a relevant, meaningful and actionable way for perhaps the first time in a long time.

Things can in fact change. They do so more than ever when you don’t attempt change indiscriminately, but do so in a methodical way. It’s why I’m so passionate about sharing my experience with others. Every stage of developing Performance Lifestyle has been as transformative to me as it has been to thousands of others.

This January and February take the first transformative steps towards optimizing the way you live so you too can look, feel and perform “like a pro,” as we like to say. 

Proactive is the name of the game, so stay tuned as we roll out the new Performance Lifestyle website in about a week, which will bring everything to life for you. We’re going to start with our first Essentials Training of the year— Regenerate Your Life Force.

If you want to get a jumpstart take this Free Training from Performance Lifestyle Advisor Ari Whitten called The Energy Blueprint.

We are very excited to promote The Energy Blueprint as it has helped us and many others dive deeper into the science behind overcoming fatigue, so you can harness and maintain optimal energy levels. It will seriously help you look, feel and perform like a pro, as you get into “the know,” and no longer live at the mercy of what you don’t understand. Energy is Everything.

You can more than double your personal power with insights from the training we have coming up.

Energy is EVERYTHING!

And you have access to unlimited levels of energy, if...

Energy is EVERYTHING, and you have access to an abundance of energy if you know the science and the secrets to maintaining optimal energy levels for performance. It’s the currency of life. You can learn more here.

The science of optimal energy is vitally important to better understanding The Secrets of Optimal Energy or what is known in Performance Lifestyle training as "Performance Living 101"

Want to know the difference between something that’s alive and something that isn’t? It’s that the thing that’s ALIVE has cells that are creating ENERGY and energy that’s also driving your cells. And yet, even though energy is the central key to having a good life filled with vitality, happiness, and passion, most of us feel like we DON’T HAVE IT!

People are tired. They’re sick. They’re stressed. They’re exhausted. They’re anxious and depressed. They’re emotionally flat. They’re bored and lacking passion. There’s no sex drive. They come home, and you don’t feel like being with their family, and they don’t have the drive to spend quality time with them. And they’re usually just trying to drag themselves through another day with caffeine.

Have you ever been to that place and are you there right now?

That is why so many people are hooked on caffeine—because they just don’t FEEL that energy. They’re always BORROWING energy from TOMORROW to pay for today, with caffeine and stimulants. And because of all this, people are becoming bankrupt in something that’s incredibly important to having a good life—energy and passion for life, even when there’s good reason to feel passionate.

Here are some scary stats to consider:

  • In WebMD’s annual Year in Health survey, women across the U.S. named fatigue among their top five health concerns.
  • In the American Psychological Association’s 2012 Stress in America survey, 45 PERCENT of women reported feeling chronically fatigued due to stress.
  • A survey commissioned by Legal & General found that 34 percent of the 5,000-people asked said that chronic low-level, general fatigue was their BIGGEST health concern.
  • The Chartered Management Institute recently conducted a ‘Quality of Working Life’ report which showed that insomnia is widespread and more than HALF of us experience feelings of constant tiredness at work. Simply put, chronic fatigue, daytime sleepiness, stress, anxiety, depression, exhaustion, and chronic lack of energy have become EPIDEMICS in our society!

That’s a BIG PROBLEM because high energy levels are the crux of having a good life! Your happiness, your career, your health, and your relationships depend on it!

So, that’s the bad news…

Here’s the GOOD NEWS…

You have massively abundant energy AVAILABLE to you. A level of vitality and energy not just 10% or 20% higher than what you have now, but MASSIVELY higher. You can access a level of energy that will fill you with drive, motivation, vitality, and passion every single day. And once you access that, you can transform the way you move through life.

What You Can Learn From the Best Quarterback Ever.

And you don't need to know squat about football.

This is an article by By Mark Van Deusen of Whoop—Enhancing your performance lifestyle. Automatically.

It’s a great article highlighting what arguably (and it’s not a tough argument) the greatest quarterback ever does to stay at the top of his game at 39 with the potential to play at that top until he’s 45!

It’s a great article highlighting what arguably (and it’s not a tough argument) the greatest quarterback ever does to stay at the top of his game at 39 with the potential to play at the level until he’s 45!
No one has ever played football better, for longer, than Tom Brady; and it should not surprise you that he’s not only a model citizen for living a performance lifestyle, it’s what he emphasizes that matters most.

You can learn from this, even if you’ve never even stepped on a football field and know nothing about the game.

What’s your game in life, business, maybe even a sport? That’s the questions. We are all athletes, and if you adopted this mindset and the lifestyle performance skills you’ll learn here, you would see yourself rise too. 

———————————————– 

Sixteen years ago, the New England Patriots finished in last place with a 5-11 record. The following season, a 24-year-old backup quarterback and former 6th-round draft pick helped guide the Patriots to their first Super Bowl title in franchise history (pictured below). After making his NFL starting debut on September 30, 2001, Tom Brady has never looked back.

Now 39 years old, Brady has the chance to bring a fifth championship trophy home to New England. No quarterback has ever won five Super Bowls before (Brady, Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw are each tied for the most with four). Brady already owns the record for Super Bowl appearances by a quarterback, with six.

Earlier this season, Brady passed Peyton Manning (200) and Brett Favre (199) for the most all-time victories by a QB, now at 205 and counting. His 14-2 Patriots just captured the AFC East division title for a record eighth straight year, but their streak is much more impressive than that. Since Brady first took over the starting job in 2001, New England has had the best record in the division every season (tiebreakers kept the Patriots from being awarded division championships in 2002 and 2008).

Over the past 16 years, New England has averaged slightly more that 12 victories per regular season (12.25 to be exact). To put that in perspective, six NFL franchises have never had a single 12-win season in that time.

Including the playoffs, Brady has a career record of 205-61. His .771 winning percentage is easily the best for QBs who’ve played more than one full season in the league. Brady has won 144 more games than he’s lost–only four other quarterbacks have ever won 144 games, total (Manning, Favre, John Elway and Dan Marino).

Additionally, Brady has never had a year where he threw at least 15 interceptions. For comparison, Manning did it nine times, Marino 10 and Favre 14.

While fans of Manning, Favre, and Montana might argue who the best quarterback of all time is, there’s no question that Brady is better at his age than anyone has ever been before. Montana retired at age 38. Favre played till he was 41, but in his age-39 season, he led the league with 22 interceptions. Manning retired last year at 39, and while his team won the Super Bowl his injury-plagued season featured just nine touchdown passes and 17 INTs.

And 39-year-old Brady?

Physically, Brady looks fitter now than when he entered the NFL.
