Stefanie Odenbrett has been coached by Alisa for many, many years. Dating all the way back to when Stefanie was a young gymnast, she’s been guided with strength, poise, and determination. 

There are many life skills that have been transferred inside and outside of the gym. Read on to see what Stefanie has learned by watching and working with Alisa!

How long have you known Alisa?

I’ve known Alisa since I was eight years old, so roughly 24 years. Over the past 4 years, Alisa has become my personal mentor and more of a life coach. She coached me through numerous life/work events and obstacles.

How would you describe Alisa’s Coaching? 

I would describe her coaching as positive, patient, and committed. With these traits, she has always allowed me to make mistakes and handled it graciously after. I admire her ability to point out what I could have or should have done differently. She has taught me so much from self-reflection, patience, personal growth, and mindset. 

What are some of the most impactful things she’s taught you?

I think the two things Alisa taught me that I use daily are the skill of calendar blocking. Being a mom, working, going to school, and a training athlete, almost every day is accounted for from the minute I wake up at 4:30 AM until the minute I go to bed each night. Without knowing how to prioritize and calendar block I would be so overwhelmed with everything. The second thing I think far outweighs the first is mindset. 

I feel as though I have the most positive mindset about taking on all of life’s challenges because she taught me I will always be my biggest self fulfilling prophesy. With a positive mindset, open to challenges, and good preparation, you’ll either win or learn, never lose.
