Happy Racers Go Faster with Sports Psychologist Dr. Kristin Keim | KoopCast Episode 37

Read more

In this episode of the KoopCast Coach Jason Koop speaks with Kristin Keim.

Kristin Keim is a sports psychologist out of Newberry, South Carolina. She has one of the more renown practices sports psychology practices in the country today that consists of all types of endurance athletes, cyclists, triathletes, MMA fighters. 

Her modus operandi, ‘Happy Racers Go Faster’ reflects her own innate positivity, and also her relentless pursuit to get the most out of the athletes she works with by centering on a philosophy that puts the person first not the athlete first. 

Kristin’s practice blends her academic background in clinical psychology with her personal background as a national-caliber cyclist and you will definitely feel that theme of an athlete who has been there and done that fused with a practitioner that wants to do the same. I caught Kristin right after she presented to our coaching group, and we bring some of those lessons into this conversation on how to athletes should focus internally, how they can go about building a village and how happiness and fiery competitiveness can coexist. We also spend some time going over how ultrarunning is a fantastic case study in mental fortitude and strategies on how to prevent the dreaded DNF. 

I think regardless of what kind of endurance athlete you are, ultrarunner or cyclist, you will gain valuable insight into how to step up your mental game. Kristin’s outgoing, pull no punches and insightful demeanor is infectious down to her very laugh that’s punctuated by her subtle beautiful southern drawl. I must warn you, there is a sprinkle of salty language interspersed in this podcast. Consider yourself forewarned. \

Body Image: Disordered Relationships with Exercise and Food with Dr. Kristin Keim

Read more

Dr. Kris Keim is a well-known sports psychologist and work's with some of cycling's top athletes. She has her doctorate in clinical psychology and her master’s in sports psychology AND she was actually my very first podcast guest.  The link is in the show notes if you want to go back and listen to it!  She is incredibly passionate about helping others.  She said, "During my competitive cycling career I started to understand how the mind and body worked in a way that could help and/or hinder one's performance. Being a part of a team was something I enjoyed, but it also opened the door for me to help others reach their full potential. Honestly, I would rather suffer on a climb for a teammate and help them stay calm and collected so they could go for the win. This mindset helped me realize that perhaps my purpose was not behind the handlebars, but rather behind an athlete/client offering them psychological and emotional support. This is what I refer to as the human side of sport and performance. Remembering that athletes are people who have feelings and imperfections." She is an expert and is well-versed in a lot of the topics that come up daily with her clients.  We'll go deep into one of those topics today: body image and disordered relationships with food and exercise.

I'm so thankful to have the privilege to know and work with Dr. Keim.  She has been my rock when things get hard.    As athletes and even as human beings, we all have had our struggles with wanting to look good, wanting to feel good, trying to have a healthy relationship with food and also, trying to have a healthy relationship with exercise.  Some of us might night even realize that our relationship with exercise could be unhealthy.  We simply just call ourselves "passionate endurance athletes" but there is a balance between obsession and being healthy.

In the show, we talk about how to cultivate a positive body image, our self-worth and how it can be dangerously tied to how we look, what a disordered relationship with food or exercise looks like and how we can work on it, and the importance of having people to talk to about these things.
