Andrew Simpson (@coachandrewsimpson), Founder of Player’s Fitness & Performance (PFP), fell in love with fitness while in college. He discovered that by transforming his own energy, athleticism, and mindset, he was able to change his life for the better and knew he needed to help others do the same.

In 2013, Andrew established PFP and began a lifelong mission to ignite change and raise the bar for leadership in gyms and youth sports across the country. Over the past decade, Andrew and his team have coached more than 1,000 student-athletes and adults to become more confident and reach their full potential.

Andrew is also the author of three books on youth sports. Today we will spend our time discussing The Youth Truth: Coaching and Parenting in Today’s CRAZY Youth Sports World as well as some of his ideas from his book on mindset. Learn more at
