Kate Allgood’s life has always involved balancing a healthy body and mind. As early as the age of two, her father strapped “cheese cutter” twin blade skates on her as she tottered across the Canadian ice. By six years old, she was enrolled in organized ice hockey playing against all boys– and winning. She continued gliding on this tract through her university education, where she received numerous awards and was recognized as one of the best female athletes in Canada. Kate was also pegged as a potential candidate for the 2010 Winter Olympics.
After a successful athletic career, Kate found her passion for helping others to improve and enhance their mental health and performance. Just like with hockey, Kate has quickly become a recognized leader and one of a small percentage of people to have risen to the very top of her field as a practitioner and for her contributions to sport psychology through her book “Get Into the Zone”.
Kate holds a double Masters degree with honors in psychology, specializing in sport psychology, and general psychology with a concentration in family psychology. She graduated with distinction for both degrees. Kate rounds out her education with a certification in sports hypnosis and Muscle Activation Techniques. As well as being a certified interpreter and user of the TAIS assessment.
In 2010 Kate decided to open Quantum Performance, a high performance coaching firm specializing in the mental training of high performers, that combines all her knowledge and skills. Kate understands the demands that elite athletes, fitness enthusiasts and business professionals face and provides solutions that she knows work. Clients include everyone from professional, college, high school athletes and Navy SEALs to ironman triathletes and yoga enthusiasts.
Kate continues to be active in numerous sports and continues to play ice hockey on a weekly basis at the Kroc Center rink. She currently resides in the San Diego community of Clairemont.
