My Story


My Story

 

I am from a small town and like most kids from small towns, I found trouble.

My parents made the difficult decision at the age of 12 to take a drive to the only place they knew for help; Fork Union Military Academy in Fork Union, Virginia. 

At first, I cried myself to sleep each night. Gradually, I discovered that I was part of a brotherhood guided by faculty that were dedicated to making dreams become a reality. 

I accomplished one of my first dreams by becoming a walk-on running back for the University of Colorado’s Big XII Championship team. By the time I graduated I had multiple surgeries and concussions, I was beaten down. I felt like I was right back where I started, still that scared little kid that didn't know what to do next. 

"I had believed the lie that achievement equates to fulfillment.”

While earning a doctorate degree I healed myself with the help of some of the greatest mind and body practitioners in the world. Through this process something miraculous happened; something changed in me that had a lifelong impact. 

"I knew I would dedicate my life to helping others heal their pain so they could accomplish their dreams.”

The curriculum at Dr. Judd Institute was developed through over a decade of extensive research while working directly with student-athletes. These patent pending methods were formulated with the intent of getting to the origin of a persons issues so they can live more authentic lives and not be controlled by the fear and trauma from their past.

Dr. Judd Institute’s global mission is to help others heal themselves in both mind and body.

Who I've Helped

I work with athletes across all competitive levels, including high school, college, professional, and elite (i.e., Olympic). Locally, the scope of my practice starts with student-athletes at Boulder High and Fairview where I’ve had the honor of coaching  with Coach Tom McCartney.

Mind & Body

I provide student-athletes with the mentorship and overall support that I desperately required as a collegiate athlete. My methods for life coaching ensures that athletes remain balanced and empowered to fulfill their goals, and are also able to overcome injuries by being prepared for any obstacles along the way.

Optimized Adults

I also work with fitness-minded, driven adults who want to improve their performance and are open to a mind-body approach to living.

 
Dr. Judd taught me the importance of maintaining a balanced mind, body, and spirit. Years ago I was 143Ibs at 5’11”, weak and always tired. Largely thanks to Dr. Judd and his Institute, I am now 37 years old, and 172Ibs at 11% body fat and living the life of my dreams!”

Holistic Philosophy


Our Mind-Body Philosophy

 

The Chek Institute is where Dr. Judd and Coach Sawyer crossed paths and decided to join forces for an integrative approach to healing both the mind and body. Coach Sawyer has a deep understanding of functional anatomy for the effects of overall muscle imbalances and postural considerations to treat orthopedic injuries in every sport. 

You will experience our unique approach to preventing orthopedic injury by making special considerations that improve balance, dynamic strength, and nutrition. Due to our capabilities of training multiple sport athletes we teach everyone how to identify instabilities, being corrective postural or life issues that have been holding you back from high performance in every area of your life.

“We improve our lives through cultivating a loving relationship of self. When self love is our foundation our pain can be alleviated. Then and only then are we capable to achieve what our hearts desire while living a life of fulfillment; I am here to help you along your journey, every step of the way!”

We don't just talk this mindset or study these methods...

We live them, and require those we work with to keep each other accountable as well. Unfortunately, very few professionals seem to lead a healthy life in both mind and body.

By taking a Mind & Body approach to living we are conscious of what sources our decisions in life. We challenge you to do the same. Most clients that enter our office do not do so on a winning streak.

Physical and emotional pain is trying to teach you a lesson, and we are here to help you not only feel better, but to become better!

As you see in the diagram below Dr. Judd had a myriad of injuries throughout his athletic career as a college football player. These injuries were a wake-up call from the pain teacher that were complemented by unresolved emotional pain from his past.

Pain will always manifest itself in very unique ways through our thoughts and how we feel physically; To heal we must have a synonymous approach for both the mind & body.

First, when you are injured you experience suffering because you have lost a piece of your health. 

1.


Second, every athlete that we work with has experienced unresolved issues (e.g. financial strain) that can be traced back prior to an injury.

2.


Only when we start to connect to what are bodies are teaching us can we become pain free and perform at our highest level in life.

How to Apply Our Philosophy

Health

To pursue what we love we must have a strong foundation. We maintain this foundation through how we eat, move, rest, and play. When we practice these values on a daily basis we remain a living example of how to balance ourselves, which provides fulfillment in our lives.

Dr. Judd has designed a Foundational Test that provides a detailed assessment of each area of your life. After taking the Foundational Test you will have a clear visual representation of what areas need improvement and the specific actions to implement for remaining balanced in both mind & body.


Joy

Joy can be taught by explaining the difference between self-acceptance and self-esteem. Self-esteem is dictated on how you have relied on the external (world’s acceptance) to feel good about yourself. This kind of dependence on external validation does not allow authenticity in creating the life that you want. After you begin to develop a love of self, then it becomes natural to love what you do. I never want others to feel the depth of pain and despair that I felt as I transitioned from being an injured collegiate athlete into my professional career.

“Once self-love is the foundation of our lives, then all of our actions have direction, purpose, and meaning towards the fulfillment of our dreams.” - Dr. Judd


Relationships

Relationships are the cornerstone to developing our Dream Team. Who are the top 3 friends in your life you discuss your dreams with and visa versa? 

“Show me your friends and I will show you your future.” - Unknown

What family members have you allowed into your life and how much energy are you willing to give to those dynamics? Does the energy you place in these relationships allow the support you need for your dreams to become a reality?

A healthier road to your goals

Our work together will be to slowly break down unhealthy thinking while balancing out your mind and body so we see your dreams accomplished together.

After completing a detailed in office assessment that targets the major areas in your life that require balance, we will come up with “action items” that need to be integrated into your daily schedule.

In addition to our weekly sessions, I make myself available for periodic check-ins (10 to 20 minute phone sessions) throughout the week to ensure these action items are making a positive change in your life.


Dr. Judd has the extraordinary ability get to the heart of what’s troubling athletes by becoming the player’s advocate and providing recommendations that help parents, teachers, trainers, and coaches to work together and do what is best for the athlete to succeed.
