Curtis Tunson’s path to starting ATLAS EPD comes from his lifelong experiences as an athlete, coach, educator and consultant.
Curtis has created ATLAS Elite Performance Development to make a singular "space" for athletes and performers of all varieties to develop, train and excel at their respective craft(s) by offering a wide range of support services “under one roof”.
ATLAS recognizes that the pursuit of high-level performance is a multi-dimensional experience that entails multiple channels of support. ATLAS continually evolves into a larger mechanism engaging in innovative, mindful, and stimulating collaborations with psychologists, physical therapists, agents, athletic trainers, coaches, athletic directors, educators, and high achievers from all walks of life.
Curtis earned his B.A. in Sociology from Regis University, and his M.A. in Sport & Performance Psychology from the University of Denver.
Curtis has 10+ years of experience as a coach and helping develop youth athletic programming for many sports and ages, 5+ years as a sports performance specialist, and 5+ years as a mental performance consultant.
