Transitioning to consultancy, Jim brought his extensive expertise to Millan Enterprises in late 2022, where he currently contributes as the Chief Operating Officer.

Leadership: Reagan Prather, Leadership & Mental Performance Coach, Top Mental Game

Reagan joined Top Mental Game to be at the forefront of mental performance coaching and to help athletes and organizations create strengths from weaknesses so they can reach their true potential. A Texas native, Reagan was a multi-sport athlete in high school (soccer, volleyball) and has over 20 years of experience in the sport and performance enhancement industry. Today, with two multi-sport athlete children in high school, including a state finalist in Trap and Sporting Clays, Reagan has consistently and successfully employed the tools necessary to help high achievers perform at elite levels.

Reagan received her Bachelor of Business Administration in Management Information Systems from Texas Tech University, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 1999. Upon graduation, Reagan was recruited by Motorola in Austin, Texas, as a systems analyst and later became a design engineer. She traveled extensively as an interface for Motorola’s software development teams and their clients to ensure the software programs efficiently and effectively met the client’s unique needs and applications. 

After two years with Motorola, Reagan chose to pursue her dream career in sport and performance coaching in Killeen, Texas, where her husband served as an Apache helicopter pilot at Fort Hood. She taught business education and coached women’s varsity soccer at both the high school and club level and coached the high school men’s and women’s cross-country teams. Reagan began to personalize her coaching and mentorship of high achieving adolescent athletes, assisting them and their parents with university selection and the attainment of collegiate sports scholarships. She accompanied her athletes on recruiting visits and communicated directly, as their advocate, with coaches and admissions departments.

In 2005 Reagan and her husband moved to South Korea where she had their two children. She continued her training with military families through injury rehabilitation and in general wellness including physical, mental, and nutritional health.

Reagan and her family moved back to Fort Hood in 2008 where she became involved with CrossFit. She became a coach for Centurion CrossFit Fort Hood and was selected to participate as an instructor in a US Army sanctioned soldier readiness study in conjunction with CrossFit corporate. She was charged with training large groups of soldiers to achieve superiority, both mentally and physically, in high intensity functional movement as it relates to force readiness.

After moving to Clarksville, Tennessee, in 2010, Reagan continued training adult and adolescent athletes within the military and private sector from 2010 through 2014. As her clientele expanded, she required more space to accommodate her growing business. A true Cinderella story, Reagan opened the doors to CrossFit Clarksville (CFC) in July of 2014 with over 150 members. The 13,000 square foot facility quickly became the premier training facility in the Clarksville/Fort Campbell area. Reagan recruited and trained a diverse team of professional coaches who in turn also trained adult and adolescent athletes. Reagan’s clientele included many individuals from the unique military units on Fort Campbell including the Special Operations Aviation Regiment, Special Forces Groups, and others.

Under Reagan’s leadership, CFC partnered with Austin Peay State University (APSU) in 2016 and 2017 to host the “Governor’s Games” in Fortera Stadium on the campus of APSU. The Governor’s Games was an elite level CrossFit competition that attracted athletes from all over the region. Proceeds from the events benefitted the APSU Military Alumni Chapter which yielded a fully endowed scholarship in only two years, enabling them to immediately award scholarships to military affiliated students.

In 2022 Reagan earned her Master of Science from APSU in Health and Human Performance with a concentration in Performance Enhancement and Coaching, a degree focusing heavily on the mental aspect of elite performance. Upon graduation, Reagan was recruited as an adjunct faculty member in the Health and Human Performance Department teaching wellness classes focusing on the physical and mental aspects of health and wellness specific to young adults.

The importance of a positive, confident, fortitudinous mindset has always played an essential role in Reagan’s coaching style whether for physical improvement in sport or the indisputable benefits general mental preparedness (GMP) provides for anyone striving for excellence. Reagan has applied this philosophy through every level of her coaching from young athletes to business leaders to military elites. Let her help you perform at your best when it matters most.
