What Others Have Said…

“This Program isn’t just about the theory behind improving athlete toughness. It gives you things along the way to help build toughness and put the theories and facts to work.”

I hope my team is the only one in the country that uses it because it is for sure an advantage to have mentally tough athletes…

“Our athletes loved working through the book with the Coaches. There was a marked difference in the team dynamic and resiliency during the season.”

“We need to educate our student-athletes, many of whom have come to us with a very different skillset from their Coaches, and provide them with concrete strategies they can employ to achieve mental toughness. ATHLETE TOUGH does that, and does it very well.”

What is the best aspect of the Athlete Tough Program – everything!! Having a program like this available to our young players has been amazing. In just a few short weeks, they have increased their communication, starting to hold each other accountable, and raising their expectations of not only themselves but each other.”
