Here's what others have to said about the program.....

"This eBook is full of great ideas and thoughts and has been written for swimmers. I believe this is an excellent book for senior swimmers, but to me it is a much needed book for swimming coaches. Although the book has been written for swimmers it could be used for anyone involved in competitive sport. In all, a great 'ebook' that could assist any coach in any sport and competitors.

"The program is amazing! I've noticed a major improvement in my confidence, and I find I'm no longer worrying about things before a race so much. I actually look forward to doing the visualization, and I couldn't be happier with my results!
Thanks again".
Stuart Meares World Champion - former Masters Surf Life Saving Championships, Australian Masters National Record Holder 100m Individual Medley

"I was having trouble competing against bigger, older, and stronger swimmers. Thanks in part to your mental training exercises, I have been able to drop a good amount of time in my events! My season was interrupted so it was very difficult to taper properly for the state meet - I used your book to help me focus on what I needed to do to accomplish my goals, not pleasing others or meeting time standards out of my range.

In the past, people told me I was tense but didn't offer me a way to cope with nerves, and your book gave me the tools I could use. At the state meet I dropped a good amount of time, better than I could have imagined considering the awkward taper situation. Even better, I felt very in control of myself on deck and in the water. So thanks for the putting in the time to write a book so useable to someone as young as I am, and I hope you keep writing more books like this".
Joshua Jackson, CA, USA

"I've enjoyed using your mental training program, and have really noticed the difference in my results. It sort of makes me feel like I've got something extra helping me in my races which the others don't have, and every little thing like that helps. I don't worry about who I swim against anymore, I feel like I'm more focused on my own swim".
Jodie Wagner, NSW State Representative, Georgia USA State Representative, NSW State Relay Record Holder, NSW Combined Catholic Representative, All Schools Representative

"Wow!! What a difference!! As a result of using your 'swimmers' program I feel sharper, stronger and more focused. My mind is focused on the task at hand and I am totally unaware of any distractions. Racing is now so easy!!? Thanks!"

"Dear Craig:
I bought your ebook Mind Training for Swimmers with some trepidation never having bought an ebook before and not being a swimmer. I am 52 years old and just learning how to swim for the first time. I was hoping your book would help me even though I am not swimming competitively and indeed it has.

I continually apply your techniques and I have done amazingly well in the pool. My first formal swimming lesson was September 10, 2008. I have had eight lessons to date and I practice three times per week. I have learned the front crawl (freestyle), the backstroke, the elementary backstroke and I am currently learning the breaststroke. I have even successfully done kneeling and standing dives!

I know what needs work (especially the front crawl) and work on those areas while simultaneously applying the numerous techniques you present in your book. I am learning and improving constantly and I feel like a champion.

My instructors and the lifeguards are all in their 20’s; they are very proud of the progress I have made. My husband and I swim together; he encourages me and is very proud of me.

So, perhaps you thought your book was only for competitive swimmers, but it applies to beginners as well. I know I would not have come this far this fast without your book.

Thanks so much! Very truly yours,"
Alene Scoblete

I dont know if you remember me, I emailed you a couple of years ago asking you someting about visualization. Well. I just want to let know that two years ago i was South American champion. Now I'm an Olympic Swimmer. I made my cut for Beijing in the 100 breast and i went best time at Olympics. I'm sure the mental training I've done, thanks to you, have been a huge part in my swimming.
Genaro Prono

I received and downloaded your book. I can't believe how great, and informative it is, I read the book last night and started reading it again today to familiarise my self with everything in it before I break it down to usable parts. In all the reading I have done on swim psychology, you have got it right as far as I am concerned - precise, straight to the point and accurate. My son will acheive great leaps in swimming success with your help.
Neil Hodges

"I would highly recommend this book for every competitive swimmer and i would also recommend it for every parent who is interested to let their teenage swimmers win races. Coaches should seriously read this book and implement it with swimmers. Swimming is not only physical, its psychological as well amd this part is sometimes overlooked in training programs. I improved 5 seconds applying race visualization in my 50 fly. I am a 33yrs old female master swimmer. This is a a must have book".
