what others have to said about the program.....
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

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!

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.
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".
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".

"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!"

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
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
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.
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.
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.
so much! Very
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.
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
"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".
