The fact is that you can’t reach your true potential as a gymnast without training the mental dimension.
I can’t thank you enough for your program! Yesterday, my daughter did her first back handspring since “losing” it this summer. Today, she did her first round off, back handspring connection since “losing” it this past spring. Both accomplishments literally brought her to shaking tears. I can’t tell you what this has done for her- February 2014 she was doing several back handsprings with beautiful form and connection along with her round off, back handspring, back tuck. For whatever unknown reason, she “lost” them in March. It has been such a painful time for my husband and I to watch her be so sad and to watch her ask “why” she couldn’t do the skills that once came so easily to her. She was lacking in “mental toughness” as you call it. She is gradually gaining in that area, all thanks to your program and her willingness to persevere. She said last night that Santa came early and helped her get her skills back. Magical gifts come in magical ways. Thank you so much for your quick email reply a few weeks ago. – A Happy and Relieved Parent

Dr.G: I want to let you know just what a difference your 14 Steps set has made for our daughter, Sarah, in her gymnastics. She was having such a tough time with performance anxiety and would do well in practice and then fall apart at meets! Sarah was at the height of college recruiting and hoping to secure a full scholarship to a Division I school when she started working with your set, which arrived the day before Regionals. She stuck those earbuds in her ears & off she went. When my husband and I arrived at her meet (1 or 2 days later), we instantly saw a difference. Sarah used to get nervous and stressed out at these kinds of meets. Not that day! Instead she was excited, happy and like her old self, full of positive energy! She had a killer meet, qualified for Nationals and caught the attention of a lot of college coaches there! Her performance at Nationals gave her added respect and earned her a full ride to her first choice school! Without a doubt, you have played a tremendous part in her success and we will be forever grateful to you. We have recommended your program to many teammates and will continue to do so. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts! – Kathleen, Illinois
