It can be REALLY frustrating to work hard in practice and not have it pay off in competition, and even more upsetting to suddenly lose skills that you have been doing for months or longer! You KNOW you’re a better gymnast than that and you KNOW you are capable of doing these skills. If only you could get your body to cooperate!
“I want to thank you for your amazing program! Two months ago when I reached out to you, my daughter was done with gymnastics. She wanted to quit because she did not feel she would ever do her skills again. She was tired of being yelled at and tired of crying each day at the gym. Yesterday she had her meet and she placed 4th on floor with a 9.350!!!! The change that has come with using your program is astounding. She uses it not only with her gymnastics but in everything she does!” Monica, Maryland

“I am a former Olympic level gymnast and wanted you to know that without the help of your CDs, (Gymnastics With The Competitive Edge) I’m not sure I would have been able to hit when the pressure was on. I had developed weird blocks and your Gymnastics CDs helped me to develop the reputation as the most consistent and trustworthy team member. I competed on the Pan-Pac team, the World team and made the team at Olympic Trials! I now coach and have all my girls listen to your program!” Mary Beth Arnold
I get it. Over the past 34 years I’ve worked with hundreds of gymnasts at every level, from Olympians down to Compulsory level to help them overcome fears and blocks, stay calm under pressure and perform to their potential. I have spoken multiple times at the USA Gymnastics National Congress as well as at a number of Regional Congresses around the country and have written on the subjects of overcoming fears and blocks, and peak performance for International Gymnast and Technique magazines. What if I could teach you the same mental strategies that I’ve used with gymnasts to help them lift the level of their performance? My revolutionary approach to understanding and working through fears and blocks will transform your experience in the gym, help you recapture lost skills and get you performing like your “old self” again!
“Dr. G, I can’t thank you enough for your gymnastics program! Yesterday, my 8 1/2 year old daughter did her first back handspring since “losing” it this past summer. Today, she did her first round off, back handspring connection since “losing” it this spring. Both accomplishments literally brought her to shaking tears. I can’t tell you what this has done for her! This 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. We didn’t have the answers or ways to explain things to her until we got your material. My daughter is gradually gaining in mental toughness, 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. Your prompt input and training set have brought so much joy to all of us!” Michelle, Ohio

“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

“Thank you Alan! My eldest daughter has benefitted from your encouragement through your gym CD’s while she was overcoming fear as a younger gymnast who had to leave the sport because of her fears! She has since had a cinderella-like story, advancing to D1 competition at UCLA and becoming the most consistent, high scoring member of her team in her final two years there! After a national championship, performing professionally with world class gymnasts on 3 ESPN2 specials and doing some Hollywood stunt work, and once again, against the odds, she is training to compete as an elite and hopes to compete internationally. Just thought you might like to know that one of the little girls asking you for help a few years ago, turned out okay. We are so very grateful for your help and for what you do and your programs do for others.” John, California
