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 and have written on the topic of overcoming fears in the gym for International Gymnast as well as Technique magazines. I’ve learned first hand the challenges coaches face helping their gymnasts beat fear and perform to their potential.
Dr. G, Thank You! Thank You! Your package worked perfectly! My daughter listened to the first audio file and said that it has already helped her! She is an 11 year old competitive gymnast and facing some mental blocks on her back tumbling, skills she has performed for sometime now. After gym today she mentioned how frustrated she was and how she used to feel like just giving up and quitting. I found your website last week and after listening to your short video, thought it might be worth the investment to give it a try. And I am so glad I did! Gratefully – Roxanne, Texas
Gymnastics Coaches want to know:
- What can I do to better handle my frustration when my gymnasts start balking?
- How can I work with gymnasts who are frozen with irrational fears?
- How come so many suddenly and mysteriously lose their skills?
- What causes them to choke under big meet pressure?
- What can I do to build their mental toughness?
- How do I get their parents to work with me, NOT against me?
We purchased your Gymnastics MP3 series for my son who is a level 6 gymnast. He was completely blocked on his round off back handspring back tuck and was starting to crumble at meets. I found your CD series and downloaded it to his ipod. He religiously listened to it and I saw a weight lifted off of his shoulders when he realized that his block was real and that all kinds of gymnasts suffer from them. This past weekend, I saw a confidence in him that I have never seen. Even having just turned 9, he sat by himself concentrating on the next event, and he nailed everything to the best of his abilities! I have given his coach the links to your website in hopes that he’ll share it with the other coaches and gymnasts on the team. I’m wholeheartedly pleased with the CD’s and the completely different gymnast I saw this past weekend. Thank you so much! – JR, Indiana
I get it. You want your gymnasts to succeed, and it can be incredibly frustrating to understand why they’re not going for skills that you know they can do! What if I could provide you with the same tools and strategies I’ve used to help thousands of stuck gymnasts overcome their fears and build mental toughness?
I am a former Olympic level gymnast and wanted you to know that without the help of your CDs, 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

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
This package is based on my extensive experience working at gyms around the country and one-on-one with gymnasts at every level helping them overcome performance fears and blocks and perform to their potential. In it, I’m including everything I know about training mentally tough gymnasts and getting their parents to work with, not against you!
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, MD
