Over the past 33 years, I’ve worked with swim coaches around the world who want to help their athletes consistently be at their best. I’ve learned first hand the challenges coaches face while training mentally tough swimmers.
“In my experience, Alan Goldberg is one of the leading sports performance consultants in swimming today. His knowledge and effectiveness is based on years of experience working with novice to elite swimmers. DMTS is yet another one of his fine contributions and will really help you train your swimmers to be mentally tough.” -David Marsh, Olympic Coach
Chances are you want to know:
- Why do my swimmers fall apart under pressure?
- How come so many go faster in off events than their best ones?
- What causes them to lose to slower opponents?
- How do I help them bust slumps and break through plateaus?
- What can I do to build their mental toughness?
- How do I get parents to work with me, NOT against me?
Dr. G, Bought your Best Mental Toughness package at The Cherry Hill, NJ clinic this year. Loved it. Reserved a classroom every Monday night through our season. Felt that it made a huge impact on our season. Our young team finished 8-2 in our highly competitive League. We graduated 6 strong swimmers last year and most felt we’d be in a building mode. The potential was there and your program helped them to believe it and achieve it. The small team of 15 swimmers and 5 lacrosse players (there for the endurance and strength training and comic relief) finished runner up in our division 2 Sectionals! The 11 finalists scored enough points to take their first league plaque since our pool was built. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! – Sandy, New York
I get it. You want your swimmers to succeed, and it can be frustrating to understand why they’re not performing the way you know they can. What if I could provide you with the same tools and strategies I’ve used to help thousands of coaches build mentally tough athletes and teams?
“The best news is that I introduced The Racer’s Edge to my most troubled senior girls with remarkable results. Alan, you have a great voice and delivery and you speak to the swimmers on their own terms in the rhythm of their own language. Thanks for your help!! It’s really made a difference!” -John Bittner, Homer Maritime Swimming, Massachusetts
This package is based on my extensive experience working one-on-one with swimmers at every level helping them overcome performance fears and blocks and swim to their potential. I’m handing over everything I know about training mentally tough swimmers and their parents!
“I can honestly say that Dr. G’s mental toughness swim series helped me stay confident and focused, and helped me believe in myself as I attempted yet again to make the Olympic team. The CDs helped me correct a number of mental mistakes that I had been making which had hurt me in past big meets. I have to give Dr. G’s CDs big credit in helping me make the team and bring home a relay gold! They were an important part of my overall training.” Sheila Taormina, Olympic Gold Medalist & World Class Triathlete

My coaching staff listened to the Parents’ CDs with me and are all very excited, so excited in fact that we are hosting a workshop for parents. I gave another copy of this CD directly to a couple of swim parents … the response was so positive these parents have volunteered to participate in helping to run the parent workshop. They listened to the CDs and consciously put into practice some of your parent guidelines. As a result, not only are they enjoying closer relationships with their children, but the kids are enjoying themselves again! – Tim, North Carolina
