Based on the extensive work I’ve done with swimmers at every level over the past 34 years, I’ve developed a hands-on tool for athletes to gauge their current level of mental toughness and then systematically strengthen their mental muscles!
This book really helped me go faster. I used to get pretty nervous before my races, swim tight and then die in the middle. Now I know what to think about and how to focus and my times have dropped. And my back half of my races is always strong! Thanks Dr. G. This is good stuff! – Elaine S. Baltimore, Maryland
- Do you swim faster in practice than you do in meets?
- Do you get easily intimidated or psyched out by other swimmers?
- Is choking a problem for you?
- Do you go faster in your off events than your best ones?
- Are you stuck on a certain time and just can’t seem to break through?
- Do you get flooded with last minute negative thoughts?
Dr. G. Thank you so much. Your workbook, (SWIM FAST) and audios has helped John be more calm at meets. No longer does he work himself up before his big events and fall apart the way he used to. The difference in his swims is amazing. He looks so much more relaxed during his races and the results show it! You are a treasure to us! – Carla, Oregon
Since big meet racing is 95% mental, you had better have your head on straight when you get up on the blocks for that all-important event. “Swim Fast” will systematically train you to consistently go your fastest when it counts the most. It’s a must for swimmers who would like to take their swimming to the next level.
A great little workbook that will help you get a handle on what goes on between your ears. Goldberg always talks about ‘RACES ARE WON AND LOST BEFORE THE START’ and in Swim Fast he shows you why, and how to get your head working for you! Should be part of EVERY swimmer’s dryland training. – Paul, Coach, North Carolina
- Master last minute pre-race doubts and negativity
- Concentrate like a champion
- Stay calm and composed under pressure
- Quickly rebound from disappointing swims
- Mentally prepare for your taper meet
- Develop WINNING motivation
- Worksheets immediately help you get a handle on effective mental strategies
My high school coach used to call me a ‘head case’ and I was starting to believe her. I would always swim great in practice and then add time in meets. I never knew why and it was killing my confidence. One of my teammates had your book, Swim Fast and she let me read it. After reading just the Introduction, I got my mom to order my own copy. My pre-race nerves are now gone and I am swimming fast in meets. After High School Champs, where I got all Life Time Bests and helped our team win the title, my coach publicly apologized for that label and told the entire team that she had ‘made a mistake and my proper title was Ms. Mental Toughness!’ I love it. – Jen, Illinois
Read the title! ‘Swim Fast When It Counts The Most’ and if you really want to do that, work with this little book. It helped me and when I gave it to my little sister, it helped her. Dr. G knows what he is talking about. – Will, Delaware
“Swim Fast” will first help you test your current level of mental toughness and then understand the mental differences between your fast and slow swims. “Swimming Fast When It Counts The Most” is an important mental toughness workbook for any level swimmer who is serious about improving his/her meet performance.
