I’ve often been asked by swimmers what they should be thinking about and doing the night before and day of their big meet and what they need to focus on in order to swim their best. THE RACER’S EDGE is my answer!
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, Swim Coach, Illinois
- Do you get too nervous before your races to swim your fastest?
- Do you have trouble leaving your bad swims behind you?
- Are you bothered by last minute negativity and self-doubts?
- Do you have trouble sleeping the night before that BIG race?
- Would you like to be mentally tough going into that important race?
What a great tool! My kids love this pre-meet program and all have it on their iPods. As a group, I’ve noticed a consistent improvement in their ability to swim fast under pressure. – Mike P, New Hampshire
When it comes to race time, the difference between swimming fast or slow is almost always between your ears! If your focus before or during your race is off, you’ll get too nervous to swim your best. The Racer’s Edge is a specially designed mental toughness “meet companion” for the serious swimmer to use the nights before and day of the meet to help you get mentally ready to swim your fastest!
I used to choke real bad at my taper meets. I would get so freaked before my 100 Fly and 200 IM, which are my events, that I would end up in tears behind the blocks. Not exactly a great way to start and it used to frustrate me that I would swim faster in our practices during taper than at the meet. The Racer’s Edge helped me change all that! I learned where my nervousness was coming from and how to stay calm before my swims. Best of all, I’ve been swimming the way I know how! Thanks Dr. G! – Stephanie, Maryland

Alan, two weeks before our taper meet I always have my kids working with your Racer’s Edge. We do a few minutes as part of dryland. Since I started this four years ago, my swimmers have consistently performed better under pressure. They look calmer and are having fun and as you always say, ‘a happy swimmer is a fast swimmer!’ Your help is so appreciated! – Timothy, Oregon
Dr. Alan, I just thought I’d tell you that I think your Racer’s Edge is AWESOME! I used to get so psyched out before my races that I’d swim tight and fall apart in the middle. I never knew why until I started listening to your MP3 program. I knew I spent too much energy worrying about other kids in my race, but I never knew how to stop that. NOW I know thanks to you and my times show it! – Derek, Pennsylvania
Take The Racer’s Edge with you to your meets. It will truly give you the competitive edge over your opponents and help you race the way that you’ve trained!
