Physical Skills Only Carry an Athlete So Far.
You want to be great.
To make it to the next level.
To be relied upon by your coaches and teammates.
To crush it when the pressure is on.
To be known as a big-game player.
To lead the team to victory and find the podium when the going gets tough.
Chances are, you're reading this page because one of the following has happened to you:
1. You underperform in big situations
2. You've embarrassingly melted down under pressure
3. You get stuck in deep slumps
4. Your confidence is low, and it just gets worse as bad performances snowball
4. You've developed a negative dialogue in your head that eats at you
5. You constantly doubt yourself and fear failure
6. Reaching your longterm goals seems impossible
7. You're constantly frustrated, setting standards you can't meet
8. Your sport feels like a job
Does this sound like you?
Does it sound like your son or daughter?
Does it sound like a player on the team you coach?
If so, I'm here to help. I have a solution.
Why Should You Listen to Me?
1. I studied the Philosophy of sport extensively.
I hold a degree [Double-Major] in Philosophy & Psychology.
2. I train young athletes for a living and understand the challenges they face.
I talk with coaches and parents all the time, so I know the issues they're dealing with.
3. I LIVED IT!
I lived every up and down as a professional athlete. I tackled them all and I'll help you do the same.
I deeply understand how today's athlete feels withstanding pressure from all directions. I started at age 8 and retired from pro baseball at age 30.
I would have never lasted as a professional athlete had I not learned to meditate, visualize myself at my best, and adapt new strategies each year to deal with increasingly high stakes, performance standards, and pressure.
In the end, I made it much farther than I should have because of how skilled I was at reframing negative situations into opportunities to grow, get better, and stay positive.
This course was created for athletes of ANY sport.
The lessons are universal, yet I connect them with nearly a dozen personal stories of how I dealt with the pressure, slumps, failure, injuries, tough coaches, teammates, and the grind of 23 years playing my sport.
I Was Just Like You. A Kid With a Dream.
I didn't know then how hard it would be.
I got knocked down a lot in my sport. I kept going.
Two arm surgeries. I became an All-Star after each one.
Five full years lost to injury. I found new ways to get better.
MEAN coaches at my throat. I learned how to be coachable.
Constant fear of failure, doubt and low confidence. I re-wrote the script.
That Little Kid Made Something of Himself.

Books Are Great, But Do Young Athletes Want to Sit Down and Read a Mental Skills Book?
I know for a fact that young people today consume their media primarily in the form of video.
They watch YouTube, TV, and share the best videos of the day on social media.
Few want to sit down and read, even though we all know how valuable reading is.
Video is a GREAT Format For Teaching These Skills
Rather than fight it, I did what no one else has yet done: I created a video course to teach mental skills training.
Most athletes will probably not sit down and read a 200-page mental training book; that's just the reality of our modern world...
...But now, they don't have to.
Athletes can watch on their computer, hook it up to the TV, or use their iOS device and watch on the go. It's the perfect solution for today's modern athlete.
And Video Is PERFECT For Teams
Want to teach your entire team how to improve their mental performance? You'd have to bring in a speaker or start a book club.
But with The Resolute Athlete, you can grab a team license and give every player his or her own copy of the course. Or, just fire up the laptop, connect to a TV, and watch as a group.
Either way, the course just WORKS.
Stop wasting time, stop feeling disappointed, frustrated, and down on your confidence.
It doesn't have to be this way.

I'm passionate about helping young athletes find their their courage, their confidence and their work ethic. If I can help them with that, they'll have the tools they need to do great things for the rest of their lives.
I'm a former professional pitcher and I specialize in pitching, throwing and strength training for baseball and softball players. This is why I founded Warbird Training Academy in Central Illinois back in 2010, and it's been a ton of fun working long hours with the next generation of ballplayers.
I speak to aspiring athletes and write for numerous fitness and baseball websites. My first book, Pitching Isn’t Complicated, was published in 2013 and I record a podcast sharing stories from my long career, called Dear Baseball Gods.
