ATHLETE TOUGH Program Testimonials
"Thank you Bo Hanson.
Now we are
Written by an athlete,
“We used the videos as a starting point for our team discussions and then related the concepts to our own specific areas of need.
The ATHLETE TOUGH Program helped me in coaching our athletes and helping them understand themselves better. We talk a lot about being tough, but this gave me different avenues to discuss with them.
The best aspect for me as a college coach were the models and examples Bo used in many of the videos. I love Bo’s ability to direct and concise with his videos. Simple, direct and to the point!
Furthermore it gave our team a chance to really talk through how we each handle situations out on the golf course. The more experienced players were able to provide some great insight for the newer players.
The self reflection is such a powerful tool, particularly when put alongside the coach reflection scores. The variety of activities and videos that keep delivering a strong message to young athletes (of which we have plenty here at Hills Sports) are truly excellent.
Thank you Bo and the team at Athlete Assessments for this wonderful resource. I refer to it on almost a daily basis.
Develop your athletes so they become Athlete Tough
Helping our clients succeed!
The breathing technique Bo taught us helps with controlling my temperament, especially when faced with difficult situations. I practice my breathing daily as it helps me find my neutral self, where I’m not too high or too low in regards to my behavior. It helps with my fitness as well, especially after a conditioning session. When I feel short of breath after a grinding run, I use the breathing practice to help me expand my diaphragm and the upper part of the lung where athletes usually never fully utilize.
“For the team, ATHLETE TOUGH provided the opportunity to develop skills that many of them had not been exposed to before, to talk about it together and learn from each other, as well as discuss that extra commitment required from each of them. As a coach, I have also learnt so much more about my players from this Program, and it has helped me focus on the areas that needed improving.
I thoroughly recommend this Program, particularly if you are looking for that extra bit of commitment from your team that’s not physical, it’s the mental side of sport that is often overlooked, this Program has been really valuable. If you don’t have access to Sports Physiologists, this is a great Program to work through.
It has helped me tremendously in getting to know my players better from the answers that they wrote down in each chapter. I definitely pay attention to them and try to find ways to bring out the best in them.
I am a HUGE fan of this amazing product that Athlete Assessments’ have put together.
The program helped me by getting to know my athletes even better. I learned more of their fears, insecurities, perceived weaknesses, strengths, motivations, as well as how they view themselves and how they view me.
I truly appreciate this program for enabling my players and myself to dig a little bit deeper in order to get greater results both on and off the field. We truly became better people using Athlete Tough.
The change in some of my athletes has been immediate, and the skills we have covered so far instantly applicable. The students regularly refer to the key lessons they’ve learnt and I’ve found it to be a great bonding exercise for my crew.
Thank you. I am personally very interested in this area of coaching and this has been a great tool. I’m looking forward to completing the rest of the book over the season.
It helped me present some ideas in a new way. I was able to make the athletes accountable for their own improvement. It was a great reference tool, something the players could always carry with them and use when necessary as a reminder.
I have seen some improvements in some players and shall continue to use this program with my teams.
Not every season runs to plan and after some points shuffling the girls weren’t able to compete in local finals. Rather than leave the season at a low ebb, they used the energy. They re-grouped at seasons’ end competing in a large carnival on the coast and took all Bo’s lessons to the court there. The result of a long day was a championship and the genuine smiles in the team photo.
What words would the team use to describe ATHLETE TOUGH? “Inspiring, intellectual, great advice, helpful, encouraging, opened my mind, so many important lessons, excellent presentation, well thought out.
ATHLETE TOUGH helped me to create a resource for my MAP students to access, allow students to listen to an elite athlete and his experiences, understand the importance of the wide-ranging area being mentally tough in different competitions and situations.
“My clients have benefited greatly from the program and will continue to do so as I pass along the program to them when I finished working with them.”
“Having access to the Athlete Tough Program has provided me a platform from which to coach with confidence in knowing that the information was developed by a world class athlete and coach. The program adds a level of professionalism that would be very difficult to create without it. Thank you Athlete Assessments for your guidance.”
