The Fearless Mind

Varvara Lepchenko Professional Tennis Player

“While mental toughness is important for all athletes, it is particularly important for tennis players as we are often all alone out on the court with no one to talk to or coach us. Dr. Manning has provided me with tools necessary to stay focused and perform at the highest level possible. I compete all over the world and have an unpredictable travel schedule; however, Dr. Manning has been very accommodating and accessible. A lot of our work can be done online and over the telephone and he makes sure that I am doing what I need to do to be successful.”

Jacob Hannemann MLB/Chicago Cubs

“The fearless mind has been incredibly valuable to me personally and to my performance on the diamond this past year! Baseball is such a mental sport and Dr. Manning has been a huge help. Visualizing myself performing at each at bat has given me a huge edge. I have learned a lot and hope to keep learning new ways to increase my performance! Potential + Training – Interference = High Performance! This program has helped me get rid of my interference!”

Heather McPhie US Ski Team/Red Bull Athlete

“Within a few sessions working with Craig I felt my mental state exponentially changing. He gave me the tools, and kept me accountable to make the positive changes I needed to excel in my sport. I feel my opportunity to compete at the Olympics as well as finishing the 2010 World Cup season ranked 2nd overall in the sport of Freestyle Mogul Skiing is largely due to the mental training I learned from Craig. Besides the affect our work has had on my competition and training on the hill, it has also carried over into all areas of my life and I am happier and more balanced than ever before.”

Chas Guldemond 2014 Dew Tour champion, USA Team Snowboarder

“The mind is a powerful thing! Doc Craig and the Fearless Mind have helped me use it to my full potential! Belief, confidence and a good plan are my keys to true performance. Talking with Doc Manning and using the fearless mind have been amazing for me and I would recommend it to anyone seeking to compete at their best!”
