Mental toughness is essential for any athlete aspiring to perform at a higher level. You need it to stay focused during practices and games, as well as outside of sports.
STACK has just the book to help you develop that focus. Mind Gym: An Athlete’s Guide To Inner Excellence, by sport psychology consultant Gary Mack and David Casstevens, a senior writer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, comes recommended by MLB All-Star Ken Griffey, Jr. and WNBA All-Star and Olympic silver medalist Michele Timms.
“Mind Gym hits a home run,” says Griffey. “If you want to build mental muscle for the major leagues, read this book.”
Mack draws from his experiences with top teams in professional sports to guide young athletes seeking a “head edge” over their competition. Containing 40 accessible lessons, Mack’s book “helps you understand the importance that your mind plays in reaching the top,” says Timms.
Readers agree. The book receives mostly five-star reviews on Amazon.com. At just 240 pages, it would be a great addition to your summer reading.
