Details of the training

Here is the course syllabus detailing what is involved in the Mental Toughness Trainer Certification program. The greatest therapist in the world is useless without clients.  There are people out there, right now, with problems hurting their life who are waiting for you to help them.  You need to know how to reach them and you need to charge for your services because people do not value what they don’t pay for.  You get much better outcome results for your clients when you charge a fair rate and they are motivated to get out of their problems.  That’s the bottom line.

A System and a Structure

It is my intention to give you everything you need (and then some), to not only assist athletes and competitors to achieve their performance potential more often, but to give you a system and a structure that will allow you to work with just about any type of mentally healthy person who wants to improve their performance in anything.


Upon completion, if you are present on at least 8 of the 12 calls, show evidence through participation or documentation of using the tools with real practice clients, and pass the final exam test with a score of 80% or better, you will be issued a Certification as a Mental Toughness Trainer. You will be licensed to use the term “Mental Toughness Trainer” in your outreach, marketing, print materials, etc. You will be able to use the Mental Toughness Trainer logo and certification badge on your website and printed marketing materials. You will be listed on the Mental Toughness Trainer site as an additional promotion for your services and issued a Trainer Certification number.

Special Note

The thing I am most grateful about in doing this work is in the personal development I gained for myself. Quite often, you will find yourself working on issues with your clients that you must work on for yourself. You literally ARE working on yourself as you are guiding your client to their wholeness and integrity…especially if you work with kids.

I became more and more fearless by teaching clients how to be fearless. I cleared my unconscious interference patterns when I guided my clients to do so. I became more confident and fearless as I watched my client’s confidence shift before my own eyes.
