"In my 40+ years of being a leader in the NBA for the Orlando Magic and Philadelphia 76er's, I know what kind of talent and hard work it takes to consistently perform at the highest level.  Step Up Your Game does one of the best jobs at laying out a blueprint any athlete of any walk of life, any sport and most importantly at any level can use to raise their game. I highly recommend this read to all those who aspire to step up their game!"

Pat Williams, Orlando Magic, Senior Vice President, Author of HUMILITY


“I know that it takes a village to raise an athlete. Athletes need coaches, mentors, trainers, therapists, psychologists, and others for guidance and support. Step Up Your Game emphasizes the importance of the ‘entourage’ approach to training and helps get athletes ready for the starting line.”

-Gwen Jorgensen, Gold Medal Olympic Triathlete, 2016 Summer Olympics, two-time ITU World Champion
