What Coaches and Players are saying about the MACH 4® Mental Training System
Excellence with simplicity is the word that comes to mind when I devoured Dr. Anne Smith’s MACH 4 mental training. I have read Jim Loehr and many others and this is by far the best and most simple method ever. The bible of mental training, she addresses the process of development and not the destination. The educational range with customization for personality types with increased personal development and effectiveness with tennis the goal. I have personally seen increases in mental proficiency with increases in skill or drill level difficulty.
She has definitely met the challenge of increasing success and confidence by developing a training plan that works. The key is it works for every level of player & sport from beginner to advanced and that is the miracle and genius of her and Bev Raws System. The plan is simple mental proficiency, learning behavior & skills, experiment and practice, execution and follow-up with review. Why not mentally train while you are physically training? I have personally benefited and thank God for this revelation in mental training and personal development.

MACH 4 helps me to control my emotions and to concentrate on the court when I am playing. It has helped me to know when I need to raise my energy in matches and how to act like a champion. I have started to feel myself stronger on the court. MACH 4 has also helped me in my life. I am now nicer to the people who are around me.
