Ashley Constantine, Top Ranked Tennis Player, Letter from her Father
After working with you, my daughter, Ashley is playing very well, with confidence,
intelligence and poise. As an example, she woke up this morning with a tender shoulder and
was hurting during warm-up. I thought that this would be a distraction and a problem for
her. I was wrong, she played through it and did not let it affect her play. She is very
proud of the outcome over these past weeks and on the way home talked alot about your
discussion with her last night. We are very happy for her . We are confident that she is
continuing to grow and enjoy her love of tennis. Thank you for your continued help, it has
made a wonderful difference for her. Dave

"Guaranteed Success", Dr. Deborah Potashnik from Washington, DC USA Are you a
marathon or recreational runner, a person concerned with general physical fitness, or a
competitive athlete? Perhaps you are an individual who pushes him/herself in order to feel
capable and strong in ALL areas of your life. If so, "Your Performing Edge - The
Complete Guide To Success And Fulfillment In Sports And Life," by JoAnn Dahlkoetter,
Ph.D. is written for you.
As a mental health practitioner and current trainer for my first marathon this Fall
(Marine Corp Marathon, Washington, DC), I know the importance of developing sound mental
strategies for successful running cannot be overstated. As a 53 year old non-runner, I
initially harbored some doubts about my ability to take on the physical challenges of a
marathon. Having completed over half of the training, I am now confident that I have the
physical strength to attain my goal. What I did not realize was that SUCCESSFUL running is
also very much a state of mind, and in order to achieve EXCELLENCE as a runner, one must
also acquire sound mental training skills. As luck would have it, I came across "Your
Performing Edge - The Complete Guide To Success And Fulfillment In Sports And Life,"
which I strongly recommend. Dr. Dahlkoetter, a former San Francisco Marathon winner and
trainer of numerous Olympic and professional athletes, has written the ultimate book on
optimal mind-body performance. I have used JoAnn's book as my Bible, and refer to it
frequently in my capacity as a physically active woman as well as for my personal growth.
It is easy to read, thorough and intelligent.
I am happy to say that, with Dr. Dahlkoetter's help, I have now developed the muscles of
BOTH my body and spirit, and am fully prepared for the "race of my life."
"JoAnn Dahlkoetter is an excellent person to work with - Highly recommended."
