HERE’S WHY GYMNASTS LOVE OUR PROGRAM
GYMNASTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS AND GET THEIR NEW SKILLS.
BUT THEY ALSO LOVE THE PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION THEY EXPERIENCE.
“I loved it! They were very helpful both in and out of school and gave me lots of key tips and tricks to help me with things I struggled with. Ever since I started seeing them weekly, you could see a difference in my gymnastics and confidence in the gym. I will for sure use them next year.”
“I really enjoyed how they helped to rationalize my thoughts. They helped me put all my worries into perspective and it made it so much easier to work through mental issues.”
“I really liked the 15-minute personal sessions because I feel like they helped a lot, but didn’t take up a huge chunk of your day.”
“Ali Berry was such an asset to me. She helped me so much and I still would feel very comfortable talking to her and having her help me with any problem. She is great at what she does.”
“Obviously, they really helped me when I was struggling in the gym, but even if I wasn’t struggling with something specific, meeting with someone every week really helped me stay focused on my goals for season and helped me with my mental health in general.”
“GMA helps tremendously with all thing’s gymnastics. I have benefited from this very much. For me personally they helped me through some of the hardest points in my life so far.”

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
Your gymnast wants to compete at the next level this season.
But she still has to get a few skills she is struggling with.
She wants it bad.
But she is also scared or frustrated.
And when you ask her why, she says she doesn’t know.
She knows she can do it. But for some reason, she just can’t go.
And sometimes you feel frustrated too because you don’t know how to help her through it.
You’ve done everything you can to set your gymnasts up for success.
But it feels like she is running out of time.
You love seeing the joy of each kid getting her new skills.
But you dread the part where your gymnasts get stuck.
And the more they get in their head and overthink, the worse it gets.
You hate telling her she can’t compete, because she is so close and you know she can do it.
But you are out of ideas and time and you just don’t know what else to do to help them.
HERE’S WHY WE KNOW WE CAN HELP

Let’s help her get those skills she is struggling with.
So that she can go into meet season feeling totally prepared.
WE GET YOUR WORLD
MEET OUR COACHES
Gymnastics became Stacie’s passion at an early age, and she happily spent her childhood on into college in the gym, first as a gymnast and then as a coach. After college she went on to work in a non profit.
She began blogging to stay connected to gymnastics and became deeply involved in the elite gymnastics media world, connecting with many elite coaches, gymnasts and media in the process. Her time in the elite gymnastics world and especially her trip to Rio in 2016 ignited a passion to do whatever she could to help create avenues for more mental health and emotional support in the gymnastics community.
And so after becoming a life coach from a school based on cognitive behavioral tools, she wanted to bring those tools to every coach, gymnast and parent. For Stacie, there is nothing more satisfying than helping a gymnast reach her dreams, while teaching her the mental and emotional health tools that will help her the rest of her life.
Ali was an All-American, an Academic All-American, and on the National Championship gymnastics team in 2015 at UWL. She went on to be the assistant coach, recruiting coordinator, and Jr. Eagle Gymnastics Director. She has worked in Strength and Conditioning with a variety of sports at the University of Denver, Southern Utah University, and University of Wisconsin- La Crosse. She currently coaches levels 8-10 at Champions Gymnastics.
Ali also has a bachelors degree in Exercise & Sports Science and a masters in Human Performance- Applied Sports Science. She is also a CSCS (certified strength and conditioning specialist) with the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Alis first became exposed to the tools and techniques we teach as a coach. When she saw how these tools worked to help her head coach and her gymnasts as they went after a national championship she was blown away. But then it became personal.
Ali is also one of the army of women who is a Nassar survivor. She went through coaching to help with the mental and emotional struggles she was facing in her healing process, and saw her own life change and transform. And so she went on to become a certified life coach, with a passion to bring this freedom and transformation to any and all in the gymnastics community.
THIS IS WHAT YOUR GYMNAST NEEDS
FOR A SUCCESSFUL SEASON NEXT YEAR
HERE’S WHAT YOUR GYMNAST NEEDS
TO GET THAT SKILL SHE NEEDS
WHAT’S INSIDE THE PROGRAM
SET YOUR GOAL
The first step is to have your gymnast take ownership of her skill. We will help your gymnast make a choice and decide what she wants to do and by when.
SECRET TO SUCCESSFUL UPGRADES
Learning how to do something new is a process. We will teach your gymnast the process that she can use again any time she has to learn something new.
FIND THE REAL CAUSE OF YOUR FEAR
Your gymnast thinks her fear comes from the skill she is learning. But that really isn’t it. We will help her understand her brain and find the cause of her fear.
FACE YOUR FEARS OF NEW SKILLS
Most gymnasts try to avoid their fear. But that is not the way to successfully getting new skills. We will help your gymnast learn to overcome her fears.
ANSWER YOUR FEARS
When your gymnast hides from her fears and tries to avoid them, they take on a life of their own and become scarier. Looking at the fears and answering them helps your gymnast feel in control and makes the fear much easier to deal with.
MAKE UPGRADING EASY
Your gymnast doesn’t know how to create the motivation, determination and focus she needs to get her new skills. She is trying to use willpower and white knuckle it. We will teach her to create the fuel she needs.
KEEPING AT IT WHEN IT’S HARD
It would be great if getting a new skill was a one and done event. And sometimes it is. But usually it takes time, and during that time your gymnast will experience the discomfort of courage and bravery. We will teach her how to keep at it.
CELEBRATE YOUR SUCCESS
And in the end we celebrate! We will teach your gymnast to go out with a bang and celebrate the success she has achieved. But also, we will teach your gymnast the importance of celebrating each small victory along the way.

ARE YOU HESITATING
BECAUSE OF WHAT YOUR GYMNASTS COACH OR PARENT MIGHT THINK?
The biggest mistake that many gymnastics parents make is thinking that their gymnast should get everything she needs to be successful in gymnastics from her gym alone.
Even if your coaches have specific training in mental health tools, they simply don’t have extended time out on the floor to spend with each gymnast working through their fears and mental blocks.
And many gymnasts feel intimidated to share their fears with their coaches – even when they have awesome compassionate coaches!
CHECKING IN WITH YOUR COACH
While many parents sign their gymnasts up for our program on their own, we know sometimes you feel hesitant about what your gymnast’s coach might think. Most coaches will love that you want to proactively help your gymnast, and sending them to a mindset coach is pretty normal in the gymnastics world. Check out what one of our coaches had to say.
Here is a quick message you might send your coach.
I found this program that I would like to sign my child up for, but I wanted to check in with you and get your opinion first. Would you take a look and let me know? Here’s the link.
“I think every gymnast should have the opportunity to go to a mindset coach. It takes one thing off my own plate and provides an expert to help them for 15 minutes, and it’s like night and day when they come back into the gym. They just needed an outside source where they can let their guard down with someone who isn’t their coach. As a coach that just takes one responsibilty off of us and allows us to flourish as a team.”
A huge mistake gymnastics coaches make is trying to be all things to your gymnasts – gymnastics coach, strength and conditioning coach, dance instructor, mindset coach, nutrionist, hair dresser… but it is just not possible.
Even if you have the training and tools to coach your athletes on their mindset, you simply don’t have the time to spend out on the floor.
And oftentimes, even if you are a kind, compassionate coach, your gymnasts are intimidated to talk to you about their fears.
Coach Kasey recently told us, “You have to have some humility to say I don’t have to be the one that always has the answer. Or maybe you do have the answer, but sometimes your gymnast can’t hear it from you.”
Check out what else collegiate coach Kasey has to say to coaches about our mindset training.
GETTING YOUR PARENTS ON BOARD
Many coaches feel reticent to ask their parents to do one more thing. But often, those parents are watching their child struggle to get her knew skills and just want to know how they can help her. Check out what one of our level 7 parents had to say.
Here is a quick message you might send your parents.
I found this program that I think will really help your child. I want to do as much as we can to set her up for success next year, and I think mindset training will be hugely beneficial. Check out this virtual mindset summer camp and let me know what you think. Here’s the link.
“We initially thought, oh gosh, another thing we have to get her on to do, we really didn’t know how important it was. But our daughter absolutely finds it so helpful! It really has made an impact on her and I have learned that gymnastics is a sport that requires a lot of mental preperation and support… this program gives them the tools to be successful physically and mentally. And it is really helpful for parents too. I have learned so much listening in on her lessons”
WE HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOU
PARENTS AND COACHES WE HAVE YOUR BACK
BONUS #1 for Parents
As a parent, it can be hard to know how to support your gymnast when they are dealing with fear and frustration. You aren’t sure what to say or how to encourage them. And it can be so easy to get used to their amazing abilities, it can sometimes be hard to understand their fears.
That’s why as an added bonus we are providing a space in our app where you can ask questions, connect with other gym parents and get updates from our coaches as we take them through the week in the private parents portal section of our app.
BONUS #2 for Coaches
As a coach, we know you want to be in the loop when your gymnasts are getting coaching from another source. While you don’t have the time out on the floor to deeply address the mental and emotional side of life, you also don’t want to be in the dark to what your gymnasts are being taught.
That’s why as an added bonus we are providing a space in our app where you can ask questions, connect with other coaches and get updates from our coaches as we take them through the week in the private parents portal section of our app. Stay in the loop and in the know.
BUT WHAT ABOUT WHEN MY GYMNAST IS IN THE GYM?
WE ARE HERE FOR THEM IN THE MOMENT
BONUS #3 for Gymnasts
Sometimes the fear just seems to take over, and it is hard to know what to do in the moment. You just need something quick to get mastery over your fear instead of letting it master you.
VOICE GUIDED FEAR BUSTING EXERCISES
That’s why as an added bonus we are providing voice guided fear busting activities you can easily do anywhere. Take these along with you and practice them on the way to gym. Or ask your coach for a quick time out to go do a guided exercise – so you can come back ready to tackle your skill.
ULTIMATE UPGRADES BONUS #4 for Gymnasts
Sometimes your gymnast needs some help!
COACHING WHEN SHE NEEDS IT MOST
That’s why as an added bonus we are providing access to our coaches. We will have a space in our app where your gymnast can message in her question or struggle as she is having it.
We will answer her in the chat and help her asap. Just let her coach know that she has mindset support in her pocket and that she OR the coach can jump in the chat and get support when she needs it.
ULTIMATE UPGRADES BONUS #5 for Gymnasts
Sometimes mental blocks come because your gymnast doesn’t have the energy she needs for those long practices.
COACHING WHEN SHE NEEDS IT MOST
That’s why as an added bonus we are providing access to our special guest, Registered Dietician and gymnastics nutritionist, Kerry Bair. In this bonus, Kerry shares how help gymnasts fuel their bodies, prevent injuries, and reach their highest potential.
THE MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
That Lets You Sleep Easily At Night!
It’s hard enough to commit yourself to something, know it you will do it and know if it will help. We know it is even harder to do the same for someone else, especially a kid. So we want to make it simple for you.
LET YOUR GYMNAST DECIDE FOR HERSELF AFTER THE FIRST LESSON
If your gymnast completes the first lesson and decides it is just not for her, request a full refund, no questions asked. Just email email@example.com.
GET RESULTS OR GET YOUR MONEY BACK
We absolutely know if she does the work, it will work. And our job is to make it so that she WANTS to do the work! Your only job is to help her get to the lessons… we will do the rest. If she does all the lessons and worksheets, yet still does not make progress toward her chosen upgrade, request a full refund. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org within within 90 days of completing the course.
WE KNOW YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING
Can my gymnast really get a new skill through video training?
By this point, these are most likely skills your gymnast is physically ready to do, just not mentally and emotionally ready.
It is astonishing, even to us, how FAST kids pick up these mental and emotional tools and how immediately they are able to apply them.
The reality is, that GETTING the skill happens very quickly. Gymnasts just put off the getting it for days, weeks and months because they are scared. So it seems like it takes a long time.
We give them the tools they need to get over the hump.
She's got a full schedule. How much time will this take?
We know your world well. We have worked to craft just the right length for coaching sessions, training videos and worksheets. Enough to be powerful and make a difference. But also laser focused and short enough to fit between practice and the rest of life.
Getting my gymnast to do more homework sounds, well, terrible.
The reality is, your gymnast doesn’t care about school near as much as she cares about gymnastics. If she WANTS to get her skill and compete at the next level, she’s usually willing to do A LOT to get it.
I have another question.
