Testimonials 

“After deciding that the effects of breath work was something I wanted to pursue, I’ve been able to incorporate it into my routine and have seen great improvements physically and mentally because of this “tool”. Working with Harvey has built a foundation of confidence within my performance, recovery and mindset. I’ve been able to use different protocols in and out of season that have given me an even greater understanding of the benefit of “the breath”. From working on controlling my breath in the sauna, cold tubs or in the weight room I’ve been able to carry all these experiences onto the ice.”

James Van Riemsdyk

NHL All-Star

“Traditional mental skills approaches utilize words and thoughts to guide mental processes, The MindStrong Project is unique because they have a strong grasp of the physiology that leads to improved mental processes. As a former athlete I would’ve appreciated a process like theirs because it is more tangible and something that every athlete is very familiar with. They have been able to take principles and practices that have been around for centuries and communicate them seamlessly to a modern audience. On top of their passion for bringing quality information, they have all lived the life first hand as professional athletes themselves and can understand the difficulty with which these practices are implemented during a long season.”

Rachel Balkovec

“In the most simple, yet significant ways, MindStrong offers the tools to improve; in your performance, your goals, in your pursuit of personal growth, in your perspective on how you attack your day to day life. MindStrong pushes you past your potential with both hands.”

Brian Peters

NFL Linebacker

“The Mind Strong Project has been a huge part of our mental & performance training within our Ohio State pitching staff. A large part of the game of baseball is the mental side, and the breathing concepts we were introduced to dramatically improved our performance on the field. The Fire & Ice training is a personal favorite of mine that you need to experience to fully understand. It helps to form an understanding of how powerful our body and minds are, especially under stress. I believe every athlete should internally understand themselves and how to maximize their individual performance. The MindStrong Project does an unbelievable job of unpacking this.”

Dan DeLucia 

Ohio State Baseball Pitching Coach 

“MindStrong project is a great resource for anyone of all ages to help them develop into not just a better athlete but a better human. The ability to discover what we are capable of lies within our own mind. Harv and the team at MindStrong really try to get the most out of each individual. In my experience working with Harv, he has challenged me and really helped me to rethink how I think and how I go about my routines and training systems. Our potential is up to us. What we do in our everyday lives to develop those routines and systems ultimately leads to who you are as an athlete and as a human.”

“The MindStrong team has given me the tools to delve deeper into my experience as a performer and as a human. Over the past year working with Harvey my abilities to manage stress, manage my breath, access flow state, maximize sleep, and move better have improved drastically.  Harvey is as knowledgeable and committed as it gets when it comes to teaching the art of human performance.  His unique ability to build protocols and daily practices that foster awareness and enhance everyday experiences is what makes him so special at what he does.  Simply put, Harvey teaches the lifestyle and habits that all individuals should be aware of when embarking on a path of sustained peak performance. MindStrong is an absolute must for anyone looking to gain a massive edge in human performance.”

"The MindStrong Project and Harvey Martin have opened my eyes to a whole new world of training. By training through environmental stressors of the sauna and ice, I have physically been able to recover quicker and much more efficiently. Mentally, the toll heat and ice puts on the mind which cannot be replicated any other way. Controlling one’s mind during this time of stress is crucial… which in turn prepares myself for stressful times on the mound.  Also, performing breath work with Harvey has mentally and physically taxed my body in ways that it hasn’t been before.  Through this, I have gained a better understanding of my body’s limits and how I can train to push the limits further.  The breath work also gives me an outlet in times of stress.. “When all else fails, turn to the breath.” – Coach Mart. By simply focusing on the breath, I am able to adjust away from the task at hand and calm the mind. Overall, being able to perform at one’s highest day in and day out is imperative in any profession. Chasing the edges of training in environmental stressors and breath work has not only allowed me to perform at my highest as a pitcher, but also be an overall better performing human."

“A weekend with the MindStrong boys made me a believer in performance breathing and meditation. They really do work and I’ve experienced it first-hand. These guys push the envelope and they can do it for you too.”

Ibraheim Campbell

“A lot of people say athletes make great sales people, and it is true to a degree! The piece missing is, do sales people really “train” to be better like athletes? I do! Harvey has been instrumental to my sales success through providing me with tools and techniques specific to my sales role. Putting together a program inclusive of breathing tips to help during presentations, meditation methods to help during stressful sales quarters, and biweekly conversations to help me open my creativity. Big time stuff coming from Harvey/MSP!!”

Nick Addison

“Harvey Martin’s MindStrong program is a deeper look into how the mind is the most power muscle in the human body and how it can be trained to be the most powerful! Harvey’s Diamond Series takes a holistic approach to creating the reasons why an athlete pursues the daily grind and develop the edge to be great. A strong mind is the foundation that will help you develop your core beliefs and principles. Any team or organization can benefit from the Mind Strong program and enhance the most under developed tool that everyone has…the brain!” #chaseedges

Assistant Pitching Coordinator Philadelphia Phillies (MLB) 

“When I joined the United States Air Force I showed up on the first day, they shaved my head, took away my name and told me to get ready for hell on earth for the next six weeks. During the next six weeks I faced weeks where I would be lucky to get 4 hours of sleep a night. And was demanded to perform physical punishment for hours everyday without regard for my personal wellness. Throughout this process, I realized that I couldn’t control almost everything that was going on around me. But the one thing I could always control was my breath. Thanks to the Mindstrong Project and the lessons that I learned from Harvey Martin through the years I learned that there were really only two things that I could control: my breath and my attitude. When other began giving up and quitting I began to lead among my peers. Through breath work I was able to go without sleep and still feel energized and attentive throughout the day. After getting teargassed when other cadets were on the ground grasping for air, I was able to stand tall and regain my breath and heart rate almost instantly. I am forever grateful for the lessons I’ve learned from the Mindstrong Project and I cannot wait to continue my journey in learning how to control the controllables.”

“It’s hard to put into words how Mindstrong impacted our players and coaches. The way they bring a physical approach to sports psychology and physiology allowed us to grow as players and give us an awareness to having a positive mindset and breath work! They helped enhance our culture as a team and personally gave me tools to become a better coach! The best part is the MindStong team is all just great guys that want the best for others! We look forward to working with them in the future.”

Andrew Woitas
