2nd EDITION - FEBRUARY 2016 WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT KILLER ATHLETES! “Amazing book. As a sports chiropractor, acupuncturist and pediatric fellow who works with elite athletes, this is a MUST READ. By far the best book written on this subject I have read. I will be recommending it to every athlete, coach, parent I know. Very easy read and applicable not only to athletics but to life in general.” “Competitive sports engage athletes to improve discipline, health, and physical skill while keeping focused on the proper fundamentals of the game or activity. This book helps understand the mindset and training of our elite military and how that training process can directly correlate and inspire athletes to train for competitive performance.” “Years of hard won lessons on how to excel in sports (and life) condensed down in one book. The difference between truly elite athletes and the next tier down is far more mental than physical. This guide is great at preparing the young athlete for gaining that critical edge over the competition. A recommended read for those looking to realize their full athletic potential!” “I enjoyed "Killer Athletes" but the real win was the way it was received by my son. As a former college athlete and U.S. Marine I loved how Cole described the difference between the mind and the brain and which one needs to be in control.” Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, Air Force Pararescuemen and members of other Special Operations Forces are renowned for their mental and physical toughness. These qualities are also essential for high achievement in the world of competitive sports.
