“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” – Bruce Lee

BOOK TESTIMONIALS: Below are a few testimonials for The Power Within: Discovering the Path to Elite Goaltending:
“So many train on the ice, in the gym, and fuel their bodies, but so few train their mind. When you have the opportunity to meet someone who has what you want at the end of your journey, and they are wiling to open up and share their ideas, experience, and feelings, it’s an opportunity you should never pass up. Having two people like Mike and Justin provide unprecedented access to the minds of some of today’s greatest goaltenders, you know it’s going to be something special. I am looking forward to having all of the goaltenders that we work with gain access to this information. So few work on their minds, so few have access to mentors…now there is no excuse!” -Pasco Valana, Team British Columbia U-18
