Just received this wonderful message from Abbey Ellis who has done an outstanding job working on her mental toughness !

“Mental toughness has become the discipline that keeps me on track…the driving force behind my decision not to quit whether that be at the end of a grueling race or a long practice. The results obtained from incorporating a mentally tough approach to my swimming are undeniable. I’ve swam faster, harder, stronger than I every would have conceived imaginable. With the help of Mrs. Joni, I have learned and am still learning to compete with a mental edge. Personally, this involves staying calm and loose, swimming with confidence, staying in my own lane, trusting myself to perform, and most importantly having fun!” -Abbey Ellis, Jacksonville, Florida
