FEAR–TAME THE BEAST A 7-week workbook and video program for gymnastics and tumbling by Alison Arnold Ph.D.

Dr. Alison Arnold (Doc Ali) has spent the last 24 years developing realistic tools to defeat fear.

She has worked with thousands of athletes performing at a scholarship level and has enabled 11 NCAA teams to achieve peak performance.

“Dr. Alison Arnold and HeadGames have been working with my elite athletes for over 15 years and has based her teachings on the truths that she shares in her workbooks and WebCamp. She and her lessons have been like an assistant coach, encouraging us daily to maximize our unique abilities and to shine bright in our sport. Her work will help you become all that you were created to be. Many thanks for assisting so many gymnasts to find their dreams and go after them.” –Mary Lee Tracy 

“Since some of my athletes had been going individually to Dr. Ali for some time and coming back to practices displaying the benefits of their collaboration, my gym decided to partake in team Skype sessions with Dr. Ali. Our weekly meetings became some of the most productive times out of all the rotations! As we progressed through the weekly mental workouts, there was an increased sense of attention and emotional regulation, and a more supportive, goal-oriented environment. Thank you HeadGames, for all your help!” – Gym owner

“My gym started working with Doc Ali and HeadGames around four years ago. At that time we had several fears and were not competing the way I knew we could. Through Skype sessions, we were able to give the girls what they needed to not only work through their fears, but even go further! We also took first in state as icing on the cake! Love the Skype sessions!” – April, coach

“I absolutely cannot say enough good things about Doc Ali, her team, her Skype sessions, WebCamp, and her book, Scream and Run Naked. As a former gymnast, I relied on her invaluable techniques in numerous instances, such as trying to find my love of gymnastics again, to recovering from multiple injuries and surgeries, and dealing with coach conflict that greatly affected me mentally in the gym. Today, I am lucky enough to be interning with her and couldn’t be more fortunate to have a true inspiration as a mentor. Her book and grace still push me to be my best, even in life after sports.” – Emily Murphy
