James Van Riemsdyk

“After deciding about a year ago 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.”

“Training the breath with Harvey Martin and The MindStrong Project has been a major component to my growth the last couple years. Understanding more of what the breathe does to our biology has opened many doors and helped me to continue tapping into my humanistic potential. The most exciting part is that I feel I am just getting started.”

“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.”
