"I only wish I would have had this education when I was younger. Of all the 'motivational speakers' I have heard over my career, they do not compete with the process of AST content."
"Having this education strengthened my confidence not only as a professional football player but also as a husband and father."
"Jim, thank you for being a part of this important project. We need you....
Seattle Seahawks Head Coach
"There is no doubt that the AST program has made me a better coach. I am a more positive coach that coaches up, not down!"
“With all the challenges of being a professional football player, it's not just about how you perform on game-day. It how you compete every day. AST gave me the tools to compete at an even higher level!”
“Throughout my professional soccer career, I was exposed to a lot of information about mental toughness. Never have I seen it all brought together so well as Advance Sports Technology.”
"The confidence boost Shae received from AST was incredible. It gave her the belief that "anything is possible" if you focus and believe you can."
"When I was first exposed to AST and Jim Madrid, I was at the Seattle Sounders Academy. At that time, I was not the picture-perfect student-athlete that I wanted to be. I had below-average grades, I was in a dry spell with my sport, and above all, I didn’t believe in myself. With the teachings and guidance of the AST program, I was able to finish in the top 25% of my high school graduating class, get a full ride to Division 1 college, and excel in achieving whatever goal I set my mind to. They gave me the tools to find my own purpose and my own drive and he showed me how to approach adversity in a positive light. I am now enrolled for my Masters. The tools and teachings AST and Madrid shared with me are things that I still practice to this day religiously. It changed my life."
“AST helped me get through a lot in college. AST played a huge role in me finding myself after the loss of my father, having knee surgery, and trying to recover from it all while playing division 1 college soccer. I owe a lot to AST, as I often reflect back on their lessons to regain control of one’s emotions and how to still be just as effective in high-pressure moments.
A GREAT PROGRAM! I Love Jim Madrid and AST and everything they teach. It’s not clinical. It’s practical!”
"I was so blessed to have the opportunity to work with AST Jim Madrid and Chad Busick. We here at Paradise High School had the worst fire in California history that took everything from our community and where left with a huge hole in our hearts. We were feeling lost and missing something we couldn't replace, but the AST team made it their mission to help us find a way to look at the positive. They helped us realize through every adversity we have an opportunity to connect and that connection helped us grow. We will never be able to repay the kindness they gave us, but we pay it forward with the connections we make.
