Testimonials

“Jackie is the complete package. With a background in high performance sport and physiotherapy plus her bubbly personality, Kingston is lucky to have this mental training expert in our community. Figure skating, like many sports, is at least 90% mental. Jackie enables my athletes to have a distinct advantage over their competitors. Jackie’s approach is innovative, her presentations are professional, and most of all, her seminars are fun for athletes of all ages and abilities.”

Sharon Nixon, National High Performance Coach, Kingston Skating Academy


“Jackie was relatable, enthusiastic and helped me gain self-confidence. She always made me feel comfortable and I was able to use her strategies at home, practice and competition to help me achieve my goals. I always left her sessions feeling determined and happy.”

“The sessions with Jackie are really, really helping in more ways than one. My son mentioned yesterday that he does not know how he would have been able to attend his important swim meet without her help! Thank you again for all your expertise, time and care.”

“Went to see Jackie Bardana, a strength training consultant for the mind (www.forzaconsulting.ca). Certainly was worth it as Addison has now been given some tools to help her in gymnastics. She is now able to vault without spot where before she couldn’t even run up to it. And she did a round-off double back handspring last night all by herself!!! Before this, she couldn’t get herself to even jump to do a back handspring. Addy now does visualization on her way to gymnastics, breathing techniques before she does a skill and uses positive self words! A lot some adults need to learn. Well-worth the money to see my girl happy again and excited and wanting to push herself! Confident and happy! Thank you Jackie for all your help and great attitude!”

“Thank you Jackie, for your time with Avery. You have such positive energy, and Avery really listens to you. I am seeing the results, and it is so nice to have her over this hump and practicing her piano with joy once again. The skills you have taught her will stay with her for life and help her cope with life’s challenges.”

Parent of a Pianist; Avery, age 15


“As a parent I could see the frustration my son was having and how it was affecting his success on the field. After sessions with Jackie, I saw an immense change in my son on and off the field. I honestly can’t say enough about how much she’s helped him. Jackie is awesome, and I think athletes in all sports could benefit from her expertise.”
