Bryan PattersonDirector of Squash CitySquash
Alex’s Sports Psychology lecture to our CitySquash students was very informative, interactive,and fun. It left the students with an understanding of what is needed to become a better player and how to deal with the intensity of the moment and the game. I would wholeheartedly recommend Alex to anyone who is extremely interested in improving the mental side to Squash and other sports.

I have worked with Alex for the last 2 years and he has helped me personally develop as a coach and also has helped me with the players in work with. You can always tell someone who is working with Alex as the player will be more focused on court and able to deal with the stresses on and off the court that players have to deal with. I cannot thank him enough for how he assists my players.
Robert TScratch Golfer Eastchester, NY
Dr. Diaz has helped me change the way I approach life through golf. I have learned how important it is to have a plan in life but with no expectations. I am more aware of where negative thoughts are coming from and am able to push through and focus on the present. My golf game has improved dramatically and so has my life as a whole.
