Hi there! I’m Dr. Alison Arnold, the gym world calls me Doc Ali. I spent my entire life as a J.O gymnast ultimately earning a full-ride scholarship to the University of Oregon. Dealing with my own mind as a gymnast has helped me give the gift of mental toughness to other gymnasts all over the world.
I have been the Peak Performance Consultant to USA Women’s Gymnastics since 1997. I have also worked with US Figure Skating, Australia’s Ski Team, The Boeing Company, American Express, and over 15 NCAA teams. I have trained the minds of athletes all over the world, helping them become more courageous, relentless, and inspired. I have had the honor of working with Olympic Champions, NCAA Champions, and thousands of other athletes chasing a dream. I am the author of The Athlete Warrior: Advanced Mental Training for the Advanced Athlete, FEAR-Tame the Beast, and The Leadership Warrior A-Z. I am the creator of Headgames Web Camp, the first on-line mental toughness training program for athletes. I was always motivated by Eastern philosophy and spent 12 weeks studying the mind with the Masters in Nepal, 4 weeks in a Thai forest monastery, 3 weeks in the Amazon jungle in Peru, 2 weeks in silence integrating it all, and still made it back to tell about it. I currently continue to work on taming my own monkey-mind while living big with my husband, Jesse and son, Max.
I’m so excited to join the amazing staff of Precision. Being able to achieve your goals as a gymnast takes physical and mental training. I’m glad to fill this niche for Precision by helping your athlete be the best they can be and work through any type of fear, self doubt, anxiety, or confidence issue. Training their minds as well as their bodies and will help them shine bright on the gym floor!
