Tom Glavine, National League Cy Young Award Winner, 1991 and 1998: "As a professional athlete, I'm always looking for an edge—especially a mental edge—and Jack Llewellyn's program has helped me greatly in that area. Jack's program helped with me deal with adversity, make the necessary adjustments and recover. Jack has been a huge help with the mental side of my game."
