"I’ve competed with world-class athletes and a handful of Navy SEALs, a group of insanely gifted and driven individuals, but Don Mann is more than a SEAL with an illustrious military background. The way through which he approaches life and inspires people in sports, business, and in all walks of life, is quite remarkable." — Mike Kloser, 4x World Champion Adventure Racer & World Mountain Bike Champion

"I have known and trained with Don Mann since 2005. As a doctor, prior Navy, and a professional strength coach, I can honestly say I’ve learned my most important life skills for overcoming adversity from Don and his combat mindset/no boundaries training. It helped me to be a better business owner, doctor, husband, and man." — Dr. Stephen M. Erle, President, Integrative Regional Medical Center

"Every leader who’s ever set “stretch” goals for their team or themselves knows the first obstacle they have to overcome: self-doubt that the “unattainable” goal is really that. But Don Mann’s life is example after example that the right mindset, and the right focus on achieving micro goals to get to macro one, can make the impossible real, again and again." — Vincent Valvo, CEO, American Business Media
