Why knowing your Athlete Type™ is important

We have the big data science that will help you make small changes to improve performance. More than 30,000 elite athletes have taken the TAP assessment over the years creating the richest database of this kind on the planet.  A deep statistical analysis of the TAP database based on the actual answers by these elite athletes revealed eight (8) distinct Athlete Types™ (more than personality), each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and how they can be coached to help each type maximize their potential.
