"I can't think of a more motivational coach than Max! The one thing that separates him from other coaches is his ability to tap into the athletes psyche. As a professional athlete I still use "Max Moments" to elevate my game! At the top, the margin of difference is very small and one thing that has given me an edge is my ability to mentally adapt."

-Lynn Williams

Professional Athlete, US Soccer Women's National Team

"Max truly changed my perspective on football and life. He made me realize that my goals were achievable and gave me the confidence to reach them. I saw an immediate shift in my life and in my sport when I started working with Max. If you want to achieve greatness and successfully follow your dreams, Max is the guy you need to see!"

"Max is one of those people in life that you must surround yourself with because he makes you better! The talks he gave to our women's swimming and diving team were unbelievable and they began competing for something bigger than themselves. There is no doubt that Max was a huge part of our programs largest improvement in school history and highest placing at conference in 11 years! Thank you Max!"

-Joe Spahn

"I don't know if I would be where I am today if it was not for Max. To say he changed my life would be an accurate statement. Anyone who is lucky enough to cross paths with Max will be forever changed...because I was!"

-Michelle Maemone

"Max brings energy and enthusiasm that is unbelievably contagious. I have had the pleasure of watching him interact with two very different teams on two separate occasions, and he has an innate ability to reach all athletes with his passion and kindness. He gets them to buy into one another, the team culture, and their own love and drive for their sports. I cannot wait to work with him again and watch as he becomes the catalyst to a whole new wave of positivity and energy during our competitive season!"

-Kami Ward

Notre Dame High School Volleyball Head Coach

"Working with Max has helped me both on and off the field. His knowledge helped me to continue to grow as a player. His approach also gave me a different perspective on life and played a big part in helping me get through setbacks throughout my career. Max's positive energy has had a massive impact on me"

-Hailey Harbison

Professional Athlete

"At GPS Reading, we were extremely pleased with the presentation that was delivered by Max Rooke in January.

We have a group of 16 to 19 year old footballers who are striving to play at a high standard or/and go on to further education and employment. Our coaching staff re-iterate the importance of attitude, desire and enthusiasm as an individual and the importance of creating an environment to aid a winning mentality. Max's delivery of the 2 hour seminar brought all of this to life for our students. All of our students and coaches have felt fully empowered by Max's words, demonstrations and video clips. Its been a talking point and something our coaches can refer back to when our students are feeling low, lacking enthusiasm or letting standards drop.

We're grateful to Max and welcome him to all of our GPS UK sites."

-Ashley Baynham

"I have worked with Max over the past few years while working at Pepperdine Volleyball Camps and at Pierce College. Over the past three years I have seen unbelievable personal growth with my student athletes on and off the court after Max works with them. He has helped establish an amazing foundation for our program and how to measure success athletically, academically and in life. There are no little things when it comes to mentoring young athletes and Max is amazing when it comes to understanding that!!

-Lance Walker

Head Mens Volleyball Coach, Pierce Community College

"Since meeting and working with Max my confidence has boosted on and off the field, and I have gained a closer relationship with God.

I feel more equipped to compete to the best of my abilities as a professional athlete."

-Trey Mitchell

"Max is one of the most gifted, high character, and dynamic motivational speakers I have encountered. He delivers his message with tremendous passion, energy and authenticity; and better yet he lives his message every day. Max talked to our staff in an incredibly effective way that was extremely beneficial in helping reafirm the culture I am trying to create."

- Kim Pate
