It all started when Gregg was a young lad competing in southern California in tennis tournaments.He realized then that the best players had a handle on their emotions and could rebound from bad breaks. However, the ones who played their worst did not have enough emotional control.
From that realization, he went on to study performance psychology at U.C. Santa Barbara and then went to Florida State University for his masters and University of Florida for his doctorate in human performance. Dr. Gregg has studied human performance for the past 30 years as well as been the mental game coach for many professional tennis players with their mental game as well as the Vanderbilt Men’s Tennis team who went to the finals of the NCAA Championships.
