Ahmard Vital


Speaker, Author, Consultant, Teen Advocate

"Recently, I joined the SafeBeat Initiative efforts. It did not take me long to realize that this is an organization that I truly wanted to associate with. Knowing that kids across the country are dying due to issues with their hearts touched me in a way that I had not felt before. And then to know that there are testings that can be done to prevent this, I knew that I wanted to be involved. I have not only added this organization to the short list of groups I will contribute to, but I will encourage friends, family and colleagues to do the same. I want to be a part of the solution to saving kids' lives one young soul at a time."

Ahmard provides his audiences with the tools needed to achieve personal success, utilize willpower and determination, and develop strategies that will allow people of all ages to achieve personal and professional excellence.

After nearly a decade of studying the performance habits of high achieving athletes, Ahmard has developed programs of inspiration and motivation that are beneficial to individuals, professionals, companies and organizations worldwide.

In 2011, Ahmard published Awaken the Baller Within, which was quickly labeled as the “athlete’s life manual” by some pundits in sports media. This book was taught in more than a dozen colleges and close to 50 athletic departments and sports camps. To take the things to the next level, Ahmard earned the title of Certified Mental Coach in February 2013 through Extreme Focus, a program founded by Dave Austin and Roger Anthony. His teacher, Austin, has been, and continues working with major league baseball, professional football players and tennis pros. As a mental performance coach, Ahmard helped secure more than $6 million dollars in scholarship monies and worked with athletes at the Division I level and the National Football League.

As a national sports writer, Ahmard was a college football recruiting analyst for Scout Media/Fox Sports, with a focus on the University of Texas, Oklahoma and LSU. He was a staple on Fox’s High School Scoreboard Live as an expert on Texas prep football and featured on several national and local radio broadcasts including Yahoo Sports Radio and the Texas Sports Radio Network. Ahmard has written articles and been quoted in publications like the Houston Chronicle, Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and the Dallas Morning News.

Not long after a successful career as a college football recruiting analyst with Scout.com, a Fox Sports affiliate, Ahmard founded That Guy Media Group and expanded his platform to small business and nonprofit organizations where he focused on dream building, goal-setting, and a relentless pursuit of the aforementioned. By teaching his audiences to recognize their strengths, and capitalize on the power that everyone harnesses within, individuals can realize previously unimagined levels of personal happiness and success.

Ahmard is becoming one of the most sought-after motivational speakers in the world, working in countries like Zambia and Abu Dhabi (UAE). In the United States, he’s inspired professionals at companies like the Boys and Girls Club, MD Anderson Cancer Center and the Salvation Army. His college clients include Northeast Texas Community College, Prairie View A&M, Houston Community College and West Texas A&M.

He published his second book, I Am More Than Enough, in April 2019 to address many of his clients’ confidence challenges in their personal and professional lives. When Ahmard is not traveling, speaking or writing, he works as a humanitarian and teen ministry leader, volunteering his time to inspire youth to envision their futures beyond their challenges and circumstances. He is also an avid reader and fitness coach, teaching cycling classes in North Houston.
