Performance in Mind specialises in working with age group and amateur athletes who are training for endurance races. To date we have worked with athletes training to qualify for the Ironman World Championships, athletes taking on their first Ultra running races and those just starting out with their first marathons and triathlons. Whatever your sport, whatever your distance, psychological skills can ensure you train effectively to maximise your potential and perform to your best in your event.
Athletes who have used Performance in Mind say:
“I wanted to drop you a line now I’ve got my head around the race a bit more and say a huge thank you. Both for your support on the day which meant so much and all your guidance in the build up. I found I called on a number of different things we worked on throughout the race; from visualisation helping me to be comfortable running at night, relaxation techniques when things didn’t go as well and planning for different situations that arose and how I could respond to them positively. It made such a difference to my race experience.”
“I am now able to use things I already know to help build my confidence and a positive attitude, instead of always relying on others. I am able to stay more focused in a race and am able to focus on specific, achievable smaller targets. I am able to approach things that I was nervous about with more confidence and armed with new ways to approach them and I have better, more useful, strategies in place for dealing with areas of my sport that make me nervous or I feel I am not as good at.”
