After successfully completing this course you will:

  • Understand the profound impact psychology has upon sports performance;
  • Understand the significance of a robust mindset, prior to and during competition;
  • Be in a position to effectively apply proven methods to your own competition routines.

I'm an elite athlete always looking for new, scientific, classes on mental training. This course from the IOC was a very pleasant find. They explain a lot of the same concepts in a new immersive teaching approach. Thank you!
