Here it is!

Your Benefit

The seminar is exactly the approach where all the threads come together, where our movements are controlled, where our feelings and thoughts arise that - always and in miliseconds- have a direct impact on our athletic performance and well-being. Your brain. Even sports medicins now see the brain as THE power-limiting factor in endurance. The good news: you can also train your "brain muscle". And that's exactly what we will do.

Whether you want to run faster, farther, or just more relaxed or increase your training motivation and well-being: this running psychology seminar will provide you with scintifically proven methods that you can directly apply in everyday life to help ease your personal goals faster and smarter.


You will benefit from extensive experience of coaching many athletes, from amateur to elite level. You will learn basic  mental training techniques and train their use in different situations. You experience running hypnosis: self-hypnosis techniques that allow you to include unconscious body processes and resources into training! There is no boring lecture style. You will practice, train and test the techniques in a relaxed atmosphere. Inside and outdoor. An excellent training camp for the mind, body and soul.
