An exercise performance consulting session includes helping individuals begin, reach peak performance, and maintaining peak performance.  Exercise is a difficult task for any individual to do with a job and other tasks to do in life.  Performance enhancement skills used in sport psychology are also used in performance psychology to help individuals begin, maintain, and perform at their peak in exercise.  This includes accomplishing their goals related to health and exercise.  Individuals participate in exercise for a variety of reasons such as to lose weight, to gain muscle, or to maintain weight. 

Driven To Peak Consulting offers one on one private individual performance consulting sessions.  Performance consulting sessions are also offered in groups.

What Is Exercise Performance Consulting?

What is an exercise performance consulting session like for an individual working with a performance enhancement consultant to start, maintain participation, and reach peak performance in exercise?  Below provides more detail information on an exercise performance consulting session.

Psychological Skills Improves Exercise Performance

Mental Side of Exercise Performance

exercise performance consulting focuses on building a strong mind to help individuals start, stick with, improve, and reach their peak performance in exercise

Individuals often neglect the mental aspect of performance.  Fitness professionals such as a personal trainer focuses on the physical side of exercise by helping individuals build a strong body.  Exercise performance consulting focuses on helping individuals with the mental side of exercise performance.  To help with the mental side of exercise performance, a performance enhancement consultant offers to help individuals learn psychological skills in working together with him or her.  Some examples of psychological skills include strategies to build confidence, strategies to build motivation, self-talk, goal-setting, and forming a routine.  These psychological skills also known as mental skills help individuals build a strong mindset to help them start, stick with, and improve their exercise performance.

Exercise performance consulting helps everyone in the area of exercise and not only those individuals who participate in competitions. 

The first session includes gathering information on exercising or physical activity done in the past.  We introduce performance enhancement skills to the exerciser to improve his or her performance. We also establish a plan for future sessions to address issues that prevent an exerciser from starting, resuming, maintaining, or performing at their peak.  The plan also includes exercises and physical activity planned ahead of time to work around potential obstacles that prevent an individual from doing exercise. 

Every session following the first session focuses on the progress that an exerciser has made in using performance enhancement skills to improve his or her performance and working with the exerciser on any other performance issues that have come up.

The topics frequently covered during a session include starting exercise, maintaining exercise, peak performance, goal-setting, motivation, and routines.  Other topics include strategies against negative self-talk, overtraining, injury prevention/recovery, and burnout prevention/recovery.
