HYPO2’s Focus Sessions are a mental performance training series that teach perspectives and practices to help athletes access their best within training, racing and recovery. Sessions include mental performance tips, illustrative stories, the science of performance psychology, and applicable strategies for performance optimization. Strategies include running-specific meditations, visualizations and more. These are the same sessions that are conducted in person with NAU Track and Field, and Northern Arizona Elite on a weekly basis.
Each spring and fall we offer 20 consecutive weeks of focus sessions. Each focus session is approximately 20 minutes in length, with additional time for questions at the end. Please note that each session is a lesson in and of itself (i.e., this is not a course that builds upon content from session to session). Therefore, athletes can view the sessions in any order and gain full benefit of the session regardless of whether or not they have attended prior sessions.
The next offering of weekly focus sessions will be conducted live, over Zoom, beginning in September of 2022. Registration will open in August and the cost is a flat fee of $100 for all 20 sessions.
