Simple. Anyone working or interested in performance.

Described as ‘Pilates for the Mind’, it progressively strengthens your core knowledge and skills around how we think, the effects our feelings and emotions have on us and how, in turn, these affect how we behave. This course provides that elusive ‘glue’ that turns an average coach, aspiring leader or industry professional into a great one.

Specifically suited to:

Sports coaches, fitness professionals and personal trainers, those who work to support athletes and teams such as performance directors, physiotherapists, osteopaths and nutritionists and also athletes and performers transitioning out of sport and into new areas.

Prior knowledge is NOT required, and the material is suitable for grassroots and elite, beginners and experienced professionals and also ideal for those looking to add a sporting aspect to their existing NLP practices.

Your reasons will be unique to you, but if it helps, here's a few things people have said to us over the years ...
  • To gain practical knowledge to work with the mental aspects of sport
  • To help my athletes when they get down or feel nothing's going right
  • To find better ways to get my message across
  • To gain a competitive advantage in the jobs market
  • For promotion to new roles, requiring new 'people' skills
  • To manage the different personalities and emotions in my charges
  • To deal with pressure situations and competitive stress (me as well as my players)
  • I'm stuck in a rut and needed inspiration
  • To learn how to ‘manage up’ as well as managing my teams
  • Changing career paths and/or looking for a new challenge
  • I needed to improve my knowledge of the mental side of performance
  • Because ‘it’s interesting, stimulating and helps us think differently!

CPD Certificate Example

At Inside Performance we’ve been training the world’s best coaches, leaders and trainers for over 16 years, and we’ve taken their feedback, updated our know-how and knowledge and over the years we’ve cut bits out, added bits in and generally fine-tuned what we offer until we’ve ended up with what we think offers the most useful and stimulating material of its kind in the world!

So, biased we may be, but we didn’t get to work with the world’s best organisations and individuals for no reason … and this is why we developed this online NLP course – so we could make this knowledge and know-how available to anyone with a passion and desire to be the best they can be - whether you're a full time professional or a part time interested beginner!

So you may be in Carlisle or Colombia, Durban or Dubai, Sydney or Santa Monica, but as long as you can get on the internet, you have access to the best practical knowledge and skills for this area in the world!

To help you decide, it's worth knowing that all three options are the same core course, but they offer different things based on YOUR requirements. (You can also check out the video 'Q and A about the Sport Psychology and NLP course' on the right!)

Option One

The 'no frills' approach: No assessments, no pass mark, no hassle. The stripped down, no frills approach.

Option Two

The 'CPD accreditation' approach: Where measurement of your progress and CPD accreditation is important to you, but you've not decided if you want to 'go the whole way' yet!

Option Three

The 'full certification' approach: You're committed to your learning, and want the knowledge AND certification. This includes both the online course (Option Two) and 3 days of face to face applied training. For those serious about taking their learning to the full.
