Intro to Neuro Performance - 1 Day Workshop

Neuro Performance is booming and the term or variations of it are being heard more and more often by those in the sports/fitness/rehab industries.

The concept and method however tends to be lost in translation and few have been able to grasp a true understanding and a developed skill in this area. 

Neuro Performance or Performance Neurology allows us to apply knowledge of the brain and nervous system into systematic testing protocols. This then provides a blueprint of that client and allows us to act according to their specific needs. 

The key to understanding Neuro Performance is that the brain and nervous system control EVERYTHING. Take the brain out and what do you have? Few have managed to harness this as a testing and training tool. Few have been able to understand training and rehabilitation in a brain based way. Knowing that every problem is a brain problem is the first fundamental to be understood in Performance Neurology.

With over 6 years hands on experience in this particular field and over 15 years in the industry, I discovered a few home truths,

 - learning in this field is a lengthy process that can take years and years

 - getting solid, practical experience is harder and takes even longer 

 - full understanding of the field is often not accomplished by professionals even after attending handfuls of courses

 - many courses offer a toolbox of techniques and information but do not give you any actual methods to use them

 - many professionals become attracted to performing neurological ‘tricks’ to persuade potential clients to work with them, which sets them up for failure later

 - many professionals have no idea where to start once they have the information they need, which tests to use and why, how, what happens if…. etc

After spending 2 years delivering courses ranging from beginners to more advanced levels, I have developed a course that cuts through to the essentials. What I have spent years learning through trial and error, has been consolidated into something that both

 - applies the knowledge and techniques of Performance Neuro

 - allows professionals to cut through to a simpler method of testing and then USING Performance Neuro with clients
