The Power of Language on Performance


Tuesday 6th August 2019

6:30pm - 8:00pm

Run and Become, 4a Eccleston Street, London, SW1W 9LN


With Martin Feaver, MA Ed & Special Guest James Spalding

Every time you put your trainers on, the language you use has an impact on the results you get and it's the part most athletes never even think about.

In this workshop you’ll discover how your body and performance adapt to the language you use – both internal and external. We'll also cover ways to use language to improve your training results, as well as the role language has in recovery from injury and even preventing injuries in the first place! 

This is a practical workshop with clear explanations and practical tips to use straight away. You'll test the impact of language on your own body, learn simple techniques to reset your own nervous system for overcoming your personal language barriers, and be able to make immediate improvements in your performance. 
After working with athletes over many years, Martin has noticed they are often surprised at the difference changing the language they use makes to their performances.  

Whether you’re an amateur or professional athlete, injured (again!), exercise enthusiast, in rehab or starting out exercising, this workshop can help you change the results you are getting from the time and effort you put into your running.
