Strengthen Mental Performance

Help clients achieve the perfect balance between brain and body.

More and more, the world is recognizing the importance of a healthy mind as well as a healthy body in the sporting and performance world.

No need to be a former athlete or psychology major – what’s important is a passion to enhance mental performance.

Understand Admissions


Just as a personal trainer strengthens athletes' muscles, you’ll strengthen mental skills for performers of all kinds.

Create Opportunities

"The best thing about the SEPP program is the variety of opportunities, and the freedom to create opportunities aligning with your interests. Being able to have internship placements and research projects that will help advance your career while still being in school is extremely helpful in this field."
