We had a special treat for our Active Pass members: a live webinar on sports psychology from expert Dr. Jim Taylor on Thursday, Sept. 17.

If you missed the webinar, you can watch the video now below. In the session, Dr. Taylor introduced the power of the mind in your training and racing efforts. He also explained how the mind impacts your performance and how to use mental training to get your brain as strong as your body. And participants took Dr. Taylor’s mental performance assessment—think of it as “physical testing for the mind”—in which you will learn your mental strengths and weaknesses, as well as how to improve.

Curious? You can also read all of Dr. Taylor’s sports psychology articles.

Stay tuned for our next monthly webinar, where we’ll dive deeper into how to develop the mental tools and skills you need.
