Mental Performance & Meditation Adelaide

Too often overlooked, mental training and mindset is one of the first things an athlete should consider when looking to improve their overall sports performance and abilities. Encompassing anything from anxiety, lack of motivation, performance, self-esteem and self-confidence, mental performance informs and influences the way an athlete thinks about themselves, their abilities, and their habits—whether that be physical, nutritional, or otherwise. As an increasing number of high-profile Australian athletes are finding, maintaining one’s positive mindset with simple mindfulness and meditation techniques is increasingly essential.


Qualified nutritionist and long-time sportsperson herself, Tanya from Running Health Point is well-versed in the myriad of mental barriers that an athlete may face. Based in Adelaide, Tanya is equipped with various methods of meditation, mindfulness, and obstacle-overcoming  techniques to use pre, during or post running, to better her athletes’ short and long-term mental performance.

Breaking Down Mental Barriers

Especially common in endurance sports, in which Tanya specialises, athletes often find themselves unable to maintain or enhance their performance. Their mental strength is crucial to succeed in these types of sports.

Mental barriers can present themselves in different forms and at different times. Going from a simple lack of motivation to train, either due to physical reasons like tiredness, or external conditions like weather; to fighting against giving up during a race when your body is shutting down from pain and extreme fatigue.

With her years of experience in the field, Tanya can help her clients understand that, often, the only thing holding them back is themselves. She uses personalised advice using mindfulness & meditation techniques to help her clients develop the right mindset with which to overcome any barriers they may face.

Mindfulness and Meditation Methods, Adelaide

While the direct effect of meditation and mindfulness techniques on one’s actual athletic ability is still up for debate, the benefits of both on one’s general health are almost endless.
