Accurate objective assessment plays a tremendous role in optimizing athlete performance. Longitudinal laboratory testing in athletes produces valuable information on the athlete’s health and fitness, allowing early recognition of subject-specific changes that may underlie clinically meaningful alterations of the athletes’ state of health and performance. Use of biomarkers (blood and saliva) can reduce the number of training days lost due to illnesses, identify key markers that signal overtraining that could lead to fatigue and being out of the game. All tools with value of faster recovery, more intensity in ones training and deep insight to the overall wellness of your body! HYPO2 has a 24-48 hour turn around on test results to make rapid change as markers indicate, meaning you as the athlete benefit by how quickly we can change or re-enforce your program.
Typical blood tests (particularly when evaluating biochemical responses to altitude) tend to be CBC, Chemistry Profile & Ferritin but the number of tests Hypo2 can provide are virtually without limit, allowing for individual biomarker prescription. Generally, athletes can expect to see results back within 24-48 hours, allowing ongoing training to be positively impacted by the quick turnaround.
An athlete’s mindset plays an undeniable role in the attainment of desired performance. This often neglected aspect of fitness is integral to the realization of ultimate potential. HYPO2’s mental performance team integrates established sports psychology methods with the most cutting-edge research in “Achievement Psychology”.

Group Workshops and Presentations
Sport Psychology Basics (1 hr)
This workshop is a basic introduction to sports psychology. It will summarize the principles of positive thinking and focused practice, SMART goal-setting, finding an optimal performance mindset, and coping with struggles, injuries and set backs. This is an ideal presentation for a young audience, and those with little experience with positive psychology.
Goal Setting (1-2 hrs)
This workshop will explore goal-setting theory in-depth. Empirical support for structured goal-setting will be articulated, and different methods and types of goals will be explored. Attendees will create a plan to attain a goal of their choosing, and will be provided with tools to increase the likelihood of goal attainment. This workshop can be adapted to suit young children and serious competitors alike.
Coping – injuries, failures, setbacks (1 hr)
Struggles, failures, injuries, and setbacks are an inevitable (and often valuable) part of sport. This workshop will discuss methods to cope with these, as well as discuss the valuable role of struggle and difficulty in our lives. This workshop can have a sport orientation or one geared toward life in general. It can be adapted for all age groups.
Effective visualization and progressive relaxation (1 hr)
Research on progressive relaxation (a technique that enables an individual to relax him or herself in high energy environments) and visualization have shown them to be powerful tools for skill development, enhancement, and optimal deployment. This workshop will walk attendees through the process of both techniques. Attendees will leave this workshop feeling confident that they can continue to practice both of these methods on their own.
Optimal Performance Mindset (1-2 hrs)
This workshop will discuss in detail the process of determining attendees own optimal performance mindset (also called ideal performance state). This will involve reflection on own best moments and the identification and utilization of individual character strengths. Attendees will complete practice, pre-competition, and competition plans designed to help them attain their optimal performance mindset more consistently.
Team Cohesion (1-3 hrs)
The focus of this workshop is to generate team cohesion through the cultivation of a team identity and a focus on team and individual strengths. Teams will emerge from the workshop with a clear picture of what it means to be a member of their particular group, and the unique strengths that they bring to that group. This workshop reliably boosts morale and friendship among team members. This can be adapted for any age group, sport and level of expertise.
