“We are now understanding that [the Mind Training is] as important, if not more important than other facets of what we’re practicing, whether it be out on the field, in the gym. You know the mind is a very strong, powerful muscle.”

Michael Maguire, Head Coach, South Sydney Footbal Club, September 2014.

We undertook mind training because Barangaroo is not waiting for anyone.

Out Of Your Mind is an 8 week training system that has 2 components. We first reduce the threats that get in the way of performing at our best (fatigue & overwhelm, fear, lack of awareness & lack of focus). Then we enhance the qualities of a high performance mind, building mind health, efficiency, resilience and creativity.

The program is made up of 12 mind health tools, 10 mind efficiency tools, 11 mind resilience tools and 10 high powered mind tools.


The program blends 3 disciplines; Eastern performance tools, elite sports performance approaches and the latest understandings of the mind from modern science. The training system has been specifically designed to fit within the constraints of the modern world to make it easy to digest.

All programs are experiential, simple, supported by science and outcome based. No hippy mumbo jumbo here!


We wanted a brand name that disarmed people and overcame their cynicism to this space.

It needed to be a name that was provocative and challenging yet somehow familiar. One of our programs teaches participants how to get out of the default, multi-tasking, stressed mind and into a more focused, creative, intuitive way of knowing.

Hence Out Of Your Mind came into being.
