XPAND Performance is tailored to train teams of founders, executives, employees, and investors who work in high-pace intensive environments for peak performance under stress and exertion - both acute and chronic planned and unplanned.


Participants learn and practice how to develop and maintain - individually and as a team -  balance, resilience, clarity, focus, mental control, and creativity, in the hectic everyday life as well as under the most challenging conditions. 

Workshop formats range between 5 hrs to 3 days and are perfect for a team activity or an off-site.  All formats include practice in the water (in a private swimming pool), a theoretical introduction to the mechanism and methodologies, and devote the majority of the workshop to implementation inside and outside the water, practicing mindset transformation, breathing techniques, actual water training, individual and team-work simulations, and preparation for peak performance.
