Collegiate Running Association Announces Partnership with activacuity®

(Richmond, VA) -- The Collegiate Running Association announced today a partnership with activacuity®, the first guided imagery app for athletes.
The activacuity App provides daily audio sessions of 10-15 minutes in duration, using guided imagery and positive psychology. Guided imagery has been used with great effect by elite athletes for decades, traditionally delivered by sports psychologists in a clinical setting. activacuity contains the same science based tools and techniques that sports psychologists deliver, making them accessible for athletes of all abilities in a form that is user friendly.
Guided imagery is a gentle, yet powerful technique that focuses and directs the imagination, and is recognized as one of the most powerful tools in an athlete’s mental skills toolkit. Each session is designed to empower the listener to use their own imagination to create a detailed, complete experience or response to help them achieve a specific goal.
Terry Chiplin, the visionary behind activacuity and owner of Active at Altitude, says: “Your mind is one of your greatest assets, and yet it is also one that very few athletes pay much attention to. Mental training is at least as important as physical training, with top coaches and athletes agreeing should be part of a daily training regimen for all athletes, regardless of pace level or ability. The daily sessions contained in activacuity provide a mechanism to train the mind, develop new neural pathways with a positive focus, that results in enhanced focus, confidence and performance for all athletes, as well as daily life. activacuity brings an affordable positive support system that complements physical training for all athletes regardless of ability. We have been seeing excellent results using the app, from all levels of athletes from elites to recreational status. We are very excited to partner with the Collegiate Running Association and bring activacuity to a wider athletic audience.”
“This app is the future in mental training and brings those guided imagery techniques conveniently to your fingertips when it best fits your time schedule” said Collegiate Running Association co-founder Steve Taylor. “As an athlete we believe it’s important to train your mind, as you do your body. Regardless of whether you are training for participation purposes or elite level competition, activacuity will help you become an even better you. Through our partnership with activacuity our supporters and membership will be able to subscribe to this service at a discounted rate, while helping support the 501(c)(3) mission of the CRA.”
At launch, activacuity is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, and is available on the App Store. There are seven free daily sessions that introduce users to guided imagery; paid subscription options are available for both monthly and yearly users that gives access to a comprehensive library of daily sessions.
