What is Mental Fitness Training And Why Do We Need It?

Mental Fitness is a measure of how good or bad our mental health is.


Good mental health is characterised by a person’s ability to fulfil a number of key functions and activities without becoming mentally fatigued, overwhelmed or unduly stressed over long periods of time.  These functions and activities include:

  • the ability to learn

  • the ability to feel, express and manage a range of positive and negative emotions

  • the ability to form and maintain good relationships with others

  • the ability to cope with and manage change and uncertainty


How does one measure Mental Fitness?

A Positive Intelligence Quotient (PQ) score is a good indication of the condition of our mental fitness. The score ranges from 0 -100. The higher the PQ score, the chances of living into your higher potential is greater with greater satisfaction and fulfilment in life.

The PQ score indicates the predominance of using one’s negative tendencies / habits to carry out life functions and activities versus using one’s positive tendencies / habits to achieve the same.

Introducing the Positive Intelligence (PQ) Programme ...

Positive Intelligence (PQ) Programme

The PQ Programme is a mental fitness program designed by renowned coach and best-selling author of Positive Intelligence, Shirzad Chamine.

The Program is validated by research done by Shirzad and his team at Stanford University. The research was conducted on 500,000 participants from 50 countries across various categories and shows PQ to be the best predictor of reaching high levels of potential based on high life satisfaction levels and a sense of fulfilment.

Positive Intelligence is a synthesis of recent breakthroughs in:

  • Neuroscience

  • Cognitive Psychology

  • Positive Psychology and

  • Performance Science

The Conceptual Framework of Positive Intelligence

You are taught a very simple conceptual framework that consists of:

  • Activate and building your Sage Muscle (with it’s five gifts)

  • Weaken your Saboteur Muscles (Judge and 9 accomplice saboteurs) and

  • Build your Self Command Muscle (discipline and self-motivation)

The PQ Programme is designed to help people around the globe move from a survival mentality to a creative and inspirational one.

It is an evidenced based model derived from neuroscience and psychological principles. At the root level you learn to identify your Judge and it’s nine accomplice saboteurs. You are taught simple techniques to weaken them. At the same time, you are taught how to activate your Sage which brings peace, composure, creativity, inspiration and clarity.

The end result is that this simple mental fitness program enables you to boost all 18 emotional intelligence competencies. You will be able to turn adverse situations into gifts and opportunities.

A mental fitness app that will provide:

An online weekly group coaching session (30min – 1 hour) to discuss progress or issues and more about the focus sessions. This is a Zoom call on a Monday/Tuesday evening facilitated by me.

Teachings and excercises on the app aim to:

  • To dissolve current unhelpful habits and

  • Create more functional and productive habits

  • Create a structure that facilitates building self-discipline and consistency by pushing alerts to practice in 5 x 2 minute exercises at certain times during the day.

  • Provide insights and change neural pathways to increase PQ scores

  • Encourage right action and self-motivation

What is covered in the six weeks?

  • Week 1: Boost Your Self-Command Muscle

If you’re mentally fit, you can handle life’s great challenges without mental stress and
more awareness of negative emotions. You’ll be happier and perform better.
