Better Life. Better Performance.

Hintsa Performance is a global leader in human high-performance coaching. For over 20 years, we have proven our science-based methods in the world’s most competitive environments. Clients from Formula 1 champions to Fortune 500 CEOs, executive teams and global organisations trust Hintsa to help them succeed.

In this video our CEO Annastiina Hintsa tells the fascinating story of Hintsa Performance and shows how a better life leads to better performance.

“Hintsa, a global leader in high-performance coaching for top executives, business professionals and athletes, has created a signature model „The Circle of Better Life“, which helps you to cope with stress factors in your daily busy life.”

“One of the most hotly discussed events at the World Economic Forum was a session on sleep and peak performance. Hintsa’s session was so oversubscribed that the WEF had scheduled a second one for the next day.”​

Hintsa’s method is based on a simple idea: a better quality of life leads to better performance. Instead of teaching sales techniques or productivity boosting, Hintsa tutors its clients in how to live better, healthier and more fulfilling lives.”​
