Human Performance Project

IL HPP CHAPTERS

There are ILHPP Chapters across the state! The Illinois Human Performance Project is a developing chapter of the national Life of an Athlete Human Performance Project. Designed to educate and hold students accountable for making healthy life choices regarding sleep, nutrition, substance avoidance, mood, and leadership in order to achieve optimal performance. Although the national program was originally designed for athletes, the Illinois Human Performance Project targets all students, not just athletes, to challenge and empower their peers to set positive standards in health and leadership to achieve optimal performance.
