How We Do It

Optimising Training

Training programmes created to produce peak competition performance

We devise performance-driven, athlete-focused and coach-led training programmes to ensure athletes are in optimal physical condition for major competitions.

Elite athletes spend the vast majority of their time preparing for competition. And because training is daily, and likely to account for hundreds of hours each year, it’s vital to have a long-term programme which optimises its effectiveness as athletes build towards competition.

To do this, under the direction of the athlete’s coach and high performance director, we provide the right level and blend of expert practitioner support in all the areas needed to improve performance.

contractors integrated in the performance team

This includes our Strength & Conditioning team, who work with the athlete and coach to develop a programme that targets the specific physical needs of the athlete – working towards peaking at competition time. Our Performance Nutrition Programme is also tailored to each athlete, using the latest world-class evidence-based nutritional research to create different strategies to boost performance during training and competition phases.

Another way in which we optimise training is with Performance Physiologists, who work with coaches to monitor their athletes’ physiological and performance-related variables, and use the information to increase ongoing training effectiveness.
