Elite athletes are highly talented and motivated individuals with a collection of specific qualities and attributes that are necessary to enable reliable and repeated highly perfected physical performance.
Improving performance is a goal for most if not all athletes, whatever their current level of attainment. Marginal gains matter. Challenges and threats to performance level include environmental factors (e.g. climate, jet lag, nutrition & micro-nutrient status), endogenous physiological factors (e.g. hydration, sleep quality, hormone balance, immune function, digestive factors), psychological barriers, neurological factors (concentration and focus) and inter-current illnesses.
Optimising performance in athletes can be challenging because of the multitude of simultaneous factors that can negatively affect performance and because these factors are unpredictable, different for each individual and can change over time. Therefore an individualised, tailored approach to optimising performance in athletes is essential, taking into consideration and addressing all potential factors that can impede performance.
