Athletes are incredibly fortunate to work alongside a variety of coaches who are invested in their success. In many cases, coaches are what make everything else on this list possible. A strength coach can help design an individualised training programme; a nutrition coach can make specific pre and post-workout recommendations and a sports coach can help the athlete set performance and habit goals.
Coaches help athletes stay focused and keep progressing with tracking tools. Apps such as My Fitness Pal or Strava are incredibly useful. They remove many of the ‘planning’ stresses from the athlete and allow them to focus more on the implementation side, making the athlete become more intuitive with listening to how their body is performing.
Developing an exercise schedule that is suited to your needs, requirements and timeframe will help you to stay on track and meet your goals.
