The biggest challenge, especially for amateur athletes, is to find the right balance between your family life, your work life and your training commitments.
Therefore, the first thing that you and your personal coach are going to do, is to assess your individual situation and come up with a plan that enables you to make the most of the time you have available. After all your training commitments should not be an additional source of stress, putting a strain on you and your environment, but an enrichment and support in your life.
After a detailed initial assessment, involving the exploration of your availability to train and the setting of realistic goals, each of the individual steps of the training control loop (Figure 1, below) are tackled in the best possible manner.
Our main focus lies in the area of training control and planning. However, we cover the content and discipline specific aspects of its individual disciplines (see staff profiles for swimming and running) as well as working on the force, stabilisation and mobility related components of training and performance. Finally, taking everyday life and diet into account, we merge all these sub-components of training and performance into a unified whole!
