Athletes’ bodies have particular demands and requirements.
While normal people suffer primarily from the effects of too little movement and inadequate nutrition, active athletes have to react to the consequences of daily training and overstrain.
Here, the difference between professional and amateur athletes is frequently a question of regeneration. Professional athletes regenerate professionally, while amateur athletes face the challenge of reconciling the demands of their training with daily work and busy private lives.
At best, the nutritional demands of any particular sport are observed somewhat adequately, but amateur athletes almost always neglect active regeneration.
Regular manual therapy helps take care of traumatised muscle tissue and enable it to regenerate more quickly. Blockages are resolved so movement patterns aren’t disrupted or negatively affected. This is essential for injury prevention.
At the same time, diverse requirements at different stages of a competitive season from active preparation to off season can be met. Naturally, for athletes, a rapid treatment of injury and their rehabilitation are also key.
Depending on the sport and specific training goals, tailored nutritional plans with individually adjusted calorie intakes can be developed. Here, it is about the ideal combination of protein, carbohydrates and fats, so the desired training goals can be reached effectively while maintaining health, well-being and consistently high energy levels.
Also depending on the type of sport and the current training phase, weight gain or loss as well as the increased need for certain micronutrients, in particular antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids, can be adjusted.
A crucial factor is the adjustment to personal requirements, individual metabolic type as well as tolerance of certain foods. Therefore, a tailored and supervised programme is always far superior to any diet template downloaded randomly from the web.
Most of us know what we would have to do to make things better. More of this, less of that, and immediately, our nutritional balance would be much improved.
Also, more sleep and much more moderate exercise, and that’s all we would have to do for a healthier existence.
But then life gets in the way. Too much stress, not enough sleep, unhealthy meals eaten too quickly, and either no time at all for exercise or a desperate attempt to fit a complex fitness programme into an already busy day.
We also most times just can’t meet our body’s increased demand for certain micronutrients, no matter how hard we try.
The consequences are often chronic tiredness, a susceptibility to infections, a drop in performance and extreme fatigue.
This is where useful, high-quality supplements and nutrients come into play, which help us meet the challenges of everyday life and at the same time balance out any deficiencies caused by our lifestyle.
It’s key not to blindly trust in random multivitamins, but instead evaluate a detailed blood work-up and then supplement accordingly, monitoring the blood results as you go. This helps achieve a drastic improvement in quality of life and performance curve across an entire competitive or training season.
After 6 months of constant pain due to a sports injury, Georg fixed something that doctors couldn’t even correctly diagnose. Many thanks!
Extremely competent and innovative – would highly recommend.
We made it – thanks to a large degree to you!
Simply the best.
