Webinar: Sleep as A Crucial Factor for Maximizing Peak Performance
In the world of professional athletes, competitive sports, and high-intensity training, there’s an often overlooked, key tactic in any athlete’s winning formula: sleep! Sleep is a critical brain function. Failure to obtain adequate sleep quality and quantity results in poor reaction time, poor decision making, lower ability to learn and retain information, and lower motivation to perform. All of which result in poor athletic performance. However, with fatigue management and sleep science, coaches and athletes can greatly improve their performance, and ultimately, unlock new potential.
There is no question that athletes need rigorous training and effective physical conditioning in order to succeed. But very few athletes care as much about resting as they do about working hard. This webinar aims to change that by explaining why sleep is a crucial factor for maximizing peak performance and engaging in purposeful recovery.
