There's more to high performance sport than training for an event, turning up, and competing. Athletes, particularly in the professional era, have so much to think about...
Eating healthily on a tight budget, balancing a social life with an intense training programme, dealing with the media, keeping sponsors happy, handling the expectations of others, coping with long periods of time 'on-the-road', building functional relationships with coaches and team-mates, keeping anti-doping whereabouts information up-to-date, and dealing with injury are just some of the additional challenges faced by athletes. Add to that the everyday demands of human life, work and educational commitments, personal relationships and financial concerns, and the busy life of the athlete, become the hectic life of the person.
Given the demands that an athlete faces in his or her everyday life, it is unsurprising that lifestyle, personal development and welfare management has become a recognised support service for elite athletes. But you don't have to be a high performance athlete to benefit from simple life planning. Personal management and coping skills can help individuals of all abilities to reach their potential on and off the field.
