As a consultant to many athletes ranging from development level to elite and professional one of the biggest hurdles is ensuring adequate recovery from training. Sleep is critical in the recovery process as this is the body's primary opportunity to repair and recover. However, many athletes are chronically sleep deprived or have issues with obtaining quality restorative sleep. I see this occurring on a regular basis from teenage athletes who aren't sleeping enough to elite athletes whose sleep patterns may be disrupted due to jet lag or training stress. Dealing with an athlete's sleep requires a professional who is trained not only in the physiology of sleep but who also understands the nuances of elite human performance. When it comes to sleep for high performance athletes, Dr. Samuels at the Centre for Sleep and Human Performance is the best I have seen. With his help several of my athletes have experienced huge improvements in performance, health and general well being. I would strongly recommend Dr. Samuels to any coach or athlete who is looking for ways to improve recovery and get more out of training.
