Who is 'The Brainy Athlete'?
As an athlete you know that you must allow time for your body to rest and recover to improve. If you don’t, you risk overtraining your body, excess fatigue, injury, your performance suffers, and you may even stop enjoying your sport.
But it’s not only your body you need to take care of. Your brain needs to rest and recover too because it runs everything and uses more energy than any other part of your body. How well you care for your brain every day can make or break you as an athlete. If your brain is fatigued and low on energy when you show up to train or compete, it can feel impossible to mentally push through and deliver the performance you know you can achieve.
In The Brainy Athlete, you’ll learn:
Why your brain is central to your performance, wellbeing and success
The performance benefits of prioritising your brain’s rest and recovery
To make healthier lifestyle choices every day for your brain
Proven solutions for amateur, elite, and professional athletes.
How you can become a Brainy Athlete
And much more
Perfection is not your goal. Prioritising your brain to help you be the best athlete you can be is. It’s time to invest in your brain now and become the Brainy Athlete you were meant to be!
