50% of elite or highly-trained athletes are identified as poor sleepers. 28% with significant prevalence of daytime sleepiness.

Poor sleep could be the reason your struggling to break your personal best.

The restorative qualities of sleep are fundamentally the basis of the individual athlete’s ability to recover and perform. Research consistently shows that a large percentage of the population fails to obtain the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep per night.

Even professional athletes are not exempt from this, in recent years research has shown there is a high relevance of poor sleep quality within the sporting community. Given its implications on the recovery process, sleep affects the quality of the athlete’s training and outcome of competitions.

Poor sleep in athletes has been linked with:

An increased incidence of fatigue related injury
Hormonal and metabolic disturbances
Elevated sympathetic nervous system activity
Immunosuppressive and increased risk of infection
Reduced reaction times
Negative performance outcome for endurance-based exercise
Increase in unstable emotional states
Reduced cognitive functions
