SPORTPEC is a Sports Performance Enhancement Center offering services to better athletic performance.
Why do some athletes make it to the top and what helped them get there? As sport is becoming more and more competitive we feel that performance should be approached from a holistic level and all areas such as sports medicine, strength and fitness, nutrition and mental skills should be worked on to reach maximum potential.
Elite, professional, as well as amateur sports have become more and more developed over the years and without a holistic approach to training and performance enhancement it is very difficult to survive in the sports world. There is a need for athletes to have access to services that provide them with the necessary skills that will allow them to reach their maximum potential in their sport.
We have developed a High Performance Programme in order to assist athletes involved in various sporting codes to improve their knowledge and skills in order to enhance their performance both in training and in competition.
- To enhance the necessary skills for training and competing optimally
- To educate athletes about sports medicine, injury prevention, strength and fitness, nutrition, and sports psychology (mental skills in sports).
- To provide athletes, coaches, parents, teams, clubs, and federations with up-to-date scientifically based information in a practical user-friendly way.
- To provide a structured service with experienced specialists in each field
- To enhance athletic performance and the enjoyment of sport
