Keeping you in the game


Peak performance can only be attained when built on a foundation of good health. By ignoring the building of this foundation, endurance athletes may find themselves in a frustrating cycle of underperformance, injury, illness or worse without ever performing at their true potential.

The sports medicine team at Waterfall SOS, the medical support behind Team Dimension Data Pro Cycling, has teamed with Ian Martin of Coach One to provide an integrated health optimisation and coaching service for endurance athletes.

We aim to deliver a professional service to all levels of athlete. Novices and elite athletes alike are sure to benefit from an integrated approach to health and training.

The programs are formulated from our experience in professional cycling and collective sports medicine and sports science knowledge. Each programme includes a thorough pre-competition medical examination, an ECG, blood investigations, initial performance testing and an individualised training program designed to help endurance athletes to reach their specific performance goals.  


Benefits:

·        Assessment of cardiovascular risk and screening for undiagnosed cardiovascular disease

·        Screening for common athletic nutritional deficiencies

·        Feedback and advice/treatment on any abnormal findings

·        Recognition and prevention of overtraining

·        Management of illness or injury during the season

·        A collaborative approach between sports science and sports medicine

·        Effective, individualised training programs

·        A healthier, fitter and faster you

The Programme:

Our Elite Programme is for athletes who may be new to the sport but would like to train effectively towards their goals.

The Neo-Pro Programme is for the serious amateur athlete who is looking to raise their performance to the next level through scientific training and expert medical care.
