Leaders in Performance offers a series of unique, interactive workshops that are led by the top figures and innovators in the industry, draw on the expertise of the audience, and offer deeper insight into a number of key sporting performance topics. They are “invite-only” with no agencies or suppliers allowed, and offer an intimate environment away from the main conference platforms for smaller groups of experts.
The Leaders in Performance 2012 workshops included:
The Aspetar Sports Medicine Symposium – Performing in the Heat: Get the most out of your Athletes
Whilst it is important for delegates at Leaders in Performance to gain a broad understanding of the performance world, it is also key to spend quality time with like-minded peers on a specific area of expertise. To that end, we are delighted that Aspetar hosted a specific sports medicine session on some of the current issues of the day in a dedicated room of the conference.
Wondering how to maximise your training camp ‘benefit to cost ratio’ by getting the best from your athletes? Recent evidence shows that heat-training camps can increase performance faster than altitude-training camps. In one hour the world experts on exercising in the heat provided all the tips you need to maintain athlete health and improve performance on the day of competition.
