Athlete’s Corner

Unique demands for nutrients, repair and physiological adaptation,
rigorous training and the drive to meet performance targets

How Can Athlete Sanctuary Help?

The Athlete Sanctuary really appreciate the athlete’s unique demands for nutrients, repair and physiological adaptation, rigorous training and the drive to meet performance targets.

We also understand what life can be like for athletes trying to fit everything into a day including training, work, study, travel, relationships and family. We know how tough and at the same time rewarding achieving goals can be.

Everything we do in the clinic is designed to keep you enjoying your chosen activity to the best of your ability and with minimal disruption and downtime to your training or events. We collaboratively work with trainers, coaches and your preferred therapists and provide referrals to practitioners when your needs fall outside our scope of practice.

We won’t be asking you to take unnecessary “breaks” from training but we will help you to:

  1. Be “smart” about your current and future state of health,
  2. Gain perspective on life priorities and peak performance management,
  3. Understand your condition, your unique biological strengths and areas you need to nurture,
  4. Self-manage your condition so you are less reliant on others,
  5. Make sound choices, that reduce the risks of injury and maximise the chances of achieving some of your amazing goals.

The Athlete Sanctuary works with a range of sporting enthusiasts and active people from the recreational runner and gym member to elite athlete. We also work with those who enjoy general health and fitness, retired sportspeople and mothers regaining their fitness.  We help athletes across a range of modalities such as track and distance runners, cyclists, body shapers, adventure junkies, swimmers, team players, rowers, skiers, golfers, tennis players, triathlon and ironman participants.
