A fully-staffed NBA pro team has 17 athletes. But did you know that another 25 people travel with them to an away game? This includes coaches, trainers, dietitians, therapists, managers, and medical staff who provide necessary support to reduce injury and optimize their performance before, during, and after the game.
Who travels with your youth athlete to an event? Who bridges the gap to provide accessible and integrated development and performance support between youth and professional athletes?
The Ludis Athletic Performance & Development (APD) team of Registered Dietitians, Physical Therapists, and Certified Mental Coaches have personal experience in what it takes to be an elite athlete. The Ludis APD team provides every athlete with an evidence-based strategy to optimize their play on the field and achieve health and wellness into adulthood. Plans are based on precise research, an honest assessment of strengths and weaknesses, and a careful examination of an athlete’s fuel, body, and mental capacity.
Our Certified Mental Coaches carefully examine an athlete’s mindset on and off the court, in different competitive situations, and how to manage the stress of being a student-athlete. Our Registered Dietitians provide personalized feedback on nutrition, backed by benchmark nutrition testing, to ensure you are fueling optimally to achieve great performance. Our Physical Therapists are trained in not only recovery, but sport-specific strength, conditioning, and recovery that is tailored to your position in your sport.
No athlete should travel their development and performance journey without a full crew to guide them in their fuel, movement, and mental game. Who travels with your athlete?
I hope this is helpful!
