We’ll never stop saying that coaching athletes is an art — yet, it’s not an undefined art; to put it another way, it’s not devoid of structure — at least, it shouldn’t be. Indeed, coaching athletes requires the application of several different scientific fields, such as physiology, biomechanics, nutrition, and sports psychology. However, the key to optimize performance is to combine the above scientific practices with endurance performance analysis software.

That being the case, a coach’s objective here is twofold: on one hand, to achieve the best possible results for athletes; and on the other, to lower the risk of injuries.
