This book is fantastic: Thoughtful and systematic. It informs about the athlete's health on so many beneficial levels and from multiple perspectives. The competitor's well-being was always vital to me and in this book, Dr. med. German E. Clénin breaks down this complex topic in an easy-to-comprehend way. The chapters are the cumulative result of his profound sports health knowledge and decades of professional experience in this field, from the developing athlete to the accomplished Olympian. Modern sport is highly complex and today's successful programs undoubtedly recognise the importance of health, stress and performance management. With Dr. Clénin's evidence-based approach, you will gain an insight into many approved contemporary practices across these fields! Without doubt, you will be a better equipped coach or athlete by reading his book! A healthy athlete is always a better performing athlete.

Die "Mixedzone" - die Zone zwischen ärztlicher Betreuung und effektivem Training - ist für einen Trainer von Spitzensportlern nicht immer einfach zu arrangieren. Auf der einen Seite sind die Weisungen des Arztes/Physiotherapeuten und auf der anderen Seite steht der Athlet, welcher möglichst schnell wieder in den normalen Trainingsbetrieb einsteigen möchte. Das Buch "Athletes' Health and Top Performance" beleuchtet genau diese "Mixedzone" und hilft mir als Trainer beide Seiten besser zu verstehen und so den Übergang von der Arztpraxis auf den Wettkampfplatz optimal zu gestalten.
