Workload Management

Keep athletes fit, healthy, and ready to win

Preventable injury and illness are major problems

Poor load management is a leading risk factor

Frequency is alarming

1.5M high school and college athletes are injured in the US every year, while every hour, 172 student-athletes suffer a sports injury severe enough to seek medical attention.

Costs are enormous

Injuries can cause athletes’ to drop-out from sport, negatively affect his/her long term health and often place an increased burden on the health care system.

Athletes can be overtrained or undertrained

Athletes who are training intensively walk a fine line between peak performance and health issues. Training too much (or to little) will inevitably result in disappointing performance, illnesses or injury.

We can help

AthleteMonitoring.com uses evidence-based methods to provides you with a real-time picture of each athlete’s risk of injury and readiness. It helps you adjust training programs based on individual response to load, and improve performance safely.

Keep athletes in the ‘high performance-low risk’ zone

Load, injuries and performance are closely tied. Optimal workload management helps you monitor the individual load-performance-injury relationship and maximize athletic potential safely

The Acute:Chronic Workload Ratio (ACWR) is a crucial workload management metric that measure the relationship between acute load (3-7 day load) and chronic load (21-28 day average load). Monitoring ACWR helps to keep athletes in the ‘high-load, low-risk zone’ and maximize performance while minimizing the risk of injuries. (Adapted from: Foster, 1996; Gabbett TJ, 2016)

Risk is Multifaceted–Everything Counts

AthleteMonitoring.com helps you monitor risk factors in real time, and optimize workload using a holistic approach

How it works

Athletes complete a short wellness questionnaire every morning and a quick post-session questionnaire.

AthleteMonitoring alerts coaches when an athlete is not ready for a hard training day, when risk increases and provide ‘how-to-fix’ recommendations.

1

AthleteMonitoring analyse wellness (fatigue, stress, sleep quality, etc), readiness and workload metrics (acute:chronic workload ratio, week to week load increase, monotony, strain, etc.) and identify individual issues using evidence-based algorithms and published risk thresholds.
Coach can then make an informed decision and adapt the athlete’s program based on the athletes’ individual workload alerts, fatigue (physical and psychological), wellness, fitness, health and recovery levels.

Did you know?

When workload increases by ≥15 % from the preceding week, the risk of injury can increase by up to 50 %

"I am very pleased with AthleteMonitoring.com. As a coach, it gave me unique insight into not only players injuries, illness and training and match load but gave us unique insight into other areas of their psychology that usually we don’t know. It is a wonderful tool for coaches"

Stefani Webb Head Women's Soccer Coach / Assistant AD, University of Texas - Tyler

 

"I could not be happier with what we have achieved this season with regards to the time efficient collection, automated analysis and storage of data with AthleteMonitoring.com. Our injury stats have been outstanding and I am sure that you have played a part in us achieving that. Thanks."

"Having available athletes is a key focus in our mission statement for the 35th Americas Cup. The AthleteMonitoring app has enabled us to efficiently record and analyse how our athletes feel on a day to day basis and how they react to training load. Our athletes find it easy to use and we find it easy to access athlete readiness. I have used other apps and Excel versions before but Francois and his team have created a cost efficient user friendly version that is the best I have used to date. They are always on hand to discuss data analysis and are open to change allowing coaches to recommend changes that would benefit their personal requirements & needs. This approach to helping coaches tailor their data collection is a breath of fresh air and has made our decision to use Athlete Monitoring beyond worthwhile."

Ben Williams Head of Strength & Conditioning, LandRover BAR, UK  

 

"AthleteMontoring has allowed us to improve our athlete monitoring through the introduction of a daily, online athlete wellness questionnaire. We objectively track day-day performance changes across a range of physical readiness tests and also track training loads at an individual level. Francois and his team are readily available to provide assistance and are extremely proactive in discussing and implementing future additions and adjustments to the monitoring system so it continues to provide a simple, time efficient method of monitoring a professional sports team.
