Athlete Development

Every single day, athletes rely on their bodies to perform at the highest level. That is why it is so important to train the right way and to be aware of correct nutrition. As a brand, we feel a responsibility to allow our young talents to acquire knowledge about nutrition, the science of training, injury prevention, and much more. That’s why we launched our High Athlete Development Program in collaboration with doctors, physiotherapists and nutrition specialists, to support our athletes on their way to even more world champion titles. The first sports medical tests took place in Vienna, Austria, hosted by Dr Lukas Brandner, Christian Slechta-Pleterski, Bsc. and their team.
