At Precision Athletica, great athletes definitely equals great members and a big thank you to all of those who joined us yesterday for our first ever members night!
The evening, hosted by our Head of S&C; Nils Hestermann, was a chance for us to thank you all for your continued support of Precision Athletica, as well as update you on some of our recent changes and developments.
For those who were unable to attend, Nils opened the evening by thanking members and providing a timely reminder about our Precision Atheltica methodology, performance pyramid and the importance and make-up of the famed cog logo!
In summary, the theme of Nils opening message was that no matter how far you make it, in the end, you want to be able to say: ’I gave it my all’.
Next up was a general athletica update, provided by our Head of Sales and Marketing; Jon Perkins. Jon gave a brief overview of the current Athletica partnerships, including recent additions that have seen us become the High Performance Partner for Triathlon NSW and NSW Training Centre for GravityFit.
Attending members were also the first to be told about a new upcoming partnership with nutrition brand Body Science, an agreement that will provide Athletica members with a 20% discount on all supplements, as well as informing them about our new Biomechanics Lab that is little more than two weeks away.
Other updates covered: website changes, athlete focused news articles and videos, and an explanation of our social media plans, including opportunities for more athletes to get involved in initiatives such as the popular Instagram takeover series.
Following Jon was our new dietitian Stephanie Hage.
Steph has just joined the Athletica team and will be working under the guidance of our Director of Dietetics and Nutrition; Ryan Pinto.
In her talk, Steph explained a little of what members should expect from sessions with her and the importance of getting an effective meal plan in place to maximise performance in training and competition.
Along with her introduction, Steph leant her talk towards the theme of protein for performance, a topic that seemed to strike a popular chord with the members.
To conclude the night, Nils was back up on the mic introducing our new High Performance Manager (HPM) initiative, something that will see all members assigned a dedicated HPM to provide them with even greater care and attention.
The HPM will be a link between athletes, coaches, family and other Athletica staff, through these relationships we will be able to elevate performance gains even further!
A key component of elevating gains will include an increased focus on our exclusive Athlete Management System (AMS) and Nils provided a series of handy tips to get the most out of the system when training both at home and on the road.
