High Performance Athletes and High Performance Kids

• 35 min

"High performance" is something that most of us share as a common goal, whether by design or by default. After all, no one thinks to themselves, "I really want to be mediocre today." Elite athletes are learning that the key to high performance is in the things they do when they're not playing. Sure, traditionally that has included things like nutrition and training, but tons of research has shown that an hour in the sheets might be better than an hour in the weight room. Dr. Chris Winter is known in the sports world for his work with elite athletes - not only one-on-one, but with entire teams. He's also recognized as a high performance specialist in his own right - a fully board certified neurologist and double board certified sleep specialist, he's been improving sleep at his private clinic and in group consultations with a presence in sleep medicine for more than twenty-five years. His first book, The Sleep Solution: Why Your Sleep Is Broken and How To Fix It (affiliate link), just marked its 4th birthday on shelves; now, it's being followed by The Rested Child: Why Your Tired, Wired, or Irritable Child May Have a Sleep Disorder--and How to Help (affiliate link), which is now available for pre-order. It lays out the path for high performance children by first cutting through common misdiagnoses of things like diabetes, learning disorders, chronic pain or others, which actually are just sleep disorders that aren't so carefully disguised. Dr. Winter joins the show and along with host Neil Hedley, has almost a little too much fun, if there is such a thing. They discuss everything from high performance athletes to high performance kids and everything between. Linkapalooza Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine - Dr. Winter's private clinic.
