Athlete Tracking With SPT

Athlete development requires more than just hard work and dedication to succeed, it also requires great note taking, reflection, and analysis.

With SPT's exclusive platform, athletes can build a fitness/health profile, track their progress with monthly fitness assessments and daily reporting, and get monthly, quarterly, and yearly summary reports based on real data.

SPT's Athlete Tracking is suitable for athletes with or without existing training programs. This system is designed to monitor athlete accountability and integrates well with athlete's private trainers. Coaches, parents, and athletes can rely on SPT's Athlete Tracking to yield objective reports for measuring athlete progress.

What is Athlete Tracking?

For decades, physiological testing and monitoring was only available for the most elite and endowed athletes due to barriers in cost and availability. Today, those barriers no longer exist! Decreases in the costs of today's softwares and technologies make the physiological tools for testing and monitoring accessible and affordable. The standard for athletes at all levels today is, “If you’re not testing, you’re guessing.”

At Sailing Performance Training, our goal is to train more efficiently and effectively using data-analysis. Through objective and subjective measurements, athletes and trainers can build training programs that are more customized with prioritization in athlete planning and help the athlete better monitor injury risk. SPT’s programs not only provide the analysis and tools for success, but also guidance and curriculum for athlete’s to learn the standards and key indicators for how their bodies are responding to training. It’s a thin line between an athlete training optimally and one that is over training, and with SPT’s Athlete Tracking, athletes are better protected from the dangers of overtraining and more educated about their development.

Athlete Tracking Metrics With Sailing Performance Training

Daily Measurements

Body Weight – Daily measurement of weight for understanding if you are on track for your performance goals. It’s important to understanding how quickly weight is gained or lost since weight gain could indicate water retention and inflammation and excessive weight loss could be due to inappropriate nutritional fueling.

Subjective Evaluation – This is the athlete’s interpretation of how their body feels. Although subjective, sports science research shows that an athlete’s subjective evaluation is a strong predictor of an athlete’s readiness for training. Questions asked cover topics like muscle soreness, muscle fatigue, overall health, hydration, stress, and more.

Sleep – Sleep is important for physical and mental recovery. The type of sleep, quality, and amount play important roles in an athlete’s performance.

Sailing Metrics — Track hours sailed per condition and per boat for both your physical and sailing analysis. SPT provides industry knowledge and focus on understanding workload while training on and off the water since athletes have a narrow range of workload between effective training and overtraining. Our instantaneous reporting allows for athletes to build training reports and summaries for sharing with other coaches.

Weekly/Monthly Measurements

Training Load / Training Stress – Understand how your body responds to training and how training on and off the water effects your body. Using the daily metrics along with load measurements from sailing and gym training sessions,  SPT trainers can make subtle, and smart adaptations to an athlete’s fitness program.

Quarterly Measurements

Body Composition – Measure and verify proper body composition.

Strength and Movement Assessment – Measure and verify athletic improvement in movement and strength.

 Yearly Summary

Understand your physical and sailing training for any time period—even the previous year(s). With SPT data cluster and analytics, you can learn new trends and insight with our summary reports.
