Every successful athlete appreciates the necessity of having a plan for reaching top levels of performance. This plan includes the optimal amount of rest required, the types of training sessions that produce the best results, the best diet in general and also before and after competitions, and the amount of water needed to remain ideally hydrated. These are just some of the factors that are considered in an elite athlete's training and lifestyle regimen.
Serena and Venus Williams, Michael Phelps, Missy Franklin, Allison Schmitt, Misty May-Treanor, Kerri Walsh and other Olympic gold medalists could not reach the zenith in their respective sports without having a clearly defined roadmap to help them achieve success.
Without a plan for optimal health and wellness, we tend to make dietary choices either out of convenience or to satisfy a current craving. Without a plan for physical activity, we're more likely to lounge on the couch watching television night after night or play video games for hours at a time. None of these activities and habits will help us to attain and maintain optimal health. Instead we end up putting on additional pounds each year, allowing our bodies to deteriorate more with each passing sedentary hour.
