The best way to get a good result in any sport is to train hard, regularly and consistently, says Professor Martin Fanning, who works in sports medicine at St John Ambulance in Auckland.
But he cautions that there is no “one-size-fits-all” training regimen.
The best training method should be tailored to the individual.
“If you’re not getting the results you need from training, it might be a good idea to go back to the drawing board and try another sport,” he says.
Sports psychologist Ian Whiteley agrees that it’s important to get the right training and to use it regularly, but adds that a sports physiologist has to take into account individual training needs.””

Sports psychologist Ian Whiteley agrees that it’s important to get the right training and to use it regularly, but adds that a sports physiologist has to take into account individual training needs.
“In general, the best way is to have your sports physiotherapists work with you on a regular basis and get you in the best shape you can,” he explains.
Sports physiotherapeutic coach Matt Jones agrees.
“It’s a great idea to have someone who is an expert in that area working with you and to give them a good understanding of what you’re going through,” he advises.
“But the key thing is to make sure you get the best possible results.”
He adds that sports physiotherapy can be an important part of the rehabilitation programme.
“That’s where they get to see how your recovery is progressing.””
This can be really beneficial because it means you’re able to take some time off to be with your loved ones and your physiotheraphysicists,” he adds.
