Athlete Health 

Athletes are required to adapt to incredibly high training volumes and training intensities. At The Linné Institute, we work to optimize your physiology in order to properly adapt to these demands. This allows the athlete to get the most out of each training and recovery period. It is not uncommon for an athlete to train all year, only to miss events or season goals because of a prolonged bout of viral bronchitis, a sinus infection, or chronic fatigue after an illness. Sometimes underperformance is appropriately attributed to over-training/under-recovering. We strive to support your physiology in ways that allow you to best adapt to these demands. 

Elite athletes need to pay attention to the small details. Long before the British cycling coach Dave Brailsford popularized the principle of  “the aggregation of marginal gains,” athletes such as the great Gunde Svan and others understood that small improvements in multiple areas, while individually negligible,  can make a big difference when those improvements are measured in aggregate. At The Linné Institute, we apply this same principle to supporting physiology in individual and particular ways that will be unique to each athlete based on a careful history combined with mathematical modeling.

Strictly WADA-approved treatments are offered. At The Linné Institute, we work to stack the cards in your favor so that you can achieve your top potential legally, naturally, and fairly.

Consultations for national or elite team members are available internationally by special arrangement only in conjunction with your established team physician licensed in your country.
