⇒ SPORTS MEDICINE
It is very important that when you practise a sport constantly you do a series of tests and medical investigations, to make sure that everything is fine. A sports medical consultation will show you if your health condition allows you to run and what aspects you need to take care of.
If you are a member of a sports club, this consultation must be done periodically.
⇒ SPORTS NUTRITION

With the help of personalized food recommendations, you will more easily support the effort during training and competitions and you will recover faster.
