I work with an evidence-based approach, that will lead to improvements both in the short and long-term, and will help you reach the goals you set. Even though physical training is not yet considered a must for esports athletes, as they mostly rely on cognitive aspects to perform at the highest level, it is very important to take it into consideration.

Physical training can provide numerous benefits for your physical and mental health, and can help improve cognitive functions. The wellness of an athlete is paramount, and it starts with a healthy body and a healthy mind.

I also offer my scientific and technical knowledge and expertise as a consultant. If you want to improve and adopt an evidence-based approach, feel free to contact me.

All the services can be done remotely.

Fitness and esports performance are deeply correlated. A study from the German Sports University showed that esports athletes are exposed to very high physical strain, as much as traditional sports athletes. Thus, the necessity of training more and better.

Exercise can produce several positive adaptations for the body and the brain. Among the numerous health benefits, being active will help you reduce and control stress, anxiety and depression, and will help your mental fortitude. This will allow you to perform for a longer time, for example during a tournament, whilst keeping up your performance. Exercising will also improve your cognitive function. You will increase your attention, your reflexes, your reaction time and your coordination. You will also find it easier to learn and process new information.

The optimal training plan for an esports athlete should be as complete as possible, in order to achieve an overall good fitness level. It will include different exercises and modalities to achieve a higher performance.


I will put my education, my knowledge and my experience at your service to help you improve in any aspects related to sport science. Here below you can see a list of possible services I offer as a consultant.

TRAINING: identification of the correct training methods for any purpose, looking at the current scientific literature and evidences. Following an evidence-based approach would help you avoid wasting time with incorrect training, leading to better results in the long term.

MONITORING: being able to correctly monitor the athletes is fundamental to understand if and how the athletes are improving. Short and long term monitoring is an important part of any training process, that guarantees you will not lose track of your athletes' progresses.

TESTING & ASSESSMENTS: testing and assessing the athletes can be difficult, because the choice of the test and the modalities can affect the outcome. Each test should be properly done, to ensure the data is correct.
