About the Peak Performance newsletter

Peak Performance is a subscription-only newsletter for athletes and coaches, featuring the latest research from the sports science world. It was established in 1990 by champion runner and many times gold medal winner Sylvester Stein, and is published 16 times a year, including four special issues.

We have over 20 years of experience at sports science publishing and also publish the massively successful newsletter Sports Injury Bulletin. All of our writers are fully qualified and highly respected members of the international athletics, sports science and coaching communities.

I really think that your newsletters are wonderful and give a lot of useful information. I am also considering a career in coaching track and field so your newsletters are going to be pretty useful. Keep on doing your great work!
