Sleep Optimization for Athletes
As an athlete, particularly a professional athlete, your career depends on your ability to master body and mind to achieve peak performance. You operate in highly competitive, high-stress conditions, and your edge is everything. You face extraordinary expectations to perform at the top of your game, while managing competitive stress, intense training and frequent travel. Top performance requires mastering your physical, mental and emotional conditioning and readiness – all deeply influenced by the quality of your sleep. You need the focus, energy and resilience that optimized sleep can provide. We can help you obtain that.
In addition to keynote speaking at major sports conferences, Dr. Singh has served as a sleep consultant for multiple NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, Olympic and college sports teams, including:
United States National Women’s Soccer Team
MI Amateur Hockey Association
Thanks to Meeta we were able to navigate our way across 4 time zones from Belgium with a detailed timeline that highlighted the appropriate sleep, nap, feeding strategy in preparation for our evening game in Kazakhstan.
Meeta also outlined the need to provide a hotel room for each player that was conducive to sleeping in the daylight hours in Kazakhstan. All rooms were checked for temperature control, blackout blinds, and blue light interference.
We arrived at the game fully prepared and refreshed after our 7h 30min flight. And beat a very physically challenging team.
Throughout my 50+ year career in athletic training, I have always relied on and trusted my team physicians to render exceptional medical advice and counsel.
When Detroit Lions Team Internist, Dr Mike Workings, suggested I meet with Dr. Singh in advance of an upcoming international NFL game in Europe, I eagerly agreed. After an initial interview, I quickly determined that Dr. Singh had the precise knowledge, background, and style needed to connect with not only our players, but also with our coaching staff. As I have said many times, hiring Dr. Meeta Singh as our Sleep Specialist for the Detroit Lions was the best hire I ever made as an athletic trainer!
Meeta is the best sleep specialist in all of Major League Baseball because of her process. She listened and learned about the nuances of the grueling schedule, the overnight plane and bus travel, and the lack of days off and then devised her plan how to maximize sleep and recovery into that program.
Needless to say she hit a HOME RUN! She is a HALL OF FAMER in her field and a truly wonderful person to have on your team!
