Please provide a few thoughts on working with high performance athletes:

Working with high performance athletes can be a great challenge, but can also be extremely rewarding. The pressure is very high for these athletes to perform consistently at a high level.They have some of the busiest schedules you can think of, with travel, competitions, and often school/work obligations.  As a service provider, staying on top of all that information is key to having success.
