Clean Sleeping: Enhancing Athletic Performance with SleepAngel at the Movistar Team's Training Camp

At the heart of every successful athlete's regimen lies a critical yet often overlooked component: quality sleep. The Movistar Team, renowned for its excellence in cycling, understands this fundamental truth.

Since 2019, they have welcomed the SleepAngel team to their training camp to make sure all of their riders and staff to take part in SleepAngel pillow fitting session, highlighting the pivotal role a clean sleeping environment plays in optimising athletic performance.

For the 2024 season the Movistar Team prepared for new season near Calpe and our R&D director Lyane Lind met with the team members so they can choose their new SleepAngel pillow for their best rest and recovery at home and while travelling.

The Importance of Quality Sleep for Athletes

Athletes push their bodies to the limits, demanding peak performance day in and day out. Yet, amidst the rigours of training, recovery often takes a back seat. This is where sleep emerges as the unsung hero, providing the essential foundation for physical and mental restoration. For the Movistar Team, recognising the significance of sleep in their athletes' success prompted a quest for innovative solutions.
