I could possibly ask a dietary to set up a proper dietary programme to suit the needs of both of the athletes chosen. Possibly to enhance their fitness level, I could also get in contact with a personal trainer. Personal trainer's role is to help athletes exercise correctly. I could get a personal trainer to set up a programme for both of the athletes to exercise to their suited sport and to stay along or keep up on the track with their dietary programme given by the dietician.
