Human Resources

Athletes will always work with professionals, generally top notch, and will fully enhance their recovery. “The media comes first,” physiotherapist Marco Aurelio Toral highlights. “Amateur athletes have to go to a clinic, see a doctor, a physiotherapist or a physical trainer, and a lot of times they don’t have these things, or just these things.
