Where will training innovations come from? Will training in the future resemble training in the past or will it look significantly different? Is innovation in training even necessary? If innovation and change in training do occur what will those changes be? What will they look like? I have no answers to these questions, that’s for sure, I broke my crystal ball years ago and the Ouija board is not working. In doing research for a project I am working on the past few weeks I have been struck by how similar what we do today is to what was done thirty, forty, even fifty years ago. Certainly we have progressed, but how far? We know more in terms of sport science, facilities are better, performances appear to be better so how can we get better? Will science lead the way or will it be the practitioner? Will it be technology driven or human factors driven? What will training look like in 2050?
