Transforming elite sport through sleep and recovery.
Sport Sleep Coach was founded by Nick Littlehales, after many years working within sleep and elite sport, with the aim of providing a simple and achievable technique that any individual can apply to their life for improved sleep. Later named the R90 Technique, this approach has been beneficial in improving not only sleep, but recovery, performance and mood.
The R90 Technique consists of 7 Key Sleep Recovery Indicators (KSRIs) that contribute to an improved sleep approach. Outlined in Nick’s book Sleep, this revolutionary technique has been helping elite athletes, sports teams, high achievers, businesses and individuals all over the world.

Journey to Sleep
Nick Littlehales begins working for Slumberland as an area rep. Nick is promoted to International Sales and Marketing Director due to his unique approach on elevating the importance of sleep.
Created the first UK Sleep Council along with others and was appointed Chairman, with the aim of generating a stronger interest in sleep.
Out of curiosity, Nick contacted Manchester United F.C. to ask what they do for sleep and recovery. Alex Ferguson, the manager at the time, explained that they actually did nothing. This led to Nick working with the clubs manager, physios and doctors to create a sleep approach.
Nick left his job at Slumberland to pursue his Sleep Coach career full time.
British Cycling asked Nick to get involved with their aggregation of marginal gains principle, as sleep was a key factor in this.
Nick Littlehales release his debut book, Sleep.
One third of our lives is spent trying to sleep.
Nick’s fascinating journey to become the world’s leading Elite Sport Sleep Coach and his revolutionary R90 Technique is encapsulated in a book called SLEEP “The Myth of 8 hours the power of Naps and the New Plan to Recharge Your Body and Mind”.

The aggregation of marginal gains’, which means if you can improve a tiny amount across 10 different areas, that adds up to a considerable improvement over the opposition. It means pulling apart everything and trying to identify best practice, from the smallest detail on a bike to the pillows cyclists sleep on.
