This paper attempts to highlight the influence of integrating reflective practice into the training programme of an elite athlete and thus outline the pertinence of reflective practice in the development of athletic performance. A case study with an elite senior level triathlete is presented in order to examine how a structured approach to reflective practice can be incorporated as a method of advancing evaluative skills and increasing levels of self‐awareness. Findings from this case study support the notion that reflective practice can be used to holistically aid athletic performance. Evidence was found for an increase in self‐awareness and evaluative skills, and supports the notion that reflective practice should be considered as a component for athlete development. Consequently, applied sport psychologists must develop their own understanding of reflective practice and the way that it can be integrated into the support services they offer.
