Athletic Performance Testing at Elevation Physicians will teach athlete's at all levels how to train at the correct intensity for each type of workout, optimizing the body's response and giving athlete's the greatest workout efficiency.
Most people work-out too hard. Whether it be weight loss, increasing speed or improving endurance -- the most common assumption we hear from athlete's is "No pain, No gain". Testing your own body's capacitance is the only way to learn the most efficient workout intensities for your unique physiology and get the most out of every workout.
With any structured workout program, each workout should have a specific purpose. To achieve the ideal response from the body, the stimulation must be specific to the desired adaptation and must allow quick recovery for the next key workout. Intensity, more than any other variable, determines the body's response to the training stimulus.
Training efficiently means balancing the cost and benefit of each workout. Every workout has a cost, in terms of recovery. Every workout also increases fitness. Efficient workouts provide training benefits that are worth the recovery cost. Everyone, at any point in time, has certain recovery resources. While smart athletes develop habits to maximize these resources, they will always be finite, and need to be budgeted. Anything that is going to expend these resources needs to provide a proportionate benefit.
So what are you waiting for? Make an appointment today to find your own bodies exercise capacitance!
Elevation Physicians approach to Preventative Medicine is as simple as staying physically active! Physical activity, in combination with a healthy diet, is one of the most powerful medicines for good health. Study after research study consistently promotes the endless benefits of exercise.
Researchers from London, Harvard and Stanford conducted a study to compare the effects of exercise and prescription medication in treating certain chronic conditions, and found physical activity can be just as good as taking a pill when it comes to cardiovascular disease and diabetes. In fact, physical activity was actually found to be more effective than drugs for extending the lifespan of stroke patients.
Physical activity is crucial to the prevention, management, and treatment of numerous chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure and other medical problems.
At Elevation Physicians, we help you get on a path to optimal health by evaluating your individual physiology and prescribing the best exercise formula for you.
