Physiology Geek Friday

Welcome Back 

The holidays are here and its that special time of year when the roads are a mess and your health takes a back seat, or maybe it gets thrown in the trunk. Dr. Sprouse talked with Abby Ham of WBIR earlier this week about how to maintain fitness and health through the holidays. You can watch his interview HERE. 

Aside from maintaining local celebrity status on the news we've been busy working on new service packages and maintaining our own health here at Podium. 

What We're Doing

I recently took Dr. Sprouse through a movement screen. Based on his results and goals I put together a strength training program. The offseason is the perfect time to work on strength while your miles, and the temperatures, are low. Keep an eye out for a more in-depth blog series covering the program. Well discuss his goals, the result of his screen, and the rational behind the exercises. 

 

Whats Coming up in the New Year

We're excited to launch new packaged services for the months of January and February. With the New Year comes new goals, resolutions, and new races. Start your year off on the right foot and prime yourself for success. We are offering two packages complete with a sizable discount. Each package includes a consultation with Dr. Sprouse, blood panels and an assortment of other services. Details about the different packages can be found HERE

What We're Testing

We have been experimenting with different uses of the previously mentioned Leomo. They've been a great group of people to work with during the trial period and the device provides a wealth of data, we're just trying to figure out what to do with it all. In the meantime we're testing it out with bike fits and training rides to build our confidence with the device. Aside from looking sleek, the Type-R looks like it'll be staying at Podium.

Whats New

Alongside the Performance Lab and Movement screens I have recently expanded into offering personal training services at Podium. I have a focussed approach to training and have experience working with athletes from recreational to age groupers to the collegiate level. We consider anyone who moves an athlete, just different levels. If you're interested in learning more about training at Podium, information can be found HERE

In addition to training I recently completed the Precision Nutrition Level 1 certification. I am excited to work nutrition coaching into my training packages. Keep an eye out for upcoming promotions as the new year approaches.
