Performance-Enhancing Services

Massage Therapy

Though often overlooked, massage is one of the best forms of recovery. In addition to providing a welcome relaxation after tough workouts or races, massage speeds the healing process by increasing circulation. This improved blood flow aids recovery by replacing metabolic wastes in stressed muscle tissue with therapeutic oxygen and much-needed nutrients. Let Massage Therapist Suzie Lindberg of Well Beings Massage help you find relaxation, recovery, and enhanced well-being. For more information, contact Suzie at suzie@wellbeingsboise.com.

Nutrition Packages

Although research clearly shows that a properly balanced nutritional program will significantly boost athletic performance, many athletes still place food well below physical training on the scale of importance. Kris Hilvers, MS, RD, LD, CNSD will help you achieve your best performance ever!

  • Basic Service Nutritional consultation and meal plan
  • Premiere Service Nutritional consultation, meal plan, and 4 weeks of diet review
  • Follow-up Service 4 weeks of diet review

For more information, contact Kris at khilvers@cableone.net.

Sport Psychology and Individual Counseling

Are you as mentally prepared for your next event as you can be? Have you been regularly practicing such performance-enhancing techniques as relaxation, visualization, and goal-setting? If not, you are not alone! Despite the common usage of mental preparation techniques with professional and Olympic athletes, many amateur athletes still remain unfamiliar with the benefits of including mental training in their workouts.

Dr. Greg Mondin, Ph.D. would like to change this. If you’re ready to take your training to the next level, he is ready to help you!

Physical Therapy, Injury Treatment, and Performance-Enhancement Services

Endurance athletes know that aches and pains come with the training territory. Smart endurance athletes, however, get those aches and pains treated so that they don’t turn into full-blown injuries! Having a good physical therapist on your side is essential to staying healthy and maintaining a consistent training program.

Therapeutic Associates Physical Therapy (Parkcenter and Nampa locations) offers a wide range of modalities that can keep your training moving forward. Matt Booth at Parkcenter and Derek Stiegemeier at Nampa are both triathletes so they fully understand the needs and mentality of endurance athletes. Therapeutic services offered include Augmented Soft-Tissue Mobilization (ASTYM).

In addition to therapy, Therapeutic Associates offers performance-enhancement services which will you do your sport easier, faster, and more efficiently. These services include: Pilates/Core Stabilization classes, CycleFit (customized bike fitting), and Cycling Spin technique training.

If you’re a Performance High client you receive:

  • 10% off performance enhancement services
  • Free injury screenings – this includes a brief assessment along with options for self-treatment, physical therapy, and/or referral to other healthcare providers as needed

For more information, contact Matt at mbooth@taiweb.com or Derek at dereks@taiweb.com.

Blood Lactate Testing and Cycling Training

When it comes to individualizing training programs, blood lactate tests provide critical information. For newer athletes, lactate is simply that nasty little substance that makes the muscles burn at higher intensities. For more serious athletes, however, lactate becomes the “holy grail” of training guides. It defines how well the aerobic system has developed, it distinctly shows how much fatigue or stress the athlete is experiencing, and it tells when to implement higher intensity training. In other words, a blood lactate test takes the guesswork out of designing a training program!

Douglas Tobin at Endurance Training and Fitness Center is the go-to guy for blood lactate testing. If you’re a Performance High client, he is offering special pricing on testing (for bike and run):

  • 1 Test (bike or run) $90.00 (regularly $100)
  • Package of 3 Tests $240.00
  • Package of 6 Tests $435.00

Additionally, Douglas has a whole fleet of Computrainers that you can hook your bike to. Once hooked up you can ride various race courses around the world, you can work on your spinning efficiency, or you can plug in your workout specifics (heart rate ranges, wattage ranges, etc.) so you don’t have to miss your workout just because of the nasty weather!
