Example text

You will learn about the many important tools that help you achieve optimal athletic potential—and keep you healthy and injury-free for many productive years. Commitment and dedication to your sport cannot be accomplished without careful planning. I want to assist you in getting even more from your body. The successful road to training and racing is relatively simple. It includes having a clear strategy with shortand long-term goals, monitoring progress to assure your plan is working and to prevent overtraining, and, of course, proper nutrition.

Endurance athletes include triathletes, runners, cyclists, mountain bikers, swimmers, ultramarathoners, skaters, and cross-country skiers. But others not usually thought of as endurance athletes must possess endurance ability or they will succumb to injury and short athletic life spans. These include basketball, hockey, football, soccer, and baseball players, those involved in racquet sports, and even racecar drivers. I do not necessarily include track-and-field sprinters, downhill skiers, competitive weight lifters, and others in this category of endurance athletes.

I also learned another vital component to my work—that eliminating a simple or serious injury was only half of my job. The other half was knowing how the dysfunction happened and how to prevent its recurrence. This meant understanding how an athlete worked out, taking all the information I learned through my examination and treatment, and using that to make appropriate changes in training and competition. My exposure to more and more runners led me to take up personal coaching, but I made sure that coaching was nothing like the traditional process of giving athletes training schedules and encouraging them to race harder.
