Combining Wellness With Advanced Technology
If you have ever wondered how Olympic and professional athletes get in shape and stay that way, they will tell you that taking care of their bodies is a way of life that combines hard core physical training with an intense focus on nutrition and overall wellness. Great physical performance and physique isn’t achieved by work outs alone; all top athletes understand the balance between what is put in the body and how well the body can perform.
At Shakthi, we’ve developed a leading sports performance program that provides athletes of all ages and levels with the tools needed to reach peak performance. In previous blog posts, we’ve discussed the nutritional aspect of staying in shape as well as what the body needs from a wellness stand point to sustain athletic prowess.
But did you know that Shakthi’s sports program incorporates the most sophisticated training technology that is taking countless athletes to new levels of performance and achievement? That’s right. Shakthi’s team of medical experts have partnered with the experienced and dedicated trainers at 368 Athletics Performance Training Center to not only deliver objective testing and holistic medicine but also sports training and personalized athletic programs utilizing the latest in testing and training technology.
Shakthi’s State-of-the-Art Reaction Performance Lab Helps Athletes Reach New Heights in Fitness
Along with thorough testing and evaluation, we offer training using state-of-the-art technology at our Center to help athletes reach their performance goals. This includes:
- TRAZER – Comprehensive Technology for Athletic Training: The Trazer uses interactive exercise that builds strength, power, balance, coordination, reaction time, speed and stamina. It improves motivation and performance results. In addition, Shakthi utilizes the TRAZER HRA (Health Risk Assessment) technology to provide athletes of all ages with a baseline assessment that provides a snapshot of where the individual is PRIOR to a sports related injury or concussion. After an injury or concussion, TRAZER baseline stats provide objective data needed to assess whether or the not an athlete is able to safely return to game play.
- Makoto Arena: The Makoto Arena does what no other piece of equipment can. Training with it improves first-step speed, reaction time, mental focus, concentration and hand-eye and foot-eye coordination.
- Nexersys: This technology delivers an ideal workout by combining video training with intense striking exercises. Going through the Nexersys program helps to improve an athlete’s power, endurance, speed and mental agility. Workout data is tracked and saved to your profile so that you can track and start progressing from the beginner level to intermediate and advanced workout rounds.
- Power Plate: Power Plate is focused on helping athletes bring optimal physical performance, health and wellness into harmony. This revolutionary training technique delivers harmonic vibration to the body, stimulating a natural reflex. It is high-efficiency training that effectively burns fat, enhances muscle tone, improves balance and increases strength.
Don’t Just Take Our Word for It?
Shakthi’s integrated approach to health includes a thorough look at an athlete’s overall wellness to help improve performance. Here’s what one patient had to say about her journey:
“I met Dr. Rao in December 2013 at a Nutrition for Triathletes seminar. Dr. Rao’s depth and breadth of knowledge on endurance athletes, nutritional needs impressed me from the moment she began to speak. As she described potential nutritional deficiencies athletes could face and how to address them for better performance, I couldn’t help but wonder how many little things we could change about my gut health and diet for performance improvement because of my personal health challenges and struggles with illness and injury.
I visited Dr. Rao for a full evaluation, including a battery of tests both in her office and through a lab. Based on my history and symptoms, she made an initial diagnosis and helped me to craft a plan to improve gut health . The lab results which came back several weeks later confirmed her initial diagnosis and enhanced it by giving increased detail as to the ways my body was functioning optimally and the ways it was lacking. Using this information, she added to my battery of nutritional and health practices.
Within just a couple of weeks of our initial consultation, I noticed improved energy, a reduction (and eventual elimination) of my chronic afternoon headaches, and a marked improvement in recovery from intense and long workout sessions. I attribute these improvements to the dietary changes as well as some recovery practices Dr. Rao recommended. Given how much better I feel already, I intend to maintain the basic principles of the diet (I’ve learned so much about food and how to prepare it!) to continue to see improvement in my health and performance. Now in my ninth year as a professional triathlete, I can say honestly that I have never felt better. Dr. Rao is a genius!”
