in head first and still practices these habits daily. He started with his raw talent, installed a big dose of effort with the right plan and saw real success. The end result was an All-State high school pitcher who achieved his (and his parents’) ultimate goal: A four-year athletic scholarship to college where he gets to play baseball and get a first- rate education, including a master’s degree. From my perspective, not a bad investment of time and resources. Plus, it was fun!

Another story of championship

success involves a professional triathlete participating in our performance optimization program. An initial evaluation by our Elevate Life Wellness team revealed that this successful competitor was utilizing haphazard training methods, and his nutritional status and intake was keeping him from moving to the next level. He suffered from poor recovery issues and experienced unnecessary pain. Six weeks into his new performance enhancement protocol, he has seen measurable gains with an overall 11 percent improvement in his abilities, including speed, endurance,

recovery, strength and function. This seemingly small bump in his performance has already been enough to get him a 3rd place finish in his first race of the season.

Following a “Holistic”

Approach This “holistic,” natural approach to performance improvement produces results. In my practice, I’ve had the benefit of working with a multitude of athletes from triathletes, football, basketball, soccer, baseball, tennis, Mixed Martial Arts fighters, youth sports competitors and regular middle- agers like me. The goal is usually the same for all: Optimize performance with the right plan and approach for that individual. Whether it is a world- class athlete, a high schooler hoping to get a scholarship, or a 55-year-old Type 2 diabetic, improvement and success is the goal. And yes, with the right plan and the right team, these results and improvement can be seen in 90, 120, and 180 days. The right team and the right plan

incorporates physicians, nutrition experts, specialized trainers and

equipment, the right foods, the right eating plan, extensive education classes, specialized treatment and techniques, and more. The result is improved performance, confidence and measurable outcomes, whether you are that world-class athlete, a 13-year-old trying to make their select travel team, or a 35-year-old mother of two wanting to lose 30 lbs and get back into shape. The bottom line is you can definitely win and achieve your fitness and performance goals without cheating.
