For Triathletes

Beginning Training

Have you just signed-up for a triathlon and need to start training?  Whether it’s your first or your fiftieth race, let us help you get started!  We provide essential tips including: information on footwear, nutrition, and training for your body to help maximize your potential.  At Body Gears Physical Therapy, we will also provide you with invaluable information about your own body gears in order to avoid potential injuries, such as runner’s knee, plantar fasciitis, and anterior hip impingement.  Injuries which are common to new racers include: shoulder pain, calf strains, hip adductor and hamstring pulls, knee pain, stress fractures to the mid and forefoot, and heel pain.  We make sure you have the necessary joint mobility and strength and motor control of your core muscles required to make sure these injuries don’t slow down your training regimen!  It’s hard enough getting race-ready —make it the best journey possible and feel great doing it.

Peak Training

Are you looking for that little bit of something extra to give you the edge over your competitors?  Or are you training and training without seeing a drop in your times for the upcoming race?  We can assess your running, cycling and swimming mechanics.  By changing your postures we can create immediate improvements in your Automatic Core Engagement response. The core response leads to decreased demand through the arms and legs to reduce overuse of the trapezius and quadriceps muscles, thus reducing your fatigue near the end of your training.  We then train your musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems how to efficiently and automatically activate your core during running, cycling and swimming. Performance improves immensely!  Add us to your training regimen so we can help you shave those seconds you deserve!

Injured Racers

Has your training been affected by an injury?  Does some other pain limit your ability to run, swim or cycle at your desired level?  Applying the principles of Functional Manual Therapy®, we will assess for mechanical restrictions (soft tissue and joint issues), neuromuscular control (muscle initiation, strength and endurance), and motor control (automatic coordination of movement).  Why?  To ensure your movement mechanics as efficient as they can be.  This means you can continue training without pain while improving your times.  Prioritize your health and performance and schedule an appointment with one of our highly trained therapists at any Body Gears Physical Therapy clinic.

Start your journey to better physical health.
