St. Anthony's Sports Medicine Lecture Provides Tips on Working Out Smarter, Not Harder

 

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Oct. 25, 2010) -Working out does not have to take a lot of time out of the day.  St. Anthony's sports medicine experts will share a new way to increase health and fitness with shorter, more effective exercise routines during "Work Out Smarter, Not Harder," a sports medicine lecture on high level performance testing.

Lecture attendees will learn how to incorporate their results from a one-of-a-kind performance test with an effective exercise program for maximum results. Demonstrations of the new testing equipment offered by the Carillon Wellness Center will be available.  Attendees will receive a 15% discount for future Performance Testing services.    

Tests offered by the high performance testing equipment include measurement of the amount of oxygen an athlete's body takes in while at work and an analysis of the resting metabolic rate helps to determine how many calories to take in to achieve caloric goals.     

Steven Masley, MD, Family Medicine physician and Jay Downing, Fitness Specialist, will present "Work Out Smarter, Not Harder"  The free lecture offers tips on how competitive athletes use advanced performance testing equipment and professional analysis to reach training goals in a shorter period of time.  The sports medicine lecture is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 3 at 5:30 p.m. at St. Anthony's Carillon Outpatient Center.

To register, call (727) 953-9129 or visit StAnthonys.com.  The outpatient center is located at 900 Carillon Parkway, off of Ulmerton Road, near Feather Sound in St. Petersburg.
