Work Out Smarter, Not Harder With Performance Testing
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (January 26, 2011) – The old phrase “No pain, no gain” is a thing of the past. You can work out smarter, not harder, and achieve your goals in a shorter period of time. To help you get on the right track, St. Anthony’s sports medicine experts will share tips during “Work Out Smarter, Not Harder,” a free sports medicine lecture on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 at 5:30 p.m. at St. Anthony’s Carillon Outpatient Center.
Steven Masley, MD, Family Medicine and Jay Downing, MS, ACSM-HFI, certified personal trainer, will be on hand to discuss the benefits of professional analysis and how performance testing can help you reach your goals. Performance testing using state-of-the-art equipment like competitive athletes use is now available at the Carillon Wellness Center.
The performance test measures a person’s maximal oxygen uptake while at exercise levels. It is the criterion measure of aerobic power in athletes and shows at what heart rate the person’s anaerobic threshold (AT) occurs. Knowing the heart rate at which your AT occurs allows you to systematically train leading to enhanced athletic performance for faster times, improved recovery and avoidance of overtraining.
To register, call (727) 953-9127 or visit StAnthonys.com. The outpatient center is located at 900 Carillon Parkway, off of Ulmerton Road, near Feather Sound in St. Petersburg.
