Recovery Pump Recovery Boots

Recovery Pump

Using them helps! The system gradually fills from foot to upper thigh to push out build up and then releases to allow blood to flush through. This repeats over and over for the duration of your session. Here are the applications:

  • Before a Massage- 15-30min before your massage, the Recovery Boots will allow your body to be warmed up, lose and have less edema to make for an efficient & more effective massage
  • Before a workout- 15-30min before a workout will reduce the warmup time that often is needed  by warming up the legs and flushing out post workout build up
  • After a massage- 15-30min will help you flush out the toxins that often build up after the massage and lead to soreness
  • After a workout- 20-30min will help you flush out the toxins and edema that build up and delay recovery leading to reduced quality and number of good of workouts
  • Middle of day- 40-60min in the middle of the day will help your recovery from the last workout. Your body has built up toxins and edema from your workouts, limiting what you can do in the future

New Leaf Metabolic Exercise & Resting Testing System

New Leaf

 

Exercise Metabolic Rate
http://www.racermateinc.com

Determine current heart rate training zones and fuel efficiency. The EMR assessment can be done on a bike or a treadmill and will answer the following questions:

  • How many calories  you burn while exercising
  • How well  you burn fat (for performance or weight loss goals)
  • How should you train to meet your future goals
  • How should you train in order to prevent injuries and bonking
What is an EMR Assessment?
It’s an exercise test, routinely done on Olympic and professional athletes, which helps maximize your performance. The cardiovascular system’s ability to utilize fuel will be measured by the assessment. Individual Heart Rate Training Zones can be determined from the test. Heart rate training zones are established for recovery periods, endurance training, and intense training. These zones are based on the client’s/athlete’s fitness level and genetics, not on age and gender.

How is EMR measured?
You can either run on a treadmill, use an elliptical, or use your bike on a trainer. This assessment usually lasts around 10 – 15 minutes depending on the individual. The sterile mask, purchased with the EMR assessment, is yours to keep for future assessments.

What do I get with the assessment?
A detailed and highly accurate report of the status of your cardiovascular fitness as well as your training zones will be compiled immediately after the assessment. This data is useful for 6-12 weeks as fitness increases. A personalized workout routine in the form of a personalized training plan can then be designed based on the EMR results.

Resting Metabolic Rate
http://www.racermateinc.com

Nutrition and physical exercise are two key components of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Understanding your resting metabolism can help you manage your caloric requirements along with exercising. The RMR assessment will help you understand:

  • How many calories  you burn at rest
  • How many calories  you should consume to lose, gain, or maintain a healthy weight
  • How many calories  you should eat while exercising
What is the Resting Metabolic Rate Assessment?
Your RMR or resting metabolic rate represents the calories your body uses to maintain vital body functions (heart rate, brain function, breathing). In simple terms, it is the number of calories a person would burn if awake, but at rest, all day without any activity or exercise.

How is RMR measured?
It is a simple assessment lasting about 10 minutes which involves breathing into a sterile mask while your oxygen consumption is measured. The higher your resting metabolic rate, the more calories you burn. This test is a great way to measure the effectiveness of your current nutrition and exercise program. No more averages or guessing about how many calories you should consume, since estimates could be off by 500 calories above or below your actual need.

What do I get with the assessment?
Your results are immediate and include the following:

  • How many calories you burn at rest
  • Rating of your metabolism as normal, slow, or fast
  • Guidelines to assist you in reaching your goal weight

Fitbit Affilate

Fitbit

You have seen the results on NBC’s The Biggest Loser.  Now The Fitness Pursuit is offering you the chance to use a device that has helped so many people better understand their personal nutrition and fitness needs.

How it Works: An individual will wear the Fitbit most of the day (yes, even while sleeping) and will periodically download the data to a computer program and/or phone application that helps track calorie expenditure while offering a daily calorie log. By monitoring the daily calorie deficit or surplus, an individual can more accurately track progress towards reaching a particular body composition goal. While you are welcome to purchase the equipment and coach yourself, TFP believes that the online dotFIT Program with Fitbit device is even more effective. Order your Fitbit Products here.

Power Plate Vibration Platform Training

Powerplate

TFP has two platforms. Vibration training causes instability in the body. As a result, your muscles automatically contract at the same rate of vibration to regain stability, working more muscles in less time.  The platform is also use for stretching. When you stretch using vibration you will be able to go considerably further. With a regular regime you will see a difference in your range of motion. Non-invasive massage is also another use. You can  put your body on the platform, like calves, quads, hamstrings, glute and ITB and use the vibration to give a massage at the pressure and vibration desired. You can read more here.

TFP is apart of the Ironman Triclub Program. We get points for our races and incentives that will be shared with our athletes.
