Performance Training Programs
Assessment and training prescriptions for athletes in fitness, golf, hockey/skating, running/walking and throwing.
Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center in Minnesota is expanding to meet growing regional, national and international demand. The expansion, part of a 100,000-square-foot Mayo Clinic Dan Abraham Healthy Living building project, is scheduled to open in spring 2014.
The new space will offer a full range of sports medicine and performance training capabilities to meet the needs of athletes at all levels. Among its features:
- Advanced motion analysis and strength equipment
- Multiple playing surfaces — wood for basketball and volleyball, artificial grass for turf sports, artificial ice for hockey, and lifting platforms specialized to optimize performance
- Premier hockey training equipment — a Woodway Blade Skating Treadmill, as well as equipment designed to build stick-handling and shooting skills
Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center recently partnered with Athletes' Performance, a premiere training organization for elite and high-performing athletes. A team of specialists from Athletes' Performance will work with Mayo Clinic staff to collectively deliver performance programs in the expanded Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center space. The collaboration combines the clinical expertise of Mayo Clinic with the performance solution programming of Athletes' Performance. The two organizations plan to initiate collaborative research projects and educational campaigns around health and wellness, performance training, and the prevention and treatment of concussion and other sport-related injuries.
For nearly 25 years, athletes of all ages and levels have chosen Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center in Minnesota for their health care needs. Whether returning to their sport or optimizing performance, athletes have access to a team of orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, specialty physicians, physical therapists, registered dietitians, athletic trainers, sports psychologists, radiologists and strength coaches. The depth and breadth of the team's expertise, guided by research and fostered by an environment of collaboration, innovation and patient centeredness, combine to help keep athletes at the top of their game.
