Fitness Assessments for Multi Sport Athletes with David Dallaire Bsc Kin. – Certified Exercise Physiologist

Fitness Assessments are an important link to discovering what your present level of fitness is at so we can start setting measurable training goals. Using blood lactates and the new Moxy Monitor we can see the different levels of muscle oxygen saturation you have and when so we can determine what power levels and speeds you should be training at. This invaluable training tool assures that you are less likely to over train or under train. After a few months of smart training you will be able to see your measurable improvements!
Fitness assessments are done on your own bike with a Compu Trainer at the Team Triumph assessment centre at the Ottawa Athletic Club. Members and Non Members are welcome!

Sports Nutrition Coaching with Ashlen Leonard (Sports Nutritionist – Registered Dietician Nutritionist)

Seriously, you can train all you like but if your nutrition is not where it should be, you are not maximizing your results! We understand that nutrition can be one of the hardest and complicated parts of excellent multi sport training. That’s why we offer Nutrition Coaching services to our clients who struggle knowing what to eat and when to eat it. We provide you with tips on grocery shopping, meal planning, easy recipes for meals and snacks, and ongoing weekly support and motivation from a certified dietician.
If you are looking to shed those extra pounds while also learning how to effectively keep the weight off, this is the program for you! A workout regimen with no nutrition plan is pointless; everyone needs to nourish their body with foods that are going to help keep you strong and healthy! You will have a newfound confidence in every day decisions about healthy eating and nutrition.
