BC Athletics and Fortius partner to support athletics athletesJuly 13, 2017
BC Athletics and Fortius Sport & Health are excited to announce a new partnership supporting athletics athletes in British Columbia.
Fortius is an integrated athlete development centre in Burnaby, home to a purpose-built, state-of-the-art human performance lab. Their team of experienced professionals offer applied biomechanics and exercise physiology testing to athletes at all levels of competition.
Effective July 2017, BC Athletics members will now receive a discount on five Lab services, including a state-of-the-art 3DRun/Walk Analysis.
“We are very excited to partner with Fortius to provide members of BC Athletics enhanced access to world class biomechanics and exercise physiology testing,” said Chris Winter, BC Athletics Technical Manager for Track & Field. “The services offered by the Fortius Lab can assist and support athletes in injury management, injury prevention, and can serve as a resource for evaluating and monitoring performance.”
The Lab services offered by Fortius are available to athletes at all levels, but BC Athletics strongly recommends that athletes work with their individual coaches to ensure proper implementation. BC Athletics also recommends these services for athletes aged 16 and older.
“We are proud to partner with BC Athletics to support athletes in reaching their highest potential,” said Dr. Chris MacLean, Director of the Fortius Lab and Applied Biomechanics. “Whether their goal is to compete in the Olympics, run in an upcoming marathon, or simply remain active and healthy for life, our team is committed to helping them reach success.”
