Thank you Marty Grabijas for the review article, pleasure working with you and we will see you for the post-winter testing! get you tuned up for Iron Horse Bicycle Classic!

If you could nail down exactly what you needed to do in order to be better at your craft, would you do it? Would you thrive with that level of accountability?

We're extremely fortunate to have the Durango Performance Center at our disposal. For the cost of two new tires, Rotem Moses Ishay will conduct metabolic physiological testing, and provide a plan that will take you on a path of improvement.

Here's a quick story on my experience.

The 4 Key Misconceptions About Sugars and Endurance

It is too often athletes are influenced by the current industry hype and are misinformed regarding how their body actually utilize fats and carbohydrates for different activities.
Here at DPC, we offer a clear evaluation of your personal energy utilization and needs by conducting performance testing. No hypes or assumptions, just an accurate and reliable testing of your personal metabolism, at rest or exercise.
Email or call us if you have any further questions how this can help you towards your goals from all activity spectrum: losing weight, running your first 5k or winning the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic.

Clearing Up The Confusion Endurance athletes put a strong emphasis on their training programs, their equipment, and their nutrition to ensure they reach their goals. First Endurance consults daily with endurance athletes, primarily on nutrition and how to best fuel your body for long distance racing...

Muscle Cramps: Causes and Remedies Based on Latest Science

Summer is approching!
Training and competing at high altitudes and heat can bring higher fatigued muscle states, and greater risk for muscle cramps. Here's a great summary article about the latest on exercise-associated muscle cramps. Guess what, low electrolyte and dehydration is probably not the primary cause for your muscle cramps.

Muscle cramps stop athletes in their tracks, but new science has changed our understanding of the causes and remedies for cramps.

For endurance athletes, "field" tests such as 30 minutes time trial or 10k running time are good ways to quickly measure "end-result" progression throughout the racing season. The pre-season is an ideal time now for summer endurance athletes to quantify and qualify their performance in greater physiological depth for appropriate lifestyle/training adaptations.

Physiological testing isn't only for top performing athletes, like TDF winner Chris Froome in this Cyclingnews article. Testing can help busy athletes make the most from their devoted training time.
