USA Weightlifting is pleased to announce that Maximized Living has been named as the exclusive chiropractic partner of USAW.
Through this partnership, key Maximized Living chiropractors will become members of the USA Weightlifting Wellness Advisory Council. These doctors, who meet standards established by Maximized Living and the USA Weightlifting Committee, will provide chiropractic services to weightlifting athletes at domestic and international events.
"Maximized Living has more than a thousand doctors throughout the United States and we are looking forward to working with these experienced chiropractors to bring a new aspect of sports performance to our lifters," said USA Weightlifting CEO Rick Adams.
Maximized Living has a long history of working with elite athletes from a wide array of sports and National Governing Bodies, including wrestling and judo. Through these partnerships, Maximized Living doctors work with coaches, trainers and medical doctors to deliver the most comprehensive and proactive performance program to these leading athletes.
"One of the primary goals of Maximized Living is to get young men and women off the couch, away from their computers, and get them fit. A very key component of measuring good health is your fat to muscle ratio. In a sedentary world, even children have too much fat to muscle and therefore we're experiencing a huge increase in the incidence of cardiovascular disease in kids." declared Dr. Ben Lerner, NY Times Best Selling Author and Co-founder of Maximized Living. "We're certain that by caring for the athletes of USA Weightlifting and encouraging more young people to enter the sport, we're not only helping to create more gold medals, but creating a healthier America."
The outcomes of the program consistently demonstrate:
•Reduced injury rates
•Increased recovery time
•Increased energy and sustained performance
•Enhanced focus and mental clarity
•Extended athlete careers
•Improved training productivity
"I think it's good to have us show both the corporate and performance related benefits. In addition to working with USA Weightlifting's world class athletes, we are committed to supporting grass roots efforts in getting our youth and parents engaged in both the sport and the principles of lifelong wellness," said Maximized Living President Shel Hart. "Maximized Living's comprehensive Wellness Programs and experienced network of North American doctors combined with the discipline and physical/mental conditioning through USA Weightlifting are a winning formula."
