Endurance sports require a systematic approach to improving various aspects of physiology and biomechanics to create optimal performance. Peak endurance requires more than simply logging miles and time within a given sport. Higher Endeavors’ focus is on the development of the skills, energy system capabilities, and fueling necessary to create a strong endurance athlete.
Combining the concepts of economy of movement with well developed energy system function within the body are the key focuses of a sound endurance training program. To accomplish this Higher Endeavors works with athletes to refine their existing movement mechanics to develop a more efficient movement pattern that will require less muscular effort and energy demands. Along with that, intensity based training which includes heart rate zone training is utilized to further develop the athletes aerobic and anaerobic capabilities, which improves energy system function.
To further enhance energy system function and overall endurance performance nutritional strategies are addressed to ensure proper nutrient stores within the body are available for peak performance. This includes whole food meals as well as training supplementation strategies.
Along with proper training and nutrition additional recovery methods are addressed as well as general lifestyle habits that will optimize endurance performance.
To further develop a well-rounded athlete endurance program clients have access to weekly Endurance Club activities, weekly yoga classes, and monthly educational workshops.
Lastly, as most endurance programs are focused on a particular race performance, Higher Endeavors will pay for the entry into the chosen event. Additional bonuses are given to individuals that exceed their pre-program goals as they pertain to the event peformance.
