Looking after and maintaining your body while training and racing is an important part of your training program. Tri-Alliance works very closely with Lakeside Sports Medicine Centre to care for and look after the body management needs of all our athletes.
Body management can be the difference between performing at your peak, and running your body into the ground. At Tri-Alliance, we encourage our athletes to listen to their bodies when it comes to training and recovery – and our partners Lakeside Sports Medicine Centre and Shotz Nutrition can help you stay on top of your fitness and help you reach your optimal performance.
Lakeside Sports Medicine Centre
Lakeside Sports Medicine Centre is conveniently located close to the CBD at the iconic Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, part of Melbourne’s first class Sports Hub on Aughtie Drive, Albert Park.
Our sports medicine clinic offers patients access to a multidisciplinary team of highly trained health professionals. Treating specialists are committed to providing quality sports medicine whether it be for the elite athlete or members of the general public.
We aim to provide our patients with a complete care plan utilizing the various modalities available at our clinic including Sports Medicine, Physiotherapy, Podiatry, Myotherapy, Dietetics and consulting Orthopedic Surgeons. With this multidisciplinary approach we aim to tailor our programs to suit the individual no matter the issue.
We regularly treat a range of conditions from acute sporting injuries to chronic pain symptoms as well as assisting patients with rehabilitation.
Lakeside Sports Medicine Centre is also involved in driving sports medicine research in the areas of tendinopathy and osteoarthritis management.
This ensures our clinicians look to develop treatment pathways that reflect the latest approaches in care, keeping us at the forefront of sports medicine in Melbourne.
Body Management Assessment
Winter is often the hardest time to stay on track with your training and over-indulging in comfort foods can easily occur if you don’t have goals and incentives to remain on track. Keep your health, fitness and training on track over winter!
If any of your stepping stones to your goals include losing weight, reaching your ‘race weight’, eating better, improving your health and fitness and staying motivated, then our new Body Management Assessments are for you.
Body Management Assessment Breakdown
These Assessments aim to provide you with the knowledge, information and guidance to ensure your health (weight / body fat) and nutrition is on track to reaching your goals.
- We calculate your body fat percentage through measurements including height, weight, girth and skin folds. An explanation on how you compare to the average person, active person and an athlete.
- We calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (calories consumed at rest) and Active Metabolic Rate (calories consumed when factoring in your activity levels). This assists you in working on a healthy eating plan.
- Calculate and explain your training zones to assist in reaching your health, fitness and training goals. These zones will become important for you to understand and monitor according to your goals.
Knowing your body fat is more important than knowing body ‘weight’. Two people of the same height and weight can look and perform vastly different simply because of their body fat percentage. Body fat is dead weight, unlike lean muscle, it doesn’t help you move, but instead hinders movement (and therefore your performance!).
Your initial consultation and assessment will take approximately 60min, your remaining assessments approximately 30min.
- Body Fat Percentage and how this compares to what you would like to achieve
- Basal & Active Metabolic Rates – knowing how much to consume to reach your goals.
- Training Zones based on your current training period and goals (heart rate and perceived effort)
For maximum benefit we recommend 4 assessments over 4 months and this is why we have provided a 4 session assessment package. This allows us to track your progress and ensure you are on moving towards your goals.
