Former LPGA Tour Winner Maggie Will Discovers The Juvent Micro-Impact Platform as a Pain Relief Breakthrough and Performance Enhancer


Riviera Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 31, 2015

Juvent Sports (http://www.juventsports.com) recently presented its latest offerings at the 2015 PGA Merchandise show in Orlando. At the show, former LPGA golf great and current LPGA Legends Tour player Maggie Will was interviewed and she shared the life-changing physical improvements and pain relief she has been experiencing since she began integrating the Juvent Pro Micro-Impact Platform™ into her morning and evening regimens. The Juvent has been so instrumental to her chronic back pain recovery that it has even allowed her to get back into competitive golf after a 7 year hiatus and join the LPGA Legends Tour. Equally impressive is that in only her 2nd event on the tour, Maggie posted a Top 10 finish at Legends Championship in late 2014.

In the interview, Maggie Will explained how she was first introduced to the Juvent Micro-Impact Platform from her past coach and swing trainer, David Leadbetter. After trying it initially for just 4 days she noticed reductions in her back pain, improvements in her mobility and swing flexibility and even changes in her appetite, surprisingly finding herself craving less sugar. Prior to discovering Juvent, Maggie had pretty much given up playing competitive golf as the post-round back pain she experienced would sideline her for 10-12 days after just a single day of golf on the course. “Now it’s like a vitamin that I depend on every day. I use it 20 minutes every morning and it wakes me up and gets me going. I also use it 20 minutes in the evening and it feels like it helps me heal from the day. I am sleeping well, I love it.” said Ms Will.

Peter Simonson, President of Juvent said, “Maggie’s success with the Juvent Micro-Impact platform is very rewarding to hear. Everyone at Juvent is very excited about our product and the ability of our multi-patented micro-impact technology to help reinvigorate the golf games of not only professionals like Maggie Will but more importantly its helping the weekend-golfers across the county continue playing their favorite sport pain-free.”

An FDA Registered Class I medical exercise and rehabilitation device, the Juvent Pro delivers thousands of low-magnitude and high-frequency micro-impact pulses that enter through the heels of the feet and move up the entire body. These micro-impacts uniquely stimulate the body’s muscles and bones promoting circulation, joint health and healing. Users simply stand on the Juvent for as little as 10 minutes per day and many start feeling results within days. Recommended and used by world-renowned trainers, doctors, physical therapists, and chiropractors, the Juvent Pro is changing the way athletes are approaching training and recovery.

Juvent also works with The David Leadbetter Golf Academy and is an Official Proud Partner of the NFL Alumni Association (NFLA). Juvent is a Corporate Advisory Roundtable Member of the National Osteoporosis Foundation

Octane Fitness and Twin Cities Orthopedics Sponsor Team USA Minnesota and Performance Training


BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (PRWEB) February 26, 2015

Committed to delivering the best performance training products and programs for exercise and athletics, Octane Fitness, LLC and Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO) have partnered as a silver level sponsor of Team USA Minnesota. Founded in 2001, Team USA Minnesota is dedicated to training post-collegiate distance runners to compete at elite levels, including Olympic participation, from distances of 800/1500 meters to the marathon.

“We are very excited to welcome Twin Cities Orthopedics and Octane Fitness as a silver level sponsor of Team USA Minnesota,” said Pat Goodwin, Team USA Minnesota president and founder. “This unique partnership provides our athletes with a wide range of health, preventative and training support, along with innovative equipment like the Zero Runner, at TCO’s new state-of-the-art facility in Eden Prairie.”

Using Octane Fitness’ unique Zero Runner, the physicians and physical therapists at TCO will provide complimentary gait analysis and performance-enhancing regimens to Team USA Minnesota athletes at the new TCO Sports Medicine Center in Eden Prairie, Minn.

“Octane’s mission is to fuel athletes and exercisers with the absolute best products that deliver results,” said Tim Porth, the EVP of product development and marketing. “As a Minnesota-based company, we are proud that our Zero Runner plays a role in boosting the performance of Team USA Minnesota athletes and the clients of TCO.”

“Having leaders in health care and training equipment collaborating and discovering new ways to reduce and prevent injuries in our best athletes will carry over into how we care for the everyday athlete, the prospective college athlete, and the people trying to prioritize their health and wellness,” said Chris Bailey, director of therapy at TCO.

To kick off the relationship, Team USA Minnesota athletes will share tips to run like the pros at the grand opening of TCO at 12982 Valley View Road in Eden Prairie, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, February 28. The athletes will be available from 12 p.m.-2 p.m. The event also includes performance demos for golf, hockey, throwing and weightlifting; presentations from TCO clinicians on nutrition, injuries and sports medicine; and prizes and giveaways.

Zero-Impact Running

Unlike any other training machine, the Zero Runner has mechanical hip and knee joints that precisely replicate human biomechanics in running, with independent pedals that allow runners to utilize their natural running gait, just like outside. Users completely control their stride and pace, and the Zero Runner follows the runner’s movement through the initiate, pull-through, lift and extension phases.

For athletes, as well as recreational runners, the Zero Runner offers multiple benefits:

    Run without impact – runners can add mileage without risking overuse and injury
    Race preparation – longer runs can combine miles outside with Zero workouts to maximize stamina, maintain form and reduce impact
    Active recovery – the Zero Runner enhances conditioning but eliminates joint stress and “junk miles”
    Cross training – CROSS CiRCUIT®, which blends running with strength training and flexibility intervals enables runners to address weak links
    Longer career – the Zero Runner removes the harmful pounding that can limit longevity

Octane Fitness Background

Relentlessly fueled to reinvent zero-impact cardiovascular exercise, Octane Fitness has perfected the elliptical machine, introduced a new category with the xRide® recumbent elliptical, designed strength-infused cardio with the unique CROSS CiRCUIT®, created exercise in a new direction with the LateralX®, reinvented running with the Zero Runner® and is leading smarter training with SmartLink™. Defined by standout innovations, and driven to deliver more effective, efficient and rewarding workouts, Octane is engineering elliptical domination.

Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) February 03, 2015

Founder Joe Kudla, and collaborating athlete Chris Miller, a pro skateboarder and action sports industry veteran, describe their new brand, Vuori, as a modern men’s performance line that is inspired by the coastal California lifestyle. It is an integration of yoga, surf, sport, art and life. “Vuori is functional high performance apparel that will get you through the rest of your day in style and comfort,” says key collaborator Chris Miller.

After numerous conversations on the active market Joe and Chris realized that the male customer looking for great looking performance clothing is really underserved as so many companies are focused on the women’s market. Athletes ranging from those that practice yoga, surfers, runners, climbers, and cross-fit enthusiasts all mentioned that they did not want to sacrifice style for performance but often had to choose between the two. This was the inspiration behind the brand, to create a line that was built to move and sweat in but transitioned into everyday life in a seamless way with a style that guys actually want to wear.

Vuori has assembled a great team of investors and Board of Directors that are part of the optimistic and healthy lifestyle, including musician Jason Mraz. Industry veterans, Rich Rodstein, formerly CEO of K2 and Michael Magerman, founder of Odyssey Golf are investors and will sit on the board of directors as well. Rounding out the executive team is Nikki Sakelliou, who will lead Vuori’s marketing team. Sakelliou previously lead the marketing efforts for prAna and has deep roots in the surf and skate markets, as does the rest of the creative team. Apparel designer Rebecca Bray previously lead the design efforts for RipCurl and Ashworth and the brand is currently working with newly launched creative agency, Wander and Echo.

Vuori’s Spring collection has just launched and is currently available in outdoor and surf specialty shops, high-end gyms and yoga studios as well as on-line.

Catalyst Golf Performance Opens The Corazon Golf Performance Center in Dublin, OH

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 11, 2014

Catalyst Golf Performance — a comprehensive and integrated golf instruction, coaching and fitness operation — is opening its first facility outside Chicago at The Club at the Corazon in Dublin, Ohio on January 3.

The Corazon Golf Performance Center, powered by Catalyst Golf Performance, will bring a new level of detail, comprehension, technology, and coaching expertise to the Columbus golf community. Catalyst Golf Performance offers integrated programs that involve a personalized blend of golf coaching, fitness training, equipment fitting, and other services such as diet and nutrition coaching, sports performance coaching, and rehabilitation. Catalyst satisfied golfers are of all ages and ability levels from beginners to top PGA Tour and ReMax World Long Drive champions.

“Our coaching programs at Catalyst Golf Performance are the most effective way for any golfer to improve because we take the time to truly figure out why each specific player is not accomplishing their goals before we develop that players personalized program, “ says Mike Napoleon, Managing Partner and Director or Golf Instruction for Catalyst. “We then use specific and structured practice strategies to help the player improve any deficiencies we find during our assessment process.”

The Catalyst Golf Performance game assessment process involves much more than a typical golf lesson:

    The process starts with a detailed interview with the player to determine his goals and history with the game of golf.
    After this, the player undergoes a comprehensive physical fitness assessment to determine all the characteristics of that player’s body.    
    Next is an assessment with the TrackMan Launch Monitor System to find exactly how the ball and club interact on a typical shot for the player.
    A 3D biomechanics assessment determines how a player’s body moves in detail and how the player transfers energy during the swing.
    The player’s short game skills and equipment are also assessed during this process.

“Catalyst is one of the most exciting offerings we can provide our members. The organization has a proven track record and stellar reputation for improving its clients’ performance no matter their skill level or age,” says Andrew Brennanwoods, Director of Sales and Marketing at the Club at Corazon. “We are thrilled to open this performance center so our members can get a head start on their golf season.”

Catalyst has enjoyed a number of successes this year:

    In January, it opened its Lincoln Park Performance Center, the first and only all-encompassing, world-class and Tour-caliber indoor golf performance center in Chicago featuring virtual golf simulation. The Center is a one-stop operation for golf instruction, coaching, physical fitness and rehabilitation, club fitting and repair, practice and indoor virtual golf simulation, all housed in a 7,500 sq. ft. facility.
    One of its Catalyst Long Drive team members and student Connor Powers, after only seven months of Catalyst training, qualified for the Elite Eight in the ReMax Long Drive Championship Finals. Long Drive team member Eddie Fernandes won a regional ReMax championship.
    One of the company’s newest trainers – Jeff Flagg – won the ReMax Long Drove Championship.
