Superfit Medical Center welcomes athletes with professional services and top equipment!
Superfit Medical Center services dedicated to athletes
⇒ SPORTS MEDICINE
It is very important that when you start training constantly that you do a series of tests and medical investigations to make sure that everything is fine. A sports medical consultation will show you if your health condition allows you to run and what aspects you need to take care of.
If you are a member of a sports club, this consultation must be done periodically.
⇒ SPORTS NUTRITION
Through our sports nutrition program you will learn to balance the ratio of carbohydrates, proteins and fats in your favor, so that you have the best performance in what you do. With the help of personalized food recommendations, you will more easily support the effort during training and competitions and you will recover faster.
Sports nutrition consulting is provided by Dr. Şerban Damian, CIO-accredited sports nutritionist.
⇒ PERFORMANCE TESTS
Periodically, at Superfit you can check your fitness through performance tests, such as cardiometabolic testing, gait and running analysis, lactate analysis, baropodometry, body composition analysis. Based on the results, you will find out where you still have to work to improve your running performance or you can see how you have progressed over time.
⇒ EFFORT RECOVERY
When you have a busy training program and go to many races, cold compression sessions, lymphatic drainage, deep oscillation, percussion therapy or electrostimulation will help you recover faster after the effort, to give 100% to each contest you participate. You will get rid of muscle fever and fatigue faster.
⇒ MEDICAL RECOVERY
Endurance running sometimes results in injuries. We know that it is unpleasant to “sit on the bar”, so at Superfit we have invested in the best equipment to make your recovery as easy and fast as possible. Physiotherapy, Tecar therapy, cold compression and taping are just some of the technologies at Superfit that accelerate the body’s healing and recovery. Hyaluronic acid infiltrations will protect your joints from wear and tear and eliminate pain and discomfort.
⇒ PHYSICAL TRAINING
In addition to running, it is good to do other types of training to develop your muscles, mobility and endurance, so that you can support the effort during the 42km. At Superfit you can train efficiently, including different equipment than those usually available in gyms.
For example, if you are preparing for a mountain marathon (but not only), hypoxia training, which simulates altitude conditions, will increase your endurance and develop your lungs and diaphragm. Physiotherapy and proprioception training improve your mobility and balance, reducing the risk of injury.
⇒ SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY
In addition to the physical challenges, athletes might have some mental challenges that could make the finish line harder to cross. Sports psychological counseling sessions will give you extra confidence and motivation to follow the training program and set yourself mentally for success.
