Superfit Medical Center services dedicated to cyclists
⇒ SPORTS MEDICINE
It is very important that when you start training constantly to 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 train safely 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 training and cycling races. With the help of personalized food recommendations, you will more easily support the effort during training and competitions and you will recover faster. You will find out which nutritional supplements you can use safely and with scientifically proven effects.
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, lactate analysis, 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.
With the help of cardiometabolic testing and lactate analysis you will be able to establish your effort zones, anaerobic threshold and you will find out your VO2max.
⇒ 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
Cycling races can sometimes leave you with 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 the classic workouts on the bike, it is good to do other types of workouts to develop your muscles, mobility and endurance, so that you can support the specific effort. At Superfit you can train efficiently, including different equipment than those usually available in gyms.
Hypoxia training, which simulates altitude conditions is also very useful for competitive cyclists. It will increase your resistance to exertion and develop your lungs and diaphragm. Physiotherapy and proprioception training training improve your mobility and balance, reducing the risk of injury.
⇒ SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY
In addition to the physical challenges, the cycling races are full of mental challenges, which you must manage as well as possible to reach the finish line. Sports psychological counseling sessions will give you extra confidence and motivation to follow the training program and set yourself mentally for success.
