Prevent Injury & Optimize Your Performance With Fortius Sport & Health
BC Athletics is excited to renew and expand its ongoing partnership with Fortius Sport & Health to support Athletics athletes in British Columbia by offering BC Athletics members discounts on a host of Lab services, including a state-of-the-art 3DRun/Walk Analysis.
Fortius is an integrated athlete development centre in Burnaby, home to a purpose-built, state-of-the-art human performance lab. Their team of experienced professionals offer applied biomechanics and exercise physiology testing to athletes at all levels of competition.
“Fortius is excited to renew and expand our partnership with BC Athletics to make performance testing and analyses more accessible to more BC athletes,” said Dr. Christopher MacLean, Director of the Fortius Lab and Applied Biomechanics. “From recreational to Olympic levels, our goal is to reduce injury rates, and provide more athletes with the tools they need to optimize their performance.”
The Lab services offered by Fortius are available to athletes at all levels, but BC Athletics strongly recommends that athletes work with their individual coaches to ensure proper implementation. BC Athletics also recommends these services for athletes aged 16 and older.
