Peak Performance

The Anaheim Ducks are an NHL team based in Anaheim, California. The Anaheim Ducks have won the Pacific division every year since the 2012-2013 season and have made the Western Conference championship two of the last three years.

Mark Fitzgerald is the strength and conditioning coach for the Anaheim Ducks and the owner of Elite Training Systems, a high-performance training center catered to athletes. His philosophy is improving player performance through training, nutrition, and rest. The NHL season is physically demanding and hectic.

After referrals from trusted sources and self-experimentation, Fitzgerald found his solution in the InBody.


OPEX Fitness is Changing the Face of Fitness with InBody

Update: Since the time of this article’s original publishing, RMCRI has rebranded as the University of Northern Colorado Cancer Rehabilitation Institute. Their new website can be found here.

It used to be common knowledge: when you ended chemotherapy or radiation treatment, you went home to rest and recover. It made sense. Chemotherapy and radiation can be aggressive treatments that take a toll on the body, so rest was believed to be the most logical and practical way to recover from cancer treatments.

However, the specialists at the Rocky Mountain Cancer Rehabilitation Institute (RMCRI) believe that there’s a better way: using exercise to combat the harsh side effects of cancer treatments in order to rebuild their patients’ quality of life.

“There are serious, deleterious side-effects and toxicities as a result of cancer and cancer treatments. The positive benefits of exercise completely offset and attenuate these effects,” says Jessica Brown, Clinical Coordinator at RMCRI.

Founded in 1996 as an entity of the College of Natural and Health Science at the University of Northern Colorado, RMCRI believes that more than anything, cancer survivors want to live normal lives again. For many, that means performing tasks as simple as going grocery shopping, doing the laundry, or playing with their children or grandchildren.
