Grande Prairie Gymnastics
Gymnastics is a sport of extreme movement skill and capacity. Athletes in this sport are some of the best movers on the planet. For the past season we have been working with the Grande Prairie Gymnastics Club. During this time we have had the privilege to work closely with the excellent club coaches to help create systems and programming to reduce injury rates. This partnership has been a fantastic opportunity for us to learn about movement variability and progressive skill development training. We are hoping to expand this partnership into the future so we can see these athletes continue to push themselves past their expectations.
GPRC Rock Climbing Wall
Climbing is a wonderful expression of complex human movement. When you climb you get to have fun while you get a fantastic workout; improving strength, endurance, and mobility while performing purposeful movement. For these reasons we sponsored the Peace Country Rock Climbing Championships this year and it was a fantastic event. It was great getting a chance to meet with the participants, assist with onsite injury management, and watch all the wonderful ways our body's can move.
Wolves X-country Running
Running is one of the most important skills we as humans have. We are designed and born to run and arguably the key of our early success on the plant. The Peace Country Wolves Athletic Club is the premier club for competitive distance running: Track, Cross Country and Road in Grande Prairie. As former products of the Peace Country Wolves Athletic Club it was a natural fit for us to assist in injury recovery and prevention for these athletes.
Parkour is another perfect fit for us at Adventure Physiotherapy. We love natural, beautiful, purposeful, and skilled movement. Parkour involves all locomotor skills to explore the environment. They believe that movement is a fundamental right to which we are all students trying to improve our efficiencies and effectiveness. APE is the first dedicated parkour gym in Grande Prairie and have systemized an approach to developing movement skill and ensure progressions. We have been discussing training systems and injury reduction models to help their students and athletes perform longer with reduced injury risks.
Walk Run & More
Walk Run & More has been an excellent addition to Grande Prairie's retail market. They have brought great quality products to our city with a wealth of information. They are keen community developers and have hosted many races which are helping to connect the people of Grande Prairie and introduce them to a healthier lifestyle. They are always looking for way to improve their knowledge base and provide better information to their customers. We have partnered with them by offering staff training and running technique and product recommendations to ensure runners are getting the best information to keep them on the road and trails.
