LiVe Well Center’s High-Performance Experiences

Due to a variety of factors like accessibility, altitude, world-class medical care and active lifestyle opportunities, Park City is poised to become the next triathlete/endurance sport mecca. To help athletes bump up their performance and live the healthiest life possible, Park City’s Intermountain Hospital’s LiVe Well Center has partnered with elite coaches Craig Alexander and Rachel Joyce
“Braver, Bolder, Stronger,” a women’s empowerment experience led by Ironman Triathlon Champion Rachel Joyce, is designed by women for women to boost swimming, cycling and running skills with other “Kick-Ass” women, while also incorporating nutrition, yoga and leadership workshops with internationally known leadership expert Dana Platin. At the end of this four-day camp, athletes will be armed with tools to become braver, bolder, stronger and gain new skills to thrive in both sport and life.

Specialized training camps will enhance techniques and help participants optimize every facet of their well-being.

Craig Alexander is one of the few athletes to win the Hawaiian Ironman back-to-back in 2008 and 2009. At age 38, he was the oldest man to win the Ironman and the first person to win both the Half Ironman and Ironman World Championships in the same year. In 2015, he teamed up with training partners and long-time coaches Frank Jakobson and Ben Griffi n to form “Sansego,” a coaching group designated to help athletes focus on core principles of performance and success without ego. Th e LiVe Well Center’s “Sansego High-Performance Experience” is not your average training camp. Participants of all levels experience the thrill of cycling with Alexander and his coaches in the scenic environs of Park City, along with personalized one-on-one swim technique, bike form and running critiques.

Both camps feature fully supported rides, biomedical testing, meals, nutrition counseling and the LiVe Well Center’s in-house team of physical therapists, massage therapists and a state-of-the-art sports performance facility led by Dr. Max Testa, a 30-year veteran of sports medicine who has been instrumental in guiding some of the most elite athletes in the world.
