Strong Program

Athletic Performance & Health Optimization Program

A Biochemistry Tune Up for all Athletes to Maximize Athletic Potential and Performance

Athletes are vulnerable to nutrient deficiency, hormone imbalances, and prolonged inflammatory responses due to their large training loads. The STRONG program, designed by Dr. Laura Jones, is a 12-week program that employs valuable tools to assess and improve lean body mass and strength, nutrient and hormone imbalances, as well as inflammation & resulting recovery time.

Baseline Assessments

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis with our FDA approved, Seca device is used to assess baseline muscle mass, percent body fat, metabolic rate and hydration status.

Micronutrient Testing is used to assess for deficiency of various nutrients (Ex: magnesium, B vitamins, antioxidants, D3).

Adrenal Function and Sex Hormone Assessment is an assessment that investigates 4-point cortisol and DHEA levels to assess adrenal function. Various sex hormones are also assessed.

Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA)

BIA measurements allows us to assess if your training load and nutrition are supporting strength and training gains.

Taking basal metabolic rate (BMR) and training load into account allows for calorie and macronutrient goals to be calculated. Following the resulting recommendations means an athlete can avoid calorie or protein deficit, a common pitfall during training. This allows for more confidence in appropriate fueling while reaching for improved performance.

The STRONG Program includes:

  • 3 sessions with Dr. Laura Jones
  • 3 Body Composition Assessments (baseline, mid and post program)
  • NutraEval Micronutrient Panel (baseline)
  • 4-Point Cortisol and Sex Hormone Panel (baseline)
  • Individualized nutrition recommendations including macronutrient goals
  • Nutritional supplement recommendations
