A partner is someone who shares your aspirations, your goals, and your drive. The most successful societies recognize that teamwork is better and that collective effort is more powerful than the sum of individual forces.
Proactive, an institute with world-class trainers and facilities and a passion for physical and mental excellence, has been a partner for more than eight years of Herbalife Nutrition, recognized for offering world-class nutrition products and its passion for innovation and community. .
We have worked hand-in-hand with Proactive to optimize their elite athlete program through sports nutrition, with the support of Dr. Dana Ryan, who has created personalized plans to supplement workouts . In parallel, the Proactive facilities have been the destination of our sponsored athletes, where they have had the opportunity to receive high-performance training from Proactive coaches.
Now, we are entering a new phase of our society: the creation of the best sports performance and nutrition facilities.
About the Proactive Fueled by Herbalife Nutrition Training Center
Our goal was very clear: to champion the personal brand of each athlete through high-quality training and personalized sports nutrition. With this goal in mind, we designed a state-of-the-art sports training center, focused on performance research and nutrition with cutting-edge technology.
The center, located in Westlake Village, California, aims to offer athletes a complete 360-degree experience that includes:
- World-class sports nutrition management
- Fitness with renowned trainers and specialized teams
- Elite sports rehabilitation
- Performance tests with state-of-the-art machines designed for the study of the science of biomechanics
Ryan Capretta, founder and director of Proactive, spearheads all training and rehabilitation programs, with the support of his team of experts. Ryan has over 20 years of experience and a Master of Sports Science. He and his team are nationally revered coaches sought after by NFL, MLB, NBA and ATP athletes for their scientific and systematic approach to training.
In addition, it will have areas dedicated to H24 products within the venue, so that athletes can use them while training, according to their nutrition plans. The entire line of H24 is NSF Certified for Sport® , which is very important for professional athletes, as it guarantees that the products do not contain any of the more than 270 substances banned by the main sports organizations.
High performance teams and rehabilitation
From endurance to strength training to rehab technology, we’ve equipped the center with a holistic mindset to maximize training results and deliver programs that are challenging, time-efficient, and ultimately effective.
We have many exciting and cutting-edge machines and equipment in the Proactive gym area, but the three listed below are among the most innovative and exclusive:
Keizer Strength Training®
When we talk about strength training , we usually think of weight lifting. However, force is only half of the equation, the other half is speed. In the world of fitness, power is defined as the speed at which resistance (weight) moves. Power = force (endurance) x speed (speed). Training will only be considered functional if it is done at speed.
Keizer technology allows athletes to train with speed, on each machine and for each movement, applying Keizer’s dynamic variable resistance, which develops strength safely at any speed. This allows athletes to improve power, and power is the key to performance.
Movement analysis is the process by which the biomechanics of a human movement is captured. Our center has equipment with a series of sensors that capture human movement. This movement is captured in three dimensions, and provides information in terms of energy conversion through the kinetic chain.
Through this data capture process, we will be able to develop efficiency models based on the conversion of energy in sports activities. These models are used to determine efficiency in terms of energy conversion through the kinetic chain in the bat, ball, racket or golf club, allowing coaches to be very precise when defining training. that athletes need to achieve their maximum performance.
American football circuit and indoor court
Yes, we have a football field inside the training center! With a 15 percent incline, 15 yards in length, and a state-of-the-art indoor turf coating, this incline course makes sprinting easy with the right mechanics. More specifically, it helps reinforce running with the forefoot. Running on steep terrain also helps improve lean position and angle for acceleration, both keys to more speed in an athlete.
In the fitness arena, we also focus on the recovery aspect. I am convinced that the two technologies that I will mention below, among others that the center has, will make a difference for athletes.
NuCalm® for stress and sleep management
We provide athletes with the world’s only patented neuroscientific technology that has been clinically proven to control stress, improve sleep quality, and promote recovery. A biosignal processing disk is placed on the inside of the left wrist, which sends these signals to activate the brain’s natural relaxation system by disrupting the adrenaline response.
This patented technology targets the brain circuits of the limbic system, the hypothalamus, and the brainstem, responsible for activating the stress response. NuCalm slows brain waves to the frequency of the early stages of sleep, providing relief from the nervous system’s “fight or flight” reaction , lowering levels of the stress hormone (cortisol), and controlling inflammation.
This technology quickly takes athletes out of catabolic collapse mode and into a healthy recovery mode, so they can heal and recover as quickly as possible.
HydroWorx Underwater Treadmill®
The HydroWorx 350 uses hot water therapy as a means of enhancing rehabilitation and performance through buoyancy, endurance, and hydrostatic water pressure. Its many benefits include generating greater cardiovascular endurance, increasing flexibility, promoting greater recovery and strengthening of injured tissues, and reducing joint stiffness.
Our ultimate goal is to become a world-class research and training center where the science of movement and the science of nutrition are seamlessly combined to improve athlete performance and drive product innovation in the industry. of nutritional supplements.
