I am super excited to announce my newest sponsor. The Intermountain Sports Medicine Specialty Group and I will be teaming up to help you get healthy. They offer a large array of services for all level of athletes, from the very beginner to the elite. I feel honored to be supported as an athlete by such an amazing organization. I have personally benefited from the great services they offer and refer all my athletes to them. They have top notch medical care with board certified physicians, fellowship trained in Sports Medicine. I love that they provide non-surgical treatment for pain and injury to get athletes back out there training as quickly as possible so they can enjoy an active lifestyle. They also offer medical services and have many offices in Northern Utah including; Salt Lake City, Bountiful, TOSH- Murray, Alta View, and Riverton
I have recently had the privilege of touring the LiVe Well Center at the Salt Lake Clinic. What an amazing resource! Many of their facilities offer valuable assessments including:
Body Composition & Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Testing
Lactate Assessment or Vo2Max Testing
Musculoskeletal Functional Analysis
Bike Fit & Testing
Diet & Nutrition Education
Exercise & Physical Therapy Services
As a coach, I love to have my athletes take advantage of assessments like this. Simply the information provided from these assessments helps me coach my athletes better. If you are looking to become a better athlete I highly recommend you check into all the services Intermountain Sports Medicine has to offer. I have participated in many of these assessments myself and will be sharing more information about them on my YouTube account at The Blonde Runner in the coming months – stay tuned!
I am looking forward to an amazing year and partnership with Intermountain!

I just love this vest. It makes exercise feel like a party and keeps you safer because you are more visible. If you or your kids exercise outside I highly suggest getting one. Use the code BLONDERUN and save 20%!
