A well-oiled machine. This is the thought that crossed my mind time and again as I toured the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association’s (USSA) Center of Excellence in Park City, Utah. If excellence is the standard, then their operation—from the breathtaking facility to the all-inclusive athlete interaction—has met and exceeded lofty expectation. From the moment you enter the center, your eyes are drawn upward to stunning chandeliers and colorful montages of alpine and nordic prowess. It’s a showcase for American skiing, snowboarding and freeskiing and serves as a mecca for athletes pushing to unlock untapped potential.
A Strong PartnershipUSANA has been a proud partner of USSA since August 2011 and gladly stands as the team’s supplement provider and a major contributor to the team’s nutrition and overall wellness goals.
The Center of Excellence provides aspiring world-class athletes with everything they need to succeed. Here’s a slice of what’s included:
- A full weight room
- Training and rehab stations with state-of-the-art equipment to speed recovery
- A full gymnasium and a skate park
A Guided TourOur tour guide on this snowy day was Australian-born Troy Flanagan, Ph.D., the center’s High Performance Director. After stops in Europe and the Far East, including a stint working for the sultan of Brunei, Flanagan leads the scientific aspect of USSA’s athletic training—and he wasted little time in sharing the reason why the center has helped athletes achieve so much success and made an astute connection to USANA in the video clip below.
