Busselton 100 Triathlon – Preparation=Performance Workshop.
Hosted by Star Physio and Podiatry
Thursday 10th March, 6.00-7.30pm.
Countdown to Busselton 100 Triathlon! How to maximise your chance of a great race through smart training, the right equipment and setup and management of niggles!!!
TWA in conjunction with its physiotherapy partner Star Physio, presents an evening lecture and workshop to help you prepare for the inaugural Busselton 100. Three of Western Australia’s most highly regarded triathlon physiotherapists, James Lewin and Dan Davis (who are also sports scientists) and Julie Pham, who has the dual qualification of podiatrist will share the most up to date evidence with information you can use in your preparation for this iconic event. Check out here for more info on your presenters.
The Star Physio Team will share their expertise and thoughts in what to do and what not to do in the lead up to the Busselton 100, in particular, what to do if you get pain or an injury. You might be surprised how often it is safe to train through or around an injury to still achieve your goals – but only once assessed and diagnosed by an expert.
While we encourage all to attend for the full experience, we will also stream the content online for those unable to join us in person, or if we exceed our COVID limited capacity. Be sure to book early!
Thursday 10th March, 6.00pm at Star Physio West Perth, 3rd Floor, 31 Outram St West Perth
– free street parking and secure bike parking available upstairs.
