UPMC Sports Medicine, a long-time sponsor of Makita Suzuki’s Broc Hepler, is rapidly becoming the leader in sports medicine and performance services for the sport of motocross. The sports medicine provider received rave reviews for its first motocross training mini-camp.
The curriculum for the mini-camp will include motocross-specific training techniques, injury management and prevention, deconstructing current motocross training myths, nutrition, mental training and concussion management.
“I was an instructor at the first mini-camp,” said Hepler. “It was impressive. People definitely learned a lot. There is a right way and a wrong way to train and manage your motocross fitness program. UPMC has come up with a blueprint for training success. This blueprint works for teams like the Steelers and the Penguins. I’m proof that it works for professional motocross.”
