Be the best in the world or the best in your world. It’s all the same to us. Bioathletic is different. We call BS to long periods of rest and we are honest enough to admit that we can only be as good as the sum of our parts – that is, our team is what makes us shine.
Founders Travis Waite, Peter Colagiuri & Alison Donnan were frustrated with the standard of care many athletes were receiving via conventional methods and they felt that more could be done to accelerate the recovery process, prevent setbacks and exceed performance expectations. We truly believe that our athletes deserve better and we care enough to make sure they get it.
The Bioathletic model has been loosely described as a private Institute of Sport without the government red tape. We take practices from the elite end of sports performance, recovery and rehabilitation and we apply it to the everyday athlete with input from each of our team members, who are industry leaders in sports physiotherapy, exercise rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, sports dietetics, massage therapy and sports psychology.
Our core values are something that runs through the veins of our team and just like a sports team, they are common goals which create a culture and bond that we live by.
We avoid rest at all costs.
It’s a negative play and it was one of the main reasons we began Bioathletic. We were sick of hearing athletes (elite or average) told to rest when they were injured or post-event, when the real magic lies within active recovery methods and a restructure of training demands rather than abstinence.
We use a team approach.
You can’t be everything to everyone. Using a team of professionals with different specialties, strengths and areas of focus has enabled us to have much greater impact on everyone we come into contact with
We focus on rehab and performance operating on a continuum
Rehabilitation and performance are not mutually exclusive concepts. If rehab doesn’t take into account your performance demands it’s not going to be effective. And if you’re performance training doesn’t consider weaknesses then performance efforts can be lost.
We don’t aim to make our athletes better. We aim to make them better than they ever were.
Mediocrity has no place here. We’ll always aim to go further. Further than ever thought possible.
