~Nobody else in this field has extensively studied the human metabolism functions like Dr. LaValle. His course will make you re-think your own training methodologies and push them to a superior level. 
Nelson Ayotte ChPC, CD, High Performance Director , Columbus Bluejackets Hockey

~Jim has done more to change my views on nutrition and supplementation than anyone else in the industry. Applying his methods, my players have seen significant improvements in their blood chemistry and sleep quality during the season. If you are looking for forward thinking ways to help your athletes, learning from Dr. LaValle is one of the best investments you can make. I strongly recommend attending any conference where you can hear him present.
Ben Peterson, Director of Performance, San Francisco 49ers

~This seminar provides immediate applicable knowledge that can be put into practice the next day with your patients and/or athletes. The caliber of speaker as well as the caliber of the attendees is unlike and seminar I’ve ever attended. This seminar has proven itself invaluable in my clinical practice, in the weight room with my athletes and also day-to-day with my own personal health and performance. I would highly recommend this seminar to anyone who’s looking to challenge themselves and take their skillset to the next level.

~This is an outstanding review of the fundamentals of cellular metabolism and offers practitioners practical advice to apply to your clients as soon as you return to your clinic/team. This is an ideal course for any clinician seeking to better understand and analyze large sets of clinical and performance biomarkers/lab values and overlay differences in patient/client signs/symptoms for optimal improvement and results.
