The Tahoe Forest Center for Health has partnered with Palisades Ski Team and Sugar Bowl Academy to offer wellness programming to our local athletes. This is a great opportunity for our student athletes to learn from our Wellness Team.
Our newest member of the team, Dr Amy Vail, Clinical Psychologist, will work with these athletes on having a healthy mindset. She will be teaching mental skills training for peak performance, what is metacognition, and the importance of resilience and mental stamina.
Our Dietitian Lisa Fligor, will also work with the athletes to learn the “Big” (carbohydrates, fat and protein)and the “Little” (vitamins and minerals) nutrition needs to fuel high performing athletes. She will teach how to put together meals and snacks along with hydration needs while also navigating traveling on the road with on the go nutrition tips.
