A Look Inside the UFC Performance Institute with Dr. Tera Giroux
Dr. Tera Giroux, Sports Medicine Manager/Chiropractor at Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Performance Institute, joins us in this episode. Her institute is a huge center with all aspects related to the components of sports, such as strength, conditioning, and nutrition. She and her team try their best to support the athletes, arrive to their fights healthy, and recover properly. All the athletes on the UFC roster have free access to their facility and all the services offered. They vary from recovery tools to food! As Mixed Martial Arts is a relatively new sport, there isn’t a lot of data about it. Therefore, the Performance Institute collects all sorts of data about athletes to help deliver their services better.
“For the ladies, we have it harder, we do, especially if we want to work in the male-dominated sports.” -Dr. Tera Giroux
