Athletes’ Performance Supporting 3 Teams for 2013 MLS Season
The 2013 MLS season kicks off on Saturday, March 2nd, and Athletes’ Performance wishes the best of luck to the three teams we're supporting for the season.
Athletes’ Performance will be providing integrated training, nutrition, and recovery services to the two-time defending MLS Cup champion LA Galaxy, the defending U.S. Open Cup champion Sporting Kansas City, and the defending Canadian Champion, Toronto FC.
In addition to integrated training support of each team, Athletes’ Performance and adidas also educated staff and coaches from every MLS team this offseason on the new adidas miCoach elite team system which will be used league-wide in 2013. This system allows coaches to monitor a player’s physical performance during training and matches, including heart rate, number of sprints, top speed, and distance covered, to create more personalized training and recovery plans.
Athletes’ Performance is honored to support the LA Galaxy, Sporting KC, and Toronto FC, and wishes each team the best of luck in the upcoming season.
