PPP 000: An Introduction to the Peak Performance Podcast
Welcome to the Peak Performance Podcast!
I am your host Dr. Marc Dupuis. Today’s goal is to introduce myself, describe why I have decided to launch this podcast, what you will learn, topics we will cover, the format we will use, and lastly, the frequency at which you can expect new episodes to be released!
I am a Board Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician and an Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician. I have had the privilege of studying elite sports science at the United States Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, NY and at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. I provide the chiropractic services for the Sanford Mainers Baseball Team which is a member of the New England Collegiate Baseball League. I see athletes of all ages in my clinic from middle/high school and college ranks up to professional athletes and pretty much everyone in between.
I founded my clinic, Back to Health Chiropractic in 2004 in my hometown of Sanford, Maine, where our mission is two-fold. #1: To help as many athletes as we can perform at their best! 2#: To become the leader of the lifetime family wellness movement. In my free time you will likely find me outside swimming, biking, running, hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, there are not many outdoor activities that I do not like to do. I am an avid triathlete, I am a 2X Ironman Lake Placid Finisher, a 5X Half Ironman Finisher and 2X Sea to Summit Extreme Triathlon Finisher.
Originally from Southern CT, my family relocated to Sanford, Maine in 1987 where I completed grades 6-12, before moving on to college at the University of Maine, Orono & then graduate school at New York Chiropractic College. I now reside in Saco Maine with my wonderful wife and our two fur children.
Why did I start this podcast? The answer is simple, I have been so fortunate to learn from many of our nation’s best sports medicine doctors and combined with what I have learned studying functional based nutritional therapies I have more and more information to share with the athletes I work with in my practice but can only see so many practice members in one day. For a long time I have been trying to figure out how to share this critical information with more and more athletes. Naturally, doing it through a podcast seemed like the perfect answer, since anyone with an internet connection would be able to gain access. So here we are!
My hope is to make this podcast your go to source for tips and strategies on improving your peak athletic performance. This podcast will cover information for team sport athletes, Crossfit athletes, triathletes (short course, 1/2 Ironman & Ironman athletes) runners, swimmers and more. Interview episodes will feature professional athletes as well as experts in the world of sports medicine, rehabilitation, strength training and athletic coaching. As we embark on this journey, please subscribe to the podcast so that you will never miss a new episode and PLEASE, give me feedback, if there are topics you would like me to cover, let me know and I will do my best to address them!
Frequency: We launched this podcast with a special 3 pack of episodes to kick things off. Future episodes will be released on a bi-weekly basis.
So THAT is it for now folks, for each episode you can go to our website; www.thepeakperformancepodcast.com where you will find a clickable link for each episode. There you will find the show notes for that episode. In the show notes you will find a list of what you will learn, a summary of the show itself and links to related information. Stay tuned, I hope you enjoy future episodes and lastly, thank you very much for listening. Have a great day!
