SVSP engages EXOS to expand programs for athletes, adults, communities and companies
INDIANAPOLIS (January 12, 2017) – St. Vincent Sports Performance (SVSP) has engaged EXOS, a leader in human performance, to enhance and expand the resources of SVSP in areas such as proactive health and human performance programs, including the EXOS NFL Combine training programs. SVSP is part of Ascension, the nation’s largest non-profit health system in the U.S. and the world’s largest Catholic health system.
St. Vincent Sports Performance in association with EXOS will continue to provide individuals with training programs and nutrition services, but will expand its reach to local municipalities and companies, utilizing EXOS’ methodologies that have supported elite champions around the world, the U.S. military and leading global corporations.
As one of the premier sports performance outlets in the country, SVSP works with athletes ranging from youth to college, Olympic and professional athletes as well as everyday athletes to help them achieve their peak performance in areas ranging from training to psychology to medicine to nutrition.
“Using expertise from St. Vincent Sports Performance and EXOS, we will take the science of what we have learned from elite athletes and help everyday people take their fitness and nutrition to the next level,” St Vincent CEO Jonathan Nalli said. “This relationship helps SVSP put a continued emphasis on improving the day-to-day lives of people in our community through human performance.”
EXOS has supported the 2014 World Cup champion German national team, 93 medalists at the 2012 and 2016 summer Olympics, and Indianapolis Colts players Andrew Luck, Dwayne Allen, Ryan Kelly, Vontae Davis, Joe Haeg, T.J Green, Antonio Morris, Robert Turbin, Akeem Ayers and Hassan Ridgeway as part of their NFL Combine program that has supported seven No. 1 overall picks, 134 first round and 675 total NFL Draft picks.
“We’re very excited to bring our proven performance system to St. Vincent Sports Performance and Indianapolis,” said Mark Verstegen, founder and president of EXOS. “St. Vincent Sports Performance has a great history of providing world-class training and nutrition services to the local population and elite athletes worldwide, and we’re proud to support their continued vision of pursuing excellence for their athletes and clients.
