It Is All About The Individual: Dr. Max Testa

What can we learn from the team doctor for elite athletes who has helped on nearly 30 Tours de France and is now working with us mortals? Why are athletes taking Viagra for performance? What are the health benefits of exercise? How are exercise and diet personal to each person? Why do we need to re-evalute all medical and drug studies and go more with the individual?

Dr. Max Testa is a sports medicine physician and coach whose methodology emphasizes the importance of a fine-tuned human engine to help athletes reach peak performance. He now works at the Park City Hospital in sports medicine seeing patients of every level of fitness, with and without medical conditions. Dr. Max Testa discusses nitric oxide, the benefits of exercise, how everyone’s diet and fitness is personal to them, heart rate, and more. 

“At the end of the day, you have to go back to basics. Your diet has to be mainly based on healthy food.” 

“If your blood pressure goes down, your heart has to spend less energy to pump the same amount of blood per minute.” 

“Often we hear the concept of exercise as a medicine or exercise is medicine and there is nothing more true than that. Exercise has some pharmacological-like effect on the body.” 

“Not everyone responds to the same training.” 

“I start with what the science shows, for sure, but then I tell my patient, ‘The result is not as good as I was expecting; maybe we should try this other thing.’ Sometimes you have to try more than once to find the right balance.” 

“Everything about exercise and nutrition is multifactorial. You have to find the key to open your own door.”
