Meet Jon, one of our amazing patients!
Meet Kayla, she’s a Bellevue native and lifelong competitive athlete. She fell in love with running at an early age, entering her first race at the age of 7. By 15 she transitioned to sponsored snowboarding, but after 4 years of competitive snowboarding and several severe injuries she transitioned back into the running circuit. She’s now a competitive runner, with a true love for obstacle course racing! Check out Kayla’s website to read about her racing adventures and see her upcoming race schedule. Kayla was one of a handful of people last year to be invited to Under Armour’s Run Camp in Death Valley, she’s featured in this phenomenal Under Armour Run Camp video clip.
Here’s what Kayla had to say about Velo Sports Rehab (VSR):
Q: What is your favorite thing about Velo Sports Rehab?
A: I can’t choose just one! All of the staff at VSR are wonderful! I know every time I come to VSR I will get the treatment I need and leave feeling better than when I came in. The staff is super knowledgeable and Dr. Seavey is incredible at treating my sore muscles and preventing any further injuries.
Q: What activities do your treatments at Velo Sports Rehab help you to enjoy?
A: Coming to VSR each week allows me to not only increase my weekly mileage, but helps my body recover faster from injuries I suffer during training. Without VSR, my workouts would not be as efficient because I would be spending more time recovering. Now that my body is feeling good, VSR will help me conquer my first IRONMAN this year!
Q: What else would you like to share with us about your experience with Velo Sports Rehab?
A: I want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone at VSR. Without you guys, I wouldn’t be able to run at the level I do now. You guys are always there to greet me with a smile on your face, I appreciate ALL of you!
Awe, thank you Kayla for the kind words! You are an inspiration and pure joy to be around. We love having you as a patient and look forward to continuing to support you in your racing excellence. We truly have the greatest patients at VSR and we are grateful for each one.
Meet Karen, she’s an emergency room nurse who’s passionate about fitness. The last few years, Karen competed in marathons, triathlons and focused on ultra-running. Currently, she’s working hard in the gym to take her physique to the next level. Karen’s fur baby, Abu, a 9-month-old English Cream Golden Retriever is the love of her life!
Here’s what Karen had to say about Velo Sports Rehab (VSR):
Q: What’s your favorite thing about VSR?
A: Dr. D, Jess, Hillary and Ashley have been my family now for many years of training in Seattle. They have helped me through the physical, mental and emotional challenges of training, racing and pushing my body to the limit. My favorite thing is there unconditional love and support for me as a person and athlete.
Q: What activities do your treatments at VSR help you to enjoy?
A: VSR helped me to successfully compete in a half ironman, several marathons, several ultra runs and my first 50 miler without injury. No other sports health care team has ever been able to help me accomplish that. Now they are helping me stay fit and safe as I regularly attend the gym now to cut body fat and hopefully tone my body to a level I have not yet achieved.
Q: What else would you like to share with us about your experience with VSR?
A: I cannot share enough how incredibly blessed I am to have VSR in my life. I tell this to anyone that asks about VSR, they are the type of quality and talented sports medical team that is a treasure and rare to find. Dr. D, Jess, Ashley and Hillary are some of the nicest, most supportive, people I have ever met and I am extremely blessed to call them my family.
We are so grateful to have wonderful patients like Karen! One of the greatest compliments is when our patients excel in their physical pursuits safely and without pain. Thank you, Karen, for your kind words, we look forward to continuing to support you in all your fitness pursuits.
