ALTIS Athletes continue to enjoy world-leading performance-solutions, via an innovative new partnership with Thorne Research.

Phoenix, December 19, 2017 — In our continued efforts to provide world-leading services to elite track & field athletes, we are extremely excited and proud to announce an exclusive partnership with Thorne Research. Thorne is respected as a leader in nutritional science and supplement intervention, and will work with us to help educate both athletes and coaches of the importance of trusted nutritional supplementation.

Performance Director, Stuart McMillan is very excited to welcome Thorne to the ALTIS family: “Everyone in the sports-world knows the reputation of – and the quality of – Thorne Research. Especially in elite amateur sport, athletes need to be sure that everything they put into their bodies is not only clean and safe for use, but of the highest quality. With Thorne’s extensive line of NSF Certified for Sport® products, we can be assured that athletes are using only the very best products available.”

It is the quality of the brand, and the educational opportunities available, that most excites Coach McMillan: “It is clear that far too many athletes are still taking their chances with poor-quality, untested supplements. A driving principle for us at ALTIS is to educate coaches and athletes around the world, not only on sound training principles, but also best-practice in lifestyle, sports medicine, nutrition, and supplementation. With Thorne on board, we have a partner in this mission; where together we feel we can help inform the sports-world of the importance of quality, clean, and safe supplementation strategies.”

Thorne CEO Paul Jacobson highlights the additional assessment benefits to the athlete-group, through Thorne’s expertise in measuring and understanding various nutritional markers: “Our recent partnership with Drawbridge Health, in addition to our testing platform WellnessFX, will allow Thorne and ALTIS to gain invaluable insight into the metrics and data assessment needed to understand how to maximize optimal performance for these elite athletes.”

Thorne’s product portfolio for ALTIS includes those that are NSF Certified for Sport®, which not only ensures product purity and freedom from unsafe levels of contaminants, but confirms they are free of more than 200 banned or prohibited substances. The NSF Certified for Sport® program is recognized by the NFL, MLB, NHL, PGA, LPGA, and Canadian Center for Ethics in Sports.

American sprinter-jumper Jasmine Todd can’t wait to get started with Thorne: “As an athlete that is subject to drug-testing, it is imperative that I can trust in the supplements that I take. Our team at ALTIS constantly communicates to us the importance of taking responsibility for everything that we put into our bodies. With this partnership with Thorne, we can now confidently know that high quality, safe products are available to us to help fuel us through the season. Thanks Thorne!”

The Thorne and ALTIS partnership begins in January, 2018.
