State-of-the-art athletic training facility to open in Scottsdale


This fall, a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to helping people reach a peak level of fitness, health and wellness will open in Scottsdale.

Cerulean Progressive Athletic Training and Wellness will open an 8,000 square foot facility, offering state-of-the-art, non-invasive health and fitness programs that fuse cutting edge technology with the science of well-being to deliver optimal body conditioning from the inside out.

With a wide variety of programs and activities, Cerulean provides access to training and wellness modalities focused to improve overall well-being and meet the needs of those looking to achieve an optimum level of health, athletic readiness, fitness and overall wellness, according to a press release.

“Whether you’re an athlete looking to perform better than ever before or struggling through a post-surgery or post-injury recovery process, a person dealing with chronic or transient pain, or simply an individual with the desire and commitment to live and feel your best on a day- to-day basis, Cerulean fuses the science of sports integrative medicine and the art of wellness to cultivate the most advanced lifestyle programs available today,” stated Dr. Mel Dixon, DDS, vice-president and program managing director at Cerulean, in the release.

“After all, 50 is the new 40, and 40 is the new 30, and finally the technology is here and we are making it accessible to help people reach their personal lifestyle wellness goal.”

With similar aspiration as the Nike Oregon Project or the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, Cerulean will offer a suite of optimum body conditioning, performance readiness training, and post-event accelerated recovery modalities and technologies that – up until now – have typically been scarce or mostly reserved to top and professional athletes in their quest for body strength, ultimate health, peak performance and heightened recovery time.

For the first time ever, all of these treatments and technologies are offered to the public together and under one roof, the release stated.

Prepare better, perform harder, recover faster and live life well. These are the tenets upon which Cerulean Progressive Athletic Training and Wellness is founded.

A range of services will be available including whole body or localized arctic cryotherapy, altitude training, zero gravity training, compression therapy, cellular repair therapy, hypobaric adaptive conditioning, athletic testing and esthetic treatments. The majority of these services are the key for athletes to increase performance and significantly reduce recovery times, the release stated.

These unique treatments and technologies can be utilized by anyone looking to live a healthy and active lifestyle, and look and feel their very best. Combined with positive lifestyle choices, they can significantly improve day-to-day health and wellness.

These treatments and modalities have also been shown to be effective for people dealing with injuries and chronic or transient pain, by initiating physical processes in the human body that promote the body’s ability to heal.  And for those who want to look as young as they feel, these treatments and technologies can actually turn back the clock physically and esthetically.

“We strive to become a key contributor to our clients’ individual athletic and wellness ecosystems by offering, technology-advanced, safe and non-invasive modalities that promote natural healing, body strength, recovery, beauty and overall health,” stated Fabrice Dechoux, founder and CEO of Cerulean, in the release.

Cerulean will offer single-sessions, as well as membership-based programs that will allow individuals to tailor their own fitness, health and wellness program according to their needs and personal goals.

Real-time monitoring and athletic testing allows individuals to chart their progress and improvement as they participate in various programs.

In addition to individual treatments and daily classes, part of the facility will be available for private and group sessions and will offer rentals for professionals, coaches, teams and organizations.

Cerulean Progressive Athletic Training and Wellness is located at 9150 E. Del Camino Dr. #101 in Scottsdale and is anticipated to open in November 2015.
