POWERGYM’s Scientific-Technical department was established with the objective of testing and searching for effective ergogenic sports supplements. One of its missions is to find new sports supplements for your sports nutrition which respond to current needs, validating and basing our new sports supplements on scientific principles.

The mission of the SCIENTIFIC-TECHNICAL DEPARTMENT is to help POWERGYM provide scientific, credible information to aid our clients to achieve maximum results with the sports supplements, understanding the “How”, the “When” and “How much” of each supplement is necessary to improve their nutrition.

To achievement this commitment we can call on doctors who are specialists in Sports Medicine, sports nutrition and ergogenic sports supplements, all of them are well respected and experienced not only in their fields of medicine but also in scientific research.

It is important to point out that our doctors and sports nutrition specialists in this Scientific-Technical Department work together with the scientific community volunteering their time and energy with the common objective of improving nutrition, sports supplements and the health of the athlete.

WORKING WITH THE C.A.R.

The C.A.R. is a sports centre that is dedicated to high performance sports, bringing the highest scientific-technical standards to federation-level athletes.

The C.A.R. started its activities in 1987 after the selection of Barcelona as the host of the Olympics, as an instrument to improve the performance of high performance athletes. It can call on modern sports installations that have been designed for cutting edge training techniques with a modern physiology laboratory as well as a first class scientific team.

The C.A.R., always concerned with achieving the maximum performance of its athletes, after assessing the scientific basis of sports supplements as well as their efficiency with professional athletes, decided to sign an agreement by which POWERGYM became supplier of sports supplements and sporting nutrition.

Various POWERGYM sports supplements are recommended to professional athletes by the C.A.R. due to their effectiveness, quality and security because the of the absence of impurities and banned substances which could test positive in drugs testing, thus protecting the health of the athlete.

With this agreement, POWERGYM once more demonstrates that it is the highest reference for quality, effectiveness and innovation in the Spanish sports supplements and nutrition market.
