As an athlete, Tammy knows the wear and tear one’s body can take during exercise and athletics, as well as life. A competitive swimmer from age 6 through college, waterpolo player, jet ski racer, 30 years of all triathlon distances (11 time Ironman
competitor and World Championship qualifier), 5k-marathon runner, Category 3 cyclist, standup and prone paddleboard racer, 14’er climber, 100 mile trail races pacer, weight lifter, etc…
Tammy also knows there are many ways to optimize one’s body to adapt to these changing needs and thrive. One of the many ways is proper support/alignment and footwear.
In 1989, as she began her triathlon career, she battled shin splints/medial tibial stress
syndrome and stress fractures. Within two weeks of being sent for custom orthotics her symptoms were alleviated, even while running. Soon thereafter, while pre-med at the University of Colorado, she began working for the same clinic. Working while finishing school and then four years after. In 1995, Tammy started Elite Feet USA Orthotics. Her “sole”
purpose is to keep her patients able to do what they want and/or need to do, injury free. This includes orthotics evaluations and implementation, if required, shoe recommendations, exercises to regain muscle balance and strength in their newly optimized position.
