Penn Athletics Hosts FOX 29 "Good Day Philadelphia" for Workout


PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania Division of Recreation and Intercollegiate Athletics (DRIA) Sport Performance staff hosted FOX 29 reporter Jennaphr Frederick on August 16 as part of FOX’s “Good Day Philadelphia” show here in Philadelphia. 

Penn’s Associate Athletic Director for Sports Performance, Eric Laudano, and Director of Strength and Conditioning Jim Steel put Frederick through her paces, showcasing elite training techniques used by the Penn Quakers. This was the latest installment of FOX 29’s look at the Olympic Games. Last week, Laudano demonstrated “cupping” to “Good Day Philadelphia” hosts Alex Holley and Mike Jerrick at the FOX 29 studios in Old City.

FOX 29 visited Penn so that Laudano and Steel can demonstrate the uses of SpartaTrac’s ForcePlate system. This system, which is housed in the Greene Family Intercollegiate Strength and Conditioning Center, scientifically combines powerful analytic software with patent-pending evaluation tools to help our clients create healthier, stronger, more connected athletes.

SpartaTrac allows Penn’s coaches to see a clearer picture of their athletes’ preparation, grow their program through innovation, and optimize their athletes’ development. Penn’s strength and conditioning staff, meanwhile, can utilize SpartaTrac’s flexible framework to create custom programs, automate repetitive tasks, and increase efficiency for their athletes and staff.
