Mountaineer Magnificence Continues

Middletown, PA //3/06/2008-The Appalachian State football team began last football season with an upset for the ages over Michigan and finished it by winning a remarkable third consecutive NCAA Division I FCS National Title.  No other team in FCS/I-AA history has ever accomplished the three-peat feat.  This is a program that expects the best and gets results.  With that in mind, it’s obvious why Appalachian State chose HydroWorx for their school’s aquatic therapy needs.

Three HydroWorx pools will be housed in the Mountaineers’ new Kidd Brewer Stadium Athletic Complex.  With the 1000 Series pool, ground-based gait training and sport-specific activities will easily be duplicated by ASU athletes on the variable speed underwater treadmill.  The pool’s high-powered water jets are strategically placed for resistance training and deep tissue massage.  Several athletes will be able to receive treatment at one time with multiple workstations and a variable water depth feature.  The pool’s state-of-the art heating unit provides fully-automated water temperatures.  Next to the 1000 Series pool will be the HydroWorx ThermalPlunge and PolarPlunge pools, enabling warm and cold water therapy as well as contrast therapy.  This state-of-the-art facility will stand behind the home side of Kidd Brewer Stadium, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Boone, North Carolina.

The complex will open at the inception of the 2009 football season.  All students will have access to the benefits of the new hydrotherapy and training rooms; the strength and conditioning room with also be open to the campus.  The three-peat national champion football squad will take advantage of a new equipment room, locker rooms, and team meeting rooms.  Fans will love the stadium’s new press box, luxury suites, and VIP club seating.  Appalachian State student-athletes will also enjoy new athletic offices and a study hall and tutorial space.

The inclusion of HydroWorx technology in the Kidd Brewer Stadium Athletic Complex demonstrates the university’s incredible drive to stay atop the competition.  Appalachian State’s commitment to excellence is also proven by the fact that they will open the 2008 season by challenging the defending FBS national champions, Louisiana State University, on August 30th.  Both schools are HydroWorx customers.
