The Ultimate Athlete Handbook & Tourney Updates

March 07, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

It's been a very busy few weeks for UltiPhotos and I'm very excited about the growing network of Ultimate photographers that we are bringing together to provide coast-to-coast coverage of this sport we all love.  Today's blog includes updates on The Ultimate Athlete Handbook, the Stanford Invite, and the New England Open.

 

The Ultimate Athlete Handbook

On February 27th, the first-ever e-book dedicated to Ultimate-specific fitness training was released.  This e-book is written by Ultimate fitness expert Melissa Witmer of Ultimate Results and produced by Skyd Magazine in collaboration with UltiPhotos

It's called The Ultimate Athlete Handbook and it's a guide to forging optimal fitness for the sport of Ultimate. The book includes sample workouts, training explanations and video demonstrations.  It's a fantastic book for athletes of all ages and skill levels to develop or augment their training foundation for the sport. UltiPhotos contributed some of our best action photos from the 2011 USA Ultimate College and Club Championships to help provide inspiration for your workouts.  Finally, $1 off each sale goes to support a great cause in Ultimate Peace.

We're very pleased with the extremely positive reviews that book has garnered so far, including:

  • Ultimate Rob's review. His conclusion: "I would recommend this handbook to any level ultimate player. Read it. Learn from it. Apply it. And become a better player and athlete."
  • Ultimate Thoughts review: "This represents a huge step forward for ultimate. It’s is a real treat, and a resource I’ve been wanting for years but just didn’t realize until I had it in front of me."

For more information, check out The Ultimate Athlete Handbook's Facebook page or this sample of what's inside the 50-page e-book! Inside the sample, you can find the intro, a foreword by Tim Morrill, the first few pages of chapter 1, and a list of endorsements from some of the top names in Ultimate. It also previews a sweet photo including Opi Payne of Scandal Ultimate and Kelly Tidwell Phoenix Women's Ultimate.

Over 140 individual copies and several team copies have been sold to date!  Order your copy now and take advantage of this essential guide to Ultimate fitness training today.

 

The Stanford Invite 2012

This past weekend, photographer Kyle McBard joined UltiPhotos for the first time ever to provide coverage of the 2012 Stanford Invite.  She captured some great shots which are up in the preview galleries.  Expect the full galleries to be posted later this week.

The 2012 New England Open

We are very excited to announce the addition of photographer Burt Granofsky to the UltiPhotos team.  He will be providing the Official Tournament Photography for the 2012 New England Open on behalf of UltiPhotos.  Burt is an experienced Ultimate photographer out of Boston and we are glad to welcome him on board for this 32-team College Open division tournament.  Here's a sample of what Burt shot last year at the Northeast Club Regionals:
