Sleep Study in Sarasota

During my few days at home in Sarasota, FL, I spent an evening at the University Sleep Specialists for a “sleep study and analysis” with Sleep Consultant Dr. Peter Fort, MD, FCCP. 

It was an interesting evening as I learned a great deal about sleep patterns and the importance of proper sleep for peak physical and mental performance. Never again will I doubt the value of quality sleep. “Delta” sleep (deep sleep) is a time when our muscles and organs repair. For anyone who wants to optimize their day, taking the time to sleep deeply and sufficiently is a must.

Check out this 11 minute video of my experience at the University Sleep Specialists. It takes you from the preparation phase and through the diagnosis. This will give you a good idea of what to expect if you are interested in participating in a sleep study yourself.

Here is a photo at the beginning of my sleep exam as Tony begins to put on the wires in the proper places for ideal readings.


Here is a photo after Tony gets done attaching all the wires on me…what do you think?

I will be traveling to New England on Saturday the 16th for a clinic in Vermont, followed by another clinic in New York. I will be participating in Race#16 in Salem, MA on August 22nd. Thank you all for your support as I enter the final quarter of my racing events.

  1. Not only is sleep important for recovery, but sleep deprivation interferes with your diet, causing sleep deprived people to overeat.

  2. Hi David,
    I was looking at your website, as godaddy suggested, just to see an example for one I hope to start for a small doggie day care business. But I found so much more than I expected. Your site is wonderful–I’ll be back to read more! I’m a runner “wannabe”–just jog once in a while, and I find it helps to read stuff about running to stay motivated. It looks like you have a lot of inspiration and information to share, and I look forward to reading more of your writings. Good luck in all of your runs and travels! Great idea!
