Speaking

With boundless enthusiasm for debunking health myths and sharing the latest discoveries that can help his audiences enjoy longer, more robust lives, Dr. Maharam is available for speaking engagements on topics such as:

  • Marathon Medical Tips. How do you prepare for marathon day? Training tips, injury prevention, dealing with injury, nutritional tips, carbo loading. Know what to do to finish the 26.2 miles strong and healthy!
  • Illegal Substances in Sports. It’s gone well beyond professional wrestlers and their steroids. From the junior high school student up, competition is tough and the drive to win medals – or just look better – is strong. Dr. Maharam’s information and non – confrontational style have been a success with students, athletes (professional, college, high school, recreational and weekend) parents, and coaches. He discusses who’s using what and why, and what everyone should be on the lookout for. 
  • Back Pain? Don’t Just Sit There. A program that takes aim at this ubiquitous ailment not by telling people to be quiet and be careful, but to be active and move!
  • Sex and Back Pain. Everyone that has back pain is afraid to ask the question: “Can I do it?” Dr. Maharam talks about how one can, male or female, depending on who is having the pain and why!
  • Making Exercise a Part of Your Life. Why do so many people start an exercise program and quit? Because it’s like bad – tasting medicine: good for you, but too tough to swallow. They don’t know how to get into the exercise feel – good zone that makes people lifetime converts. But it’s not hard. Many people, after just one lecture have gotten onto the path of lifetime exercise!
  • Don’t Fall into the Mouse Trap. Sitting at a computer doesn’t need to cause wrist and back pain. Dr. Maharam’s program gives corporate employees a plan for pain-free computer work.
  • Healthy People 2000. The latest Surgeon General’s findings on how much exercise you really need for good health and lower cardiac risk. Plus, how easy it can be to eat right without being a scientist or mathematician.
  • Sports Shouldn’t Hurt. Problems like tennis elbow or runner’s knee derail more fitness programs than boredom or lack of time ever could. But they don’t have to. The secret is being prepared, whether it’s for summer biking, tennis, or golf, or wintertime skiing. What people need is a season – by – season program that fine-tunes the body for the sports to come.
  • Exercise: The Best Stress Reducer. People think they need meditation, drugs, or long vacations to deal with the daily tensions of life. There’s plenty of medical evidence suggesting what they really need is regular exercise.
  • Dance Fever. Dance is a sport. Prepare your body for that night out or your everyday work – out.
  • Food as Fuel. Most nutrition conscious people try to eat right simply so they can stay healthy. What about eating to get strong, have more energy, and feel better? Sports medicine knows how you can, and that you never have to count a calorie.
  • The Superman Syndrome. Adolescent athletes think they can go out on the field, play hard at any game they want, and not get hurt. They’re unbreakable – they think. Not so. But if they prepare, just like adults should, they’ll be headed for an active lifetime of good health. Prepare or beware: The most important exercises, stretches, and other conditioning practices “supermen” should know so they stay as durable as they feel.
  • Women in Sports: Yes, They’re Different From Men. Female athletes have more to think about than winning. For example, on a typical high school cross – country woman’s team, two out of ten runners will show evidence of an eating disorder. We’re finally beginning to learn some fascinating things about issues like anorexia and bulimia, exercise and menopause, osteoporosis, and hormonal balances. Who’s at risk, and what can they do about it?
  • What Makes the Older Athlete Different? In most sports they’re called masters. They’re ordinary people over 35, and as a group they could beat most 20 – year olds of a couple of generations ago. Why not? The body doesn’t age the way we once thought it did. We just have to keep it tuned up a little differently as the years go by.
  • Are You Fit, or Just an Athlete? Most of us confuse prowess on the playing field with fitness and health. You can be a top jock and be in awful shape. And vice versa. If you want to stay healthy, stay fit. Then work on the athletics.
