Medal Bound & TEAM USA Fencing

Medal Bound is a non-profit that was created by Lorenzo to fill a void for Olympic-bound athletes in athletic care and development. Too often, many amateur athletes do not have the resources to allow for optimal performance. In 2005, the journey began helping 8 Olympic-bound fencers. This involved treatments, training programs, nutritional planning and traveling internationally over the course of 3 years leading to the Beijing Olympics. Medal Bound provides both financial and professional resources, and assist these athletes in realizing their Olympic dream.

Team USA Fencing

Dr. Gonzalez joined our USA Women’s Foil Team staff prior to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. He treated the entire team with professional care and trust. Since most Olympic athletes do not receive sponsorship, Dr. Gonzalez used much of his own resources pro bono for myself and my teammates. I did not make the team, but the 2008 Women’s Olympic Foil Team that did go to Beijing won an unprecedented silver medal in large part because of Dr. Gonzalez’s abilities to keep them all whole and healthy after many years of repetitive injuries.
— Iris Zimmermann, 2000 Olympian
Dr. Lorenzo Gonzalez is unlike any other physical therapist, trainer, or medical professional I have ever met. There are few professionals in the field of physical therapy that approach an injury or injuries holistically. Dr. Gonzalez, as evident through his education in the field of acupuncture, has a unique view of how a patient should be treated. As an athlete, I felt that my injury was not the focal point, rather, he looked at the whole kinetic chain and other possible issues that led to the final injury result. I flew down to New York City to spend several days dissecting my core weaknesses and strengths to create a more long-term strategy for my injuries.

During my personal run for the Olympics in 2006-2008, I was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and had been taking medication and seeing a therapist at home. During our travels, Dr. Gonzalez always paid acute attention to what was needed for me to perform. Personally, it was evident that he was interested in the athlete in both body and mind; often understanding the treatment or care could be more mental than physical.
