What It Takes to Train and Run Professionally

When I tell people that I am a professional runner the first question I always get is, “Oh, so you run marathons?” They start scratching their heads a bit when I tell them I run the 5K on the track (like what’s the big deal, anyone can run 3.1 miles). It’s only when I explain […]

The Crossover Between Performance and Aesthetic Training and Eating

I spent my off season from professional Obstacle Course racing to cross something off of my fitness bucket list— a figure competition. Yes, where you stand on a stage with a spray tan, clear heels and a bikini and flex. Sorry—pose.  Although this was seemingly out of character, the mental and physical challenge was actually […]

Top Protein Sources for Smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to quickly throw together a nutritious, delicious meal or snack in just a few minutes. Unfortunately, “nutritious” sometimes makes way for “delicious” in these scenarios. Very often, smoothies get loaded with lots of carbohydrate sources and end up being nutritionally imbalanced. Not only will this disrupt your macros for the […]

5 Vitamins You Should Be Taking and Why

When talking about nutrition, we tend to focus on the big macronutrients – protein, fat and carbohydrates. And, while these are vital to your health, it’s also important that we not forget the little guys, the micronutrients. This group includes things like vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals that all perform necessary functions in your body but […]

What Type of Milk Should You Be Drinking?

There was a time, in the not-so-distant past, during which the term “milk” referred to just one thing: cow’s milk. These days, however, it seems like people are milking just about everything – including a few plants. And, while it’s always good to have options, the staggering array of milks can be a little overwhelming […]

How to Incorporate More Veggies into Your Diet

Even as adults, vegetables can be a tricky thing. You know (hopefully) that you should be getting plenty of vegetables on a daily basis. But, are you actually doing it? Probably not, as it turns out. According to a 2013 survey that looked at the dietary habits of 373,000 American adults, only 13 percent of […]

The Elliptical Illusion: Why Interval Training Burns the Most Fat

I’m sure on Planet X there is a television station live streaming cardio machines at Globo Gyms across the United States. This program provides endless elation to our extraterrestrial friends. Not only is it hard to understand why people would subject themselves to 30-45-60-90 minute low intensity cardio sessions for the pure boredom, but they […]

The Benefits of Pea Protein

When you think of protein powder, there are likely a few standard ingredients that come to mind. Whey and casein are probably among the first. The vegetarians and vegans out there might immediately think of soy or rice or hemp. What about peas? Although the humble split pea isn’t usually thought of as a solid […]

What to Eat During the Week Leading up to Your Marathon

Like all athletes, runners train hard – especially as the actually competition gets closer and closer. Often, though, they tend to neglect their nutrition. To be fair, this might not be a complete oversight. Most of the time, runners genuinely try to eat properly in order to prepare their body for the upcoming race – […]

5 Tips for Training with an Injury

Getting injured while training can be one of the most frustrating and upsetting things that you have to face as an athlete. After all, your workouts are supposed to be making you awesome – not breaking you. Often, it can feel like a betrayal. On top of that, you then have to rethink the way […]

Counting Macros vs. Counting Calories

It’s pretty commonly accepted that, if you want to lose weight or gain weight or do anything that impacts your relationship with the troublesome scale, you need to count your calories. Weight, as the general consensus goes, is the result of calories in versus calories out. If you want to lose weight, then, you simply […]

Top 10 Most Nutritionally Rich Foods

Sadly, the common modern diet is less than ideal – for lots of reasons. In fact, several studies have found that not only is obesity on the rise, but so is malnutrition. Which is sort of an interesting confusing. If people are eating enough food to develop obesity, how can they also be deficient in […]

Don’t Fall Victim to These 3 Dieting Myths

Remember the 1940’s, when smoking made you skinny? Remember five years ago (and still today) when fat made you fat and low-fat, chemical and sugar pumped foods made you thin?
