Why Do You Train?

Why Do You Train? Written by Bryce Smith Why Do You Train? A friend of my posed this question to me the other day, so I thought I’d touch on the subject a bit and share my thoughts as to why it is important to train. It seems like a simple question at first.

Still or Sparkling?

Still or Sparkling? Written by Lindsey Johnson Ok I’ll admit it – I’m addicted. And by addicted, I mean obsessed! It’s been going on for a long time and I can’t seem to stop. I guess regular water for me just doesn’t have that “spark”. I got tired of drinking just water all the time and eating “clean” took away all my delicious drink options. I need more. I’m talking about my huge obsession with sparkling water.  I won’t name names, but there are other coaches who have reached equal levels of shall we say ‘reliance’ on the same product. I’ll go

Where is my Psoas and why is it important? Written by Melissa Hurley The Psoas is the primary connector between the torso and the leg.

The hip flexors can become short and tight if you spend most of

The SAID Principle

The SAID Principle Written by Bryan Miller The SAID principle (Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands) is one of the foundations of Sport Science. The first part of the principle simply states: If you want to get better at something, you must do that something over and over until you are better at it. If you want to play baseball like Derek Jeter, you need to play baseball – a lot.

Get Started Now with Pete’s Paleo

Get Started Now with Pete’s Paleo Written by Peter Servold, Founder of Pete’s Paleo – with Introduction by C.J. Martin (C.J.’s Note – A couple of weeks ago I told Pete that I needed 10 meals per week for the entire month of December. My reasoning was simple…December is a crazy month with the holidays – and the overwhelming presence of sugary foods. I KNOW there will be nights that I need to do things other than cook and eat a nice meal – like shop for gifts or entertain out of town guests. I also KNOW that I am
