While you may not be sweating as intensely when the cold weather rolls in, remaining hydrated is just as important. Drinking an adequate amount of fluid before, during and after a workout is crucial to achieving optimal performance.
The key to keeping yourself accountable is knowing what you’re trying to achieve and setting goals to help you get there.
Goal setting has long been known to be an important part of achieving success or accomplishing your goal. When you “wing-it”, more often than not, you will lose focus at some point along the journey and fall short of achieving whatever it is that you set out to accomplish. By creating specific goals, you can revisit your goal(s) when the going gets tough or you fall off track to help you refocus and get back on track.

Out of thousands of submissions that came in from across the country, Ryan & Alexey had the difficult task of narrowing it down to just 3 riders to take under their wing and equip with everything needed to start training.
Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world and athletes have long been linked with consuming copious amounts of coffee. Before we talk about how coffee can benefit performance AND your overall health, let’s take a look at a few fun facts about coffee.
No matter how you like them, it’s no secret that donuts aren’t exactly considered a “health food.” These yummy pastries are typically packed with simple carbs and saturated fat, so for the average person, they’re probably best enjoyed as an occasional treat. But we’re turning that notion on its head by taking everyone’s favorite morning treat, and reworking the recipe to create a protein-packed option that can actually be used as a light breakfast or post-workout fuel. These delicious cinnamon-sugar coated donuts don’t just have to be a treat. By incorporating protein into the mix, you can actually create a guilt free (or less) option for everyone!
