In the sport of Triathlon, AJ Baucco is known for his personality and his style just as much as his race results. As a former punk rock drummer, AJ is very unique in the sport of triathlon. He spent much of his teenage years touring the US with his band, while living out of a van. When he was in his early 20s, a friend introduced him to the sport of triathlon. Triathlon gave AJ direction in his hectic life and it soon began to consume his life all together.
INFINIT started as an idea from one guy, Michael Keiser. His idea was to create a platform where athletes could create an isotonic drink that contained everything you need to race at Ironman. Mike and I were training partners and friends. He told me of his plan on a plane on the way to Kona. When I heard his idea, I was instantly in.
Recently, I was able to get in touch with Nick Chase. Nick is a former active U.S. Air Force member, and even competed on the Air Force triathlon team. After leaving the military Nick started his own coaching company and continues to coach athletes in a variety of endurance sports. Chase is also working on earning his 4th degree, this most recent one in biology. Nick has worked with INFINIT since 2015 to create his own custom formulas for his triathlons and took time out of his day to let us know a little more about himself.
Waking up the morning of the largest cross country ski race in North America and the largest cash purse in the country ($10,000) I look out the window to check out the weather. Temperatures still haven't dipped below freezing, meaning that this will be one of the warmest American Birkebeiner races in recent history. It isn't uncommon for a big temperature swing on race day, but the last few years it has been a cold snap. The body takes time and energy to adjust to changes in temperature and fueling become even more important. My nutrition changes somewhat from warm to cold.
INFINIT Fuels Adventure Racing Team to National Titles.oCal based and INFINIT Sponsored adventure racing team, Off-Course Navigation, conquered the rough Kentucky terrain and battled brutal weather to win the 2015 USARA Open Division National Championship #FueledByINFINIT.
INFINIT Sponsored Athlete Brittany Warly Helps Her Team Win the 2015 USAT Collegiate Nationals. It has been years of playing the balancing act between school and sport. Going into my junior year of mechanical engineering, I definitely underestimated the rigors of my classes and the time that would need to be invested in my academics. It ended up being about 60 hours a week, and training had to take it's place on the back burner for a while.
The newest fad being touted as the “secret to success” for endurance training is to train and eat to become “metabolically efficient”. What exactly does this mean? The term efficiency combined with metabolism sounds like an athlete’s dream, especially to an endurance athlete. After all, efficiency means to “save energy without waste or unnecessary effort.” Well, this surely must be the key to success for endurance performance; go as long as possible and waste as little energy as possible. Unfortunately, this new fad is just that, a FAD! “Metabolic efficiency” training or fueling to enhance performance will come at a cost, a big cost which happens to be your performance.
