I discovered First Endurance products back in 2008 as I was preparing for my first Ironman. I have continued to use their supplements now that my focus is back to running. These are the most researched, tested, and scientifically validated performance enhancing products on the market. Their online community is devoted to helping you get the most of your training. There's a reason more of the top triathletes, cyclists and ultrarunners use them more than any other products on the market. Find out for yourself!
When it comes to massage therapy, John Stiner is in a league of his own. I'm fortunate enough to work with John several times a month, and I can honestly say I'm a better runner because of him. John also has a running background and has worked with some of the top distance runners in the world. His services go way beyond massage therapy. After seeing John I recover faster and get more out of my future workouts. Check him out. I promise you'll be amazed.
I've been working with Lori at Progress Physical Therapy since 2008. Anytime I have an injury that looks like it's going to be more than a little niggle, I see her right away. Lori has always been able to quickly diagnose the issue, finding the imbalance and weakness in my body that is ultimately causing the injury, and quickly gets me on the road to permanent recovery. Lori has worked with many types of professional and elite athletes and is the most dedicated and talented PT I've ever worked with. Additionally, Progress PT takes care of all my custom running orthotics which are an essential part of keeping me healthy.
