Advice from Justin
 

The Super Bowl may rival Thanksgiving as the #1 gorging day of the year - this is not much of a problem, truly, since sustainable, healthy eating is not about being perfect 100% of the time, but following the 80/20 rule (eating well 80% of the time and enjoying unhealthy foods the other 20%).  Think of this as your nutritional "red zone" - what you do inside the 20.

 

Often "healthy" party or holiday recipes involve replacing your favorite foods with fat-free this or low-sodium that - which are often not worth the trade-off.  This year, the fitness gurus at www.Greatist.com have scoured the web for Super Bowl recipes that actually have flavor and are relatively easy to make:  15 Healthier Super Bowl Recipes.  I will contribute to the party myself by sharing my soon-to-be-famous lettuce wraps recipe.

 

As with the holidays, please enjoy food and drinks on Super Sunday, but maybe follow a "90/10" rule for the days leading and following the game, so that your nutrition and fitness goals stay within reach.

 

Hoping for a good game, good company, and great food this weekend!

Member Testimonials

WITH Performance has filled the right need at the right time as I prepare for my first Ironman. The weekly focus on strength with inclusive prehab oriented to my personal weak points makes this an invaluable service! I have been very pleased with the guided workouts as well as the ability to do bike or treadmill sessions onsite. I also look forward to the convenience of having massage and physical therapy services onsite if they are needed!

I have been with Shawn for three years before WITH.  With Shawn's support and expertise, I went from a couch potato to a 63 year old woman who ran her first marathon!  WITH Performance continues to support and motivate me to be the best I can be.

In 2013 I was given the opportunity to work with Shawn Burke as he coached me for my first Ironman Triathlon.  Shawn completely prepared me for this major event but due to unforeseen circumstances with my nutrition, I did not cross the finish line.  When he explained that WITH Performance would be in place in time to train again for Ironman 2014 I could not have been more excited!  Training at WITH has been an amazing experience and I have so far logged over 500 bike miles in pre-season.  The equipment is state of the art and is helping me to work in the areas that I am weak as well as pushing me harder than ever before.  The coaches are very knowledgeable, encouraging, and are helping me to be the athlete I need to be for my goals.  I am so impressed with my results, I have signed up my 16 year old son.  I highly recommend WITH Performance for any person, of any age and ability because WITH cares about the overall health of our community!
