Eat a rainbow often!
Aim for 3 colors on your plate

Aim for 3 colors on your dinner plate every night this week.  Eating a variety of colors is not only pleasing to the eye, but it also provides the body with natural forms of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that help to repair and protect your body.


Make sure there are 3 colors on your plate coming from fruits and veggies.

Member Testimonials

I have a long history of working out in gyms, with personal trainers, running Triathlons, half marathons and body building. I have been working out at WITH Performance for a month now. WITH Performance is different than anything I have ever been exposed to. They have taken me to a place that I have not experienced. WITH Performance staff members are very knowledgeable and have a variety of experiences themselves.

The traditional workout this is not! My personal goals are the priority for the staff and highly considered whether they are physical, nutritional and even more importantly, my mindset goal. Each workout is based on computer results that are personally designed for me and my stated goals. Including the cardio, giving me high intensity days and recovery day workout plans as well. There are accountability provisions in place to keep me on track too.

I observe the staff constantly involved in new training techniques and learning more themselves in order to better help us.

I really feel at home when I am there. The staff all know my name and always come and speak to me. I feel like I am living in Cheers, "where everybody knows my name".

The view of the river is breathtaking (where else can you watch Bald Eagles and flocks of geese while training) the facility is always neat and clean and the bathrooms rock!

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.
