    What have you accomplished in your life that you're most proud of? -There are numerous journeys that I am still on life with many proud moments. I know what I hope the end goals should look like and use those proud moments to keep me moving forward and fuel the journey. Let’s get coffee or drinks and talk more in depth about both of our proudest accomplishments. If you could take 3 months off and do whatever you wanted, what would that time look like? -Honestly, I am a home body and would call Akron home base during this 3-month period. So, I would buy a jet and pour a landing strip somewhere within 5 minutes of my house and fly somewhere new in the country ....

  • Protein: What the Big Deal Here!?

    Protein: What the Big Deal Here!?

    This is a question we get all the time at Trak Atheltics: “Protein, how much, how often, and why is it so important!?. I’m sure you’ve wondered at times yourself. Our goal is to educate you on why we make certain recommendations so you can go forward making better decisions on your own. If we can get you to a place where you are letting others know why you do what you do, then we’ll be happy people. Here is a clear and concise explanation of why we want you to consume protein. At TrAk we believe protein is vital to overall health. If possible, every meal you have should contain protein; specifically, some form of complete protein. This is typically easier with ....

  • The "Over-Scheduled Mom"Syndrome and How to Get Out of It!

    The "Over-Scheduled Mom"Syndrome and How to Get Out of It!

    Have you ever said "yes" to too many events, programs, playdates, work requests and well, anything and everything that came your way? Sometimes the situation works out, and we “guessed” right and can manage, other times we're wrong. Plain wrong and our days are so crazy and overloaded that we can barely even function. This is the classic "Over-Scheduled Mom" syndrome. Do you know it? Maybe you know it too well! I am here to tell you that just because we were wrong in our ability to forecast our energy levels and use of time, doesn’t mean we have to forge ahead in misery, doing a ton of things that are not only unsustainable, but that make our lives ....

  • Out of my comfort-zone and...how did I get here?

    Out of my comfort-zone and...how did I get here?

    Happy Valentine’s Day from a dorm in the frozen tundra of Canada! Okay. I overstated. I am living on a Navy Base (which is just like a dorm) just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia and although it’s not the tundra, it feels like it when the wind blows a balmy 10 degrees Fahrenheit in my face. This past Wednesday I had a moment (or like 20 moments) of my heart beating so fast I thought it was going to jump out of my chest. Yep, I had the straight-up “oh shit” moment. It came when we played our first intersquad game. It was the first three innings I have pitched since 2016. And I wasn’t facing duds either. I was facing some of the best ....

  • The Problem with THAT Coffee Chain

    The Problem with THAT Coffee Chain

    I was in Starbucks over the weekend with my daughter Grace and the line WAS NOT MOVING. You know the deal right? If you are a real coffee drinker like me, you like it black, which means it takes about two second for the barista to get together for you...when the line is moving. And you know why the line wasn't moving right? You may have even been the reason. It's winter. And that means "seasonal drinks". Yep, the ones that take 10min to make and hold up the honest coffee drinkers in line. But...I digress. So I couldn't help but notice how many people had ordered the foofy (yes foofy) drinks. Now there is no problem with this...other than no on realizes just how harmful these are to ....

  • Eating After the Workout

    Eating After the Workout

    Eating After the Workout - Is the Clock Running!?
    We receive a couple common questions here at TrAk and one that pops up the most is what should someone eat right after a workout, is there a specific time limit that they HAVE to eat between, and if they don’t eat within this limit, is their workout pointless... The conversation starts something like this: “So… I read an article that said everything I did at the gym is basically wasted if I don’t eat protein within the next 30 mins, is that true?”. Our long answer; Yes, you should get some protein and carbs back in your system; BUT don’t feel the pressure of 30 mins. ....

  • Be selfish about your health!

    Be selfish about your health!

    “You can’t pour from an empty cup” – The most clique but truest statement ever. YOU are an awesome, valuable person and have so much to offer others and share to them. However, you cannot offer any of what you want to give to others: Love, knowledge, compassion, etc. if you pour from a half empty cup. You need to focus on filling yours first. There is a reason why on an airplane, the flight attendants tell you to put your breathing mask on first before your child. You can’t help them if you don’t help yourself. You need to be more selfish when it comes to your health and fitness. Most of us know health and fitness is important but we struggle ....

  • Your Secret Superpower for Success

    Your Secret Superpower for Success

    What if we told you that you can change your life just by simply changing your thoughts? How you talk to yourself internally matters. It can make or break a new fitness routine, self-confidence, diet, or habit that you set out to achieve. You (for the most part) can’t go more than 3 secs without a thought, creating images and your total world within your head. This makes your self-talk a superpower within you, capable of shaping your universe! Much like all superpowers though they can be used both positively or negatively. SO - You have a superpower of positive self-talk, now where is your cape and how do you use it!? In order to better understand your new-found superpower, ....
