Spring is here, so you can pack away those heavy winter meals and enjoy the flavors of the season. As an athlete and nutritionist, I prefer my springtime diet to include nutritious, easy-to-prepare, delicious meals. Here are my top three secret weapons for packing clean, powerful nutrients into my diet:
Recently, I read an article comparing indoor and outdoor cycling that basically concluded that you’ll work up a sweat doing both, but nothing compares to the real thing. Respectfully, I disagree. In fact, I do not believe that this is a fair comparison. Here’s why: indoor and outdoor cycling are different.
Winter is over, and spring is here. (Right?? Oh please, please let it really be over.) Maybe your New Year’s resolution – or goal, as I prefer to call it – feels like a distant memory, or maybe you’re already killing it. Either way, spring training season is upon us, so it’s time to switch things into high gear.
Spring is here, and that can only mean one thing: it’s time for vacation! As a busy mom of two, this is both a relief and burden. I’m looking forward to the time away from work, but also kinda freaking out about time away from work. Plus, it’s spring training season, and I’ve got a spring race coming up soon.

Since her diagnosis, Kayla has discovered that riding at CycleBar is one of the few ways she can be active and pain-free. But more than that, Kayla’s determination and positive outlook on life in the face of MS are something that inspire us all! Check out her amazing story:
Humans are creatures of habit. We have routines that keep us sane and organized every day. But, when your workout starts feeling stale, you’re entering a danger zone! Not only do you have less motivation to get it done in the first place, but doing the same exercises over and over can lead to injury, fatigue, and the dreaded plateau.
Sports and music go together like a ballgame and a cold beer. The pre-game pump-up jams, the late-inning rally tunes, even the halftime marching band staples – music plays an undeniable role in any sporting contest for both the athletes and the spectators. (Speaking of which, here’s my favorite icebreaker: If you were a Major League Baseball player, what would your at-bat song be?)
