Beat the Heat

HELLO ALL!!, Well we are in the middle of a hot, hot, hot summer. This is the time of year when those summertime training woes start to hit. One way to look at it is that all of this tough training in the heat will pay off in the fall. One of the most important items is hydration, hydration, hydration. I have tried numerous of electrolyte drinks, gel shots, bars, and recovery products. I have been training in this heat for over ten years in Arizona and now for three in Texas. My favorite endurance products come from Hammer Nutrition. They don't contain those high fructose corn syrups and numerous dyes or colorings. They are more natural and the biggest thing is that they are gentle on the stomach. They have a full line of products from powders to capsules to gels and bars. Check out their website hammernutrition.com. Also, don't forget those fruits and dark, leafy vegetables, whole grain pastas, and lean meats. Refueling becomes more important as we push beyond our physical limits. Try to choose nutrient dense foods. More BANG FOR THE BUCK!! ENJOY the summer!! Trainer Todd

Well, I would like to start by saying THANK YOU!! I appreciate every one's support and words of encouragement through this transition to Over The Edge Fitness. It has been a dream of mine since I can remember. In case you haven't heard, I'm training in two locations. I will be at Gym One in Central Austin at Mopac & Anderson Ln a few days a week. I will spend the rest of my time in Lakeway. YESSSS, Lakeway! This is an exciting and unique training facility. I have 600 square feet of my own space as well as access to an indoor activity room and outside training fields. This is a non membership facility with clean locker rooms and plenty of room to get those GREAT workouts done. I know Lakeway sounds far, but we are only 8 miles past the dam off of 620. It's worth the drive. I have a few tricks up my sleeve for the coming weeks. Please check out my website @ overtheedgefitness.net. My web guy put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears in this. You all know how I harp at you during training, so just imagine what my web guy had to endure!! Please feel free to post feedback, and questions or concerns that you may have about this transition. I also welcome any discussion issues that you may have. ARE YOU READY? Trainer Todd
