A Beginner's Triathlon Training Journey, Backed by Science

By Ross Yellin, Esq. & Ashley Reaver, RD Jun 22, 2017

From CrossFit’s finest, to world record-holding triathletes, to pro ballers, we work with some of the best athletes in the world. They inspire us to make InsideTracker the authority on what the body needs to train properly, recover effectively, and most importantly, perform at 110% when it comes time for the main event.

They also inspire us on a personal level. No, we’re not going for Olympic gold anytime soon. But a noteworthy finish line is certainly on our horizon – we’re headed for Ironman Maine 70.3 this August. So please consider this post your official invitation to join us for the training ride as we – Ross and Ashley, InsideTracker's own amateur triathletes – share weekly recaps of our progress (and pain) right here on the blog!

Blood Biomarker Data: The Coeur of Your Performance

By Mariah Bridges Jun 15, 2017

At InsideTracker, we are all about personalization. Personalized nutrition, personalized lifestyle changes, and personalized supplement recommendations. But even while personalization is the name of our game, we know that sometimes, it’s important to take a look at the broader picture in addition to the details.

What do we mean by that? Well, take the Coeur Ambassador Group for example. Each team member wants their own personalized approach, but how about their captain and leaders? For them, clicking through account after account could be a never ending task, but with InsideTracker, they can take a look at the group as a whole. From there, they can provide tips to help everyone on the team reach their goals.

We sat down with Coeur Co-Founder and Team Captain, Hailey Manning, to find out why Coeur decided to partner with InsideTracker, and what a difference it can make when a team takes a scientific approach to training.

How This Inspiring Mother Daughter Duo Keep Each Other Healthy

By Ross Yellin, Esq. May 10, 2017

She started caring for you even before you were born. Eating the right foods, avoiding the bad ones. Monitoring every step of her pregnancy to ensure you were a happy, healthy baby. And that didn't stop once you were born. As is often the case, her life likely became a whole lot more about yours. So now that it's her big day, Mother's Day, how do you say thank you to mom?

Stevie Lyn Smith is an InsideTracker athlete and Registered Dietitian who jumped at the chance to give more than flowers. Stevie is always worrying about her mother’s health, thanks to a bit of sub-par family health history, and she decided that giving InsideTracker to the woman who gave her life was a good way to show how much she cares about her.  

I had the pleasure of chatting with Stevie to discuss all things InsideTracker and triathlon training – she shares both with her mom, Lisa Beaser – and most importantly, how they laugh their way through it all.

By Meghan Johnson Mar 11, 2012

 

When I talk with athletes, they always wonder how fast I can go and how many watts I push. I get a lot of questions about power meters and GPS devices. But those are just tools to measure outcomes of a few factors; good training, good equipment and good body chemistry.
