We at Godspeed want to give you at Godspeed a visual nutritional peek into a day in the life of our coaches.
Ever wondered how Blake got to look like, well, Blake? Those arms though. Curious how Chase gets those gams or how Austin looks like a miniature version of Lance?
Good, we thought you’d be interested! Video one of this series is with Coach Blake and we think you’ll like what you see!
Check out this video:
Wasn’t that a great video?!
Aww, now we’re blushing…but we’re not done yet…
We also took a moment to sit down with Blake and dig a little deeper, ask some questions that inquiring minds would like to know, so keep reading to learn more:
If we were to stop by your house unannounced (which reminds me, I’ve been meaning to invite myself over), what would we always find in your pantry/fridge?
Lean protein (chicken, steak, fish)
Lots of greens (spinach, broccoli, brussel sprouts)
Peanut butter (white chocolate wonderful, skippy all natural super chunk)
Avocados, olive oil
RivalUs Protein powder with 2% milk to mix
Sweet potatoes, quinoa
Rice cakes, raw almonds, carrots, hummus
Have you found a common misconception (we know people be crazy) linked to nutrition and reaching desired fitness goals?
I’d have to say there’s two common misconceptions:
First, I think nutrition is incredibly overlooked in relation to meeting fitness goals. I see so many individuals who give it their all 7 days/week in the gym, but simply due to their lack of focus on nutrition, they don’t see desired results. Nutrition is to Fitness like Thrusters are to Fran (you’re favorite lady). You can’t have one without the other. Nutrition either helps your body prepare for workouts and the recovery following or it doesn’t, it’s as simple as that.
Second, the term “cheat meal” is incredibly misused. If I’ve seen it once, I’ve seen it 1,000 times! Clients will eat so well during the week only to go into “all you can eat mode” starting 5 o’clock Friday evening. They think congratulating themselves on a job well done with burgers, fries, drinks, ice cream, etc., isn’t a big deal. It so is. Every time, they overload on calories through the weekend, starting their next week off already in caloric overload, ultimately not seeing the results they desire.
So, do you have a plan for us 5 o’clock Friday Food Party attendees? (My fingers are crossed!)
Solution? Yes, I’ve found two weeks to be a magical number. Go two weeks without cheating and you’ll find that your insatiable desire to cheat has lessened substantially. Accountability is key! (Hint: submit your food journals!)
(I’m not saying no cheats ever, I’m saying no cheats for two weeks, then we’ll talk)
Why/How do you choose your supplements. There’s SO many out there and I immediately break out in a cold sweat just walking into GNC or down the protein aisle at Walmart! Supplement Overload! SOS!
Well, I’ve tried a LOT of supplements in my 33 years. After testing multiple types and brands through Godspeed, we’ve narrowed it down to one, RivalUs. It’s what’s on the shelf in the facility and it’s what’s on the shelf in my home. Why? Because I believe it’s the best. Here’s why:
-#1 supplement taken by professional athletes
-all of the products taste good
-backed by expert research
-backed by independent third party testing (Informed Choice)
-truly has taken my training to the next level
It can be overwhelming, so find me and ask me your questions, I’ll work with you to decide what you should take when and why. Educating is key!
That’s a wrap! Stay tuned for the next episode of “What I Ate Wednesday With…”
