What I Ate Wednesday With Chase Prime

Let me introduce to you our next “What I Ate Wednesday” videographer:

Chase Prime, STAQ Performance Coach.

Chase has been training at Godspeed (When formerly RPM) for 9 years, way back when he was the only athlete being trained by Lance…in Lance’s basement. My how things have changed! 

He’s been employed by RPM/now Godspeed for 6 years and most enjoys the knowledge within the company and is currently pursuing a degree in Kinesiology/Exercise Science from UAB, set to graduate Fall 2016.

“The educational backgrounds and experience each coach offers is the highest

you can provide to produce results in athletes and adults.

This is why Godspeed excels at being an Elite Training Facility.”

What staples are ALWAYS in your kitchen? 

The one item that is a must for my kitchen is to always have Monster Absolute Zero energy drinks on hand.. People have their coffee, I have my MONSTERS!  What a better way to receive energy and vitamins as well enjoy its delicious taste!

 What’s your favorite/most used kitchen tool(s)?

  I love to grill out on my Green Egg, so any tool I can use for grilling would probably be my favorite.
Do you count calories? Do you ever treat yourself?
I don’t count calories, but I do try to keep myself within the boundaries I set for myself. I always try to consume a source of lean protein, handful of greens, and a healthy carb. I typically will treat myself on the weekends with ice cream or Doritos. 
Why do you choose RivalUs?
Being competitive in activities that require drug testing, I know that rivalus is “informed choice” meaning the company has spent the money and research to make sure their products wont suspend any athlete who might be taking their supplants. This is the BIG reason why I choose RivalUs. Plus their products work! If you stay consistent in supplementation with a quality product, you will only see results!  
 Does eating healthy have to be a burden, expensive and boring?
I would say no, but it does have to be consistent!! Dieting/ eating healthy is HARD!
If it were easy America wouldn’t be the number 1 leader in the world for obesity among it’s citizens. My best advice is to have someone go through the process with you. Hold each other accountable and reward when its necessary and allowed.
That’s why we, your coaches at Godspeed, are here! Send us those food journals via Wodify!
What do you find the biggest misconception is in terms of reaching fitness/physical/nutrition goals?
 People need to realize that its a process. Adults/ athletes often want the unattainable within weeks, when it may take years. This comes with setting goals that are realistic for the individual. Set short term, half term, and long terms goals for yourself. Focus on the short term to build a foundation for the long term goals.  Athletes accomplishing their goals is a motivation booster.
So, my advice is to remind athletes/adults that its a process. A process that could take time, but putting in the work/hours is only going to better yourself mentally and most of all physically, and that may be better than the original long term goal itself.
