New sports nutrition products
New meal replacement: Solution 5 vanilla
Meal replacements are just what they sound like, convenient replacements to a whole food meal. Using these are a great way to make sure you are getting the nutrients you need in a quick shake. Solution 5 is the ideal blend of protein, high fiber carbs, good quality fats and phytonutrients, giving your body ultimate nourishment, plus helping assist with fat loss and muscle gain. Delicious and curbs your appetite!
New natural whey isolate: American Whey
There’s no question that whey protein is one of the foundational supplements of any exercise enthusiasts stack. However, there are many different types of whey. One of the differentiating factors is the flavoring. Some prefer to stay away from artificial sweetners. If you fall into this category, then this is the protein for you! Not only does it mix and taste incredible, but American Whey is an isolate, meaning it is one of the purest forms available! Comes in vanilla, chocolate and Ryan’s favorite, banana (try it in your cereal!)
New protein bar: Kind bars
Speaking of natural, protein bars fall into the same scenario as powders do with sweetners. We have brought in a new bar that not only has no artificial sweetners, but is also gluten free! This all natural bar is a nice snack size to tide you over, or grab two for a meal replacement!
Training tip: Don’t quit, deload
Often we hear customers say “I’m taking a week off” for a variety of reasons. While hopefully their intention is good to allow for recovery, there is a better way to accomplish this. Progressing your training intensity is important and instead of risking falling off the wagon, or to halt progress, back off your training level by 50% for a week. Studies show muscle can atrophy (breakdown) in as little as 4 days, so by getting the blood in the muscles, keep your metabolism cranking and promote healing, just back it off and keep going to the gym. We recommend some form of deload very 4-6 weeks. Contact one of our certified trainers if you want to have us help you discover these and design a program to accelerate your progress.
Nutrition tip: Eating purposefully
Often when people are struggling with their food intake, we find that they commonly say “they just grab whatever is around”. This is a bad approach as you likely aren’t getting the nutrients your body needs or too many of others. Eating purposefully means to plan your meals out and know what you are going to eat. It’s not saying you can’t enjoy a variety or taste, but rather eat with the purpose to get the protein, carbs and fats your body needs. For more information or a customized meal plan/coaching, contact Ryan, a certified sports nutrition specialist to set up an appointment.
Supplement tip: Stay healthy with antioxidants
While performance is a main driver in supplement programs, let’s not ignore just basic health. Antioxidants can be thought of as your “scrubbing bubbles” for your body. When you do everyday activities, a by-product of these are free radicals, which basically cause cellular damage. Antioxidants attach themselves to these and neutralize them. After workouts is a key time for this, plus during the day (breakfast and dinner). Common antioxidants include:
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Recipe: Quinoa, your new favorite side dish
Quinoa is a grain, a staple for the Incas, that is unique in that it is a complete protein. The taste/texture is similar to brown rice and it is very versatile. Here is one of our favorites:
Ingredients: 1 cup quinoa, 1 cup brown rice, 1/4 cup MCT or olive oil, sodium free bullion, 4 cups hot water, 2 cups mixed veggies, serves 6-8.
Rinse Quinoa, then saute in a skillet w/oil till golden brown. Next, add brown rice, bullion and water, bring to a boil and then let simmer till all water is absorbed (about 45 min). As it gets close to being done, stir in veggies, cook for another 5-10 minutes. Serve as a side dish with about anything! Pick up your quinoa today at Nutri-Sport and give it a try!

This is an incredible way to get a quick, non-invasive, therapeutic massage. What looks like a tanning bed is actually a chamber that has 40 high-pressure jets that go from your feet to your neck pulsating heated water. You don’t get wet though and are fully dressed. There is a sheath between you and the water, so you just lay there, relax and enjoy! A great pick-me-up over lunch, after workouts, or as a maintenance in between intense deep tissue work. Only $1.00 per minute it is a great way to treat yourself (or someone you know). Swing in and try it out!
