New to Trimarni.....Sport Nutrition Product Reviews!

At Trimarni, we are big proponents of engineered sport nutrition products designed to be used during training and racing in an effort to provide a precise amount of electrolytes, fluids and carbohydrates on an hourly basis in an effort to support the many metabolic processes that can optimize performance and health. We do not prescribe to any extreme styles of manipulating the diet or fueling/hydration methods in an effort to gain the competitive edge.
Sport nutrition products are designed and marketed for athletes but because of the high sugar and calorie content, sport drinks have received a bad reputation from society. This has caused many athletes to fear or worry the usage of sport nutrition products during training and racing.  Since many sport nutrition products have been termed "unhealthy", there's been a trend for athletes to forgo the use of sport nutrition products and use real food instead, assuming that a more "natural" real food product will be j…

My 2018 Food Trend Predictions

As a Board Certified Sport Dietitian and coach, I enjoy following food trends to see what my athletes are going to be asking me about throughout the year. Back in 2015, I wrote an article for Ironman.com featuring my eight food trends to watch out for and I think I did pretty well with my predictions. 

Kale, cauliflower rice, avocado toast, chia seed pudding, coconut oil, grain and gluten-free diets, and nut butters are among the many trend-worthy foods of the past that continue to appear on restaurant and fast food menus and in processed snacks and desserts. 

Food trends are widespread and contagious. Even if you hate kale, you learn to appreciate the dirt-like, bitter taste because you gravitate to what’s popular in an effort to fit in. In the health, fitness, and even endurance sub-cultures, our choices are often based more on popularity than on taste. 
Although it’s difficult to forecast the future, I made another attempt with my food trend predictions for 2018 in my latest Ironman.c…

Helping someone with an eating disorder

For many people, the New Year welcomes a great opportunity for change as it relates to health, wellness and diet. But among all of the chatter regarding weight loss, diet plans and fitness, at least 30 million people of all ages and genders are suffering from eating disorders in the US. Every 62 minutes, at least one person dies as a direct result from an eating disorder and eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness.

For any individual who is currently struggling with an eating disorder, it can be very difficult to wake up on January 1st and simply stop the behaviors associated with a mental health condition. Beyond acceptance of a problem, seeking the appropriate care can be difficult. Denial, shame, misconceptions, money/insurance, stigma and fear can prevent someone from getting the necessary help/treatment needed.

If you know someone who may have an eating disorder, it can be very difficult to watch/see that person damage his/her health. Eating disord…

Your 2017 in Review & 2018 Looking Ahead

The end of the year signifies the turn of a page in yet another chapter of your life story. There could not be a better time than right now to take the time to reflect on the last 365 days. Whether you choose to reflect on your life through the lens of being an athlete or as a leader, parent, friend, employer or because you want change in your career or personal life, reflection fosters self-awareness and change may help you achieve greatness in 2018.

Take some time to reflect on 2017 as you answer the following questions:  What events/moments went on your highlight reel?
Your brain will most likely remember more of the negatives than the positives. Acknowledge what went well, the goals that you achieved and the events/experiences that made you feel good.  
Acknowledge your biggest fans and supporters 
Considering all that you have been through over the past year, who played an important role in your life? Express gratitude to those who made a difference in your life. 
How did you grow thi…

2018 Trimarni kits - ORDER NOW!

We are so excited that the time has finally come to open our store with our 2018 Trimarni team kits. 
We had so much positive feedback from our kit design in 2017 that we decided to keep with a similar design and to only slightly change the background of the kits for a slightly new and fresh look. And with much request, we will now offer my 2017 pink kit design to the ladies. We are once again working with Canari Cycling for the 6th year in a row as we have been so pleased with their continued dedication to providing our team with quality, affordable and functional custom gear, never overlooking any detail.  For the females, you can choose between the black/grey kit or pink kit.

For the males, you have the black/grey kit as your only option. If you are interested in ordering, our kit store will only be open for two weeks (the store will close on January 12th, 2018). Don't miss this limited time to get your Trimarni kit for training/racing in your 2018 season.

The following kit options…
