Stuff We Like

 

There are so many great resources out there for athletes and therapists--below you'll find a few of my favorites.

Disclaimer: I recommend what I use and love. I do participate in the Amazon Affiliates program for the links below, however none of these companies or authors have influenced my promotion of their products.

Therapy and Training


TriggerPoint GRID Foam Roller with Free Online Instructional Videos, Original (13-inch)

I have tried a lot of foam rolling products over the years.  This seems to be the best one as it's a good density of foam, and also I like that it’s hollow and thus easier to pack things in and travel with.

 

Functional Fitness 41 inch Continuous Loop Crossfit Pull up Band

Great for joint mobilizations and distraction work at home, I use the green band for my hip every day before I run or lift.

 

Serious Steel Mobility & Recovery (Floss) Bands

Every athlete and therapist ought to have a roll of floss in their bag.  Great for mobilizing stiff joints like ankles, feet, wrists and elbows.

Please see these videos for demos on how to use.

 

GoFit Door Anchor            

Attach and use your band in any doorway or hotel. I consider this part of my "traveling Chiro kit" as it keeps me healthy on the road.                  

 

CEP Ankle Sleeve

The CEP compression Ankle Sleeve is key for anyone who is recovering from an ankle injury. The compression will provide stability while effecting positive growth and change in the soft tissue around the ankle.

 
 
 

Brooks PureGrit 4 Trail Running Shoe - Men's    

I love this shoe. It’s my favorite shoe Brooks makes due to comfortable and spacious upper, especially in the toe box which helps the foot to behave naturally. The outsole creates nice traction on wet and muddy surfaces and it feels great running on rocky terrain and softer ground alike.                          

 

FAT-Tool Professional Series

These are very high quality professional and personal use tools made by FAT-Tool. The athletes I work with love this tool. It creates rapid change in strength and flexibility in minutes.

 

Nutrition and Supplements


Biotics Research Bio-D-Mulsion Forte Vitamin D

Everyone seems to be talking about Vitamin D these days. Important for immune function, energy levels, and even muscular power. This is my favorite product and what I used as a professional athlete.

 

Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee Starter Kit- Brain Octane Edition

Bulletproof coffee and I have been friends for about 3 years.  I like how this pairs w/ an intermittent fasting program and keeps me sharp and focused at work.  It tastes better than your current cup, guaranteed..

 

Garden of Life Raw Organic Alkalizer and Detoxifier--Green Superfood

I love this product for post training or to sip on in the afternoons in lieu of another cup of coffee. The greens powder from GOL tastes great and really gives you a boost.
