Gravel racing has seen an upswing in popularity and participation in recent years — but why? In this mini episode, Kristi Mohn and Michelle Duffy, who work on the Life Time Athletic Events team, share more about this sport, how it’s different from other types of cycling, and why it’s something more people — from casual riders to professional athletes — are taking part in.
A month or so into the New Year, it’s common for people to fall off their goals. Often this isn’t for a lack of want or will, but rather not having the right program in place. Life Time Talks cohosts Jamie Martin and David Freeman share how they’re personally approaching their own aspirations this year, explain the reasons why having a program can be a game-changer, and offer considerations to help you move forward on your own plan.
If you ask any of the Life Time dietitians — including this episode’s guest, Paul Krieger, RD, CPT — they’ll note that one of the most important things you can do for your nutrition is make sure you’re consuming enough quality protein. Kriegler explains why this macronutrient is so critical for health, and he shares how much protein you need, what animal and plant sources are the best, and ways to support your body in properly digesting and absorbing it.
