Got Fit?: Summer Fitness Product & Nutrition Essentials from Kryofit Sport & OWYN


Have you not been working on your fitness game all throughout Winter?  For shame!  Not only is the Winter perfect for burrowing comfort food into our mouths like we actually hibernate, but it's also the opportune season to work on transforming that extra layer of 'blubber' into 'beach buffness' before it comes time to trade in the snorkel for the swimsuit.  Well some didn't get the memo and that's fine.  The only drawback is that if you want to do any routines outside then the temps are warmer; but have no fear!  If you're anything like me and are prone to sweat like a Coke bottle at a barbecue when the temps rise about 75 degrees then I've come across a new product that has helped me so I'm sharing the wealth.

Kryofit Sports aims to make it easier for you to tackle that last set or run that last mile with their cooling gear that reduces heat illness and boosts performance.  Alan Brockway birthed Kryofit, a line of ice-cold compression Targeted Thermal Support (TTS) sleeves that aim to prevent heat illness before it occurs.  The idea is to use the ice pods in the sleeves to directly cool the blood of the wearer thereby keeping their muscles and joints cooler rather than targeting large muscle groups.  The result is a very useful and proven cooling system that allows for prevention of injury.  

Brockway has 15 years of medical experience and his Kryofit invention has benefitted many pro-athletes across the arenas of boxing, cross-fitness, triathlon, tennis, soccer and volleyball and leagues like the NFL, UFC, MMA fighting and AAA baseball.  He found that developing a targeted way to keep proactively cool during workouts helped him to avoid the potentially serious dangers of overheating.  The pods are frozen and then slipped into the key designated areas of the various compression sleeves and units zeroing in on heat-trap areas with cooling targets.  They have a cooling time of 45 minutes and can target over 8 cooling zones.   They also integrate with any and practically all of your fitness and workout gear and are suitable for any age, sport, athlete or procrastinator looking not to overheat as they tread toward their fitness goal.  



The full line of Kryofit sleeves and units are available now at KryofitSport.com.  

Now after you've trained, remember to get your protein!  You may remember my coverage of plant-based protein drinks last week here, with great drinkable pre or post-workout ways to get your soy-free, dairy-free and non-GMO protein.  Well OWYN also has a wonderful and very tasty, I must say, line of protein powders in convenient on-the-go packets.


OWYN Ultimate Wellness 100% Plant-based Protein Powders are perfect ways to get a flavorful 20 grams of protein.  Then to sweeten the deal, each powder in the line also offers 500mg of omegas, 1B CFU probiotics, trace minerals and a full serving of greens per serving.  Also, if you haven't guessed by now, they're vegan and free of the top 8 allergens!!!  I add a packet to my post workout smoothies and tailor the smoothies to the specific flavor of the OWYN powder.  Check out a couple of my smoothie options below and remember whether preventing heat illness with Kryofit or sustainably getting a great wealth of nutrition from OWYN Protein Powders, always remember to take the strides to take of your body and become the best you!

My Post-Workout Fruit/Breakfast Smoothie with OWYN 

1            Packet OWYN Ultimate Wellness + Energy 100% Plant-based Protein Powder-Vanilla
3-4         Ice Cubes
2-3         Frozen Strawberries
10-20     Frozen Blueberries
1            Piece of fresh scored Turmeric (frozen preferably as it is prone to stain and about the size of      
              an adult pinky or 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder)
1            Long slice of fresh Papaya (makes about 8 small wedges)       
1            Long slice of fresh Pineapple (makes about 8 small wedges)
1            Piece of fresh cut Ginger (about the size of a tablespoon)
5-10       Rounds of fresh Black Pepper from a mill (to activate & boost the properties of the turmeric)
1            Fresh cut Kiwi
2-3         Ounces of Almond Milk (unsweetened) 

Into your blender, start with the frozen ingredients first then the fresh and lastly the powder and milk.  Blend ingredients.  OWYN Vanilla gives the smoothie a nice full-bodied creaminess with a great honest vanilla flavor not muddied up by anything artificial-tasting.

For the Cold Brew Coffee flavor, I like to add a handful or raw almonds, 3 tablespoons of steel cut oats and unsweetened almond like to the ingredients above.  The thickness from the oats, almonds and almond milk together with the earthy flavor of the OWYN Cold Brew Coffee gives the smoothie a delicious iced-coffee milkshake quality.


 Go forth and be the best you!!!
