Focus on the critical 20% and see the biggest results.

Wouldn’t you like to work less and get the same or better results? I sure would. It’s easier than you might believe. Richard Koch in his book, The 80/20 Principle, defines this secret to success.

Spa Water…reFRESH yourself

The simple secret to a healthy diet is water.

Our body is made up of 75 to 80% water when we are babies.  As we get older, this percentage decreases to anywhere from 50-65% depending on if you are a man or a woman.  Our brains are 85% water and our bones are 10-15% water.  I guess you get the picture– WATER IS ESSENTIAL TO LIFE!

CEP Allsports Calf Sleeves

Skitz Pick

Call it “Spanx” for athletes!  I love compression gear!  I own compression shirts, shorts, capris, socks and now calf sleeves.

 I race in them and wear them to speed my recoveries from hard workouts.  The tightness feels like a massage while you’re working out.  Similar to taping, except without the restriction of movement, compression gear provides support in all the right places.

Available in white, black, red, green, pink, and blue
