Crushes

We are made to create. As an athlete and coach, I'm ultimately about unleashing imagination, igniting creativity. When we build strength, we think more boldly about our lives, more courageously about the art and work and love we dream of creating. I train to build ferocity that spills into generosity: generative, contagious creativity. 

I'm inspired to partner with teams that are building community along with visionary products. Here are my faves.

Winter #SweatCouture Crushes

This season's super heroine picks from Carbon38, the white hot nucleus of the Athleisure eruption. Magic Pants. Fierce tops. Fitspiration. The locker room of my dreams. I'm passing along the love.

Seriously digging P.E. Nation's old school gym class glam:

Varley's fierce grace

Alo Yoga's slashed stained glass (AND super soft!)

I blame unintended extra miles on Ultracor

Who says base layers have to be boring? Wanna go for a run?

Packing Light: CARAA SPORT

A revolutionary bag. A transportive community. 

Aaron Luo is a visionary. An entrepreneur with deep roots in design and manufacturing, with a passion to celebrate women's athleticism. His energy and high standards are contagious, and I couldn't be more excited to partner with his team on the launch of CARAA SPORT bags, which seamlessly transition from sweat parties to all business to after hours. Luxe materials, smart compartments, tech-savvy. Design as sleek, edgy, and multifaceted as you.

I love that CAARA is as committed to creating a network of inspiring women as to creating a one-of-a-kind bag. I shared what moves me and keeps me moving in the first edition of #CARAALIFE; watch out for more from athletic, imaginative women who are shaping their worlds. And pack light. So we can carry each other.

Greens By Any Means! My Favorite Superfood Greens Supplement

Organifi is my favorite greens superfood supplement. I spend a lot of time researching the most nutrient-dense foods and believe whole-heartedly in non-processed, whole foods as the foundation of an optimal diet. This is among the few supplements I use, blended in my daily smoothie or stirred into a drink when I'm on the road, and I feel the difference in energy, recovery, and immunity when I run out.

Organifi is incredibly nutrient-dense and includes de-toxifing green algae chlorella, spirulina, inflammation-fighting turmeric and ashwagandha (all tough to get outside of supplement form), and antioxidant-rich, energizing matcha and wheatgrass. Major plus: it tastes good, thanks to fresh mint. And this 15% off code: HEARTWARD15

Mushroom Superpowers

Ancient healer. Innovative form. Mushrooms have been used as superfoods and medicines for millennia. I love what the young company Four Sigmatic is doing to make the most nutrient-dense and medicinally powerful mushrooms accessible and enjoyable and to educate people on ancient wisdom and modern research (their Mushroom Academy video series entertains & dives deep). They make mushrooms drinkable! The mushroom 'coffee's' are delicious and next level anti-oxidant dense, immune boosting, adrenal balancing, long-term energizing elixirs.

Adaptogenic Elixir

I've been starting my day with this adaptogenic herb complex, Tianchi, aimed at restoring the body's whole energy system — mental, emotional, physical, and intellectual. Densely concentrated extracts of high quality, organic herbs including Ashwagandha, Lycium (Goji), Reishi mushroom, Schizandra, Rhodiola, Ecklonia Cava, Eleuthero, and many other ancient energizing herbs in an extraordinary blend that tastes amazingly refreshing. I feel the difference in focus and energy during my meditation and workouts. Use code JOYMETRIC for 10% off.
