What I drink


“I have to be at the gym at 5am everyday, so I need a kick in the butt to get me going. Celsius never lets me down and gives me the energy I need early on and without the jitters or crash. They are also flavorful without being too much, especially in the morning.”

Celcius Drink
Functional Essential Energy Drink
A better-for-you, premium alternative to traditional energy drinks.

Slate Milk

“This is one of my favorite ways to get my protein in during the day. It’s ultra filtered chocolate milk that tastes delicious – how can you go wrong? It’s my favorite way to refuel after a tough strength training workout because it tastes more like a treat than anything.”

Slate Cans
Core Variety Pack
All three lactose free flavors have 20g protein, 0g added sugar, and 1g net carbs.

My training stack

Garmin Forerunner 245

“I’ve been wearing one since 2018 and haven’t stopped since then. Garmin has all of the features you need to keep track of your health and wellness, whether you’re using it to clock your mileage on a training run, or check your heartbeat during a strength training workout. Plus, it’s easy to use and incredibly durable.”

Forerunner 245
This GPS smartwatch tracks your stats, crunches the numbers and gets to know all about your performance.

PANATTA equipment

“I think this is the best equipment company on the market. The design and biomechanics are second to none. You can tell when you use any piece of their equipment that it’s built by people who actually workout. I’ve added a few pieces in my gym, including the Dual Chest Press/Rowing Machine and Hip Adductor/Abductor Machine.”


“I think every individual should travel and have one of these in their home. It’s the best bang for your buck when it comes to at-home fitness equipment and ensures an easy way to keep up with your strength training goals wherever you are. Everyone forgets how much of an asset their own body weight is. That’s where TRX shines.”

Pro4 System
Level up your fitness with our performance-driven strap design tested by athletes and trusted by professional trainers.

What’s in my wardrobe


“The chances of running into me and I don’t have something Vuori on are slim to none, especially one of their joggers! The fit and material are perfect, plus lightweight and comfortable. It’s hands down my favorite brand when it comes to athleisure.”

Vuori's Meta Jogger
Meta Jogger
The Meta Joggers are built for a life of movement.

NADS Boxers
Organic Cotton Boxer
Made using 100% certified organic cotton our active-line boxers are perfect for an on-the-go lifestyle.

Proteins and supplements


“If I’m on the road, I definitely have Anabar in my bag to make sure I have my protein intake for the day. Their flavor and protein count is on point! It’s a great airport, or plane snack, but also an alternative to an afternoon snack with much better protein benefits.”

Protein Bar
Anabar provides amazing taste without compromising on quality ingredients.

Cutler Nutrition

“If you’re looking for quality and clean protein that’s not in the form of a drink or bar, this is one of the best on the market. Their Essentials Creatine can be added to morning coffee, or a post-workout shake. If I remember to prepare myself a shake as a late morning snack, you can guarantee it has a hefty scoop of Cutler in it.”

Essentials Creatine
Cutler Nutrition
Essentials Creatine
Pure creatine monohydrate.


“When it comes to nootropics, this is the best one I’ve found that actually makes me feel like I should. I need a kick in the brain most mornings and I work long days, so I can’t crash. Thesis products offer a clean focus feeling all day long, without a crash or spike in energy.”
