15.4 Complete - Great Results Continue!!

With a week left of the Open here is an update on athletes we are watching.

Workout was an 8 Min AMRAP - Handstand Push-Ups and Power Cleans.  This workout was a killer - with the new standard, it forced athletes to use a near shoulder width distance for the HSPU's.  Every round there was an increase in the number of reps for the HSPU's - up by 3 each round and every 4th round the power cleans increased by 3.

Happy to report that all of the Infinit Fuelled athletes have stayed in the top 20 or have moved into the top 20.  Great news!

In the East:

Kyle Cant is our lone athlete competing for a regional spot in the east.  Kyle pushed out 116 reps of a really tough combo - finished a little lower than the competition around him, but still strong enough to be at 18th overall.

In the West:

Emily Abbott was 3rd in the region on 15.4 with 129 reps - huge effort.  Solidly remains in the number 1 position.

Erica Livett cracks the top 20, sitting at 19.  Her consistency is allowing for the climb - 96 reps was good enough to move from outside the top 20 to a qualifying spot for the Regionals with one WOD left.

Jolaine Undershute cranks out another top 10 effort in 15.4.  127 reps was good enough for 6th in the region.  Jolaine sits at number 2 in the region, moving up 2 spots from last week.

Brent Fikowski has had a great open so far.  Another great showing this week with 141 reps - got him a 2nd place in the region.

Nate Beverage had another strong week - nailing 125 reps for 7th.  This 7th place moved him up to 7th overall.  Great open so far.

Really cool to see all 6 athletes on the right side of 20.  Looking forward to the announcement Thursday, hope it suits your strengths and you all punch your ticket to Tacoma or Hartford.

Fallon's Epic Journey!!!

I have come across a lot of incredible athletes in my time - those who can hold 300 plus watts for 5 hours on a bike, swim 1500 meters in less than 15 minutes, runners that run 800 m in under 2 minutes and mountain bikers who cycle for 24 hrs straight.  Although I find these inspirational, sometimes other feats inspire me more.  Fallon's journey is one of them.   I used to work with Fallon, was lucky enough to see the start of her journey and now I get to witness the continued progress, as we work out of the same CrossFit box - Workhorse Lifestyle.  Knowing the story, I asked Fallon if she would be willing to share as I thought it would inspire others.  Here is Fallon's story so far:

My name is Fallon and about 4 years ago I decided I needed to get control of myself.  I had no idea how to do that.  It took a huge shake up of my “normal” life to show me that the only thing that I had/have control over in my life was/is me, I needed to take responsibility for that – this might have been the hardest realization that I have ever had to manage and as you will see maybe I didn’t.

I needed to make some massive changes.  My health and wellness was suffering drastically from my lack of love and respect for myself.  To be completely honest I don’t know what my weight was when I started this whole thing – but I do know that I was over 330lbs, easily, probably pushing 350lb.  I knew it was bad and didn’t need a number to verify that.  Walking for any distance was a struggle, but I had to start somewhere.  So that’s what I did.  I love spending time outdoors so I walked, slowly but surely, and after a month of this it got easier.   I felt better physically and mentally.  I kept walking for about three months.  I decided then that I was embarking on a journey to a better version of me.   If I was going to do this I needed a benchmark, I got on the scale – 320lbs. While I was at it I might as well look at cleaning up my eating habits.  Back then I didn’t eat much for most of the day – never had breakfast, rarely stopped for lunch – but when I got home from work I ate non-stop for 4 hours and then went to bed.

In January 2012 I joined a conventional gym and started eating three meals a day and within no time the weights was falling off of me.  I felt better than I had ever felt in my entire life.  At the gym I was now feeling good enough to take part in group exercise classes, I loved it and they loved me.  As I gained more confidence in my ability to take part in exercise I decided to take a leap and join a bootcamp style fitness group.  I did this at the end of 2012, and it was the best thing I had ever done for myself.  I quickly gained a network of people who were on similar journeys as myself as well as many friends who became my support network.  At this time I was soaring – my weight had dropped I was getting stronger and more confident.  I felt great.

In 2013 I decided I was going to put my fitness to the test.   I started with a 5k mud run.  Signing up for something like this was a huge success for me, showing up was an even bigger one, and well finishing was fantastic.  Continuing with bootcamp and then joining a spin class with a fabulous motivator and friend, Kirsten Haglund (PUSH Fitness) I went into the summer of 2013 at the peak of my life.  I was eating clean and feeling the best I have ever felt.  So that summer I decided to start training “dirty” literally with a close friend.  He has a beach volleyball court in his back yard – he threw some logs and tires in there and I joined him and the rest of the Byrne’s Digs family flipping tires in the sand.  That was it for me - that’s when I knew that I had something in me that was stronger than I had believed.   I became the real me that summer – it was amazing.  My focus was on me, inside me, and I was the best version of myself.

In November of 2013 I ran 10K in a local event.  It was awful – I am not a runner – but again, I signed up, showed up and finished.  What an accomplishment, seeing as just two years before I couldn’t even walk up the stairs in my house.  At the end of 2013 I had lost more than 100lbs.  I weighed in at 236lbs.  I had dropped 10 pant sizes and was finally able to start shopping outside of the plus size section.   I was strong physically but mentally I was still feeling a bit weak.   I hadn’t yet figured out how I got to where I was when I was 100lbs heavier.  I knew that I needed to understand that in order to be sure I didn’t get back there.

In early 2014 I was doing bootcamp, spin, and light-weight training with a solid group of ladies every weekday morning.  They were my unit.  We supported and pushed each other.   I know now that I was still successful in my journey because I was leaning on them.  By spring of that year I had dropped down to 215lbs.  My eating habits and food choices were spot on.  My training was intense but enjoyable and I was committed, to my group.  And then the unit fell apart, and so did I.  First I stopped attending the classes that had been part of my routine.  I tried desperately to find another routine that would take its place but it didn’t work.  So I started looking in other places, focusing outside of me, to find control.  I started training others both in Spin and in the sand.  I spent most of 2014 focusing on everything other than myself and in doing so I lost myself again.

I was struggling, I was stressed and I had lost control.  I remembered this feeling, all too well.  While all of this negativity was building and tearing up all that I had work to change some really timely things were happening.  Things were taken from me that would force me to change whether I wanted to or not, I was introduced to things that inspired me and deep down I remembered the fire I had light and I knew I was the one who had to keep it lit – no one else was going to do that for me – no matter what I believed.

So in October 2014 I re-light the fire.  I went outside of my comfort zone.    I made a commitment to myself.   I would start training again, in something that I had been aspiring to for some time.  I joined a local CrossFit box.  I became a WorkHorse – because this was something I wanted to do.

So here we are almost 6 months later and what I will say is this last year has been harder for me on this journey, than losing all that weight – that was the easy part.  Being lost, finding myself and then losing myself again has taught me some very valuable lessons.  The road to a better me is never ending, it’s not just about losing weight and being more physically fit, the mental component is more challenging.  I know that there are so many people who walk on my path with me, at times, but ultimately I am the one who has to take each step – no one can do that for me.

So 2015 is a year where I promise not to loose myself. I will be the best version of me this year, better than I have ever been and I can’t wait to show you that.

Thanks for sharing your story Fal, we look forward to periodic updates in the future as an Infinit Guest Blogger.  Your story is truly inspirational!

I wish you continued success.

Canada's Best to Meet In The Sand!

Saxton / Schalk and Infinit Nutrition Canada Partner

We are really excited to be working with Chaim Schalk and Ben Saxton, Canada's number one
ranked Beach Volleyball pair.  After spending about an hour with the pair today, I think we all realized that we can really help one another.

Chaim and Saxton currently reside in California where they do the bulk of their training.  Two a days are the norm, 2 hrs in the sand, then 90 minutes working on strength and functional mobility.  We were able to create one blend for the pair as they are basically the same weight, share the same sweat profile and we know they are training same.  The Saxton /Schalk Beach Blend will serve them well while in the sand and doing strength and conditioning work.  Of course we will support them with recovery products and our New Zealand whey isolate.  We are excited to be fuelling them to their full potential.

Chaim explains: “We are excited to be working with Infinit for our upcoming Olympic run.  In order to perform at our highest level we need to be fuelling ourselves appropriately.  We believe the blend that we have created will help us in every demanding situation that Beach Volleyball asks of us. We look forward to complete hydration, nutrition, and recovery as we prepare for the biggest season of our careers.”

Over the next month or so we will work together to understand their actual fluid rate loss, we will use this number to identify actual fluids to ingest per hour to ensure they remain fully hydrated during the various environments they train and compete in.

Beach Volleyball presents some unique challenges with respect to proper nutrition and hydration.  Games generally last about an hour, in varied weather conditions and they can play as many as 3 matches in a day.  We will work closely with one another to make certain we have optimized their fuel and recovery strategies.

Personally I will look forward to tracking their progress as they look to improve on their 2014 results, which had them ranked at 16th in the world.  We will provide periodic updates on how their season is going.

15.3 In The Books - Infinit Athletes Still Looking Good!

Quick update on the results so far after 3 weeks of the 2015 CrossFit Open competition.

15.3 Workout: 7 Muscle Ups, 50 Wall Balls and 100 Double-Unders, AMRAP - 14 min.

In the East:

Kyle Cant - CrossFit East
Kyle Cant is our lone athlete competing for a regional spot in the east.  He is currently sitting 17th in
Canada East - a jump up into that all important top 20, this year's cut-off for getting a chance to compete at the Regionals.  Great job on 15.3 Kyle - 517 reps for 15.3 was good enough for 5th in the region - gutty performance.

In the West:

Emily Abbott is proving she belongs!  Last year a bit of a surprise to take the Canada West Regional crown.  In the off-season she worked to add strength to that incredible engine - looks like it paid off.  She has finished top 5 in all 4 Open events so far, with 1st in region for 15.3 with 475 reps.

Erica Livett sits just outside of the top 20, admittedly she indicates Open competition is not her strength - which is made more challenging this year with only the top 20 going on.  She has held her own so far - hoping for another big strength event to balance things out a bit and allowing her to crack the top 20.

Jolaine Undershute is all about consistency so far - 4 results all in the top 20, with a number 1 showing for 15.2.  Nice to see Jolaine at number 4 in Open after a rough time at the Regional last year, going in was 3rd overall but couldn't compete due to catching a nasty bug just before the competition.  Would be great to see her competing at the Regionals and maybe even the games this year.

Brent Fikowski has been solid throughout the first 3 weeks of the Open.  3 top 5 results have him in 3rd in the region - his latest 2nd place showing in 15.3 was pretty impressive at 551 reps.  Brent is typically a little more methodical or calculated when approaching his work-outs, he went all out for this one, was looking to go unbroken for 3 rounds and then see what happens.  Looks like it turned out ok.

Nate Beverage has been consistent as well - and has moved into 8th overall with a 9th place effort at 508 reps.  Nate is new to the world of Infinit - probably recoverying on Rescue now that they have taken Infinit on at his affiliate CrossFit Hybrid Athletics.

Really exciting to see all of the athletes we fuel near the top.

Looking forward to tomorrow's 15.4 announcement and the results posted by these incredible athletes.

Introducing Antoine Valois-Fortier - 2012 Bronze Medalist

My name is Antoine Valois-Fortier and I’m one of the new members of the Infinit Nutrition Canada Family!
I’m a judo athlete who has been practicing this sport since I was 4 years old. I have been a part of the national team since 2007 and I have achieved my dream of becoming an Olympic medalist at the last Olympics in London when I won bronze. My latest season has been going very well as I became ranked second and taking silver at the last world championship. This year was an important one because it was the start of the qualifying period for the next Olympic Games. Within the next couple of months I will take part in many international competitions, including pan-am judo championship at the end of April, where I will try to get more points toward my Olympic qualification.
To prepare for those types of events, it needs countless hours of training. My training schedule includes about 25 to 30 hours of training every week. It’s also very important for me to recover from those training and this is where I’m lucky to have the Infinit product to help me get ready for the next session.
Thanks for the support!

Rich Pady - First Try at Life After Tri!!!

Some of you will know that Rich was my coach for Ironman racing, what you may not know is he was one of our first customers.  He started customizing product with us in the first week we opened our doors, way back in November 2006.

Rich certainly helped me bring more purpose to my training, ever grateful for his guidance and motivation.  Best quote of Rich's to me was an analogy - training is like putting pennies in a jar, if every day you put pennies in a jar, at the end you will end up with a jar full of pennies, regardless if you miss a day once in a while.  He shared this with me when I was worried about a missed workout.  Obviously put it in perspective.

Rich has transitioned from his Ironman training, you may of seen this back in October: 2014 Kona Race Report.  This was his last Ironman race, he is now looking for other physical challenges.  Here is one of his first, as told by Rich:

As part of my 2015 goals "trying NEW sporting events" I participated in the Hardwood Hills Fat Bike Championships yesterday.  The race was a 30km course combining both the XC ski trails and some of their summer MTB single track trails.  It was great fun trying something new with my friendsDerek MacNeil and Jason Vurma.

Being a rookie I didn't set my self up on the front line and found myself chatting with the guys at the back of the pack with just a minute to the start.  The gun went off and 50 racers took off like it was a mile sprint.  The first mile is slightly uphill with one solid climb before the single track starts.  I was at first happy to let everyone kill themselves, but then about 2 minutes into the race I realized I didn't want to be behind all of them going into the single track (ST).  I went to the outside and put in a solid minute effort that had me at my max as we reached the top of the first hill less then a mile into the race.  I did move myself from 20th(ish) to 3rd going into the ST so the effort was worth it.  On the first turn in the ST the guy in front of me had way too much speed and had a epic crash.  I was just able to avoid him and move into 2nd.  The ST was crazy hard as the snow was soft.  My bike was all over the place but I was able to keep it "rubber side down"(words from Derek MacNeil).  Back onto the XC trails the pace picked back up and it was a lot of fun.  The steep climbs on "Racer Out" and "Tower" took everything I had to not spin out on the softer snow.  I past the leader in this section and started to build to pull away.  After the first lap (15k) I was about 3 minutes ahead.  I kept the pace smooth as I started the 2nd loop with no idea of the fun waiting for me in about a mile.  As I reached the ST for the second time I rode right into the foot holes of 50 other people who had had to walk the first loop of the ST. I crash hard as my front wheel sunk into a foot hole.  I got up and stupidly tried to start riding again. My back wheel just sank.  It was clear then that the next 3kms of trail was going to be a HIKE(RUN)-A-BIKE.  I keep thinking "man I suck I'm sure the guys behind me are going to ride this and I'm going to be over taken".  It turns out everyone had the same challenges and some had it as well on the first lap (I was lucky).  After the very challenging, run/hike/still trying from time to time to get back on the bike only to crash, I made it out of the ST and back onto the XC trails.  I still felt great however and pushed on. On the back half of the race I focused only on the challenge of making it up and down all the hills, it was a great lesson on pedalling with even pressure on the pedals and no over breaking.  If you push down too hard on a climb your back wheel will spin out, your climb is over and you are pushing your bike to the top of the hill. There is no restarting a FAT BIKE after you stop on a hill.  For anyone who has skied at Hardwood you know that at the bottom of any great descend there is a turn.  The trail was chopped up from the first lap and picking a good line into the turns and not over breaking was key to staying up.  It was great fun and the time past so quickly.  I did end up holding off the rest of the racers and took my first ever bike race win in 1hr 44min.  I owe a special thanks to my good friend Ed Ayranto who hooked me up with his VERY fast machine last minute as I'm pretty sure that had a lot to do with the win. GOAL #1 Check!!

Having spent some time over the years with Rich, this result is not at all a surprise.  Crazy engine with a mind that matches it.  Nice Job Rich!

Eleanor Proves it is Never Too Late, 4th Half IM Coming Up!!!

Believe it was last March that Eleanor came to us, she was recommended by a friend.  We created Ellie's Tri Blend for her, after working through a series of questions.  Eleanor sent a wonderful email, that I read just before going out for an early morning run last June, great start to the morning:

Darcy - want to thank you again for your wonderful product.  Last weekend I was at training camp at Whistler, BC - rode for 5:20 (120 km) and there were some unbelievable difficult long hills - went through 3 - 20 oz bottles and I was fine.  Had lots of energy and no cramping.  It was especially hot that day as well.  Our coach said it was 32 C.  Afterwards I even ran for 30 mins and after the first shuffle, felt pretty good!   Never had such great results.

I have been using your repair formula - thank you for the trial package.  It tasted so good that I bought the large bag - I picked it all up at Nester's in Whistler.

Couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to connect with Eleanor again, she had some questions about her formulation.  While we were corresponding we came to know that Eleanor is 70 years young and still going really strong.  As we have worked the last couple of weeks to determine her fluid rate loss the past two weekends, I know that she has done a 4 hr bike and this last, a 5 1/2 hr ride followed by a 40 minute run.  I love it.

We asked Eleanor to share her story, here it is, pretty cool:

I started running 15 years ago and after 7 marathons and a lot of half-marathons, I decided to attempt a triathlon, which meant I first had to learn how to swim and to ride a road bike - both of which were frightening!  That was 5 years ago and I have completed three 70.3 distance triathlons.  

My very first attempt I did not make the cut-off time for the bike.  I always tried whatever nutrition was the flavour of the day in the industry and what others were using and I suffered from a lot of digestive distress.  One year ago, a friend that I met at the gym, told me about Infinit.  She also did triathlon events and had great success with it.  I was lucky enough to have a personal consultation with Darcy and he was able to custom blend a formula for me, which has done well.  I train approximately 10 - 14 hours per week and use the product daily.  I have not had any digestive distress and expect that it will see me through my next 70.3 at the end of this month. 

Ask yourself how many people that attempt their first Half Ironman (1.9 km swim, 90 km bike & 21.1 km run) and don't complete it because they failed to make the bike cutoff - then dust themselves off, persevere and finish 3.  I can tell you there are not many - Eleanor you are an inspiration.

Best of luck Eleanor in Oceanside, CA for your next 70.3 race, which happens to be on my awesome mom's birthday - she is 69 years young and exercises pretty much daily as well!

How Do You Create the Perfect Fuel For CrossFit Athletes?

In 2013 we felt we could really help CrossFit athletes perform better and of course wanted to be part
of this growing phenom.  Knowing that we have fuelled thousands of the top athletes in Canada - including multiple Olympic medalists, pro Hockey players and some of the top endurance athletes, we knew if we could take our custom approach and match it directly to the CrossFit athletes' needs, we would have something pretty big.   First step of creating this fuel, work directly with top athletes.   Find out what they like about their current nutrition, find out what they don't.  Discuss workout performance, are they able to power through the entire WOD or do they feel like they are fading near the end.  Are they continuing to see personal bests or have they plateaued.  How are they feeling the next day - tired and achy or ready to hit it again.

After much dialogue with the 4 athletes: Dan Bosco - Coach/Owner of Windsor CrossFit, Kyle Cant - 10th Overall Canada East 2014, Jolaine "Bloom" Undershute - 4th Overall CrossFit Games Masters - 2013, & Erica Livett - 3rd/4th Overall Canada West 2013/14 we started to understand what we needed to do,  to address some gaps in CrossFit nutrition, the first and most obvious was add carbs!   The Paleo diet works outside of the gym, but it doesn't support peak results inside the box.  To perform at your best during longer metcons and to recovery optimally you have to introduce fast acting carbs, not just protein.  Was really cool working with the 4 athletes and along the way got some valuable insights from Garth Cooke Owner/Coach at CrossFit North Okanagan.  Not only were we trying to optimize the nutritional side of things, we had to ensure that we were matching the athletes palates - needed to have a drink that would be consumed readily, had to taste great, mix well and would never get in the way of the workout.  4 months later after taking feedback and tweaking the blends, we arrived with the fuelling system.  A group of products that do not contain any artificial flavours, sweeteners, or anything else that doesn't provide nutritional value.  Not only did we take feedback and mix ingredients in the most optimal proportions - we started with the highest quality raw materials.  This is our model, this is what allows us to be partnered with the Canadian Sport Institute - Pacific and for us to have earned the right to fuel the best in Canada.  The most notable ingredient we use - New Zealand Whey isolate - it has the best nutritional profile of any protein on the market.   Highest proportion of key BCAA's that drive the growth and repair of muscle.   Additionally it is the cleanest tasting and easy protein to mix, you don't need any fancy protein shaker to avoid nasty clumps.

Have we created the perfect fuelling system for CrossFit?  Not sure, but we are pretty darn close.  The great thing is we continue to receive feedback and if you want to see a change, our custom approach accommodates that.  Dave Kitchen from CrossFit North Vancouver as an example, loved Rescue but wanted to see a second version for his larger athletes - with a few more carbs present - hence now why we offer Rescue+.  Garth Cooke pushed us to create a no carb blend of high BCAA/Beta Alanine to support max strength days - that now exists, great blend that is being used in conjunction with the other products.  At present we are sourcing raw materials for a new weight gainer at the request of Bobby Tran from Workhorse Lifestyle Crossfit.

Really excited to watch this grow - of course we love the increase in business in this new area, but we are really excited to watch the athletes we fuel reach their true potential.

Brent Fikowski Breaks Down First Two Weeks of CrossFit Open

Brent at 2015 OCT - 1st Overall $20K
Great when we get to hear first hand from the TeamInfinit athletes.  Brent has had a solid start to 2015.  Winning a huge event down in Orange County and starting this year's CrossFit Open in strong fashion. 

Two weeks down, three to go.

The 2015 CrossFit Open has been a lot of fun so far.  It was exciting to see a max weight lift in the Open this year, and I think the event they chose to repeat was smart.

The first week was a bit bittersweet for me.  I was very happy with my score in 15.1.  This was a nine minute max effort of toes to bar and lightweight deadlifts/snatches.  Halfway through it became a test of your grip strength as well as your conditioning.  I gave a very honest effort, I don't think I could have done anything differently to get a better score.  15.1a was a bit disappointing.  I had a goal of hitting a 322lb clean and jerk.  With only 6 minutes to establish a max lift I took two lifts to warm up then hit 307lb pretty easily.  I had about 80 seconds to rest then I attempted 322lb.  I failed to get out of the clean.  In hindsight I would have taken 3 lifts and worn a belt.  I believe I could have been successful at 322lb with those two changes.  No matter how long you compete you always learn something and that is what keeps me coming back.  My two scores were still good enough to place me 7th in Canada West.  Unfortunately though I lost to Joe Scali and Mitch Barnard.  We have some friendly bets each week between us three, so my punishment was a pie to the face.

2015 15.2 Open - 341 Reps
The second week of the Open saw a repeat from last year.  Lots of chest to bar pull-ups and 95lb overhead squats.  Last year I placed 26th in the world in this event.  I paced it very well, breaking all the reps up early and came out with a score I hardly believed I accomplished.  So far this year it is crazy to see the improvement within the leaderboard.  So many more athletes around the world are getting scores over 280.  This year I paced it exactly the same as last year.  Near the end I definitely could feel that I had more energy so I hit 8 more reps.  I don't think I could have done anything differently, so I am happy with the result.  Luckily this week I beat Scali so he will be facing a humiliating punishment. 
2014 Canada West Regionals - on his way to 260 Max

I am looking forward to the next three weeks.  I am on track to reach my two goals for the Open. The first and most important is qualifying to Regionals in the top heat.  The second goal is to win one Open workout worldwide.  This will require a bit of luck, but each year there is usually one event that is right up my alley.

It was nice having two events with periodic breaks in them that allowed me to sip on some Infinit!  Always refreshing!  Thanks guys for the support, lets finish off these next three weeks and get to Regionals.

Best Regards,

Brent Fikowski

Best of luck the rest of the way Brent!
