Who We Are
We've long believed in the power of healthy eating, but noticed a discrepancy when it came to the health of a particular group: long distance runners.
How is it possible that this seemingly healthy, fit and active group of people could train for the most important athletic events in their lives by gorging on heavy carbs, processed food, and little to no vegetables? Was there something we were missing?
With the help of Sarah Lefkowitz, our Registered and Sports Certified Dietitian, and a group of elite marathon trainers, we decided to launch Team NutriBullet, a team dedicated to optimizing their lives and health through proper, well-rounded nutrition and physical training.
By combining running, strength training, yoga, a daily NutriBlast, and health education, we're hoping to help these athletes - everyone from ultra-marathoners to couch potatoes - reach their fitness goals.
Our Los Angeles Marathon training group just completed the LA Marathon and had a Blast doing it! Many completed their first marathon ever, while others completed it as Team NutriBullet veterans. All members shared the same sentiment about the power of community and ability to transform beyond their wildest dreams - congrats on a tough, life-changing 26.2!
