“The Vega Sport Performance System is the first, complete, all-natural, plant-based sport performance system on the planet.
The Vega Sport Performance System was specifically developed in three comprehensive phases to help you perform at your highest level without compromise – before, during and after training, snowshoeing, trail running, triathlon or any other endurance sport.
“Winter is nature’s way of saying Up Yours.”
Merino wool was integrated into garments for humans instead of attempting to outsmart nature by concocting a synthetic version.
Icebreaker is a lightweight system of all-season garments combining the inspiration of nature with the technology of engineered layers to perform freely in any outdoor pursuit – especially in extreme conditions.
Icebreaker merino wool is grown in the Southern Alps, a rugged mountain range that stretches like a spine down New Zealand’s South Island.
“Don’t dig your grave with your own knife and fork.”
It is time to see the forest instead of the trees.
The food you put in your mouth will impact more than your snowshoeing. Health care costs are escalating in synch with disease incidence rates – which is synonymous with disaster. http://www.snowshoemag.com/2011/09/18/part-one-the-price-of-convenience/
Our society is overfed yet undernourished and this includes endurance athletes. Billions of dollars per year are wasted treating symptoms and designing new therapies, medications and procedures to continue to treat symptoms.
“To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
The most accurate barometer of a food’s nutritional value is its micronutrient density.
Our fixation with macronutrients – carbohydrate, fat and protein – and calories is excessive.
Consumption of a plant-based, whole foods diet eliminates the need to track grams, calories, portions or macronutrient percentages.
