Madi Serpico Zensah Running Sports Bra

The Zensah Sports Bra is undoubtedly one of the best sports bra on the market. From its seamless design to its amazing color selection, the Zensah Sports Bra is perfect for any woman who wants to take her performance to the next level. One woman who exemplifies this is Pro Triathlete Madi Serpico. Madi Serpico began running triathlons at the age of 12 and is currently training to compete in the triathlon in the 2016 Olympics. Madi loves competing in her Zensah Sports Bra and below she tells us why:

I absolutely love my Zensah Compression gear but I really love my Zensah Sports Bra the most. I am one of those athletes lucky enough to work part time in a Triathlon store and I get to try on pretty much any brand I like. Over the years I have tried many bras and nothing compares to my Zensah Sports Bra.

I wear it because it doesn’t chafe, it’s seamless and let’s face it, it is also one of the most flattering fits for any bra. I never feel sweaty in it even when I’m doing a longer training session, which lasts a few hours. It’s a very breathable material. To top it off they have the most amazing colors. I am definitely an athlete who loves to stand out in training and racing. So Zensah is perfect for me!!

I lent my mom a Zensah Sports Bra to do Ironman Canada this past week and she did the whole race in it. She says it’s her favorite sports bra she’s ever worn. She loves it!!

Thanks again Zensah for all of the great products and letting me come along for the journey.

Training hard and eating healthy helped her win this Gold Medal!

Training hard and eating healthy helped her win this Gold Medal!

Jaws dropped when Michael Phelps, decorated Olympic athlete, recently revealed that his training diet consisted of consuming 12,000 plus calories a day. On average, most people would eat that many calories worth in about three to four days! We may not all be Olympic athletes, but in order to be a successful one, it’s a must to maintain good health and shape. If you want to swim (or run, dunk, play, etc.) your way to a gold medal you don’t have to follow Phelp’s training diet (phew!). Below is a guide on nutrition information for athletes. Happy eating!

Dealing with Sports Injuries

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Zensah Compression

One of the worst things to happen to an athlete is an injury. Let’s face it. No one likes to get hurt.

Injuries cause setbacks in sports careers and in some cases, may end an athletic career. Getting hurt will warrant unwanted feelings such as anger, denial, or sadness. What is important is for the athlete to overcome this setback. Most of the time, sports medicine is focused on physical rehab. However, coping with a sports injury requires the athlete to focus on both his/her mental and physical states. Recovery is a long and hard road to endure, but if approached correctly, the athlete will come out as a stronger, more confident, and resilient person.

I want to ride my bicycle

I want to ride my bicycle

One of the most diverse sports out there is cycling or bicycling. The word itself, “cycling” conjures up different images for many people.

All three of these ideas are correct – which makes cycling one of the best and easiest sports to partake in. Still unsure if you want to become a cyclist? Read below for more information.
