Surf Tesla



For those who have dreamed of owning a Tesla – a surfboard that is – here it is! Available today is the new Limited Edition Tesla Surfboard, designed in collaboration with Lost Surfboards and famed surfboard shaper Matt “Mayhem” Biolos.

Constructed from a lightweight “Black Dart” carbon fiber, the Tesla Surfboard features a mix of the same high-quality matte and gloss finishes used on Tesla cars. Along with tonal logos in a subtle contrast gloss, Tesla red coats the underside of the board. Measuring 6’8”, the board is designed to fit the Tesla Model S, X, and 3, accommodating it comfortably on the inside or outside of the vehicle.

Each surfboard will be custom made to order, and only 200 are being produced. Priced affordably at $1500, unfortunately you’ll need to keep dreaming about owning that Tesla. Not surprisingly, the edition is already sold out.


The Custom Smoothie


How many days a week do you do cardio? How many are strength training? Do you eat meat or are you vegan? Are your goals weight loss or building muscle? How many servings of fresh fruit and vegetables do you eat daily? These are just of the few questions asked as you go through the iFit Nourish questionnaire to determine the perfect shake for you.

There are a plethora of protein powders on the market, and one size does not fit all. What works for a bodybuilder looking to bulk up, does not for a woman looking to slim down. With a blend of protein, carbs, and fat, each iFit shake packet is custom blended for your body type, fitness goals, and nutritional needs. Delivered monthly in a subscription service, most importantly the shakes are delicious too!

I make a protein shake for breakfast every morning after I work out, and look for a nutritionally dense protein powder sourced from high-quality ingredients that tastes great, blends icy smooth, and keeps me satisfied all morning long. The protein options in an iFit shake are a dairy-based whey, or a vegetable blend of brown rice, hemp and pea. As compared with a single-source protein, these help provide higher levels of amino acids for better muscle recovery and growth.

So for this cardio junkie editor, it’s Formula 33747 with 230 calories and 21g of whey protein (I find it blends better than vegetable), 35g of carbs, 9g of fiber, and 2.5g of fat. It’s loaded with calcium, folate, potassium, and other vitamins and minerals targeted to a woman my age. A shake can reveal a lot about a person. What does yours say about you?

It’s Finals Weekend: Wimbledon vs. The World Cup




What a sport lover’s weekend is in store! Saturday will feature Serena Williams battling it out against Angelique Kerber in the Women’s Final at Wimbledon. These two went head to head in the 2016 final, with Williams grabbing the win in a tight two set match. That was the last time Williams played at Wimbledon since becoming a mom and this only her fourth tournament back — amazing, but not surprising given her record as a Grand Slam finalist (30) and Grand Slam champion (23)! 

The men take to the court Sunday morning for the Men’s Final at Wimbledon, where Kevin Anderson will be competing against… late breaking news: Novac Djokovic! In one of the tightest, longest, and most epic semi-final matches, after 6:36 hours on the court, Anderson finally edged out John Isner winning (7-6, 6-7, 6-7, 6-4, 26-24)! There are no tie-breakers in the fifth set at Wimbledon, and it took Anderson 26 games to win his spot in the final.  Read More




If you’ve been looking for a crash course in any outdoor sport you’ve ever wanted to try, the Pursuit Series is the weekend getaway for you! Billed as the “Outdoor Adventure Camp for Grown-Ups”, the Pursuit Series takes place in different locations throughout the country. I recently visited the Pursuit at Hunter Mountain in upstate New York, where rock climbing, fly tying, and camping were just a few of the top picks on my action-packed schedule. 

The Pursuit Series offers a fully immersive experience in nature’s playground that you can customize from the most strenuous to the most relaxing activities: from outdoor sports like mountain biking, trail running, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, and fly fishing; to outdoor skills like how to pack a backpack, cook in the backcountry, and use a map and compass; to wellness experiences like essentials oils for the outdoors, restorative hammock yoga, and very important to me, how to brew the “Ultimate Kickass Cup of Coffee”Read More
