Greetings from Paleo f(x)

It’s ‘Day 2’ of Paleo f(x), the nation’s leading holistic wellness event, and we’re having a blast. Thoughtful panels and brilliant presenters line the day top to bottom. Of course, we had to take a break from the action, however, to train. Thanks to our friends at Travis County Strength for the session! drew

We’re in Austin to support BIRTHFIT, who’s a proud member of Team ORIGINAL. In addition, founder Dr. Lindsey Mathews DC is up for, not one, but two of Paleo Magazine’s ‘Best of 2016’ awards; Fire Starter of the Year and Best New Fitness Business.

We’re headed back in for another day meeting other minds and trying to grow ours. Happy training!

keg toss

ON: 50/50 Business and Performance

In true “Logan fashion” I decided to seemingly over-extend myself this past weekend. ORIGINAL Nutritionals co-sponsored the 2016 Gladiator Gauntlet, a NAS sectioned strongman event set to qualify athletes for nationals. Not only would we sponsor, but I enrolled as a middleweight competitor.

Since our inception in 2011, ORIGINAL Nutritionals has been some oscillating percentage business and some percentage physical prowess, for better or worse. On competition day, the pie would be split 50/50.

With the help of big Will Peddie, the ORIGINAL Nutritionals booth was a haven for education on our basic, pure, and essential products and a retail space for Omega 3 for athletes and clean proteins. We even had goat whey fruit smoothies for athletes and spectators alike. Naturally, the booth doubled as a refuged for DEUCE Gym’s competitors and support crew.

We wouldn’t have it any other way.

The 50/50 balance worked out this time. I was able to walk away with the top spot on the podium and we were able to spread the good word of ORIGINAL Nutritionals. I want to thank all those that put on the event from Nathan Small, Zak Kirk, and NAS state rep, Kristin Rhodes for putting on a professional event.

Pinky up!

CA Strongest Woman Event a Success

This past weekend strongman competitors Clay Edgin and Kalle Beck played host to nearly sixty women at Santa Cruz Strength. The event was called California’s Strongest Woman, which took a familiar strongman style competition with an approachable scale and only allowed women in the door.

CSW

The event featured five events across three divisions (novice, open, and masters) in three different weight classes (lightweight, middleweight, heavyweight). These inspiring women took to a pressing medley and put various implements from kegs to barbells and axles and circus dumbbells overhead for speed. Another event had the ladies pulling a dump truck with a large rope hand over hand for time.

Nonetheless, the event was a inspiration. ORIGINAL Nutritionals was a proud sponsor and we’d like to congratulate all the competitors.
