NBC Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge PREVIEW and Airing Date!

CLICK TO WATCH! We have an airing date! June 13th 10/9 Central will be the airing date for NBC’s Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge! If you live here in Charleston, or are going to be visiting, we invite you to watch it with us! Details on the location coming soon. We couldn’t have asked for a team with more heart. Watch for us, Team Charleston Warriors. Our awesome ELITE athlete, Orla Walsh, proved to be not only an amazing athlete, but an amazing leader of our Charleston Warriors team. At ages 37 (me), 38 (Stephen), 39 (Elea), and 44 (Adam), we took advantage of our years of experience on that course. We can’t wait to see how the final editing turns out! I wish you all could have been there in person. The competition was fierce and close, and the tears streaming down the faces of the people in the audience are real. I’m tearing up right now as I type this and think back to all the heart that was poured into those days. NBC did a wonderful job in casting people who live real lives, face real struggles, and kick butt when they can fit it into their really busy schedules. These modern day warriors are going to inspire you and make you feel emotions you probably haven’t felt in years.

After several offers from some truly kickass athletes, we have set up a guest blog post submission link. We see you out there… sharing valuable information via social media. While social media is excellent for sharing, the shelf-life of a post on social media can be short as it gets buried in the news feeds. Uploading these same nuggets of information onto a website will extend the life of your post while also giving it a home base so you can continue to refer people to your link.   Why Submit? If you didn’t get this from our social media quotes, here at TheAthElite we value our community of warriors. Just like you, we despise the fast food version of life. You are not alone even though it feels that way at times. We know… the learned helplessness is pervasive. TheAthElite is a resource for the brave, resourceful, and resilient. You are passionate about being an athlete. Whether you are a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, you never go half way; and during the process you have no doubt picked up some favorite techniques, learned some lessons, and maybe even started coaching your favorite sport in some way. What better way to position yourself as the expert than writing about your expertise? If you already run a blog or website, you understand the power of creating a body of work where people can get to know more about you and any services you may offer. If your guest blog post is selected, you have the opportunity to be featured on the TAE Website, in the TAE email lineup, and on TAE social media channels: Instagram...

The Next Evolution in Athletic Conditioning!

Coach Stephanie Keenan Look out Athletes! The next evolution in Athletic Conditioning is finally here! “High Intensity Sport Specific Training” is upon us! Allow me introduce you to the newest and freshest face in hardcore athletic training, Coach Stephanie Keenan; and she’s brought a big shiny can of whoop @#S with her! While she isn’t new to training champions by any means, she has finally decided to immerse herself into the arena of elite athletic training. Stephanie started her path to competitive athletics early in her high school years where she competed in cross country, track and field, swimming and water polo. Stephanie continued to develop her competitive edge throughout her college years where she competed in numerous running races, triathlons, and duathlons, played water polo and worked as a beach lifeguard. She didn’t let the rigorous 80+ hour per week military academic schooling deter her from her love of intense physical training. Three years after enlisting in the U.S. Navy’s Nuclear Power program, Stephanie qualified for the 2003 Duathlon World Championships. This qualifying race took place on Mount Rainier near Seattle, Washington where she was stationed on the aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln.     In 2007, she shifted her athletic focus from endurance-based sports to the sport of fitness and physique competitions. She went on to compete at an international level with the WBFF where she placed Top 5 in many of her competitions. Stephanie took her physique competitions to the next level when she began coaching competitive fitness athletes in 2011. Fitness and figure competitions are often referred to as “the sport of dieting” since nutrition plays the most...
