Want a chance to contribute to TheAthElite?

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...

Have I told you how much I LOVE working with athletes??? Well I have now. I LOVE working with athletes who are dedicated to their sport/sports and living life to the fullest. Not sure you are an athlete yet? You are reading this information RIGHT NOW and following this hard-core, bad-ass training community. I don’t have to explain what a burpee is to you and I wouldn’t be surprised if you shut your office door and bust out burpees on a regular basis. Am I right? There… if you had any question, you ARE an athlete. Time to act like one. Back to these burpees… I wanted to give you a training routine that makes burpees a little more fun and a little less monotonous.  Are you ready to try it? Here ya go! If you have any other training techniques you would love to have spiced up, please let us know by emailing us your request at info@theathelite.com.

Couples Fitness Spartan Training

My boyfriend, Stephen (Steve to guys;-), and I love doing Spartan Races together which means we also love training for them together! Want to know HOW TO TRAIN for a Spartan Race? Check out our unconventional training we come up with in the gym. Getting Over the Walls We give our triceps extra work since they are what propel us over all those walls! Below, you will see how we performed a super set of tipcep pressdowns with the straight bar and then moved into pressdowns using the rope. Our sets/reps looked like this: Tricep Pressdown with Straight Bar: 3 x 10 narrow, 10 wide, 10 narrow Tricep Pressdown with Rope: 3 x 20 (light weight to failure) Rest: 45 seconds   Lower Body Strength This sport really challenges your lower body and back so we tend to do a lot of work with barbells and kettle bells. Luckily both of us have very strong lower bodies! Ladies who have strong lower bodies, this is a huge advantage for you.   Pulling and Pushing As you saw in the video above, we do a lot of work with pulling and pushing. Many of the obstacles require this pushing/pulling motion so we have found creative ways to train! Post Workout Nutrition This could possibly your most important meal of the entire day! What is in a great post workout meal? Simple carbs within the first 30 minutes and protein within the first hour. Our post workout go-to looks like this: 2 scoops IsaLean Shake 1/4 c. frozen blue berries 1/2 banana 2 large frozen strawberries water Mix and enjoy! Share...
