Aquasana Water Filters

Those of you who've been through my holistic lifestyle coaching program know the importance of drinking the proper amount of quality water. More information can be found on my blog, but here is where you'll find the actual water—it's the only thing I drink.

Hammer Nutrition

Endurance athletes are faced with a barrage of choices to fuel themselves during competition. Most of them wouldn't keep your dog alive, so they don't meet my criteria for race nutrition. Hammer products are different. Made with real ingredients that you can actually pronounce, Hammer Nutrition has been my choice for the past several years—from my Saturday morning training ride to the lava fields in Hawaii. I won't race with anything else.

Great Lakes Gelatin

One of the two supplements I recommend to everybody. With an amino acid profile that helps fight inflammation, this is a product I use daily. It's incredibly versatile and a simple way to balance the macronutrient profile of a meal to help stabilize blood sugars and maintain health. Also available unflavored.

Mountain Rose Herbs

Organic herbs and personal care products I endorse because they do not foster the destruction of our health or the downfall of our environment through the use of conventional farming methods or chemical manufacturing.

Perform Better

Whether you need a foam roller for myofascial release or a good physio ball for your home or office, this is the place to buy it.

Reusable Bags

One of the best sites for anybody who is environmentally conscious (and anyone conscious should be), and this one is actually making an impact. They focus on the problems of plastic bottles and plastic bags in our world, offering safe, convenient alternatives like stainless steel water bottles and grocery/produce bags made from organic, reusable cotton. Look around the site for facts (like the plastic bag counter below) that should spur you to take action as you realize that even one quality, reusable shopping bag has the potential to eliminate hundreds or even thousands of bags over its lifetime. The savings in oil and other non-renewable energy sources as well as the amount of landfill space saved though your patronage should make this site one of your favorites.

U.S. Wellness Meats

Going against the grain(s), U.S. Wellness Meats practices sustainability with a service that brings wild seafood, grass fed beef, and other free-range meats and poultry right to your door—all at a cost that's actually affordable.

Vitamin D3/K2

Here's the other supplement. Vitamin D3 because you're likely deficient—the current RDA is finally being reevaluated with most experts saying these recommendations are too low. And Vitamin K2 puts calcium where it belongs (in the bones and teeth) and keeps it away from the places it doesn’t belong (i.e. arteries, which we don't want to calcify).


C.H.E.K Institute

Education is a journey, and this is where mine has led me. And that was just the first step...

Dr. Stephen LaScala

Outside of my own training, this is the man responsible for my orthopedic integrity. I owe him many a finish line photo as he's an integral part of my athletic success. His healing hands have worked on many of my friends and family, all of whom swear by his expertise.

Urban Body Fitness

The best gym in Georgia (and I don't just say that because I used to train the owner). You'll love this facility and its sister venue, Urban Body Studios, which is right next door. Clean, with courteous service and some functional equipment not typically found in the gym, this facility gets the Andrew Stamp of Approval (or I wouldn’t link to it here).


Dangerous Grains: Why Gluten Cereal Grains May Be Hazardous To Your Health

Dangerous Grains turns the U.S. Food Guide Pyramid upside down by exposing the myriad health risks posed by gluten grains (wheat, rye, barley, spelt, kamut, and triticale). The authors, leading experts in the field of food allergies, and celiac disease, present compelling evidence that our grain-centered diet is to blame for a host of chronic illnesses.

The Hidden Messages in Water

Using high-speed photography, Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. The implications of this research create a new awareness of how we can positively impact the earth and our personal health.

Hypothyroidism: The Unsuspected Illness

Hypothyroidism -- low thyroid function -- is one of the gland disturbances that many people suffer from without even realizing it. It can be the cause of low energy or constant fatigue that is one of the most common complaints brought to doctors. It may be responsible for chronic headaches, repeated infections, unyielding skin problems, or circulatory difficulties. Even more frightening, it can be a major factor in heart disease, lung cancer, and emphysema. And it is responsible for many emotional and mental disturbances. Hypothyroidism: The Unsuspected Illness explains low thyroid function in easy, understandable language.

The Metabolic Typing Diet

For hereditary reasons, your metabolism is unique. Cutting-edge research shows that no single diet works well for everyone–the very same foods that keep your best friend slim may keep you overweight and feeling unhealthy and fatigued.
