Every week, our friends at St. Vincent Sports Performance (@DefiningSports) will provide three new tips that could help you achieve your athletic potential!

Drink before you’re thirsty. Thirst is your body’s warning signal that it needs water ASAP. Keep it hydrated throughout the day to avoid that thirsty feeling.

Slow down! When you eat too quickly, you generally don’t feel as full and eat more than the body truly needs.

For longer term recovery from injuries, look to food like legumes (beans, lentils and tofu) and fish (sardines, halibut, salmon, tuna and oysters).


Come back every Monday to get your weekly tips!
