Looking back, I see the flying trapeze taught me lessons that have helped to propel me forward.

If your clients are putting in the physical work but continually experiencing poor recovery or having trouble bringing power to their workouts, they may be missing out on key nutrients.

In my decades as a newspaper reporter, I asked all kinds of people all kinds of questions. Then I worked in corporate communications, which led to many more interviews in various situations.

Recently I received a package in the mail and I immediately got excited because I knew what was inside. It was the official ribbon copy of a new patent we were just granted on our TireFlip 180® product! It was my 20th patent including the US and Worldwide and it represented a significant milestone for me.

Innovation is the heart our company and we are proud of the intellectual property we’ve been able to obtain.
