Happy Birthday Trader Joe’s!

  Believe it or not, but our favorite neighborhood grocery just turned 50 years old?! From its first shop in Pasadena, where hometown butchers sliced cheese and meats, and freshly squeezed orange juice was served from local orange groves, Trader Joe’s has dedicated itself to bringing the community quality food at reasonable prices.

How to Combat Inflammation?

  Pretty much every where you look these days the word “inflammation” pops up, properly frightening us into healthier lifestyle habits and more wholesome nutrition choices.  Many of us are confused as to what exactly defines inflammation? and why is it so detrimental? There are two types of inflammation: painful inflammation and silent inflammation. Painful…

Pre-Saddle Room Snacks

It’s no secret, proper nutrition is vital for a strong performance in the Saddle Room; the energy required for sprints, hills, motorcycles, and power jumps can’t be sustained on Chainsmokers alone.

How do you define INTEGRITY?

 As one our founding principles, Grit Cycle strives to have INTEGRITY permeate every decision we make.  When Matt and Marisa came together with their vision for Grit Cycle, “INTEGRITY” punctuated almost every conversation for their mission.

Grit’s Summer Reads…..

Who doesn’t love a great “beach read”? Summertime is the perfect time to get lost in that book you’ve had up on the shelf all year. What better way to spend an hour or two on the sand, than under an umbrella escaping into a creepy thriller, an epic love story,  or time traveling back into…
