It’s a style of fitness that is often portrayed in the media as a workout for soccer moms and celebrities. Over recent years however, many athletes have discovered the power and benefits that performing Pilates can provide. Let me explain how Pilates can enhance your training and overall athletic performance. Read more »
Professional hammer throw athlete and all-round nice guy, Jerome Bortoluzzi visited Herbalife recently and was happy to discuss some of his secrets to effective workout strategies. We chatted about the importance of technique, training, and recovery and how athletes can push a workout routine even further.
Herbalife: Hi Jerome, Thanks for taking a break from your training in Texas and coming over to Los Angeles. Just in case anyone isn’t familiar with your sport, can you sum up hammer throw for us?
Jerome Bortoluzzi: The hammer is a 16-pound iron ball, on a 3-foot wire, and the goal is to spin and throw as far as possible. It originated from an old Irish game and do you know why it weighs 16 pounds exactly? Read more »

As Director of Sports and Fitness at Herbalife, I’m often asked about how athletes can improve their performance. It comes down to sports nutrition – you need to feed your body the right nutrients at the right times to help it perform.
You get stronger while eating and sleeping – not while working out. Read more »
While individuals often have personal preferences, here is quick guide to proper fueling during an endurance event like the Leadville trail 100 mountain bike race.
Nearly everyone that starts Leadville has logged the training hours to complete the race. Those who don’t finish typically suffer from dehydration and improper nutrition during the 10 hour + race. Bloating, nausea, upset stomachs, cramping, and bonking are no excuses. Here are 5 tips to maximize your chances of not only finishing, but racing to your potential. Read more »
If you train year-round for a single endurance sport, or workout week after week without a particular purpose other than to stay fit, keep reading…this article is for you.
If you are an endurance athlete, this is a special time of year – the off-season. But for a hard-nosed, type A, endurance athlete, this season” is often the most difficult to come to terms with. Stepping away from your routine can be hard to do. We all experience the fears of losing fitness, lean muscle turning soft, and the idea of simply having more time on our hands. But this is what the off-season is about. It’s time to reduce your training volume and intensity; focus on flexibility and correct any muscle imbalance and nagging injuries; and mix in some cross training, which will help enhance your overall awareness of your body, refresh you mentally, and keep you fit without experiencing severe burnout.

I get asked all the time (often by endurance athletes) “what is the best way to lose weight” and “how fast can I lose weight?”
For many athletes, being lean means being fast. For soccer players – that means out-sprinting an opponent for a free ball; for a cyclist – it means less weight to carry up a hill, and power-to-weight is the golden ratio for cycling. Herbalife is the nutrition sponsor at the Lifetime Fitness Leadville series again this year, and as Director of Sports and Fitness at Herbalife, I had better be as fit and fast as I can be by the time the race rolls around in August. (If you haven’t heard of the Leadville 100 Trail yet then take a second to find out about our Herbalife24 Base Camp.) Read more »

The excitement about High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), in the sports and fitness world is as high today as it’s ever been. That’s because it is an effective training method for burning extra calories, zapping fat and improving your cardiovascular health. The added thrill factor is that it takes less time than a traditional cardio workout with a typical HIIT session only requiring 20-30 minutes of your time.
I must be honest and say that it is called high intensity for good reason, it is hard work and I only recommend that only avid exercisers give it a try. You need to be used to working out at a higher threshold requiring maximum effort. Fast results requires hard work but you definitely get a good pay off. Read more »
