I’m Jackie, and I am a rock climber from Boulder, Colorado.
As a junior I competed in the Youth World Championships in Imst, Austria, but now I prefer to travel and climb outside. I currently set routes for competitions and day-to-day at The Spot Gym. Outdoors I have climbed hard problems and put up new climbs in many areas. For winter climbing I usually travel to Europe or camps in the desert (California, Southern Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and West Texas), and in the summer I enjoy high alpine bouldering at areas including Independence Pass, Mount Evans, and Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.
The dry deserts in the winter and big hikes at high altitude in the summer are very physically demanding, and I have found Vitalyte to be a crucial part of keeping happy, healthy, and hydrated for long days of climbing and during recovery and rest phases. I also love Vitalyte for keeping me going during long days of travel and the demanding work of setting for competitions. In addition to Vitalyte, I am a representative for La Sportiva and for Flashed Climbing.

Eating and drinking is a frame of mind for me; fuel the body with nutritious food and healthy drinks that energize you for your next great adventure! As the owner of a racing company, nothing is more important to me than staying healthy so I can enjoy being active outdoors with friends and family. I love running, biking, snow boarding, scuba diving, surfing, and hiking.
I am the owner of a small foot racing company (One Foot Free Racing) in Huntington Beach, California. We host small-scale runs each month for the every day runner. There are no cheerleaders, no bands, just beautiful scenery and your own thoughts.

My name is Semirah Dolan, as a social media and fitness fanatic, I pride myself with the ability to find fitness motivation by sharing my experiences with others. I am a New England city girl with a southern heart. I found my love for running through seven years of playing soccer so, soccer is essentially my first love. Once I started running and joining fitness groups, I built relationships and joined the growing Boston fitness tribe at yoga, crossfit, and spinning classes. To find a change in scenery, I teach sailing over the summer.
As an athlete and runner, keeping my body healthy is crucial for my health. Working hard to be healthy also motivates me to get up and stay active. I love that I am getting positive results from Vitalyte and you can tell through my performance.

I recently switched up my Monday workout routine to include a bit of swag and I’m loving every minute of it. Now -I don’t dread working out – I’m pretty lucky in that regard – but there are some days where I’m just not feeling it. There’s nothing worse than suffering through a workout… except maybe not doing one at all and that is why, ladies and gents, I’m excited to say I’ve found my solution.
I know this isn’t for everyone and trust me, I had to swallow my pride a bit especially considering my group workout class is front and center at the gym where pretty much all my friends work out… but it’s a blast. My point with this post is twofold. You have to let go of your pride. Just breathe it in and exhale it out, all the way out. Second of all, you have to find what you like. That might be running or spinning or walking but it might also be something you don’t know how to do already. It might be pole dancing or a certain kind of yoga or pilates or jazzercise or, in my case, hip hop.
Get your groove on kids – for we work out in order to leave healthy lives. No one said we weren’t allowed to have fun doing it.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks gearing back up to half marathon distance. Lots of running, crosstraining with bootcamp, yoga…oh and of course the entire family of Vitalyte products. Electrolyte replacements (all flavors) have been essential during bootcamp and hot yoga. The tri-phase pre-workout endurance fuel, chia surges, and the complete recovery post workout fuel have been staples of longer runs (10 plus miles); especially with speed work. I continue to rely on all of these products as integral pieces of my training.
