In a typical day of a professional athlete, you can only imagine how chaotic your scheduling could be. Let alone one of the best players in the world, Lebron James, guilty of a two-wheel heart-pumping work commute. While James was on his Miami Heat tenure (2010-14), he would frequently use his bicycle to commute for home games.
“I want to maximize everything I can and not waste an opportunity each and every day to compete and get better as a player,” James said in The Huffington Post. “I want to be the best. You’ve got to push the button sometimes.”
Incidences and examples like James’ and many other professional athletes, continue to truly show how powerful the bicycle is. The power to influence not only one city or country, but the world. Everyday people on our planet push for mobility, exercise, fun, or work, positively helping their bodies at a healthy cost to our planet. Fifty-Million in the bank, or .50 ¢, the bicycle doesn’t judge. Balance a bike to balance your life.
Many sports drinks on the market these days tout the restorative power of electrolytes, but what exactly are electrolytes anyway and why are they so important?
Electrolytes are minerals found in our body that carry an electric charge. The most common electrolytes in our diets are sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, and they keep our body's PH in check. Electrolytes are also responsible for regulating our hydration levels, which is why sports drinks are constantly harping on their power to "replenish" and "rehydrate."
