Momentous – Absolute Zero 100% Plant

Momentous was founded in 2016 with a simple goal: to create the best protein supplement on the market. They did this by consulting with the best dietitians and trainers from various athletic backgrounds and the result was a superior protein powder that not only tasted great, but also helped athletes train harder and recover faster. In 2018, Momentous debuted their vegan protein supplement with pro climber Alex Honnold to complement their already existing line of whey based proteins.

Pso-Rite – Psoas Release Tool & Personal Massager

Of all the muscles in the body, the Psoas tends to get the tightest. Coincidentally, reaching it to stretch and release can be a difficult endeavor. The Pso-Rite was developed specifically to target and relieve the Psoas, but works equally well at reaching other hard to reach muscles and muscle fibers.

Four Sigmatic Elixirs

While Four Sigmatics products have been on our radar for awhile now, the benefits of mushroom based products have not become mainstream yet… Lion’s Mane, Chaga, Reishi, and Cordyceps are the four main mushrooms utilized in all of Four Sigmatics products. The mushrooms Four Sigmatic utilizes are highly concentrated with adaptogens, which help reduce adrenal fatigue and return the body back to a state of homeostasis. Each specific mushroom has different adaptogenic qualities that help you be your best self, from increasing energy, to calming your nerves when your adrenals surge.

The Wave Tool

Soft tissue release has often been considered an advanced sports massage technique. Companies like Wave seek to change that by providing a relatively inexpensive product which they pair with instructional online guides for proper usage. Soft tissue release has been shown to increase healing time for muscle ligaments and the fascia by increasing blood flow to the area, helping you to get back to your favorite activities faster.

Suga Yoga Mat

Captain Liz Clark, who has been on a sailing journey for the past 12 years, approves of this yoga mat made from recycled wetsuits. Suga Yoga Mats are made in the USA and are all one of a kind. Suga has so far collected over 21,000 old and used wetsuits and have diverted 32 tons of neoprene from landfills.

“The fact that Suga mats are upcycled from old wetsuits that would otherwise end up in a landfill was the initial draw for me. But when I practiced on a Suga mat, I was hooked—no other mat I’ve ever tried has such firm cushion, solid grip, and sturdy feeling under my feet! Plus, the faint smell of neoprene triggers memories of surf! ” – Liz Clark
