WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Nationals and Astros unveiled their new Spring Training facility a year ago. Now, on the eve of its second season, the two clubs are announcing a new naming rights partner, unveiling the new name and logo for the FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches on Wednesday afternoon.

Executives from Washington, Houston and FITTEAM all gathered behind home plate for the ceremony Wednesday, two days before Opening Day at the ballpark, to share the start of a 12-year partnership with the growing heart and wellness brand in the Palm Beach county.

“This ballpark is amazing,” FITTEAM CEO Chris Hummel said. “All the Spring Training ballparks I’ve been in are great, but this is definitely another level. It’s something we’re really proud of. We’re excited about the partnership and the commitment to excellence.”

The Spring Training home of the Nationals and Astros can claim a variety of milestones between the two teams. The Astros won the 2017 World Series championship and include the American League’s Most Valuable Player in Jose Altuve. The Nationals won the National League East last year and have the NL’s back-to-back Cy Young Award winner in Max Scherzer.

There is sure to be a ton of star power on the field during the spring in the newly renamed park.

“Just going above and beyond, it’s important to align ourselves with partners where that’s their philosophy and mentality,” Hummel said. “That’s definitely the Astros and Nationals.”

Go for No! Yes is the Destination, No is How You Get There By: Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz

“The salesperson never decides when the sale is over; the customer does.”

“Courage is acting in the face of fear. It’s being afraid of something and doing it anyway.”

“Yes is the destination, No is how you get there!”

• Be like a kid and keep asking and keep getting rejected until you get “Yes”
• Fall in love with “No!”
• 85% of all interactions between retail salespeople and shoppers end without the salesperson ever asking for a buying decision
• There is magic in the word “Next”
• When everything in life is over and done with, no one will remember your failures, just your successes. And neither will you.
• 92% of all salespeople give up without asking for the sale a fifth time, but research also shows that sixty percent of all customers say no four times before they finally say yes.
• Look at “No” as “Not yet.”
• Fail big

The Compound Effect By: Darren Hardy

• You need a deep why for doing stuff. With a why that is meaningful enough, you will do almost anything. (Think of Kristy exercising for the wedding.)
• Too many people focus on achievement without fulfillment.
• If you create goals for yourself that have friction with your values, you’re going to self-sabotage or feel guilty about your progress. For example, if your family is a high priority, but you set high financial goals for yourself then there is friction between those two goals. (Note: this is basically identity-based habits. You can’t have friction between your identity and your goals.)
• Design the life you want first and the business you want second. Most people choose a career before thinking about what kind of life they want to build. (Note: great idea. Even better idea might be to test lifestyles. Try one project in various “lives” and see which you enjoy most. Write a book (author), show a photo project in a gallery (photographer), etc.)
• The Law of Attraction is simply directing your attention toward something that was already there.
• Write down your most important goals.
• When you set a goal, most people ask, “What do I need to do to achieve your goal?” Instead, you should ask “Who do I need to become?”
• What is your entertainment vs. education ratio? The top 20% of people spend their time focused on education.
• Stop watching the news. The news just aggregates the worst, saddest, and most stressful stories every day.
• If their is a difference between what you say and what you do, then your behavior is the winner.
• Identify your triggers for your bad habits: the who, what, where, and when that prompts you to start your bad habits.
• Start by eliminating your triggers. Throw out junk food, etc.
• Stop lying and justifying hard choices by saying things like, “It’s not fair for everyone to avoid sweets just because I don’t want to eat sweets.”
• Dean Ornish study found it was easier for people to ditch lots of bad habits at the same time.
• Any new habit has to work inside your current life and lifestyle. The gym can’t be out of the way. It has to be on the way.

Being a born and raised Florida girl, I can’t say I know what it’s like to appreciate the sensations of sipping warm Eggnog by a fire during the holiday season, but I imagine it’s popular for good reason. The creamy texture and warm spices of Eggnog can naturally heat you right up! Maybe even throw in some ice and drink it outside if our in the South like me. 😉

I know I can’t be the only one that feels like the weeks between Halloween and the new year move incredibly fast! With so much to do and everything moving so quickly, it’s easy to run low on energy. Everyone is busy traveling, celebrating holidays, working, and somehow finding time to take care of their health (hopefully!)

 

When time seems tight and energy is low, it’s important to prioritize our health and the food choices more than ever! These weeks during the holiday season can be extremely stressful, physically and emotionally, so our immune system might suffer. Not only does FIT help keep our energy level high, but easy smoothies like this LEAN Peppermint Patty Protein Shake keep you full while on-the-go! This combination is not only delicious but it keeps cravings at bay when you might be tempted to reach for a less-healthy option.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Serving FITTEAM LEAN
  • 1/2 c Greek yogurt (or Non-Dairy version of choice)
  • 1/2 c Non-Dairy Milk
  • 2 tsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Peppermint Extract
  • 1/2 – 1 c Ice (depending on desired consistency)
  • Optional (for texture and a little more nutrients): Either ½ Avocado (for a higher-fat, lower carb version) or ½ Banana (great for post-workout smoothies)

Needing a little energy after the past weekend?  When your body isn’t necessarily used to a surplus of carbohydrates (or FOOD, in general), we can feel it! Lethargy, lack of motivation, even signs of mild depression can kick in. Our digestion can slow down, we’re unable to focus, and we’re not exactly feeling LEAN by any means.

Thanksgiving has become one of those times when our caloric intake is at a surplus. The holidays can have us traveling, not working out, and making food choices that we normally wouldn’t make. All is just fine; it’s important to rest, recover and enjoy time with friends and family while celebrating. BUT, (Especially with the FITTEAM Marathon right around the corner!) it’s time for a fresh start to your week and to get back on track to feeling your BEST! 

The ingredients in this Thanksgiving Detox Smoothie will have you feeling LEAN, energized, and ready to take on the rest of the year (including more holiday celebrations AND the marathon) in no time!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Serving FITTEAM LEAN
  • 1 Banana, frozen
  • 1 tbsp Bee Pollen
  • 2 tsp Powdered Greens (of choice)
  • 1 Green Apple, cubed
  • 1/2 c Lime Juice
  • 1 c Spinach
  • 1 Cucumber, cubed
  • 1/2 c Almond Milk (or other non-dairy milk of choice)

Instructions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth! Enjoy immediately!
