What a great conversation with Nicole Sawyer, ocupational therapist, business owner, and overall awesomeness. Her company works with kids and adults. She loved neuroscience in school, which means she loved working with patients how have nuerologivcal disorders like Parkinson's disease, have suffered a stroke, MS, and everything in between. She began to further her carrer and understanding by taking some continuing education classes and working on intergration of reflexes (what is that you ask? Listen to this episode). These techniques she learned had a tremendous affect on her own health and training so she expanded her practice to start working more with athletes and adults and has had amazing success. This was such a cool conversation and big takeaway is to focus on taking care of yourself and making sure YOU are doing some sort of "self care".  More info:

EP61 | Shana Fitch from Palmetto Tribe

Meet USA Triathlon Elite Youth & Junior  Certified Coach Shana Fitch with Palmetto Tribe! Shana is someone with 2 passions and somehow has merged them together to create something awesome! Can you picture kids racing triathlons and training for endurance events! We can! And We love it! Shana created Palmetto Tribe for exactly that! She wanted to give kids the opportunity to learn and grow through training and teamwork with endurance sports. Her program has made endurance fun for these kids and given them a place to safely push their limits and grow. They have created a "tribe" where the kids learn amazing skills both in training and outside of training...in life! 

Shana ran the 400 and 800 in college at Virginia Tech then eventually found triathlons and get hooked! She loves triathlons and the kids so much! She made the bold decision to leave her digital marketing job and go all in with Palmetto Tribe! The program offers 6 week training programs and they even have a travel team where kids compete and train together!! They are swimming, biking, and running! And throwing in some cross training and life lessons as well!!! 

Shana program is so innovative and impactful. They take on a wide range of things beyond endurance training and trying to make these kids overall beter athletes and frankly, we believe, better humans.
