Gift ideas from Angela Naeth, Professional Triathlete.
High caliber training requires high caliber recovery, and these protein bars are up to the challenge. They are easy on the stomach and contain just the right balance of protein, carbs, and fat. With a blend of collagen and grass-fed whey, these bars provide a complete amino acid profile. Angela eats these bars like they’re going out of style because in her words they “seriously taste like I’m eating cookies.”
Every tri starts with the swim, and getting your goggles just right sets the tone for your race. Boasting the best combination of visual, fit, and feel, Angela swears by these high-quality goggles from ROKA. With hydrophobic and anti-fog coatings as well as RAPIDSIGHT technology, these goggles have some serious science backing them up. Don’t worry though – it’s not all function over fun, these goggles come in 12 different colors for every triathlete in your life.
Winter months equal long hours on the trainer, so why not spice up your indoor cycling? With a Zwift membership, you can meet and ride with cyclists around the world from the comfort of your own home. Whether you’re looking for structured workouts, or social rides, there is something for everyone. Pair Zwift Cycling with Zwift run, and you’ve got 2/3 of your winter training covered.
There’s nothing better than the ease and comfort of being able to shift gears with the touch of a button. DI2 gives you instant and accurate shifts even in the most extreme conditions. There is minimal maintenance, and Angela likes these because there’s never been an issue with shifting, travel, or setting new wheels to her bike.
Triathletes log some long hours, and sometimes it can get a little lonely. For accountability as well as a sense of community, joining a team or finding a coach can be the key to success. Angela founded her team iracelikagirl to inspire, empower, and motivate other women in triathlon as well as promote fitness and positive change. QT2 Systems provide complete endurance event training and prep. For 2018, 28 athletes qualified for Kona using this platform.
