This Week: Maggie & Emma FitLabPGH Labs

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? Emma: I was born in Ohiopyle, then lived briefly in Scott Township (South Hills of Pittsburgh), before being adopted by Ben when I was 11 weeks old.
Maggie: I was born in Carrollton, Ohio at Camolot Labradors; when I was 8 weeks old, Ben purchased me and moved me to Finleyville.

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area?  Walking through fall leaves; carrying sticks; and playing in the snow…we also enjoy hanging out with Ben’s cats, Gracie and Mia.

Describe your fantasy movement-focused vacation…cost is not an object…where do you go and what do you do?  Our whole lives are vacations…we are not working dogs, but rather pets…who are part of the family…but if we were to go on vacation, we’d like to go somewhere cold, with a lot of snow, where we could take long walks while Ben tries to keep up with us on snowshoes

What is your go-to weekday breakfast? Your weekend breakfast?  Sweet potato and venison dog food, 7 days a week…with a smear of canned pumpkin

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy.  Emma: carrots and frozen cranberries;

What is the most unusual and/or challenging movement activity you’ve done? Would you do it again?  Most challenging- walking and running on icy, hard surfaces…so we insist on the majority of our movement on soft surfaces

What movement activity/event are you looking forward to in the next year?  Walks through deep snow, and good quality sticks to carry

Would you rather go scuba diving or skydiving?  Neither, we’d rather go to a new wooded area to sniff.  Emma would like to note that she’d consider skydiving as long as it could be a tandem jump with Ben.

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice?  Sleeping, including naps in the Jeep on the way back from our walks…being groomed by the cats is nice too

What is the one place visitors to Pittsburgh “must” see?  Mingo Creek Park – lots of trails, smells, and hills…but if your visitors bring dogs, please make sure they are leashed unless they are in the off-leash area!!!

Podcast #1:19 Stacy T. Sims, PhD, applied researcher, innovator and entrepreneur



FitLabPGH has a sister podcast- Moving2Live.  This week we bring you an episode from Moving2Live that should be of interest.

Stacy T. Sims, PhD, is currently a Senior Research Scientist at the University of Waikato after returning to academia from a 6-year hiatus in industry. She is an applied researcher, innovator and entrepreneur in human performance, specifically sex differences in training, nutrition, and environmental conditions.

Prior to being launched into industry, she served as an exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist at Stanford University from 2007 to 2012, where she specialized in sex differences of environmental and nutritional considerations for recovery and performance, specializing in women’s health and performance. With the unique opportunities Silicon Valley has to offer, during her time at Stanford, she had the opportunity to translate earlier research into consumer products and a science-based layperson’s book written to explain sex differences in training and nutrition across the lifespan. Both the consumer product companies and the book challenged the existing dogma for women in exercise, nutrition, and health outcomes.

Her contributions to the international research environment and the sports nutrition industry has established a new niche in sports nutrition; and established her reputation as the expert in sex differences in training, nutrition, and health. As a direct result, she has been named as one of the top 50 visionaries of the running industry (2015), one of the top 40 women changing the paradigm of her field (2017), one of the top four visionaries in the outdoor sport industry (2017), and one of the top four individuals changing the landscape in triathlon nutrition (2017).

A regular featured speaker at professional and academic conferences, including those hosted by USOC, HPSNZ, and USA cycling, she resides in Mount Maunganui with her husband and young daughter.

Movement…part of what makes your life complete.  Each week our #podcast FitLabPGH brings you a new interview on Sunday and movement tips and lifestyle hacks.

For week 1 of 2019…streaking w espresso, try something new and proper clothing ideas for cold weather fun.

Our FitLabPGH Feature this week was Ken Presutti.  We are always looking for more Features!!  Learn more about our Features and submit a questionnaire to be highlighted, but first check out this the tips & hacks for this week:

FitLabPGH Features- Ken Presutti



FitLabPGH is a podcast about movement and movement opportunities in the Pittsburgh, PA area.  Once a week we also highlight a FitLabPGH mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity.  The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability.

This Week: Ken Presutti

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area?  Yes, raised in Springdale and now in the South Hills

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area?  We have so many great trails for running and biking, that I could take up almost all of my time doing those! If I’m going beyond that though, I’d add open water swimming up at Moraine State Park, yoga at any one of the awesome studios Pittsburgh has to offer, or water skiing/wake boarding down one of our rivers…

Describe your fantasy movement-focused vacation…cost is not an object…where do you go and what do you do?  For right now, the realistic ones are traveling on the weekends and making mini-vacations with my family during triathlon race season. I love being able to spend time with my wife & son prior to racing. If I’m shooting for the true fantasy vacation though, it’s definitely a trip doing the hike to base camp at Everest. I’m not big on the cold, so I have no desire to actually go up the mountain, but an exhausting hike through Asia sounds right up my alley!

What is your go-to weekday breakfast? Your weekend breakfast?  Coffee with a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream or MCT oil. On the weekends (or work from home days) it’s bacon and eggs. But, don’t be fooled, breakfast is not the most important meal of the day!

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy.  Another almost impossible question to answer! I’m going to go with the Colossal Fish sandwich from Primanti Bros and/or Wings from Wings, Suds, and Spuds!

What is the most unusual and/or challenging movement activity you’ve done? Would you do it again?  I’m a huge fan of the Race to Anyplace, which takes place every February. It’s an indoor bike race (on spin bikes), where you basically go as fast as you can, with no resistance, for 15 minutes. Then, you hop off and another team member gets on and does the same thing. Each team member rides 2 times, and there are 12 team members. As an indoor cycle instructor, I’d never, ever recommend anyone ride like that on a regular basis, but it’s awesome for this event and raises money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Over the past several years my team, the “Space Monkey Mafia” has racked up a lot of miles!

What movement activity/event are you looking forward to in the next year?  I’m registered for Ironman Louisville, and am really looking forward to that. However, I’d also add the Pittsburgh Marathon as this year I’m working with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to coach their charity runners to complete the race.

Would you rather go scuba diving or skydiving?  Sky diving for sure… It seems less claustrophobic!

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice?  Recovery starts with the activity itself. As a ChiRunning instructor I’m very focused on moving efficiently and with proper form to avoid injury in the first place. That said, self-care and recovery is still very important.

Prior to a few weeks ago, I would have said Yin Yoga, but since I’ve picked up a pair of Rapid Reboot compression boots it’s a close call. In fact, I think I’m definitely going with 30 minutes in the boots, and a good Cabernet.

What is the one place visitors to Pittsburgh “must” see?  There is so much that it would be impossible to pick one place. The triathlete in me is going to assume I’m recommending this to another triathlete, and I’d say just get on the GAP trail downtown. You’ll go from the heart of the city, over to Southside, past UPMC Sports where the Steelers practice throughout Homestead, into McKeesport, and further if you keep going. Along the way, you’ll get a sense for how the city grew up on the river. How it became an industrial hub, and how we’ve changed over the years to become a great place to live, work, and move!

FitLabPGH
has a sister podcast- Moving2Live.  This week we bring you an episode from Moving2Live that should be of interest.  It is a little longer than most of our podcasts, but we think you will like listening to Don Moxley, Director of Applied Science and Brand Development at Grow Healthy in North Palm Beach, FL.

Don (in his own words): over 30 years experience of improving the performance or alleviating the unnecessary suffering of humans, or teaching others how to do the same. Experienced leader, Highly skilled sports scientist with over 30 years experience in elite sport. Understanding the central nervous system and how to measure individuals’ status led me to explore the different modalities used to adjust or “tune” the autonomic system. I’m currently exploring how cannabinoids can play a part in human performance and reducing human suffering.

I am an exercise physiologist who specializes in fitness/athletic assessment, player training and performance optimization. My expertise includes extensive use of wearable technology for assessment. I am experienced using Omegawave, Firstbeat, Polar, Mio, Heartmath, Zephyr, Velotron, Halo as well as many other tools.

My last 3 years have been focused on supporting the Ohio State University Wrestling Team. Prior experience includes working as an Asst. Professor and Coordinator of the Exercise Science program at Urbana University. Owner of Lemonade Neighborhood Fitness. Founder and CEO of ViA Performance Systems. I’ve worked as the Director of Sales for Polar Electro and coached at The Ohio State University. Additionally, I have directed training programs for Olympic Medalists, NCAA All-Americans, professionals, fitness clubs, physical education programs and sports organizations across the continent.

I wrestled for The Ohio State University where I captained the team and earned a Big 10 Championship in 1985. I like to keep myself in the classroom teaching physiology, kinesiology, exercise physiology and nutrition courses at local colleges. My daughter Jaclen is a member of the Ohio State University Lacrosse Team, her mother and I are very proud of her and the growth mindset that nurtures her growth.
