No Medical Supply Store Here….

Adaptive Sports Equipment for Innovative Athletes.

I’m very proud to introduce my brand new adaptive sports equipment store, called How iRoll Sports.  I’ve always disliked the idea of purchasing my wheelchair sports equipment from a “medical supply” store online… That’s why I created How iRoll Sports.  We offer Adaptive wheelchair sports equipment and fitness/exercise gear.  We also have some very cool apparel and wheelchair “iAccessories” that you will NOT find anywhere else!

Please checkout our brand new store at How iRoll Sports.  We’re excited to offer TOP END hand-cycles and racing wheelchairs at the lowest prices on the market, period! Find a lower price and we’ll beat it every time!

Below are only a few of our new innovative products.

The Ziesel…. Bad-Ass Offroad Adaptive Wheelchair Tank Toy

Ziesel- Offroad Adaptive Tank wheelchair

Whether you’re going up the side of a snowy mountain or offroad hiking a dirt trail, THIS toy is what you need! The Ziesel appears to be the baby result of a wheelchair and tank fornicating… Made by a company called Mattro in Tirol, Austria, this piece of adaptive wheelchair equipment is truly incredible… Although, all good things come with a hefty price tag. With a base price of 21,000 Euro, you may need to take out a 2nd mortgage to finalize a purchase, but at least you’ll have a sweet ride! To see more, visit the Ziesel website here.

Early bird gets the worm..

20130818-001056.jpg

Waking up early to train sucks, but the feeling you get at the end the workout is priceless.. And the best part is that you still have the entire day ahead of you. Furthermore, if you can bang out a solid workout first thing in the morning, you’re much more likely to eat clean and healthy throughout the remaining day.

If you absolutely hate training hard in the morning, consider swimming. As a paratriathlete, I swim more than I hand-cycle or use the racing wheelchair. It’s an amazing cardio workout, and the best part is it’s a relaxing morning workout once you get the hang of it.

So rise and shine.. Early bird gets the worm. Be stronger than all your excuses..

Calm Before the Storm… USA ParaTriathlon Nationals

So, I haven’t posted in awhile… Party because I recently started a new job, partly because I’m lazy, but mostly because I’ve been training my ass off for ParaTriathlon Nationals in Austin, TX next week on Memorial Day.

Clermont Logo

This past weekend I participated in the 2013 USAT “Florida Regional” triathlon in Clermont, Florida. If there’s one thing I hate about triathlons, it’s the cold… Waking up at 5:30AM to be ready to compete at 7:30AM, fine… I can handle that. But, add cold weather +  0.5 mile lake swim, and I consider going back to sleep! I learned 2 things while competing this past weekend in Clermont.  1) Hand-cycling up the hills in Clermont was ridiculously hard, and I never want to do it again.  2) Always use Harpix handball resin on wheelchair racing gloves if there’s a chance of rain.. I didn’t apply resin on my gloves the night before, and as a result they had zero grip. I was forced to push 3 miles with bare hands.

Crossing the finish-line at Clermont, FL Regional paratriathlon

Crossing the finish-line at 2013 Clermont, FL Regional paratriathlon

Of the handful of participants in my division I was able to get 1st place. Next paratriathlon is in May. 2013 Nationals is being held Memorial Day weekend on May 27, 2013 in Austin, TX. This will be the true test, as the top elite paratriathletes will be competing, and I’ll be racing for points and rank.
