Welcome to Fitter Radio.

Hosted by Coach Bevan McKinnon & Nutritionist Mikki Williden.

Sep 7, 2014

In this episode Bev talks about training with Power and the benefits of training with a Power Meter. He also talks to Joe McQuillan, Exercise Physiologist at Waikato University. Joe has been instrumental in bringing the "Power Guru" Hunter Allen to New Zealand in September/October to conduct Workshops in both Auckland and Christchurch and a 2-day Symposium in Cambridge. Joe tells us more about them and offers listeners discounted entry to both the Workshops and the Symposium plus the chance to win a FREE entry to one of the Workshops.  See show notes for more details and where to buy tickets. In ONE STEP AHEAD Mikki tells us about the benefits (or otherwise) of using coconut water. Our HOT PROPERTY INTERVIEW this week is with Danish triathlete Helle Frederiksen. Helle is part of the Uplace-BMC Pro Triathlon Team and last week won the Hy-Vee 5150 US Champs in Des Moines, Iowa taking home the prize purse of $100,000USD.  Bevan spoke to Helle a few days before the race. In our GEEK-OUT section Mikki gives us an overview of some of the most fascinating studies to have come out of the recent European College of Sports Medicine Conference including the "Sleep Low" study (low carbs after hard training sessions), ice slurries during racing, pacing and more!  We have TWO giveaways again this week. Firstly we are giving away a FREE ENTRY worth $120 to one of the Hunter Allen Training Peaks Workshops (Auckland or Christchurch), and secondly you can win one of the amazing new "Floe Bottles".
