Welcome to the hub of the Southeast! We're your local tour guides, Amanda & Laura, and we love our city.

Up next on our virtual tour showcasing some of the best training spots and hidden gems in cities around the country we are headed to Chicago!
For those of you who haven’t traveled to the greatest city in the Midwest (and perhaps the entire country), you are in for quite a treat. Chicago is known affectionately as a “drinking city with an eating problem” but also has one of the most vibrant active communities in the entire country. Harsh winters and short springs make summer and fall all the more enjoyable in the metropolitan area known to us locals as “Chicagoland”. Here are some of our favorite spots around the city and suburbs that you’ll want to check out on your next visit!
Not all salt is created equal.
On the last blog, we talked about electrolyte balance, and how it’s important to consume a balanced blend during exercise to ensure you get the most out of your hydration. Sodium, is the most crucial of these electrolyte to consume to help retain and utilize the fluid you are consuming. Similar to carbohydrates, lipids, and almost anything in life, all sodium are not equal. In fact, there are specific kinds of sodium you should look for during exercise, and some you should try and avoid as well.
The two types of sodium we’ll focus on for this blog are: salt (sodium chloride), and sodium citrate.
Continuing our virtual road trip, we head north to Colorado, where it can be 80 degrees by 11am, rain at 2pm and snow overnight. The Front Range doesn’t really have season, we just have gear for every adventure possible, no matter the weather. Known for the downtown bike lanes and easy access to the foothills, there is a reason Denver is growing faster than any of the other 50 most-populous cities in the US. Corey and Nick, two members of our CO-based nuun crew, and #teamnuun athlete Cody are here to show you how to live the #nuunlife in Denver.Read More
