Kate Powlison is the Road Brand Manager at SRAM, the world’s second largest bicycle component manufacturer. Kate is going to dial you into the world of SRAM, the company that makes the cycling industry’s top components and all the things that make your bike move forward.  On this episode, Kate and I do a deep dive into cycling components whether you’re a newbie and just got your first bike, if you’re a seasoned athlete looking to level up, or if you are bike-curious. Kate gives me the scoop on how SRAM began, she chats with me about where her passion for cycling started, what she loves about the sport, and how she became one of the leading faces of SRAM. We also talk about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the cycling industry, and how SRAM pivoted to accommodate the growing demand for bikes.

160. Phil Southerland, Founder of Supersapiens & Co-Founder of Team Novo Nordisk On The Future Of Fueling For Endurance Sports & Fitness

Phil Southerland is the CEO and Co-Founder of Team Novo Nordisk, the first all-diabetic cycling team, and the CEO and Founder of Supersapiens, the groundbreaking continuous glucose monitoring system allowing non-diabetic athletes to purchase continuous glucose monitoring technology and gain insights into how glucose and fuel impact their bodies in real time. Athletes discover which glucose sources provide stable and sustainable energy, understand key glucose performance zones, maintain peak performance, and fine tune their fueling strategies, all through the company’s very cool app and analytics.

Inspired by his own personal experience, Phil was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was just seven months old, but his family was determined for him to live a normal life. After growing up playing sports and falling in love with cycling, Phil realized glucose monitoring wasn’t only necessary for people diagnosed with diabetes—it could be game changing for everyone, especially athletes.

On this episode of Marni on the Move, Phil and I sync up about his passion for cycling, and how he turned his love into a platform for diabetes awareness. He shares his inspiration for Team Novo Nordisk, and the motivation behind starting Supersapiens—the ultimate tool for helping athletes fuel optimally.  Phil and I chat about the science behind glucose monitoring, and the breakthrough potential Supersapiens has for powering athletes, and everyday people, to success. He dials me into how it all works from application of the Abbot Libre Sense  Biosensor to the key data we should be looking for as athletes. Phil also lets me in on the exercise and wellness routines that fuel him for success.

Steve Smith is the Global Brand Manager at Castelli, one of the world’s leading cycling apparel brands and yes, one of my favorites! On this episode of Marni on the Move, Steve and I talk all things cycling from the brands historical roots and influence in the cycling world, tracing all the way back to 19th century Italy to its game-changing performance cycling apparel including aerodynamics, weather protection, comfort and 2021 summer styles.

We discuss how Castelli has revolutionized design and functionality in performance cycling jerseys, jackets, shorts and kits, from introducing LYCRA® to the sport in 1977 and reinventing the bib short to designing its world famous Gabba race jersey, and translating this functionality and high tech design into clothing for everyday recreational cyclists and triathletes. Steve sheds light on the innovation process Castelli implements to remain ahead of the curve when it comes to technology and design for the pros and beyond. He offers invaluable tips on dressing for cycling success for all weather and seasons, how to layer for long rides, and how to dress like a pro with great style.

Steve chats about his personal love of cycling, his favorite places to ride, the career path that led him to move to Italy for his current role at Castelli, where he lives, works and rides in Bassano del Grappa. We talk about the training and rides that fuel Steve for success, some key lessons he has learned from cycling, and what’s on his bucket list for 2021

149. Nelson Gutierrez, Founder, Strictly Bicycles On Cycling, Entrepreneurship & Pursuing Your Passion

When Strictly Bicycles founder, Nelson Gutierrez opened his store in 1994, he dreamed of not only sharing his sport with the world but creating a community of passionate cyclists looking for a welcoming place to socialize, refuel, and purchase the highest quality gear to set them up for success. And that’s exactly what he did—just ask any cyclist where their go-to stop is on a long ride outside NYC. The answer? Strictly Bicycles is the place to be.

On today’s episode, Nelson shares how he fell in love with cycling as a way to expand his horizons and explore new places while growing up in the inner city. He talks about working at a bike shop at the age of 19, and how his managerial position there fueled his entrepreneurial drive and led him to open his own bike shop, Strictly Bicycles.

We discuss how Nelson pivoted his business during the COVID-19 pandemic toward a more virtual experience, and how he kept his customers and employees safe, while remaining open and continuing to produce the Strictly Bicycles experience outside and socially-distanced.

Nelson also offers his sage cycling wisdom, tips and advice on purchasing and maintaining bikes for both first-time and leveling up for seasoned cyclists, as well as how to continue training indoors.  I also sync up with Nelson on how cycling fuels him for entrepreneurship and vice versa. Hint—he’s all about having passion.

ICYMI: Peloton Senior Coach, Matt Wilpers On Shifting Career Gears and His Global Mission To Empower People Through Fitness

Matt Wilpers is a globally renowned group fitness instructor and running coach thanks to his wildly popular fitness programs and classes on Peloton and his HBO’ run coaching gig with Lena Dunham for her popular TV show Girls, while coaching at Mile High Run Club.

On this episode of Marni on The Move (MOTM #71), we talk about Matts love of sports and where athleticism began for him, his passion for coaching and helping others achieve their goals, his training philosophy, turning his love and passion into his career, his amazing classes and programs at Peloton, and of course we do a deep dive into Power Zone Training, FTP, TSS and more.

For Matt, Peloton and his private coaching are not just his job. Fitness and sports have always been a way of life! He was born into skiing. He grew up on the ski slopes, thanks to his mother who worked as a Ski Patroller throughout his childhood.  Flash forward  to his college years, Matt went on to be a NCAA Division 1 Cross Country + Track Athlete at Georgia State University and continued running recreationally after college when he moved to NYC to pursue a career in accounting.  But that all changed for Matt after a running injury forced him to switch gears…His coaching career really began when he signed up for his first spin class. It’s also when his bike and triathlon racing began.

Today, it is Matt’s single focus to use his passion and love of sports to inspire and empower people through being active.  He is a Senior Instructor at Peloton and has a private run coaching business to fuel runners for success.

Peloton is a global interactive fitness platform that brings the energy and benefits of studio-style workouts to the convenience and comfort of home. With thousands of live and on-demand classes, taught by a roster of elite instructors, Peloton delivers real-time motivation and curated playlists from the world’s best artists. The brand’s immersive content is accessible through the Peloton Bike, the Peloton Tread, and Peloton Digital, which provide a full slate of fitness offerings, wherever you are.

Matt has been coaching runners and cyclists of all ability levels since June of 2008. He believes that a technical and hands-on coaching approach in combination with a fun and positive training atmosphere brings out the best performances in his athletes.
