179. Cycling Week: Wheels Up with Wahoo Fitness Founder, Chip Hawkins

When Wahoo Fitness Founder, Chip Hawkins launched his company back in 2009, the tech and data scene for fitness and endurance sports was almost non-existent. But thanks to Chip, here we are!

Wahoo Fitness is a game changing fitness technology company that took the old school traditional indoor bike trainer and made it compatible with your mobile devices and laptops offering riders insight into their heartrate, watts, speed, cadence and great online training platforms.

Wahoo Fitness products are compatible with over 110 cycling, running & fitness apps that help maximize and transform your workout.

I sync up with Chip about where Wahoo Fitness began, the inspiration behind the brand and products, the ideation behind the game changing indoor smart trainer, what the indoor cycling landscape was like when Wahoo Fitness launched, how the business has grown and evolved, and what’s new and next for the rest of 2021 and into 2022.  Plus, we talk triathlon, windsurfing, and the big race Chip is currently training for!

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.
