Team GPS is how athlete Dustin Vaughan rolls

Need proof that GPS works? Meet Dustin Vaughan, a PURE IBO and a football quarterback for the San Antonio Commanders (Alliance of American Football). He has been fueling himself with GPS products since joining PURE in January 2018.

Being an athlete certainly motivated Dustin to look for quality products to improve his performance. When he learned about the GPS performance line by PURE, he was inspired to join the company. It’s important to him that the products are natural, and he is equally impressed that they are Informed-Sport Certified.

“Athletes are always looking to get an edge up,” Dustin said. “They want energy and need to build their endurance. GPS does all of those without making you feel jittery, because there is no added sugar. I feel good about what I’m putting into my body.”

Dustin was signed by the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2014. He played college football at West Texas A&M. After researching several supplement companies, Dustin decided to join PURE because he really liked what he saw. He joined a year ago and hasn’t looked back. Being around athletes every day, Dustin knows how important talent, ability and success are. He also knows that what you eat is just as important.

Not only does he love the products, but the company’s values match his. “PURE values community and that means a lot to me,” he said. His faith keeps him motivated and he desires to have a positive influence on those around him. “That attitude begins at home and then extends outward.”

“For anyone interested in starting a business with PURE, I’d like to tell them not to get discouraged,” said Dustin. “Try the products out for yourself. For me, I knew I had to trust the company first to share the products with others. If I don’t believe in them myself, how can they?”

Asked if he could have any super power, he said he wishes he could fly. His parents ran track and field in high school and could jump hurdles, something Dustin had difficulty doing. He wishes he could run just as fast, so fast that he could fly … to wherever his heart desires!

I think he already can!

Top fitness trends for 2019

Be adventurous in 2019 and try a new exercise class or a new way to work out. According to the American College of Sports Medicine,1 fitness trackers and group exercise classes will be the top trends of the year. Wearable technology has been among the top trends since 2016 and will be the number-one trend of the new year.

The editors of ACSM’s Health & Fitness Journal® conducted their annual survey to determine health and fitness trends for 2019. There were 40 possible trends on the survey, including 25 trends from previous years. The survey was sent to health and fitness professionals all over the world.

The top 10 predicted fitness trends for 2019 are:

  1. Wearable technology. Smart watches, fitness trackers, heart monitors and more, have ranked among the top trends every year since 2016. Get ready to track and monitor your workouts from day one.
  2. Group training. This is defined as any workout with more than five participants. Grab your accountability partner and get moving.
  3. HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training). A HIIT workout, according to ACSM, involves “short bursts of high-intensity bouts of exercise followed by a short period of rest.” They’re usually 30 minutes or less, though they can be longer. You get a quick and very efficient workout, and you can do it from home if you prefer.
  4. Fitness programs for older adults. Exercise is a great way to maintain bone density, making programs like these beneficial for the older population.
  5. Bodyweight training. No equipment necessary; all you need is you! Think push-ups and planks, exercises you can do anywhere.
  6. Certified fitness professionals. Individuals who have been accredited through “educational programs and certification programs” will be first to be hired in the industry.
  7. Yoga. This ancient practice keeps growing, from goat yoga and power yoga to yogalates and hot yoga. What’s next?
  8. Personal training. This is usually done in a gym, but you can also work out with an online personal trainer.
  9. Functional fitness training. This is using exercise to improve balance, coordination, strength, and endurance to make activities of daily living easier.
  10. Exercise is Medicine. Exercise is Medicine (EIM) is ACSM’s own global health initiative that encourages healthcare providers to get their patients to exercise and then analyze their activity as part of their check-ups.

Other fitness trends include exercise health/wellness coaching, exercise for weight loss, mobile exercise apps, mobility devices, worksite health promotion and workplace well-being programs, outcome measurements, outdoor activities, licensure for fitness professionals, small group personal training and post-rehabilitation classes.

What is Informed-Sport Certification?

The Informed-Sport program was developed to minimize the risk of banned-substance contamination within sports supplement products. Certification involves:

  •  Completion of a Manufacturing Assessment Questionnaire
  • Pre-certification testing of an agreed number of samples
  • Post-certification testing of every batch of product
  • Additional “blind” independent testing

For more information and explanations of the testing process, visit https://www.informed-sport.com/#view_video.

What substances does Informed-Sport screen for?

Products tested for Informed-Sport certification are screened according to substances listed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). WADA was founded by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to curb the use of ergogenic aids, which would give athletes an unfair advantage. This list includes dozens of substances put into seven categories: androgens, peptide hormones, stimulants, diuretics, narcotics and cannabinoids.

At PURE, we pride ourselves on providing safe, effective, top-of-the-line products to support your personal health goals.
