Goals from Team USA Athlete

Hello Steazers!

We are fortunate enough to have amazing fans who are crazy about our products and are willing to share how they discovered a better way with Steaz.

Today, our guest blogger is an athlete in every sense of the word, her credentials include being a member of Team USA Duathlon, APS Athlete, Division 1 NCAA All-American Track and Field, Olympic Festival Member and 2 time USA Track and Field Trials Qualifier. Wow!

Two weeks ago we asked our fans to share their 2012 goals and below, our guest blogging athlete shares her ambitious ones too. Need a kick in the butt, some motivation and some free Steaz? Look no further than here.

Steazers, meet Cheryl Fairweather!


As 2012 starts many of us begin to focus on our goals, particularly those related to fitness. I plan on taking my fitness to a place that’s beyond my physical appearance and focus more on the mental conditioning of the whole mind, body, spirit, and of course my environment.

I set three ambitious goals this year:

1. Return as a member of the Team USA ITU World Duathlon Team

2. Compete as a 2012 USA Cyclist and set myself up to go pro

       (insert drum roll here..........)

3. Qualify for the 2012 USA Track and Field Olympic Trials

Told you they were ambitious :)

I’ve decided that fit levels are individual, so my measurements will be based upon the mental mindset that “I want to achieve this, then I will work hard at it”.

These are your goals, do not give up on them
in the midst of trouble or the appearance of failure.

Fitness is a mental battle, a barrier many of us have to overcome. And athletes are no different than people desiring a healthier lifestyle. We both have to focus on something and disregard the negative in the process. Whether your goal is to run a 5k, lose some weight, or make healthier food choices, you still have to overcome the thoughts that go against your desire to achieve the goals you’ve put in place.

Aren’t all goals designed to push you beyond what you did the year before? Of course they are! That’s the thing about goals, once you set them you have to turn on that inner engine that says go! go! go! go! and once that motors running, never hit the brakes, and never let anyone else drive your ambition!

Never let go of the commitment that was in your heart
when you first wrote down your goals.

Everyday people all across the world set out to do great things, everyday people start the year with their goals, and everyday someone checks: accomplished.  The thing about goal setting is:

You have to attempt it in order to know if you’ll reach it.

2012 is the year of getting out of the “I wish I had done this” or “ I really should have tried that”. That’s just it! Once you stop thinking about the possible failure, you’ll allow yourself to see the wonderful results and strides you made along the way :)

Okay by now, it’s official...I’m ambitious! I just can’t seem to be a part of something and not go for it all. Obviously, there’s going to be some major changes in my personal life. One thing I’m happy I don’t have to change is my use and love for Steaz!

Steaz Energy drinks gives me the energy I need and it doesn’t interfere with my healthy mental state, lifestyle, or environment! You have no idea how excited I am about Steaz! Oh and the cute little energy shots are so portable! Ask me how I know? I run with them in my jersey! Yep Ladies and Gentleman you will find Steaz in my sports bottle, my jersey, and I even keep an extra in my transition bag just in case. This my friends, is 100 % true!

I’m really happy to be reaping the benefits of the commitment Steaz made when they set their goals in the beginning of their establishment. Those very goals are seen as accomplishments every time someone picks up a clean fuel solution packed in a beautiful Steaz bottle. I know I’ll be using them quite a bit during my quest to accomplish my 2012 goals!

I truly hope as you set out to accomplish your goals this year, you will look at the impact of everything in your life. You need your body to accomplish your goals so take care of every aspect of it in 2012. And remember, achievements are goals you set in the future for you to say:

I set it...I did it…I completed it...I accomplished it!

    Steaz meets my healthy requirements, it helps me focus and push through a 4 day week of college, volunteer coaching 4-5 days a week, and my 2-3 hours daily workout routine. it keeps me focused and balanced when i'm training for wrestling with no crashing at the end of the day, yet there is not an extremely wired effect from it; all with the added bonus of getting it from the local family store!

    Steaz is my go to drink at work in the morning because it's satisfying and gives me what I need to start the day/

    Steaz has been my lifeline throughout the last six months, ever since discovering the tastiest of tea beverages. The biggest enjoyment I get from Steaz is sharing it w/ family & friends who often times are drinking rather unhealthy beverages. For instance, my brother was drinking a lot of energy drinks crafted by a terrible company, with no care for the people drinking them. I dread seeing my family support these companies, so I've slowly began sharing alternatives, and it's just so great to see the look on their faces after tasting a Steaz drink. :O) :O) Whether it is the tasty, fruity -energy drinks, or rather a zero calorie Steaz sparking green tea. Right down to the cans that I have enjoyed thoroughly time and time again. It's all good.

    Hip Hip Hooray for Staez!!! I am a mom of two very busy boys (Jackson 2yrs and Beau 6mths) I enjoy a Staez energy drink daily so I can keep up with them and try my very best to be a SUPER MOM :)

    I do believe I forgot to mention my goals, and though their not very ambitious as far as accomplishments go, there a step in the right direction (one step at a time). To be more consistent in my daily activity, to not be so lazy and fulfill my days with plenty of exerted energy. I'd like to be more present in the lives of family & friends (the most important). Finally the most ambitious of my three goals is to take the steps to begin my dream of learning Russian language. Thanks for the contest.

    Steaz Energy keeps me going during those long all nighters for University. It tastes much better than redbull and I don't feel guilty about having one every now and again! Yay STEAZ!

    My name is Stefanie and I am a Steaz Berry Energy junkie. It is my go to drink for energy, mental clarity, and immunity boost. Though my competitive sports days are over, my life is a decathalon. Not only do I own a business, I'm also a massage therapist, a tutor, a mom, and a chauffeur to my kids' hockey, swim, and baseball practices/games. My 18 hour days would be unbearable without Steaz. As my nine year old son noticed, "without your Steaz you're kind of cranky,"

    Steaz keeps me motivated and hydrated after my walks and workouts by the great taste of the zero calorie green teas. My favs are the raspberry and black cherry flavors :)

    As a fulltime working mother, I am making it through college, evenings and weekend classes - with zero berry energy STEAZ! I swear by Steaz it makes me focus.

    I'm on some pretty strong meds that make me tired for most of the day. I used to drink normal energy drinks like they were air, but they're so full of crap and they're terrible for you, just resulting in gained weight. Since Steaz is organic and on the lower end calorie-wise, I've found that I can drink it and get a significant energy rush without all the crap that comes with normal energy drinks. The problem is, there's only one store I know of that carries it in my entire county.

    They (whoever they is) say bad things happen in threes and they aren't lying. Last week, my long time girlfriend left me, I was rejected for a job offer that otherwise would have changed my life, and my car broke down on the way to an interview for another great job opportunity. It was only 10 AM Friday and I was sitting in my bed broken down and feeling useless. I was looking for motivation to keep going on such a bad day and I remembered that Steaz had tweeted me earlier in the week so I bought a can of their Energy drink from Whole Foods a few days later. I didn't want Red Bull because I knew I could ill afford the crash so I drank my delicious Steaz Energy to get a kick. It was the all natural energy I needed to go for a run to and in a local park for some all natural fresh air and when I got home, I showered and sent my resume to more employers than I never had previously. Since I did't crash from the Steaz I was able to go out with some buddies later that night and meet some new nice girls. I needed that motivation and confidence and I needed it to be natural and real. Not an artificial sugar high. Steaz Energy keeps me motivated to keep going when failure is staring in my face because with enough motivation I can be sure failure can only see my sweaty back sprinting in the fresh breeze toward a better day.
