STARTING A NEW fitness routine or diet program can be tough, but it's an endeavor that comes along with a healthy dose of hope andmotivation. During week one, workouts hurt so good, grocery shoppingisn't so bad, and meal prepping is downright exciting—you're finally turning over that new leaf that's been stuck to the pavement for who knows how long, and it's your time to carve out those six-pack abs. But by weeks two, three, and four, the excuses start piling up. We get it: The gym's suddenly too crowded, you're too tired to meal-prep, and maybe your biceps are sore after all those curls. Suddenly, you could use a shot of motivation and structure to get back on track.
Now more than ever, people are making their health and wellness a top priority. Through innovative technological advancements, it is becoming easier and easier. One of the main components that keeps people from focusing on their overall well-being is the time and energy it takes to workout and eat well while balancing everything else in their lives. Trifecta, one of the nation’s largest all-organic meal delivery services, just expanded to solve this problem and create an incredible user experience that encompasses an app being rebranded as, “Trifecta — Training, Nutrition, and Tracking.” They acquired DMW Design Group, LLC, and the #1 functional fitness app on the IOS market called Pocket WOD (Workout of the Day) in order to introduce an all-in-one solution for how people track their food and performance.
Meal plan subscription servicesare relieving us from hours spent in the kitchen when we could be doing well, anything else, really. Here, we share our top picks on the scene right now. Prepping ain't easy. In fact, according to a 2014 study conducted by the USDA, women spend an average of 51 minutes a day prepping meals- and that only accounts for the chopping, cooking, and clean-up time. Tack on precious hours each week spent grocery shopping, and it really adds up.
In September 2017, UFC fighter Paige “12 Gauge” VanZant suffered a huge blow—but it wasn’t inside the octagon. Just weeks before her first Flyweight-division fight against opponent Jessica “Evil” Eye, Paige was forced to withdraw from UFC 216 on advisement from her doctors due to an intervertebral disc injury. But as Paige put it via Twitter, “When it rains, it pours,” as she also simultaneously battled ear and sinus infections, all adding to the disappointment of missing out on the inaugural fight. Now, Paige is back in training camp with her fight face on, ready to finally debut in her weight class on January 14.

Urijah Faber is an Ultimate Fighting Championship Hall of Famer and is one of the most successful bantamweight fighters in UFC history. Before that, he was a two-time NCAA qualifier in wrestling. And before that, he was a teenager in Isla Vista, Calif. with parents who he described as “kind of hippie.” “They were about health and fitness from the womb,” Faber said. “Organic food, no conventional medicine. You did not want to get sick at my household. It wasn’t like you got some Tylenol or the quick fix. You’re eating raw, drinking vinegar and carrot garlic beet juice.” Faber’s childhood focus on fitness and nutrition helped fuel his career in the UFC and also led him to invest in Trifecta, a meal-delivering nutrition program.
Superstar CrossFit athlete Brooke Ence had a rocky start to 2017. After undergoing major spinal surgery — a bone graft infusion in her neck — at the end of March, her training came to a halt and she was forced to go from competitive athlete to patient in recovery. Brooke sat down with Life & Style to not only talk about her recuperation, but also her conviction to make it to the 2018 CrossFit Games — a goal she missed in 2017.
Trifecta Nutrition is a meal delivery service that offers USDA certified organic meals delivered fresh to your doorstep. The meals arrive vacuum sealed, unlike most delivery services that have food in frozen on plastic containers. You can pick a certain meal plan type such as Paleo, “Clean,” vegetarian or vegan or pick a la carte options. The A La Carte offerings include tuna steak, salmon, bison—not your typical chicken and beef order from other delivery services. We tried Trifecta Nutrition’s meals and overall, the food tasted great and wasn’t overly seasoned.
411mania recently had the chance to sit down and speak to former WEC featherweight champion and UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber. Urijah Faber recently ended his MMA career in December 2016, following a Brad Pickett at UFC on Fox 22, but he’s still an active presence in the world of athletics and combat sports. Besides working as a coach and trainer for the next generation of MMA superstars at Team Alpha Male, Faber is working with numerous brands and companies to further good health and mixed martial arts. Faber is also currently Managing Partner and an investor for Trifecta Nutrition, who recently partnered with the UFC to sponsor UFC 217 and former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt.
What’s for dinner? It’s a perennial question. For some, it’s an excuse to dig into the newest cookbooks or blogs for inspiration. But for those of us who hate grocery shopping, don’t feel comfortable with our cooking skills, or have zero time to plan (let alone cook!), the question causes a fair bit of anxiety and stress. Luckily, more companies are entering the meal delivery business pioneered by Blue Apron (among others). From meal kits (complete with recipes and pre-portioned ingredients) to prepared meals and smoothie packs, companies want to make home-cooked, healthy meals convenient and easy. And they are tailored to nearly every diet under the sun, from Paleo to gluten-free to omnivores to vegans.

UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber has a vested interest in UFC 217. His stablemate and protege UFC men's bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt will defend his title against former Team Alpha Male member TJ Dillashaw. Much has been made of Dillashaw's tumultuous exit from the team, and Saturday night's fight will somewhat bring all of the talking and bitterness to a head. I had a chance to speak with Faber about that issue as well as the intense training regiment through Trifecta that Garbrandt has engaged in to rehab his injured back and to prepare to defend his title.
Urijah Faber, Duane Ludwig, Mickey Gall and Jason Buchamer. Faber talked about his busy weekend, which included supporting Lance Palmer at PFL: Fight Night on Thursday and bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt at UFC 217 on Saturday. Ludwig, despite all the animosity with Team Alpha Male, wanted to be clear that he loves all the guys at the Sacramento-based gym. His only differences are with Faber. Gall feels like more fighters are taking the cue that he and others before him laid out, being more vocal post-fight and connecting with the promotion and fans on upcoming matchups. Former MMAJunkie Radio intern Buchamer recapped Episode 8 of “The Ultimate Fighter 26.”
Former professional dancer Brooke Ence was focused on training for the 2015 CrossFit Games when Hollywood came calling. Warner Bros. director Zack Snyder wanted her for the role of an Amazon warrior in "Justice League" (out on Nov. 17). After some hesitation over interrupting her rising CrossFit career, she took the role, and soon another one was offered to her: that of the Amazonian warrior Penthesilea in "Wonder Woman." Watching herself in this summer's blockbuster hit was exciting, to say the least. "It was surreal and honestly just made me super hungry for more silver-screen time," she says.

It's not every day that a big-name director envisions a superhero battle scene starring you- and only you- front and center, kicking ass and taking names. It's also unusual for said bigwig to seek you out, follow you on social media, then have his "people" call you to audition. Brooke Ence got that call from Warner Bros., she was a few weeks out from the 2015 CrossFit Games, her rookie debut. Zack Snyder- a director known for blockbuster comic-book and superhero films such as 300, Watchmen, Man of Steel, and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice- his people said, wanted her to audition for his next movie.
Facebook today announced it has extended its partnership with CrossFit Inc. through '18, making the social media site the exclusive digital home of the Reebok CrossFit Games. Facebook's live coverage will include studio segments and behind-the-scenes access throughout the competition. CrossFit also has added organic meal delivery service Trifecta as a sponsor for the '17 and '18 CrossFit Games.
CrossFit athlete Brooke Ence is as close to a real-life Amazon as one could hope to be, so it only makes sense that she was cast to play one in Wonder Woman and Justice League. The former dancer has placed in the top 15 at the CrossFit Games and generated a massive social media following in just a few years, becoming an inspiration to female athletes everywhere in the process.
Trifecta Inc., an organic meal delivery service based in West Sacramento, won the Sacramento Kings Capitalize contest for startups.
Trifecta was among the four regional startup companies that competed in the finals of the contest, which gives its winner $10,000 and an opportunity to pitch their idea to angel investors.

Three things I know: You're busy. I'm busy. And it takes a lot of time to prepare and cook healthy meals.
And that's a real problem, because studies show a perceived lack of time is the most frequently reported barrier to healthy eating. After all, most people already know what they should eat--they just don't have the time (or think they don't have the time, which amounts to the same thing).
Strength sports news, commentary, analysis, and entertainment.

With almost 20 years in the health and fitness industry, starting with his first job at a local gym when he was 15 years old, Greg has seen many diets, fads, and exercise systems come and go. With all of those years in the industry, he has seen one thing above all determine someone’s body type—how they eat. With that in mind, he partnered up with his sister Elizabeth Connolly to launch Trifecta.
