How NutriFormance Started

August 25th, 2014|Media|Comments Off on How NutriFormance Started

On a cold January night in 1997, Ellie Zografakis did not watch her favorite TV show—and that’s when the story of the NutriFormance began. That night away from the tube would lead Ellie to Dale Huff, her future husband and business partner. “I decided to not watch Melrose Place on a Thursday night because I needed to get my career going, “ Ellie recalls. “(Dale) was the head of a sports nutrition networking group, and I knew I needed to become part of this group. We started meeting, and I found out Dale and I had some of the same goals.”

NF Client Ron Rubin's story- a lesson about life

September 29th, 2011|Events, Media|1 Comment

Device enables CEO to thrive after near-fatal cardiac arrest

Ron Rubin

So how could this happen? He was a runner with seven marathons under his belt and was preparing for his eighth.

Rubin is the CEO of Republic of Tea, a company that preaches a message of healthy practices to employees and customers: Take life easier, ‘sip by sip rather than gulp by gulp.”

Yet he suffered a ventricular tachycardia — a sudden cardiac arrest characterized by a very rapid and irregular heart beat. It’s often fatal, usually in the aftermath of a heart problem or heart surgery, according to the National Library of Medicine.

Rubin says he survived because of CPR by his son, Todd Rubin, efforts in an emergency room in Tiburon, Calif., and his own peak physical condition.

A week later, back in St. Louis, surgeons at Barnes-Jewish Hospital implanted a small defibrillator.

Dale Huff, NutriFormance
NutriFormance allows clients to choose from low-impact classes like Pilates to high-intensity classes like metabolic training. The gym offers a variety of membership programs. “We have two different membership platforms: hybrid-small group personal training, which is up to 12 in a class. We also have personal training memberships,” explains Dale Huff, co-owner of NutriFormance.

For those dropping the kids off at school and wanting to get back in shape, the memberships are easy. “For one fee, even with a personal trainer just once a week, you get access to the gym and classes,” says Huff. One big thing Huff stresses is consistency. “It’s key when getting back into routine.” In addition to hybrid training, kettlebell classes, cycling, yoga, Pilates and even Sleek Physique classes also are offered.

Huff says activities outside the gym are just as helpful as ones inside. “Try raking your own leaves.”

Do Ergogenic Aids Help or Hinder Athletic Performance?

by Ellie Huff, RD, Dale Huff, CSCS

A review of the scientific research and the safety concerns regarding some of today’s most popular performance-enhancing dietary supplements.

Almost daily, people ask fitness professionals about the latest and greatest dietary supplements that claim to enhance physical performance.

How to Soar in Volleyball

July 21st, 2011|Media|Comments Off on How to Soar in Volleyball

If you want to play volleyball at the elite level, you better start doing abdominal crunches now.

When it comes to driving the ball over the net, a strong core, it turns out, is as important as strong legs and shoulders.

“I played a couple of sand tournaments a couple of weeks ago and that was the first thing that was sore, my abs,” says Lauren Budde, middle hitter with the Washington University Bears.
