“I think that’s one thing being an athlete teaches you is you learn to read your body quite well. Your mental well-being is important and your baby senses that. That time away, just those few hours on your bike or going for a run, or doing something for yourself is so important for you to be  the best mom you can be because you come back and you’re more full of energy and ready to give your all.”     -Nikki Brammeier

InsideTracker is a company that uses bloodwork to assess biomarkers, blood analysis, athletic performance, and nutrition software to optimize fitness and longevity.  Founded in 2009, the Boston company first started working with professional athletes who wanted to see what their biomarkers, hormone and mineral profiles looked like during their training and how they could use nutrition and lifestyle to improve.  They measure over 30 biomarkers and recommend food and supplements to optimize thinks like your energy, cognition, endurance, heart health, and more.
