By almost any measure, Todd Lodwick is the most accomplished Nordic combined skier in U.S. history — not to mention one of America's most prestigious Winter Olympians.
The country's only six-time Olympian won a silver medal at the 2010 Games in Vancouver, where
he was part of a four-man U.S. team that won the first American medals ever in the tradition-rich sport that combines ski jumping and the heart-thumping endurance of cross-country skiing.
Todd's international career began as a teenager in 1993, and he's competed in more than 162 World Cup events, earning a spot on the podium an unbelievable 28 times. His six World Cup wins include two World Championships in 2009, a year after he came back from a brief retirement from the sport.
Todd is a 19-time U.S. Nordic skiing champion. At the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Todd was chosen by his American teammates to carry the U.S. flag during the opening ceremonies.
Todd, a Steamboat Springs native, is also an avid cyclist and big-game hunter. He has two children. And he loves PowerICE.
"Refueling my body before, during and after my workouts is extremely important as an athlete," Todd says. "Replenishing essential nutrients in the right way at the right time is the key. That's why I love PowerICE."
"I know when grabbing a PowerICE that I'm getting all the right nutrients that will take me to the next level. It cools me down from within and gives me that extra push to do one more rep, one more lap, and one more workout."
"Confidence plays a huge role in success. That's why I trust PowerICE."
Heather Gollnick already was an elite athlete when she attended Valparaiso University on a gymnastics scholarship. But it was a job at General Electric's corporate fitness center and an employee triathlon challenge that unlocked her full potential.
She fell in love with endurance competitions and was soon winning national titles in both duathlon and triathlon. She turned pro in 2002 and burst on the scene with a first-place finish in the inaugural Ironman Wisconsin. Heather went on to win four more Ironman championships and two 70.3 Ironman titles.
Heather and her husband, high school sweetheart Todd Gollnick, have three teenage children. They moved to Steamboat Springs full time in 2013, where she now operates her elite coaching business while also being recruited nationwide as a motivational speaker.
A busy family and career hasn't kept Heather away from competitions. She continues to compete — and win — endurance running races and triathlons around the country. PowerICE plays a crucial role, she says.
"As a professional athlete, I love how PowerICE can aid in my performance and recovery by helping maintain electrolytes," Heather says. "As a mother of three, I love how PowerICE is a tasty, healthy treat for my family with over 100% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C."
