We asked Olympian Colleen Quigley, a pro steeplechaser and Vital Athlete, to share how she fuels her workouts ahead of the upcoming U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Track and Field. Get the scoop on her training, nutrition and (of course) her favorite ways to incorporate Vital Proteins® collagen into her daily wellness routine. Then check back on Lively for more insight into Quigley's workouts, mantras and more!
I love how many different products Vital Proteins has to offer. There are so many easy ways to incorporate collagen throughout my day. I would say I probably consume at least two servings of collagen per day, sometimes three or four.
Pro tip: Check out our Collagen Calculator™ to see how much daily collagen we recommend you consume.
I start with Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer®first thing in the morning.
Then after my workout, I shake up Vital Performance™ RECOVER in my shaker bottle when I'm driving home from practice.
In the afternoon, I often do a Hydration**+ Collagen packet while I’m working on emails or doing interviews.
At the end of the day, I love making a hot Vital Performance™ SLEEP drink while I'm laying in bed reading and winding down.
Recently, I made some homemade gummies using the Vital Proteins® Beef Gelatin and had SO much fun with that. I was surprised how easy it was. All you need is juice, a sweetener and Beef Gelatin.
