From the streets of Michigan to the championship stage of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
How this 20 year old athlete turned things around…
We’d like to introduce you to our newest sponsored athlete Kodi Dick, a 20 year old Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighter, who trains under Ronaldo Candido at ATOS Michigan (https://www.rcabjj.com/) located in Novi Michigan.
At a young age Kodi came to the decision that he needed to learn self-defense, having grown up around violence, abuse, bad influences, and being constantly surrounded by people and things completely inconsistent with the goals he had for himself.
Thanks to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and his incredible mentor Ronaldo Candido he was able to change his life in many ways. Through Jiu-Jitsu he gained more confidence, courage, mental strength, discipline and focus.
Aside from the inward growth, he now has the skills to defend himself and others responsibly. In fact, not too long ago, he was involved in an altercation where he was confronted by a much larger individual with a knife. It was literally life or death at that moment and I was able to use his training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu to defend himself. And he’s still standing here today to tell his story and help others.
His journey started one day when his mother came home with a business card for a local Brazilian jiu-jitsu club. He was intrigued and went all-in. Within 3 weeks he was competing at his first competition and never looked back. Since then, he has exploded into the competition scene taking any and every fight that he can, taking home countless trophies and awards. He is determined that he WILL be a World Champion.
Kodi believes whole-heartedly that none of this would be possible without his inspiring team and coach who not only taught him the martial arts skills and the fact that there is no "I" in team, he also introduced him to BodyHealth and he amazing product PerfectAmino.
PerfectAmino has become an integral component in his training, development and recovery. Prior to taking PerfectAmino, Kodi was constantly tired & fatigued, struggling with recovery and was always sore. Since finding PerfectAmino he says that his energy is “Level-10” and he can fight all day with no soreness “as if I never stepped on that mat. It's unbelievable”.
Kodi told us that the first time he used PerfectAmino, he fought at 100% for six ten-minute rounds with only 2 minute rest in between, which he stats is INSANE!
We are very happy to have Kodi standing behind our product and we can't wait to see where this journey takes him, all the while standing behind him with as much support as we can provide.

If you search for “energy supplement” on amazon, you get over 4,000 results.
How can any reasonable human sift through all that and find the ones that work? Or which ones are bogus?
I did a deep dive into the truth about “increasing your energy” in another article. It gives you a framework for understanding how real energy supplements work and why.
But here I want to do something different.
I want to get practical and tactical with 10 proven ways to boost energy production in your cellular energy factories –– your mitochondria.
We’ll start with the lifestyle and dietary ways to boost your mitochondria and then look at a few powerful supplements.
Let’s start with the cheapest...
Your average health food store has an entire section devoted to “energy.”
The products on the shelf, with their fancy logos and specially designed packaging, make grandiose claims about what they will do for your “energy levels.”
But the truth?
Most of them are stimulants in disguise, artificially jacking you up to give you the sensation of energy.
But in the end, they do more harm than good. They increase cortisol, cause dehydration, and deplete you.
Because almost none of them do anything on the biological level that supports your real energy system: your mitochondria and metabolism.
That’s why in this article I want to show you what to look for with any new supplement.... and why.
It’s the “most wonderful time of the year” according to Andy Williams. Or should it be the most wonderFULL time of the year? I’m referring to the last 6 weeks of the year which is fraught with one nutritional landmine after another.
Let’s face it, things like pumpkin pie, stovetop stuffing, eggnog, pumpkin-spiced lattes, peanut brittle, homemade fudge, and divinity only make their appearance during this brief window so we might as well gorge ourselves with as much as we can, right?
No wonder the average American gains 2 to 5 pounds (or more) over the holidays. You’d think we were part bear by eating all…the…things before going into several months of hibernation. Unfortunately, this is a major reason people gradually gain weight over the course of years and decades. Gaining weight is easy while losing it is another story.
