The start of a new year is an exciting time for organizing race calendars and goals for the upcoming 12 months ahead. Here at Nuun Headquarters, we’ve got some lofty goals and exciting events on our 2018 line up.
Our “top picks” bucket list is a reflection of our resolutions this year: Travel more, Inspire Others and Keep Muuving!

When is the last time you tried something brand new?
At Nuun HQ, we are kicking off 2018 with a different type of resolution. We call it: The Nuubie Challenge. We’re challenging ourselves and others to get out of our comfort zones and try a NEW activity each week of January.
Zumba, Rowing, Mountain Biking. These are just a few activities on our Nuubie lists here at HQ…but the list goes on.
This January, we’re inviting YOU to step up to the challenge as well!
At Nuun, we believe that moving more + proper hydration are catalysts to help you thrive through life. Although this may sound obvious, our actions in society are counter to these fundamentals and as a result, making us unhealthier.
Think about the headwinds we face everyday when it comes to movement alone. We live in a box (our home). We likely drive in a box (automobile) to work and sit in a box (office), only to stare at a box (computer and cell). Then we repeat the drive home back to our box and sit and stare at a box (TV/computer). Most people live a sedentary lifestyle, indoors, for 20+ hours every single day.
This Black Friday, Nuun is encouraging our team to counter society’s sedentary lifestyle and pause on our shopping indulgence by opting outside. Our friends at REI started this movement a couple of years ago by closing their doors on one of the biggest shopping days of the year. The intent was to give up on shopping for the day and just get outside. Think of it as healing for our body and our planet. Let’s be real, we all know that it is pretty difficult to get outside without moving.
Here are 5 reasons to opt outside this Thanksgiving weekend:
As we head into winter months, many athletes across the country are faced with less than ideal conditions for running and cycling outdoors. Colder temperatures, icy roads and shorter/darker days are a few of the reasons why athletes use the winter months to retreat to indoor training. While the treadmill and trainer are often met with a bit of dread and resistance, we’ve collected a number of ways to keep motivation high and workouts interesting as the miles shift indoors this winter.Read More
