The only constant in this world is change. I know, super profound of me, however it’s also super true. Verve is no stranger to change. Since it’s change in ownership there have been many additional changes as well. These changes, however, have gone on without Verve’s members knowing about them. Most of them revolve around what happens in the office. Some changes may involve you as athletes, when they do we will make sure to speak with you. 

If you ever have any questions or concerns about any of the new changes occurring at Verve please contact us. Whether in person or via email, Clancy and I are happy to speak with you. Thank you for your patience with us as we settle into our new roles.

Speaking of change, did you know what changes take place in your body when you drink a coke?

In 10 MINUTES
10 teaspoons of SUGAR hit your system. This is 100 percent of our recommended daily intake, and the only reason we don’t throw up as a result of the overwhelming sweetness is because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor.

In 20 MINUTES
Our blood sugar spikes, and our liver responds to the resulting insulin burst by turning massive amounts of sugar into fat.

In 40 MINUTES
Caffeine absorption is complete; our pupils dilate, our blood pressure rises, and our liver dumps MORE sugar into your bloodstream.

In 45 MINUTES
Our body increases dopamine production, which stimulates the pleasure centers of our brain – a physically identical response to that of HEROIN by the way.

In 60 MINUTES
We will start to have a sugar crash. 

AND HERE ARE SOME OTHER SHOCKING FACTS . . .

ONE SODA PER DAY INCREASES OUR RISK OF DIABETES BY 85%!

SUGAR IS ACTUALLY MORE ADDICTIVE THAN COCAINE!

JUST ONE EXTRA CAN OF SODA PER DAY CAN ADD AS MUCH AS 15 POUNDS TO OUR WEIGHT OVER THE COURSE OF A SINGLE YEAR! 

If sodas our a part of our regular diet, maybe now is the time to start taking steps to eliminate them. Start by simply removing one per day for the first week. Then take away two per day for the next week. Small steps are still steps in the right direction.

    Is there any possibility that we could get a microwave (and stash of plastic cutlery) outside of the office? I’m guessing we could even get Noble Savage to fund it. . . .
