What's up TEAmigo?!? Welcome to OpTEAmized, the show teaching athletes how tea can optimize longevity, recovery, & performance.

My name is Vince LaPelusa & I am your host on this journey. I am a tea lover, chemical engineer, Brazilian jiu jitsu purple belt, & I am thrilled to be here with you!

Are you an athlete looking to optimize longevity, recovery, & performance naturally & holistically? Do you love your sport & plan to do it for the rest of your life? Do you often feel unmotivated to show up to the gym or practices? Have you tried methods like coffee or preworkouts & feel like they are more of a disservice? Well, I have been there & let me tell you there is a better way.

In this show I will guide us towards teas & herbs that will naturally & sustainably make our athletic journey more enjoyable! From teas that help with sleep, immunity, mental focus, energy, & much more I am here to help you opTEAmize your game!
