This week I’m joined by the cofounders of Kimera Koffee, Theo Armenteros and Frankie Pimentel, along with Chris Algieri, former WBO World Boxing Champion, ISKA+WKA World Kickboxing Champion, and performance nutrition coach / clinical nutritionist.
In this episode, Frankie and Theo tell us about the differences between the Dominican Republic and the U.S., and Chris shares the best spots to check out in New York. We talk about how they came up with the name Kimera Koffee, why Kimera Koffee is different from other coffee brands, and why the source of coffee is so important. We discuss the problems with traditional pre-workouts, the power of nootropics, and the benefits of the different nootropics in Kimera’s coffee.
We also talk about how Chris found boxing and why he loves it so much, the intense mental aspect of the sport, and what happened when he broke his orbital bone. We talk about the common misconceptions when it comes to boxing, how Chris found Kimera Koffee, and what his experience has been like as an ambassador.
We also discuss Kimera’s marketing strategy, the power of Instagram, what they look for in ambassadors, and how Instagram has changed recently. We talk about the guys’ favorite ways to workout, the issues of overtraining and undereating, and how to get out of that cycle. We discuss fasting, the ketogenic diet, the importance of protein, and the effects of high protein diets. We also talk about what it’s like building a brand with friends and how to balance work with friendships.
You can grab Kimera Koffee and other Kimera products at www.kimerakoffee.com, and be sure to follow the guys on Instagram (@kimerakoffee). You can find Chris on Instagram (@chris_algieri) and at http://www.chrisalgieri.com, which is where you will also find The Fighter Physique.
