SLEDS ARE MORE CAPABLE THAN THEY EVER HAVE BEEN & MANIPULATING THE MACHINE TAKES ENDURANCE.

Jack Sarama & Dylan Rose of Boondock Nation have teamed up with POSSIBLE by Standard Process to learn about their body and how to take their sport - backcountry snowmobiling - to the next level.

FOR THE BOONDOCK GUYS, IT’S ABOUT EVOLUTION.

Health and fitness has become an evolutionary process of training for Jack & Dylan and more recently, food has become a part of that plan.


After teaming up with POSSIBLE last year, fueling for the snow took a turn in the right direction - specifically encouraging them to focus on more whole food nutrition.


With the change in fuel from gas station bars to POSSIBLE Snack Bars (their favorite is the Strawberry Beet Almond), Dylan & Jack noticed how they ride start to simplify.


Now as they approach this offseason with a hunger for elevating their physicality, POSSIBLE by Standard Process has suited up.

Backcountry snowmobiling is more than riding flat on a trail - it takes endurance, strength, and elevated athleticism to maneuver the sled. Rolling and pitching the sled through deep snow at 10,000 feet is a skill that can rival any other sport.


Jack & Dylan are dedicated to sharing their abilities and love for backcountry snowmobiling with any and every one, including those looking to elevate their own snowmobiling goals.

“TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT’S GOING ON INSIDE MY BODY WITH SUCH A COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS FROM INTELLIGENT PEOPLE WILL HELP PERFORMANCE AND LONGEVITY.”

POSSIBLE by Standard Process has a research facility dedicated to developing products that are built to fit all whole food needs - but it’s much more than that.


The Nutrition Innovation Center “NIC” located in North Carolina is the home of a first-of-its-kind nutrition science, technology, and research center; this bad boy was built to help impact and change healthcare through nutrition therapy.


As POSSIBLE and Boondock approached this new season, we wanted to help Jack & Dylan’s journey grow by offering an opportunity to complete an athlete study test* to learn more about how their bodies perform and function in a more in-depth way.

FOR DYLAN, EVERY DAY IS ABOUT TO BE LEG DAY.

“I’ve got some serious room to grow my leg strength…there’s definitely a lot of leg strength that you do in snowmobiling.”


When Dylan hopped on board with this testing opportunity, he was excited to learn more because he didn’t have a baseline understanding of his body. As he’s truly started looking at his overall training for the past year and started pursuing to be a more health-conscious person, knowing how his body works will help him level up.

“I’M 27 YEARS OLD, SO I’M AT A PEAK AGE FOR PHYSICAL POTENTIAL, AND I’M HUNGRY WITHIN MY SPORT.”

THE GOAL? HOLDING THE LINES FOR LONGER, STRONGER, AND TO BE MORE PRECISE.

Approaching this offseason training is going to look a little different for Dylan after learning his test results. While he has always been more of a runner for his cardio, he’s looking to change it up to improve his VO2 Max - which can support when Dylan’s riding at high elevation - up to 10,000 feet at times.


“Cardiovascular training is something that you can see such good growth in…and I didn’t necessarily feel like that was a place I was challenged in.”


The intensity of wrestling the deep snow, exerting all of his energy to get unstuck is a lot. Dylan’s looking to focus on his endurance - riding longer throughout each day.

JACK IS TURNING THIS OFFSEASON ON.

“[This offseason] is gonna require some specific training that I don’t think I’ve really embraced before.”


When we asked Jack what his reaction to this testing opportunity was, he felt this was a dream come true to learn about what’s going on inside his body. To be able to learn what’s happening now so comprehensively will take his performance up a notch.

“TO BE ABLE TO SUMMARIZE THIS [PAST] SEASON AND HEAD INTO THE OFFSEASON WITH A DIRECT OBJECTIVE IN MIND IS GOING TO BE SUPER HELPFUL.”

THE GOAL? BETTER GRIPS, BETTER BREATHS, BETTER RIDES.

As a lover of the heavy weights, Jack’s no stranger to the gym - which has proven helpful with throwing the snowmobile around the deep snow. But he’s looking to diversify his training this offseason to elevate his performance.


While Jack will continue to focus on cardio - even adding swimming to his off road cycling - he’s looking to find ways to improve his grip strength. The strength in your hands alone on upwards of 200 horsepower snowmobiles is just one of the strengths needed to navigate the depths of the mountains.


Being back at sea level can challenge replicating the intensity of the high elevation, but Jack is ready and able to try.

POSSIBLE HAS NOW ENTERED THE CHAT.

When Boondock Nation was looking for better support to take on the mountains, POSSIBLE products stepped up to fill the gaps.


Nutrition and proper fueling on the mountain is key to surviving the challenge of the snowmobile and with POSSIBLE, you don’t have any reservations. The product line is true, actual whole food nutrition with no junk, no guessing, and no lies - literal transparency.


It’s typical for the riders to grab the first bar they find at a gas station to throw into their bag for fuel throughout the day - but when they crash, it’s not in the way you’d think.


So many bars are full of artificial ingredients and nonsense claims that cause your body to slow down after your artificial boost. When you’re performing at peak levels in peak mountains, you deserve nutrition that supports your body and mind to keep going for one more ride.

“I LOVE KNOWING WHERE MY FOOD COMES FROM.”

“SO MANY PRODUCTS IN THE POSSIBLE LINE FIT THE BILL AND ALLOW ME TO REACH GOALS EVERY DAY WITH PROPER NUTRITION.”

POSSIBLE by Standard Process is supporting Jack and Dylan through both the offseason and snow season this year during their 10th year as Boondock Nation with the right food, right fuel for the right goals.

THEY’RE JUST NORMAL DUDES, LOOKING TO SHOW THE WORLD THEIR SPORT.

Backcountry snowmobiling is extremely physical, and it takes physical athletes to perform - Boondock Nation is looking to show that to the world.


When we asked the guys how they hope to feel after training both physically and using POSSIBLE products and Standard Process supplements, they gave the same response…

“LIKE SUPERMAN.”
