New Sponsor!

February 3, 2009

storeIt is with a grateful heart that I welcome my newest personal sponsor: PureSport. PureSport is a workout and recovery drink supplement manufacturer. They are based right here out of Austin, TX and sponsor a handful of Olympic athletes including Michael Phelps and Nastia Luikin. Much of the research and development for their drinks occurred at my alma mater UT Austin with well-known kinesiologist Dr. John Ivy. To me, this makes their generosity even more meaningful. I was first exposed to Puresport after a mountain bike ride with fellow teammate Thommy Cho last year. He let me try some of his grape recovery drink and I was instantly hooked. I had never drank a recovery drink that went down so easy. I was expecting a very whey-proteiny, chalky taste and texture, but what I got was more like a yummy grape soda! The main thing that sets PureSport’s formula apart from other’s is the carb to protein ratio (and really the use of protein in the first place). Go to their site to read more about the science behind it, but basically, the past few weeks I’ve been preaching about the Caveman diet-increasing protein and decreasing carbohydrates. These guys get it, and provide me with a drink that will sustain me longer, stronger, and help me recover faster after the effort. Not to mention all four flavors taste great! Their products are very competitively priced with Hammer, Endurox, Cytomax, and all those other brands on the market, so if you are spending the money up front for those, you at least owe it to yourself to give these guys a try. Support a Texas company and see greater performance gains doing it! Go to their site to find a retailer close to you.

    I will second the admiration for Pure Sport. Congratulations for having the support of such a great company. I am a die hard Hammer Products person and have been for about 3 years but when I first got a sip of Pure Sport, my first thought was that it couldnt be a recovery drink and if it actually was, it had to be loaded with all types of bad things- I was completely wrong and went out about a week later to by a tub. I cant wait to taste some of their other products soon.
