Ultimate Gift Guide


Triathletes are simply incredible for how hard they work when training for an event. Hours upon hours of running, cycling and swimming will lead to being massively depleted in nutrients and energy.

Prior to a race you must find a great source of carbohydrates to ensure your glycogen stores are full and ready to be dipped into over a long period of energy sapping racing.

 

To prepare the body for such a gruelling event you should focus upon keeping the body as healthy as possible by trying to maintain joint and muscular health. Using great quality omega 3 fish oils, multivitamins, magnesium and Vitamin C are all key supplements when aiming to maintain a healthy level of vitamins and minerals in the body.


In the lead up to a race a perfect gift idea for a triathlete would be the following supplement package:

 

» Omega 3 Capsules

» Energy Elite + Caffeine (Gels)

» Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids and Rosehip
