Promixx Review

If you’re into your sports these days then chances are you’re using some kind of supplement. A good chance it would be powder based, and added to water/milk/or juice of some kind. Traditionally you would drop your powder into water/milk/juice in a shaker and, well, shake! Giving you a lumpy grainy substance to struggle to

What is Safesport ID?

For the last few weeks I’ve been sporting a rubber band on my left wrist, this isn’t my attempt to return to my teenage years, nor a show of support for the latest fashionable charity. No, this is the SafeSport ID, and as the name suggest it’s a bracelet that offers you safety by storing

High5 EnergySource Drink Review

Sometimes, when we’re on a hard trip we might just need a bit more calories during the day. That’s the idea behind the High5 EnergySource Drinks. It’s available in Citrus, Orange, Summer Fruits and Tropical Samba as either 12x 50g sachets or a serious 2.2 KG bottle. While this 47g sachet provides an impressive 180cals

Bargain Turbo Trainer

While the long winter nights may be coming to an end, I’d found myself doing a few hours a week on an old exercise bike that I found propping up a load of clothing in the spare room. While getting out into the fresh air is always the best option, I’m no road cyclist, and the local cycle tracks

SIS GO Isotonic Energy Gel Review

SiS GO Isotonic Gel is designed to be taken without water, to provide an energy boost during any intensive activity. They’re available in three flavours; Orange, Tropical and Blackcurrant.. The Orange variety tastes just like orange jelly, which for me is good, but it isn’t an overpowering taste. While many other gels I’ve tried are

Maxifuel Viper Active Sport Gel

The Maxifuel ViperActive energy gel is designed to keep you energised on those long runs or cycles. It’s available in only two flavours, Lemon and Lime and Mixed Berry. The mixed berry flavour doesn’t taste as expected! It has a tart, youghurty flavour which unpleasant at first, only as it was unexpected. The tartness is rather refreshing,

PowerBar Sports Gel Review

The PowerBar Sports Gel provides energy for those longer runs or cycles, and is available in five flavours; Blackcurrant, Apple, Lemon Lime, Tropical Fruit and Vanilla I tried the Lemon and Lime flavour, and it really was a shock to the palate! It was extremely citrusy, as expected, but after the initial shock I realised

Gu Energy Gel Review

Gu are better known for their puddings than sports nutrition (at least to me they are), and what I do know is that their puddings are some of the best pre-packaged sweets known to man. With such a tasty pedigree, I had high expectations as well as plentiful drool even before trying them out. Apparently,
