Nutrition & Hydration

Nutrition

Good nutrition is an important part of every healthy lifestyle.  Food is fuel, and as runners and walkers, we need to make sure we replace the nutrients our bodies lose when we're active.  For anyone needing energy on-the-go, we carry a variety of products by GU, Hammer Nutrition, Sport Beans by Jelly Belly, as well as Huma Gel, Honey Stinger, Nuun, Gatorade and more.

Gels

GU Energy Gel: Simple to take, simple to digest, GU Energy Gel's carbohydrate blend delivers high-quality, easily-digested and long-lasting energy for athletes in every sport and at all levels. The world’s first energy gel is still one the most efficient sports fuel available today.
GU Roctane: Gu Roctane is similar to GU but has more in it for those longer workouts.  Roctane has the same stuff as GU but adds in  histidine, an essential amino acid, to act as a buffer and slow the energy-sapping acid build-up in muscles.  The addition of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, valine and isoleucine to serve as another fuel source, aid in recovery and help maintain mental focus and reduce fatigue.

Huma: This brand prides themselves on the most natural of ingredients, so you get great-tasting, performance-enhancing, and energy sustaining all in one natural product. Huma gels come in a wide range of flavors and are quickly becoming a customer favorite, particularly for those that find most gels on the market too harsh fro their system.

Chews

GU Chomps: GU Chomps deliver the premium ingredients and performance benefits you've come to expect from  GU Energy products: Amino acids for added focus, potent energy and speedy recovery. Also includes the mighty antioxidants, Vitamin C and E, which combat tissue breakdown. GU Chomps include sodium and potassium to restore electrolyte balance, and an exclusive blend of complex and simple carbohydrates.
Sport Beans: First-of-its-kind new jelly bean product from the makers of Jelly Belly! They have been specially formulated to fuel and replenish your body during exercise. A single pack of Sport Beans carbohydrates to fuel your body during intense exercise, and a balanced supply of electrolytes. 

Powders

HEEDHEED's complex carbohydrate formula allows you to obtain the ideal amount of calories you need, providing a more consistent and longer lasting energy supply.  HEED also provides a complete, easily assimilated electrolyte profile—not just salt and potassium, which comprise the electrolyte "profile" of most other drinks.
Endurox R4: Following exercise it’s important to refuel your body. Endurox RX is a recovery sports drink with a 4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein. Endurox helps you recover faster by replenishing muscle glycogen levels 128% more than a carbohydrate drink. It also helps reduce post-exercise muscle damage and extend your endurance in a subsequent workout.
Perpetuem: Going out on a multi-hour event?  Perpetuem provides consistent, reliable energy through complex carbohydrates and soy protien, maximizes stored fat utilization, and buffers lactic acid to prevent muscle fatigue.
RecoveriteRecoverite supplies your body with the proper 3:1 ratio of complex carbohydrates and the highest quality whey protein isolate, along with generous amounts of multi-beneficial glutamine.  The result is rapid and enhanced recovery, which allows you to obtain the maximum value from all your hard workouts, ideally prepping your body for your next workout or race. 

Hydration

No need to get dehydrated in the summer by using water alone. We carry electrolyte replacement from nuun and Gatorade Endurance.  How should you carry your hydration product? We have an extensive collection of hydration hardware, from Nathan hand-held bottles to belts by Nathan and Amphipod.

Nuun: nuun is a portable electrolyte replacement drink at only three calories/tab - without the sugar. Just drop a nuun in your water bottle, store the tube in your pocket & you’re ready to go. It’s used by runners, walkers, triathletes, cyclists, hikers, yoga-bods and travelers around the world.
Gatorade G Series Pro 02Endurance athletes lose electrolytes and burn carbohydrates when they perform at high levels. Endurance formula is a special blend designed to ensure proper fluid balance and energy levels during extended bouts of exercise.
