I wish to share my story with all the skeptics out there, as I was a skeptic myself.
I recently participated in the 2017 Melbourne Marathon. On the day when I went to pick up the race pack, I saw the CrampFix stand. I had never heard of CrampFix before and honestly, I thought it was just another gimmicky product. I listened to what the the guy had to say about it and left.
Something prompted me to google CrampFix and I read the reviews from previous users. That made me decide that paying $10.00 for a bottle, was like buying an insurance policy. You hope that you never need to use it. As it was a reasonable amount, I bought a bottle.
On the race day, I put the bottle in my belt pocket, thinking that if I was to need to use it, it would be after the 30km mark.
I had a great start and everything appeared to go my way. Except that at about the 3km mark, I started cramping in my right calf (which I had never cramped in before!). I got seriously concerned and slowed down, worrying that I would not be able to finish the race. As I was running more slowly, I managed to put up with the discomfort until about the 12km mark. At that point I used approximately half of the content of the CrampFix bottle, not holding great hopes. It took longer for the effect to take place, than the 30-60 seconds mentioned during the description of the product, a couple of days earlier, but to my surprise, after 1-2km it started working. By the time I passed the 15km point, I was not bothered by the discomfort in the right calf, anymore.
I continued the race and took another sip for good measure, at the 30km mark. The rest, which was about 10ml, I took at about the 37km mark.
I managed to complete the race slightly outside of my goal of under 4.5 hours, but I believe that CrampFix made the difference between completing and not completing the event. This was my first Marathon (at age 53) and without CrampFix, the event could have been a disappointing experience.
Now, I am thinking that for next year’s Melbourne Marathon, I will buy two bottles. I will use some CrampFix before the race (as suggested on the information card), as a preventative measure and I will keep one bottle with me during the race.
“Hi Crampfix, I just completed my 28th Noosa Triathlon, every year for the past 15 years I have had calf cramps when starting the 10k run leg, I bought a bottle of Crampfix at the Noosa Expo the day before the event, During the event I took a swig of Crampfix as soon as I got off the bike, I had no problems with my calf muscles the entire run leg, thanks Crampfix.
“Used Crampfix on the weekend at the Rainbow Beach Trail marathon as instructed and was very happy with the results.
Cramped slightly at the 32k mark and took some Crampfix and didn’t have any further cramps till the end.
After the race while sitting recovering both legs cramped so took another dose and cramps immediately disappeared.
Drove home 2.5hrs in a manual car shortly after that and no cramp problems at all when in past I have often had to pull over.
Thanks so much guys. Next challenge is Surf Coast Century in September.”
“I had this little bottle with me for #GCAM17 and while I didn’t need it (thankfully) I gave a shot to 2 runners in distress and both were back on their way instantly! Amazing! #powerup “
“Hey Guys .. just wanted to say a huge thank you .. I am a huge suffer of cramp – I have tried everything.. you Crampfix is fantastic.. you might remember me from the weekend .. I came past Your booth purchased a bottle and said yes we will see how it goes (the truth- I thought I just wasted another 10 bucks on a cramp product that most likely won’t work ) none the less I added to my run belt just in case .. never try something new on race day is the general rule… anyway came of the bike and the cramps had turned up about 30km to go .. I knew the run would be hell .. off the bike into T2 and I was stuck sitting on the ground both legs locked stiff .. I managed to get my runners on and I limped out on to the run thinking this is going to be a long day .. I ran up the track and stopped at your aid station .. you gave me 2 shots out of a cup separated by some water .. that was it 300 m later I was running – then came lap 2 and we did the same thing.. not my most perfect race but .. without you guys I would not have finished … thanks heaps .. I am your new best friend! Regards Brendan”
I completed the Cairns 70.3 last weekend and just wanted to say thanks and give you some feedback on your awesome product. I’ve suffered from cramping in races in the past and it was the one thing I was worried about in the lead up to this race. But after seeing your product I grabbed some to try in the race and I can honestly say that it works really well. There were times during the race I could feel cramps coming on but CrampFix took that feeling away. Not 1 cramp throughout or after the race – amazing product that I’ll continue to use. Thanks “
“I wanted to thank you for being at the GC marathon last weekend. It was great to discuss your product at the expo.
I have completed 9 marathons, 8 of which I have cramped somewhere late in the race. Much to my pleasure I completed marathon #9 with no cramps. I had a bottle of cramp fix before the start and again at the 38km mark and it is the first time I have not cramped over 42.2km!
I’ll be ordering again soon!
“Amazing, it really works, you guys saved my race #GCAM17″
“You guys definitely saved my race at Port Macquarie Ironman, I was destroyed after swimming and riding my heart out and I was absolutely struggling on the run from the heat and cramps and I was smashing your stuff down and it got me to the finish line when I wanted to pull out after 5k. So thank you!”

“The CrampFix arrived today. Thanks once again for this. It’s making a big difference”
GWS Giants AFL Team Player – Nathan Wilson #16
“Hi, I’m Nathan Wilson from the GIANTS. I’ve suffered from muscle cramping since I was 13 years old. For many years cramping has been a real problem for me affecting my calves and groins, sometimes making it difficult to perform my best in games. For the past three years I have been using CrampFix before the game or at half time to help me prevent and deal with cramps. As a professional athlete, I like products that are easy to use and effective…”
“… CrampFix does the job so I can get on with focusing on what I need to do in a game and not worrying that cramping will affect me.”
