Q & A with Caleb Noble – Professional Triathlete & Ironman

Caleb Noble Noosa Triathlon Winner

Starting triathletes at the age of 15, Caleb Noble has found himself competing professionally around the world by the age of 24. For a few years he has been competing in elite ITU races and has only just started racing professionally in Ironman and Ironman 70.3 events.  Caleb has been an avid user and ambassador of CrampFix for almost 18 months and has since recently won the Runaway Noosa Marathon and had the opportunity to race in Challenge Almere in Amsterdam.

How did your triathlete journey begin?

C:  I grew up in a small country town (Ganmain) close to Wagga Wagga NSW and grew up around Aussie rules. I found triathlons when I was 15 doing the NSW all schools triathlon and from there moved onto ITU racing and then onto long course triathlons.

What does your training schedule look like?

C: I try to train for roughly 20-25 hours on a good week. On a bad week, maybe a little bit less depending on how much time I have. I try to do as much as I can, but I also work full time landscaping so I try to find the right balance.

What does your diet consist of before, during and after a race?

C:  I make sure I get my carbs in pre race and make sure I’m very well hydrated.

During the race I’m just trying to focus on getting my electrolytes and carbs in to sustain me for the duration of the race.

Post race I have a few drinks with mates and a good meal.

How do you use CrampFix in training and for an event?

C: I use CrampFix throughout my training pretty often. I make sure I’m taking it every hour and keep on top of it so no cramps come on.

What races do you have coming up this year?

C:  I’ll be racing the Noosa Triathlon up next in November. Then I will race Ironman 70.3 Western Sydney in November and I haven’t planned December yet.

What was your biggest learning curve?

C: Learning to adapt to the training load leading into a big event and to really rest and freshen up in taper week.

What is your greatest piece of advice?

C:  Train smart, not hard. You are better to go into a run slightly underdone then to over do it and burn out and over train.

It’s Never Too Late to Join the Running Game! Interview with Andrew Chau – Marathon Runner

Here at CrampFix, we want to inspire you with some of our amazing ambassadors in a new series of interviews to delve deeper into their sports and personal experiences. We hope that you will be able to learn something new or to connect with like minded people and to grow the CrampFix community!

Andrew Chau Marathon Runner

Andrew Chau @and_he_runs

The first running race that mattered to Andrew Chau was the Half Marathon in 2016. He had completed other fun runs like the Mother’s Day Classic earlier, but he had never dedicated 4 months of training to a specific event. After the Half Marathon, he completed the Blackmores Sydney Marathon that same year.

Since then, he has completed 8 Half Marathons, 7 Marathons, and 3 Trail Races, including the 45km Six Foot Track Marathon. Andrew has also completed a couple dozen shorter distance races that were less than the half marathon like City 2 Surf and the Sydney Harbour 10km.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

A: I’m late to the running game. I’ve never considered myself as a runner and I never imagined myself to run 30km most Sundays and race 4 marathons a year. I grew up as a swimmer, then became a cyclist, a skier, and now a runner.

I pass the time between my running by working full-time as a Landscape Architect, designing playgrounds and parks at Waverley Council. One of my current projects in construction are the fitness stations along the Coastal Walk between Tamarama Beach and Marks Park.

I have a Wife and two fur-children, a Kelpie and a Staffador, they keep us busy and occasionally join us on runs.

How did your running journey begin?

A: Before 2016 I’ve always avoided running – the most running I would do would be the occasional sprint for the train or tram. My sister for the previous decade would always try and entice me to run a marathon, and my response was always the same – they invented bikes for a reason.

In 2016, I finally folded, with my partner (now wife) hopping on the running advocacy band wagon, we all signed up for the Gold Coast Asics Half Marathon. I used the Asics online training plan to get me started, because I had no idea of how to train properly for longer distances. Even after completing the first Half and gearing up for the Blackmores Sydney Marathon, I still believed I was only running to keep myself ski fit over summer.

What races do you have coming up this year?

A: I’m working towards my ‘A’ race, Melbourne Marathon. I bombed out my other race earlier in the year so this will hopefully be the redeemer. Following that I was lucky enough to secure an entry into the New York City Marathon, it will be my first World Major marathon. These races are only 4 weeks apart, so it will be interesting to see how my body holds up.

What is your motivation for running

A: I run because I want to know what my best can be. I also run to support other people achieve their goals and realise their potential – a fair few of the races I’ve completed have been as an official pacer, running down the finish chute and pushing others to finish strong is an amazing feeling, especially when those people go beyond what they had believed they were capable.

What does your training schedule look like?

A:  I integrate a lot of run commutes into my schedule, it kills two birds with one stone, I get to work, and I get my run done, in basically the same time it might take to catch a train. A normal week consists of 90 – 100km of running, made up of two interval sessions, a tempo session, a midweek long run 20km, a 10km tempo and parkrun on Saturday, and Sunday long run 30-35km. On top of this there would be at least one gym session, lots of foam rolling, and about 60-75km of bike commuting.

Do you have any rituals that you swear by before you compete in a race? If so, what?

A: I don’t have any weird rituals, no lucky charms, just a bagel with peanut butter, jam, and a banana, washed down with a coffee, double shot long black from my freshly ground Sample coffee.

Before racing a marathon, I like to get in 2-3km warm-up with some speed build up – before my PB marathon in Sydney last year, I ran almost 4km. Before my 10km PB, I ran 17km!

What was your favourite course/event you have ever done?

A: Adidas Paris 10km. The atmosphere was absolutely amazing! It is the biggest 10km event in France where you sign-up and represent a neighbourhood, you have whole cheer squads for a particular neighbourhood and the noise when you run past is next level! Ale Ale Ale! ODEON! BASTILLE! ODEON! Not only were the crowds amazing, imaging running full speed towards the Eiffel Tower!

What was your biggest learning curve?

A: Train slow to get fast. It isn’t always the best to train hard all the time. Your body needs to time to recover, and the gains from a quality workout will only occur if your body learns to adapt during that recovery. Training hard all the time just causes your body to fatigue, break down, and heighten the risk of injury.

What is your greatest piece of advice

A: Forget about times, race because you want to be there, race because you want the experience. If you’re constantly chasing times you lose focus of why you are there and you place extra pressure and stress on yourself to perform. You will lose the love of running.

The Best 5 Tips to Prepare for a Marathon

With the last few marathons coming up before the end of year and all the time and effort you have put in to your training, you should do everything you can to prepare for your marathon and maximise your race. Here are five tips to make sure you are ready for your big race.

via https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/664210645020832706/

Let your Body Rest

Be kind to your body and listen to what it needs; after all, it’s the only thing that will get you over the finish line. Have a rest day before your race and don’t push yourself. If you feel like you need to do some sort of exercise the day before a race, stick to a very slow, short jog or a small walk to stretch your legs. You could even use this as an excuse to treat yourself and to get a relaxing massage! You have trained so hard for this event and having one day off will not impact your fitness.

Make sure you also get plenty of sleep in the lead up to the event. Depriving your body from sleep will not give it the time it needs to recover, leaving you feeling fatigued and unfocused. Fortunately, if you didn’t manage to get the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep the night before, the adrenaline usually overrides your symptoms and has shown that it is unlikely to effect your performance.

Increase your Carb Intake

To help prepare your body for a marathon, you should start to increase your daily carbohydrate intake a few days before your event. Eating complex carbs whilst you’re training for a marathon will increase your glycogen supply, which will assist you to improve your performance on the day of the race.

Try not to go to overboard with carbs the night before though, you don’t want your body to feel sluggish overeating food that it’s not used to. Eating a well balanced diet and slowly increasing your carbs is key so that it is not a big shock to the body. Make sure you stick to what you know and what makes you feel good.

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated can’t be stressed enough in the lead up to a marathon! Make sure to drink plenty of water a few days before the big event, especially the day before to prepare for your marathon. Try not to drink excessively though, you just want to stay well-hydrated so you can just top up in the morning before the race.

Get Organised

Write a list of everything you need and lay it all out ticking it off as you go. Make sure to lay out what you’re wearing; socks, shoes, sunscreen, Vaseline or specialised cream to prevent any rubbing or chafing, and anything else you think is important. Don’t forget to bring your shots of CrampFix to avoid cramping on the day!

Organising everything before your event will reduce the stress of loosing or not being able to find something in the morning. Try to avoid using anything new such as new running shoes or food just in case it makes you uncomfortable and puts you off your game.

Race Day

The day you have been training so hard for has finally arrived! It is ideal to have breakfast 2-3 hours before a race so your body has had enough time to digest and absorb the nutrients and energy. Have a meal that is high in carbs to keep you energised and keep protein, fat, and fibre consumption low. Top up with water before your race to stay hydrated.

Keep your warm-up short. Get your blood pumping and your body ready to run at race pace, but don’t use all of your energy before the race has begun. Believe in yourself and trust your training and try not to get caught up in everyone else’s goals. Focus on your own goal and pace yourself.

Finally, have fun and remember why you are here and why you love running!

Causes of Muscle Cramps and How To Get Rid of Them

Potential Causes of Muscle Cramps

What causes muscle cramps and how to get rid of them?

Unfortunately, not too many people can answer this! But we can offer a few insights and theories:

Fatigue

You rarely see cramps at the start of a game or race. However, it is common to see athletes cramp at the end which leads us to believe that fatigue is a likely contributor.

Dehydration & Electrolyte Imbalance

For many years some researchers have long suggested dehydration and electrolyte imbalance (such as decreased salt content) as a cause. But recent reviews have downplayed this theory, as the evidence is mostly observational. This means while there may be an association between dehydration, salt depletion, and cramps, we can’t prove one caused the other.

In these studies, people who were prone to cramps did NOT have differences in hydration or electrolyte content compared to people who were not prone to cramps!

Furthermore, all the muscles in the body would cramp if electrolyte imbalance was implicated. Cramping is usually experienced in actively used muscles.

Salt tablets and magnesium have been commonly used for cramps, but because electrolyte imbalance and dehydration don’t appear to be the cause, their usefulness is debatable.

Other Causes of Muscle Cramps

Other causes of muscle cramps include side effects from some medications, diet or perhaps have a family history of cramping.

Lack of strength and conditioning may also play a role in exercise-related muscle cramps.

How to Get Rid of Muscle Cramps

Science is now proving there is a fast way of getting rid of muscle cramps

The latest science in relation to getting rid of muscle cramps relates more to a neurological connection. Particularly in terms of rapid relief during activity. Studies conducted with professional rugby players have shown that despite hydration, strength, conditioning & nutrition being monitored, cramping can often still occur. Hence the effectiveness of using a product that stimulates a neural response.  Products like CrampFix are able to quickly activate sensory nerves in the mouth, triggering the overactive nerve signals to release the cramp – quickly.

Swallowing and digesting is not required! Cramps disappear just by swirling the liquid around the mouth and discarding it! This is how to get rid of cramps quick enough to stay in the game.

Cyclists commonly suffer muscle cramps.

Calf Cramps While Running “Guaranteed I’ll have CrampFix on me!

Calf cramps while running are a horrendous experience! “If you ever see me on course, guaranteed I’ll have CrampFix on me!

Calf cramps when running

Calf cramps are a horrendous experience! Andrew Chau

“I’m thrilled to have been selected to join the CrampFix team of Ambassadors, and look forward to spreading the word of a cramp free race!

My story with CrampFix started at the Gold Coast Marathon expo, where I dropped by the stand and chatted to Jan about the product. It was a day before the race, so I decided I wouldn’t experiment with anything new.

Needless to say, I cramped really bad the next day, the return to the finish from Runaway Bay was a horrendous experience, dropping over a minute in pace due to crippling cramps in my calves.


I bought my first CrampFix Shot at the City2Surf expo – I didn’t need it for the shorter distance race, but took the opportunity to stock up for the Sydney Marathon. I had a good chat to Jan again, and told him about my Gold Coast experience, the next marathon was not going to be a repeat.

Sydney Marathon came around pretty soon after, and I was ready. I had been training well, had experimented with nutrition and felt prepared – I also had a couple shots of CrampFix, just in case. Those shots were consumed in the back half of the race, they allowed me to power through without debilitating cramps. I finished with a PB time of 2:57:31 joining the sub3 club.


Since Sydney Marathon I haven’t raced without a CrampFix tucked away with my gels. Stromlo lightning 30km – one CrampFix, top 10 finisher, no cramps.

Six Foot Track Marathon – two CrampFix, 4:18:38 finish, no cramps.
If you ever see me on course, guaranteed I’ll have CrampFix on me.

Cheers!

Andrew”

What is CrampFix®

It’s A Breakthrough In Cramp Management!

CrampFix® is a new formulated supplementary sports food especially developed to help high performing athletes achieve their performance goals.

How does CrampFix® help calf cramps while running?

FIX CRAMPS BEFORE THEY START – FIX THE NERVE (NOT THE MUSCLE)

CrampFi®x treats muscle cramps through the neuro-muscular system.

Instead of treating the cramping muscle itself as most commonly done, CrampFix® treats the OVERACTIVE NERVES that are causing the muscles to cramp.

CrampFix® works rapidly when cramp strikes and also helps to prevent cramps.

Just minutes after taking CrampFix® muscle cramps anywhere in the body are rapidly released.

CrampFix® helps athletes TAKE CONTROL of muscle cramps. Rapidly.

HOW IT WORKS:

Muscle fatigue combined with overactive NERVE signals cause muscles to CRAMP

THEN

Drinking CrampFix® stimulates the sensory nerves in the throat.

THEN

A signal is sent through the spinal cord to inhibit the overactive nerve signals.

THEN

The overactive nerve signals going from the nerves to the cramping muscle are INTERRUPTED.

AND

The cramp is RAPIDLY RELIEVED OR PREVENTED.

THE CRAMPFIX® FORMULA

CrampFix® contains all natural ingredients including vinegar, salt, sugar, water, natural lemon flavour, magnesium, potassium, calcium.

This proprietary formula has just the right blend of astringency, pH and mineral content to provide rapid relief.

Triathlon Leg Cramps CrampFix “Be it training or racing, I’m happy they work for me!”

If you’re wanting to use CrampFix in your next triathlon but aren’t sure just how to … read this race report by Ironman Triathlete & Ultraman Kristin Trappitt.

“For the Ironman 70.3 Geelong I took an Espresso CrampFix pre swimming as I can get quad and calf cramps during the swim. Not on Sunday thankfully!.

On the ride I had a Raspberry CrampFix at 20km and again at 65km. These help me as I have tight calves and it helps me stay looser into the run.

This was a tough run, especially with the warming conditions. A Lemon CrampFix at the end of Lap 1 of the run and NO CRAMPING issues at all during the day!

I continue to enjoy the benefits of CrampFix with all my extended days. Be it training or racing and I’m happy they work for me”

Oh, cramp!

A muscle cramp can stop you in your tracks–but with science on your side, you can fix it fast.

Your Facebook post about a midrace muscle cramp now has 32 unsolicited comments: Eat bananas! Salt tablets! Mustard! While the peanut gallery means well, the advice they’re dishing out may just be nuts. In fact, even experts can’t say with certainty what causes exercised-induced muscle cramps.

“Scientists have theories, but it’s hard to do research on cramps because they’re unpredictable and spontaneous,” says Kevin C. Miller, Ph.D., an associate professor of athletic training at Central Michigan University and devoted cramp researcher. In fact, one of Miller’s early career tasks was to devise a humane way to induce cramps. (The process he came up with involves electro currents and students’ big toes. He swears it’s not too painful.)

But even in a lab, multiple variables can be at play when a cramp occurs. “When I exercise, I lose sodium, I become dehydrated, and I become fatigued,” Miller says. “The problem is all those things are happening at the same time, which makes it difficult to say definitively what’s responsible.”

What experts do know is that many common treatments have been proven ineffective. Which means it’s time to rethink your treatment regimen. 

Cramp Culprits
Experts weigh in on two common theories.

Dehydration and Electrolyte Loss: The best-known theory is also the one with the least amount of scientific support. Timothy Noakes, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc., a renowned exercise scientist from the University of Cape Town, calls the studies that link cramps to sodium loss and dehydration “bogus science.” In 2004, he studied the electrolyte levels of 43 ultramarathoners. Blood tests after a race showed no significant differences in blood sodium or magnesium concentrations between those who had and hadn’t cramped.

There were also no differences in body weight, plasma volume, or blood volume between the two groups, showing that dehydration had no real effect. Miller agrees: If dehydration alone could cause a muscle cramp, he theorizes that you could seize up in saunas or hot tubs, or even just walking around on hot days.

Muscle Fatigue: Dehydration, however, could expedite muscle fatigue, and that is what Miller believes is a likely cause of cramps. In that ultramarathoner study, 100 percent of the runners who cramped did so in either the last half of or right after the race. Anecdotally, this theory holds up: Most people who cramp seem to be covering longer distances; cramps seem more common at mile 20 of a marathon than, say, mile two of a 5K.

Additionally, speedier runners seem to be at higher risk. Two 2011 studies found that fast-paced ultramarathoners and triathletes had more cramps than their slower counterparts.

Preventive Steps
Here are the best strategies for avoiding spasms.

Run Long: Guarding against muscle fatigue is key, so don’t take any shortcuts in training. “Train more, do longer distances,” says Dr. Noakes, a former ultramarathoner. “You have to adapt to the distance you want to race.”

Strength Train:  Miller recommends plyometrics (check out this article for an explosive plyometric workout)—explosive exercises that may improve the endurance of the receptors that are thought to misfire and cause cramps.

Pace Properly: If you trained logging 10-minute miles and you start racing 8:45-minute miles, your muscles won’t be prepared for that effort, and you’ll risk cramping, Miller says.

Keep Track: Miller thinks cramps are often caused by the perfect confluence of factors. “If you tend to cramp up at 20 miles, write that down,” he says. “Then write down the conditions: Was it hot? Was it humid? How much did you drink? What was your nutrition like the night before? Were you acclimated to the heat?” Track patterns over time, and you may be able to figure out exactly what makes you cramp.

Or – why not try a CrampFix QuickFix Shot until you figure things out?! even carry one with you for emergencies! You never know what can happen out there right?

One CrampFix Shot will get rid of any cramps in about a minute, so you can be back in the race. You can even stay in the race by using the product preventively. Consume it before the race or before the sticky stage and get through without cramping! Race cramp free.

What causes cramping?

This insightful article explains how hydration cannot be the issue:

“One of the most common reasons for failure in the marathon is suffering from muscle cramping. As many seasoned marathon veterans know, these muscle cramps can be one of most frustrating reasons for a poor performance. Typically, when you suffer from a cramp, everything else is going pretty well. The pace feels easy, you’ve got plenty of energy, and a new PR seems almost inevitable. Then bang! Your calf cramps and it takes everything you have just to crawl to the finish.

As we’ve been taught to do from the billions of dollars funneled into the sports drink market every year, most runners blame a lack of fluid or electrolyte intake for their untimely cramp. So, for their next marathon they work on drinking more often.

Unfortunately, as many marathoners know, this rarely solves the problem. It seems no matter how often we drink or how precisely we try to optimize our electrolyte levels, the same darn calf cramp returns late in the race.

This is because your marathon cramping isn’t likely a hydration or electrolyte issue at all. Rather, the problem is what we call a “muscle overloading” or a fatigue cramp. This occurs when the neural mechanisms that are supposed to inhibit muscle contraction are depressed and the chemical and electrical synapses that fire the muscle fibres are enhanced. The result is an intense, sustained involuntary muscle contraction”.

*How to beat marathon muscle cramps by Jeff Gaudette / October 24, 2018

Products such as CrampFix are able to interrupt these enhanced electrical synapses that are firing the muscle fibres. CrampFix was developed with professional Rugby players who commonly suffer cramps during a game. After three years of trialling the formula it was concluded that it can be used at the time of cramp AND/OR prior to getting a cramp. After drinking or swirling the product the response is almost immediate due to the neurological activation.

Studies by Dr Kevin Miller were considered as a basis for the idea of treating cramps in this way. Dr Miller conducted several studies where athletes were induced electrically with cramp after which they were fed varying formulas. Despite not being able to find out why athletes cramp, he was able to link successful treatment to consumption of low ph formulas.

If you are worried about the dreaded cramp, why not give CrampFix a try? It’s being used around the world by professional and recreational athletes across many different sports. Stay Brave, Stay Strong, Stay Focused, Stay Cramp Free!!

CrampFix is available in multi use Fliptop lid bottles and single shot sachets.

Indian Cricket’s Pujara Drinks CrampFix To Relieve Muscle Cramps!

Drink CrampFix for rapid relief and/or for prevention of painful muscle cramps!

Note – you don’t drink CrampFix for it’s taste!!

https://www.instagram.com/p/BrKEGK8BoSM/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet

We met with the Indian Cricket physio in November 2018, just after the team’s arrival in Australia. They were very pleased to be presented with a product that specifically targets cramping. Cramping in some players has been an on going issue for the team and can impact on their results. When cramp strikes their top players at key moments in the game it can mean the difference whether or not a player can stay on the field. Potentially a difference between winning or losing a game.

CrampFix was developed with professional football players here in Australia. We make all products in our own HACCP manufacturing facility in Burleigh Heads, Queensland.

Every batch is tested for banned substances for athletes’ assurance and is Informed Sport accredited. For more information about the testing please click www.informedsport.

CrampFix is all natural, vegan and packed in portable, easy to use packs.

CrampFix Shots, as used by Pujara and the Indian Cricket Team are 20ml single shot sachet packs. Available in 3 flavours Lemon, Raspberry & Espresso. Simply tear open half way and drink! No mixing required.

Also available in 50ml multi-serve squeeze bottles. Simply flip the lid open and drink when required. Easy!

Yes, the taste IS strong! salty and vinegary! the first time using is the worst. You can get used to it and it makes a refreshing pallet cleanser after using sweet sticky energy gels.

“CrampFix Is Actually Making A Huge Difference Stopping Cramps”

Zac Langdon, Giants AFL Player

“I started experiencing cramps when I was about 14-15 years old. Since then I had tried multiple things such as magnesium, salts and was constantly told I must not be hydrated enough. I tried for years and made a conscious effort to drink water and hydrolytes but still struggled with cramps. Cramps generally affect me late in game mostly in the last quarter and CrampFix is actually making a huge difference. I take it as soon as I feel a cramp coming on or get fatigued and it seems to postpone/get rid of the cramping all together”. – Zac Langdon (GIANTS AFL Player)

Cramping in an Ironman 70.3 Race

Many triathletes experience painful and annoying cramping in an Ironman 70.3 race. Commonly, not long after the second transition. Or, some triathletes get cramps during the swim or bike leg.

It’s also common for triathletes to experience cramps during all of their races or just some of their races! Everybody is different! Cramping can occur during any of the Ironman 70.3 race stages.

That is why having a ‘get out of jail card’ can be useful. When a cramp strikes it can be hard to get rid of quickly. So carrying a cramp specific product that you know will work fast can be a very wise decision!

What about using Salt Tablets?

Traditionally triathletes have used salt tablets to help keep cramps away. This is very much old school. By the time the salt tablet makes it’s way through your digestive system you’ve already lost the race! Science is now telling us the fastest and safest way to get rid of muscle cramps is by activating sensory nerves in the mouth. This triggers a very quick reaction to get the overactive nerve signals under control and release the cramp. If you can activate the sensory nerves, the cramp will be gone much quicker.

Following a strict nutritional plan is also a wise option. There are tons of wonderful hydration and energy products on the market and as long as you have trained with these you could get through your race without experiencing any cramps.

The reality is though that some people will still cramp. There are just so many variables that can throw any race plan off course. Maybe the weather is warmer, more humid or perhaps your energy levels are not as you anticipated.

If you have never raced an Ironman 70.3 and are after some tips, read this detailed Race Report by Ash Hunter, Ironman World Champ qualifier. Cramping has always been a huge concern for Ash during an Ironman 70.3 and full Ironman race. Ash commonly experiences bad quad cramps during the bike leg.

Ironman 70.3 Port Macquarie Race Report, by Ash Hunter

I was a little unsure about how the body would be feeling going into this race, considering I was halfway through my final build leading into my first Ironman (Ironman Cairns).

 Warm Up Swim

Due to it being low-tide we weren’t able to do a quick warm-up swim so I decided to go for a 5-10 minute run in my wet-suit (barefoot) including an upper-body dynamic warm-up halfway.

In hindsight, it wasn’t the best idea to go for a run without shoes because my feet went numb and I wore the material between my thighs on my wetsuit… oops! I felt warm and ready to go after this so I’m glad I did it.

While lining up in zone 1 ready for the rolling start to get to me, Pete Murray was doing an awesome job at pumping the crowd up, for some reason, it made me reflect on the journey over the past 6 months on my comeback from surgery with a fractured collarbone.

The competitor next to me said something like, “This is the worst part of the day, I just can’t wait to start.” I could barely reply as I was all choked up with emotion thinking about the journey to get to the start line.

Swim Leg

OK it was GO time, the line was moving quite quickly and I only had a dozen people in front of me. All of a sudden, I was emotionless and only focusing on the task at hand.

Thinking about my swim plan with the words of my coach running through my head from our phone call the previous night. I managed to follow my plan throughout the swim focusing on a couple of aspects of my technique which I tend to forget when I’m under pressure and was able to find some feet after the first turn-around and settle into a nice rhythm. Soon enough I was at the northern turn-around point when I could hear cheering… on a swim course! Shout out to the people who were out on their yachts giving support.

With about 300m left I could hear the voice of Ironman as well as the wonderful Pete Murray’s voice getting louder. As I was running up the ramp I could see Korupt Vision laying on the ground in his wet-suit doing what he does best, I managed a quick “Hi Glen!” while running past placing my goggles on top of my forehead.

 

Bike Leg

The BEST part of the day! I looked down at my watch and realised I came out of the swim with a PB! This gave me a boost of confidence as I knew that I wouldn’t have lost too much time to the girls up ahead. Keeping within the present moment by consistently thinking about my present power, rpm, position on the bike and getting nutrition/hydration in. I find focusing on these few things helped me stay within the moment.

My nutrition on the bike included two bottles each with 2 x CLIF Shot Gels + 1 x Nuun tablet. One bottle with Razz Raspberry CLIF Shot Gel and the other with Lemon Lime CLIF Shot Gel.

I had 1 x CrampFix sachet at the 65km mark for prevention purposes and sodium intake.

Even though I found this ride extremely bumpy and hard to stay super aero all the time, I seriously couldn’t stop smiling the entire ride and was just SO happy to be out there. Racing into T2 with my power plan on point I also learned that I was 5th female overall and first in my age group posting the second fastest female bike split of the day. I scoffed down 3 x strawberry Clif Bloks and got out of T2 as fast as I could with a huge smile on my face.

 

 Run Leg

I seriously had zero expectations for my run considering the block of training we were in. My goal was to run a faster time for the first lap than my second lap. A male age grouper “Deano” and I left T2 together, he seemed to be running at a very consistent pace so I asked kindly if he didn’t mind if I sat behind him, offering him any Clif Bloks or CrampFix if he needed it. At the 8km mark he let me know he was going to start to slow down now and wished me all the best with the rest of the run. Thanks for the company Deano!

I was able to keep a consistent pace throughout the first lap and then dropped the pace back roughly 10 sec per km for the second lap. I didn’t have any issues on the run until I got to the 17km mark where I could hear my stomach slugging up and down due to drinking too much water which gave me a stitch in my stomach. It took me about 1km to breathe it out, finally I could pick up the pace again for the final few kilometers.

My Nutrition Over the Run Course

4 x strawberry Clif Bloks,

a few cups of alternating cola and electrolytes

3 x CrampFix Sachets:

I had the CrampFix sachet’s at the 8km, 12km and 16km mark, rinsed them down with water but in hindsight I think using only cola to wash it down would have worked better than drinking both water and cola.

It was great to trial CrampFix as a preventative in a race situation and a replacement to salt tablets.
One sachet of CrampFix has roughly the same amount of sodium as one salt tablet.

A massive shout out to another male age grouper “Dave Walsh” who pushed me along for the final 1km (which turned out to be 1.5km… we got more than we bargained for searching for that finish line feeling). I love that there is a comradery like spirit out on race day, even though this is an individual sport. 

I was over the moon to be able to place 1st in the female 25-29 AG and third female amateur overall.

My splits for the day: Swim – 00:30:19  Bike – 02:36:350  Run – 1:38:430  Overall time – 4:49:29.

 

 A massive thank you to the following for all your support leading into this race: CrampFixT:zero Multisport and my amazing coach Richard Thompson, my swim coach – Lisa Spink, Team Clif Bar Australia, Unique Health Products , 17 Hours Tri Clothing and Di’s Fitness & Massage.

Back to work for me for the final build leading into my first Ironman! See you all at Cairns.

I Was Genuinely Amazed At The Results! No Cramps!

Simone Brick, Salomon/Suunto Run Team recently wrote to us:

“Hi!

I just wanted to message to say thank you so much for creating this product, and

I am loving the new sachets that make it easy to carry for races.

I am an endurance runner that is relatively new to the sport and have just recently started competing in Mountain Running. My first event was the Warburton Trail Fest in Victoria, which was 22k with 1300m of elevation gain and loss.

There were two points in the race where I was on the verge of cramping so badly (calves on the way up, quads on the way down) and normally would have, but tried your product for the first time and was genuinely amazed at the results in not only in stopping cramping but also improving my overall alertness.

That day I managed to secure a win by 10 minutes and a spot on the Salomon/Suunto Australian running team, and CrampFix was definitely part of that!.

In my most recent event two weeks ago, I ran the Australian Mountain Running Championships and again used CrampFix to stop my calves from cramping, and again managed to secure a win and Automatic selection to compete for Australia at the World Mountain Running Championships in September.

For sure CrampFix will now be part of my regular racing and training routine for Ultra Trail Aus and World Mountains! 🙂

Thank you so much again, the results of us athletes wouldn’t be possible with awesome products such as yours. If you are ever looking for brand ambassadors or the like, I would love the opportunity to help build up awareness of the product in the running/endurance community.

Keep being awesome 😀
Cheers,
Simone Brick

Leg Cramps In Ironman CrampFix Can Save Your Race

Ironman athletes can suffer terrible leg cramps during racing and training.

“CrampFix really was a lifesaver, you put a hell of a lot of training hours into those types of events as you know, so it was a massive relief to find a product on course that literally fixed the problem in a minute or so, and enabled me to complete the event.

Port Macquarie 70.3 last year was my first long course triathlon. I felt like $1million bucks coming off the bike, and

 

within the first km of the run I was struck with my first EVER leg cramp.

 

I honestly thought my day was over, I had no idea how I would run another 20k.

Then I was lucky enough to find CrampFix at the next aid station, and it literally saved my event.

I went on to achieve my 70.3 goal.

One year later, I am attempting my first Ironman, and

I won’t think of starting without a CrampFix sachet in my belt!”

No Worrying About Muscle Cramping Thanks To CrampFix!

“Haleiwa Triathlon, age group win and 4th overall.

No worrying about cramping thanks to CrampFix!”

Congratulations to Jason Sim on his recent Age Group WIN in Hawaii at the Haleiwa Triathlon!!!

AND 4th Overall

 

Jason used CrampFix for the first time in 2017 “… and didn’t look back!”

“I just want to say a huge ‘thank you!’ I flew over to China last week to roll the dice for a spot for Kona at the Qujing 70.3. With the massive obstacle of altitude and heat given I’m training in winter (Bendigo, Vic) I knew cramp would be an issue.

I used Crampfix throughout the event and didn’t look back!

I have no doubt if it wasn’t for CrampFix not only would I have not made the podium I wouldn’t have qualified for Kona!

Crampfix will definitely be part of my Kona race.

I recommend Crampfix to a lot of athletes I met, so don’t be surprised to see a few more orders from Germany and South Africa to name a few”.

Kind Regards,

Jason Sim

“I always Keep A CrampFix Sachet or Bottle On Me”

 

The First Time Using CrampFix
by Ash Hunter, Ironman 70.3 Triathlete

Ever since starting triathlon in 2015 I’ve experienced muscle cramps in almost every race, usually on the run and was finding I’d start to cramp on the bike in a half Ironman too.

While walking through the Cairns Ironman Expo in 2017, I came across CrampFix and asked how their product works, what athletes have used it before and what have the athletes said about it. After having a chat to Jan and Michelle, the owners, I decided to buy a couple of bottles. I don’t usually like to try new things on race day but thought I’d just have it there as an “in case of emergency” situation.

I carried a bottle in my bento box on the bike and put the other one in my back race suit pocket when I got into Transition 2 for the run.

I ended up having a mouthful on the bike around the 60km mark when I could feel the very start of a muscle cramp going on. The cramps stayed at bay until 12km on the run when I could feel another one about to start so I had another mouthful and the cramps disappeared again.

CrampFix saved my race and I ended up with a 15 minute personal best time over the Ironman 70.3 distance and 3rd in the Female 25-29 Age Group.

I always keep a CrampFix sachet or bottle on me for training and racing now and haven’t looked back.

CrampFix – A Story For All The Skeptics Out There

Cristian Homoc, Age 53, First Full Marathon at the Melbourne Marathon.

Here is the email he wrote to CrampFix after the event:

“Hello,

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.

Thanks guys”

Cristian Homoc

No Calf Cramps Thanks To CrampFix at the Noosa Triathlon 2017

Lucky for John Dixon, CrampFix were at the Sports & Lifestyle Expo at the Noosa Triahtlon on the weekend!

John has completed the Noosa Triathlon an amazing 28 times!! The last 15 times John suffered from terrible calf cramps in the run leg which probably led him to drop by the CrampFix stand at the Expo just the day before the event.

John was advised by CrampFix to keep a bottle in his transition kit and to take approximately 10 to 20ml before heading off on his run with the aim of preventing cramps from coming on. To his pleasant surprise, John did not experience any calf cramps at all on the run leg!

This is the email CrampFix received from John, 2 days after the Noosa Triathlon.

“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.”

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions – How to Fix Muscle Cramps using CrampFix

What is in CrampFix™?

CrampFix™ is a supplementary sports food that includes a proprietary formula which helps high performing sports people to achieve their performance goals.

The all natural, vegan formula has a specific blend of astringency and pH level that provides reliable and rapid relief from muscle cramps by quenching neuro muscular fatigue.

Ingredients: water, vinegar, sugar, salt, potassium, calcium, magnesium & natural flavour.

Why does CrampFix™ have a strong taste?

One of the ingredients is acetate (vinegar) which has a very strong and dominating taste. Most athletes do get used to the taste after using the product a few times.

How is CrampFix™ different from other muscle cramp products?

CrampFix™ treats cramps rapidly through the nervous system, rather than by treating the actual muscle itself. The unique CrampFix™ formula acts as a sensory stimulant in the mouth and throat to send a signal to the spinal cord to block overactive nerve signals which are causing a muscle to cramp or spasm.

How do I know it does not contain any substances prohibited by ASADA or WADA?

The CrampFix™ formula has been tested for banned substances by LGC Laboratory in the United Kingdom. The testing program used is the Informed Sports banned substance test. If you require the results we are more than happy to provide these to you.

How does CrampFix™ work?

CrampFix™ works rapidly to fix and prevent muscle cramps by targeting the overactive nerves that are causing the muscles to cramp. We don’t know exactly what causes muscle cramps but we know how to fix them! There is an association between premature muscle fatigue, exercise induced muscle cramp, stimulation of sensory nerves and interruption of alpha neutron (nerves) firing.

A mouth-to-nerve-to muscle connection.

How safe is CrampFix™?

CrampFix™ is safe to use without affecting athletic performance, as long as consumption instructions are followed. Refer to label for instructions.

What is a safe amount you can consume?

You can safely consume at least 100ml per day.

How much do you need to consume?

To prevent cramps consume 10-20ml, approx 10 minutes before activity.

To rapidly relieve cramps consume 15-20ml when cramp strikes or at first signs of cramp.

What is the scientific evidence behind it?

There are several key studies supporting the effect. Dr. Kevin Miller of Central Michigan University has conducted research supporting the beneficial effects of acetate and ‘pickle juice’. The first clinical trial was conducted on electrically induced muscle cramps (EIMC) which convincingly proved that ‘pickle juice’ successfully and rapidly reduces EIMC when compared with water as a placebo.

CrampFix™ is a highly effective formula that took three years to develop specifically for professional athletes.

When should I drink CrampFix™?

Drink 10-15 minutes before activity to prevent cramps.

Drink when cramp strikes or at first signs of cramp for rapid relief. If cramp is not relieved after 60 seconds, repeat dose.

Should I drink it all at once?

Drink just 10-15ml to prevent cramps. Not the whole 50ml bottle at once. Keep the rest of the bottle for a later stage or after activity to assist recovery.

Can I keep an open bottle of CrampFix and how should I store it?

Simply screw the lid back on and keep it until you need to use it again. Due to the low pH level, CrampFix™ can be safely stored as long as the lid remains on and no foreign particles fall into the bottle. Check the Best Before date on the bottle.

Where can I buy CrampFix™?

Buy CrampFix™ online at www.crampfix.com.au or at selected stores throughout Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Korea.

Who makes CrampFix™?

CrampFix is made by Cramp Fix Pty Ltd at the Queensland, Australian based manufacturing facility.

How do I use Crampfix®?

Simply unscrew the tamper-evident lid and drink or swirl and spit 10 to 20ml in your mouth.

Is Crampfix® safe to use?

Crampfix® is made in Australia from all natural food sources and electrolyte minerals. It is not intended to replace water, carbohydrate or electrolyte supplements; rather improve the way these necessities are utilised during moderate and high intensity exercise. Please use as directed on pack.

What does Crampfix® taste like?

Crampfix® has a strong, tangy lemon flavour which some people may find quite overpowering initially. Keep a bottle of cold water handy to drink afterwards.

What is a muscle cramp?

A muscle cramp is a sudden and involuntary or contraction of one or more of your muscles. These contractions or spasms are painful and can occur in various muscles. The muscle or muscles gets tight and does not relax. CrampFix™ can help relax these tight, contracting muscles.

What causes muscle cramps?

Cramps are commonly caused by overuse of a muscle, dehydration, muscle strain or simply holding a position for a prolonged period. In many cases, however, the cause isn’t known. Some people cramp frequently, some never cramp at all.

Breakthrough Cramp Management

CrampFix® is a new formulated supplementary sports food especially developed to help athletes to achieve their performance goals.

CrampFix® provides the impetus athletes need to increase drive performance.

FIX CRAMPS BEFORE THEY START

Fix the NERVE (NOT the muscle)

CrampFix® treats muscle cramps through the neuro-muscular system.

Instead of treating the cramping muscle itself as most commonly done, CrampFix® treats the overactive NERVES.

Just minutes after taking CrampFix®, muscle cramps anywhere in the body are rapidly released.

CrampFix helps athletes TAKE CONTROL of muscle cramps. Rapidly.

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Muscle fatigue combined with overactive nerve signals cause muscles to cramp.
  2. Drinking CrampFix® stimulates sensory nerves in the throat.
  3. A signal is sent through the spinal cord to inhibit the overactive nerve signals.
  4. The overactive signals going from the nerves to the cramping muscle are interrupted.
  5. The CRAMP IS RELIEVED or PREVENTED.

THE CRAMPFIX® FORMULA

CrampFix® contains all natural ingredients including vinegar, salt, sugar, water, natural lemon flavour, magnesium, potassium & calcium.

This proprietary formula has just the right blend of astringency, pH and mineral content that provides rapid and reliable relief.

GLUTEN FREE, VEGAN, WADA/ASADA COMPLIANT, ALL NATURAL

MADE IN AUSTRALIA

HOW TO USE CRAMPFIX®

  • Drink 10ml (2caps), 5-10 minutes BEFORE exercise to prevent muscle cramps.
  • Drink 15-20ml at FIRST SIGNS of cramping for rapid relief.
  • Drink 10ml AFTER exercise to prevent post exercise muscle cramps.

Note – 1 Bottle = 50ml

The First Time I Have NOT Cramped Over 42.2km!

CHRIS – 9 Time Marathon Runner – Gold Coast Marathon  2017

Hi Jan,

I wanted to thank you for being at the GC marathon last weekend. It was great to discuss your product at the expo and then see it on course.

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 (from you – thanks) and it is the first time I have not cramped over 42.2km!

As per my call yesterday happy for you to use my comments.

I’ll be ordering again soon!

Thanks again and all the best with the business.

Cheers
Chris

Targeting Nerves to Treat Muscle Cramps Shows Promise Over Hydration and Electrolytes

The sports medicine community and athletes often contribute exercise related muscle cramping to dehydration or an imbalance of electrolytes. However, in an astonishing study performed by a professor of sports medicine and the director of Ironman South Africa in 1997, the conclusion was drawn that exercise-associated muscle cramping due to dehydration or electrolyte imbalances is a misconception. [1] This conclusion was drawn after the director followed 1300 runners during the competition.

The Science Behind Why Electrolytes and Hydration Don’t Help Muscle Cramps

Electrolytes and hydration must make their way through the bloodstream in order to have an effect on muscle cramps. This process takes much too long to provide relief. In fact, it takes one hour for electrolytes,[2] 30 minutes for bananas, [3] and five minutes for water. [4] For athletes, this amount of time can hinder performance due to the lack of relief of their muscular cramps.

But what about using these methods to prevent cramps rather than using them to stop cramps once they start? Even as a preventative, these measures are still not an effective choice. Researchers performed sweat testing of laborers in shipyards and mines 100 years ago. What was found was that the sweat contained high levels of chloride, which makes up half of the salt content in your sweat. This resulted in leading scientists to believe that it was the absence of this electrolyte causing muscles to malfunction rather than dehydration. [5]

Neuromuscular Fatigue and Muscle Cramps

The reason behind why electrolytes and hydration has little to no effect has to do with the neuromuscular fatigue theory. This theory believes that the issue is not with the muscles; it has to do with the nerves that control the muscles. Furthermore, the theory states:

●       Muscle contractions are initiated by a nerve, referred to as the alpha motor neuron.

●       This neuron receives messages from your brain, known as conscious movements, and also from your spinal reflexes (unconscious movements).

●       Spinal reflexes stop muscles from stretching or loading in excess.

●       Neuromuscular fatigue causes an elevation in firing from the reflexes that protect against stretching, which results in excessive muscle contractions (cramps).

Treating Cramps Through Nerve Targeting

If you’ve ever experienced a brain freeze from drinking or eating something cold, you know it’s uncomfortable. This reaction is caused by the nerves in the mouth and esophagus being topically stimulated. CrampFix uses a unique blend of ingredients which targets these nerve receptors in a person’s mouth and throat, which provides near immediate relief to your body’s neurological response. In addition, since CrampFix does not go through the bloodstream, the product relieves muscle cramps and also prevents them within 60 seconds of taking it.

CRAMPFIX HAVE ABSOLUTELY NAILED THE PRODUCT!

Alex Price recently competed at the Ironman OZ in Port Macquarie. Along with competing Ironman events himself, Alex is also an AIS Elite Triahtlon Physiotherapist, and a Triathlon/Running Coach.

Alex had the opportunity to use CrampFix® at Ironman Oz and is planning on keeping it in his nutrition kit leading into Ironman Busselton, WA later this year.

“Excited to start a partnership with the team at @crampfix! I have suffered with cramps on and off, especially during long days out and in Ironman’s and have always made my own pickle juice ‘brew’ to combat this. However these guys have absolutely nailed the product, as many athletes found out when they tested it out at Port Mac IM! And, it’s Australian made and owned!

Looking forward to having them in my corner working towards Busso this year.”

Do you know what ‘Randonneuring’ is?

Meet Jong Ha Park! He is part of Korea Randonneurs, and is the most well known within the community.

According to Wikipedia:

Randonneuring (also known as Audax in the UK, Australia and Brazil) is a long-distance cycling sport with its origins in audax cycling. In randonneuring, riders attempt courses of 200 km or more, passing through predetermined “controls” (checkpoints) every few tens of kilometres. Riders aim to complete the course within specified time limits, and receive equal recognition regardless of their finishing order. Riders may travel in groups or alone as they wish, and are expected to be self-sufficient between controls. A randonneuring event is called a randonnée or brevet, and a rider who has completed a 200 km event is called a randonneur.[1] [2] The international governing body for randonneuring is Audax Club Parisien (ACP), which works with other randonneuring organisations worldwide through Les Randonneurs Mondiaux (RM). Randonneuring is popular in France, and has a following in the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, United States, Canada, Brazil and India.

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randonneuring)

There are more than 10,000 registered “Randonneurs” in Korea, and upon introducing them to Crampfix, it is the best item they have tried so far.

CrampFix – “man it lives up to the name!”

“You won’t be disappointed!” – Suki Bloom, 2017  Gatorade Triathlon Series Champion 25-29 yrs.

“I’ve found that since starting a liquid only race nutrition plan, I suffer from cramping and tight muscles more frequently than I used to. UNTIL NOW! I was fortunate enough to try a little product called @crampfix and man it lives up to the name.

I’ve been using it preventatively rather than when things start to go pear shaped (a small dose every 30-60 minutes) and not only have I had ZERO cramping but I’ve found my muscles can stay a lot more relaxed for a longer period.

It looks like the team at CrampFix will be at @IMCairns (expo and running aid station). So if you’re looking for a new cramp ease product, or want to give it a go, get in touch with the team, PM me, or visit the stall at the expo!

You won’t be disappointed!”

Suki Bloom is currently training for her first Ironman event in Cairns on 11th June 2017. After commencing triathlon in 2016, her credentials to date include:

  • 2nd Age Champ 25-29yrs at the Tweed Enduro 2017
  • Age Champion 25-29yrs Gatorade Tri Series (3 x Gold, 2 x Silver, 1 x Bronze)
  • Bronze in Queensland Tri Series
  • Duathlon World Qualifier 2016

“It’s genuinely a great product! People just want something that works :)”

Rapid Cramp Relief & Prevention Drink for Athletes

Did you know that contrary to popular relief, hydration and electrolytes on their own can’t always prevent or relieve muscle cramps?

For athletes, muscle cramping and fatigue can severely impede performance, which is why husband & wife team Jan and Michelle set out to develop a remedy in 2015 after hearing about the effects that acetate or vinegar can have on cramps.

The remedy they developed is CrampFix; an all natural, concentrated formula that works rapidly through the nervous system to stop the overacting nerves that are causing muscles to cramp. While using acetate or vinegar to manage muscle cramps isn’t an idea that’s often heard about in the mainstream media, Jan and Michelle decided to look further into it after hearing about particular research from the USA that mentioned American Footballers were having some success managing muscle cramps with these ingredients.

Ironically, Jan and Michelle were familiar with acetate given that it was often used in their condiments factory. Given familiarity with the ingredients & through further research, they decided that CrampFix would initially focus on providing cramp relief to rugby players in Australia.

In the initial trial, the Western Force rugby union team used the early version of the product and it showed great success. Following the trial with the Western Force, CrampFix started to be used by the GWS Giants AFL, the Cronulla Sharks and the Melbourne Rebels. Once it was proven that the product does indeed work effectively, the next step was looking at how CrampFix could be marketed. At this time it was apparent that with the target audience being athletes that suffer from muscle cramps, developing a sports supplement drink would be the best course of action.

With a background in food manufacturing, including ice cream and condiments, and with a broad range of business skills that include marketing, product development, finance management and accounting, Jan and Michelle felt confident they had the key skills that are needed to launch this new business venture. They continuously draw from their experience and they are dedicated to making CrampFix a name known throughout the entire athletic community.

CrampFix works by stimulating the sensory nerves in the throat, which then sends further signals to the nerves. Much of the research regarding acetate/vinegar and how they play a role in preventing and relieving muscle cramps is still not widely known. There is definitely skepticism out there but once athletes try CrampFix, they seem to be hooked on the undeniable results!
