Winning the marathon in a time of 2 hours 31 minutes 32 seconds, a personal best and cramp free marathon for Caleb.
The secret weapon Caleb used was CrampFix, an effective new alternative for cramping used by recreational and professional athletes worldwide.
“I drank one Lemon CrampFix Shot just before the race and had an Espresso CrampFix Shot about the 33km mark. My quads normally start to cramp about the 36km mark so this time I was able to hold on until the end”
Caleb has been using CrampFix for over 12 months to help overcome annoying and disruptive muscle cramps in the pool, on the bike and when running. During long training sessions and on race day.
CrampFix can be used by runners of all levels, not just winners!
CrampFix was developed for professional football players who commonly struggle to stay on the field for an entire game. The players needed a solution and so after 3 years of trialing the CrampFix formula, the brand was launched onto the market so that other athletes could manage their cramps.
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 and 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.

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.
Muscle fatigue combined with overactive NERVE signals cause muscles to CRAMP
Drinking CrampFix® stimulates the sensory nerves in the throat.
A signal is sent through the spinal cord to inhibit the overactive nerve signals.
The overactive nerve signals going from the nerves to the cramping muscle are INTERRUPTED.
The cramp is RAPIDLY RELIEVED OR PREVENTED.
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.
Here is the email he wrote to CrampFix after the event:
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.
CrampFix provides athletes a valuable tool to manage muscle cramps. It works neurologically.
After taking CrampFix the sensory nerves in the throat are activated to send a signal through the spinal cord to control the overactive nerves where the muscles are cramping. It works rapidly to prevent as well as treat muscle cramps.
It is recommended to take CrampFix just 10 minutes before exercise or before expected cramp stage. This will work well to prevent any impending cramps.
If cramp does strike CrampFix can be taken to provide rapid relief, allowing athletes to continue to perform.
CrampFix is an all natural proprietary formula with a specific Ph level and combination of minerals. It is Gluten Free and Vegan.
