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”

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.

Ironman 70.3 Port Macquarie Race Report

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 half way through my final build leading into my first Ironman (Ironman Cairns).

 Swim

Due to it being low-tide we weren’t able do a quick warm up swim. I decided to go for a 5-10 minute run in my wet-suit (bare foot) 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.

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. I was able to find some feet after the first turn-around and settle into a nice rhythm. I was almost a little startled 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

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. I was able to keep 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. I came 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

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 included 4 x strawberry Clif Bloks, a few cups of alternating cola and electrolytes and 3 x CrampFix Sachets.

I had the CrampFix sachet’s at the 8km, 12km and 16km mark.

I 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.

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!”

Nick Hall, Ironman 70.3 Port Macquarie 2017

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.

Meet Jeri Chua – An Inspiration for Runners – CrampFix Singapore Distributor

Jeri’s self description:
“Adventurer, ultrarunner, sports nerd. Constantly testing limits, taking inspiration from my incredible circle of friends and beyond. I’m not afraid to go against the grain, not in an aggressive way, just happy to think outside the box. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I’d like to inspire people, to show that you can achieve what you first perceive as impossible, by having faith, taking a step out of your comfort zone, and learning from things that don’t quite go as planned.”

Jeri recently helped save cramping runners at the Singapore Marathon in December 2017 with CrampFix!

Running a full marathon herself, Jeri and her CrampFix team were also handing our bottles to cramping runners.

“Another Win Thanks To CrampFix – Bendigo Bank Half Marathon”

Jason Sim took won the Bendigo Bank Half Marathon earlier this month “… thanks to CrampFix.”

This was only a few weeks after racing in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.

Jason is a regular user of CrampFix “(At Kona )I battled an injury all day that slowed me down but I didn’t battle Cramps thanks to CrampFix!”

While in Hawaii still, one week after the Ironman Champs, Jason won his Age Group in a 30k running race!! Amazing achievements!

“After I placed 4th outright and won my age group at the 30km running race in Hawaii the week after the Ironman I am contemplating going back for the Honolulu Marathon as I’m confident I can win my age group”.

CrampFix provides athletes a valuable tool to manage muscle cramps. It works neurologically.

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.

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.”
