sports nutrition

If you ever see me on course, guaranteed I’ll have crampfix on me!

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.

Cheers!

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.

CrampFix® offers athletes FAST, RELIABLE & EFFECTIVE Cramp Management.

Ideal for any athlete and currently being used with success by professional AFL, Rugby Union, NRL, Ironman & Cyclists.

Perfect for triathletes, marathon runners, ironman, kayakers cyclists, rugby, basketball, soccer, hockey, weight lifters, cross fit, surfers, tennis, basically anybody who cramps from strenuous exercise.

Also works for outdoor workers, gardeners, builders and people suffering night cramps.

How does CrampFix® work?

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.

  • A concentrated proprietary blend, only small doses are required.
  • Ideal for athletes following strict nutrition plans.
  • Sweet & sour, ‘Ice Lemon’ flavour
  • Small 50ml plastic bottle

“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”

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.

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

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

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.
