THE T:ZERO BLOG
Free advice, content and media for all. It's our way of giving back to the tri community who have given so much to us. Enjoy!
It gives us great joy to announce that from 2019 through to 2021, T:Zero’s major sponsors will be Ener-C SPORT (a new player on the electrolyte market) and our long term partner Zen Sport Spray.
The partnership will see the T:zero athletes have a much greater access to these exceptional products as well as incredible giveaways, competitions and providing support for a T:Zero ambassador program (more on that soon!)
We asked Head Coach Richard Thompson about what both brands mean to him in the context of using both products extensively in preparation and racing the Ultraman World Championship last year:
I started using ENER-C Sport in the final few months of training for the 2018 Ultraman World Championships. My experience with other electrolyte supplements in the past had been less than enjoyable. Whether it was the high level of sugar, artificial ingredients or simply the taste – the other products have not put me in the best possible position to achieve excellence whilst training and racing. ENER-C Sport was everything I needed. All natural, low sugar and a taste that you could never get tired of, it ticked all the boxes. On top of that, and importantly, it is packed full of all the necessary electrolytes and minerals to ensure I was rehydrated and supported the best way possible. We relied heavily on ENER-C Sport through the three days of racing in Hawaii too and it was because of ENER-C Sport that not once did I cramp or have any gut or dehydration issues! To take on something as massive as the Ultraman World Championships, in an environment like Hawaii where you are running a double marathon on the final day, alongside lava fields in 35 degree heat, you need to ensure that across the board you have the very best products on the market.
ZEN SPORT SPRAY
The Ultraman World Championships is the pinnacle of ultra-endurance triathlon. Regardless of your condition, and without your consent, it will rip you apart and show you exactly who you really are. Training for such an event is not easy. Every day you are continually pushing yourself to see how much you can endure without breaking, without picking up an injury along the way. In the past I have been guilty of only turning to the use of liniments when I became injured. For this campaign I turned to Zen Sports Spray as part of my daily routine. I would use it before and after training sessions as well as giving it to my masseuse to use during all massages. It was because of Zen Sport Spray that I was able to handle so much more training than I had first thought possible.
