What do all these athletes share in common? Yes, they use Mountain Fuel Sports Nutrition but more importantly they all pay for it, there is no sponsored athlete hand out, free product in return for exposure. They share a common theme, they want to perform at their very best and as such are more than happy to pay for it.
Our Sports Jelly is unique, it’s a British innovation and it can help runners of all abilities (and disciplines) around the country not only perform better but for us, equally important is to feel better during their activity. Goodbye sickly gels, it’s time to look forward to what you eat on the run.
The new FeelGoodBars, again are unlike any of the ‘so called’ sports bars. Come on, have you actually tried eating them on the run or in the heat. During reasonable efforts of exercise the current bars/flapjacks either clag up in your mouth, are impossible to swallow or take so long to chew that you’re more exhausted form chewing than actually the activity you’re attempting to undertake! The FeelGoodBar is a calorific, easy to eat bomb of energy that crumbles and melts in your mouth and is very easy on the stomach. No palm oil, no butter, no syrup and no fad ingredients.
We also have tried and tested Nutrition plans on our website which will help you when it comes to discussing nutrition strategies with customers (Sports Nutrition Plans ). While nutrition is a low value item in your shop, advising on a good nutrition strategy will help ensure a better experience for your customers in their races and as such a feel-good factor about the other pieces of kit you’ve sold them.
