As cyclists, we know that environmental factors such as weather, pollen, and pollution can make it difficult for us to breathe and this can affect our overall performance. As a solution, sports masks have been created to be highly breathable to help us and other athletes breathe with ease when performing outdoor activities like long rides, training sessions, a leisure hike, or a marathon.
Being an athlete requires the right nutrition and supplements to maximize your performance. Sometimes, food and exercise are not enough to reach the athletic productivity you’re aiming for. Supplements become handy at times like these because of the performance boost that they provide.

Who could have imagined that a cycling trainer could simulate cycling so amazingly close to reality? Nowadays, technology has reached a very advanced level, and brands like Elite from Italy are leading the way. For example, look at the top of the range rollers that Elite have invented, fully interactive and is truly something amazing – I refer to “Nero interactive rollers”.
Along with the rigorous training and exercise that are routinely accomplished, athletes must be more health-conscious and pay attention to signs of stress on the body. They heavily invest in their bodies because it is the most important asset for an athlete. Of all the energy drinks and products available, how many actually deliver?
Madison Curzon recently took up triathlon and we thought that she’d benefit from some VOOM power, with their Rapid Recovery Shake. Read her thoughts here.
Triathletes are considered some of the healthiest individuals on the planet. Apart from the constant exercise, most of them are often incredibly conscious about what they eat and their health.
