The following includes a few testimonials in different sporting codes

Testimonials - Athletics
Gary Jones, athletics aged 31 My sport is athletics and my event is the 100/200 Meters. I have a personal best of 10.60 and 21.57 respectively. I started taking Herbalife products in July 2003. Like a lot of athletics sportsmen who take Herbalife the results were pretty quick and I knew something positive was happening to my body. I had taken various sports supplements over the years and like a lot of athletes would follow the latest ‗fad‘ supplement or company that everybody was talking about! However, none of these supplements could have been much good as I would never take them for very long as any positive results gained would be counter-acted by a negative response, like water retention, feeling bloated, cramping, weight gain etc. Then there was the cloudy shadow that you could fail a drugs test as some products were getting cross-contaminated with illegal substances. I regrettably saw a friend of mind and a high level British Olympic athlete fall into this trap and the overall re-percussions were devastating. However, I wasn‘t prepared to think all supplements were bad as I knew in order to compete at a high level, good nutritional supplements were here to stay. You just had to do your research and make an educated decision based on the facts. I started to look at other alternatives and I found herbal life. I like the way Herbalife focused on nutrition - nutrition of athletes and it all made such perfect common sense and was simple to follow. Herbal life were also able to provide the quality assurance required. I initially took Formula 1 with the additional protein powder, plus F2, 3 and Thermo Beverage. I took Schizandra (Joint Support) and RoseOx for recovery and Herbalifeline for my heart/CV system and joints and Cell Activator which was like the insurance policy to ensure I was absorbing all the good nutrition . Initially, my training partners were sceptical thinking anything with herbs was a bit lightweight! Sportsmen/women do tend to think they know it all when it comes to sports nutrition but the fact is many only know as much as the normal average person in the street! However , it was not long before my performances on the track had improved with actually less training!. I had lost some body fat and yet maintained all my lean muscle mass. My power to weight ratio, very important in sprinting, had improved as I was lighter but actually stronger in the gym. Suddenly people were saying I looked healthy, which seemed strange for an athlete who trained 6 x per week. Was I not healthy before then I was thinking ? It was not before long and people in my circle of influence were just asking me how they got hold of the products! After the athletic season finished, I completed an SAS survival course for 6 days for charity and even though I could not have any shakes, I took my tablets ( hidden in my rucksack !) and every one else was struggling with muscle soreness and cramp apart from me!. My every levels were also un-believable and I could not believe how aerobically fit I was for a Sprinter during an endurance event !! To me this really was proof that they worked as my body was being pushed to it‗s absolute limits using a different energy system my body was not used too! I would recommend Herbalife products for nutrition of athletes wanting to get the most out of their potential. Herbal life gives you a definite edge as it maintains your weight and keeps your body fat at the correct levels required. How many boxers or runners struggle with this alone?? It also gives you amazing recovery with hardly any muscle soreness after even the hardest training sessions.

Testimonials - Athletics
Toufic Machnouk, running - sprinter I am a sprinter from west London. I've been on the athletics sport nutrition products since feb.03 the products I take are Formula 1, Formula 2, Schizandra (Joint support), NRG, Herbalifeline, Thermojetics beverage, as recommended by Heather Livingstone for athletics sport nutrition. I have a shake in the morning each day and after training sessions and the other products just as they are recommended to be taken! I am also going to try thermo complete now after hearing its testimonial yesterday. Summer season 2002. My personal best for the 100m was 11.7s summer season 2003. My Personal best is now 11.0s. For those who don‘t know much about the 100m sprint. 0.7 of a seconds makes the world of a difference! Now I was training relatively hard ( which you would need to do to progress in any event ) however the products really came at the right time because I had torn my Quad muscle and they help me recover quickly and still progress despite the setback! they also helped me stop throwing up which was a hard thing for me! being on the schizandra (Joint Support), Herbalifeline and thermo beverage I believe is what helped me over come that! Robert T Golly- 61-year old Gold Medal winner running and long jump A friend of Major Robert T Golly introduced him to Herbalife nutrition of athletes and "it was like a breakthrough for me". Bob took off 7kg and began to 'burn up the track'. "Within 6 months I have bettered the U.S.Master's Standard of Excellence in the 100 meters and the long jump". Dr Hale - 400m running Dr Hale is always on the run. An infectious disease specialist, she is also training for the 2000 Olympics. Along with her medical practice, Dr Hale maintains a rigorous training schedule for her speciality, the 400 metre race. "I noticed a difference right away. I used to be so hungry all the time, but using the Herbalife nutritional programme, I noticed I was feeling full. I didn't crave things from the bakery. I didn't need to lose weight by was able to decrease my body fat." Dr Hale's time in the 400 metre race went from 56 seconds to 52 seconds in under 12 months ... an incredible improvement of over 7%. She also suffers from fewer aches and pains, a change she attributes to having better athletics sport nutrition than ever before.

I am working in the Department of Correctional Services as a Re-integration Case Management Supervisor at Port Elizabeth Community Corrections. I am 18yrs of service in this Department but I did not meet my dreams yet. I was introduced to Herbalife Business by Anthony. I met Anthony at Virgin Active in September2005 that time I was very frustrated with my weight Anthony sponsored me with Herbalife products. Before Herbalife I was always tired, stressed, and overweight with a big stomach although I was training every morning. Anthony explained everything to me including business side but I never believe in him. I started to use the products, same day I experience a lot of energy, my stress level came down. After a week I was very excited because my friends and my gym partner start to comment about my energy levels, they wanted to known what is my secret and I told them about Herbalife. My friends also wanted to use Herbalife and I took them to Anthony to sell them some products. Anthony advised me to register as distributor so that I can supply my friends and make money for myself and saw myself in the business. My wife Phathiswa Hedrick also started to use the products she has been struggling with health for five years going in and out of hospital every week. Top doctors, expensive hospitals could not help to improve her health because she was diagnosed with lupus. After using the products she started to feel better until she went for another test in February 2007 and the doctors confirm a clean bill of health and no signs of lupus. I want to thank Anthony for introducing me to Herbalife. Herbalife also fulfilled my dreams of becoming a Bodybuilder, when I started to see a lot of improvement in my weight especially my shape, in April 2007 I took part in a IFBB bodybuilding competition as a Novice. I was placed in the 1st place and also elected to a team to represent the province in the S.A. Championships that was held in Rustenburg and I was in top six in my division. On the 13 September2008 I took part again in a Bodybuilding competition that was held by WPF Eastern Cape and I made top three in my division. My favorite products are formula 1,2 & 3, Protein Powder, Herbal Complex, N R G, Thermo complete, Thermojetics, RoseOx, Cell activator and LipoBond.

Testimonials - Boxing
I have been competing in kickboxing and Taekwondo for many years and have won Gold Medals at World Level Events including World Championships and held two Irish Kickboxing Titles. I always fought in the Super Heavyweight category over 94 kilograms so I never had to watch my food or weight or so I thought. I was a good fighter, but I always felt I could do better. In November 2001 I dropped a weight category in order to take a place on the Irish Team going to the European Championships in Italy. I fought at -94 kilos and I felt very strong and much healthier. I had dropped about 6 kilos for this mainly by eating proper foods and avoiding junk food. I had previously thought that I would only fight at this weight for a short time but I began to get ideas. I decided to drop another weight category down to 89 kilos, a further 5 kilos, because I felt that I would be healthier and stronger. In January of 2002 I saw a Herbalife distributor in a local shop and I asked him for some products Colin O'Shaughnessy because I felt I was going to need some help to drop the further weight. Ireland Within 6 weeks I was down to my new weight and competed to win the 89 kilo national kickboxing title. I felt really strong at the new weight and unlike other athletes who had to dehydrate and starve themselves to make their weight I was sipping my Formula 1 shake and brimming with energy at the weigh in. From this good start I flew to Greece in May 2002 and won the WPKA World 88.5 kilogram World Title. Despite the heat and the intense competition I was overflowing with energy and used the products all the way through the competition. I won a bronze medal at the WAKO World Cup in June, which is one of the hardest open tournaments in the world. The heat of the June climate in Italy did not affect me either as I was nourished and hydrated by my diet. I went on to win another bronze medal in The WAKO European Championships in November thus leaving me with an Overall World Top Ten ranking at the end of the year. In February 2003 I organised and starred in the first World Kickboxing Title fight to be staged in my hometown of Cork, Ireland. In front of a packed arena and National Television I won convincingly. I was unable to compete in the WPKA World Kickboxing Championships in Greece this year because I did not have the travel funds. I travelled so much last year that my reserves were spent. My next tournament is in Italy in June - the WAKO World Cup. The old adage of "you are what you eat" is very true. It applies specially to athletes. I am a skilled fighter, but Herbalife Sports Nutrition has given me a platform to use my skills to the highest level

Testimonials - Boxing
As I look back over my boxing career, my only regret was not having Herbalife nutritional products in my life at that time. My resume of opponents includes Muhammad Ali, Larry Holmes, Ken Norton, Jimmy Ellis! Jerry Quarry, Jimmy Young, Joe Bugner, James "Quick" Tillis, Randal "Tex" Cobb, Roger "Tiger" Williams, Ron Lyle, Henry Clark, Chuck Leslie, Vincente Rondon, Bernardo Mercado, among many others. The physical demands on your body are immense when you are fighting for the Heavyweight Championship of the World. it's therefore vital that you nurture your body with the very best nutrition available. I have used a lot of good nutritional products over the years and they have helped! but none of them gave me the energy or can compare to Herbalife nutritional products — they are the best I've ever used in my entire life. These products will help to ensure that you "feel the difference" and stay energised throughout the day. I only wish I had these products during my fight career.

Hansie Cronje Captain Protea Cricket Team Barry Thurtell - 41 wickets cricket player I play cricket for Wootton Basset 2nd XI as opening bowler. Before I started Herbalife I weighed 196lbs and had to split my bowling spell into 2. I was bowling 8 overs and then 4, because I got out of breath after my initial 8 overs and found that I could not concentrate on the game anymore. This was mid cricket season and I immediately started on the cricket nutrition products (Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3 and Thermojetics Beverage). The results were almost immediate. I lost 12lbs in my first 2 weeks on the products! My concentration and energy levels improved beyond belief and I could complete my bowling spell of 12 overs without a break. Best of all, by the end of the game I still had lots of energy. I have since lost a total of 23lbs and was awarded the bowling trophy by taking a total of 41 wickets in my first season with the club

I am Dr. Carel Bredell, a medical practitioner who has always been interested in healing the underlying problem and not just in treating symptoms. In December 2003 I came back from England where I worked on and off for 18 months with 3 kg of extra fat. I didn‘t like this because I wanted to get back on my racing bike, which I hadn‘t been on for two years. I started taking the products to loose the fat. In Jan 2004 I started training for the Argus, felt much better on the bike than expected, and didn‘t have the niggling injuries I had before, recuperated quicker after training, could train better than before, lost the 3 kg and had my fastest Argus ride ever. I then realised that the one thing that had been missing in my treatment regime in the practice was good nutrition. Herbs and supplements and homeopathics started working better because now the patients got the building blocks to do the repair and healing that it couldn‘t do as effectively before. Since then I take the Nutritional shake, the Fibre and Herb, the Herbalifeline and Joint Support daily. The last one has done wonders on my ankles and back that I broke badly in a flying accident 10 years+ ago. If I have any neck muscle spasm after a long ride on the bike I also have some Tang Kuei. I also take the Personalised Protein Powder after a ride or a race to give my body the protein to do necessary repair. My whole family use the products, in 2005 and 2006 my Argus position improved even further, I have had a paid trip to Atlanta with my wife to attend the 25th anniversary of Herbalife and have made many, many new friends.

Andy Hill played professional football for Manchester United, Bury, Manchester City, Port Vale and now coaches in the United States PDL League and Nevada‘s Olympic Development Programme. ―I was introduced to Herbalife products whilst coaching in Nevada in the United States. Several of the players started taking the products the results of which were quite astonishing. After two months of using the Herbalife products, the players took a physical condition test which revealed that their blood was in excellent condition, their cholesterol was at a very healthy level and that all the players taking the products were in a lot better shape compared to previous tests. They recovered far more quickly after exercise. I am totally convinced that these football nutrition products will help improve the sports performance of any one who uses them. Pre Season in Nevada starts in March and all my players will be using them throughout the season.‖

A welcome boost of energy I started using Herbalife football nutrition products and improving my eating habits during May last year and noticed my energy levels had improved after just one week- I wasn‘t expecting such a speedy result. And consistently waking up before the alarm was also a surprise, In less than a month, my waist and chest had reduced eight centimetres and I had shed three kilos. Tom reveals all in the shower! Training kicks of at the beginning of July. I hadn‘t seen my football pals for some time-they were in for a shock. I still remember their reaction; they just couldn‘t believe their eyes when they say me in the shower with, a new physique! They genuinely thought I had been on some special fitness regime to build up my body. In reality of course the only regime I had embarked on was to change my eating habits and use the Herbalife products on a regular basis. Tried and tested with proof absolute. After two months of following my healthier regime and using the Herbalife products, I took a physical condition test, the results of which were quite something (for those in the know, here are the results: V02 max 68.5 where you start to produce lactate in the muscles = 16.1km/h, fat percentage 6.9%). The test revealed that my blood was in excellent condition and my cholesterol was at a very healthy level. My physical condition, according to this latest test, proved that I was in a lot better shape compared to the tests I underwent when I was a full professional-training twice a day. No more stiffness and aching muscles I think the most helpful and welcome aspect of my new regime is how quickly I recover after hard training or after a game. That stiffness you always expect and aching muscles, well its now completely gone." Tom‘s formula for success in football nutrition has been... "Here's the line-up of products I use as part of my nutrition programme: Formula 1 Shake, before and after training. Formula 1 again two hours after a game or heavy training with protein powder Formula 2 with every meal. Rose Ox every morning. I also drink Herbal Aloe Concentrate and Thermojetics Herbal Beverage. Finally I use Herbalifeline on a daily basis. Since I included it in my programme, I've noticed I haven‘t had one injury, even though I‘m playing tennis and cycling, in addition to football. Its now been 12 months since I first started using Herbalife‘s products and I'm totally convinced that these products will help improve the sports performance of anyone who uses them."

Gareth Gillat - plays golf for England "I am 22 years old and currently trying to become a professional golfer, however, with a part-time job in the construction industry, practicing my golf 4-5hours/day as well as training 5 times/ week I found that I was not fulfilling my potential in a lot of ways. I had very low energy levels, I wasn‘t training as hard as I should have been and I was finding it ever more difficult to recover from a training session. Then, I discovered Herbalife! I received the Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3 and the Thermo beverage and had instant results. I felt stronger, fitter, had more energy and now use them for my golf sports nutritional program as well as general healthy eating. Anybody who is without Herbalife, I believe, is missing out on the best nutritional products and business opportunity in the world" He says about that the golf nutrition he uses "I use the formula one, the protein powder and the chocolate protein bars for energy - I have just had the best winter training feeling much better than ever.

"To achieve my sporting and personal goals I decided personally that my health and that of my close family had to have the guesswork taken out of it. As previous national and international champion and currently a 7th Dan joint world chief instructor, I need to be at my best. Karate training encompasses many aspects of fitness and suppleness. Recovery after training is of course a critical element of your body and mind adapting to new demands For many years I worked hard on my own nutritional needs and during more than 36 years of training I have used a large variety of supplements. Since being introduced to the Herbalife nutrition supplement range of products 8 years ago my wife Jean & I along with all of our family have enjoyed staggering result eating these products every day. For the very first time I actually feel a tangible difference in my daily wellness and energy levels from taking these products daily. These martial arts nutrition products have been a core reason that for many years now, I personally can travel so extensively and that my body and mind can cope with international teaching, training and a business programme with demands that many people would find very difficult to cope with. With my sport I need stamina, good recovery and explosive power. The Herbalife Protein drink is very easy to use prior to and post strenuous training sessions. I find it easy to digest and the effective absorption allows me full energy to get through my training session. I also use the drink for keeping my body fat at a desired level when I am travelling and the Thermojetics works extremely well for added energy boosts. The Fibre & Herb, Herbalifeline, Rose Ox, Tang Kuei are important additions to my programme. I have recently been able to incorporate Herbalife‘s Protein Powder into my programme allowing me to get in the extra protein essential for rebuilding after strenuous workouts. Being a vegetarian it also ensures my protein intake. The new product I am also very excited about is Herbalife‘s Joint Support which already provides noticeable results but which gives me the assurance that my joints will be well ―nourished‖ in the years to come. In today‘s highly competitive sports arena, nutrition WILL make the difference. Herbalife as a range of products meets every one of my needs. It tastes great, is well priced and is very convenient. The results seen to date have been remarkable."

"My name is Thorsten Nickel; I'm an actor and martial artist (shotokan Karate-2nd Dan), trained in boxing and Thai boxing. My biggest movie so far would be the Jackie Chan film 'Thunderbolt' in which I'm the Co-Star, amongst others. I worked with most known Hong Kong stars (Jet Li, Sammo Hung etc..), and to keep up with training to stay in shape, nutrition is one of the key factors. When you get older, recovery times slow down and energy levels seem to drop, but I learned that the right nutrition is half the battle. Herbalife fits right into my martial arts nutrition programme. It works on the same principles I've been applying in recent years. Those shakes don't just taste good, they also help tremendously in my recovery process and/or preparation for better workouts. I also use formula 1 shakes as an ideal snack or just if pressed for time as a replacement meal. They are very versatile. In addition I use Formula2 and fish liver oil and drink lots of water."

Testimonials – Motor Sport
Jeremy Hill Powerbikes I have competed on many different sizes of motorcycle ranging from 350cc to 1000cc since 1991. Up to 1998, races were primarily short circuits, consisting of 10 lap ―sprints‖ on circuits like Brands Hatch or Donnington Park. In 1998 I started Endurance racing. This comprises of a team of 3 riders, aided by a pit crew, racing one bike for 6 or 8 hours. I focused on Endurance until the end of 2002. I have been using the Herbalife motor sport nutrition programme of Formula 1 and Protein Powder to fuel and refuel my body and Formula 2, Cell Activator and Schizandra (Joint Support) to help my body deal with the stress of exercise and aid recovery. Motor sport nutrition is especially vital on race day as each race or segment of racing is like a workout and as I would need to be out on the track several times during the day, refuelling and recovery are major aspects of this sport. Since 2002 I have had the energy and stamina to compete in the British Endurance Championship riding a 600cc bike for the Kawasaki Team as well as racing a Yamaha R1 in the Nationwide Powerbike Championships. I have had many wins and am one of the front-runners in both championships. Herbalife has tuned my body for success and it has had a direct influence on my winning results improving my stamina, concentration and recovery."

I have shed a few unwanted kilos, feel alert and sharp throughout the day, however long it may be.

"The Herbalife sport products have allowed me to keep in just as good a shape as I had when I was playing top class rugby. Not bad when you consider that my training regime presently consists of just doing press-ups and sit-ups morning and evening which, as you can imagine, is not quite the schedule I used to maintain! My full time job currently consists of sitting in a cockpit hours on end. It is a very sedentary existence and indeed before I took the products it meant that I was fast turning into your overweight, stereotypical, middle-aged pilot, not to mention ex rugby player. I have now taken control of my nutrition and not only have I stopped middle-aged spread I have also begun to give my body the best protection I can from the damaging environment in which I work. Thankfully I have discovered these products and they have made a huge difference to me. But if only I had discovered them during my playing days, knowing now how important optimum nutrition is for optimal performance. I am positive that whatever your challenges the products can help you too. Don't look back with regret as I do now. You have the gift of good nutrition right now. Take the products, feel the difference and enjoy a new beginning.”

Tony Underwood England Rugby International

“While still playing rugby for Western Province and the Stormers, I was looking for a safe and effective range of nutrition and started using the range of Herbalife nutritional products during the 2002 season with phenomenal results. I experienced an almost immediate energy increase and after three weeks on the products, I moved up 16 places to number 2 in the Squad’s test group! I continue to use the products on a daily basis and have my top 35 players using them as well in order to give them the edge that I experienced while still playing” says Thys. Thys moved to France as a rugby player, then became a coach and is now Director of Rugby at Marseille Rugby Club in the South of France. He says "I continue to use the Herbalife nutrition on a daily basis and have my top 35 rugby players using them as well in order to give them the edge that I experienced while still playing."

"Looking after my nutrition in rugby gives me a huge advantage.“ He says "I use the Herbalife nutrition products before, during and after practise sessions and games for fuelling, refuelling, hydration and recovery. I can definitely feel a big difference in sustained energy levels during a game as well as the speed of my recovery afterwards as long as I use the products correctly. On the odd occasion I slip up and forget, I feel a big difference. I have been using Herbalife nutrition for 11 years so its now second nature to me.“

Baldwin Mc Bean Southern Spears Before using the Herbalife nutritional products I was struggling to gain weight, while I was using cretin, I only got stronger. I couldn’t gym for more than an hour because I didn’t have stamina to gym for more than an hour. When I started using the Herbalife products I gained about 3 to 4 kg within a month just using the Herbalife shake after every meal. I used the herbal (Thermojetics) tea twice during the day and during a gym sessions, it gave me a lot of stamina and energy and could gym for more than an hour at a time. In the afternoons I do a lot of running and did not get as tired as I normally would get when running. After training sessions I also have to go to class because I‘m a student and have enough energy now to sit through the whole class.

"My background is 28 years in the Police Force. I have been a Physical Training Instructor for more than 12 years and a Senior Coach with UK Athletics for 14 years. I have been involved in Athletics since I was at school in Yorkshire, and represented the Yorkshire Schools at Cross Country. During my sports career, I have represented Great Britain in the European Police Championships in Munich, Germany, won 2 County Championships at High Jump and 2 at 3000m Steeplechase. I have also run 9 Marathons. In 1994 I returned to my favourite sport of Fell and Mountain running, and compete in races throughout the year, mainly in the Lake District, Pennines and Scotland. Before Herbalife running nutrition I found it difficult to run or even jog the day after a hard or long race. Some races are in excess of 6 hours duration and 24 miles in length or multi-day Mountain Marathons or Adventure Races. Since starting to use Herbalife sport nutrition products in October 2001, I have found that my energy levels have improved dramatically. My recovery, particularly after races, and also hard training, has been greatly Martin Wood enhanced, to the point where I can run two hard fell races in three days and can still run the following day. Endurance Runner This year, my race results have shown no loss of form or time, despite a lack of training due to work commitments, (and advancing years!), in fact in June 04, I set a new personal best for a 23 mile fell race, run in poor weather, that I set 8 years ago, in ideal conditions and did not expect to get near that time again. Herbalife has taken my running back to a point it was at 10 years ago. This is great, as I am now 46 and looking forward to the next 40 years of fell running, and feeling fantastic. For running nutrition I use Formula 1 for fuelling before, during and after exercise. I add protein powder for recovery and use Formula 2, Formula 3, Schizandra Plus (Joint Support) and RoseOx every day, as well as all the other products."

Testimonials - Sailing
"Completing a full and active training program is the key to attaining full fitness. As part of every session I take formula one 45 minutes before training. This provides me with the energy I need, without the fullness of having a meal, and in terms of convenience it is ideal. As soon as possible after training I take another serving. This immediately refuels me, when I would not feel like eating, and it never leaves me feeling uncomfortable or bloated. This routine enables me to train several times a day, and has led to a large decrease in muscle soreness afterwards. The Herbalife sport nutrition program is extremely palatable, and I can see no reason why I will not be using it for the duration of my sailing career. I believe it is something which can benefit club sailors and international competitors alike, and I would quite happily recommend it to anyone. For me Liquid nutrition is crucial. After training I never feel like eating solids, and for convenience, Herbalife formula one shake is unbeatable, the best sports nutrition I have tried. I travel extensively through competing and coaching sailing, and I know that I can rely on formula one to meet all my sailing nutritional needs."

"Alone across Antarctica, to beat the elements you have to be in peak physical condition. I've achieved this with the skiing nutrition supplements taken regularly using Herbalife products, especially during my intense training periods. They provide an invaluable support on my 2845km, 64-day record making trek across the Antarctica." Borge Ousland Antarctic skier and explorer

Fran T. - skiing for fun "I thought that I was reasonably fit and healthy and weighed in at a satisfactory weight of 63-65 kilograms. However, I was feeling the strain of a demanding business, work related travel, three small children, keeping up with the garden, training for and running 1/2 marathons, tennis and wherever possible skiing. On top of all this I had to deal with asthma and continual hay fever. This was all until I was introduced to Herbalife sport nutrition products. I managed to lose about 3 kilos, but what was really amazing, were the centimetres I lost, especially with my legs. My whole body just "firmed up". I now have stamina to burn and have never felt better or healthier before. Thanks to Herbalife I am continuing to better my Marathon times and feel fantastic. ―Favourite Herbalife skiing nutrition products are Formula 1.

Testimonials - Squash
Sean Hobday, 39, Amateur Squash Player Squash is a high impact game on the knees and legs in general. I always suffered from aches and pains after the game especially the first day after the match.

By taking Formula 1 half an hour before the game and then taking it again after the match with additional protein powder my recovery period is now nearly non-existent.
I have more energy during the match and I find I get into the match a lot quicker than before. Previously before taking the products I often lost the first game, I now often take the first game and therefore have more confidence to take the match. I can now easily play a whole match with no tiredness and find I am not as breathless as before. I have moved up the local squash leagues from league 6 to league 3(league 1 is the highest and 18 is the bottom). I enjoy the game more and it is great to beat an 18 or 19 year old player without feeling tired or exhausted! Favourite squash nutrition product - Formula 1 shakes, Protein Powder, Protein Bars.

I broke the South African 400m individual medley record. My swimming career began when I joined the Mustangs swimming club in 2001.
