Instinct Sports Nutrition
Instinct has been my longest running sponsor, and I’m so glad I have been apart of the team for nearly 4 years now. When you find something that works, especially when it comes to nutrition, stick with it! And that’s exactly what I’ve done.
Their range of products covers all my nutrition requirements for my training and racing. During training we all need to eat and drink, no surprises there. So with the Rehydration Formula, which helps maintain optimum fluid levels, and Sports Energy Gel, creating instant, longer lasting and sustained energy, I am set.
Then immediately post training, recovery is my first thought. That’s where their Brown Rice Protein Powder comes in handy, as it increases muscle recovery after exercise. Within fifteen minutes of finishing any hard training session, I’m sure to have this with either water or milk. When I’m in need of a bit of extra protein, I’ll add it to a smoothie or protein balls too.
With nutrition needs met, the next factor is flavour. And I wouldn’t be consuming something for nearly 4 years if I didn’t like the taste! You can choose from blood orange mandarin or berry for the rehydration formula, the sports energy gels also come in berry, and there is the choice of chocolate or vanilla for the brown rice protein.
Above everything, what I love most about Instinct Sports Nutrition is that it is all natural with it’s organic ingredients and it is Informed-Sport tested, so you know you can trust it (plus it is gluten free!). I have a sensitive stomach when it comes to food, so to find a product that I can consume numerous times daily and during intense exercise, was so important for me. And that’s exactly what I found with Instinct Sports Nutrition.
I’m so glad Instinct has supported me through the ups and downs of my triathlon career so far, having nutrition sorted is such a huge part of being an elite athlete. So I strongly encourage anyone that is still looking for the right product for them, or if you want to try something new, head over to their website. It has all the information you need and you can read why other athletes love their products as well.
