Testimonialsviewing 0 to 50 (50-100) next >> I completed RAMROD this year (Ride Around Mount Rainier in One Day) and with the guidance on Perpetuem you provided, I was able to shave 1 hour off my previous time. Last year I took 50 minutes worth of breaks, this year I stopped for 7 MINUTES over 8:30 hours. Absolutely FANTASTIC! I love your product and I much appreciate the personalized guidance you were able to offer.
Dan Since returning to the triathlon sport after a 3 year break, I have found that the Chocolate Whey product has assisted with my recovery and helped me accomplish more in my training regime, especially on my heavy training days. I always feel fresh and ready to tackle the next training session.
Pete Vara I have been trying two of Hammer's new products, the Endurolytes Fizz and Perpetuem Solids. Both are freakin awesome! The FIZZ tablets seem to settle my stomach and the Perpetuem Solids are handy, in that it frees up a bottle and that they can be taken as needed.
Tim D. I purchased the Compex Sport Elite from Hammer Nutrition. I had spoken with the doctors about using a device like this. They thought it was worth a try. I had researched these devices for 2 months. I can't put into words how this has helped me. The removal of pain is priceless. Being able to get out of bed and move without pain is GREAT! This unit helped me as soon as I received it and used it the same day. The reason I chose this over everything else is because it works the muscle and gets blood flowing to fix the problems. I had been to physical therapy so many times and they would use devices that did similar programs but they were not lasting and effective. The pain never really left. So I say to Compex and Hammer Nutrition a THANKS BIG TIME!!! I am on the way to getting my life back. This is PRICELESS!!! Also Hammer Nutrition is PRICELESS to me. Their Products and Customer Service are GREAT!!!
Greg Q. By the way, the Perpetuem Solids are great- they are sometimes easier to carry on very long rides/runs (in excess of 5 hours) than the liquid because of weight and all you need is water. Thanks!
Tom F. We rock climbed in 100 degree weather yesterday and the Endurolytes Fizz kept us going! Thanks so much!
Kim D. Adding Race Caps Supreme to my nutrition platform this race season has proved to be a terrific decision. With Race Caps, I feel that I am a much stronger athlete, which has greatly helped me power through my longer and more difficult workouts. Great product for any athlete looking to progress to the next level.
Charlie C. I have been using Recoverite for 4-5 months after being referred to you guys by a friend. The first thing I did after finishing a run was to mix it up and drink it to aid my recovery. I recently ran out of the product and decided that I would wait to buy more. Big mistake! For the first time in months I went out for a run and had a deep soreness in my legs! Needless to say, I will be placing an order soon. Thanks for the great product and service!
Matt F. Loving y'all and the smorgasbord of products you sent in my first order, already feeling and seeing the results. I'll add whey protein to the next order....gracias!
John R. Hammer, thank you guys for everything! I have been using your stuff for 5 years! In the past year I have been training for IMKY and you have helped me on my journey! In March I blew out 3 discs in my back and lost the use and feeling from my waist down for 2 months, and had to learn to walk again. A month in the hospital, I drank Recoverite everyday, got back in the pool and started biking in June. Doctors can't believe where I am. I was supposed to be using a cane/walker for a year. I tell them it is because of my training and my nutrition plans that keep me healthy at all times! Thanks again Hammer, you guys are the best!
Marc E. When it's time to start serious training again and time to shed those recovery-mode pounds, I like to use Appestat. It not only helps me control my appetite but it gives me a mental boost.
Kyle Dees "I was told by a biking friend that the Hammer line of products are very good for providing proper nutrition during biking exercise and races. As testimony to their effectiveness, I had radically different experiences comparing the century I rode in the Tour de Moore and the century I rode at the MS-150. At the Tour de Moore, I relied primarily on a combination of a leading sports drink, amino acids, waxy maize (complex carb) and energy gels. At the 75-mile mark, I began getting cramps in both legs, hamstrings to quads. I fought cramping to the end. At 94 or so miles, I bonked. I was wasted with no fuel left in my tank. Determined to never repeat this experience, I asked around and was put onto the Hammer products. For the New Bern rides, less than 2 weeks later, I used Hammer's Perpetuem, and supplemented with electrolyte capsules. I had 6 energy gels in my jersey, but only used 2. I probably could have done without them. I experienced no cramps on the ride, I was never hungry nor ever felt like I was on empty as far as fuel. I finished the race strong and trimmed 34 minutes off my time, in spite of higher temps and humidity. This has to be one of the best products available."
Christopher C Mangum When I saw the new and improved Recoverite shaker, I was very skeptical... especially when I saw the crazy spiral wire thing inside. I have been pleasantly surprised that it works well. The top doesn't leak when I shake it up, and the crazy wire thing does a good job of breaking up all those tasty Recoverite chunks into something more guzzelable.
Mary-Lynn Hansen Thanks Steve! I was fairly comfortable with my routine and felt like it was pretty well supported by all that I have read on your site and the list over the years, but it always helps to get it distilled down like that. As a side note, you guys rock and your customer support is second to none. As Director of Operations for a small family owned business, I can appreciate the efforts required to provide the level of support that you guys do. I imagine having a product line as fantastic as yours makes it easy to spend all day every day talking about it! Over the past few years that I've been taking the majority of your supplements and using your fuels I've felt better and better. I rarely get sick and I've been able to get stronger and faster while not wearing down. I've sold a number of other people on your stuff through no overt actions of my own. They've just asked me what I use after a run or a group ride (after seeing me dash to my car for my Recoverite and pill tube), and I tell them. EVERY time that has happened, they've come back to me raving about whatever product they tried. Good stuff man, good stuff. Thanks again and have an awesome spring!! Mike Garrison Indy Rootstock
Michael Garrison I just got a chance to try out the new Caffe Latte flavor of Perpetuem last weekend, and again today. I give it a big thumbs up! I have typically used the unflavored version & mixed it with Espresso Hammer Gel. The new flavor not only tastes even better, but is that much easier to prepare.
Dave Twinam I just wanted to drop a note about Endurance Amino. What a great amino supplement! I have tried others, but none compare to Hammer's. I've noticed a great difference during 50+ mountain bike rides. I have better endurance, better recovery, and even a better mood!
Jennifer Turner Appestat has been a great product during the Holiday season. It really helps ward of the cravings for all the rich winter foods. It has also been good right before the season starts, to trim that little extra away.
Robert Gagen For me, Boron is one of the many links in maximizing the overall health of my body, which leads to better workouts and recovery.
Scott Ward I have added both Endurolytes and the Endurance Amino caps and on hard workouts over 2 1/2 hours, and I have noticed a huge difference.
Brian Freeze Steve, Your personal replies are awesome. This company rocks! thank you so much, susan
Susan I was recommended Perpetuem as a pre-race meal. (I also used Hammer gel and Endurolytes throughout the race.) On Saturday I enjoyed my FIRST race use of Perpetuem, FIRST race without being doubled over in pain @ the finish line (and first time able to eat normally within 24 hours AFTER a race), and my FIRST FIRST PLACE FEMALE finish at a trail race in Wyoming this weekend!! Coincidence? I think not. Great product y'all!
Molly Cobbs Without your Perpetuem, I couldn't have successfully completed the IM Coeur d'Alene. Having trained with it, I felt confident that the Perpetuem would supply all of my nutritional needs while not upsetting my stomach. It worked like a charm.
Julian Watson I did a little experiment (unintentionally) with my training nutrition. I'd been following every workout for the last few months with Recoverite immediately after each workout and feeling really good. Then I ran out of my home supply and was too lazy to go get some more at storage - so... for 3 weeks I went without Recoverite my training basically went downhill fast. At first I thought it was just a bad stretch I was going through (or maybe I was just getting old) until I started back on the Recoverite last week and immediately felt 100% better. You have my endorsement. What a great product. As an official "Master" I need all the help I can get.
Shannon Kurek All of your customers comments are related to online service, advise, etc. I'll have to say that you are exactly the same "in person". We enjoyed our visit at your distribution center...meeting a number of the staff...seeing the orders filled...and receiving a great tour of the facility. We also really appreciated the ride advise...had a great trip going from West Glacier to St. Mary's over the "Going to the Sun Rd. An EPIC ride for sure. We are already planning a trip for next year with our riding group. Thanks so much.
Bob D I just wanted to say that I have been extremely impressed with your staff, customer service, and products. From my first phone call to you guys, your company and staff have been professional and supportive with all of my questions and all my race needs. From your generosity with the free samples to your speed in processing all of my orders, I think you guys are the greatest.
Robert K Great customer service. I got the advice I needed and prompt delivery of the products I ordered. I asked for delivery within the same week. Took 3 day shipping service and received the shipment in less than 24 hours after ordering! Now I am ready to do another double century bike ride this weekend !
Richard McCaw Hi Steve First, I wanted to tell you all...that you are the bomb!! My nutrition for the last 2 months on my bike and run have been awesome. I am looking forward to the race and showing off Hammer Nutrition:) Just a little note to tell you that I will be attempting my 2 Ironman in Florianopolis, Brazil on May 29th. I will gone from May 23-June 4. I should be back in the swing of things by June 7th. Just wanted to say to you all...THANK YOU for all your support and confidence in me. It means a lot to me. I am really looking forward to this journey.
Jennifer Fritzsching I have tried a bunch of things from alternative sleep remedies to prescription drugs. The problem has not been so much getting to sleep as staying asleep, although sometimes I can't get to sleep either. So far nothing has worked as well as REM Caps. I have been sleeping right through the night.
Bill C This is the most effective post workout recovery product that I have ever tried. The Hammer Nutrition formula provides the perfect combination of high-quality carbs and protein, all in a great tasting drink. The mild citrus flavor is so much better than some of the other sickeningly sweet or heavy products on the market. With Recoverite, I am doing my toughest workouts and feeling ready to go again in a matter of hours.
Matt Seeley Recently I had started using Hammer products in my training and really liked the results. So I decided to put them to the real test. This weekend I ran my first ultra-marathon (52.2 miles). For the entire run I fueled only with Hammer gel, Perpetuem, and Endurolytes. Absolutely amazing! My energy was high for the entire time. In fact at the end of the race, I wanted to keep going. I assure you that you have a customer for life now! I'm spreading the word to anyone who will listen.
Crystal Clark I have found Recoverite to be an exceptional post workout recovery drink. It allows me to recover more thoroughly and rapidly. This has been especially helpful in multi-day races. In fact I frequently find my subsequent day's performance is as good if not better.
Stuart Kremzner I've been using your Tissue Rejuvenator for the past month. I have 2 herniated discs due to a climbing injury 2 months ago. I'm back running 1.5 miles now with no pain. I truly believe my recovery has been faster due to the Tissue Rejuvenator.
Chad Bevill I started using digest caps about 2 months ago. Without going into details, I can say that without a doubt this is the best product on the market to aid in regular waste elimination and keeping the system clean and light.
John Flynn I just wanted to send a thank you to Hammer Nutrition. I recently ordered your Daily Essentials pack and have seen dramatic improvements in my training and racing performance. In fact, after using your product for almost three weeks I won my first Cat 4 race. Your products have helped me overcome the physical barriers which once held me back. I am sure you hear this all the time, but you have a great product and I always more than happy to share my testimony with other riders who want to know what my secret is.
Garrett Boucke I wanted to thank you for your support. I've been a long time believer of all of your products. In the mid 90's I participated in a study done on e-caps at Sacramento State University. I was skeptical and thought it might just be a placebo effect. The results were clear, e-caps reduced lactic acid during hard exercise, thus faster times. Since then, besides Race caps, I use Sustained energy, Endurolytes, and Hammer gel with great success in ultra Mountain bike events. Thanks again.
Mark Gouge I just wanted to drop a quick email letting you know how pleased I was when I ordered product from Hammer Nutrition. I'm a professional cyclist who is always looking at new products to increase my cycling ability and I've found that in the HEED drink mix and Hammer Gel. I was referred to the product by a fellow teammate and from that day on I have been craving it in all my training and racing, so I placed an order.. On the phone I was treated like your most prized athlete by a lady who didn't even know me. Your prices are great and the product is even better. Thank you for all of your support, research, and dedication to sport. I will always remain a user and promoter.
Kevin Day After years of dealing with next day soreness after a hard workout and thinking it was a "fact of life" I tried your Recoverite product. After a training run of 28 miles I consumed a two scoops in 12 ounces of water and another two scoops about an hour later. I woke up the next day and to my total surprise I had no muscle soreness. This stuff is incredible. Don't ever discontinue this product or you'll have a lot of unhappy customers.
Richard Buell One reason I feel so confident about the Hammer products and why I recommend them to all the athletes I coach is because of the expertise and knowledge of you and the rest of the Hammer staff. Providing immediate and concise feedback such as you provided me today is almost unheard of in today's corporate world. I do appreciate it.
Jeff Cuddeback Since I began using a Endurolyte capsule both before and after biking or swimming I have had no post-exertion migraines. My Primary Care and Neurologist were amazed to discover the real cause of those migraines and how easy it was to treat versus the IV hydration & pain shots. The effects are much more consistent than with the grocery store 'sports drinks'. And the recovery from fatigue is quicker; and as a person with once debilitating Fibromyalgia, this effect is huge for my life. I'm so glad I tried them.
Jeanne LaViollette Kenny here from 3 Disciplines Racing. Once again we would like to THANK YOU for your incredible support. You truly have a great company and race director support and follow up is second to none in this industry. We do greatly appreciate your support of all our events. It is a great asset to our event management and over event amenities.
Kenny I wanted to thank you for your advice and support with regards to my questions about nutrition during double centuries. Using this strategy I was able to complete the Terrible Two, the Death Ride, Marin Double Century and the Solvang double with none of the previous problems. It's been a great year and I could not have done it with out Perpetuem and Endurolytes.
Cameron Lim A few marathons ago, I switched to Heed in my own long-distance training, having had bad experiences with other so-called sports drinks, so I couldn't in good conscience serve anything else at Two Bear. One hundred two marathoners started the our race, and 101 finished! This is phenomenal on any marathon course, let alone a course as challenging as Two Bear!
Dan Weinberg I just want to thank Steve Born for the nutrition clinic at the Silverman Ironman. This was my first Ironman distance but I have done numerous double century cycling events with your products. Going into the Silverman, I wasn't sure about my morning nutrition, especially with other athletes always saying how can I do this event with just starting out in the morning with 250 calories (carbs). After listening to Steve, I knew that I was going to be okay. My nutrition intake on the bike was perfect and (I stayed with the Hammer products) my run and recovery were great.
Stepheny Chepin I can personally say that I am sold on your products! My favorite so far is the Tissue Rejuvenator. I have been taking this product for about two weeks now. For the first time my back does not hurt every morning, and I can't tell that I ever had knee surgery.
Faye Yates I have raced competitively for the past 19 years and have used many products over the year but I admit I did not use Hammer Nutrition products until this year. Wow! As a Chiropractor and as a Category 2 cyclist I am always on the lookout for anything that makes me function and compete better and I have found that with your products.
Michael Onkels During a 5+ hour event with 11,000 feet of climbing in 100 miles and I started taking the e-caps after the first hour or so. Since my body was not prepared for the effort I demanded of it, my legs began to have twinges of cramps in retaliation. So I popped some e-caps and the cramps went away. An hour later the cramps returned and again I banished them with some more e-caps. It was unbelievable. Each time as I began to cramp, I popped a couple of e-caps and within 3-5 minutes there were no signs of cramps whatsoever.
Bruce Sanders I've used Hammer gel for years and always loved it. I also love Endurolytes... they keep me from cramping, getting sick, etc., but they also cut my water consumption more than 50%. I love the support literature--the training pamphlet, the newsletter; they've taught me loads about diet and training. And I love the fact that your phones are staffed by people with expertise and commitment.
J Rawlins I just wanted to say thank you for supporting the Ultracentric 24/48 hour run! It was a well run race and I couldn't have done it without HAMMER GEL. It's the best stuff on the market and I use it in every ultra run I enter. Thank you for your support!
Sam Livingston I appreciate your efforts and support for ALL of our club races and the Redman race. I have watched this club grow from inception 3 years ago, and I'm honored to be a part of it's leadership. We would not be where we are with our race series without the support of great products like Hammer Nutrition. Steve B. and myself are living examples that this sort of promotional advertising works. I had never tried hammer gel until last year, and now I'm hooked. I can't run with anything else, and perpetuem and e-caps (it was 94 degrees and HUMID) pushed me to my first iron distance finish in Sept, of course the Redman. I recently started working part time at a local bike shop, and we now carry hammer nutrition products. It's easy for me to recommend these to costumers due to their quality and my testimony. You will definitely be supported in our area, we appreciate your charitable company!
Holly Hicks I love Hammer Gel for the feeling of consistent energy it provides during races. No sugar spikes here. I like the flask dispensers because it enables me to mix the gel with water to get the perfect consistency that goes down easily even when I'm going full-bore. The fruity flavors are my favorites!
Christoph Herby I take Race Caps and Endurolytes before and during long road events. I find that they help to delay the onset of fatigue. Because my body feels less worn down late in the races, I feel like they also help my alertness at critical points in the race. When I take these caps towards the end of the race I feel a distinct improvement in my energy level.
