Testimonials<< prev (0-50) viewing 50 to 100 (100-150) next >> 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.
Christoph Herby This year for the first time I began taking the Tissue Rejuvenator after hard workouts and races. Immediately I noticed that I was not getting the second day soreness from the intensity. This coupled with the Xobaline allowed me to increase the amount of high stress training I was able to complete during the week.
Ben Lindsay Hammer HEED is the best sports drink I've used. No gastrointestinal problem unless I mix too much in. Better delivery and no spikes. Very gentle and effective. I use it both for training, and racing.
O Timothy Jones I want to say a special thanks to my awesome sponsor Hammer Nutrition. I had a terrific race because of the great products I use. The weather was unseasonably hot and runners were really having a tough time but I was great with HEED in my camelbak and 1-2 endurolytes every hour. As far as calories go I alternated between Hammer Gel and Perpetuem paste(from a hammer flask) at 1-2 servings/hour. My only other intake was water which I drank at the aid stations. From an energy standpoint everything was fantastic and I never bonked or hit a "wall". Thanks to everyone at Hammer for your constant support and terrific products.
Amanda McIntosh The Daily Essentials are awesome. I have been using the kit for about 5 weeks and I have noticed less post-exercise fatigue as well as what I could describe as another aerobic gear. Plus, I just feel better throughout the day!
Blake Becker Thanks to the outstanding Hammer products, I completed my first IM race with no nutritional issues or cramping several weeks ago in Kona. Throughout the build-up for this event I was amazed by my body's ability to recover and train at a high level. No doubt due to the positive effects of using Perpetuem, E-caps, HEED, Hammer Gel, Recoverite and Super AO
Brad You all do such a great job of supporting your customers, and of knowing your business so well. Though I've determined I'm probably not all that keen on MTB racing, I'm now more than ever committed to Hammer products for my recreational efforts. When you live in an area just peppered with elite competition and recreational athletes, it's nice to have an edge in nutritional/supplementation knowledge and products. Hammer absolutely does that for me!
David Treinis In addition to making the finest endurance supplements, you now have a customer for life. The attention to detail and individual treatment of your customer base will undoubtedly translate in to future profits. It's rare to see a business today operating in such a manner. Put this one on the bulletin board as you are to be commended.
David W. Pancerz We love the products so it's easy to promote e-caps. Tonight at spin class a guy was getting cramps so I whipped out the endurolytes. Ahhh... Nothing like instant relief. That gave me the chance to talk to a bunch of folks about them. It's a no-brainer! Don't leave home without them.
Robert Graf I've used a lot of supplements and fuels over the years, and Hammer and E-Caps products are the best I've tried - Hands down. I've been using your products for about 3.5 years now and have no hesitation in recommending them to any of my athletes or friends.
Brent George I have been on a very vigorous workout binge lately in an effort to regain my quickly fading youth. I have been using the Recoverite and like everything about it.
Brad Hunt I am enjoying this pre-season training supplemented by Hammer Nutrition. I have always known the products to be great, but now that I am on the full line of products, it's like a whole different world! I am doing workouts I usually wouldn't be strong/fit enough to do until late March.
Felipe Bastos Steve - I wanted to thank you for working with D3 Multisport over the last few years. As you know, I have been a strong supporter of E-Caps and Hammer products for many years now. Personally, I have tried everything there is to try in the nutrition industry as I am always looking to get that edge on my competitors. When I first tried Hammer products my energy levels were even throughout my workouts and race. Finally, I wasn't getting that up/down - high sugar -low sugar feeling, and I knew you guys had it dialed in right. I haven't used anything but Hammer products since. My daily regimen is the Daily Essentials and I use HEED and SE for racing. Recoverite and Whey Protein are also part of my recovery process and leave me feeling ready to go day after day. I can't thank you enough for your help and timely replies to my emails. You and your company have provided me and my athletes a great service and I wish you and Hammer/E-Caps nothing but the best as you keep growing your business. Best regards for a great 2006 and beyond! Mike Ricci USAT Elite Level Coach USAT National Coaching Commission www.D3Multisport.com
Mike Ricci I am a triathlete (former swimmer). Just did my first IM in Florida last November and qualified for the big one in Hawaii this October. I just use Perpetuem mixed up in a super concentrated bottle with hammer gel and hammer gel every 30 min on the run. I think I would puke if I had to eat anything solid in one of those events. Hammer products are my saviour.
Rob We have now finished 6 stages with one to go. The guys are loving the heed and endurolytes. No heat problems at all, very remarkable. Other guys are hitting us up for stuff, the word is out!! I gave some tabs to Davy McCann who has problems with cramping, he will probably email you. Tommy Evans loves the Heed and the consistent feed it gives him, very high praise from an experienced rider. One of our riders broke his wrist yesterday, I was able to find a new use for a HEED container by cutting it up and fabricating a wrist splint out of it (he of course rode today, ouch), pics when I get back! Again, THANKS. Peter
Peter, Tour of Siam in Thailand Thank you for the HEED Samples. I used it a few times now and really like it. I have tried so many powder drinks and they leave such a strange after-taste and HEED is good!
Dawn Ver Haagh I began using Hammer Nutrition products six years ago. After dealing with stomach issues do to my high glycemic nutritional choices in my first two Hawaii Ironmans, I switched to Hammer Nutrition products and not only experienced no GI issues, but PR’d as well. I began recommending Hammergel, Sustained Energy, and Endurolytes to all the athletes that I was coaching, and there feedback has been incredibly positive. I have since switched to using Perpetuem and Endurolytes during the bike portion of ½ and full Ironmans and use Hammergel and Endurolytes during the run. This protocol has provided me as well as many of the athletes I work with, a nice steady energy flow during training and racing, without the highs and lows caused by higher glycemic sugars. I am continually impressed by the products that Hammer Nutrition/E-Caps are researching and distributing, and by their passion and uncompromising high standards to which they hold their products and reputations. I am a big fan of Race Supreme Caps and have my athletes that I coach using these, as well as my personal training clientele who are training to get in shape, stay fit, lose weight, and rehabilitate issues but have no interest in racing. The high quality Coenzyme Q-10 is something that I believe everyone should have in his or her nutritional habits. I also really like the Premium Insurance Caps, the Mito-R Caps, Super AO, and the Norwegian Salmon Oil. Hammer Nutrition and E-Caps continue to set the standard in endurance nutrition, and you won’t find purer products and a more knowledgeable or helpful staff anywhere.
Eric Hodska My adult hockey team has been suffering a case of late game collapses, but this week we had an ace in the hole. With a cooler of HEED we were able to change our fortunes. I had been taking 1-2 ounces of HEED every other time I got to the bench, and on my last three shifts I felt considerably stronger than my first three. All the other players that drank it before and throughout the game reported feeling strong in the final minutes, and our team was noticeably quicker and more energetic than the opponents.
Henry Roberts Thanks again for all your help with this. I can't say enough about how well everybody at Hammer has taken care of me. Every customer service/sponsorship interaction I've ever had with anybody there has been fantastic, I can't think of another company where the customer service has been so good. You guys rock
Dan Seaton I have been turning non-athlete friends and family on to some of the products. For instance, my daughter's boyfriend is a piano player and had wrist problems; notice I said "had". We got those wrists going again with Tissue Rejuvinator.
Keith Just thought I'd let you know things are going well. I won Rocky Raccoon in Texas on Saturday. It was the USATF 100 Mile Trail Championship. It was great that Hammer was a sponsor. I had some bottles filled with Perpetuem that I drank for the first 30 miles, the rest of the race I used Heed and Hammer Gel that was offered at the aid stations. I felt great the whole 100 miles. I slowed for the final 20 miles due to darkness, not fatigue....it's tough to see the trail after sunset. Thanks for your support!
Connie Gardner I just wanted to drop a line and let you all know how much I enjoy the new Hammer bars! Not only are the bars extremely healthy, but they taste great as well. I have tried the Almond-Raison and Chocolate chip bars and really like them both. Keep up the great work in creating products that not only improve performance, but health as well!
David Hanenburg I wanted to thank your company for making exceptional products and delivering them with outstanding customer service. Hammer Nutrition and e-caps products were my last stop on the seemingly never ending search for supplements/fuel for my road and mountain biking. Everything else on the market (I've tried them all) gave me the typical bad side effects of upset stomach, bloating, bonking, cramps, etc.
Noel Lipana Anti-Fatigue Caps blew me away! Honestly, this wasn't my event so I looked at it like a really long training event. I decided to give Anti-Fatigue Caps a try. No muscle fatigue or soreness after 15+ hours? Amazing.
Matthew Zeier Combined with your unbeatable service, you provide products that top all other endurance supplements. Your attention to the contents and purity of your products is a unique characteristic. Your products are the best, and the outcomes of usage are exactly as stated.
Bryan J. Brosious Coming from someone who doesn't tolerate heat very well, Liquid Endurance has truly been my savior for races, as everywhere seems to be warmer than Alaska. I know that the Liquid Endurance helped me to have a GREAT race in Kona this past year, and I was really dreading that one!
Judy Abrahams Just a note to say I tried Race Day Boost this past week and, though I'm getting older...56 this year...was able to go even faster than last year and set a new course record on my 3-wheeled streamlined Quest velomobile
John "rocketman" Williams I can tell you from a race director's perspective, serving HEED relieves many of my worries about athletes experiencing dehydration problems. I consider serving HEED just as important as having trained medical staff on board.
Jeff Crumbaugh Hammer gel is my go-to energy solution for every activity I do. I depend on it heavily during the cycling season, but have recently discovered its benefits while skiing. Long days of backcountry telemark skiing will test the strongest endurance athlete and along with my avalanche gear, hammer gel is now a mainstay in my pack.
Amanda Riley I initially experienced the Hammer/E-Caps fueling system while racing with Team SOLE at the Explore Sweden Expedition Adventure Race in 2005. The competition was my first top-tier, international expedition race, one in which we'd be hammering for five to seven days over challenging terrain on very little sleep. The temperature rarely rose above freezing, and the paddling, trekking, mountaineering, and cross country skiing sections were formidable and imposing. Needless to say, proper fueling and recovery during the competition would make or break the race for us. Luckily, Team SOLE athletes were able to share Hammer Gel, HEED, Perpetuem, Race Caps Supreme, Recoverite, and Endurolytes with me. Boy was I impressed! The complete system provided a previously unknown supply of constant energy, hydration, and on-the-go recovery. I was hooked, and continued to train with Hammer/E-Caps, later racing with the products in expedition-length adventure races in Brazil, Patagonia, and Mexico. As Danelle Ballengee and I head into a full race schedule in 2006 with Team Spyder, we're stoked to have Hammer and E-Caps on our side for training, racing, and recovery.
Travis Macy If it hadn't been for HEED and your e-caps (Endurolytes) I never would have made it through Mussleman last July in 98 degree heat. I am a devoted customer.
Gretel Schuck Endurolytes are the best. It seems no matter what I tried during a race I would always have cramping issues at the end of long, hot days. Taking 3 Endurolytes at the start, as well as additional capsules during longer races really paid off. These helped me stop cramping, as well as not feeling as dehydrated the next day.
Mike Beers I have been using Premium Insurance Caps for 4 years and I don't see how I can do without them. I take 1 capsule in the morning, 1 with lunch, 3 after my workout and 1 with dinner. These are the best vitamin supplements I have ever used. My energy during the day Is noticeable and the truly aid in the recovery process.
Cameron Holland Just tried the new plain perpetuem, and we love it! The original flavor, while not objectionable under normal circumstances, is just not palatable for me during a race - anything sweet tasting just doesn't cut it. In fact, we add the electrolytes to the SE to give it a slightly salty taste so that it goes down better. But I think we'll like the new plain unflavored perpetuem. To me, it has a very slight hint of soy, which Steve describes as more of just milky flavor. Very similar to the Sustained Energy, with the fat content being evident in the the way it "feels" in my mouth. Having some fat content in a really long event is a big plus, and we are glad to be able to now incorporate the perpetuem into our fueling strategy. I recommend you folks give it a try, especially if you haven't enjoyed the original flavor.
Deb Pero I won a container of Perpetuem at a race last summer. Other than the name suggesting it is intended for long workouts or races, I knew nothing specific about it. However, I found that it really worked for me. The vanilla-orange flavor is unusual but, what tastes good sitting on the couch is very different from what tastes good in the saddle! When I go for a long ride, especially racing, I quickly get sick of the sweetness of conventional sports drinks. Perpetuem feels more like food, and now I know that it contains fat and protein so it really/ is/ more like food, which helps to keep me going in the 3^rd or 4^th hour of racing, when it really counts.
Alexandre Lussier Just wanted to pass on the news of a new marathon PR for this 39 year old sponsored athlete. In tough, windy conditions I managed to slice 2 minutes off my previous best and run a 2:55:35. I must credit my performance to the excellent range of e-caps products - namely race caps, race day boost, sustained energy, endurolytes, xobaline, hammer gel and recoverite. I've never been able to finish a marathon as strong as I finished yesterday. I ran within myself for 19 miles, battled the winds and tried to maintain an even effort. At 1minute 30seconds behind my 2:57:00 goal pace I decided to try and step up the pace and make a bold move for the finish. With 3 miles to go I was still slightly behind my 2:57:00 goal pace, but somehow managed to turn things around and gain 90 seconds in the last 5k. I can only attribute my success to race day boost which kept the lactic acid at bay, sustained energy (my pre-race breakfast), hammer gel for the constant supply of energy and endurolytes for keeping cramps away. I also can't believe how good my legs feel today - recoverite (the latest product I've added to my collection) has done it's job really well! Thanks everyone! Steve Speirs
Steve Speirs I used your Hammer Gel, HEED and Endurolytes at my first ½ Ironman last July in Racine, Wisconsin. They were a huge part of me finishing the triathlon in the 99 degree heat!
Joy Sales Steve, Brian, and Everybody at Hammer, Just wanted to drop you all a line and thank you for doing what you do, your products are superb. As you can see in the attached photo, even recumbent riders use hammer. My name is John Foote a member of the UMCA and an ultra cyclist for over twenty years, well sort of. I had 3 good years back in the 80's and then injured my back, hence the recumbent. For the last twenty years I haven't ridden at all due to 5 spine surgeries, the last being a cervical fusion a year ago. The good news is that last May I found the recumbent and your products. After training 3500 road miles last summer, and 170 trainer hours this winter I raced in the Sebring 12/24 hr Race this past February and qualified for RAAM with a 24 hr ride of 437 miles. This was my goal twenty years ago. So I want to thank you for your products and for sponsoring Ultra events. For the race I used Sustained Energy and Endurolytes, nothing more. No other food or water supply was needed. These two products worked perfectly. I was hoping you might find room on the web site or in the catalog for the picture. Could be your first recumbent photo. Thanks again, John Foote - Cust# 72359 Troy, Ohio RAAM Qualified
John Foote Steve, Just wanted you to know that I recieved the goodies from hammer gel and have the participation bags loaded up. I had not seen or used the new bar before so I took a couple of them and put in a 50 mile ride followed by 40 minute run, I was very impressed, the bar went down easy and did not upset the stomach at all, after the run I felt like I could have gone on...pretty good! This experience(s) ( I put in two ride/runs) allows me to endorse the product at our clinic after some first hand experience. Thank you again for your support. Kirk Rose, Event Coordinator, OAC
Kirk Rose Plain Perpetuem is great stuff! I used this for the first time today on a long trail run and I felt like I had an IV of Hammer Gel all day long! I'm going to be buying pounds and pounds of it! Love the non-taste!
Steve Pero My fuel of choice on training rides is Heed or Sustained Energy, combined in different proportions depending on the duration of the ride. I have used the Heed/Sustained Energy combo for rides in the 3 - 4 hour range with great success. I have also used Sustained Energy alone for rides over three hours, also with great success.
Jason Delmue I tried the chocolate chip Hammer Bars this weekend on a 5 hour run. I ate a bar every hour. My energy levels stayed even throughout the run. It was cold and blowing snow but the bars remained soft, not hard and frozen. The taste was great, not too sweet. I also really like that they are all organic.
Ronny Angell The product that I use and like the most is the Recoverite. I can tell the differences in my next workout, whether it is in afternoon workout after teaching a spin class that morning or the next day workout after training for 8-10 hrs on a long workout day.
Ronny Angell Any athlete not reading the information in your "Knowledge" section of the website is at a disadvantage. The articles you've gathered here are an invaluable source to any endurance athlete who's interested in improving and have saved me hours in research time...and I'm a reference librarian.
Kyle Dees I'd loaded with glycerol before with little effect. This time I used your Liquid Endurance exactly as your website directed. What a difference! I was hardly dehydrated after Ironman Coeur d'Alene last weekend and finished 3rd in the women's 50-54 age group.
