    Background

    Why did Beet It choose Michael?

    Michael is a very fit man! Not only does he have to keep fit for his job but he needs to understand fitness to train his colleagues. Since taking on Triathlons Michael has had to take his nutrition incredibly seriously. He has been using our Beet It shots for about a year and has been on our Elite package since summer 2014. He is still in the early stages of his Triathlon career but shows great promise. He has been a great supporter of Beet It Sport since he discovered our brand and is a strong advocate of the science behind its success. We are proud to be supporting him in and showcasing him this month.

    Interview

    How long have you been in the Army?

    Being in the army has made me a more confident person especially within sport. I now have the backing that I never had or would not have on civvi street.

    Have you always been into fitness?

    Nope, never, not until I joined the army.

    Why triathlon?

    Because I believe it to be the hardest sport one discipline is not enough “Tri-ath-el-ete” (a person who does not understand one sport is hard enough) 🙂

    How hard is it to train as a triathlete on top of regular army fitness?

    Extremely difficult unless you manage time efficently

    1. Consistency is key.

    Why do you use Beet It and how has it helped you?

    I use Beet It to enhance my performance through nitrate supplementation, allowing more oxygen to flow through my system i also use beet-it as one of my 5 a day

    How important to you is it that it is all natural?

    Extremely, if it was artificial there would be no Beet It. Beetroot is from the ground. Natural sugar is fine i.e. fructose however additives wreck lives 🙂
