Users of the Herbalife24Fit Program

(I personally like taking Herbalife 24 Formula 1 Sport before a workout, but some people will drink half a shake before and half a shake afterwards, it's really up to personal preference and what type of training you're doing !)

Herbalife 24 Formula 1 Sport Usage:

Blend or stir 2 scoops of Formula 1 Sport with 8 fl oz (250ml) of water or semi-skimmed milk. Water is often a good option for athletes as many have a problem in digesting the milk lactose before and during the sports activity. Mixing shake with semi-skimmed milk and fruit provides some added carbohydrates. Without fruit, shake with semi skimmed milk has a calorie value = 219, if adding half a banana, would be an extra 55 calories. Herbalife 24 Formula 1 Sport is a low fat meal, it's a Creamy Vanilla Flavour 524g tub (UK and Ireland) or 780g tub (USA)

First Ironman in Wales using Herbalife 24 Sports Nutrition

The first Wales Ironman event was held on 11 September 2011 in Tenby which is a small Welsh seaside town in Pembrokeshire. Over 1500 men and women battled with some very extreme conditions as the Welsh coast was hit with the tail end of an Atlantic Hurricane.

Herbalife the worlds leading nutritional company asked athletes from around Europe to trial Herbalife 24 the new sports nutrition range.

Herbalife 24 sports nutrition range consists of 5 products designed for the 24 hour athlete or anyone leading a healthy active lifestyle.

James Davies (photo below) was one of over 700 people that trialled the products. He's a member of the South Wales Police Triathlon team and completed the event with a personal best time of 14 hours and 12 minutes (including transition)

Swim - 2.38 miles / 3.8 km = 1 hour 1 minute

Bike - 112.5 miles / 180 km = 7 hours 18 minutes

Run - 26.3 / 42.1 km = 5 hours 12 minutes

James said "Using the Herbalife24 range was a fantastic aid in training and competing in this event, I found the Herbalife 24 Formula 1 Sport and particularly the Herbalife24 Rebuild Endurance a massive help. I found my ability to train longer and harder was increased and my recovery after each session was vastly improved. I would recommend the entire product range but especially these two products."
