"Daily life alone is taxing on the body, then add in hours of training and you are bound to eventually get worn out.
As an athlete, I am constantly putting my body through stress, both physically and mentally. I know the importance of recovery and take it very seriously. I recover on my recovery days and train on my training days. I was doing everything I knew to do but could feel that I was not only reaching a plateau but starting to regress in my training. Being in tuned with my body, I knew I was becoming unbalanced and was fearful I was on a slippery slope to burning out.
I had met Greg a couple of years ago while out on a ride and asked him about Liv9 and his product. It all made perfect sense to me but I felt like my body was performing at its optimal level and I was "good". I have never been one to take vitamins or minerals and focused on trying to receive everything my body needed through healthy eating etc. Fast forward to when I started to no longer feel "good"...
A few months ago I was beginning to constantly feel lethargic and recovery was taking longer than usual. Nothing had significantly changed in my training regiment and I couldn't figure out why I wasn't feeling good. Then I remembered my conversation I had with Greg that day out on the bike. I couldn't track down his name fast enough!
Fast forward to now. Not only did I get back to where I was when I was feeling my best but now I know that what I thought was "my best" wasn't my best after all.
Liv9 is "founded on the principles of innovation, purity, quality and service". As I read these principles, I cannot help but realize that this is exactly what I expect out of my body. A perfect match."
