“Success at Ironman racing is largely dependant upon nutrition. that is why in my debut at the Ironman world Championships in Kona, I chose Fuel Belt to help me implement my nutrition plan.”

“My fuel belt has been a fantastic training tool, it not only helps me keep hydrated but enables me to recover faster as I'm not dehydrated at the finish of my training sessions, especially when I'm in a very hot humid climate. When you're out on a 2-3hr bush or trail run then there's no other option to not carry fluid, there's no bottles bouncing around, my fuelbelt fits snuggly to my body without hampering my running form. I have never done an Ironman without my fuel belt, it enables me to use my own fluid out on the course and I don't have to use something that I may not like, there are a lot of electrolyte drinks that don't agree with my stomach so I take on my own tried and true tested drinks!”

“FuelBelt has been great primarily in my racing. I am able to carry the products I use in training during the race and not rely on the products supplied by race directors and not what I am used to. During training during my longer runs I am able to carry the fuel and practice what I will be executing in the event. They are a cool product that I access many times during a week. For racing I would not start an Ironman event without my fuelbelt.”

“Fuel Belt products have made a HUGE difference in my races. I used to rely on the nutrition that was offered on the course, figuring that was easiest. I was plagued by terrible GI problems in nearly every Ironman. Now with Fuel Belt products, I can carry the nutrition that I need to have my best day out on the race course comfortably and easily!”

“On raceday without my fuel belt I wouldn't be able to use my own energy drink and for my racing this is essential. On long runs when I am training I also use my fuelbelt very often. It's so easy to use and again you have your energy drinks with you at all time.”

“It is important to make sure you do not deplete your body both in training and racing. Fuel Belt helps you perform at your best and to make sure you get the best out of your workout and able to get back at it the next day.”

“My FuelBelt allows me to train with my nutrition on hand and prepare well for race day. My FuelBelt is a vital part of my Ironman nutrition strategy as I can have all my needs on hand to power me to the finish line.”

“Fuel Belt allows me to easily carry the nutrition that I need to be successful in an endurance event whether that is in a race (70.3 or Ironman) or in training for those races.”

“Before I started using Fuel Belt products I would have to drive my run loop and place bottles out every 4 miles. This was time consuming and not as effective because I would have to stop every time I wanted to drink. Now I throw on the Helium 2, fill it with Powerbar Endurance and I am good to go. There is no stopping and I get to practice drinking and eating just like I do when I race.”

“Fuel Belt has helped me in training because I don't have to stop for drinks on my long runs! Also I believe that the Fuel Belt helps hold my running form and posture. In racing it helps me carry the nutrition that I train with and then that won't upset my stomach.”

“To race and train at a consistent and demanding level it is imperative to fuel properly during workouts. Fuel Belt products make this possible by providing a variety of comfortable and stylish equipment and gear that provide customization and the flexibility to meet the nutritional demands of both training and race day. Not only that they are comfortable and durable to meet my needs day after day.”

“Fuelbelt has reliable, smart products that always seem to fulfill my needs, sometimes before I even realized I had the need! The belt is the perfect solution for when I am going on a long run and don't want to loop back constantly to get my calories or fluids.”

“I've tried everything out there and Fuel Belt is the best system for my run needs. I use Fuel Belt because they're the best belt for the job. Back mounted hydration systems change my running gait, Fuel Belt is the most natural solution for a runner's needs. Vinu's the man!”

“Even before I won in Kona while carrying my own fuel on the run I fully understood the importance of proper fueling and hydration in long hard events. It wasn't until Fuel Belt came along though that the idea became a practical reality for most people in triathlons. I've been using Fuel Belts since Day 1. On most of my training sessions I don't have aid stations every few miles.  Many of my runs I don't see another person for an hour or more. I take everything I need in my Fuel Belt every run.”

“I spend my year following the sun to train, that means being in some very hot places at times. I couldn't get through my run training without a Fuel Belt. I carry my water and calories to get me through the miles and in addition clip my trusty Ipod to my belt to keep me boogieing along. I always have my keys and extra's tucked away in the pocket. With all this....I get through my training successfully and show up race day fit.”

“When I started working with FuelBelt, I have to admit that at first I was not too eager to wear a belt during my Ironman marathons, I now almost feel naked without it. It played an important role during the 2006 IM France where I placed second and certainly at the Embrunman Ironman where I won while setting a new course record. Being able to wear my own drinks and not having to rely entirely on the feeding zones brought a valuable level of comfort. I am therefore pleased to be associated with such a brand that precisely understands the needs of endurance athletes. Thank you.”
