It's All About Hydration

29 Apr 2009 12:02

One of the key things for performance sports, whether that's bouldering or cycling, is making sure you're hydrated. This is pretty common knowledge of course but that doesn't stop most climbers being rubbish at actually doing it.


We've just started stocking Nuun hydration tablets in The Climbing Works and for the next few weeks we're doing a special offer on them to help introduce them to our customers. Buy a tub of Nuun (£5) and get a FREE Climbing Works water bottle with it (worth £2.50).


What is Nuun?

For those who know nothing about Nuun, here's the basic rundown:


- It comes in little tablet form with one tablet turning one 1/2 litre bottle of water into a complex electrolyte drink that recharges your salts. It also tastes refreshing and is more efficiently absorbed than water alone or most sports drinks on the market.

- It doesn't have sugar, carbs or artificial colouring. It does have sodium, potassium, magnesium & calcium.

- The Cheese's have been using it with Percy on his bike, Sam on his intense training regime for the Frankenjura and me (Bri) out on the crag on warm sunny days. We all like it and rate it highly. I had it with me on Gogarth on a glorious sunny day and both my partner and I both noticed that we drank our water slower and felt better than we thought we would on such a beautiful day.


You can read all the technical info and more reasons why Nuun works at Nuun's website here but it does work so why not buy some, get a free water bottle and be converted.
