From wrestling matches and doubles tennis in middle school to varsity in high school; these two sports have been a part of growing up. I should also mention the pickup football and basketball I used to play each week with my friends. As a high school wrestler my fitness and nutrition were a key to doing well. The diet was challenging but after weigh-ins it was time to rehydrate and energize—often with Gatorade. Back nearly ten years ago I understood that my success against my opponents on the wrestling mat would play a significant impact on my future today. These days I am not playing competitively, but I do travel full-time joining in extreme activities around the world (downhill mountain biking today in Rotorua, New Zealand). What did I drink along the way? I chose to drink gatorade as my sports fuel.
