When I did cramp I took on an extra e-Gel and hydrated with the e-Fuel and within 10 minutes or so the cramping went away. This product does what it says it does and I would recommend it to anyone that rides a bike or exerts themselves with endurance exercise’s.
The first time I used e-Gel instead of my usual energy gels was in a 50 km race and I finished 2nd in my age group. I’m prone to cramping but I had NONE, as well as not even the slightest twinge. I’m impressed with e-Gel and will switch exclusively to it in all future races as well as training. This is really a product that delivers what it promises.
I broke the golden rule and tried e-Gel for the first time on race day. I ran the Houston Marathon and it was a great experience – no stomach issues and no muscle cramping. Water in my bottle and an e-Gel every hour got me through the race. I’m not the fastest runner, but I set a PR!
I’m training for Ironman Florida and during the summer months here in Florida, long bike rides take me into some really hot and humid weather. I’ve been struggling for 6 weeks with cramping every time my ride hit 60-65 miles in length. I read about e-Fuel and after two rides of 80+ miles with no cramping, I’m a believer!
I have used e-Gel and e-Fuel for many years now and nothing compares to it! I initially tried the e-Gel as a mid-distance runner, and for the first time didn’t experience stomach cramping. During my collegiate soccer career, I found e-Fuel to be the best drink to prevent heat exhaustion – which playing in the humid Florida heat was hard to escape!
I just completed my first across the state of Florida (coast to coast) bike ride – a one day event 170 miles, Sunrise to Sunset. I finished my 170 miles using 7 e-Gel packs, my ride took 10 hours to complete, averaging 17 mpg, facing a 10-15 mph head wind the entire day.
I recently ran my first half-marathon and was having trouble during my long-run training with quad cramping. I tried various products without much improvement. I came across e-Gels late in training and only got to try them once before the race, but during the race (and since) they worked great. I took them 45 minutes in (5 miles) just as i started to feel the cramping, and immediately felt relief. Took a second at 97 minutes (11 miles-lesson learned: find out where water stops are before the race) when my legs were really tight; took a little bit but they once again relaxed and i was able to pick back up to my normal pace.
I used e-Gels exclusively and exactly as directed in training for the Lakefront Marathon. This was my fourth marathon and I did not expect to PR, but just to complete it well. With the help of e-Gels taken at miles 2, 7, 13, 18, and 23, I took 10 minutes off of my marathon time and never hit the ‘wall’ or cramped as I had done in previous events. Some guy laughed at me at the start asking why I had so many energy gels. I told him I had a plan and I was sticking to it. I’m pretty sure I passed him somewhere around mile 22.
40 miles into a 56 mile ride in the desert with two big hills I started cramping, and had to stop several times. The next week I did the same ride with e-Gel and had no cramping despite it being over 100 degrees. My hydration was the same, so I have little doubt the e-Gel played a big part in keeping me going that day.
I am a very active 60 year old women that bikes, kayaks, skis and distance walks, AND has been a diabetic for 40 years. I decided to enter my first marthon this summer. I was fortunate in discovering this absolutely wonderful product. I take a E-Gel packet to begin and then every hour and check my blood sugar. With the use of E-Gel I can keep my blood sugars up and not bonk. A very important thing to a diabetic! I feel so good the whole time I am walking and finish my walks with so much energy to spare, I manage to clean my house etc. I LOVE IT!.
I should mention that I no longer have leg cramps because of the potassium levels in this product. I have been spreading the word to all my friends,
