TRAINING & RACING NUTRITION

If you’re a trail runner you know that a large part of those long grueling runs is the mental game! When you’re out in the forest pushing yourself to your limits, the last thing you want to be thinking about is your Nutrition.
Most athletes can recall a time during a race they’ve had a bad experience which caused them to DNF or perform much poorer than expected. Athletes want to go further and go faster without worrying about their nutrition intake or gut distress. Fixx Nutrition has developed a range of products to take the trickiness away. The products include CrampFix, a rapid muscle cramp relief product that will come in handy in those long runs or when the elevation is too much for your calves to handle. For an energy boost we also have our Cold Brew Espresso Shots and our Fuel X, an ALL-IN-ONE Endurance Fuel.

What Our Customers Are Saying

If you want to fuel smart then use Fuel X. I have trouble with my gut but since using Fuel X and lots of it on 3-4hr rides I haven’t had any dramas with my gut. The taste is amazing but not too sweet, it easily dissolves in a few shakes of your water bottle. Do yourself a favour and fuel with Fuel X.

What Our Customers Are Saying

‘After running in the GC30, I enjoyed the Fuel x pro offered at the aid stations. So after the race I went and bought a packet to try on my long runs. Fantastic is the only word I can use. Last weekend I ran 36kms (build up to Gold Coast Marathon), and would normally make up 2 litres of electrolytes and have about 5 gels. This run, I needed nothing apart from the Fuel X Pro. Pretty simple, the drink I mixed up kept me hydrated and gave me enough carbs for my run that I didn’t need even 1 gel. At the end of the run I had enough energy to continue (if needed). That has never happened before, even after taking gels. Wow, I know what product I will be using from now on :-)’

Fuelling 100k with Fuel X

‘In preparation for the 100km SCC, I started loading up on electrolytes the week before the race, having 2 serves of Fuel X per day with my meals. During the race I had 11 soft flasks, one was just water as a backup, the other 10 were all Fuel X. I had two soft flasks of each flavour, with about 2 scoops in the 500ml and 600ml flasks, and 1.5 scoops in the 350ml flasks. I mixed the flavours up so that I would have something different each leg of the race to avoid taste fatigue. I also considered when I would need to hydrate more in anticipation of hotter weather. Approximately, I needed 500ml of water with 2 scoops of Fuel X per 10km, if the weather got warmer I’d need more from about midday onwards. To make it easier for my support crew, I had all the soft flasks filled with the correct amount of Fuel X and sorted into the checkpoint bags, the crew would just fill it with water, give it a shake and load me up. I felt energised the whole race!

FAQs

How can I sample the different products?

We have small and large sample packs available to purchase containing a mixture of our products. Check them out here.

How does CrampFix work?

CrampFix works rapidly to fix and prevent muscle cramps by targeting the overactive nerves that are causing the muscles to cramp. We don’t know exactly what causes muscle cramps but we know how to fix them! There is an association between premature muscle fatigue, exercise induced muscle cramp, stimulation of sensory nerves and interruption of alpha neutron (nerves) firing.

A mouth-to-nerve-to muscle connection.

When should I drink CrampFix?

Drink one shot of CrampFix 5-10 minutes before activity to prevent cramps.

Drink when the cramp strikes or at first signs of cramp for rapid relief. If the muscle cramp is not relieved after a few minutes, repeat dose.

What does CrampFix taste like?

One of the main ingredients is acetate (vinegar) which has a very strong and dominating taste. Most athletes find they get used to the taste after using the product a few times.

Remember, if CrampFix tasted good, it wouldn’t work!

When should I use Fuel X?

This product is designed to be used during training or racing to hydrate and replenish your body of the nutrients lost as well as provide a source of energy.

What does Fuel X taste like?

Fuel X is an all natural product with no added sweeteners. This product was designed to be very mild to avoid the ever so common flavour fatigue athletes hate. Fuel X has no aftertaste and comes in 5 different flavours so there is something for everyone!

Flavours include: Lemon-Lime, Pear, Tropical, Matcha Green Tea and Nude (Unflavoured).

Can I mix Fuel X with gels, bars, chews etc?

You can mix the Fuel X range with other sports products though Fuel X contains everything you need to stay energized, hydrated, and replenished. 

No sticky gels, bars, or chews are needed! All Fuel X products are a complete source of nutrition.

What is the difference between Fuel X and Fuel X Pro?

Fuel X contains all the electrolytes, hydration & energy you need to keep you going! The electrolytes in Fuel X are formulated to replace everything you lose during exercise!

Fuel X Pro is a superior source of nutrition and contains the same ingredients as Fuel X PLUS premium amino acids for improved performance and endurance.
