Cycling / Hiking - Hammering Since: 1998
Hello, my name is Stephan Rosen and I have been a Hammer athlete since 1998 when introduced to the products. I first used them (Hammer Gel and Endurolytes) on a warm century ride and was wowed with how I felt and performed.
At about that same time I began riding with a rowdy group, all of whom were younger and with less demands (e.g., family & work) in their lives. I knew that I needed to optimize my training, fueling, supplementation, and recovery to perform at or above their level; that’s where the Hammer Nutrition products became the equalizer. I am a huge advocate of no simple sugars, preservatives, and artificial colors; that coupled with proven formulas has made all the difference.
I have used their products daily since that time, whether as daily supplements, and to compliment any physical activity whether it be cycling (my primary), gym work, trail running, hiking, swimming, etc. I am thankful to have discovered Hammer Nutrition, their staff, and fellow athletes, many of whom I am proud to call friends.
