Turbo+ — Fuelling Indoors to Make You Stronger Outdoors

Many of us are training indoors now more than ever, but do you need to fuel? And how can you stop your body from heating up too much and impacting your performance? Our Turbo+ products contain active menthol that creates a cooling sensation in your body, whilst fuelling these intense sessions with carbohydrate ensures maximum performance benefits.

Why fuel your indoor training sessions? To become a better athlete.

Fuelling these indoor sessions with menthol in Turbo+ can increase your performance by up to 5%. Becoming stronger indoors will take your athleticism to the next level outside on the road.

Mix Turbo+ Powder with water to create a refreshing drink that hydrates and fuels your body while keeping you cool. This isotonic energy drink is specifically designed to swirl around your mouth for 10-15 seconds at regular intervals during your session in order to hydrate, power up and cool down.

Turbo+ Powder is a unique blend of carbohydrates and menthol extract to meet your in-session fuelling requirements. The body can oxidise 1g of carbohydrates per minute and three scoops of Turbo+ powder mixed with 500ml of water contains 60g of carbs, providing the optimal amount of fuel for one hour of exercise!

Top tip: If your session is short, half an hour, for example, you can mix just one and a half scoops with water and still feel your performance measurably increase. You will feel stronger, breathe better and tire less easily.

Turbo+ Gel is a carbohydrate energy gel containing a blend of caffeine and amino acids with menthol extract. It delivers energy, fights fatigue and reduces feelings of thermal discomfort. All this combined improves your performance. And that’s not all: the caffeine in Turbo+ Gel can improve cognitive function and ensure you stay mentally focused to reach your training goals. Our gel is designed to be consumed 30-60 minutes before exercise for optimal performance.

Both Turbo+ Powder and Turbo+ Gel come in two fruity flavours: blueberry freeze and cool citrus.

The Turbo+ range is perfect for indoor cycling or running. These sessions can increase thermal stress and one of the main contributors to the early onset of fatigue in hot environments is an increased feeling of discomfort. Turbo+ helps you handle heat stress better and to stay cool so you can work harder for longer. The menthol extract delivers a refreshing and cooling sensation and consuming menthol during exercise also makes it easier to breathe. Exercising in the heat also increases the need for carbohydrates as fuel. The whole range is isotonic, pH-neutral and gut-friendly.

If you’re not fuelling indoors, you’re missing out on maximising your ability.
