Alexis Smith, Professional Triathlete - San Francisco, CA
As a professional triathlete I put a lot of miles on my body and to relieve the muscular discomfort I consistently used the Original FlexPower. I am now eight months pregnant with my first child and although I'm not training as much as I was, I still exercise daily and use FlexPower Active Woman to help relieve calf cramping that is associated with pregnancy. The smell is light and very pleasant and the gradual heat feels great on my calves. I especially like the Homeopathic addition of arnica. I want to be sure that when I put a lotion or cream on that it is safe during this time and I believe that FlexPower Active Woman has truly made a product for women who are looking for a more natural pain relieving cream.
PacWest Athletics - San Francisco, CA
With a roster stacked with USA Triathlon All-Americans, PacWest has formed one of the most talented triathlon teams in the country -- and we all rely on FlexPower! In 2009, Team PacWest dominated the Northern and Central California race scene and we’re hoping to repeat our performance in 2010. The season was highlighted with over (90) individual Age Group podium finishes; nine (9) Ironman World Championship qualifiers; 1st Place at Wildflower Long Course & Olympic Distance Team Competition, the largest triathlon on the West Coast; 1st Place at the Folsom Triathlon Club Challenge; 2nd Place USA Triathlon Southwest Regional Club Championships. Unlike most racing teams, athletes on Team PacWest train together and compete together. Thus, we have a strong bond between teammates and a positive, competitive environment that we thrive on. Thank you FlexPower for helping us continue to train at a high level. www.PacWestAthletics.com
Chad Aichs, World-Class Strength Athlete - Sparks, NV
Being a world class powerlifter takes its toll on the body. No matter how good your training is your still putting tons of stress on your muscle, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Thats because our body wasn't necessarily designed to squat 1100+ lbs or bench 800+lbs. So sore muscles and tendons are just part of the game, but FlexPower definitely helps me push past them. It helps me get my muscles and joints warmed up faster and the heat produces helps work through the pain. Plus FlexPower contains MSM and Glucosamine that gets directly to the effected area to speed recovery. I compete at the highest level and need the best sports creme available, FlexPower is that creme! www.chadaichs.com/home2.htm
Uli Bromme, Team Sport Beans/NTTC Pro- Boulder, CO
I used the FlexPower Active Woman after a long run and was positively surprised at its non-greasy feel and subtle smell, as some of the products out there can be quite overpowering. It also wasn't too strong of a cold/hot contrast when applied, but rather felt like a slow gradual heating of the muscles in my legs.
Kelly Brush, founder Kelly Brush Foundation - South Burlington , VT
After I got hurt in 2006 I immediately wanted to get back out there and be active. A few months later I got my hand-cycle and I was so pumped to be able to get some fresh air in my lungs and feel the burn in my arms. But, it wasn’t long before I had some soreness from the longer rides. When I was introduced to FlexPower, I was so relieved. Now, I put it on before a ride, let it warm up my arms a bit, and the soreness is gone. I have tubes of FlexPower all around my house and whenever I feel sore I just rub some on and it goes away. Thank YOU! www.kellybrushfoundation.org
V.E. Bixenstine, Novelist/Poet/World Champion - Kent, OH
After one of my long workouts, which includes running, bicycling, weight lifting and playing handball, you can only imagine how sore my muscles and joints can get. Having used many ointments and creams, I came upon Flex - Power. Now, I use it everyday for all of my body aches. There is nothing like it!
Evan Evans, Hopkins Honda Women's Cycling Team/Code 3 - San Francisco, CA
As a lifetime highly competitive athlete, I've tried just about every goo in a tube to help the aches and pains of hardcoretraining and racing. But now that I'm staring my fifth decade in the face, I've found that being a woman competitive cyclist "of a certain age" means that I need all the help I can get to keep my body working at full capacity. I was recently introduced to your product and I can honestly say that FlexPower is the best sport creme I've ever used. The minute I applied it to my chronically sore lower back and recently separated shoulder, I knew FlexPower was not your momma's sport creme. The warming and relaxing effect of the creme truly amazed me. FlexPower has now become part of my daily arsenal against all those aches and new/old injuries. This stuff ROCKS! Those youngsters better watch out next season. No bull brah, your creme lets me sleep through the night. Not to mention, I ride a mountain bike for work 27 hours a week and when its 34 degrees outside, my muscles never get stiff or cold.
Steve Pulcinella, CSCS - Glenolden, PA
Being a 45 year old strength athlete isn't easy. The toll of lifting, pushing, pulling and throwing heavy weights is extremely damaging to my joints. I look for every advantage I can get to stay in the game and keep up with the younger guys. FlexPower is definitely a staple in my training bag. I use it before workouts to help warm up my muscles and joints and I especially like it for after workout massages for that soothing recovery. I also own a strength training gym and recommend it to all my athletes. www.ironsport.com
Ice Chamber Kettlebell Girls
FlexPower helps accelerate the warm-up process, which is critical to our sport. We use it to loosen tight muscles and stiff joints so that we can be more mobile and agile when we train or compete! www.ickbgirls.com
Buddy Van Vugt- New York, NY
As an Iron man tri-athlete and mixed-martial artist, daily wear and tear of the muscles and joints is nothing new. FlexPower has given me a fresh opportunity to ride the longer rides and run the longest runs. Soreness and stiffness are no longer part of my training. I apply FlexPower pre and post races and in between training sessions. I always feel fresh and ready to go because of it! Using FlexPower has helped me go to the next level, well recovered and smiling! The truth is that FlexPower smells and feels great. Thank you FlexPower! I recommend this product to both athletes and wellness aficionados alike! www.gothamglobalfitness.com
Sean Green, Former NBA/Euroleague Basketball Player,
Triathlete and Founder of NYC based Green Storm Racing Team - New York, NY
FlexPower works wonders! After seeing the ads featuring Jason Kidd and knowing that my boy Steve Nash endorsed the product, I was very intrigued. I contacted Bejan and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I received the care package and started using it twice a day on my "post op" knee that has been nagging me for the last month. Do I need to say it? The knee pain is gone and I'm back on the court and thinking about making a comeback! I'm not the only one that is sold on it... my athletes are already singing it's praises. I'm glad that Green Storm Racing and FlexPower have teamed up... and I hope it is a very long relationship. Thanks Bejan and thanks FlexPower!!!
Jacqueline Cruz, Defender on the WPSL Storm - San Francisco, CA
After my game I tried the product right and it started working after 5 or 10 minutes and lasted for about 45 minutes. It was a very nice and gradual warming of my knee. I loved it! Also, it did not feel like a rush of heat from harsh chemicals (like other products on the market) either. The smell was great, too! Overall, A+ product! Since I am an avid organic/natural product and food user, I would definitely love some more of this!
Alli Rainey- Ten Sleep, WY
Properly warming up and encouraging rapid muscle recovery after activity are both crucial elements oftop rock climbing performance. Using FlexPower before climbing helps my muscles warm up faster, thanks to its gentle warming ability. Following a day of climbing or a hard training session in the gym, FlexPower provides soothing relief from muscle pain while encouraging quicker recovery. And perhaps best of all, FlexPower actually smells good!
Team Jackson's Women's MMA - Albuquerque, NM
FlexPower really set itself apart from other products of its kind because of they way it feels and smells. Muscle pain relief is of upmost importance in MMA training where the training itself is often rougher of the body than the 15 minute fight itself. I love the way it feels on my skin and the smell does not turn off the entire gym when I use it during practice. In fact no one even knows I wear it there until I reveal my secret. I often feel energized once I rub it into my skin when my sore muscles relax and feel relief.
Colorado Flash Racing Team - Denver, CO
The Colorado Flash RAAM (Race Across America) cycling team loves the soothing relief from FlexPower but the warming quality at 10,000 feet at 2:30am (Cutler Pass) saved our legs! Whether you're biking around the block or cycling across the country, FlexPower will get you there. It helps to warm up our tired muscles after hours of riding and gets us back on the road.
Kells Celtic FC - Seattle, WA
A Men's Soccer Club out of Seattle Washington completely endorses FlexPower. We play all year around and it is especially nice for the sore muscles in the fall/winter. We love it! I have had a nasty hamstring tear. Coming back from that (injury) FlexPower is a perfect supplement to my care. GO SOUNDERS.
Vanessa Simon, Team Bridges Inc. - Newton, KS
After getting samples of Flex Power at a volleyball tournament EVRYONE on my softball team was hooked on it. They said things like "This blows the other stuff out of the water" and "Its hot and I like it, I've never had anything like it." Our softball team was headed to State Mixed "D" tournament in Kansas and I had one guy on the team say he wasn't going to play unless I could get him enough samples to take a bath in. haha. So just incase he was serious I went out a bought him some. Thanks FlexPower! We took 2nd place at the tournament he pitched the whole time (6 hard games). Our no name team took runner-up and qualified for nationals in Las Vegas. We are so very excited to have played so good and went from being 156th to now 8th in rankings.
Gregory Howard - Brentwood, CA
I have literally had been looking for FlexPower at every race my wife ran since last year’s See Jane Run Marathon. I have had four back surgeries in the last five years. I have been dealing with chronic pain since 1998. In that time, I have tried massage, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, pain management, more medication that a body should ingest, and every version of topical pain relief gel or spray that I could find. Absolutely nothing has worked like the FlexPower performance sports cream. The clean smell is a bonus, but the real value is in how it heats me from the inside out. I use it to help me cope with the pain during the day, and use it to allow me to work on my elliptical trainer. I particularly enjoy the sensation of finishing a workout, and then jumping in my Jacuzzi. Your product creates a warming sensation that just clears away the pain. Also, I think the active women’s cream with the aloe, green tea and arnica works even better than the original.
Steven Khuong, CSCS - Richmond, CA
Co-Founder of the Ice Chamber, Master Coach and Master Trainer World Kettlebell Club
FlexPower is wonderful for both pre and post workout applications! We use it prior to dynamic warm-ups and after training during the recovery phase. It's a one of a kind product that feels great without smell of typical pain relief creams. www.icechamber.com
Forward Motion Race Club Elite team – Danville, CA
Our FMRC Elite Team, comprised of 20 incredible amateur runners and tri-athletes, ranging in age from 16 - 62 have all come to rely on Flex Power before and after training and days. The warming effect prepares each of us for the "battle" that will ensue on the race course each time we toe the line. So far, with the aid of Flew Power, six of our eleven tri-athletes are headed to the Ironman and/ 70.3 World Championships. Throughout 2009 we have captured 35 age group wins, and nine overall wins. Without Flex Power, working on our muscles, we all wouldn't be able to race at such a high caliber week after week. Thanks you for all you do for us Flex Power. www.forwardmotionraceclub.com
Jerry Dunn, America's Marathon Man - San Francisco, CA
I've been running for 35 years and have logged over 50,000 miles. Just ran 65 miles, non stop, to celebrate my 65th birthday and Flex Power was with me the entire way. It had my back. www.LeanHorse.com
Dave Rhody - San Francisco, CA
Twenty-seven years of producing fitness events has taken its toll on my body. FlexPower helps keep me going, keeping me on my feet and helping me recover. After a recent ankle sprain I was faced with a 12-hour day on my feet for a race production. Apply FlexPower to my ankle in the days leading up to it and on the morning of the run did it. It soothed the pain and has promoted healing.
Joyce Hueston - Indianapolis, IN
I'm not a sports person, just an ordinary woman of 67 years of age. I have severe muscle spasms that I believe are being brought on by my medications but I am not convincing my doctor of this. My hands, wrists, legs, ankles, back and everywhere else will spasm at one time. I grab FlexPower and put it on like body lotion with help. It will be no more than ten minutes and the spasms are gone. I would do without food if it were necessary just to have FlexPower. Please do not quit making it.
Rachel Sears Casanta,
Professional Triathlete - San Francisco, CA
Long course triathlon training is very demanding on the muscles and joints. To be the best I can, I need to train consistently day in and day out. FlexPower helps me be able to execute my daily training regimen. I use it both before and workout sessions to help alleviate back pain and for daily 'ouchies.' www.hypercat.com
Alameda Hornets Varsity Football - Alameda, CA
Thank you FlexPower!!! Throughout the season, we beat each other up during 2-A-Day practices, rip our muscles into shape in the weight room, and play hard against every team. In the end, all of us suffered from some sort of muscle ache or pain. Before FlexPower we would either just deal with the pain, or use some smelly sports cream that would just stink up the whole classroom. Now, we finally have something that actually works & smells good- FlexPower. We all use FlexPower on our knees and elbows before any workout, practice, or game to warm up. It keeps us loose and ready to perform like warriors. We also like that we can walk 2 blocks over to Longs Drugs and buy it anytime. GO HORNETS!!!
Rachel Main, PacWest Triathlete - Richmond, CA
I've used it (FlexPower Active Woman) coming out of the shower and after tough workouts for recovery; I intend to use it on sore muscles before working out to help warm them up.
Lori Lee Lown, Founder & Coach Velo Girls - San Francisco, CA
FlexPower Active Woman is the bomb! I just camped in the mountains for 8 days, riding mountain passes, running up the hills pushing riders on their bikes, and generally abusing my body. I was so happy I packed that little green tube of FlexPower. Great job on the new product.
Michael Wright, Seoul Synergy - Seoul, Korea
During the Tour de Korea 2010 (9 day bicycle stage race), the FlexPower Performance & Recovery was awesome. The team loved it; as we all had NO issue with any soreness while using FlexPower. FlexPower got us ready each day for performance and each night for recovery.
Eli Cohen (REI Product Expert) - Austin, TX
In 2000, I tore my ACL two weeks before the regional XC championships and spent my senior track season watching from the sidelines. As I headed off to college, I decided to hang up my running shoes, indefinitely. Six years later, after a lot of hard work, dedication, and determination, I returned from the endurance athlete’s underworld and began competing again. However, I still favored the knee and feared that it would nag me for the rest of my life.
About a year and a half ago, I received a box of FlexPower samples to hand out to mystaff. I took a few samples for myself, rubbed it on my knee and IT band before a workout, and never looked back! The knee pain is gone and I’m competing with more intensity than I ever thought possible. With the help of FlexPower, I’ve enjoyed tremendous success in triathlon, adventure racing, and distance running - podiuming and even capturing a team title this past year. As a serious (or perhaps insane) endurance athlete, it’s not uncommon to compete in three races over a ten day span, but FlexPower keeps my legs fresh and does a fantastic job aiding in recovery and alleviating all the aches and pains.
I highly recommend this product and I continue to hand out samples to teammates, co-workers, and customers. Thank you FlexPower, for keeping me healthy and allowing me to GO BIG day in and day out!!!
Margot Hair, Cancer Survivor, "Best of U.S." Tri-Athlete - St. Paul, MN
The day after my first triathlon in July 2007, I received the dreaded phone call from mydoctor that I was “sick” and needed to start aggressive treatment immediately. It has been a daily struggle to keep focused on my new passion of triathlon and I credit that focus with my improving health today and my unexpected win at the Best of the US National Amateur Triathlon Championship in Tempe, AZ. Coupled with severe asthma and complicated food and chemical allergies, my body has to work extra hard to achieve and maintain an elite level of fitness. Needless to say, I demand products that are of the highest quality just to maintain the delicate balance in my body. FlexPower delivers! My co-workers are also very appreciative of the smell after my grueling lunchtime workouts!
George Thomas - Hood River, OR
FlexPower has become a regular part of Terri and my training program. A late in life baby left us tired and more out of shape than we've ever been. It's amazing how fast one loses fitness and how long it takes to get it back. At 46 I'm also finding a lot more twinges in the neck, shoulders, lower back and knees after a workout. FlexPower has worked wonders for us.
Endurance Specialist, USA Triathlon Coach, NASM - PES CES, ACE – CPT, AFAA – CPT - San Rafael, CA
I am more than impressed with the quality and effectiveness of FlexPower. I was having pain after knee surgery which made it difficult to get the most out of my rehabilitation program. My friend, Gunnar Peterson, introduced me to the FlexPower by tossing me a sample in his Beverly Hills studio. Within minutes of applying FlexPower, my leg felt warm, pain free, and remained so throughout my training session. It has become a fixture in my performance cycling, running biomechanics, and triathlon workshops and classes. FlexPower is now the only sports crème that I recommend to my athletes. FlexPower is made with top quality ingredients and no extra scent or additives other than what is truly necessary. Proven results from multiple athletic sectors as well as my own positive experience gives me the confidence to endorse a great product. Try it ! You’ll be happy you did. www.shaunnaughton.com
Midge Kerr, Triathlete - Moorestown, NJ
I fell in love with Flex Power the first time I used this amazing product. I use it pre and post activity and it allows me to never miss a workout due to an injury or sore muscle. I have multiple tubes of Flex Power and keep it on my dresser, in my triathlon bag and in my car! I highly recommend Flex Power because it is a great product, not to mention a great company that supports many worthy causes in our communities.
Tim Kerr, Triathlete - Moorestown, NJ
After a 13 year career in the NHL and multiple injuries and surgeries, I have found
Flex Power to be extremely helpful and an integral part of my daily fitness program.
Kevin Stephens - Buffalo Grove, IL
This past summer I was late arriving to our state championship road race in Illinois. After registering and getting the bike ready, I had less than five minutes to get to the start line. I knew I couldn't get in a warm up ride, so I decided to use some FlexPower on my legs as a substitute. I could feel the effect of the cream immediately as it soaked in and my legs felt fresh and loose as the race started. The race was hard and filled with attacks and counter-attacks, yet I was able to have a good race in support of my teammate. As the lead group approached the finishing straight, I was able to help my teammate get to the front where he opened his sprint for the win! I have no doubt that without the FlexPower I would not have had as good a race on that day. Thanks!
NPC Figure Competitior - San Francisco, CA
I love FlexPower! Sitting down at a desk job after a hard workout leads to cold, sore muscles. FlexPower helps keep my muscles warm when I'm not active, and my cubemates never smell me out!
I appreciate my health, and I appreciate being able to indulge in a hobby that makes my heart sing and that I can share with my family. Nothing feels better than FlexPower rubbed into my muscles after some heavy lifting! The intense warming sensation keeps my muscles warm and ready for the next session. FlexPower is hands-down the best sports cream on the planet. Not only does it make me feel good, but it actually smells great, too.
Les Walgreen - Chicago, IL
I was in a car accident in 2003 that eventually lead to me having surgery on my C3-C6 vertebrae (neck). I am still in pain every day and have tried acupuncture to massage therapy. Both of those are great, but in a day or two the pain starts coming back in both my neck and upper back. A few weeks ago, a great guy sent me some FlexPower to try. A little reluctant at first, I decided to give it a shot. Well, this stuff works! It works so well in fact that I now use it everyday. It works so well that it has become the very first product that I have decided to personally represent and help bring FlexPower to the rest of the world.
Not many products ever stand for what they say they are, but FlexPower does. Integrity is very important to me and FlexPower holds up to it.
- Reno, NV
I used your product after racing Pro at Escape From Alcatraz and I was very happy with your product! I was sore in the calves and shins mainly because of the sand running and after using your product my legs felt great!!
FlexPower is awesome for warming up my muscles before rides and it is so good for after racing, when my muscles are screaming for some stretching and a hot bath- the cream is a great on the spot solution
Tim Hacker - Mesa, AZ
I am a half-ironman distance triathlete that has been training and racing over the past three years. FlexPower allows me to recover fast and get back on track. I have used it while training to help warm up. The warming sensation is long lasting and comfortable. FlexPower keeps working long into my workouts. I use FlexPower after long hard training runs and rides to help recover. I would recommend Flexpower to anyone needing relief from sore muscles, aches and pains. I have fit FlexPower into my routine of running, I rub it in my legs and knees just before putting my shoes on.
Don Sheff - San Francisco, CA
I was 13 years old, my father died at 47 (heart attack). I ran track, cross-country and marathons. Vowing to keep a healthy heart. I was obviously inspired, with many running miles in and on my body, the classic, chronic, over use syndrome was surfacing at 49. All the injuries, and broken bones over the years were slowly creeping into my muscles and joints reminding me of my abuses, even with tons of ice used over the years. Or, so I thought until 5 years ago. A co-worker in health care introduced me to FlexPower.
Now at 54, FlexPower has returned my youthful mobility and high level of pursuit beyond expectations for my age. I feel 28 again, my best marathon form.
Now, the passion of cycling has over taken/replaced my running. With scenic Marin county roads, (blame me for switching to the bike?) long training rides over hundreds of tough hilly miles, I am back! I am enjoying, in a "salubrious" sense, the challenge of hill climbs and centuries, Mt. Diablo, Mt Tam, and Marin double century to name a few. I know, FlexPower has allowed me to take this body back in time. I am thankful for such a great product formula and method of delivery. A note of comment from a pro cyclist I have shared FlexPower with, "You know were it is working when you take a shower, it is hot!"
Sharing FlexPower and the new ride!!! You guys are the best!
Julia Grice - Boulder, CO
I came across the FlexPower table at VeloSwap in Denver and decided to give it a try since my back and knees were killing me from standing all day. I have fallen in LOVE with your product. The first time I tried it just out of the shower it truly felt like I had a heating pad on my back. What surprised me the most was how long it lasted! It's been great for my knees on some of the steeper hiking trails and I am looking forward to using it in when I go snowshoeing this winter. My parents have arthritis and I'm excited to put FlexPower in their stocking this year so they can try it too. FlexPower back then.
Bodybuilding and Figure Competitior - San Jose, CA
It wasn’t until 2007 that I started to use FlexPower on my joints and achy muscles. It was introduced to me by a friend who uses the product. Ever since I started figure and bodybuilding competitions, I started to feel the joint pains in my right knee and wrists, and that was only the beginning of my problems. Doing these type of competitions puts such a strain on the body, not only because of the training involved, but also the diet. Since I diet so strict, I am stripped from the nutrients I need in order to stay healthy, so my body starts to feel the wrath. I began using FlexPower and I can truthfully say that I am relieved to finally use a product that not only works, but also doesn’t smell strong like those other products. I especially like that it slowly warms and heats the area that I applied it. While playing soccer for San Jose State, when ever we had our double and triple days, I would wake up soar or achy, and the only thing recommended to me was ICE, ICE, ICE. I know that icing my body works, but what happens when that numbness wears off. You are still left the aches and pains. I wish I had known about FlexPower back then.
I use it daily now, and feel good to know that I can continue to bust my butt in the gym, cause I have my secret weapon to sooth my pain and discomfort. My knee is doing much better, and I have not felt the joint pain since I started using FlexPower.
Nick Vandam - Kent, OH
FlexPower cream has really helped me recover between workouts so I can push myself to become faster and stronger everday. I use the cream on my shins to help reduce some of my pain after a hard run. I also use it for all those little aches and pains that come with training for triathlons!
Vantaggio/ Specialized Pro Women’s Mountain Bike Team - Hixson, TN
FlexPower has been my saving grace all winter. I normally have a ton of knee problems in the winter (years of being a runner), but this winter, I had NO PROBLEMS. The only thing I did differently was use your product. I tell everyone I meet about how awesome it is. THANKS!!!! www.vantaggiofitness.com
Deniss Tchoumatchenko - France
I want to thank FlexPower for help and support. After years and years of weightlifting and marital arts practicing, my articulations weren't in great shape, so applying the FlexPower cream before and after workouts and trainings help me to keep the intensity, stimulate the recovery and avoid the pain. It's a really great product containing MSM and Glucosamine, and I'll continue to use it all over years.
"Young Guns" - Daly City, CA
For the past 20+ years we have been active in competitive sports- softball, baseball, basketball and golf. Through the years we’ve sustain plenty of injuries- pulls/sprains/stiffness in muscles and joints. For those injuries we’ve tried it all, from the smelly heat rubs to the intestine ripping ibuprofens. One day before our weekly softball game, a buddy introduced us to FlexPower. From that day forward, FlexPower has been our first and only choice for pain relief. FlexPower helps us warm-up and loosen up quicker oppose to just regular stretching. FlexPower also helps us with recovery. We ALL love the gradual heating sensation and clean odorless scent. We highly encourage everyone to try out FlexPower. Thanks FlexPower for making us feel young again, and helping us win another Elite Daly City, CA Softball Championship!!!
Mark Wilson, Professional Life and Triathlon Coach, Hudson Valley Triathlon Club - Bearsville, NY
FlexPower has been used by many Hudson Valley Triathlon Club members and is receiving rave reviews; the athletes are able to perform to maximum capacity due to healthy and strong muscular elasticity/contraction while racing. One particular comment was that the depth of the ointment into the muscle was astonishing and a “first” in his athletic experience. The members are always pleased and relieved to see sample packets in their goody bags; FlexPower is a hit with HVTC!
Alexis Waddel-Smith, Professional Triathlete- Monterey, CA
As a professional triathlete I need my body to be in top condition, but when a recent neck strain caused considerable pain, I used FlexPower to alleviate the musuclar discomfort. This was the first time I had used FlexPower and wasn't sure what to expect. I woke in the middle of the night and rubbed some on. Within a few seconds, the warming sensation helped to relax the muscles which allowed me to get much needed sleep. FlexPower helped me recover so that I could resume training. Because of the great results from using FlexPower on my neck, I have continued to use FlexPower on other sore muscles. www.montereybaymultisport.com
Rob Dahl, Cal Cycing Team - Berkeley, CA
I started using FlexPower at the beginning of this season and started noticing the difference immediately. Before cool and wet training rides this winter, the warming sensation kept my legs moving. And applying it before races gives me that edge to push a little harder, for a little longer, and come out on top.
Jeffrey T. Rogg - Detroit, MI
I became aware of your fine product at the San Francisco Marathon in late July. I had a nice visit with your representative at the expo the day
before the race and bought a large "tube," which I applied before the race and have used periodically in my continued training since my return home to Michigan. I particularly appreciated the 5-6 sample packets your rep gave me, though, because I was able to take these with me in my pocket during the
marathon. You will not be surprised to know that, along about mile 20, as I began to experience slight leg cramping, I was able to apply just the right amount of Flex Power from the packet to allow me to overcome the pain and continue to a strong finish.
John Collins - Georgetown, TX
I was racing in Houston, TX at the Mason Park Cyclocross Challenge in the Master's Division. There was one long downhill straightaway on a wide sidewalk that ended in an immediate 90 degree steep uphill left turn. I had tried to keep as much speed as possible cutting the corner on the turn and then dismounting and running up the hill. On the third lap, my front wheel stuck in the sand and I went flying over the handle bars landing on my right shoulder. It took me about a lap to get back to my senses and get racing hard agaiin, finishing the race and getting a top 10. The next several days found the shoulder stiff and sore. I tried the usual ointments and pain relievers. Nothing really worked and I even had physical therapy to help with the stiffness. That same week, on Wednesday, my teammate and I left for KC CX Nats arriving in a small snowstorm and icy conditions. Texans don't have much of an opportunity to see snow so it was fun albeit cold. We got checked in, got our goody bag, and went to our rooms to get set for racing the next day. I opened my care package and found several packages of a topical ointment - FlexPower - inside. I tried the ointment on my shoulder and found some nice soothing warmth penetrating the shoulder. It was the best my shoulder had felt since I crashed...and I was able to lie on it at night with out much pain. I used it repeatedly during the stay and at the end of the week it was feeling significantly better.
Bennett Brookstein - Philadelphia, PA
I received FlexPower about a month ago. I just completed my 16th Marathon and was training for a 20K and now a 10 miler (Broad Street Run). After the runs, my legs get back on the bike for some long rides. Since applying FlexPower during my pre-and post -training, mylegs/hips/knees have been feeling amazing. My legs now warm up quickly with no pain. And applying after training, the next day, I'm able to move again. I especially like no smell or residue on your hands. It's just like putting a mild lotion on. My training and racing can only get better! www.runfairmont.org
Cody Wilson, Eliminator BMX Racing Team - Apple Valley, CA
Since Eliminator BMX Racing Team began using FlexPower we have found a multitude of uses that excel from every other product used. The most beneficial phase of FlexPower in the extreme endeavors of BMX racing is the warming sensation Flex Power provides. In colder weather this becomes our best intervention to fight the “bone chilling effect” and take the Eliminator Racing Team riders to new levels with cold weather off season training & racing. www.eliminatorbmx.com
William Nystrom - San Carlos, CA
Let me say once more that I appreciate FlexPower and the amazing results I’ve experienced with regards to my knee re-hab. Not a day goes by without applying FlexPower. Last night I was able to run 10k outdoors with minimal discomfort. At mile 2 the gradual heat kicked in and made whatever discomfort I was experiencing disappear.
I’ve already started handing out samples to friends and team mates as well as other athletes I encounter. If it didn’t work I wouldn’t be this stoked to help promote FlexPower.

In 2003 I was competing in the eastern championships for big air skiing, and mogul skiing, and I had what you could call a "pretty nasty crash". I went off the jump and did my trick but when I landed I tweaked my back really badly, and accoording to the MRI's I have the back of a 35 year old, and i'm only 17. I did some serious muscle damage, and severe joint damage, and have been seeing a chiropractor ever since. When I was competing out in Utah, for the National freestyle championships I met a great guy name Kenny standing under the FlexPower tent. At the time I was just looking for some free stuff like I had been all day, but I bought this new sports cream, and LOVED IT. My doctors recommend the glucoasaime which is in FlexPower, so I have been using this almost every day since. I hand out samples of it to all my fellow competitors and family, in hopes that they too will enjoy its sensations. FlexPower rules!!! And I never switch over to some other lame brand! Thank you FlexPower!!!

I just wanted to say thanks for making a great product. I picked up a sample last weekend at Escape from Alcatraz. While I should know better than to use something new on race day, I took a chance. This was my second time at Alcatraz and what makes the race so great also makes it really hard as an athlete. You don’t get a warm-up. Only a boat ride and the fear of 2000 athletes landing on you as you jump into the frigged water. So, I took a chance and rubbed on a layer of FlexPower on my legs and shoulders just before I put on my wetsuit. It started slowly heating and by the time they opened the gate on the boat my muscles were warm. I felt great jumping into the Bay. I swam over a minute faster than last year and I believe it was do to having my muscles warm and my body better ready for the hard effort. It set me up for a great day. I finished several minutes faster than last year. I managed to get on the podium by finishing 2nd in my age-group and I was the 7th amateur male overall finisher. Thanks again for the sample. I think I have a new prerace habit.

I was first introduced to Flex Power Sports Cream in a goody bag that I won at a RunBikePaddle Sprint Adventure Race. I can tell you that the tube did not last because I was finding myself using it every time I was training. With the uniqueness of adventure racing, the level of activity may slow down and speed up at drastic tempos. For this very reason, it is critical that your muscles stay warm for your next burst of movement. Flex Power Sports Cream kept my wheels (legs) warmed up and loose.

I am a sponsored 60+ age group runner from the San Francisco Bay area. I received a sample of your product at the recent Escape From Alcatraz expo. I had been using a competitor's product but I have now switched to FlexPower!
I really like "the heat" generated upon application and the lack of smell. I now use FlexPower daily before and after workouts to keep my muscles ready for my next workout or competitive event.

I have always considered myself a "passionate weekend warrior". Over 20 marathons later and four full Ironman competitions, I consider FlexPower a part of my daily training. And one of my favorite things about FlexPower, I can go from the bike course, to corporate business suit and no one ever knows I'm wearing my FlexPower! Another great aspect is it is not greasy, so it never interferes or ends up on my clothes!!! http://cbs5.com/roberta

Training for a 10-hour Ironman is hard work. To be successful, one needs to push their body beyond its comfort point almost daily. As a result, I am
almost always sore. In training for Ironman New Zealand, my weekly load
consisted of almost 15 miles of swimming, 300 miles of biking and 50 miles of running. To be sure, I was sore almost all the time. Flex Power helped me through the tough times. A little dab here and there and I was ready for my relentless assault on the 10- hour mark. Without Flex Power, I am not sure I would have got it done.
Dan McCollum - Phoenix, AZ
My name is Dan McCollum and I played college baseball at Tulane University in New Orleans. Once my college career ended I hung up the spikes for 7 years. Upon moving to Phoenix Arizona to work for the Cardinals I was invited to join an over 28 Men’s Senior Baseball League (AZMSBL). After my first season as a catcher I noticed that my arm and knees were not in the same shape as I left them in college. The following season one of my teammates, Former Phoenix Sun Dan Majerle, was using a cream to warm up his throwing arm. I asked him what it was and he let me try it. As soon as I put FlexPower on my shoulder and elbow I could feel it go to work immediately and eased the soreness making my arm feel great. I have since been using the product before every game for the last three years. I highly recommend this product as a safer more effective product to ingesting aspirin and other ibuprofens. I have turned my entire team of middle aged weekend warriors on to the product and just about everyone uses it now. The lack of a mediciny smell is great as well. Thanks for making such a great product and I will definitely continue to pass the message on to people I meet.

I'm an elite triathlete living and training in San Diego. I tried FlexPower prior to the Pumpkinman Club Nationals in Las Vegas this weekend. I thought it was an excellent product because it relieved the muscular pain that I was having without the medicinal odor that other topical creams have. My girlfriend didn't notice I had used it which was great because with other products I would have been sleeping in another room! Without any pain, I was able to push quite hard and win the race.
Dr. John Park, DC, Chiropractor and Martial Arts Competitor - Rockville, MD
I use FlexPower on regular basis for my own aches and pains from training in Mixed Martial Arts, and I also use it on a daily basis as part of the treatment for my patients. I almost always mix FlexPower in with the gel I use during therapeutic ultrasound treatments, and I also have the massage therapists use it as part of their massage therapy treatments. All of my patients have given me great feedback about FlexPower, and now most of the amateur and professional athletes I take care of carry a tube of FlexPower in their gym bags. The Mixed Martial Arts competitors are some of the toughest patients I've ever worked with, and there's usually always something that is sore and aching from their intense training sessions. FlexPower has been an valuable part of my treatment regimen for pain relief, recovery, and enhanced performance. www.prospinerehab.com

I was introduced to FlexPower at this year's Escape from Alcatraz triathlon in June. I was having quite a bit of pain and tightness in my calves before the race and I stopped by the FlexPower booth and tried the product immediately. My initial reaction was very positive and felt the heat and relief in my muscles right away. I applied the product inside my wetsuit before the swim at Alcatraz which helped me relax before making that chilling entry into the bay. Anyone who is need of muscle relief prior to, during or after a long hard workout will benefit from this product. I have suggested this product to several friends and fellow triathletes.
