Age 40, Crossfit, Olympic Weightlifting
How ProAnox has helped my Weightlifting career. Six years ago I started CrossFitting, I loved the thought of putting my muscles to work and quickly fell in love with the sport of Olympic Weightlifting. I had always loved lifting weights, and the act of throwing yourself under the bar as quickly as possible added a rush like no other. In 2009 I started working with a lifting coach and in 2010 I opened my own CrossFit gym. Last year I discovered ProAnox and had to give it a try. I had been complaining for months about soreness and thought my age had finally caught up with me. After a couple of weeks on Genesis the results were too good to believe! Soreness was a thing of the past and it allowed me to train like never before. I would have thought that I was crazy or that it was a placebo effect but my husband was taking it as well and having the same results.
Since I started Olympic lifting, there has always been a little voice in the back of my head telling me that I was too old, that I would plateau and loose strength, but now I feel just the opposite! At the 2012 CrossFit Regionals I was one of 2 women in the world to make it to the end of the Snatch ladder (ending at 185 lbs), I am a nationally ranked Olympic Weightlifter and hold 7 PWA (Pacific Weightlifting Association) Records (setting 2 just last weekend!). And the best news of all, I keep getting stronger and I owe a huge thank you to ProAnox!
Age 51, Crossfit Games 1st Place Masters 45-49
"I started taking ProAnox products April March 2012. Really started feeling better as a whole about a week after beginning with it. I am a crossfitter who is pretty hard on their body and I have battled through various injuries. I am convinced that ProAnox has made it possible for me to bounce back sooner. I highly recommend ProAnox to crossfitters of ALL ages!!!"
"I started using ProAnox in the middle of my cycling season. At a time when I should have felt really tired and worn down, I actually started to feel I had more energy, was recovering better, and felt extremely healthy. Now I use ProAnox to stay healthy and strong despite all the demands I put on my body through the sport."
"After every major triathlon or marathon I've ever competed in, I've been sore with limited mobility for a few days post race. For one month before Ironman 70.3 Boulder, I took ProAnox. It was my first competition as a professional and my first exposure to ProAnox. After a series of quality training sessions, I was very happy to place 4th in a stacked field of 18 pro women, finishing as the first American woman. But equally as important, I wasn't sore during the days following the event. I firmly believe that ProAnox helped boost my training and performance, and obliterate my post-race soreness. As a mother of a four year old and a toddler, and as a spinning instructor, I can't afford to have downtime caused by soreness. Thanks, ProAnox, for keeping me at the forefront of the competition and feeling better than ever."
"We'd like to say a special thank you to ProAnox...two weeks after the CrossFit Games, Rocklin Crossfit headed back for the WOD Gear Competition in LA. After a day battling it out with some of CrossFits top competitors, we walked away with 1st place! We attribute much of our success (and ability to turn around after the biggest competition of the year and do another two weeks later!) to ProAnox and their amazing products which have significantly increased our performance, endurance and recovery time. Thank you for your support and incredible products!"
"Last year when I was training, I felt really held down. Some days I would come out and be like man, I am beat up. Since I have been taking ProAnox, I don't know what the younger guys are feeling but now that I am older I can tell the affects it is having on my body. I can tell that my recovery is better, I am not as beat up, and I am able to hit the wods at the same intensity. As for last year I would have to hold back and another day where I would had to go harder. This year, I am not getting sick while last year I was sick a lot. My body feels better overall when I am working out. Is ProAnox helping me? Yes, I believe that it is. It is benefiting me in a lot of ways. I do believe that is a good supplement and recommend it to a lot of people my age."
"My soreness in general has really been minimal and while everyone was complaining about being sore after 12.3, I wasn't sore at all. I guarantee the only reason I was willing to do 12.4 again is that I wasn't that sore after doing it the first time. Which is amazing."
"Since I started my crazy regimen to prepare myself for ARMY RANGER SCHOOL the only thing I kept asking myself is 'how am I going to recover with little pain in such a short amount of time?' I came to you early and asked about Recovery and if your team could help! My training has something new everyday pushing my limits far past the edge and most of the time falling off only to be caught by a sea of self doubt. I put my body through torture day in and day out, and the pain is at a new level every square inch of the way. I 100% have to say that ProAnox has giving me the opportunity at 34 to train like a young man again and recovery at rates exceeding my wildest dreams, if it's mental then brother your product is mentally WORKING TOO! Team ProAnox keep up the great work "
Age 59, Crossfit, Ironman, Triathlon; Cancer Survivor
"ProAnox has made a huge impact on my quality of life. I am a 1&1/2 year breast cancer survivor and I've been doing CrossFit since mid 2011. Prior to being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, I was an endurance athlete. I completed four Ironmans, five Half-Ironmans, and numerous Olympic and sprint distance triathlons. After completing my cancer treatment I needed a change. CrossFit was what I was looking for. Part of the continuing treatment for my cancer consists of daily medication. One of the side effects of this medication can be muscle soreness and joint pain. My lower back and hip were especially affected. Sleep was next to impossible because laying in bed was so painful. As well, CrossFit also increased the muscle soreness and pain that I was feeling. My daughter, who is also a CrossFit enthusiast, recommended ProAnox.
I was truly desperate and willing to try anything for relief. After 3 days of taking ProAnox my muscle soreness and pain were almost completely gone. After one month I no longer ache and I have more energy. I'm able to train harder and can do back to back CrossFit workouts. Before ProAnox I needed a day off in-between workouts for recovery. I am thankful for ProAnox because now I can do CrossFit three times per week, trail run three days and swim at least one day of the week and still have energy to spare."
2010 CrossfitGames Athlete
"I use to get really sore and by Wednesday I was wrecked. I couldn't stand up but once about a week in on the ProAnox, I felt like it was Monday on Saturday. ”
Professional Hockey Player
"I feel more energy and endurance in the game and much better recovery from hard contact and skating the day after training. I am not sore after a game, something I understand is very consistent with athletes and ProAnox. I like the idea it also helps against the damaging effects of concussions since concussions are so common in full contact sports like hockey."
Crossfit Games Athlete
"Since I have started using ProAnox supplements I recover faster, feel less post-WOD soreness and inflammation as well as having more energy throughout the day."
3rd place at 2011 Reebok Crossfit Games
“At first I didn't feel much of a difference. After a few days of dosing it, I started to notice I wasn't as sore as well as my back pain was gone from heavy Olympic lifting days. Whatever it is doing, it is working.”
2011 Reebok Crossfit Games Athlete
"I have always had a sensitive stomach to supplements. I saw Rebecca Voigt take it at Valley and when I won a packet at the NLI event, I gave it a try and loved it. "
2011 Reebok Crossfit Games Athlete
“You don't feel anything as it is happening. Most supplements I feel dizziness or nausea. With ProAnox I don't feel any side affects. What I do notice is my performance and recovery. Ok the workouts over, what's next?”
2012 Crossfit Games Contender
“I feel good. I take my rest days, but my body feels good day after day after day so I have to force myself to take a rest day.”
“The first thing I noticed is my recovery is faster, and just feel great. I can come back and train harder day after day. I have not taken Advil since starting ProAnox”.

"It has been two weeks since the ProAnox Extreme product rack showed up at One World. Five One World trainers started taking the product. I can honestly tell you that I believe it does exactly what it says it is going to do. I train hard. Chyna trains twice as hard as I do. We have both noticed that we are way less sore than normal. For me, I'll take it one step further. Not only do I feel better physically, I feel much better emotionally too. I'm sleeping better. I'm less sore. My knee is feeling way better. I am enjoying training again."
Lift Big Eat Big
"I first heard about ProAnox after reading the results that the Wonder Couple had from Crossfit One World. I began taking it in the beginning of December, which coincided perfectly with my hard month of Powerlifting/Strongman/Olympic programming. ProAnox is an antioxidant & inflammation-reducing supplement, and according to ProAnox, there are 4 main ingredients in the supplement that make it such an excellent product.
The ProAnox is what allowed me to hit my training hard continuously throughout December. Without it, I probably would not have been able to go for PR's every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for my variety of training methods. The directions are simple to follow: one package in the morning and one package in the afternoon. I ordered a months supply and have fantastic results with the product. Along with the decreased DOMS, aches in my joints seemed to vanish along with increased energy and focus during training.
I am recommending ProAnox to my clients with inflammatory problems, achy joints, or anyone who just wants improved recovery times and overall health"

"How’s this for evidence of the anti-inflammatory properties of ProAnox anti-oxidants? Several days ago I did two hard workouts: Workout #1 involved a total of 45 thrusters (floor to a squatting position, then stand up and push the bar overhead, back to squatting position, repeat) plus a bunch of rope climbs (each 2 ft. higher than what is usually regarded as regulation). Then, with only a short rest, I did Workout #2, which among other things involved a total of 75 CrossFit Games regulation hand-release pushups (lie on the floor, push up to full extension, then back to floor, lift hands off floor, repeat). Both workouts were done for time, going as hard as I could go. After finishing the second workout, my arms felt like noodles. Together, these two workouts are brutal on the triceps and pectoral muscles. The result? 24 hours later: no soreness. 48 hours later: barely any detectable soreness, virtually nothing. Anyone who doesn’t find this remarkable is, in all due respect, simply uncomprehending. I’m just stunned by it. Before going on ProAnox, I assure you that the consequences of these two workouts would have been very different indeed!

"I cannot express it enough at how ProAnox has taken everything I do to another level. Just about every morning it had been a struggle to get my body moving. If it wasn't for the passion and desire I have for helping athletes accomplish their goals and dreams that is what drove me to get moving. I was first introduced to ProAnox by Jerry Breen, CEO of ProAnox as his son has been in my basketball as well as other programs I offer through Schools, Community Centers, etc.. I used to take Advil and Aspirin often but since taking ProAnox the pain and soreness that I felt evry morning getting up is completely gone that i once struggled with on a daily basis. Outside of the pain being gone I am training harder and recover from my workouts individually as well as when I am training athletes. ProAnox is the real deal. The best way i can put it is to at least give it a try and see how it works for you. Mark my words, YOU WILL COMPETE AT A DIFFERENT LEVEL."
Age 59, Swimmer, Water Polo Player, College Professor and Scientist
"I have been taking ProAnox for 12 weeks and find its benefits clear and significant. I am swimming faster and longer distances than I have in 30 years with no loss of speed of power even after a day of weight training. I am bench pressing weights in excess of those I was able to in my late 20’s and early 30’s. I feel better, train harder and recover faster.
As a Scientist and physiologist: it is probable that ProAnox will provide athletes in heavy training, to train harder, recover faster, increase muscle endurance, and increase muscle strength. There are no negative side-effects. Based solely on the evidence available at this moment, there is no reason NOT to take ProAnox and many good reasons TO take it. If it has even a 1% positive effect, the cumulative effect of 1% augmentation, day after day, for top level athletes, ProAnox might well be the difference between winning and losing."
Age 37, 2006 Mr. USA (Body Building Champion)
"I am a professional body-builder from New York City and held the title of Mr. U.S.A. in 2006. I have been taking Advil regularly for years to deal with some painful inflammation that's related to my intense training. Knowing how bad this (Advil) is for my liver and kidneys, I've always searched for other, healthier ways to deal with this pain. When I heard of ProAnox and its high concentrations of natural anti-inflammatories, I was intrigued and decided to try it. I am pleased to say that, today, I no longer need to take Advil for my pain and soreness as ProAnox has completely taken away the inflammation that has plagued me for so long. And, not only is the pain gone, but I have lots more energy throughout the day and while training, I am able to do more sets than before and I recover from my hardest sessions much faster. ProAnox is an amazing product that I would recommend to anyone."

"I have felt like I have more endurance and stamina. I have been working out on a pretty good routine for the past few years and I do feel as though I have a little more gas in the tank - especially at the end of the day. I have noticed that my breathing has been slightly easier during my trainings. I have been sleeping very well and waking up feeling ready to go just about every day. Thank you for letting me try your product. I do believe that this is something that could help our Olympic team prepare and win the gold in London."
Age 43, Model, Actress, Runner (half-marathons),
Weight Training and Yoga
"I live in a very high stress crazy environment – New York City! As an actress and model, I am constantly running around on castings. I also have a day job working at a non-profit organizing events. I have always been active, I enjoy yoga and weight lifting but my real joy is running in Central Park. I also compete in half-marathons in the tri-state area to keep me motivated with my training. About 2 months ago after a few very hard interval track workouts, I had to stop running because my knees were in constant pain. I was feeling down and frustrated. Fortunately I met someone in my gym who mentioned they were taking ProAnox and they were feeling great. After the first week of taking it, I noticed I had a lot more energy. By the second week running up and down the subways stairs I noticed I was moving much faster and the nagging pain was less frequent. It has been well over a month and I no longer have any pain in my knees! I am now doing light mileage on the treadmill and I am elated to be running again. I have recommended ProAnox to my running group and gym acquaintances. It is an amazing product and a must for anyone serious about improving their health & fitness."

"(With ProAnox) I have avoided illnesses like the flu and common cold and my energy level has been great. For a 50-year-old cyclist I feel exceptionally good. I feel like I am getting younger."
Age 42, Former NCAA, Division 1 Basketball Player,
Currently Competing in a Pro-Am League.
"I play basketball against current and former professional players in the San Francisco Pro-Am league. I also coach and play against kids aged 18 to 25. ProAnox has given me the ability to keep up with these youngsters and recover faster. For a long time now my knees have been hurting a lot because of the abuse they've taken over many years of competition. Since taking ProAnox the inflammation is gone, my knees no longer hurt and I am playing pain-free. My endurance has increased a lot. I'm able to play harder and for a longer period than before. My breathing has also improved a lot since taking ProAnox. I breathe much easier when I'm playing hard and I recover my breath much faster after maximum effort."
Age 48. Former Top-Level Amateur Bicycle Racer,
Ultra-Marathon Trail Runner, Big-Wall
Rock Climber & Brain Tumor Survivor.
Current Avid Cyclist and Trail Runner.
"Prior to taking ProAnox, I was having a lot of difficulty getting a full breath, especially when climbing hard on my bike. My surgeon had told me that this was probably the outcome of my two, very long brain surgeries. Well, after a few weeks of taking ProAnox I was breathing easy again and flying on the bike. I also experienced a significant increase in endurance and power (WATTS).. These nutrients have also sped up my recovery time a ton.. I've been taking ProAnox for more than 4 months now and I continue to experience improvements in all the areas I've mentioned. My wife tells me my skin looks much better too."
Age 48, Player and Coach, Ultimate Frisbee
"My recovery is the most evident benefit of ProAnox. I am not very sore, if at all, the day after playing a 2 hard games of Ultimate (Frisbee) against kids a third my age. I am very happy about this. ProAnox has also helped my endurance. (I play two games of Ultimate each Sunday). I feel just as strong in the 2nd game as I do in the 1st game - this is new for me. Prior to taking ProAnox, I was getting stomach cramps in the same spot after about 10 minutes of running. I have only experienced this once since starting the regimen (4 weeks ago). I have also been able to increase the maximum number of dips that I can do in the gym at a single time by 30%. This is significant."
Age 22, NCAA Varsity Water Polo Player
Brazil Olympic Water Polo Team
Recently I was given ProAnox by Jerry Breen to use during my waterpolo season. At first I was skeptical about this, but after doing it I know this really works. I took two packages once in the morning and once in the evening. On the fifth day, I started to feel more energy and endurance during my morning practice. Between practices, my muscles felt like they were recovering faster. I wasn't getting the sore feeling for as long as I was used to. Also, I felt like my muscles were getting more defined then they usually are. Throughout the season, I saw my endurance and energy levels increase, and my recovery time decrease. Overall, I think that my performance in the water was greatly affected by ProAnox in a very positive way. I would recommend this to any athlete who wishes that there performance would increase.
Thanks to ProAnox, I am off blood pressure medication for the first time in 20 years and my cholesterol is at an all time low"
