BioGenix Athlete, Renee LaRocque, Competes in Mexico

Recently, BioGenix Athlete, Renee LaRocque, competed in Manzanillo, Mexico in the NORCECA Beach Tournament. Here is what she said about the experience....

"We had a great trip to Manzanillo. The weather was so hot and humid, that would be sweating just standing there. We were so glad to have Biogenix products to help keep us hydrated, our electrolytes up and full of energy. The tournament started with us playing St. Lucia where we beat them in two sets 21-9 and 21-11. Our second match with met up with Cuba who actually won the gold medal in that tourney. Their game and serve was on. Had some good plays but couldn't pull that one through. Our third match was against El Salvador. Had a rough start but couldn't pull it through in time. We ended up coming in 9th. Played some great ball, against great teams and learned alot, especially learning to play with a constant stream of sweat :) Now we are back to the cold and wishing we were still in Mexico! Looking forward to the next one!"

Testimonal from Thuy Nguyen

"I totally love this product. It gives me that extra bit of energy on days (before tournaments or competitive games) that I don't sleep as well and have difficulty focusing and concentrating on my game. It gives me a great boost of energy and endurance throughout the day when my energy levels dip. I cannot go without your Optimal Vertical system. I highly recommend it to any competitive volleyball player or endurance sport athlete! Thanks for a great product!"
