I started using XRCEL at the start of my 3 ironman. A friend introduced it to me and I decided to give it a try. We were given 3 flavors and my favorite is Peach Tea. I used it for about 6 months and perfected how it worked for me during my long training days. I was able to tolerate it without stomach issues and it worked well with my other nutrition. I had the race of my life and Pr’d by 2 hours from my first ironman and 23 mins from my second. I went straight into ultra-running after ironman and completed 2 50K’s and finished first in my AG. The XRCEL helped me with the long endurance and allowed me to finish strong where prior to XRCEL I wouldn’t have the energy long into the race. I can’t say enough of how it has helped me perform better overall and allow me to recover faster too. I’m hooked and I’m looking forward to continuing to use this amazing product for my future training and races. I truly love it and know it has helped me preform.

Thanks again for introducing me to XRCEL. I do believe it is a superior product and I highly recommended it. I wish this stuff was around back in my playing days.
I used 6 bottles over the coarse of 3 consecutive training days. I used them in the morning right before I ran, then biked. All 4 days I was running between 8-14miles followed by a 20-30 mile bike ride. I would take one right before the run and then a second one right before I got on the bike. I usually don’t eat before I train in the morning so all I had was water and the XRCEL. I felt awesome! I could tell I had an even level of energy through out the coarse of the sessions. There was no dip in form or lag time. It was easier to get into a grove on this stuff and feel that “runner’s high” were you could feel like pushing on through even in the last couple miles.
I am very conscious of what I put into my body and hyper aware of how my body feels eating certain foods and drinks. This one takes the cake. I’ve tried all types of gels, goo and bars and gladly stand behind this. I haven’t seen a product that has the deliver system either. Also taste was great.
I’d gladly pass this on to training partners and friends who do Ultra-marathons and Ironmans.
Ben Hollingsworth Former pro soccer player and triathlete May 12, 2015
I shaved a wopping 15 minutes off my Ironman Florida target race time. XRCEL made the difference.
Paul S. May 14, 2015
On my first trial I felt fine throughout the 100 mile bike ride. I had XRCEL every 20 miles for the first 60 miles. I noticed after taking XRCEL the alertness factor is high at the 60-80 mile mark when other rides I seem to lose focus.
I felt energy level solid during the bike especially after a swim before starting.
Good feeling not just physically but also mentally…alert on the bike at the longer distances you can fade with concentration, very impressed with results so far.
Erin H. May 14, 2015
My experience with XRCEL has truly been amazing. From the easy ordering process to the actual product itself – their knowledge of what it takes to fuel one’s body for endurance events is unmatched. Since using XRCEL I have noticed a big difference in my performance and my ability to stay focused and strong until the end. I look forward to using it the race season. I would highly recommend this product to anyone that wants to improve their swim, bike or run times.
Don O. Triathlete May 30, 2015
I’m excited to join the XRCEL team and looking forward to using XRCEL as my primary sports nutrition product in my training and racing. Because of its extended carbohydrate release, XRCEL has an important advantage over all other sports nutrition products. The fact that it’s free of banned substances and WADA safe is also extremely important to me as a professional triathlete. I’m looking forward my relationship with XRCEL as it embodies all of the qualities an endurance athlete needs.
Patrick Evoe -Professional Triathlete and Ironman Winner September 9, 2015
We’re not saying it’s the only reason, but the Battery have been performing better with XRCEL.
USL Charleston Battery Training Management May 12, 2015
At 36; XRCEL was one of the tools that allowed me to compete at a high level in my final 15th season as a pro. It was easy to take and I liked that I could use it for each fueling stage in my games and training sessions. Wish I had it for the other 14 seasons!
John Wilson Formerly of D.C. United and Charleston Battery Soccer May 14, 2015
I have now used the product 3 times. The first time I was waiting for a burst of energy that never came. After using it the second and third time I realized that in the second half of games, my legs felt great and I didn’t feel sick or bloated.
Zach Prince Charleston Battery May 14, 2015
When trying the product for the first time it was grape flavored and tasted ok. Took about 20 minutes until I felt a certain rush to my body that hyped me up. Towards the end of training still felt the affect and wanting to play more and more.
Second time trying the product was orange flavor and the taste was very delicious. Product kicked in about 10 minutes into my warm-up and felt focused the full training session.
Jose Cuevas Arizona United SC May 14, 2015
Tried XRCEL and loved it. Told the athletic trainer about it as well.
Robbie Derschang Arizona United SC May 14, 2015
I have used it now 3 times- all during high intensity Olympic weight training sessions. They usually last 1.5 to 2 hours. I don’t know if it’s this stuff, or if I’m just getting stronger, but in the 3 times I have taken XRCEL, I haven’t missed a single lift. I typically have 2 or 3 misses at a minimum. I thought the Orange was the easiest to take. I definitely felt like I could have kept going. Today I had a tough workout after playing this morning. Normally that’s a struggle for me. Today I felt like I could go another hour. I think this is a great product.
Hunter Gilstrap Carolina Rail Hawks (Goal Keeper) May 14, 2015
I have been using this XRCEL the last couple days and have really enjoyed this product. So far I take it just before I start playing and after I kind of push thru the first wall of exhaustion I really notice this feeling that allows me to run a little bit more freely. It allows you to kind of push thru the walls of exhaustion during the game in a mental and physical way. Then once I push through that wall where I start getting a little fatigued, it is almost as if I find this new energy source to keep pushing forward. I noticed this around the last 10-15 minutes of the game. All the flavors have been good, the liquid isn’t too thick and goes down easily, both warm and cold.
Gibson Bardsley Tulsa Roughnecks May 14, 2015
My players love it and said they can definitely feel a difference.
Corey Morell Southern Weslyan College (Soccer Head Coach) May 14, 2015
Things were very different for me with XRCEL. I was able to stay mentally and physically in the game with little fatigue. I felt like I had more energy throughout the whole game. I was able to make runs and get in position to save goals easier than I would have. I had more focus in my mind which allowed me to perform the tasks needed on the field.
Kelly C. NCAA Woman's Soccer Player May 14, 2015
Normally after three quarters of the game I feel my arms, legs and kick start to give out. Each day with XRCEL I did not need to slow down. I stayed mentally sharp and was able to go past a point that I know would normally be enough to stop.
Forrest S. NCAA Men's Soccer May 14, 2015
“In order to see if the drink worked, we decided to take XRCEL to the test during a soccer game, and let us tell you, it is worth all of the hype. We’ve heard some compare it to a “runner’s high,” in that they feel like they can just keep running. Basically, it just provides your body with the carbs necessary throughout a game or run, so that you can keep going without feeling too fatigued. And although the texture is a bit thick, the taste is just fine, making it easy to down them fairly quickly.
Neal Shaffer – Owner FutbolerFit @FutbolerFit.com May 19, 2015
“XRCEL has allowed me to permanently refrain from using caffeinated energy drinks, which I have depended upon throughout my career to maintain energy levels, all the while providing me with more than enough fuel/energy to fly through my trainings and games!”
Oguchi Onyewu International Professional Soccer Star and US National Team Member June 30, 2015
I can say that I have tried many supplements throughout my officiating career. Not only is XRCEL easy to drink and has great flavor but the effects of it are lasting. There are plenty of times that when I am hitting the 70th minute of a match and climbing over the 6.5 mile mark that I have caught myself digging, but when I take the XRCEL it prolongs my fitness to levels I have not been able to achieve before. I used to take 5 hour energy or a Red Bull before a match and you could feel your energy levels dwindle much earlier on in a match. XRCEL is made to keep your endurance and awareness at the highest levels throughout the entire 90+ minutes.
David Erbacher - Professional Referee USL July 9, 2015
I liked XRCEL because I did not have any noticeable differences. I was able to maintain my energy level and perform well. Compared to what I normally use the drop off was substantially slower. Normally my legs give completely out and I can’t give anymore. With XRCEL the decline was much slower and I was able to finish the games.
D. Schneider Former Pro - Guilford Heat May 12, 2015
Just a short note to tell you that I’ve found XRCEL to do what you (and the research) said it would do. Our players have expressed that they feel that they are able to sustain effort for longer periods of time before fatiguing. We have tried other products in the past without having the type of results we are getting from our use of XRCEL. I look forward to continuing our use and to the success it has helped us achieve to this point.
Michael Sandago USC Upstate (Associate AD for Sports Medicine) May 14, 2015
I do like the XRCEL product. I have used it on a hand full of guys for basketball games and practice. They seem to feel more energized late in practice and games.
Chris Horschel College of Charleston (Director of Sports Medicine) May 14, 2015
From the Australian Open Qualifiers: “These XRCEL things are the only thing getting me through this tournament!” Harris said, that was the first time he didn’t feel hungry during a tennis match!”
Andrew Harris University of Oklahoma Tennis May 12, 2015
I play competitively 4-5 days a week. I had great results this week winning both matches in 3rd set tiebreakers. Maybe a coincidence, but I did not feel fatigued and I played my best tennis in the last 30 minutes of both matches.
I am convinced about the focus enhancement – in all matches played when I didn’t use XRCEL, I did not concentrate anywhere near as well as I did during the matches where I consumed XRCEL. Without XRCEL I do not see the ball as clearly and I struggle to slow down the game (mentally) – often leading to more errors and inconsistencies.
Scott K. Adult Amateur May 14, 2015
With over 30 years of cycling experience, I used to depend on caffeine filled gels and drinks that only gave me a swift surge of energy. Now with XRCEL, I can extend and maintain my energy levels much longer and recover quicker during training rides and competitions. In my endless pursuit to stay physically fit, and sustain quality training efforts, I feel it’s my obligation to share this product with those who want to achieve success and improve performance on any type of bike. After weeks of testing the product, XRCEL proved I could sustain my energy and intensity levels over and beyond three hours as a sprinter. I was blown away by the results. XRCEL is a big game changer for me.
Mike King Former Olympic coach

I’m excited to represent XRCEL and use the amazing product to power me to the top of the podium. I believe this is the next level of sports performance fuel and think that it will take any athlete to the next level in their sports.
Justin Pozey Professional BMX Racer

On January 8th I won the CycloCross Nationals Title in Austin, TX powered by XRCEL.
Craig C. May 14, 2015
This was my second ride with XRCEL. It looks like a 2 hour window before I “need” another XRCEL. Felt good and alert and focused. It seems like 2 to 2.5 hrs is about the time it takes before I should re-fuel with another XRCEL.
One of my trials included multiple sprint zones that are 3-5 miles long. The last zone is mostly uphill. My Garmin Data indicated that I had my second fastest time (out of 47 times) using XRCEL.
Rob H. Adult Amateur May 14, 2015
Using XRCEL was vital to maintaining power and speed during Reading 120
professional road race. With 5000+ calories burned over 120 miles and 5
hours, there was no margin for error when it came to refueling. Thanks XRCEL
for providing the best in sports nutrition along the way.
Glenn Ferreira 2015 NJ Elite Men's State Champion, Team Metra/Cycles 54 December 11, 2015
A big thanks to XRCEL! XRCEL has been far better than the short lived gels
for me when training and racing. I used XRCEL as my only fuel source during
my last major race of this season. The Green Mountain Stage Race is a four
day race in Northern Vermont. . XRCEL helped me achieve great results at
this event. In a very competitive Master’s field filled with elite National
and International riders. I finished in the top ten overall, my best result
ever at Green Mountain. XRCEL kept my body fueled and focused, and helped
finish the final day on the podium.
Dave Hussey 2015 NJ Masters State Champion, Team Cycles 54 December 11, 2015
I have been training and racing with XRCEL this season, and have seen
improved performance especially in the final hour of my longer events. The
added sodium and potassium that XRCEL provides helps fight off cramps even
in events that were over and above my training capacity. I’ve never
experienced GI issues with XRCEL and appreciate the sustained contestant
energy level I feel with XRCEL, unlike the peaks and valleys I was
experiencing with my previous gel products. We have enjoyed our partnership
with XRCEL at my business and have converted many customers to XRCEL, thanks
to its unique story and extended release delivery system setting it apart
from everything else on our shelf. Knowing that XRCEL is free of any banned
substances and NCAA and WADA compliant, I can confidently recommend it to
all our racers and customers.
Christian Young Owner Cycles 54, Category 1 Racer December 11, 2015
15 years ago I set a PR in the marathon. Yesterday at the Albany marathon, 15 years older, I broke it! Thank you XRCEL for fueling me throughout. Ran strong, stayed strong, finished strong. I Believe!
Dan D. May 12, 2015
My first trial was a marathon workout. I think I need a second dose at the 12 mile mark with intense running. I think I am getting more sore afterwards because I am able to push for longer. My second trial was the best I have ever done this workout. I really surprised myself. Felt very strong though the whole workout.
Alice K. May 14, 2015
A typical week I run 6 to 13 miles a day. I felt very positive with XRCEL. I have a problem with my hamstrings and with XRCEL I was able to run through the aches and finish strong. I was able to maintain my focus and for a longer period of time. I easily completed my 13 mile run.
Kathy C. May 14, 2015
Being 60 plus and an ex marathoner and of the old GU generation, XRCEL with its extended release formula has been a fantastic addition to my two hour workouts.
Fran R. May 14, 2015
After trying it for the first time, it tasted a little weird because I don’t like taking Gu or anything similar. After trying it for the first time, I realized it doesn’t upset my stomach and mess up my body. After a few bottles, I got use to the taste and I love the Blackberry the most. I have been trying it before and after my runs and so far it has been working great. After feeling comfortable, I tried it for racing. I like how it immediately works with your body and gives the energy it needs. I also took it with me to the park trying it out when I was playing some basketball and it helped give me the energy I needed.
Devang Patel Marathoner May 29, 2015
I have been running for the last year and a half. I am 56 years of age and have struggled with the energy levels on my run. This past weekend I participated in the New Jersey Marathon, running the 5k and my wife running the half marathon. I was introduced to your product at the Expo and was impressed by the sales staff. After using your product, my 5k was two minutes faster and I felt GREAT!!!. My wife an elite runner, also used your product and stated she felt so much better, ranking 2nd in her age group. I also am a tactical instructor for a private training company. Endurance is essential and will be recommending your product.
O'Connor Family Tactical Instructor and Elite Runner NJ Marathon May 2, 2016
I have been using XRCEL, for some time now, on the back 9 of my golf rounds. I have found that once it kicks in, it brings a sharper focus for me mentally. I definitely do not feel as fatigued ‘coming down the stretch’ and it really helps me concentrate on those last few holes to finish a round. I definitely see a difference when I am playing with and without it. XRCEL is now part of my game ritual and I am recommending it to my clients.
Joseph Wohlscheid PGA Golf Professional - Kiawah Island Club-Cassique May 12, 2015
My first experience was at a PGA professional event. I played very well all the way to the end. There was not a lull period in my game. I was hitting good drives and sticking my irons all the way to the end. Our team won shooting 18 under for the event. My second experience was a one day event only open to PGA Professionals. I caught traffic on the way down to the Outer Banks and I was unable to stick with my normal routine of warm up and I did not have any food that morning or during the tournament. After 15 minutes I settled down and played an average front nine. On the ninth hole I drank a bottle of XRCEL. I had an outstanding back nine shooting the lowest nine posted for the tournament. XRCEL allowed me to stay focused/concentrate and it kept me from being hungry during a long day of competition.
Andy Harris PGA Pro May 14, 2015
I felt good throughout the round. The fact that I didn’t have a drop off in energy was significant. I played one of my most consistent rounds this year shooting a 64.
Gary Anderson PGA Pro May 14, 2015
A successful Fall season and will be using XRCEL in Spring 2015. XRCEL helped with mental focus eliminating high scoring holes at the end of tournament rounds. Overall stats improved across the board.
P. Gyscek Washington & Lee University Golf (Head Coach, PGA Pro, WGCA East Region Coach of the Year & 2015 ODAC Coach of the Year) May 14, 2015
My concentration was improved and my energy level was heightened. What stood out to me was the prolonged period of heightened concentration.
Phil L. Adult Amateur May 14, 2015
I walk and carry my bag and it is usually hot, after 18 holes I am spent. I had not played golf for 3 weeks and after consuming XRCEL I hit the ball very well and was definitely not tired after walking 18 holes. I had no fatigue and I was focused for the entire round.
Michael S. Adult Amateur May 14, 2015
I had the best workout I’ve had in years. I could tell a difference as soon as I picked up my weights. I worked out for an hour and 10 min. I did 3 sets of all my exercises. I was able to move faster and lift heavier weights. You really need to try it. XRCEL is not just for athletes.
Sharon R. Personal Trainer May 12, 2015
As a working Mom with four children 10 and under and a self-confessed running addict and gym junkie, efficient use of time is absolutely critical to me. In that hour of exercise I try to squeeze in most days, I have found that using XRCEL has given me a 15% increase in performance based on distance covered and weights lifted. I am now in the process of becoming a certified Les Mills exercise instructor and find that even after a 4 mile run I can still complete a full Body Pump class with energy to burn. Thank you XRCEL for helping us busy Moms remain on track with our fitness!
Belinda P. May 14, 2015
I gave XRCEL a first “Real Try” this past Saturday for a strength workout. Blackberry. Flavor was quite good, but overall was a bit sweet. The viscosity didn’t bother me at all. The results were terrific – I worked out better than I have in years – more reps/more weight, some cardio, and never really got tired. Our athletic trainer, Sharon, pushed me pretty hard when she knew I had used it. My muscles never really got fatigued – particularly on the quad machine and for bicep curls, which always cause me problems. I closed out with a quick 400m on the treadmill at one of the fastest paces I have done in over 10 years – just to give it a try….and felt great. Normally, I feel the gorilla on my back at about 300m on this run and pushed right through this. I also had none of the real post work out stiffness that evening or following morning. XRCEL will become part of my workout regimen. I can see why the performance athletes can’t live without this after they have used it.
Bob Z. May 14, 2015
After a half day of mulching flowerbeds I was dragging. A friend offered me XRCEL. Within 15 minutes my energy was restored and I completed the project.
