Brost, Team Altrient™ Shooting For CrossFit Glory
LAS VEGAS, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Elite athlete, Cheryl Brost, knows what it takes to train, compete and win. Last year, the 5'2", 127-pound, 40-year-old mother of two from Eugene, OR earned the title of 7th Fittest Woman in the World at the Reebok CrossFit World Games. This year, with the power of Altrient behind her, Brost won't settle for anything less than top honors.
"Normal CrossFit training can be pretty intense, but competing in the Games requires a completely different level of physical and mental commitment," Brost stated. "It demands a lot more from my body. I also need a lot more energy and I need to recover from my WODs faster. That makes my daily nutritional program even more important."
Late last year when Altrient, Inc. became Brost's CrossFit sponsor, she added the company's high-performance nutritional supplements to her training regimen. She also became a spokesperson for Altrient, as well as an enthusiastic advocate of its products.
"Altrient™ ME™ uses B vitamins, trace minerals and cinnamon extract to help my body burn fuel more efficiently and get more energy out of the whole foods I eat," Brost explained. "It ramps-up my metabolism so I can train harder and longer. It also keeps harmful toxins from building up in my body tissues."
"High dose Vitamin C helps my body make collagen, which repairs and strengthens my muscles and ligaments," Brost continued. "Since I started taking Altrient™ C, I've noticed an increase in my training volume, much less muscle soreness and much faster recovery cycles."
Brost is currently training for the Regionals, the next stage of the journey to the 2012 Reebok CrossFit World Games in Carson, CA in July. This year, more than 60,000 CrossFit athletes from around the world entered the competition. Just over 100 will make it to the Games. Even though she will be competing with women almost half her age, Brost expects to be a top contender for the coveted title of Fittest Woman in the World.
Altrient™ C and ME™ have been reviewed by NSF International, the official testing organization for Major League Baseball. NSF determined the products are free of any substances that do not meet NCAA standards.
