What's In A Drink?

Fuelme Blog |

At Fuelme, we understand that choosing the right hydration or energy drink can sometimes feel like navigating through a minefield due to the options. Not everybody's needs are the same, and what works for your running buddy may fall a little flat with you.

A lot depends on your fuelling style and strategy. Then there is how you are feeling, what your training aims are, climate, duration ... right down to how you slept last night. With so many variables knowing you have options that work for you can help. So a bit of trial and error and experimentation could be in order

Here are some key factors to keep in mind:

  1. Electrolytes: Electrolytes play a vital role in maintaining your body's balance during physical activity. Consider whether you prioritize drinks with these essential minerals or if this is being serves by another means.

  2. Fuelling Needs: Depending on your workout intensity, determine if you require additional fuel alongside hydration to sustain your energy levels.

  3. Flavour Preferences: Fuelme offers a range of flavors to cater to different tastes. Find a drink that suits your palate and keeps you refreshed.

  4. Sweeteners: Be mindful of how your body responds to different sweeteners to ensure a pleasant experience.

  5. Caffeinated Options: If you prefer a little extra boost there are many caffeinated hydration and energy drinks to choose from.

We have compiled a guide to help in finding the perfect hydration option to support your training and race endeavors.
