Having used other nutrition products in the past, Potts explains why he made the switch:
“For years, I have used a specific electrolyte formula that was no longer available. So, my nutritionist and I sat down to look at my needs on race day and in training. INFINIT went right to the top of the list. So, I took the 5 Hour Challenge and was blown away. Right then, I knew that I had to work with INFINIT for my own racing and training, plus the nutrition needs of our AP Racing team. My goals are to perform at the best of my ability and help as many people as possible who struggle with their nutrition strategy. INFINIT makes it easy - there is no worrying about carrying loads of food or worrying if you are getting enough.”
