Reese incorporated an early version of PureSport into the training sessions of everyone from his swimmers to friend Roy Spence, of Austin advertising agency, GSD&M, who took the drinks on his much-publicized walk across America.
"In every case, their endurance was better, their recoveries were quicker, they had less post-workout soreness and three of my swimmers broke world records this year," said Reese. "I've been at this a long time; the drinks were definitely a factor."
Humphrey, a seasoned Texas businessman, came on board in late 2007. "The science was there, the results were there and the product was there and tasted great," says Humphrey. "The only thing left to do was to make it more widely available. Our goal is to make PureSport accessible to everyone who wants to enhance how their body deals with strenuous activity, whether that activity is competing in a triathlon, running on a treadmill, cleaning out the garage or chasing after your kids."
