HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- When Irish Joe McCreedy enters the ring for the main event on September 4 to defend his existing title (EBA Super Middleweight champion) and fight for a new one (New England Super Middleweight title), there's only one thing that's certain - he'll be superhydrated with AquaHydrate, the first high performance sports water.
McCreedy was first introduced to AquaHydrate on the set of the upcoming Mark Wahlberg movie, "The Fighter," where, according to McCreedy, Wahlberg had stocked cases of AquaHydrate. McCreedy decided to give the water a try, and almost immediately noticed the difference that AquaHydrate made in his performance and recovery.
"As a professional athlete competing in one of the highest intensity sports, proper hydration is essential," said McCreedy. "Boxing makes you sweat like crazy and also requires you to wear a sauna suit every now and then. To have the strength and endurance a fighter needs requires a top quality water with the right balance of minerals to re-hydrate. After I started drinking AquaHydrate, I noticed a big difference in the number of rounds I could last towards the end of the night's workout. I was also able to add an additional run in the evening. In between workouts, I also noticed the effect the water has on my both my fitness ability and mental focus."
McCreedy has a reputation as a ferocious competitor and has emerged as one of New England's favorites since a 2006 matchup in which he continued to fight long after his jaw was broken, until the fight was finally ended in the third round. McCreedy's manager is Norman Stone, who trained world heavyweight champion Johnny Ruiz.
Hydration is key to boxing performance and recovery
According to Dr. Cheryle Hart, Mayo Clinic trained physician and medical advisor to AquaHydrate, the science of hydration is more complex than most athletes are aware. "Athletes are often surprised to learn that not all waters are equally hydrating. Plain, unenhanced water does not meet the hydration needs of high-performance athletes like boxers. And neither does water enhanced only with major electrolytes. Athletes also need to replace essential trace minerals that keep the muscles and heart working at peak performance, and macrominerals like magnesium, in addition to major electrolytes. And they need these before, during and after their workouts."
AquaHydrate's performance and hydration edge
AquaHydrate, the first high performance sports water, provides a proprietary combination of hydration and performance-boosting technologies: alkaline pH, ionic minerals, and micro-clustering. An alkaline pH helps battle the acid-producing effects of exercise, stress, fatigue, and poor diets. Ionic minerals, provided through an exclusive agreement with Trace Minerals Research, improve hydration at the cellular level by creating a gradient that literally draws water and minerals into the cells, replacing key trace elements and electrolytes for performance and recovery. Finally, AquaHydrate is micro-clustered, increasing absorption by reducing the size of the water molecule clusters, making it easier for them to enter cells.
