Backed by over 20 years of research and testing, PREPD boosts your performance by enhancing the absorption of sports drinks and water from the very first use. Don’t take our word for it though, checkout the amazing PREPD reviews and experiences below from amateur and elite athletes alike.
"Have taken PREPD at least 6 times now in training and once in 70.3 . Was totally amazed while taking PREPD competing had heaps of energy during the bike and felt huge difference while on the run. Will continue to take PREPD during longer training sessions and competing in 70.3 and Ironman events."

"I’ve used PREPD at my last couple of Ironman 70.3s and it definitely makes a difference. My nutrition has been bang on, no problems with dehydration or cramping during or after the race. I’m putting this down to using PREPD and will continue to use it during training and racing!! Highly recommend!"

"It's always hard to quantify the impact of such a product, but since I started using PREPD around mid-2018 I genuinely feel like it has had tangible benefits to my race performance. I am a heavy sweater, and have suffered from cramp in key races previously, but since I started using PREPD I have raced one 70.3 and two full Ironman events consistently and without my previous issues. Of course, some of this must be attributed to other lessons learned and improved conditioning, but I'm convinced PREPD is helping too, in a quite significant way. In addition, it doesn't impact on any of my other race nutrition planning, because it is taken before and after, rather than during, an event. And the flavours are great too. I'll be continuing to use it for sure."

"I have been using PREPD for the last couple of months in the lead up to Ironman Cairns. I changed nothing else in my training and I felt the freshest I have ever felt coming off the bike into the run. Definitely would recommend PREPD to anyone racing IRONMAN."
— Jeffrey Robbins (18 June 2019)
"Used the PRIME before Ironman Australia and the influence on my hydration was marked. Compared with the year before I was able to drink more and didn't need to pee until after the race (as opposed to 8-10 times in 2018). Also used for Peaks Challenge and found it to be effective."
— Biggles Fishboye Georgie (18 June 2019)
"Great new entrant and one I'll be using regularly in training and racing. Used for the first time at Ironman Australia and had no issues at all... zero hint of any hydration issues before, during and after the race... none whatsoever! Easy on the stomach, tremendous taste. Looking forward to using throughout the winter and next season 🤜"
— Chris Smith (11 June 2019)
"I am very excited to have used PREPD along this journey (towards my first IRONMAN) and also equally excited to have convinced my coach on the quality of the product to the extent he now stocks it and supplies it to other athletes he coaches. I feel this product has truly enabled me to stay well on top of my hydration and recovery to be able to back up long session after long session with no worries at all."

"If you want to put your performance to the next level PREPD is the one, improved a lot my hydration during a big session and I can't wait to see how will be my next race!"

"I tried PREPD for the first time this weekend for The Seven Marathon MTB race- 130km, 3100m of climbing off-road and it worked incredibly well for me. I felt better and better as the 6+ hours went on , experiencing none of the fatigue, dehydration and cramps I had on my last 200km road race a few weeks ago. Ill definitely be packing PREPD for my assault on the Haute Route Pyrenees and Alps double in August."
— David Sofield (21 May 2019)
"Cant recommend PREPD enough. I used PREPD in Ironman Australia only a few weeks ago and could not be happier with not just the performance but for the first time in 10 years not once cramping or any dehydration issues. The product is a win win for me and for any aspiring age grouper or pro on the scene. Bravo gents your customer service at the IM expo was informative and passionate and it was not a sales plug but educated and factually driven information experience. I look forward to my next race and PB thank you David and Jason! Cheers Troy"

"Having used PREPD at the Port Macquarie Ironman it will now become part of my training and nutrition plan. Not only does it taste fantastic, it really works, allowing for better hydration on the long training days.
When the guys say, it makes water harder, they aren’t wrong.
Thank you so much for the support guys, PREPD really is awesome 👍"
— Dave Brown (17 May 2019)
"After trialing PREPD for a couple of long training runs, I was confident to use it for some races. Firstly, for a 24 hour race and most recently doubling 90 km and 70km on consecutive days. Despite being a heavy sweater, after having the Prime drink, I have noticed a decrease in thirst, particularly in the first 12 hours of the run. I was really happy with my ability to back up my 90k with only a few hours rest, when all I consumed was the PREPD recovery smoothie. So tasty and easy on the stomach!"
— Karen Mickle (15 May 2019)
"Just finished the Buffalo Grand Slam running 130kms and 9000 metres across 3 days. I used PREPD before and after and found it was awesome in helping me recover and back up. Also tasted good!"
— Ed Larkin (4 May 2019)
I use it for my key session on the weekends so longer rides and runs. Especially with longer runs, it has been important because for me it has always been hard to get enough fluid in during the run without that sloshy feeling. With Prepd it has been a lot easier and I have not felt as dehydrated throughout the sessions.
The recovery has also been important for me. I have a busy job and I am constantly trying to fit everything in, I have felt much better when I have used the recovery formula. I do sometimes struggle with eating and drinking after longer sessions but being able to have Prepd has meant that I can have something that helps get my body back on track after those sessions. I have previously used protein shakes or the like but they do not really hit the hydration part of the recovery.

"Had my first cramp free long ride today! 5 hours of solid riding on TT bike with 40 minute runoff the bike. Only change I have made is using PREPD. The mango and passion fruit. Tastes pretty good too. Bring on Port Macq Ironman!"

Hi, just wanted to give you some feedback. My son is part of SANFL umpire panel. Last year he suffered with cramping and soreness after boundary umpiring. We heard about Prepd through the Panthers and thought we'd give it a trial this year. He has had 2 trial games where he used the sample pack, prime during the day and then the recovery. Both games he didn't get any cramp. One game was 40 degrees. Last week we compared it to him having a banana at half time and hydration drink, plus hydration drink after the game, he began cramping and had soreness the next day. We will now purchase more prepd to get him through the rest of the year. Thank you so much for creating this product."

"We used PREPD as part of Oscars100 Hut 2 Hut. It’s a 100km course covering 10 summits around Mt Buller (5700m elevation gain). We drank Prime the evening before the event and covered 38km on the first day. We then camped on course for the night. As soon as we arrived at the campsite mid afternoon we drank a Recover and this was followed by a Prime 5 hours later before bed. We completed the final 62km the following day. That evening we consumed another bottle of Recover. The Prime and Recover drinks were well tolerated and complemented our hydration and nutrition plan well. We’ll definitely be using these products for future endurance events."

"Just started using PREPD after nutrition issues in last few Ironman & 70.3's. Really happy with results and tastes great. Definitely will be using this more in lead up to Ironman Australia. Fantastic customer service as well."

"Gave the (PREPD) sampler pack a try last week at goondawindi hell of the west and felt strong all the way around especially in the later part of the run where if always struggled. Then was back to training for Ultraman Aus another big week and with another ride/run set this morning I gave the second sampler a go.. Being pretty fatigued, it really helped with today's session look forward to trying it out more and then at Ultraman Aus"

"I trialled the PREPD hydration system last weekend. I took the prime at 8pm. I ran 18k in the bush at 5am the following morning. I live in Brisbane and at that time the humidity was quite high. I drank my usual amount of water during the run and lost a lot of sweat. I have 2 bottles of cold water waiting for me when I get back to the car. Normally i would drink them in 15 minutes after a run like that. I drank the PREPD recovery straight away instead. I found that I only needed to drink around 3/4 of one of those bottles of water. That seemed to be all that I needed. I was in the pool for a 3k swim about 1 hour later. And only consumed 1bidden of water during the swim. And had plenty of energy. I would normally get some foot cramping but had none. And didnt need to chase a lot of water after that effort either. So was very impressed with the effect of the PREPD hydration system.
I will be using the system for my longer training sessions and upcoming IronMan events. And would highly recommend PREPD to any endurance athlete."

"Have to say, pretty impressed with my first trial of PREPD. 33 degrees for a 70min run with efforts, so a perfect testing scenario. Subjectively I felt less drained after the session, objectively I hadn’t lost as much weight as previous runs, so I’d say it worked! As a nerd I’ve been reading the studies on the website and am fascinated by the story behind the development of the starch and drink."

"Ran a 3:25:53 marathon yesterday in reasonably warm conditions and did not feel the slightest bit fatigued. Have been using prepd on my Sunday long runs and have noticed a noticeable difference in the lack of perspiration. It's good stuff. Five out of five sweat beads."
— Bart Baczyk (14 January 2019)
"Trialled PREPD after Ironman WA in training with plans to make it part of my success plan for 70.3 events and above. Taste is great, easy to use and no over thinking of the process. Results in testing was 30% less loss of body mass (through sweat) on long runs at greater intensity and warmer conditions than baseline run. Felt stronger and able to hold higher pace, and importantly recovered to go again the next day. I'll definitely use it on my big training days and as part of race fuelling strategy."

"Fantastic product, I used it for WESTERN SYDNEY 70.3 Ironman. The conditions during the day were hot and humid, the product did exactly what it said it would, I was very happy with it. Cheers David & the team."
— George Stemmer (19 December 2019)
"After an illness and two stomach operations I'm always been looking for a product that can help in long course triathlons and I've finally found PREPD, l had it at 6pm the night before my 17th Ironman and had no stomach issues at all. Great taste, will be using PREPD again next long training session and race for sure."
— Brad Course (5 December 2018)
"Over the past few weeks I have been trailing out the PREPD hydration drinks. One the key races that I used it at was Tour of Tasmania, although this race was not under hot condition it was very important to stay well hydrated because of the amount of sweat produced over the race. For me over this time period I had a very positive experience with the drink, I believe in the science behind it and trusted in all the knowledge behind. When I was racing I was having the Pre Hydration before I went to bed which for a hydration drink is a fair amount of time before I actually got started with racing, the science that is behind the time before you should take is what makes the drink so unique and made me want to give it a try. The recovery drink that is consumed after I finished a race was very much refreshing and actually quiet pleasant to drink. For me the recovery drink was very much the most important part of the whole experience because of the fact that I had to back up for three days on a row over the length of the tour."

"PREPD is liquid gold and I used it both pre and post-race for the Taiwan IRONMAN. I experienced no GI issues at all before, during or following the race and I have never felt so hydrated during the run. I achieved my goal of winning my age group and qualifying for the World Championship in Hawaii in 2019. I also managed to be the second female age group athlete finisher overall. I have since used PREPD for Ironman Western Australia 70.3 and have integrated it as part of my training regime. I have no hesitation in recommending PREPD.”
