Road to Greatness

Where does greatness begin?

Gatorade believes that it begins with hard work – the one with no shortcuts, the kind that’s relentless and that will make you ache and sweat. Whether the goal is to finish a half marathon, climb a mountain peak, or just feel physically stronger overall, preparing yourself in the gym and constantly working to improve is key to winning on game day.

And with this kind of hard work, proper hydration is crucial to be able to push forward and grow stronger.

With a refreshing, light orange – grapefruit flavor, White Lightning is formulated with non-carbonated water that does not cause stomach discomfort; 6% carbohydrates which research has shown to be the optimal level in promoting absorption and providing energy to working muscles; electrolytes for rapid rehydration, and minerals to help prevent cramps.

Atayde added,

You don’t have to be a pro athlete to benefit from proper hydration. For as long as you move and sweat, ypur body needs to to be properly hydrated so you continue to work towards achieving your full potential. We’re confident that our new variant and our new ambassadors will help us reinforce that message.
