“I find that when I use Hornet Juice I do not need anything else to keep me going.”
“I have been using Horne Juice since 2012. I am an over 55 yo mountain bike rider and Hang Glider pilot. When using Hornet Juice on my mountain bike rides, I have measured my uphill performance over a 7 kilometre uphill ride with reduced time greater than 7 minutes as compared to no Hornet Juice. I even have energy left over a the top of the hill to do toe jumps.
Inland Hang Gliding is a tough endurance sport. Flying for several hours in a prone position (laying down with head up) is a high energy sport requiring concentration and sustained energy. The effort required to fly a glider inland is very similar to riding a mountain bike. I use Hornet Juice when flying my hang glider on long distance inland flights. My only source of sustenance when in the air is via my camelback. I mix Hornet Juice with my water supply and use that throughout my flight. When I did my 6.5 hour 254 klm long distance flight across New South Wales (Australia) on 12/12/2012, I prepared myself by drinking one dose of Hornet Juice about an hour before and mixed another dose in my 1.5 litre water bag. Throughout the course of my 6 hour flight I drank that mix. During the flight I go through temperatures from 40 degree C to 5 degree C and vary in height from 500 ft to 10,000 ft. I find that when I use Hornet Juice I do not need anything else to keep me going. After that long flight I still had energy to do a few chin ups and then drove the retrieve car back to base (5 hours drive) as my crew were too tired and worn out!”

“I finished my 11 mile run feeling tired but not totally wiped out”
“I used Hornet Juice for the first time in my life about 3 years ago when, at the age of 49, I signed up to complete my first Half Marathon. I was terrified! I did not know if my body could actually run 13.1 miles!
I had read about Athens and Sydney Olympics and Hornet Juice’s amazing ability to help a person’s endurance increase while exercising over long durations of time. I wondered if at my age, it would be helpful to me in completing my very first Half Marathon. I used Hornet Juice while training for my Half Marathon and began noticing that my body was actually responding positively to the drink. I would drink 8 oz at the start of my 11 mile run, and then at the 8 mile mark, I would drink another 8 oz. I finished my 11 mile run feeling tired but not totally wiped out and without any energy at all! I was amazed that Hornet Juice could help me so much!
Well, I finished my very first Half Marathon with a time of 2:14:17 at the age of 49 years old!
Since then, I have gone on to complete 1 duathlon, and 8 Triathlons!
In 2012, and 2013 I became a ranked US National Triathlete (Age Group 50-54)!
This summer, in June of 2014, I will be testing myself again to see if I can actually complete a Half Ironman (Boise, Idaho) at the age of 53! I will be using Hornet Juice all the way!”

“It was my 6th half-marathon, and I PR’d it by 5 minutes.”
– Michael Tworzydlo, Texas, USA
“I was able to run longer without fatigue and required fewer calories while I was out running.”
“I spent a lot of time last year training for my first 100 mile race. Using Hornet Juice gave me a marked improvement in my endurance. I was able to run longer without fatigue and required fewer calories while I was out running. HJ mixes well with my electrolyte drink and was an easy way to make a 35 hour race a little more manageable. It will definitely be a part of my endurance training going forward.”
– Philip Burnett, Utah, USA
“Hornet Juice was actually a great factor that helped me complete my toughest race yet”
“I have been running Spartan Races for 3 years now and I am currently training to run competitively this year 2014. I am also a Certified Spartan Group X Coach and run a training program that gets individuals Spartan Race ready. I came across Hornet juice while doing some research for natural energy fuel in order to get through the toughest Spartan Races. I actually ran and successfully completed my first Spartan Ultra Beast this past September which consisted of 29+ miles and 70+ obstacles. Hornet Juice was actually a great factor that helped me complete my toughest race yet…which is why I placed another order because I’ll definitely be using it again for all of my Spartan Races. ”
– Jonathan Aragon, New Jersey, USA
“I was able to run longer without fatigue and required fewer calories while I was out running.”
“My husband and I are marathoners and we both find it does “something” that helps us to stay focused during our long runs and more intense workouts. On our long runs, we usually take it somewhere between 12 and 14 miles and it allows us to put our heads down and get the 20+ miles done with confidence. Another interesting side effect is that we find we are not nearly as ravenous as we were after these long runs.
Magical stuff – just the smelling it tells our bodies it’s time to run!”
– Diane and Rick Knowles
“Beat My Personal Time & Won A Medal!”
“I am a keen runner and I am doing my 2nd marathon in Edinburgh in May, I ordered a pack of 4 and have just put in another order. I do feel the Hornet Juice has helped. I have felt stonger on runs and been doing hill work more which I don’t normally but have felt I had more energy.
I think it works best early morning before eating. I did a 15-mile run last week and didnt feel too bad and could have kept going, so for now i think it does work and will use it for the marathon”.
– Jackie Robertson, Runner Tayside, United Kingdom
“Long Runs Over 3 Hours & Finish Strongly.”
“I have been using Hornet Juice before my training sessions that are preparing me to run in the Great Ocean road marathon in Victoria, Australia on May 20. I have noticed an improvement in my endurance in my speed training and my long runs.
I have been able to push my long runs out over 3 hours and finish strongly, which has also aided in my recovery for my next session. The true test will be on May 20 when I line up for the 45 kilometres of pain that is the Great Ocean road marathon where I will be attempting to run under 3 hrs for the marathon distance and then finish the full 45 km strongly.”
– Steve Van Rooyen, Marathoner, Australia
“I Can Run Without A Sharp Sugar Drop.”
“I have used Hornet Juice several times now it has another benefit that isn’t even mentioned if you have insulin-dependent diabetes…which I do. I am a long-distance runner and without Hornet Juice, unless my blood sugar is very high before I run. I always end up with low blood sugar near the beginning of a race which slows me down for two reasons: because there is always the zone when you aren’t sure whether you’re low or tired and because you then have to fight with gel packs while everyone else is still going strong.
With Hornet Juice, my blood sugar can start at a fairly normal level and it stays there for an extended length of time! Knowing you can run without worrying about a sharp drop is a huge advantage. And I do notice energy bursts too. Great stuff Hornet Juice…”
– Tina Amiri, Diabetic Runner, Ontario, Canada
“Steps Up My Aerobic Capacity.”
I have used creatine and many other supplements and Hornet Juice steps up my aerobic capacity like no other product.”
– Steve Dohring, Triathlete, FL, USA
“I Am 65yo & Slightly Disabled But…”
I stopped at a water station mixed up a packet of Hornet juice with Gatorade, stretched some & away I went! The cramping in my calf muscle eased & all downhill from there. My energy levels were incredible as upon crossing the finish line I was not the least bit tired or fatigued.
I have seen a movie clip of me flying to the finish line & I look so relaxed & loose almost unbelievable!! This was my first Half Marathon & not my last! Would you believe I am 65 years old & slightly disabled too? I am on a knee replacement surgical waiting list as I need 2 new knees (runner of 27 years). I must wear 2 custom-made knee braces called “Unloaders” which are heavy at 4-5 pounds just to run. Even so, I was not tired at all & as fresh as when I started.
What a product your Hornet Juice is & I most definitely recommend it to anyone who wants increased stamina & endurance. I have only one suggestion & that is to tweak the packaging. Your packet needs an easy to open tear strip. I had mine precut & carried in a baggie in my bra with a little stir stick!”
– Lee Turner, 65yo Runner, Vancouver, Canada
“My Pulse Stays Low During My Runs…”
(Note: Bryan didn’t get to send a photo when he sent his testimonial, but what an awesome feedback from this 46yo runner.)
“I am a 46-year-old distance runner who has been running and competing continually on the track and roads for 33 years. I’ve been using Hornet Juice before my hard workouts (about every other day) during the past two months (November and December).
Normally my training during the cold winter months is mostly of the aerobic, base-building nature. I can’t believe some of the workouts I am cranking out day after day on my treadmill. My pulse stays quite low during the runs even though I am pushing the pace, and I have no hint of aches or pains after the workouts. I am probably in the best shape I’ve ever been in this time of year.
Also, while many people around me at work and church are coming down with colds and flu, I haven’t even experienced a sniffle yet. This is just as important to me as being able to train harder. I’ve tried many performance supplements over the years. Some help, while many don’t do much for me. Hornet Juice is definitely making a positive difference.”
– Bryan Eder, Runner, Williston, North Dakota, USA
“I Feel Stronger Than Before…”
– Lawrence Chung, Cyclist & Runner, Hongkong
“I Wasn’t Expecting Instant Results, But…”
“My initial order arrived yesterday & I used HJ for the first time last night. I wasn’t expecting instant results… but duly completed a regular six-mile circuit in my quickest time this year. And it was my second run of the day! Hardly scientific proof, but it’s certainly encouraged me to continue using it.
You’ll have gathered that running is my thing… I’m a middle-aged (47), middle-of-the-road club runner, racing pretty regularly at various distances but starting to focus more on the marathon, as it’s the only distance where I’m still improving my PB.
I ran 3:05 at London this year & have dared to start thinking about setting out to break the 3-hour barrier in 2012. Here’s hoping that Hornet Juice will help me find those precious five minutes! I’ll keep you posted…”
– David Emanuel, Marathoner, United Kingdom
“I Can Hold On For Hours Longer On Deep Snow & Cliffs…”
(Note: Thomas didn’t send a photo when he sent his testimonial, but this Wyoming snowboarder definitely loves his “juice”!)
“Hello there! Yes the Hornet Juice sports drink is great!! I turn more and more of my friends on to it everyday!!! We do a lot of snowboard and rock climb stuff out here in Jackson Wyoming and the sports packets come in handy when you are out in the hills all day.
Definitely feel less of the pump and can hold on for hours longer on both the deep snow and the cliffs. thanks a lot. Hornet Juice really does “keep the juices flow’in” thanks for the Hornet Juice.”
– Thomas Gatehouse, Snowboarder, Wyoming, USA
“I tested Hornet Juice for the first time before an aerobics class noticed effects after 20mins. Lasted 2 hours. This was a trial test for the London Marathon which I ran on Hornet Juice 1 sachet before run 2 during a 4 hour marathon. I was impressed. Certainly noticed a difference in performance and will be using again.”
– Sarah Sweeting, Runner, United KingdomTweet: “Top Finish & New PR.”
“I Completed The Race An Hour Ahead!”
“I had my first 50 mile ultra marathon this weekend and kept myself hydrated with your product for the duration. I felt alert and energised throughout and managed to complete the event an hour ahead of my planned time. I’ll be placing another order before the next race!”
– Jeni Lewthwaite, Ultramarathoner, United Kingdom
“I Ran A 4:13, A Dream Run For Me!”
Took 1 sachet 15 min prior to start, another at 2 hours. Also plenty of gels and sports drink. I felt fresh the whole way and know that Hornet Juice had a part to play in this. I am spreading the word (keep and eye on the Two Gomers Run A Marathon podcast). Thanks again!”
– Richard Everson, Runner, Canberra, Australia
“I’ve also been using it during my soccer matches and I have more than enough energy for the second half!”
(Note: Mark wasn’t able to include a photo went he sent us his testimonial, but what a great feedback from this runner from Arizona!)
“Unfortunately my supply of Hornet Juice didn’t arrive until after my P.F. Chang’s Marathon in Phoenix, AZ, but I have been using it for my post race recovery; and I have to tell you that it’s terrific!
I wish I could have used it during the marathon, but I know that I have my hands on something special, and I will make it a necessary part of my next marathon in San Francisco later on this year. I’ve also been using it during my soccer matches and I have more than enough energy for the second half! Well done.”
– Mark Golden, Marathoner, Tucson, Arizona, USA
“I Could Immediately See The Difference!”
When I tried Hornet Juice, I could immediately see the difference. I felt stronger and my endurance improved significantly. I would definitively recommend Hornet Juice for anyone trying to take training to the next level. ”
– Gabriela Contreras, Runner, Houston, TX, USA
Tweet: “Recovery Was Fantastic!”
“I Now Know Why You Offer A Money-Back Guarantee!”
After my “Juiced” ride today, I had lost five pounds and got down to 6.6% body fat. My largest previous post-ride weight loss was 3 pounds, and I’ve never measured less than 8% body fat until today! That proves to me that, with Hornet Juice, I’m burning more fat for energy, of which I had plenty today! The bonus is that I will weigh less and less as I climb higher and higher, with no significant loss of energy!
I now know why you offer a money-back promise. Thank you!”.
– Robert Firestine, Mountain Biker, CA, USA
“Ran In Record Time & Felt As Fresh As A Daisy!”
“…Since stepping up my mileage to 15-20 mile runs for the long run session over the past couple of weeks I have noticed a massive change. Was out last night to do 8 miles of hard hills. Did that in record time and at the end felt as fresh as a daisy.
When trained for marathons in the past hill work has always been the killer and really struggled with them and the long runs. Yet my times are on average nearly a full minute ahead of previous marathon miles per minute pace.
Only 10 weeks to New York Marathon and Liverpool Marathon 4 weeks before that. In the circumstances think I best order myself some more Hornet Juice!!!”
– Robert Gil, Marathoner, United Kingdom
Tweet: “I Felt Fully Fueled The Whole Time. I Was Amazed.”
“Sensation was different right away.”
“I am 35 year old long distance runner. I took Hornet Juice for my 2 workouts, one for trying impact on endurance and second one for trying impact on speed. Sensation was different right away, I felt stronger right from the start.
I was going on hilly 15 miles long training and it was incredible, keeping strong pace without problems and with lower heartbeat, like never before. And the second one was 2 mile race, I did not notice so great effect at the maximum speed, but nevertheless the very good race and with minimum sign of fatigue the other day in both cases.
– Damir Simunic, Runner, Crotia
“I Shaved Off 24 Minutes In The NYC Half!”
It was so amazing I was scared to be without it! But what I’m really writing to tell you & anyone who is thinking about trying the Hornet Juice is this – I shaved off 24 minutes from my last half marathon time! I finished the NYC Half Marathon at 1:49:09!
I had absolutely no problem with muscle recovery! After 5 half Marathons & the aid of my Hornet Juice I am planning on training for a full Marathon in 2013.”
– Maria Krawczyk, Runner, New York, USA
“Did A 100 Mile Race!”
I finished in 26 hours and 10 min and will definitely use your product in the future!”

Tweet: “I Was Blown Away! I Wanna Get My Team To Try It!”
“Highest Ever Finish In Ironman!”
“I used Hornet Juice in my training to build up to Ironman France 2010 to help me train better and longer. HJ is good for my recovery as well.
I used Hornet Juice in the Ironman and it helped me place in my highest ever finish which is 12th overall, 2nd in my age group.
Thanks again Hornet Juice!”

– Annette Lombardo, Triathlete, Colorado, USA
“I Can Go A Lot Longer!”
Hornet Juice helped with the pain I usually have in my shoulders on my long swim that I usually take aspirin for. I feel so much more at ease and can go for a lot longer than before taking the Hornet Juice I’ll be ordering again very soon.”

“my longer training sessions are greatly improved”
“I am a 47 year old triathlete and cyclist competing in road races and criteriums with an occassional time trial. My performances had been suffering for months due to over training and improper recovery. As a 215 Lb man competing against quite a number of 150 to 165 LB men in endurance races, my fuel intake need is basically doube. As part of a diet change and recovery improvement effort Hornet Juice was recommended by my accupuncturist as a potent way to improve the fat burning process during races and improving stamina.
The results are no joke, my longer training sessions are greatly improved while utilizing the same race fuel and hydration. I have moved up in category and am looking forward to continued improvements over the next few months.”
– Tony “The Hammer” Carr, FL, United States
