U-Thrive launch sports supplements and online community
May 08, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsU Thrive, the UK based sports nutrition community have just launched their website www.U-Thrive.com which welcomes provides information, advice and help from experts in nutrition, sports and recreational exercise.
The website not only intends to provide sports nutrition advice and training plan advice, there is also an online store offering over 1500 nutrition and wellness products including many of leading sports nutrition brands such as Maximuscle, Cytosport, CNP Professional, Muscletech, USN, BSN and Optimum Nutrition just to name a few.
Founded by Tony Gay and Matt Giles, U Thrive was created to provide online training and sports nutrition support inspire people at all levels to better fitness:
"The vision for Thrive came about when a group of friends decided that they wanted to create a place for anyone out there who wants to make the most of their life rather just existing day-to-day. U Thrive is friendly and approachable – everyone is welcome, whether you are a beginner or an Olympic athlete."
Due to the lack of clear guidance on sports nutrition and training plan support online, the founders identified a clear need for advice that is highly accessible and easy to understand:
"The world of sports nutrition needs to be less confusing – that's why we set up u-thrive.com to help people correctly match their nutritional needs with their chosen physical activity. "
Not only is the guidance and the advice free, it is provided by the UK's leading experts including triathelete Fiona Ford and the products are heavily discounted providing huge savings over most high street retailers with free delivery on all UK mainland orders.
