The Fuelixir Mission
Unlocking the power of activity data
Fuelixir’s goal is to make buying and practicing sports nutrition simple. We are passionate about understanding individual variation and building strong customer relationships. The science and research are out there, and everyone should be able to benefit from it. With a highly data-driven approach, Fuelixir achieves this.
What you eat and drink before, during, and after exercise can have a profound effect. With proper nutrition around your workouts one can achieve greater gains via enhanced performance but maybe more importantly by having a more enjoyable workout experience. But sports nutrition is not simple, and the science behind it is complex. There are thousands of products on the market, each with different and unique ingredients, each claiming to offer performance benefits, plus they come in many different forms; powders, gels, bars, chews, to name just a few. How does one choose the right products for themselves?
In addition, quality sports nutrition products are not commonly available on the shelves of local grocery store aisles. High-end supermarkets, speciality sports stores, and nutritional supplement retail chains offer some products, but the staff lack knowledge and are unlikely to take the time to understand each individual’s requirements and preferences.
Internet retailers have made it easy to purchase sports nutrition online, but again, there is no guidance on how to choose products. Some of these retailers have attempted to make buying sports nutrition more convenient by offering a subscription service, but the timing of delivery is usually fixed at monthly intervals. This is not ideal, as workout volumes for each individual can vary greatly due to training cycles, event preparation, injuries, and illness.
In this age of the quantified-self, technology allows us to gather masses of data about ourselves. With the myriad of mobile applications and wearables that facilitate workout and activity tracking one could surely leverage this data to help individuals optimize their nutrition.
