Performance is a lemon lime flavored pre workout drink developed for elite athletes, it has been supplied for over 5 years to professional & olympic teams. It is banned substance free and batch tested to ensure WADA compliance. It comes in a larger 38mm dosing cap on a 330ml bottle of spring water (one dose). Performance is the optimal combination of Beta Alanine, Creapure Creatine, BCAA's and caffeine. Results speak for themselves with this formulation, it lives up to its name without the need for preservatives or unnecessary ingredients.
Beta Alanine is a non essential amino acid that increases the production of Carnosine in the body. Carnosine balances our pH levels and buffers hydrogen ions which are the primary cause of fatigue in our muscles during training.
In addition, it is an important intramuscular buffer, constituting 10-20% of the total buffering capacity in type I and II muscle fibres. This improves the ability to tolerate high levels of lactic acid.
Scientific studies have proven that Beta Alanine;
Performance contains 1940mg of Beta Alanine, we believe this is the optimal dose when combined with the other hero ingredients below.
Creapure Creatine is made in Germany as is known as one of the purest and best quality micronized creatine monohydrates. It is the only creatine that is consistently tested to be free from unnneccesary additives and impurities. Creapure creatine is 99.99% pure creatine monohydrate, as good as it gets!
Creatine has been proven to increase physical performance during hard training and competition, it is highly recommended for high performance athletes, bodybuilders and anyone undertaking strenuous physical activity.
BCAA’s are branched chain amino acids, they are anamino acids that have aliphatic side-chains with a branch (a central carbon atom bound to three or more carbon atoms). Among the proteinogenic amino acids, there are three BCAAs: leucine, isoleucine and valine.
BCAA’s increase the rate of protein synthesis in the body, they also reduce protein breakdown. This contributes to maintaining muscle mass which is critical for post workout recovery.
Caffeine is readily absorbed by the body providing increased energy and mental alertness.
Performance is an elite level supplement developed with one of New Zealand’s leading strength & conditioning coaches to maximize the bodies performance as it engages in and recovers from exercise. It is used regularly by some of New Zealand’s most famous and internationally renowned sports teams. The formulation is a combination of Beta Alanine, Creatine, BCAA’s and caffeine. Performance is batch tested by a WADA approved laboratory.
Founded in my flat kitchen in May Street, Hamilton, in 2010, after a mate and I were sick of over priced, over hyped and underwhelming supplements. We were also concerned about contamination by banned substances as we were both playing rugby and I was involved in the Waikato Academy.
Using my Chemical Engineering background, and plenty of research into sports supplements and exercise physiology, we went about developing our own product. It took one year of iterations to get to the current formulation. We were our own guinea pigs!
Word was getting around about what we had done, and one of our top rugby teams ended up taking the product on the 2010 end of year tour. Come 2011 and we supplied Performance to more RWC teams that year. Now here we are 5 years on, trying to make the product available to all athletes, not just those at the top.

Performance was developed specifically as a pre-workout / pre-competition drink for athletes; it is now available to the general public and suitable for anyone seeking a higher level of energy.
Some studies have shown supplementation with β-alanine increases the concentration of carnosine in muscles, decrease fatigue in athletes and increasing total muscular work done. In addition, it is an important intramuscular buffer, constituting 10-20% of the total buffering capacity in type I and II muscle fibres. This improves the ability to tolerate high levels of lactic acid.
Some people experience a slight tingling sensation in the skin after drinking Performance. This is caused by the beta-alanine binding to nerve receptors and causing them to fire, the sensation is called parathesia and only lasts for a short period of time.
There are three BCAA’s; Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. They are among the nine essential amino acids which account for 35% of essential amino acids in muscle proteins and 40% of preformed amino acids required by the human body. BCAA’s are known to increase muscle retention and maximize fat loss, they provide an added advantage over non BCAA supplements.
Yes, as Performance is used by some of New Zealands leading professional sports teams we can put together a package that suits you. In many cases just purchasing the caps and our refillable bottle is the best way to go for teams on the move.
