Over the past 2-3 years I’ve been working hard off the golf course to become more healthy. Through better diet, mountain biking, backcountry skiing, downhill skiing, and working out in the gym I’ve dropped 70 pounds! Woot. When I ride hard on the mountain bike or work hard skinning up a mountain at 10,000 feet, I lose a lot of fluids. Hydration is a must.
This summer I’ve been using Electrolit Zero for hydration with fantastic results. I’ll try to drink a whole bottle, or as much as I can about 30-45 minutes before my activity. I’ve noticed a huge difference in my energy level, power and endurance when I do this, especially in the hotter temperatures. In the middle of last summer when the temps were 100+ I would end up suffering a migraine style headache in my right eyeball. I assumed it was due to dehydration and/or brightness. This summer, when downing Electrolit Zero before my ride, no headaches! I even did a brutal ride when we were breaking temperature records here and it hit 107. I felt surprisingly good after that ride and no headache.
Zero Sugar – Zero Calories
The Electrolit Zero is just that, zero sugar and zero calories. In part of my better healthy lifestyle I reduced sugar intake big. Sugary drinks actually taste bad to me now that I’m used to the zero.
There are three Zero flavors: Lemon Breeze, Fruit Punch Splash, and Berry Blast. My favorite flavor is Lemon Breeze but they all taste great, especially considering they are zero sugar.

Staying hydrated on the golf course is just as important as other activities. Being dehydrated on the course means muscle stiffness and cramps, energy loss, and perhaps worst of all loss of focus.
