First Endurance is proud to announce the 2016 triathlon team following a very successful season in which, collectively, our athletes tallied over 30 victories and 40 more podiums. We value our long lasting relationships with our athletes who we collaborate with in the development and testing of our products and who also rely on First Endurance in order to be fueled to get the most out of their grueling workouts and race schedules.

In 2016 First Endurance will partner with 17 triathletes, including 16 returning committed athletes and one newcomer, South African Jeanni Seymour, a 5th year pro who claimed her first professional win in a 70.3 last year at Ironman 70.3 Austin. Seymour commented “when I first came over to the US from South Africa in 2012, it was my first season as a professional and I came over to Boulder, Colorado (now my home base) for the summer to train and race and it was the Lovato’s who first introduce me to the amazing products of First Endurance.”

Seymour is planning to make her 2016 debut in April at Ironman 70.3 Texas and will be looking to build upon her results and consistency this year so she can meet her long term goal to be competitive at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in 2017 and 2018. A few years further ahead in her sights, she has her eyes on moving over to the full Ironman distance. “I am willing to work harder than anyone and I feel like this is my biggest strength, my willingness to succeed, relentless work ethic and perseverance.”

Jeanni Seymour IM Austin 70.3 Win“My favorite product by First Endurance is the Cappuccino flavored Ultragen. It is by far the best tasting recovery drink I have ever had. It has the perfect amount of simple carbohydrate and protein which speed up the recovery process after workouts. This has been a vital part of my training routine and my recover would not be the same without Ultragen!”
