Why First Endurance?

Jesse Thomas has been with First Endurance since February of 2012.  He relies on the First Endurance system to keep him healthy and fueled for the demands of professional triathlon racing.   “It’s pretty simple really, First Endurance has the best products. I’m pretty meticulous/analytical and I evaluated a LOT of different options before deciding on a race day nutrition option. I performed the best on First Endurance, so the decision was easy.
