Tim Lawson is probably best known as the founder of the pioneering sports nutrition company Science in Sport. He is now the brains behind Secret Training bringing new thinking to Sports Nutrition and Race Day Personal Care. Tim will be at the Clubroom on Monday 2nd February from 8pm (after the turbo session). His session will include:
- A short talk from Tim, including information such as what goes into an advanced isotonic energy gel and what puts the ‘super’ into a ‘super hydration’ drink
- Some free samples of the new Secret Training nutrition range
- An introductory offer on the STRIP race day personal care range
- Question & Answer session with Tim where he will answer you nutrition or training questions
Those of you that attended the Geoff Bewley Memorial CX at Otterspool may remember Secret Training were one of the main sponsors and offered great support to the event, providing Race Day Personal Care Kits to the winners. Tim is a long-time fan of the Century so please come along and take advantage of this opportunity to speak to one of the leading brains in this area.
Below is some more information on the background of Secret Training:
Secret Training is the brainchild of European Champion Track Cyclist, Tim Lawson. An elite masters athlete, with over twenty years’ experience in developing the best sports nutrition products, working with athletes from beginners, right up to Olympic medalists and Pro Tour winners.
“Coming from the North West of England where there’s more rainfall than anywhere else in the UK, training in the most extreme of conditions, whether it’s the cross winds of Winter Hill or further afield in the blistering heat of Mount Teide, I needed a range of quality, trustworthy and dependable products, that worked wherever and whenever.” Obsessive and accident prone by his own admission, Tim’s had more than his fair share of spectacular spills which have kept him requiring regular sports therapy to keep him on his trusty steed.
“Having read the lengthy and often scary ingredients list on a variety of oil and rub product labels, it was clear there was scope to create better formulas and work towards a fully, ‘informed sport’ brand. Made for athletes, by athletes.”
Produced with a clear purpose to look after your personal care, drilled down to the fundamental need of each of these products and using appropriate technology to provide effective race day solutions, prioritising the health and performance of the athlete. Developed and tested with highspeed track cyclists, in the mud of the world cup cyclo-cross circuit and on endurance rides, Secret Training (STRIP) was born.
