“One of my issues in converting over to longer ultra distance races has been fat metabolism. I’ve noticed a significant change in how my body can convert fat to energy since using Udo’s Oil and I can run longer and stronger than ever before.”

"I understand the importance of keeping natural and healthy fats in my diet for joint and muscle health and hormone balance as well as good recovery from training and racing. So I am happy to join the flora team with all sorts of wonderful products to keep me running happy."
I am a person with many passions, two that really intertwine beautifully – Running and Travelling. I have been doing just that since 2004. Exploring and discovering the world and myself through the highs and lows of the mountains and life. After racing, travelling, and running constantly and mostly successfully around the world in all sorts of distance and terrain, I finally hit rock bottom. But I came back with new life. That running really is just running. It is what I do, not who I am. I am me, more than just a runner!
“As the years pile up (15) the importance of nutrition and supplements remains a constant in keeping my longevity possible. A healthy dose of Miles complimented by 7 Sources, Floradix, a multi-vitamin & probiotics are the staples in my daily routine.”
Perhaps, no one has seen quite the range of courses as Krissy. She appreciates the opportunities to see the world through the lens of running and is thankful for the miles her body continues to let her cover.

She is the race director for the Chuckanut 50k, coaches athletes, and launched her first book, Running Your First Ultra, December 2015.

“As an endurance athlete, getting enough essential fatty acids is crucial for racing, training, and recovery. I use Udo's Oil everyday to ensure that I get everything that I need. I have noticed that I feel more energized on a day to day basis since incorporating Udo's Oil into my diet. Getting all the nutrients I need can be challenging so I turn to high quality products like Flora to make sure I'm well fueled. ”

As she grew up, she learned to appreciate the gift of running and what her body allowed her to accomplish. In 2010 Stephanie ran her first 50k, the USATF 50k trail championship, and finished 2nd. She was hooked. Stephanie loves to spend her time running on trails in the mountains with her dog Riley.

“Udo's Oil and now 7 Sources, has been instrumental in transitioning my body to perform more efficiently on fats and proteins. 7 Sources and Udo's goes in my daily smoothie, on salads, or by itself when I am on the go. I am running faster and stronger than ever and premium quality Flora products are a big part of the reason why.”

I feel more energized during my workouts. A healthy and balanced diet is key for me and Flora and Udo`s Choice products help me achieve this. As a lifetime natural athlete I understand the importance of keeping natural and healthy fats in my daily diet.”
Martin first got involved in bodybuilding at only 14 years of age. Training hard throughout his teens, he never entered any contest- just trained for himself to get better. Later when he moved to the UK in 2005, he went on to compete in his first natural bodybuilding contest in 2007. It was BNBF Southern where he placed 3rd as a Novice. Same year, he won his first contest- NPA South east. After this success as a novice competitor he entered only one contest in 2009 in U-78kg category where he placed 2nd. Then He took time off to concentrate on his studies, future career and further improvements.
Two years later, in 2011, he came back to the stage and entered all NPA qualifiers placing in top 3 every contest, winning the middleweights with BNBF Southern but losing out on the overall. In 2012 He grabbed second at the NPA Midlands and winning every contest ever since- the most precious NPA Mike Williams Classic & PRO-AM and the overall, UKDFBA U-80kg, NPA British middleweight title and UIBBN World Championships.
After realizing an ambition of becoming world champion, he took a break from competition, but continued actively involved with the sport. Since 2011 He has also worked as a personal coach advising individuals on their training and diet, and helping them to achieve their goals.
In 2015, he came back to stage to win his Pro Card.
