MATT BEVILACQUA

Ironman

Clifton Beach SLSC

Matt hails from Clifton Beach Surf Lifesaving Club in Tasmania, the southernmost club in Australia, and was the first Tasmanian ever to qualify for the Nutri Grain Ironman Series. In an outstanding debut season, he finished the final round with a podium result to give him an overall position of 8th place, an outstanding result as the youngest male competitor in that series. Matt is currently preparing for the 2015-16 Series off the back of a silver medal in the recent World Ironman Championship in France. 

Matt trains six days a week at the legendary Michael King Ironman Academy in Mooloolaba. On top of this he finds time to work as a lifeguard and is in his third year of a science/education degree at the University of the Sunshine Coast. 

In July 2015, Matt added another title to his ­impressive resume, winning the 19th Annual 52km Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships and becoming the first person to win in their first-ever ­appearance. The event crosses the Ka'iwi Channel, known to have some of the world's most treacherous waters.

“It was one of the hardest races in the event’s history, with hardly any wind at all,” Matt said. “It dawned on me halfway that we definitely weren’t going for 4 hours 30 minutes like normal but for at least an hour on top of that. It’s a dream I’ve had ever since paddling in the southerly winds of Clifton Beach and to finally complete the channel, let alone win is just awesome and it’s still sinking in.”

To maintain my massive workload, I can rely on IsoWhey Sports to aid my recovery and allow me to back up day after day. Not only with effective products formulations, but with no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners.

ELLIE PICKEN

Winner of the U19 Coolangatta Gold 2014

Clifton Beach SLSC

After achieving multiple state ironwoman titles in Tasmania, and making national ironwoman finals and state teams, Ellie made the decision in November 2013 to move out of home at age 18 to join Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club and train with the Michael King Iron Man Academy.

In November 2014, after just one year training under the guidance of renowned coach Michael King, Ellie won the Under 19 Coolangatta Gold by a margin of more than 13 minutes. Ellie's time in the under 19 event would have won the elite event by more than 6 minutes.

She juggles training twice a day, six days a week whilst studying a Bachelor of Nursing at the University of the Sunshine Coast.

Ellie will now turn her attention to the Surf Ironman Qualifying Series in the hope to qualify for the Nutri Grain Ironwoman Series, which consists of the top 15 ironwomen in the world.

Chris Morgan

2 Olympic Games

5 World Championships

Bronze medalist at the 2012 London Olympic Games

At university in 2003, Chris began his rowing career and quickly rose through the ranks to win a gold medal at the 2004 World Uni Games. He went on to make the senior national team in 2005. The 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing saw Chris' crew set the world's fastest time in the heats, but falter and come 4th in the finals.

After the disappointment of Beijing, Chris temporarily stepped away from rowing and, despite barely being able to swim, took up triathlon. After less than six months training, he competed in the 2009 Australian Ironman Championships. At the completion of the swim leg, Chris was not even in the top 500. However, he proceeded to post the fastest (non-professional) cycle leg and completed a solid run leg to finish 34th overall and qualify for a spot at the World Ironman Championships. Chris has since returned to his rowing training with a renewed enthusiasm.

Dr Jason McMillan

B.App.Sc.(Clin.Sc); B.Chiro Sc
Chiropractor

Dr Jason McMillan runs a group of successful chiropractic and allied health practices in Victoria. They utilise a combination of chiropractic and allied health treatment modalities, combined with diet, nutritional, training/rehabilitation, lifestyle and ergonomic intervention in order to enable patients to experience a life of optimal wellbeing. His unique approach has attracted many elite professional and amateur athletes to the practices, along with members of the general public who are motivated by living life to their full potential.

Jason has participated in elite levels of sport in the past and remains dedicated to a very stringent training program, which he combines with an extremely busy work schedule and family life. Jason is an advocate of maximal intensity training involving gym, running, swimming, mountain biking and surfing. He subscribes to a Paleo diet and lives a very “clean” lifestyle.

Jason was introduced to the IsoWhey Sports range in June 2014, having never utilised sports supplements before. He has been amazed by the improvement in his performance levels, with over 20% improvement in strength and a substantial improvement in endurance. His recovery is significantly better, enabling him to train at maximal intensity every day. At age 41, he feels he is fitter, stronger and is performing to a higher level of general strength and fitness than he has at any other stage in his life.

As a health practitioner who is passionate about how important a great diet and nutrition are to optimal health, it is crucial that anything Jason consumes is pure and free of artificial colours, preservatives, flavours, sugars, etc. IsoWhey Sports not only satisfies these criteria, the specific nature of the various products makes it tailored to different types of athletes/activities and phases of training. 

"I recommend IsoWhey Sports to all of my patients (elite athletes and the general public) who wish to get the very best out of themselves and perform to their best, but do so in the most healthy and complimentary fashion possible"

IsoWhey Sports products are the most beneficial natural sporting supplements that I have come across in my 18 year career as a healthcare practitioner and lifetime of elite training and performance.

Kain Jackson

Co-Founder of Footprints Foundation

Completed 10 Marathons in 10 Days

In September 2014, Kain ran 10 marathons in 10 days as part of a marketing initiative for Footprints Foundation, a non-profit organisation that he established with wife Nicole. The Foundation supports local women and their families whilst they are undergoing treatment for breast cancer by implementing a Volunteer Support Program to assist with domestic duties and family support.

Leading up to and during the runs, Pre-Workout Fuel, Electrolyte Formula, Ultimate Endurance, Refuel & Rebuild and High Protein, High Carb were utilised to ensure Kain remained healthy and successfully completed the marathons. His recovery following all 10 marathons was amazing, and his overall health was never compromised due to the ongoing benefits of IsoWhey Sports. He lost only 500 grams over the 10 days, did not experience cramping, had no injuries and fully recovered within two days of the final marathon.

Having run marathons before but without the benefits of IsoWhey Sports products, Kain can confidently say that this feat would never have been possible without IsoWhey Sports.

Joshua Hering

Joshua Hering is a 15 year old elite junior soccer player on contract to a club in the German Premier League.

As a goal keeper, the demands on his growing body are immense as he strives to train and develop a wide range of skills and physical attributes to allow him to secure a long term career in European professional football.

Joshua has been using IsoWhey Sports products since June 2015 and believes they are an integral part of his preparation and recovery.

"I was introduced to IsoWhey Sports through Dr Jason McMillan in June 2015. Jason is a close family friend who we sought the opinion of to review my training, strength and conditioning and diet. These are key elements to enable me as a growing athlete to be able to reach my optimal levels of performance whilst still growing and developing physically. During my off season, Jason created new training techniques and programs for me to be able to become fitter, stronger and more durable. He supported this with dietary change and IsoWhey Sports Products Pre-Workout Formula and Refuel & Rebuild. The combination of the new training techniques, with a new diet and the IsoWhey Sports products have been incredible. I have been able to handle a much higher training load, am stronger and more powerful and have been able to train and perform to much higher levels of performance and consistency.

I totally understand the importance of great quality nutrition and supplementation in enabling athletes like me to reach our full potential and thank IsoWhey for creating such excellent products that are integral to my daily routine."

David Byrne

Running has been a major part of my life since I was in my early teens. The first of many significant achievements was being the first little athlete to run under 2 minutes for 800 meters and I represented Australia at World Junior Championships and World Cross Country.

I have been a passionate distance runner for over 20 years and highlights throughout this period range are winning the Australian junior title over 1500m in 2000 and placing 2nd in the open national 1,500m in 2003; finishing third in the Zatopek 10,000m in 2005 and most recently winning the 6ft Track Marathon.

While my background is in track racing, I have a newfound love of the trails that has seen me return to training after giving the sport away in 2006.
Now, the focus is on endurance and hitting the trails and mountains. It’s a new journey and so far I have had some great success in Australia’s biggest races. In the years ahead I already have several races in New Zealand, Europe and the US lined up as I’m keen on taking on the challenge of some of the most iconic global trail races!
