"Man, hydration is everything. Fighters cut a ridiculous amount of weight before competition, which means a loss of a lot of water. Our bodies rely on water/hydration to function properly more than anything. For anyone cutting weight and/or needing hydration, take a look at our Max EPH Extreme. This product was designed for professional boxers and MMA fighters. Each serving contains more electrolytes than 3 bottles of the leading sports hydration drinks. This product is no joke," stated Mike Borza, founder of Maximum Nutrition, who spoke about their current line of products and discussed the important difference between the nutritional needs of men and women. Check it out!
PC: Mike, how were your holidays and how is life treating you?
MB: Hey Percy. Everything is great my man. Life is good. Thanks for taking the time to speak with me.
PC: Man, a lot is going on with the Maximum Nutrition website and the products that you guys added. You guys seem to have gone from selling supplements strictly for athletes and making it a one-stop shop for anyone needing supplements.
MB: That's correct. We now offer over 300 products that help all walks of life. Whether you're a professional hardcore athlete, gym rat, weekend warrior, teenager, pregnant or just looking for a healthier lifestyle, we have what you need. We offer everything, from kids and prenatal vitamins up to hardcore supplements for boxers and MMA fighters. If you need, we have it!
PC: Of course we are fresh off of the New Year and everyone has made the resolution to lose weight. So tell me about Incinergy EFX?
MB: This is our most advanced fat burner to date. Unlike most of the fat burners available that only amp you up to give you a sense that it's doing something, Incinergy EFX targets weight loss/fat burning from multiple pathways. All ingredients work synergistically to help remove excess water, speed up metabolism, reduce hunger and cravings, boost energy and focus, increase core body temperature (thermogenic), reduce stressed related weight gain and increases blood circulation. If you're looking for an "All-In-One" fat burner, this is it.
PC: Now, everyone is not aiming to lose weight of course. You have some people wanting to put on muscle mass and weight. What do you guys have for them?
MB: Gaining muscle is actually harder than losing weight. We have developed some of the top supplements available to stimulate muscle growth. Our test booster, Testobol X Extreme, is one of the top test boosters on the market. We sell our products in 30 countries and Testobol X Extreme is the number one selling test booster for all of our distributors. Our pre-workout drink, Nitro Blast, is one of the best tasting, mind-blowing pump formulas available. It doesn't contain any fillers; only pharmaceutical grade active ingredients. If you're looking for proteins and weight gainers, our Max Pro Tech and Max Pro Mass are your best choice; great tasting, mixes easily and are highly digestible. These are just a few of our top sellers, but we have a ton of other great products for muscle gain. You can checkout other great products under the creatine, nitric oxide, and testosterone/growth categories at www.getmaxxed.com.
PC: Something that I have noticed is that you guys have supplements designed specifically for women. What is the difference in these supplements and how can they benefit female athletes and just common lifters?
MB: Women require different ingredient dosages than men. Our women's line was designed specifically for female athletes and women looking to lose weight and/or achieve a better quality of life. Our women's line includes multi vitamins, pre-natal products, protein formulas, weight loss products, endurance supplements and pre-workout drinks. We have an extensive knowledge with women's nutrition. We have clinically worked with teenage, middle age, elderly and pregnant women, as well as top female MMA fighters for their nutrition and supplement needs. Men and women's bodies are not the same; neither are their nutritional and supplementation requirements.
PC: You guys also have 2 male sexual support supplements on the market. Most guys see sexual support supplements as being needed for some sort of deficiency. Is this more of an aid to improve sexual activity or is it for deficiencies?
MB: These can be used for both. Our Virility Complex increases testosterone production, libdo (sex drive), blood circulation for stronger erections and better sexual vigor. Our Everlast ETX helps increase stamina so you last longer; reduces/eliminates pre-mature ejaculation. These products can be used by men looking to perform better for their partner, or for men that have ED concerns from various medical issues.
PC: Usually I hate protein shakes because they are very thick and hard to get down. I'm not just saying this, but you guys truly made a great shake that didn't sacrifice taste. What separates your protein shake from the competition?
MB: Two things: the high quality of our raw protein and our natural tasting flavoring systems. Our raw protein is a highly processed protein source. This eliminates all of the garbage that causes side effects with other protein shakes, such as bloating, cramping and digestive issues. Our flavoring systems are second to none. We have a dedicated laboratory developing these flavors to ensure that every flavored powder we offer has the best taste possible. To give you an example of how good our flavor is, we offer a kid's protein that parents rave about. They can't get their kids to eat or drink anything, but their kids love our proteins. For all of us that have kids and know how picky they are, this is quite an accomplishment.
PC: What advice would you give to people who make these great sounding resolutions, but 2 months into the New Year, they are breaking them? Is it mainly about finding a supplement that works for you, being realistic in your goals, and avoiding making the same resolution the following year (laughing)?
MB: It's a combination of setting realistic goals, lifestyle change, and supplements that actually work. I have been working with weight loss clients for a very long time. Most clients that fall off the wagon go completely gung ho in the beginning then fizzle. They have no mapped out plan. They need proper supplementation and constant reminders of their goals to stay the course. It's very easy to lose sight of what you're trying to accomplish when you've been in a certain mode for a very long time. I always recommend my clients put a picture of themselves on the fridge so they can see it every time they go to open the door. This is a highly effective reminder to put down the cheesecake and grab a carrot (laughing).
PC: Last but not least, especially when dealing with fighters, these guys cut an extraordinary amount of weight. How important is the rehydration phase of cutting weight and what do you guys have on the market that can aid these guys?
MB: Man, hydration is everything. Fighters cut a ridiculous amount of weight before competition, which means a loss of a lot of water. Our bodies rely on water/hydration to function properly more than anything. For anyone cutting weight and/or needing hydration, take a look at our Max EPH Extreme. This product was designed for professional boxers and MMA fighters. Each serving contains more electrolytes than 3 bottles of the leading sports hydration drinks. This product is no joke! You will train 4-5 times longer than normal without getting fatigued and dehydrated.
PC: I have used your supplements for close to 6 years now and they are truly amazing. I appreciate your time as always. Is there anything else you want to say before I let you go? And be sure to let people know where they can find you guys; website and social media.
