52. Fuel Simply with Endurance Tap

In 2014, two friends came together to solve a problem in the sports nutrition market. Matt Smith and Patrick Stark, both passionate about sports and nutrition, recognized the market lacked real natural fuelling options that not only tasted great, but contained real food; that’s when Endurance Tap was born. To start, Matt and Pat didn’t have to look any further than Canada’s number one export, maple syrup, and after months of experimenting with different ingredients, settled on just two more simple ingredients; ginger and sea salt. The combination of these three simple ingredients not only resulted in an all natural source of fuel for endurance athletes, they’re easy to consume, are easy on the stomach, and ensure athletes avoid sugar spikes.

In this episode, we’ll learn more about the genesis of Endurance Tap and all the great work Matt and Pat, together with the Global Endurance Tap Changemakers like Gary Robbins, Kim McMullen, Jacob Puzey, and others are doing to combine their passion for endurance sports with their personal passion for organizations that better the planet and their communities.
