Russell Gardner and Ben Cobbett set up Impact Sport Science in January 2012.
Managing Director Russell Gardner has an impressive background in Pharmaceutical Packaging design and is passionate about the health and happiness of his three very sporty children.
Technical Director Ben Cobbett, a qualified sport scientist and strength and conditioning coach has coached from age group to elite level. He has developed products that will ensure when his toddler son does start playing sport his nutritional needs will be looked after.
At elite level hydration is mandatory, youngsters too of all ages need to replenish lost fluids and energy in order to maintain healthy equilibrium.
We believe all players should be given the chance to compete at their best mentally and physically. When competing in sport it is vital that players start matches full of energy, replenish lost energy and fluid between matches and recover properly afterwards, our products will make it possible with immediate Impact helping players to Energise, Hydrate and Recover …the healthy way.
All of our products undergo rigorous testing by HFL for a range of substances banned by WADA to provide the highest level of assurance that they are safer for young athletes to use.
The youngsters of today have more to live up to than ever before. They have busy social lives, extra work load at school/college and with an extra focus on sports peformance there is a significantly increased demand for additional nutrients!
For developing youngsters ensuring a healthy diet is critical but inevitably it is not always a priority with the hectic lifestyles they lead.
In addition to a healthy balanced diet youngsters need to ensure they are replensing the body to ensure they meet the demands of their lifestyle and to ensure they are building the foundation for optimal health long term into adulthood. By feeding the body with the correct nutrients at adolescence in to teenage years sets the stage for adulthood.
Our product range includes a comprehensive source of vitamins and minerals designed specifically for youngsters including but not limited to:
- B vitamins for energy release
- zinc, selenium, iron, folate and vitamin C to aid the enhancement of the immune syste
- Omega 3 for the plethora of benefits to increasing cognitive function to controlling appetite
- Pantothenic acid contributes to normal mental performance helping to support concentration levels when learning
- Calcium, magnesium and zinc all contribute to the maintenance of normal bone health
- Vitamin D (particularly vitamin D3) helps the body absorb calcium from the diet
- Iron forms red blood cells and haemoglobin and helps transport oxygen in the body to the cells and organs
Impact products provide youngsters with the specific minerals and vitamins that they are deficient in to ensure healthy development during their growth spurts.
Teenagers undergo significant physical and psychological changes in their bodies, the necessity for these micronutrients greatly increases. The hormonal imbalances that occur (for both males and females) can be assisted by correct nutrition that adult focussed products simply wont provide.
