Runner

I Take BioAstin because…

I don’t get sunburned since taking BioAstin. I’m too lazy to put on sunscreen, so BioAstin as an internal sunscreen works perfect for me.
It also helps me stay healthy and recover faster which allows me to compete in races every weekend.

What motivates you

I race every weekend to keep the momentum going, and seeing results improve. I’m also motivated by fellow runners.

What’s your favorite workout

Fast paced interval workouts with my training partners.
