I recently had the occasion to hike the Highline Trail in Glacier National Park. The trail starts at about 4,200 feet, goes for 11.6 miles, and ends at about 6,500 feet on the continental divide in Montana.
I hiked with two other gentlemen, one half my age—I’m fifty-seven—who is a hiker, and another who is about three to four years younger than me and an avid long-distance road biker. Now, I love to hike, but the last time I did anything of significance was over three years ago. The time before that was about six years ago.
As always, I started my day with the AIM Garden Trio® and my regimen of AIM nutrition. We began hiking about 9:00 a.m., with me in the lead on a very steep grade. I had so much energy, I pulled away from these two guys who are in quite good shape. I kept having to wait for them, and once they caught up, I’d quickly pull away from them again. Neither of them could believe it. It was a warm, dry day, and along the way, I took another serving of AIM BarleyLife® and two servings of AIM Peak Endurance® and CalciAIM™ mixed in sixteen ounces of water. I couldn’t contain the energy! I led the party to a time of 4 hours, 44 minutes in 11.6 miles at altitude. We weren’t racing, just moving along quickly. Aside from the energy, I felt no effects of the altitude while, by comparison, they were breathing heavily.
The story gets better.
In the past, every time I hiked strenuously, afterward I was extremely stiff in my thighs, knees, and hips. This is because I hold nothing back and go all out. I hike so infrequently that the next day my thighs are so stiff and sore I can barely walk. So, I thought I’d test out AIM Magnificence™ because I knew I would hike hard and pay the price.
When I returned to the place I was staying, I immediately poured one quarter cup of Mag-nificence crystals into the bathtub and soaked for twenty-minutes. I could feel my legs relaxing. By the time I came out of the tub, I felt absolutely no soreness, stiffness, or pain in my legs or joints. This is amazing – the first time this has ever happened to me!
My wife, Sue, and I feel the AIM products are a cornerstone of our lives. And now we have yet another product to add to the lineup. I am a true believer in the powers of magnesium, in the form of Mag-nificence!
Thanks for continuing to put out the best nutritional products anywhere!
