By | high altitude | No Comments

Follow team Mission Summit on the journey that will place them high above the cities of the world. A journey that will take us to far off places, and attempt to climb the 7 Tallest volcanoes of the world!

Mission Summit mission is to help fund the fight against cancer and represent a passion for the outdoors combined with a chance to give back.

Mt Rainier

“We just got back from our latest trip and climb on Mt Rainier in Washington. Again the product leading up to the climb and while on the climb was perfect. We added our newest team member to our rope team JP Tabor, and he has had a real bad run with altitude sickness. we shipped him down product and had him going for 4 weeks with the EPO boost, Altitude RX and the Tri-fuel. He had no elevation problems at all!

On this trip there was loss of life with one of the climbers we were with. His name was Arvin. he and his climbing partner we caught out in a blizzard coming off the summit and he died from hypothermia and frostbite. We were able to save his climbing partner Monique Richard, and another climber named Mike Salk. We used the Invigor8 and the Tri fuel to help aid in their recovery process as we helped them through the struggle through out the day after the rescue. We are happy to report that both survived.

Thank you for everything you all do and we cannot do this without you all! We will be dedicating our next climb in honor of Arvin! Articles are up if you search Mt Rainier about what happened. What we do is very dangerous, and we understand that this will happen. But we as team Mission Summit will continue to climb and push ourselves to climb higher and farther!”*

Expedition Mountaineering

Competitive Highlights

  • Guinness Book World Record Holder for the highest altitude Luge descent. Bolivia
  • First ascent of Mount Hope, Alaska televised nationwide on ABC, a world peace expedition.
  • First person to wakeboard the Amazon River. Brazil-Bolivia.
  • Record holder of the highest altitude ski board descent Mt. Chacaltaya.
  • Wreck dive of the PLM off the coast of Newfoundland in Iceburg Alley near the Titanic. Mapped new passages in a cave system in Newfoundland revealing an underwater river of white water miles below the surface of the Earth.
  • Numerous first rock climbing ascents, naming & documenting the climb for others.
  • After surviving a massive genetic heart failure I have trained each day to raise my ejection fraction from 15 to now 45 & have been running 5K’s each month, I am training for my first triathlon this year & a marathon in Iceland.

 How EPO-Boost works for me

“With EPO Boost I recover faster & have more endurance during my workouts. This past year I had massive genetic heart failure, as a lifelong mountain sport athlete I was devastated. I had to stop all supplements while my body adjusted to the new blood pressure medicine. I never felt worse; I had an ejection fraction of 15 & was told I had 5 years to live by my cardiologist.Then my wife & I spoke about quality of life verses quantity & I realized that I needed to get back in the gym and back in the mountains, doing what I love best regardless of the consequences.

So I retired from my career as a state police officer & became a full time ‘disadvantaged’ athlete. My doctor approved EPO Boost & I began a long road to recovery, which is where I’m still at now, but my ejection fraction is now 45, almost normal & my doctors are not telling me that I’m going to die anymore.

In fact, one test revealed that through training alone my arteries leading up to my heart are that of an 18 year old.

I leave for an expedition to Iceland this August where I will attempt to set the Guinness Book World Record for the fastest face first Luge sled down Iceland’s highest peak. I have been running 5K’s each month & I’m in training for my first triathlon. Thank you EPO Boost for helping me take my life back & make my dreams come true.”*

 

The 2013 Icelandic Wild Heart Expedition

Press Release-Expedition Outreach, a charitable organization founded in 1995 will be traveling to Iceland in August of 2013 to set the Guinness Book World Record for the fastest ‘Alpine’ face first Luge. Team Leader Michael Coyne who holds the ‘Official’ World record for the highest altitude Luge run in Bolivia will now attempt to be the fastest person on Earth using an ‘Alpine’ Skeleton style sled.

The team is a group of environmentally conscious explorers & athletes who educate people about the World Peace Process & other worthwhile causes by taking the publicity they receive from their ‘extreme’ sporting & mountaineering adventures, expeditions, races & events & focus it on education & awareness.

From broadcasting live from the summit of a previously unclimbed peak in Alaska across the nation on ABC Television to being the first to Wakeboard the Amazon River & Mountain Bike across Bolivia’s ‘Altiplano’, the highest altitude desert in the world. . Team EO captures the attention & imaginations of our audience.

A few years ago Team Leader Michael Coyne had genetic heart failure in the transition zone of a triathlon equivalent to 2 massive heart attacks & had to retire from his career as a Massachusetts State Trooper. “As a lifelong athlete I was devastated”. Michael stated but he is now training full time for Iceland determined to come back stronger than ever: Inspiring all those who have experienced adversity in their lives.

Iceland is only the first of a series of expeditions that will take Team EO across the globe from Thailand/Bhutan, New Zealand to Costa Rica & Africa the team will be filming for a documentary project about facing our fears & understanding the nature of our planet & our own hearts.

Climb to Kilimanjaro

Products used – EPO-Boost, Altitude Rx and TriFuel®

How EPO-Boost works for us

“I entered a contest with Coors Carling Beer as to where I would like to drink a pint of Carling Beer. I won and was allowed to take a couple of fellow firemen with me on the expedition to Mt Kilimanjaro. We contacted your company about Altitude RX (high altitude supplement). You recommend two other supplements EPO-Boost (to get more oxygen to our muscles) and TriFuel® (to provide the extra energy, mental focus and muscle recovery) for our trip. We want to thank-you for providing those products to us. Glen McCloy

Dec 20,2011 We have done some training on the mountains in the UK and have stepped up our fitness plans at work I’m sure/hope we will be ok. I have been taking Epo-boost now for 5 weeks, I have noticed that when running or cycling I am not as out of breath. I took a vo2 max test last week and my vo2 max has also increased since the last time I was tested. My colleagues and I are fascinated by your products and are amazed at how they work and what goes into making them.”* Glen McCloy

January 26, 2012

“Just to say thank you for supplying us with your products all I can say is wow, We felt like the bionic man. We managed to get to the top without any symptoms of AMS not even a slight headache.

On day 4 one of our porters started to go down with AMS, I told our head guide to give him a litre of TriFuel®. Half an hour later he looked like a new man, Our head guide was amazed at this so he came to see us as he couldn’t understand why we had not had any headaches and had set such a good pace, we then shown him the products you gave us and we offered him some TriFuel® for his bottle the next day.

The day after Charles our head guide and Damas our assistant guide both came to the tent asking if they could have some more, they were amazed and now knew why we were going at such a good pace.On summit night our guide said because we had set such a good pace we would set off at 0100hrs, this was slightly worrying as we noticed groups setting off as early as 1000hrs.Anyway we had breakfast at 1230hrs where Charles said with our pace he expected us to overtake at least 4 groups, we in fact went past 5 groups and at one point started to run in order to get past a group before a slight scramble. On one of the days we were walking we had noticed it was getting a bit steep, we stopped for a rest and drank a litre of TriFuel® each. We then continued to walk and after about 10 minutes we just looked at each other and laughed I said to John and Steve do you feel ok they both replied “Yes,we feel amazing it must be the TriFuel®”, you can actually feel it work it makes so much difference.

Anyway as promised I have attached some pictures of us at the top with all 3 of your flags and as I said we will do anything you like for advertising for you as you were good enough to give us the products. Also you were mentioned in three UK news papers one was the Sunday Sun one of the biggest in the UK.
Hope to hear from you soon and a massive thank you to you and all your staff good luck for the future.”*

Many many thanks

Glen Steve & John
