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.

How EPO-Boost works for me (User since April, 2011)

“TriFuel® rocks!! I have place podium in my last 6 winter races so far this year and I cannot thank you and TriFuel® enough! Bring on St.Croix on May 5th in attempt for that golden Kona slot!!!

I cannot say enough GREAT words about TRIFUEL AND EPO BOOST! 1st and foremost. I have been waiting to give a recap of my training/racing season because its not over yet. This is it so far, St.Croix half iron- 6th age grp, Fairlee trifest olympic-2nd age grp, half marathon in Maine 2nd age grp, Timberman halfiron-11th agegrp stacked field, Lobsterman olympic- sept 14  I have felt very strong after taking a year and a half off from triathlon, actually stronger than ever because of my ace nutrition!! I am already planning a full triathlon season for next year including a full Ironman again  I LOVE TriFuel® and Epo boost and so does my body!!

2012

I am an endurance athlete and have been using TriFuel® and EPO Boost for almost two years and will keep using both products for the length of my training and racing career. I noticed an increase in performance within a month of taking both TriFuel® and EPO Boost. Not only did they help sustain peak performance while training or racing, but also my recovery is fantastic! I am able to train intensly or race within a short amount of time from the previous intense workout without soreness or feeing tied.
I’m a competitive age group athlete always in hopes for a podium finish, since TriFuel® and EPO Boost, I have been placing top 3 in my age group at almost all my races which include trail running, all distance triathlon, marathon running and cycling. Both products are helping e reach my goals as a competitive athlete.
I truly believe in these products. I have recommended them to many other athletes and they too have had increased energy and performance. If you want positive results, I highly recommend adding TriFuel® and EPO Boost to your nutrition regimen.*

Believe in your body and passion for fitness,

How BRL Sports supplements works for me (User since January 2013)

“I just wanted to let you know that I competed in my first running race of the season, the Firefighters 10 Mile Road Race, in Thunder Bay, ON. This is the 3rd oldest road race in Canada and it attracted about 1100 competitors this year. My goal was to run under 60 min, as my previous two attempts have been just over (61, and 63 minutes). With perfect conditions I ran in a time of 57 min, 13 seconds, placing me 11th overall and 3rd in my age category of 20- 24! These results have been possible because I have trained exclusively with BRL Nutritional products the last 2 years! I fuelled up with Trifuel before the race, and I never needed a single feed!

I wanted to thank you and BRL for your support over this last year. TriFuel® is by far the best tasting and most effective sport drink I have ever tried. Workouts are now much more enjoyable because of it. As well, EPO Boost has been very helpful in improving my endurance capacity. This past season saw many new PB’s reached, including a 26th place in the 15km skate at Canadian Eastern Championship, as well as a 35th in the 50km at Nationals.

TriFuel® has helped me push through workouts that normally I would end by fueling my body with the proper balance of sugars, electrolytes and other essential vitamins.”*

How EPO-Boost and TriFuel work for me (User since September, 2011)

“During long hard training sessions and races you need that extra boost of energy to push yourself to the limit. Afterwards, you need it again to recover. EPO-Boost and TriFuel® give me that extra “Boost”* – Knute Johnsgaard
