Herbalife-Sponsored Heather Jackson Combines Nutrition and Training to Win Triathlons

Heather Jackson pushes herself to the limit to win. Her steady climb in the world rankings is the result of hard work, a positive outlook, aggressive tactics and determination.

“When it comes to training and competing, hitting a plateau is inevitable,” says Jackson. “It’s my job to work that much harder and go beyond it.”

Jackson’s career as a triathlete has skyrocketed since she turned pro in 2009. She most recently won the prestigious 2015 IRONMAN Coeur d’Alene in Idaho, beating her fellow competitors with the fastest bike split and marathon of the day. Her win in the race makes her a factor for the 2015 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. She’s also taken top spots at several IRONMAN 70.3 triathlons, having set a course record at the 2014 Wildflower Long Course Triathlon.

“I’m grateful to be racing against high-level athletes on a consistent basis,” says Jackson. “We’re all competitive and we all push each other to be better.”

The Herbalife24® sports nutrition line has been integral to Jackson’s training and racing over the past few years. The wide range of products takes the guess work out of her hydration, fueling and recovery, and lets her focus more on her training.

“Herbalife® products are exactly what I need as an endurance athlete – something for before, during and after every training session or race,” says Jackson.

Jackson drinks Herbalife24® Rebuild Endurance, following a workout to replenish her protein and carbohydrate stores and Herbalife24® Hydrate to keep her electrolyte levels in balance.*

Herbalife is the Global Nutrition Partner of Heather Jackson because she shares the Herbalife commitment to good nutrition. Herbalife24® helps athletes of all levels get optimal nutrition.

“Herbalife support has been an absolute game-changer to my triathlon career,” says Jackson.
