We love those people that shush the naysayers, break the mould and generally kick-ass. In fact we love them so much that we thought we’d tell you a little about the ones we think are really blazing their own gorilla trail.

We’ll keep you posted on all his progress.
“Cricket is a really physically tasking sport which requires a lot of well-thought-out nutritional planning, so during the day I am often looking to boost my diet with protein and other greens. I found the best way to do that was with Gorilla Juice, it’s quick to make, a complete protein and even has the superfoods I need to help me with mental recovery too. It’s perfect to take with me on tours as I don’t have to worry about eating crappy snacks when out on the road, and it tastes better than any other protein shake I’ve had. I never used to use plant-based products but now I really feel the benefits of them, less bloating and more natural tasting. The team at Gorilla Juice really care about making something that’s good for you and they do it with a big smile on their face too.”

That didn’t stop our Vick… oh no. Vickie started her road to recovery by training non-stop for 2 whole years before defying all doctors’ opinions by not only walking again but getting herself back into the GB cycling team.

“The Falcons have a really good team culture which is evident whenever you watch them play, it’s an exciting move for me and I’m looking forward to getting up there.”
