Blend Retreat is renowned for its three F’s – fellowship, food and FITNESS!  We aim to not only feed your bellies and spirits but to also make you sweat.  Along with the trail run on Friday, the hike on Saturday and yoga on Sunday, we’ll also have a hardcore bootcamp on Saturday morning.
Meet Gnarly Nutrition – our Bootcamp Sponsor!  Read below to see what sets them apart (and pssst – there’s a GIVEAWAY at the bottom!).
1.  Who IS Gnarly Nutrition?
Gnarly Nutrition is focused on creating clean sports nutrition that tastes delicious and is all natural.  Gnarly does not use artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.  We source the highest quality ingredients we can find from our non-GMO flavors and sweeteners to our grass-fed sourced whey protein that is free of hormones and antibiotics.  
2.  What is your mission at Gnarly?
Our mission is to help individuals remove excuses.  Athletes push possibilities and Champions crush limits.  As a company based out of Salt Lake City, we have turned our backyard into a testing ground for our sponsored athletes to fully test themselves and our products.  With over 30 professional athletes on our team from a number of different disciplines, we get a lot of feedback from the very people that rely on our products to help them perform and function at their very best each day.
3.  Tell us more about your product line.
We have a number of products from our all natural pre-workout to help you get the most out of your workout to our grass-fed whey protein for post workout.  We also have a slimming protein, a full meal replacement, a vegan meal replacement and branched chain amino acids.  Go here for a full list of our products!
4.  How will you be involved with Blend 2015?
We are excited to be involved with Blend Retreat this year by sponsoring the Boot Camp portion of the retreat.  One of our Ambassadors, Kindal Boyle will be running all participants through a great workout that will be a ton of fun.  Afterwards we will have samples of our all natural whey protein for attendees to try out.
