Shaun were both introduced to Neways by a member of their Dartmouth
rowing club and the crew was fortunate enough to be accepted into
the Neways product sponsorship programme. “Knowing how
important supplementation is, especially when you are training
at the peak of fitness, we naturally jumped at the opportunity”
said Yorkie Lomas.
and during the trip, the four rowers used the following Neways
Recovery Plus, Alleviate, Sunbrero, Rebound
and Lipceutical. When asked about which products he used and how
they helped him, Yorkie replied:- “Like the others,
I took all the supplements before and during the race. I found
they really kept me going and gave me a fighting edge. The after
sun cream, Sunbrero is really good too. The sun was so intense
during the day I really felt it easing the heat on my skin at
night. I have been so impressed with the products that, since
my return, I not only continue to use them but I am seriously
thinking of becoming a Neways' Distributor”.
