HYROX athletes need ready-to-drink, thirst-quenching recovery beverages after their competitions, and we’re excited to provide them with a solution that offers the functionality of electrolytes with the muscle building powers of protein.”
Whey protein, found in PWR LIFT, has been shown to help repair tired muscles while increasing and preserving lean muscle mass. Whey has been described as a complete and easy-to-absorb, high-quality protein that promotes muscle growth and maintenance when combined with strength training and can help reduce inflammation and soreness.

Participants around the world compete in the same race on the same course and wear a timing chip to receive their individual finishing time, with comparable results through HYROX’s Global Rankings across all events. Each season culminates with the World Championships where the athletes with the fastest times from each division in each city compete.
Founder of HYROX, Christian Töetzke, says, “With our 21/22 season ending on such a high at the phenomenal World Championship in Las Vegas, we can’t wait to get our next set of races in the US started. PWR LIFT was a natural choice for us to partner with for 22/23 to provide our HYROX athletes with a top-quality product which enhances recovery; an element everyone should pay close attention to after racing and training to leave you feeling your best and ready for your next HYROX race!”
