Sebastian Copeland is a photographer, filmmaker, extreme athlete and environmental activist who dreamed of tackling a Polar Expedition since he was a child. Reading about the exploration of the Polar regions piqued an interest that carried through into his adult years. Once Sebastian focused on turning his dreams into reality, he knew he needed to focus on his training to achieve a successful result.
Starting with sound nutrition was critical. He knew his body would not be able to stand against the rigors of a harsh polar environment. Being able to overcome adverse conditions was the top priority, so training began to improve stamina, muscle strength, cardiovascular performance and mental attitude. Part of Sebastian’s diet included Herbalife products.
During training, he used Herbalife 24 Prolong. Sebastian found this powdered supplement to be flavorful and easy to ingest. Herbalife 24 Prolong is a blend of maltodextrin and low-glycemic fructose which facilitates the utilization of carbohydrates helps reduce muscle breakdown during exercise and helps the body maintain a good environment for proper muscle contraction. It also has 500% daily value of Vitamin C for scavenging cell-damaging free radicals and B Vitamins to support carbohydrate metabolism. Incorporating Herbalife 24 into his training program was easy and effective, helping him to reach his goal to be in top physical and mental form for the challenge ahead.
Out on the ice and snow during his expedition he had to pull 200 to 400 pounds of gear on a sled behind him. Having to traverse these snowfields eight to 13 hours per day, Copeland found using the Herbalife 24 shakes while on the trail kept him energized and alert. The exertion on his body pushed him to his limits, but his training and prep work kept his stamina up so he could finish his expedition. Now he travels to the polar regions regularly, filming stories, providing immersive experiences for children and adults alike and bringing awareness of the environmental issues facing the polar regions today.
In 1980, when Mark Hughes created and began selling Herbalife weight management products from the trunk of his car, he couldn’t have imagined the impact the Herbalife brand of products has made on athletes and adventurers around the globe today.
