The Pur Pak story began when an anxiety ridden, overworked, stressed out, and tremendously unhealthy corporate executive was introduced to a health driven visionary couple and the founders of TriFit Club and Studios. That executive was Stephen McPherson, and he walked through the doors of TriFit in early 2008 at a crossroad, looking for a true life change in his health.
TriFit is a unique concept in health clubs, owned by Bernard and Gina Baski, a couple who have dedicated their lives to building a community whose success is confirmed in the life changing stories of the people who have become a part of what they call their “ever expanding family”. Steve quickly became part of the TriFit family and committed to changing his life. Over the next year Steve lost weight, took charge of his personal health, and signed up for a triathlon, even with the best efforts at a balanced diet and supplement regimen he still struggled with his nutritional needs.
Stephen approached the Baski’s with an idea; he asked them to help him find a simple solution to complete supplementation, that idea is what has become Pur Pak. Stephen, Gina, and Bernard took their personal experience and knowledge, and spent nearly three years with PhD Bio-Chemists, Registered Dietitians, Nutritionists, and Athletes researching and developing this revolutionary product. Many of the initial labs wanted to add artificial stimulants for energy, others suggested using low quality ingredients for the “marketing effect”. Collectively they advised cutting corners to drive “cost savings” with the justification of “that’s what everyone else does.” This only drove the team’s conviction and passion more fervently.
After an exhaustive process they found an FDA approved laboratory that shared their passion and insistence for efficacy, quality, and integrity. Rich with anti-oxidants Pur Pak provides a balanced approach to maintaining a healthier more energetic lifestyle. The LA Times calls Pur Pak "a tamer more healthful approach [to energy drinks] than Monster, Red Bull or Killer Buzz.”
With Pur Pak and his training community by his side Steve went on to complete his first Ironman Triathlon and reached his lowest weight in over a decade. Pur Pak was not developed as a cure-all, a short-cut, or the quickest way to weight loss, it was developed as an integral part of a balanced approach to healthy living in a world where balance is hard to achieve. Whether you are a “Super Mom”, an athlete, or a hard charging executive, they hope that Pur Pak can help guide you in your journey so that you too can live your best life possible.
