Vitalyte is proud to announce Hunter and Yates Johnson as the newest members of Team Vitalyte. This up and coming American doubles team has been playing tennis since they were old enough to hold a racquet. Born in Taos New Mexico, the twins participated in many sports when including skiing, hockey and baseball. At the age of twelve, the Johnson family relocated to Phoenix so the boys could have the advantage of playing tennis year round. While in Arizona, Hunter and Yates won three consecutive state doubles titles before moving to Texas for their senior year. During the final year of high school, the twins added another state doubles title to their collection of victories before setting their sights on their college career at SMU. While playing for the Peruna’s, the boys set a school record for the most doubles wins and were ranked as high as 12th in the nation. Since graduating from college in May of 2017, the team has risen to 390 in the ATP doubles rankings with seven tournament victories. Hunter and Yates started using Vitalyte as their electrolyte replacement drink of choice when they were fourteen years old. They were introduced to the product when they were ball boys at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells and haven’t used anything else since then. These rising stars “believe in the product” and “are committed to becoming the next great American doubles team.” They have trained with the legendary Bob and Mike Bryan, “It’s a twin thing,” as the boys put it. When Hunter and Yates Johnson aren’t on the court they enjoy hanging with their dog, sharpening their ping pong skills or finding some time to wake board. Vitalyte wishes them the best this season and will be cheering from the sidelines as they Electrolyte It Up!

You swear every year this IS the year you WILL stick to your resolution. In the gym by 6am, sugary foods are a thing of the past and you are going to improve your hydration by trading your favorite vintage for an electrolyte replacement drink. You have taken the oath in front of golden retriever so you have witnesses. You mean business! So why with all this great intended effort do 92 percent of all new year’s resolutions fail? Unless you have a personalized licensed plate that reads “8prcntr,” it’s likely your favorite furry friend will be reminding you just eight weeks into 2018 you aren’t living up to your end of the deal!
So what is behind this astonishing attrition rate? After all, your mother always told you to keep your word. You are on time to work everyday, you never miss your friends’ birthdays, and there isn’t a dinner reservation that has ever slipped your mind. You are the Brett Favre of reliability to show on game day. Well we have a few theories on why the luster of these whole-hearted intentions loses its shine.
The Focus On Negativity
If you think about it, many of the resolutions we make are formed in a negative connotation.
- “I have to lose weight”
- “I don’t want to be stressed”
- “I have to stop spending so much money”
The negativity in turn becomes stressful in and of itself because you are focusing on things you “can’t” or “don’t want” to do. Remember when your parents told you “you can’t be out past 10pm.” Didn’t it make you a little upset and tempted you to force the envelope a little? So instead rephrase your goals to sound something like this:
- “I would like to get in better shape”
- “Being stress-free is what I’m shooting for”
- “It’s easy to save money”
Resolutions Are Too Strict
Making resolutions that are too strict is a sure way to set oneself up for failure. Being in the gym at 6am may not be realistic every day. Instead set yourself up for success by taking your situation into consideration. If you aim to get into better shape, give yourself the freedom to get your exercise in when its reasonable. Also, don’t force yourself onto a fitness timeline. Studies show that people who lose weight over time as compared to those who crash diet and crash exercise, keep the weight off longer. There’s something to be said about slow and steady winning the race.
The “Why” Behind The Commitment
If you can find the reason why you are making a resolution, chances are you will devote yourself to the goal longer. Having some “skin in the game” or a sense of true personal commitment definitely motivates one to stick to something longer. For instance if your goal is to get into better shape find out your reasoning why you want to become more fit. Is it to look better, do you want to feel better, or do you want to live a healthier lifestyle? If you can be honest with yourself regarding your motivating factors, chances are you can make a deeper commitment. After spending some time talking it over with yourself you might realize your desire to “look better” is fine, but your desire to be good to yourself and live a healthier lifestyle is even stronger. That commitment to oneself is what will motivate you to the finish line!
We hope 2018 is a great year for you whether your resolutions are carried through to December 31st or not. If you’re an “8prcntr” congratulations! And if not, remember Rome wasn’t built in a day and the Italians sure know how to live the good life: A little wine, great food, good friends and plenty of R & R!

At Vitalyte one thing we love about mom's is the encouragement they provide. Those famous words, "You can be whatever you want to be!" Or even, "You can do whatever you put your mind to!" We thought a lot about those sayings when we were thinking about our brand identity. After many hours around the think tank and countless of mom's homemade cookies, we finally came up with what we felt embodied our brand, our ideal, our lifestyle. What Vitalyte are you? Are you the weekend warrior who just feels out of sorts if Sunday goes by without a few miles run on the pavement? Or are you the busy on the go young working adult who squeezes in a six am yoga class before your hour long commute? Whether it's cardio that calls to you or you crave the calm, we have a Vitalyte for you. So what do electrolyte replacement drinks have to do with getting to the office on time? Well we feel that you can't be the best you in this world if you aren't properly hydrated. Science knows that a properly hydrated body is better equipped to handle stress, has quicker motor skills and sharper mental functioning as compared to a body that is dehydrated. So next time you roll your eyes at your mom when she asks, "When you are going to have children already.?" You can calmly smile and say, "I love you mom. Remember that time you told me I could be doctor if I wanted to?"
It’s that time of year when the hard courts of Melbourne are finally recovering from two weeks of tough play and clay courts world-wide are being prepped and groomed for what will be a great season. Yes tennis is back and ready to take center stage this spring. As history books tell us, long matches such as the iconic Michael Chang win over Ivan Lendl in the the fourth round of the 1989 French Open, often reveal the winner after all is left on the court. Who can forget the young American rallying back from two sets down, cramping so badly he was forced to serve underhand. He frustrated the world’s number one and eventually won the match and went on to win the tournament, becoming the youngest male ever to win a grand slam title! Boys and girls everywhere watched the grit and determination this teenager from Southern California displayed. Chang was one of many great young American players at that time: A sassy rebel from Las Vegas named Andre Agassi was on this list. So was the steady Los Angeles resident with cat-like moves called Pete Sampras. And who could forget the student of the sport from Dade City, Florida who would also go on to be a world number one, Jim Courier. These greats inspired the boom in youth tennis and are in-part responsible for the resurgence of American tennis we see today. Fortunately the boys and girls on-the-rise in this great sport have many resources available to them including: State of the art surfaces to play on, advancement in racquet and string technology and of course the best that sports nutrition has to offer. At Vitalyte we are proud that many great junior players enjoy our product. Spencer Brachman who recently placed third in the Boy’s 14’s at the prestigious Orange Bowl and Tristan Boyer who is ranked number one in California both enjoy Vitalyte and understand the importance of being properly hydrated. Vitalyte’s forty year proven formula is free from anything artificial and is a great kids electrolyte replacement drink. So whether your child is a teenage phenom or looking to improve in the rankings, we have the perfect hydration formula for you to help them follow in the footsteps of the American legends!
Vitalyte. We keep a package of it on the table at all times and insist team members use it when they refill their water bottles.

We are so thankful that we have this product to help keep our team healthy in the hot humid conditions in Haiti.Missions International of America takes several education, medical and construction teams to Savanette, Haiti every year. We can’'t imagine how we would take care of our teams without
Today's modern athletes have all the latest and greatest resources available to them to ensure they are making the most out of their natural ability. From precise golf swing analysis to discovering the benefits of altitude training for runners, science is helping athletes throw farther, jump higher and run faster. The science of hydration though, hasn't changed much over the years. We know, as we have for many decades, that even a slight amount of dehydration can significantly impact performance. And we know water alone is not enough to properly hydrate the body during activity. An athlete needs a constant supply of electrolytes during activity to help stay adequately hydrated and stave off fatigue. While sports beverages were developed to help athletes combat dehydration, many contain high amounts of sugar and sodium and are made with artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. A high performing body can't be at its best if it isn't getting the best fuel. That's why at Vitalyte we make our electrolyte drink mix with non-GMO ingredients and we use only natural ingredients as a sweetener. Plus our formula is free from anything artificial and is low in sodium. So while science should take center stage in creating football helmets that are more protective and turf that is more shock absorbing, we think nature should play a big role when it comes to the modern athlete's electrolyte drink.
