H2O Overdrive™ Welcomes Thomas Dooley, US Soccer Hall of Famer, as an Athlete Ambassador

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Feb 15, 2012) - Innovative Health Solutions, LLC (IHS), makers of H2O Overdrive™ and H2O Overdrive HYDRATE™, is excited to welcome U.S. Soccer Hall of Famer, Thomas Dooley, as an H2O Overdrive™ athlete ambassador.

"It is an honor to work with Thomas Dooley," said Randy Olshen, Co-founder of IHS. "Not only is he one of the best soccer players of his time, he continues to train and strive to pass on his expertise to the rising generation. We are proud to welcome him into our athlete ambassador program."

When the U.S. hosted the 1994 FIFA World Cup, Dooley started and played every minute of the U.S. team's four matches as the team's center of the defense. Dooley was named the U.S. Soccer Male Athlete of the Year in 1993 and 1994, and was continually recognized for his greatness in the sport until he was ultimately inducted into the U.S. Soccer Hall of Fame in 2010.

"I am excited to partner with H2O Overdrive™," Thomas Dooley said. "As an athlete, you are constantly in the eyes of spectators and media. I played 20 years professionally at the highest level and believe me; I know it is important to be on top of the game. H2O Overdrive™ helps me to do that with confidence that I am fueling my body properly."

H2O Overdrive™ is currently endorsed by over 100 athlete ambassadors all dedicated to superior health and fitness.

"Our athletes not only love the taste of H2O Overdrive™, they love the targeted physiological benefits that it delivers," said Terry Giles, Co-Founder and developer of H2O Overdrive™.

"We designed H2O Overdrive™ as our professional formula specifically for our athletes," Giles said. "It has a scientifically developed formula of over 30 essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, protein, complex carbohydrates and a balanced electrolyte matrix designed to ensure hydration at the intracellular level and it contains only three grams of sugar. That's one-tenth the amount of sugar in other sports beverages."

"Our other formula, H2O Overdrive HYDRATE™, was designed to meet the hydration needs for a wider range of active individuals and athletes of any age," he said.

H2O Overdrive HYDRATE™ has zero grams of sugar and delivers the same balanced electrolyte matrix and 3 grams of 100% whey protein isolate, 9 grams of complex carbohydrates and over 30 vitamins, minerals and amino acids essential to hydration, energy, stamina, performance and recovery.
